Past in Flames
Each instant and sorcery card in your graveyard gains flashback until end of turn. The Flashback cost is equal to its mana cost.
Flashback (You may cast this car from your graveyard for its flashback cost. Then exile it.)
Past in Flames Discussion

Not the dracogenius. Almost all of this deck was put together from what I first started off as for a jumping point, then I used cards from several other decks online and youtube videos to improve it. I think it has a ton of fine tuning and some testing, but once I get the rest of the maybe board purchased I will start shifting things around and playing around with it more.
Past in Flames looks good. Never even considered that. So I will consider that later on. I did have the parun in my deck, but I swapped him out for something I deemed much better for now which was the Etherium Sculptor for another infinite combo.

Awesome take on this deck!
I see that the Locus god is fairly new at the head of this deck, but looking at what you have here I find myself wanting to take more advantage of his specific abilities.
Have you considered Drowned Rusalka , Carnage Altar or other effects of that sort? You can turn the tokens into mana - why not cards? And the Rusalka goes infinite with Alhammarret's Archive and Phyrexian Altar
The deck seems super blue heavy, and I think lacks some of the power red could offer. I especially note the lack of Past in Flames
Was the previous general Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius ? Where is he?

Baral, Chief of Compliance . The first ability is a redundant with Mizzix. Could be worth it if you wanna be that guy who runs loads of counters.
Enigma Drake . Bit of a non-bo if you start exiling your graveyard spells.

I applaud you , I can see you put a lot of time and effort when building this deck. At the current moment after reading your deck list and your primer for it I won't be able to give you a constructive detailed response just yet, however I greatly appreciate the uniqueness of the build, it fills my inner Timmy with joy seeing these types of builds.
Now for the suggestions I have, off the top of my head on what I can think that would work with your type of deck build is Conflux , it's a bit costly but a copied Conflux can win you the game. With Ramos on the field it becomes tremendous value and a card refill as well. The main problem I see with this type of deck is running out of resources extremely quick. I can see you rectify that problem with using cards like Past in Flames , Yawgmoth's Will , as well as burst draw X cards.
I do like you are using Bonus Round one of my favorite cards to use on "storm" turns. Hence why I would also reiterate the suggestion of using Conflux because any conjunction of cards you would pair with it makes it extreme value and a pseudo-wincon on it's own.
Looking forward to hearing what you think on my thoughts~

you'll need 5 land (4 of which can tap for blue and 1 that can tap for red) a bear on the field, 2 rituals and gifts in hand.
float 4 blue and 1 red.
cast rituals to 5 red: storm count 2
opponent gives you a ritual and an opt
cast ritual: 5 red, storm count 4
flash back Past in Flames , storm count 5: 1 red
flash back all rituals in yard (4 total): storm count 9, 9 red
opponent will likely give you Past in Flames and noxious.
cast noxious putting grapshot on top of your library: storm count 11
cast opt drawing grapeshot. storm count 12, 1 blue
cast Past in Flames : storm count 13, 4 red
cast grape shot but remand the original putting it back in your hand.
doing 13 damage, storm count 15 0 blue, 3 red
cast grapeshot for the kill.
this is the least mana intensive deterministic kill that I can come up with. please check it though and make sure that I sequenced it correctly and didn't over look a simpler path.I picked those opponents choices for gifts because I feel like they where the worst case scenario so any other options could be simpler

I feel like Past in Flames is an obvious include for the spellslinger/ Doomsday version of Grenzo because you can put it in the yard with him and then play all your stuff straight from there, including Doomsday and all your rituals a second time.

Much appreciated! I have to say I think it's the most fun deck I've built yet. Thus far every win has been off the top and unexpected. Probably my favorite inclusion of what you mentioned is Possibility Storm for how much it 1) does not hinder Ramos' cascade minded build 2) Hoses combo decks entirely 3) Doubles up cast triggers & storm count for yourself. Potential to hard lock combo with Lavinia, Azorius Renegade but I'm too much a coward to run her since her being cloned or stolen would hose a literal 1/5 of the deck haha.
I know the counter doublers are common in Ramos, but I've found he becomes plenty lethal & ramp already and that his real struggle is keeping up with draw & protecting him - I just added Padeem, Consul of Innovation & multiple modal counterspells. Fear of the "win more" aside, I do think I want to test out Corpsejack Menace at some point. I may also be more hesitant because I already run Atraxa, Praetors' Voice as a commander and I'd rather avoid too much overlap.
I wanted to ask about your inclusion of Phyresis as your infect source- is it not an issue to cascade into it pre-Ramos? Or do you hold your cascade til after he's out?
In your article you mentioned the benefit of running modal counterspells (charms) for cascade synergy- I see none now but I do see Trap Essence . What made you decide to make that transition? Ramos gets to 5 counters and is "online" but it could also do nothing on an unlucky cascade. AKA could you please sell me on it vs Dromar's Charm ?
How would you rate Kathari Remnant ? I'm indecisive on adding more cascade and if so which ones.
I think many try to go "all in" with Sunforger by including Tithe , Mistveil Plains , Stoneforge Mystic , etc. but I think it'll work better for Ramos just as as it is. Your deck atm is already 10 potential targets inclusive to counterspells, protection, draw, removal, search... I'm not sure yet but I think it should work well.
Hope I'm not overloading, just excited for a new deck and there's zero other Ramos players in any of my meta.
