Have you thought about Pyromancer's Goggles?

It started with Hidden Strings and Darksteel Reactor because I liked the flow of Hidden Strings ciphered + mana-storage lands. Thrummingbird came along since its flying made it a good target for the Cipher while doubling my mana lands. I eventually looked for cooky counters to Proliferate (infect was a bit too strong for the multiplayer-casual environment I was building for and have yet to build a alt win-con deck) so I found Darksteel Reactor. came in because Dismantle- along with Pyromancer's Goggles and Ral Zarek (possibility of going infinite with ult and enough proliferation, plus his tap/utap +1 was great for mana rocks and the goggles). 1 Dismantle let me jump from 5 counters to 10 and a copied pair jumped that to 20 giving me a out-of-the blue insta win.
I never built the deck since Darksteel is a pricy card for my standards and a bit too threatening- i'd most likely get jumped the second I put 2-3 counters on it once my friend group knew I was running dismantle.
Then I found out proliferate was amazing with mana rocks that use counters like Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia. I still liked Ral's interaction with my mana rocks and thought Volt Charge would be fun with the goggles so I came to my current deck Untap X-Spells which proliferate-ramps mana to dump into Fireball-esqe spells for a finisher. Had to find an alt win con since one of our friends was bringing a player-hexproof deck which would render the game unwinnable but found some good allies in Ludevic's Test Subject Flip and Slumbering Dragon. Plus, Manifold Key can give the big boi a backdoor.
Deck works alright but I usually have 15+ mana for a finisher but never draw one. End up passing mid-late game while topdecking and lose before the big zap. Figured Firemind's Research could give me a mana dump and carddraw and works nicely with Flux Channeler for a storm-like deck. I'll probably order 2 of each and drop the Thrummingbirds. Untap X-Spells Storm Prolif-TriggerI was wondering what I could accomplish if I put more eggs in the cantrip basket when I stumbled across your deck and found out ha!
Your deck reminds me of the Blistercoil Weird + Paradise Mantle decks- where you would cantrip all day then swing with him / Guttersnipe them down- but I think your engine is a little more fun. I wonder which solitare deck would win.
As an important side note, I almost exclusively play Blue/Red since I love those card the most and rarely look into the other colors so that greatly affected the cards I found and considered. With Green, going the Simic route with Evolve mechanics, +1/+1 counters, and Gilder Bairn would be pretty strong package for a Darksteel Reactor deck as well. And Black, as you found out, is great for getting a cheap Infect counter on someone.

Cards I would change for others that just seems better IMO.
Cards you can just cut out for others I have proposed
Pyromancer's Goggles but it's up to you honestly.. just have no good experience with this card personally
Panharmonicon (not sure why you play it tho..)
If you want to, you can drop the "dragon" part of the deck.. it's original, funny, but I think you don't need that to win.. So cards like Crucible of Fire , Dragon Tempest , Dragon's Hoard , can be replace.

Hey! I love the deck, thanks for you comment on my Mizzix deck. If you're looking for recommendations for upgrades, I'd consider adding the following cards:
Boseiju, Who Shelters All : This card is a bit pricey, but the added protection on your combo pieces is super nice.
Pyromancer's Goggles : This mana rock is a bit mana heavy, but let me show you a scenario where this card basically wins you the game. Use the mana to cast Bonus Round . Then, each spell you cast gets copied 3 times. This card is good.
Windfall : This card is a great way to refill your hand, and since you're running recursion the downside isn't massive.
Those are the big ones. Hope you have fun!

With your big spells being what you will probably be using to try and end the game then something like Pyromancer's Goggles and Ral, Storm Conduit could be good additions to the deck with Ral also adding some Scry to make your draw spells better.
Maybe Semblance Anvil could also be a good card for your deck to make the spell type of your choice also cost less which also has the added benefit if you exile an Artifact creature of making artifact and creature spells cost less.

Hey, cool deck! Some suggestions off the top of my head (most likely will come down to personal preference):
Inferno reckless and lots of damage
Rain of Embers cheap and effective
Aggravate interesting and different
Balefire Dragon 7cmc but can do work. Very one-sided
Pyromancer's Goggles for some added copying!
I realize you already have Furnace of Rath and Dictate of the Twin Gods but Gratuitous Violence seems like it would help you more instead of Quest for Pure Flame . Pure flame is cheaper cmc but I don’t see it being as effective.
Hope some of those help! +1
