Pheardemons on Ramos, Storm Combo Engine

You need a way to continually blink Ramos, Dragon Engine. A particularly good combo is Isochron Scepter and Cloudshift with Paradox Engine. You should look at other cards to add counters such as Quest for the Gemblades. With Deadeye Navigator you should look into Peregrine Drake, Great Whale, and Palinchron for infinite mana to continually cast your stuff. Future Sight to manipulate the top card of your library. Sensei's Divining Top works wonders with it. Freed from the Real, Argothian Elder and any land that produces more than one mana such as Simic Growth Chamber.

I tagged Ramos, Dragon Engine wrong. Here is the correct tag.

Right on! If you don't have red, you can't run Nicol Bolas! Or Decree of Annihilation, which is absurd!

How did you end up choosing Progenitus? I've built a similar deck and I decided to go with Ramos, Dragon Engine because he can give you absurd bursts of mana to cast spells like Decree or Expropriate. I see a lot of similarities between your deck and my deck so you might be interested:

One criticism - Crawlspace doesn't actually protect your planeswalkers at all; it only keeps your opponents from attacking you with more than two creatures. You might want something like Silent Arbiter or Dueling Grounds instead.

General Recommendations - Serra's Sanctum Wild Research Copy Enchantment Sigil of the Empty Throne Maelstrom Archangel Maelstrom Nexus

Don't know how much enchantment removal is going to be present, but maybe sideboard Open the Vaults Karmic Justice Crystal Chimes

Any of the "cast enchantment, draw card" effects - Eidolon of Blossoms Argothian Enchantress Enchantress's Presence Mesa Enchantress Verduran Enchantress

Protection - Eight-and-a-Half-Tails Faith's Shield Heroic Intervention Privileged Position

Control - Journey to Nowhere Oblivion Ring Detention Sphere etc.

Mana fixing - Crystal Quarry Chromatic Lantern Prismatic Omen Cascading Cataracts Joiner Adept

I understand the enchantment flavor for Chromanticore and that it's decent by itself, but would rather see Ramos, Dragon Engine or something else that functions better (although Ramos can be aggro).

Tel-Jilad Stylus for tucking Nefarious Lich and Illusions of Grandeur and my personal love for it.

You totally have a theme going and I dig it, just tossing some thoughts out there.

KingMathoro on Grand Arbiter Control Help

So I have been working on a GAAIV list now for I can't tell you how long. For some reason I cannot settle on a list that seems "good enough" for me. I initially thought about going the Enchantress route but I have done that before and it didn't end well for me. Then I went for a mostly Counterspell style build. That didn't work either. Currently I am in the middle of the two with more Artifacts than Enchantments. But it doesn't feel right still and I struggle to keep the board under control and have only won once. My meta is reasonably competitive with the only rule of there being no Infinite Combos. i.e. Palinchron and Navigator and the like.

The Commanders in our group currently include: Daretti, Scrap Savant, The Scarab God, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Ramos, Dragon Engine, Chainer, Dementia Master, Phenax, God of Deception, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Animar, Soul of Elements, The Locust God, Breya, Etherium Shaper, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Karlov of the Ghost Council, and Edgar Markov.

This is my work in progress deck. Please help.

IcyFire81 while Natural Order is a great card, the fact that it puts a creature directly into play circumvents the interaction I am trying to capitalize on with Zacama, Primal Calamity. He won't untap lands unless he is cast and also enters the battlefield.

Progenitus while and exciting, doesn't really fit with the theme of the deck. I am looking to abuse Zacama, Primal Calamity and Blood Sun. I am running Ramos, Dragon Engine is just a convenient 5 color Commander. Any synergies with Ramos are just incidental.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Painful Truths is ok, but better add more consistent draw engine like Phyrexian Arena or Rhystic Study

And i think you need a few recursion spell. You dont want to pay a lot of mana to cast dragons and die to Doom Blade and stay on grave forever. call them back ! Living Death Unburial Rites Animate Dead or maybe Rise of the Dark Realms

Taneb n Intet is fine if you want to keep the flavor. Crosis, boneyard not so good, o-kagachi is hard to cast and not take immediate effect. But once again if you wan to keep the flavor then is up to you. And for Ramos, Dragon Engine , you need a lot of charms card to maximize him.

And add a lot of mana ramps. Chromatic Lantern is a must. Sylvan Caryatid Sakura-Tribe Elder Solemn Simulacrum Yavimaya Elder is needed. Yeah they aren't dragon but they will help you a lot.

Even with your subtheme you still might want to add Conflux since its just so broken with Ramos, Dragon Engine and, in most ramos decks should win you the game on the spot. Even if you don't want to combo off with it, you can grab the pieces for zacama and have the mana to use him.
