Creature — Human Wizard
Whenever Snapcaster Mage enters the battlefield, target instant or sorcery card in your graveyard gains flashback until end of turn. The flashback cost is equal to its mana cost. (You may cast that card from your graveyard for its flashback cost. Then exile it.)

Snapcaster Mage Discussion

Down two Condemn add two Mana Leak. Down two Spell Queller and up two Snapcaster Mage. Feels like your going to run out of cards, so maybe Telling Time or Think Twice. Azorius Charm gives options. Peek is the new Git-Probe. Idk, maybe play around and see what you think. The issue with condemn is that you dont want to give them life, as it is hard for you to deal damage, and manaleak is just a great card. 2 mana counterspells for the win. Also, snapcaster provides options, which is the key in control. It lets you play 4 extra cryptics (If your running 4 of each) or another set of remands. It is just good in every situation, and 4 is a must of.

Go up to 4 Mana Leaks, card is great.
If you have the coin Cryptic Command is must.
I have to say that Modern is not good format for new player as you have to know what your opponent is doing to play right. But everyones gotta start somewhere.
Also control deck doesn't need this many creatures. I would creatures to 6. Like 4 Snapcaster Mages and few Spell Queller or maybe Torrential Gearhulks. Those other creatures are more like sideboard cards. Celestial Colonnade is very good finisher so not that many creatures is needed.

I dont think this deck will function anything like you intend
Oloro is banned in 1v1 commander, and your opponents will do the opposite of ignoring you with him in the command zone, in fact most oloro control games i've played you are almost always the archenemy, oloro is NOT a deck to ignore and if you want people to ignore you you should consider a commander that isnt banned and infamous, such as a group hug one like Zedruu the Greathearted
Between playing oloro and controlling everyones board, being ignored is the last thing on opponents mind, so you should ve playing as an archenemy rather than an invisible player, oloro is one of the farthest commanders from invisible lol :/
That said, this looks nearly identical to my oloro stax listExcept that your lack of creatures is disturbing, i understand its not a creature heavy deck but nevertheless things like Dark Confidant, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip Snapcaster Mage, Ethersworn Canonist, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Reflector Mage Containment Priest and Aven Mindcensor contribute to the game plan via control, card draw and recursion while providing you with chump blockers to protect against any creatures that survive board wipes

Ive heard ramos is best used as a storm commander, cast a ton of multicolor spells, then cast double the amount with double the mana
For storm, you're gonna need a LOT of instants, ramp, and "storm" spells
Storm/ multicolor spells
Also, charms are a great way to generate mana with ramos while having many modes for utility and building storm count
And many more..
Storm also needs a lot of tutors and recursion spells if you can afford them
But yea, from what I've heard and seen about ramos, you want to storm multicolor spells in order to cast more spells with the mana and using the insane ramp to win via stuff like Mind's Desire, Grapeshot, Brain Freeze and Tendrils of Agony after a huge storm count of multicolor spells

If you are interested in something a little more combo-centric though, you could try the following (which I plan on testing at some point):
Entomb a Fatestitcher, unearth and copy it. Play Mesmeric Orb and use the two Fatestitchers to continually untap each other to mill yourself out, including milling Laboratory Maniac, Dread Return, Narcomoeba, Snapcaster Mage, bloodline necromancer , and Gitaxian Probe Use the final Fatestitcher trigger to untap a land, then sac the two Fatestitchers and the Narcomoeba to Dread Return the Bloodline Necromancer and copy it. Bring back Labman and Snapcaster. Use Snapcaster to flashback the Probe for GG. It does require a few cards that are independently weak like the Narcomoeba and Emtomb, but the combo requires only 2 cards and 5 mana to perform.

N4kk1 I have LoTV in there as well, but this deck actually ends up having more hand disruption than other midrange GBx decks because the spells can be recycled with Snapcaster Mage and Jace, Telepath Unbound Flip.
As far as Ashiok goes, she can be really powerful against other midrange or creature based decks. Definitely a flex spot in the sideboard, but I'm just a big fan of that planeswalker :)

ModernStormPlayer996 I actually just added Craterhoof yesterday, but it's always worked when I've played Legacy elves so I see no reason why it shouldn't work in here. Eidolon is mainly good against Storm and Living End, but it also stops Snapcaster Mage
