I see that now, thanks for pointing it out. Sometimes us Legacy heads can get so far down the rabbit hole we forget other people can't see where we're going.
This is actually a relatively basic midrange deck, at least as far as Legacy is concerned. Leovold, Emissary of Trest and Ramunap Excavator don't actually have any synergy themselves, but they're relatively unique card selections for this build, which is where the name comes from.
So basically the point of this deck is you slam Chalice of the Void and then slam some creature or something that can attack. Usually you'll have the game locked up midway through and you don't actually have to attack for the win because your opponent is gracious enough to scoop. Some people call this strategy "hate bears", because you're playing grizzly bears like Gaddock Teeg that hate entire other decks out of the format.
This deck doesn't actually do anything, but that's kind of the point. Your opponent isn't going to be doing anything either, if things go according to plan. Eventually you can garner a win by attacking with the hate bears or ultimating Liliana, but they'll probably scoop before things get to that.

I have thought about the Pyromancer before, and it would work if I added just a few more sorceries and cut some lands. I think 26 is a bit low for the instant / sorcery count in a Pyromancer build, but the Pyromancer is helped a lot by a double cast from Lingering Souls. I really do like the interaction between Dark Confidant and Platinum Emperion. Flipping an 8 is of course a blow out, but I've only ever actually had it happen a few times, one time I was already winning the game so much anyways it didn't matter and another of those times I actually already had the 1st Emperion down so the 2nd Emperion flip didn't hurt me. Being able to sit back and draw extra cards a few turns while they spin their wheels not being able to attack and hoping to topdeck a Path to Exile can lead to such a huge card advantage that by the time they finally do path the Emperion I'm going to be slamming a Liliana of the Veil and another Bob or something.
