You want WURBG, right, ILuvMtg?? Jegantha, the Wellspring is an immediate source of all five colors at once. This means that you can cast an extra 5c card with Jodah, Archmage Eternal without a sweat.

Golos, Aimless Visionary
Legendary Planeswalker - Golos
+2 Search your library for a land, put it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library
0 Shuffle ~ into your library, then draw 3 cards
-4 Exile the top 3 cards of your library. Until end of turn, you may cast spells and play lands exiled in this way. You may pay instead of paying the mana cost of spells cast in this way.
Ok, so the -4 feels a bit more like Jodah, Archmage Eternal than it does Golos (or at least a combination of the two), but I had a hard time finding a way to give it a 5-color identity with a colorless cost, without copping out with some kind of "Add " kind of thing.
And the zero ability is just something I thought would be a good addition, mostly tied to the name I chose. Golos has no lore, as far as I can find. Closest thing to it was a reddit thread, where it was suggested that Golos is Solemn Simulacrum with a name. Please tell me if I'm wrong and just not looking hard enough.
Also, I decided against the idea of giving it the "can be your Commander" treatment, because of how stupid it would be for Tron. You'd only ever need to use the +2 every turn, or the zero once your land base was complete. It would be disgusting. As is, it has a place, is totally useable in most 5-color decks, but not overpowered.

Hiya, I know this is an older deck, but in case anyone is reading, A good card for Progenitus is Jodah, Archmage Eternal, which halves the cost of Progenitus. Ornithopter of Paradise is quite a handy mana dork. Bloom Tender can also be useful for generating mana. The deck only has one Progenitus. I would add another and also some kind of tutor. Diabolic Tutor or Worldly Tutor would be good options.

I don't agree about Jodah, Archmage Eternal or Fist of Suns. I think both of those cards actually hurt your deck instead of help it. Your mana costs are not high enough for replacing them with WUBRG. Neither of those cards brings what Morophon, the Boundless does to the table. I would dump Fist of Suns for Fellwar Stone or something like Cryptolith Rite. Even Birds of Paradise or something similar is a way better card for this deck than either of those. I would dump Winged Boots for Lightning Greaves. Haste is better than flying and shroud is better than ward.
You have way too few slivers in your deck to "Swarm" anyone. Let alone a table full of opponents. Your deck also has a lot of cards that are targeted creature removal. I would dump a lot of that removal for adding quality slivers that provide removal or create removal for you. Take a hard look at your sorceries and instants and see if there is a sliver that does the same thing. Then replace that card with the appropriate sliver. You also need more card advantage to refill your hand once you start slamming slivers down. You can combo using your mana slivers, Intruder Alarm and cards like Vanquisher's Banner. With those cards in play, every time you cast a sliver you will draw a card and untap your slivers which can let you chain through your library in no time.
For more card advantage and more slivers I would suggest the looking to add some of the following depending on your budget; Herald's Horn, Icon of Ancestry, Cryptic Gateway, Descendants' Path, Guardian Project, Kindred Discovery, and The Great Henge. Since you don't have Sliver Queen you can make more slivers with Maskwood Nexus or Birthing Boughs. Realmwalker is another great card. Adding 4-6 of some of these will really speed your deck up.
Good slivers to replace sorceries, instants or land you take out:
Necrotic Sliver, Essence Sliver, Two-Headed Sliver, Fury Sliver, Belligerent Sliver, Galerider Sliver, Bonescythe Sliver, Venom Sliver, Syphon Sliver, Diffusion Sliver, Hibernation Sliver, Brood Sliver, Crypt Sliver, Blur Sliver, Opaline Sliver, Toxin Sliver, Tempered Sliver.
You don't have to use all of these but some of them are insanely good like Necrotic Sliver. You don't need any removal spells if you have a bunch of slivers and this one in play.

Seems to me like you need better card draw? Or more slivers compared to the number of other things in your deck. Your land count also seems a little high - I usually go with around 36. Jodah, Archmage Eternal is similar to Fist of the Suns

Not sure the title is on point, but my inquiry has something to do with my cascade deck.
So, I have built my cascade deck about two weeks ago and I have had the feeling that it's missing something (Here's the list I am referring to Cascade).
The point of the deck is to play Apex Devastator and Genesis Ultimatum which are my two favorite cards at the moment, what I feel is missing is bigger monstrosities and just bigger threat in general, stuff like Zacama, Primal Calamity to untap all my lands and allowing me to cast more stuff or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight to double the damages and reduce the crack back when I swing out.
My friend told me I should switch my strategy to a Jodah, Archmage Eternal with a big mana theme and keep my cascade strategy and add Maelstrom Nexus so that even if my first spell does not have cascade, I will be able to get it.
Here are my two questions.
Would changing into a Jodah deck and mixing a big mana theme to a cascade theme really work? I am afraid that a big mana theme would require of me to play higher cmc spell and hinder the cascade side of the deck which requires cmc spells with lower values to cast them.
Other than the two other creatures I mentioned earlier and an Avacyn, Angel of Hope is there other cards with white and/or black I should think about integrating to the deck? Maybe Timesifter to go with all the high cmc spell I would add to the deck?

Love the deck and love Ramos. You might want to consider Jodah, Archmage Eternal and Hydra's Growth because Jodah means Ramos can activate to play 2 things for free essentially so you can save mana on ultimatums and such, Hydra's growth ensures you have more than enough counters on Ramos to activate every turn.
