Both Abzan Charm and Jund Charm can auto activate Ramos.

Some suggestions on what to remove, stat!

Creatures (6) :

Bloodbond Vampire (too slow)

Copper Myr (any elf, Llanowar Elves for example, can do the same job, for cheaper)

Cryptbreaker (barely useful in here)

Defiant Bloodlord (way too costly for the sanguine bond effect)

Gold Myr (try Avacyn's Pilgrim instead)

Leaden Myr (see the other Myrs...)


Instants (2) :

Doom Blade (black is a common color played in commander)

Safe Passage (most of the time, it'll sit in your hand)


Artifacts (0) :

Nothing to remove here. Joy!


Sorceries (1) :

Diabolic Tutor (too slow for a tutor, most of the time)


Enchantments (5) :

Angelic Accord (Seems good, but it takes up something better in your curve)

Cradle of Vitality (If only you didn't have to pay mana for the effect...)

Arrest, Pacifism, One Thousand Lashes (Take removals to replace those pseudo-removals)


Planeswalkers (0) :

Unless they are so bad (I'm looking at you, Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded, never remove planeswalkers!


Total removed for the first cut : 14 cards.


Now! Options to consider in a lifegain build :

Exquisite Blood, Celestial Convergence, Test of Endurance, Beacon of Immortality, Tainted Remedy, Celestial Mantle, Erebos, God of the Dead, Aetherflux Reservoir, Well of Lost Dreams, Pristine Talisman...

Some removals :

Utter End, Swords to Plowshares, Anguished Unmaking, Putrefy, Mortify, Beast Within, Abzan Charm...

Hope this helps!

I would replace Darigaaz's Charm with Jund Charm since the mods of exile a graveyard and 2 damage to everything are simply better. I am thinking Star of Extinction should become Abzan Charm since removal and card draw are also good.

Jund Charm, and Abzan Charm can both activate Ramos instantly. Additionally one can exile a graveyard, and the other draws cards.

You may want to consider Door to Nothingness, Legacy Weapon, and Fist of Suns.

usaDiabetic on ramos good stuff

Taking a quick look, I have a few suggestions.

Abzan Charm can get Ramos 5 counters in one shot.

Deadeye Navigator can blink Ramos, so you can use his ability more than once a turn.

Bioshift can move counters over to Ramos and counts as 2 colors of mana.(really a lot of hybrid mana cost cards are good for Ramos)

Legacy Weapon can end up being free removal.

Corpsejack Menace for counter boosting. You can do the same with Winding Constrictor.

Maybe Progenitus.

Also, Villainous Wealth , just for fun.

Really cool list! Building a very similar list myself, but with Maze's End as an alt-wincon since I don't have any shocklands to spare. Here are my suggestions given my limited playtesting:

Bloom Tender, while a little expensive, is absolutely incredible in 5-color EDH. Taps for 3-5 colors of mana at a time in my experience.

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter technically doesn't give your first spell each turn cascade, but is close enough to make it worth it. At worst, you draw an extra card each turn if you're playing stuff at instant-speed.

How often are you able to cascade? Only five cards in your deck actually have or grant the ability. I'd add a few more spells just to let it happen more often. The ones that work best for me that I'd recommend are Bloodbraid Elf, Bituminous Blast, and Deny Reality.

I'd also stock up on more charms, especially the tricolored ones. With cascade, you never know what you're going to hit, so having lots of flexibility is really helpful. The consistently useful ones I'd say are Abzan Charm, Esper Charm, Naya Charm, and Sultai Charm.

If you've got any recommendations for me, my decklist is here: Taste the Rainbow, M'Fer - Ramos Cascade EDH

usaDiabetic on Ram Ranch Really Rocks

2 months ago

Abzan Charm can put 5 counters on Ramos at instant speed.

Legacy Weapon for removal.(I know I just suggested an artifact, but you might want to bring your colorless spell count down)

Deadeye Navigator so you can use Ramos multiple times a turn.

Maybe Bioshift to move counters on to Ramos, really any and all hybrid mana cards are good, as they count as 2 colors.
