Cloven Casting is a super hard build and I like what you have done with it. Are you going for spell copies to storm or just the free copy as a bonus?

If a card like Ramos, Dragon Engine says "cast" on it, then only spells you cast count. Cloven Casting doesn't tell you to cast the copy, so the copy won't count.

When Ramos, Dragon Engine talks about a spell's colors, it's specifically talking about any colors in its casting cost, plus any colors on its color indicator. Simic Signet has no colored mana in its casting cost, nor does it have a color indicator, so it is a colorless spell. Devoid spells also won't trigger Ramos, even if they have colored mana symbols in their cost. Crimson Kobolds will put one counter on Ramos even though it lacks colored symbols in its mana cost because it's still a red spell.

As for Supply // Demand, while it counts as all three colors anywhere else, it's only the colors of the side you cast when on the stack, so Ramos would only get two counters.

suppose I have Ramos, Dragon Engine on the battlefield and I play a Simic Signet what happens? Also does a spell like Golgari Charm copied with Cloven Casting put counters on Ramos, Dragon Engine twice?

@Attack_of_Mogis Hm, Cloven Casting is certainly interesting, but it's only 2 colors and a 7-mana investment for no immediate board presence. The fact that it doesn't double-trigger Ramos is probably the biggest turn-off for me. I'll have to think about it a bit.

Awesome. And I can't believe I forgot to mention Cloven Casting.

Looking good so far, glad you ended up posting it.

Cloven Casting is good and does a fantastic job, however, I worry about you becoming mana starved, try Swarm Intelligence instead for better results. Furthermore, if you're interested in keeping the curve low, try out Pyromancer Ascension.
