Ramos, Dragon Engine Discussion

Morph cards are colorless 2/2s when cast morphed. Ramos, Dragon Engine will get no counters for casting a morph.

Flipping a morphed card is not casting it, so Ramos, Dragon Engine gets 0 counters for that action as well.

Hi guys!

Firstly, Merry Christmas.

I'm tweaking one of my Ramos, Dragon Engine decks and I'm eyeing a particular morph card ( Icefeather Aven ) which has a very nice 'turn face up' effect that's in tune with the deck I'm building.

So question is, if you cast a morph card face down for it's alternative cost, does Ramos see the card's true color identity and gain +1/+1 counters for the cast? Or does Ramos see the cast of the spell as colorless and gain nothing?

And just to make sure I understand the next part, turning a morph face up happens outside the stack. So that's not 'casting', meaning no counters for Ramos, right?

Kogarashi on Nightsky Mimic

To elaborate, the color of a spell is not the same thing as a card's color identity.

A spell's color is determined by the colored mana symbols (if any) in its casting cost, as well as any color-defining text in the rules text box such as Ghostfire or Abstruse Interference, and color indicators such as on Kobolds of Kher Keep and Pact of Negation (color indicators also show the color of permanents that don't have a casting cost that defines the color, such as the back side of double-faced cards).

A color identity, on the other hand, as Boza said, is specifically for Commander and is used only for deck construction and a select few cards that care about a commander's color identity such as Command Tower. It has no other MtG-related rules use at this time, and doesn't factor into cards that care about a spell's color.

Similarly to how Dutiful Thrull is a white card with a BW color identity, while Ramos, Dragon Engine has a 5-color identity, it won't trigger any colors-matter cards like Nightsky Mimic because it's actually colorless.

Renamed the title. What do I have to do to get some help, please? I am working constantly on mentioned Terms of Under Night IN-BIRTH, but that's all I can do. That said, I at least was able to find a place to represent Merkava; Fathom Feeder (Both Voids & Eldrazi are surprisingly similar in some ways, & Fathom Feeder fits the abilities as a Devoid creature.). The rest, I can't good pics for the job while researching. Also, I dunno If Najeela, the Blade-Blossom is working as a commander for you, so I ask for a replacement if needed, as this is not Warrior Tribal. That said, here Re some applicants for the Hollow God:

& that's all I got. If you can tell me what would be the better commander for this, let me know... The Hollow God (虚神/うつろがみ) would be pleased w/ your opinion as this is meant to be 5 colors...

Any five color deck is incomplete without a Door to Nothingness. And although you do have a lot of colorless and mono colored cards, I'd still recommend a Ramos, Dragon Engine. If you cast Conflux that's an instant 10 mana back, but you could also just let it build up over time.

skoobysnackz Jodah, Archmage Eternal is currently what I'm leaning towards (along with Cromat), I'm toying with the idea of an aristocrats style deck with Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. I think I'm ultimately going to make a 5-color deck, the reason I keep Ramos, Dragon Engine as an idea is because of his art and effect being awesome. I enjoy the idea of casting a few spells then using his ability in order to cast more/devestating spells (Progenitus comes to mind) or use Door to Nothingness to remove a problematic player from the game.

Hey, LoaTheWolf. From what I've read of the comments (only the first few) it seems like you are familiar with mtg already, and budget isn't too much of a concern. If you have already played other formats before, then starting out at 5 colors can be fine. Otherwise, I would also advise against it. If you really want to go 5-colors, I think Jodah, Archmage Eternal would be better than Ramos, Dragon Engine. Ramos can be tricky to build and pilot well, whereas I think Jodah will give you more room to learn and even evolve your deck as you decide what you like and don't like. Some fun Commanders I have played/played against are Muldrotha, the Gravetide, Yasova Dragonclaw, Samut, Voice of Dissent, and Nekusar, the Mindrazer. Muldrotha decks want to build up their graveyards full of cheap permanents that can easily be brought back and sacrificed for value, here's the version I'm currently playing: Tidal Graves. Yasova is pretty straightforward, make her bigger than all the other creatures and then steal the best one each turn, if you can then sacrifice it to Fauna Shaman or something, that's just a bonus. The Samut I play against is a voltron build that uses enchantments like Spectra Ward to deal 21 commander damage really quickly. Nekusar is also pretty straightforward, I'm sure you can find much better lists than mine, but the idea is use lots of Windfall type cards. Be careful with him though, he tends to make everyone at the table target you first. Hope this is helpful and good luck with whoever you chose.
