Ramos, Dragon Engine Discussion

Have you considered Vorel of the Hull Clade combined with my other suggestions? Ramos, Dragon Engine ; Doubling Cube; Master Transmuter, Composite Golem, Phyrexian Reclamation, and the Talismans (Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress, Talisman of Unity, Talisman of Impulse, Talisman of Indulgence. With Vorel you could also include Gyre Sage. Using Vorel to double the counters on Ramos and Gyre Sage. You could also storage lands like Calciform Pools, Dreadship Reef, Molten Slagheap, Fungal Reaches, Saltcrusted Steppe, Mage-Ring Network, and/or Mirrodin's Core along with a card that transforms lands into a creature, doesn't matter if it's permanent or just temporary, to have Vorel double the number of counters on them while they are creatures. I do this in my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and it works magic for me. If you're worried about any of these engine cards being limited just add tutors.
Side Note: I totally use Wasteland, Strip Mine, Crucible of Worlds, Ramunap Excavator , Exploration, and Burgeoning in my Glissa, the Traitor EDH deck and those cards are savage together. highly recommend trying them out together in a deck.

So Jodah, Archmage Eternal and Fist of Suns have the exact same rules text as far as casting spells with the 5 colors. Does this mean that they have the same effect on Ramos, Dragon Engine? There seems to be a disagreement in our playgroup over this and given they are worded the exact same i don't see why they both would not work the same for Ramos' +1/+1 ability. I know that the counters are dependent on the spells CMC but they should work the same.

Thanks for the suggestion electromancer. Typically, Transguild Courier would be a great trigger for a Ramos, Dragon Engine deck. In this deck though, I usually bring in Ramos, Dragon Engine at the very end of a game as another engine if I need it, if at all. For the rest of the game, I find that Transguild Courier just doesn't synergize well with anything else.

So I just want you to know vasarto77 I'm not trying to trash the deck but there's no coherent strategy. If you are going to use O-Kagachi that's fine but you have to build around that or build around a strategy. "Good Stuff" decks only work in decks like Jodah's Fire Sale! where we cheat stuff like Omniscience, Eldrazi titans, and Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh.
You are stuck in between a tron deck and random cards. Here are some cards that I feel should go in ANY 5 color deck immediately
- Rhystic Study
- Cyclonic Rift
- Caged Sun
- Leyline of Anticipation
- Merciless Eviction
- Bloom Tender
If you are going to go the "good stuff" route I'd honestly just suggest switching commanders to Jodah, Archmage Eternal but if you are sticking with O-Kagachi here are some actual good stuff suggestions:
- Najeela, the Blade-Blossom
- Legacy Weapon
- Jodah, Archmage Eternal
- Zendikar Resurgent
- Storm Herd
- Etali, Primal Storm
- Gisela, Blade of Goldnight
- Kozilek, Butcher of Truth
- Ramos, Dragon Engine
- Ulamog, ceaseless hunger
- Zacama, Primal Calamity
And if you want to go the tron route...
Also Summary Dismissal is really good if you are having problems with people comboing out.

I have played super friends a few different ways it is pretty fun but actually winning can be hard. Planeswalkers are awesome and some of them do win games but I felt like with each deck there needed to be another way to win. My most successful version was with Ramos, Dragon Engine. He can get pumped up enough to be able to one shot someone and is able to accelerate you into some huge plays.
Some things I think you need to include besides doubling season are The Chain Veil, Deepglow Skate, Thrummingbird, Viral Drake, Contagion Engine, and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice. Atraxa is good in the 99 or command zone, I like Ramos more for the commander since you get , acceleration, and a win con in one card.
For the walkers themselves I would use about 25-35 of them and just choose the ones you like the most.

Ha, it took me far too long to realize Ramos, Dragon Engine wasn't your commander. Jodah all the way!
