Ramos, Dragon Engine Discussion

Ever consider Ramos, Dragon Engine as one of the 99 to set up Najeela with a double activation?

I didn't actually think anyone would see this, thank you very much! I love the way you commented on the deck.
I completely agree on switching the commanders, however, I find Progenitus fun and would at least try to use him as a commander. Since I'll have both him and Jodah, Archmage Eternal when I finish gathering the cards for this deck, I'll be free to switch between them.
Also, you're right, I absolutely might want to think about running Ramos, Dragon Engine - in fact, I previously wanted to include that card, but I think I just forgot.
Thank you for your suggestions, they helped me a lot!

You may disagree with me and if you do that’s totally fine, but you way want to consider switching your commander from Progenitus to Jodah, Archmage Eternal. Jodah’s ability gives him the color identity to be a 5 color commander and with a deck like this with tons of high CMC cards it might be better to have Jodah at the helm than Progenitus. Up to you of course, it’s your deck, but it seems to me that having the automatic cost reduction in your commander would be immensely helpful.
Also, you might want to think about running Ramos, Dragon Engine, especially if you make Jodah your commander. He can produce tons of mana, especially since you have lots of multicolored cards, and if you have Jodah out you can activate Ramos’ ability to cast two cards guaranteed.

I really like the idea of Jeskai Ascendancy combos. Retraction Helix to bounce some cheap artifact also gives unlimited noncreature spells. Paradox Engine could be useful as redundancy. If you're not running Paradox Engine your mana rocks aren't as effective in this build compared to more dorks and land ramp. Aetherflux Reservoir and Laboratory Maniac could be other wincons.
Concordant Crossroads should help a lot with the haste, especially with token generators.
Metallurgic Summonings should generate lots of tokens while also providing recursion.
I feel like you need more card draw. Treasure Cruise should be good.
Nibilis can be cut since if you can combo off you don't need the tapping. The two Elspeths could be replaced as well.

Could I suggest Ramos, Dragon Engine as likely a better commander? Don't get me wrong, Chromat is awesome, but you want a lot of mana, and Ramos delivers.

Woiteck Thanks man! I considered both the Urn (I don't think the deck needs that much mana to operate) and the Clock (I can untap Traxos pretty easily and the other effects in the deck aren't really abusable), but I feel like at this range of CMC I prefer to have more impactful cards. Sure they can be useful, and I'm not saying I will never try them, but for now I really want to keep the deck mean and aggro so I want a lower CMC. A card that I might before those is Mishra's Self-Replicator but we'll see :)
He_Who_Hungers Yep, it's a big bad boy like Ramos, Dragon Engine created by the one and only Mishra. Though I doubt he can fly because we don't see no wings and the guy is exclusively made of metal (if you look closely at the artwork, you can even see actual houses/buildings on his body), it's still a dragon engine. He does look like Grond, though, you're right. Pretty cool!

So one of the wincons for the deck is Mazes end so needing to run all 10 guild gates is necessary. I use Ramos, Dragon Engine to ramp up to mana i dont have like color filtering. or to out of nowhere cast Door to Nothingness or Primal Surge. If you have Amulet of Vigor out and cast Door to Nothingness it triggers and untaps then u remove 5 counters from Ramos, Dragon Engine and have the cost payed for.

My preferred 5-colour commander is Ramos, Dragon Engine. It doesn't ever have to come out, but it can ramp you into more Heroic spells if it does.
