Ghost of Ramirez DePietro Discussion

Neotrup on Can I trigger 3 times …

One time. Ghost of Ramirez DePietro triggers off combat damage, and Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar's ability causes him to deal noncombat damage, otherwise it would trigger itself forming a loop.

Hi! If I deal combat damage to an opponent with Ghost of Ramirez DePietro in a 4-players game and I have Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar on the battlefield, how many times will trigger? One or three?


MindBoogaloo on HELP me find new synergies …

I've recently drafted Ghost of Ramirez DePietro and Armix, Filigree Thrasher. Realized that they could work well together. In order to use Armix removal ability you need to discard and DePietro is able to retrieve those cards.

Here are some things I observed when I playtested the duo:

  • most of the time one of them will be on the bf
  • Armix scares your opponents and they try to remove it ASAP
  • Armix can remove almost any creature. Having enough artifacts in/on gy/bf is not an issue.
  • Ramirez is more likely to kill with commander damage
  • Ramirez's evasion ability makes him almost unblockable. Especially during late game
  • Ramirez synergizes well with Cycling and Transmute. You'll be able to gain incremental value throughout the game
  • Two Ramirez dmg triggers if you give him double strike

I'll probably add Emry, Lurker of the Loch and Tormod, the Desecrator

Here's my list (includes only cards that i own irl)

Atm, I'm trying to win the game with commander damage, but I might change the strategy if there's a better one.

I think there must be more hidden synergies that I haven't discovered yet. (Madness works well with Armix but is a nonbo with Ramirez cause you can't retrieve the card with madness)

Please help my discover new synergies and strategies for this deck. Pls keep in mind that I'm trying to keep this deck as low budget as possible.

I_Want_To_PlayAllTheDecks on Different decks with one shell

4 months ago

So i would like to preface this saying I always build different decks and never like one long enough to build it irl, so this might help. If I built a dimir graveyard shell, would it work to then be able to switch the deck between Varina, Lich Queen zombies, Ghost of Ramirez DePietro transmute combo and scarab god reanimator. Is it possible for this to work if I only switch say 10 cards between each build?

Hi Abby, I was wondering if you could help me with my deck, Tutor deck with some control-ey suggestions because i've never really played control in commander before. The main card advantage engine is Ghost of Ramirez DePietro + any transmute card. Thanks for any help you can give me.

So I built another deck today focused around Ghost of Ramirez DePietro. It is a soultai control deck where you use transumte cards over and over again with Ramirez to find whatever you need for the situation and then get a Blade of Selves or a Rite of Replication to win the game with reyhan. here is the deck and any help or suggestion would be appreciated.

MagicMarc on New Combo Of sorts

I like that Entomb on a stick with the Reito Lantern backup that Azdranax posted. In case something messes up the combat damage step for Ghost of Ramirez DePietro then the lantern can let you get another shot at the card you entombed.
