I've never actually seen a Ramses Overdark EDH deck which is disappointing since he's at least one of the cooler looking things to come out of Legends. His usefulness seems narrow at first, and it probably still is, but the idea of this deck is to either:
A) Enchant enemies using disheartening auras and blowing them up with Ramses
B) Enchant enemies with "Gimme" auras since I'm short on creatures
C) Enchant Ramses with the few beneficial auras and equipments I have
D) Blow shit up when things get rough

There aren't a lot of creatures in this deck for one reason: Ramses is all you need to have a good time. But hey, let's throw in a Metamorph and a few Eldrazis in while we're at it. BLAMO. A deck. /magic

Leave comments and suggestions below. :3

EDIT:
4/1
-1 Screams from Within
-1 Skeletal Grimace

+1 Crystal Chimes
+1 Sakashima the Impostor

4/23:
-1 Backfire
-1 Betrayal
-1 Sword of Vengeance

+1 Dragon Shadow
+1 Dragon Wings
+1 Skull of Orm

-1 Claustrophobia
-1 Dead Weight

+1 Rings of Brighthearth
+1 Thousand-Year Elixir

5/2 - AVACYN RESTORED UPDATE:
-1 Dragon Wings
-1 Feebleness
-1 Island
-1 Persuasion
-1 Swamp

+1 Cavern of Souls
+1 Dark Imposter
+1 Killing Wave
+1 Spirit Away
+1 Unhallowed Pact





Oh, and return the slaaaaaaaab...

Launch and friends want to be in this deck. See also: Freed from the Real. Nothing says "tech" like "1UU: Destroy target creature" that actually involves 3 cards ;)

Edit for completeness:

Despondency
Fallen Ideal
Fool's Demise
Glistening Oil
Launch
Sleeper's Guile
Slow Motion

I would have removed Dead Weight instead of Screams from Within... seeing as how the latter works better with the "combo".

Trying to find something that'd represent Courage, but not having any luck. :facepalm:

I'll give the Dragon auras a shot, though I've been wanting to put Skull of Orm in here for a while. It's underrated, methinks.

Gonna need to make room for that new false demise coming in AVR.

Why no Rings of Brighthearth to double Ramses?

On that note, I think Thousand-Year Elixir would be great in this list.

Those are all excellent, obvious suggetions. Once AVR comes out, I'll put the new card in. But for now:

-1 Claustrophobia
-1 Dead Weight

+1 Rings of Brighthearth
+1 Thousand-Year Elixir
