Well, Greyjoy now have a Warship that equals Meraxes (TBC) in terms of helping to win dominance, except theres isn't unique, is cheaper and helps them win initiative.

I think Warship-Raider decks have even more fuel for the fire now!
I think this card brings a lot to the table - Dominance Str, initiative boost, and a "warship" trait for some synergy. Might turn out to be pretty cool/useful.
One gold for +2 initiative AND Naval Escort (ASitD) stacking? Don't mind if I do.

looks like Greyjoy is getting some Warship support which is good, because most of the Warships right now are 2 gold
and where in the blue hells am I gonna find room for this in an already tight deck?!

But, its a good card for sure.
The initiative boost of one or more of these ships works fine with
Longship Grief (CD) or Rorge (LoW) (!) and even with the new plots Men of Honor (AHM) or Men of Duty (AHM).

EDIT: Like Staton (below) mentioned, check out the folllowing due to the Warship trait.
Naval Escort (ASitD)
Ambitious Oarsman (RoR)
as well as
Victarion Greyjoy (VD) this guy gets +1 STR
Dagmer Cleftjaw (KotS) count + 2 STR during the dominance phase

really wish there were more cards that interacted with the Warship trait
This card goes great with Naval Escort and Ambitious Oarsman!
I'm not sure about Dagmer Cleftjaw (KotS) + Captured Cog (AHM) synergy though. Neither effect says it adds +2 or +4 to your total STR during dominance. They say that warship(s) count as 2 or 4 STR during dominance and I believe those effects doesn't add up, Captured Cog can count as either 2 or 4 STR.
Yeah, first player would decide in which order the Passives resolve.
Those aren't passives, they are constant effects. They only last the duration of the Dominance Phase, but they do last the entire phase.

I think it would get both effects

and where in the blue hells am I gonna find room for this in an already tight deck?!

But, its a good card for sure.

The same here. Almost every time, I end up leaving this one out. I start with 3 copies, and when i finish there is simply no room for these. Dagmer alone can win dominance with other (useful) warships.
This is great out of Bara.....In a Dominance deck I would prefer this over the iron throne (for the same price) since it makes easier to use bay of ice

Does the Captured Cog have to be standing to count as 4 STR during dominance?
I am pretty sure it doesn't
Indeed, it makes no difference whether or not it's standing - otherwise it'd say as much. It just says that it counts as 4 STR towards dominance, there's no condition to that.
