How is mana value/CMC calculated for melded cards like Mishra, Lost to Phyrexia; Urza, Planeswalker; and Titania, Gaea Incarnate cards?

Both Google and Scryfall calculate the mana values as such, but there is no mana in the top right corner:

  • Mishra, Lost to Phyrexia CMC=7
  • Urza, Planeswalker CMC=8
  • Titania, Gaea Incarnate CMC=3

The mana value (formerly known as "converted mana cost") of a melded permanent is defined as part of Rule 713, Meld Cards:

713.4b While the two cards of a meld pair are on the battlefield as a melded permanent, ... its mana value is the sum of the mana values of its front faces.

Therefore the mana value of Mishra, Lost to Phyrexia is the sum of mana values of Mishra, Claimed by Gix (4) and Phyrexian Dragon Engine (3).
