You are correct on this, too, but I personally use the MCT because it can (and often does) build an ISO file that is more recent as far as the patches that have been applied than the static ones you can download. It also doesn't really take any additional time of significance and is, for many, quite a bit more user friendly.
But no matter what, you can download the Windows 10 ISO under Windows (any Windows). Even Rufus now has a feature allowing the end user to download the ISO for any version of Windows 10, including ancient ones.
