Creature — Minotaur Warrior
You may exert Ahn-Crop Crasher as it attacks. When you do, target creature can't block this turn. (An exerted creature won't untap during your next untap step.)

Ahn-Crop Crasher Discussion

ArchonBlue.. I dont dislike what your trying to do at all. Its got potential for sure. I think you will run into Mana Problems,if your adding Blue, and sometimes never see couple those cards since its a bit "Diluted" by lots of spells. thats all i can offer as opinion really.. Ever considered to run some of Reds best "Controllers" like Dire Fleet Daredevil or Ahn-Crop Crasher? they can be effective unless you are after the Exile and remove their weapons type control. LoL Im still trying to find a balanced but focused use for this weird card..Eternal Dominion, But seriously, Keep at it, Its your deck and your time and money I say. H/F

A playset of Ahn-Crop Crashers is great in any aggro deck. I also recommend replacing Karn with Chandra, Torch of Defiance to fit the aggro theme. You could try running a few D'Avenant Trapper to get rid of blockers temporarily, it fits your theme well and its power 3 allows you to crew your Heart of Kiran with it.
Good luck with the deck, I like it a lot

Hey, good deck so far. If you need ore ideas, I would look into Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation. They, along with the Theros block, have lots of Minotaurs. Some good examples of Minotaurs might be Bloodrage Brawler, Ahn-Crop Crasher, or Neheb, the Eternal. These guys might not boost up your Minotaurs like some of the ones you have now do, but they are excellent on their own. Experiment, see what works. Good luck!

Thank you for your time, 40fy! I'll address your comment one by one.
Moment of Craving does, at its surface, seem like a worse version of Cast Down. However, what it offers is a clean answer to Adanto Vanguard or Ahn-Crop Crasher, without making me rely on a Seal Away (I would much rather hit a Hazoret or similar with that). Also, it gives me life, which is vitally important against aggro decks or other beatdown decks. That being said, I do usually side them out if it doesn't do anything for me.
Vona's Hunger kills Carnage Tyrant. It is one of the only ways to reliably do that too, not counting deathtouch creatures. Not only that, as you said, it gets around hexproof and indestructible. In addition, it flashes back with my Gearhulks, which is always nice, and casting it with Ascend active is valuable against heavy board states. That's why it's good enough to be in the mainboard, although I do take it out against control mirrors. And with a single creature on the board, it is truly unconditional removal, no matter what protections are on it.
As mentioned in the Primer, the mainboard of this deck is focused against creature decks, although I have been able to steal game ones from control decks before as well. Post-board, I switch out everything for a nasty control mirror. My goal with building a control deck is to have answers for everything in the format, and after Dominaria came out I decided that the best answers were in these colors (the previous build was Grixis). The main parts of the deck are answers, draw, and threats. If you would like further advice about the current Standard control, just drop me a line here or on your deck, I'd be happy to help out!

Rampaging Ferocidon; Ahn-Crop Crasher ; Pia Nalaar would be better top curve. Chandra Phenix is a little to cute and doesn't add that much utility or deep to the deck.I would also add more one drop, Bomat Courier (It's a bit expensive, but his price should drop when he rotate out of standard) Falkenrath Gorger; Village Messenger Flip and Stromkirk Noble would had a vampire theme wich would reward you if you manage to clear the board for an attack.And Falkenrath Exterminator would be a nice two drop who add some reach

My next suggestion is to switch Neheb, the Worthy out for something along the lines of Rakdos Pit Dragon or another efficient Hellbent creature. Since Ahn-Crop Crasher was the only other Minotaur, I don't see much point in keeping Neheb. If you have those guys lying around, throw them into a or Minotaur tribal deck--they're a lot of fun.

Thanks for the tips, legendofa! Im sorry, I guess I misread Guerilla Tactics. The Ahn-Crop Crasher is in there to work with Neheb, the Worthys ability, boosting the Minotaurs. It didnt seem like it would be that effective if there were only two different Minotaurs in the deck. Also, he helps to give some quick damage on turn three. However, I also think he doesnt work as well in the deck, so if I find something useful, hell be the one I take out. Im trying to find replacements for him now. Im not sure what Im going to o with this deck yet, it was more of an idea. That said, I will have to tweak it and test it, and see how well it actually works.

Interesting build. Kind of has a budget Hollow One feel to it. A couple of points here--Guerilla Tactics only gets you the free damage if an opponent makes you discard it. If you discard it, as part of a cost or whatever, it does slightly less than diddly squat. The closest equivalent is probably Fiery Temper. Point 2--what does Ahn-Crop Crasher do to contribute? It doesn't really interact with any other cards, and in a combo-ish deck like this, it needs to more than pull its weight. I'd switch it for another nonlegendary discard outlet.
Before I start throwing more questions at you, how much money are you willing to put into the deck? Look for more ideas from Madness or Hollow One decks, and keep brewing!
