Anaba Ancestor seems really bad- it doesnt get any real benefit from your commander because you have to not attack with it to maintain its ability, or its just a 2 mana 1/1. Plus, on board +1/+1 just is not a very powerful effect, even if repeatable.

Similarly, Flurry of Horns seems underwhelming. You have to get up to 5 mana, and then you get two vanilla 2/3s. This is the top end of your curve, and still does very little for you. Anything that is five or more mana should be really powerful. Thus, the cards that I feel are too expensive for their effect are: Flurry of Horns, Master of Cruelties, Warchanter of Mogis, Behold the Beyond (what three cards would you tutor for after spending 7 mana? There really isnt any way to use this to help you win- it can be a lot of value, sure, but youre probably off with either straight up draw or cheaper tutors to get your draw), Minotaur Aggressor, and then replace Plague Wind with In Garruk's Wake, at least. It is almost strictly better.

This deck seems like it could make use of a Whip of Erebos, if only for the life gain. You have a lot of pain effects, and Whip of Erebos is a very powerful artifact with both utility and circumstantial advantage.

A lot of your card draw comes from one time sorceries or Costly Plunder. It feels like this deck could use some more repeatable card draw, like Greed or Erebos, God of the Dead, or even some of the red psuedo draw like Outpost Siege and Chandra, Torch of Defiance. You may also want Phyrexian Arena, but you dont get to choose whether to draw that card. Other good cards for card advantage: Commune with Lava, Oracle's Vault, Stromkirk Occultist, Chandra, Flamecaller (wheel), vance's blasting cannons , Arguel's Blood Fast, Conqueror's Galleon, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Tamiyo's Journal, and The Scorpion God.

Ok I g2g, but looks good! looking forward to playing this!

hello DeepFriedwater, thank you so much for the suggestions cards, I'll look for some of then, like Door of Destinies, Aggravated Assault, Comet Storm, Fireball and Crater's Claws will definetely enter in this deck.

Mogis, God of Slaughter is in this deck since the very beginning, I think you miss it. I can't find Anaba Ancestor and Anaba Spirit Crafter, for being old cards, I also can't find Didgeridoo, which would be a very good card for this deck.

Any way, thank you, any update for this deck I'll post as soon as I can.

no Anaba Ancestor,Anaba Spirit Crafter,Rageblood Shaman, Mogis, God of Slaughter Lord of Shatterskull Pass? I feel maybe these cards in for some of the ones that don't benefit a lot to the minotaur theme you have going on as they just seem like Auto includes to me. I also think Tahngarth, Talruum Hero and Coat of Arms Door of Destinies and Obelisk of Urd and maybe Akroma's Memorial would all work nicely too provided they pump your minotaurs. Black Market would be nice after you get your (at this point massive) army of Minotaurs death touch to just put counters on it to have a large amount of mana to use to accelerate. you may also want to put Waste Not in here as a side win condition. Neheb, the Eternal can go infinite with Aggravated Assault by adding enough mana to activate its ability, plus the damage stacks each time you activate a new combat, to generate even more red mana to go large with a Comet Storm, Fireball or Crater's Claws.

I like this deck and I will post more as I come up with more ideas for this deck.
