JoltsOfEnergy on minotuar rapage

I wouldnt just blindly put all the minotaur cards you can find in here. Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic can both buff your creatures. Door of Destinies, Coat of Arms and Obelisk of Urd can work for your tribal anthem effects. Patriarch's Bidding works to bring back all your minotaurs at the same time.Furthermore I'd use some good R/B commander staples. Terminate, Dreadbore, Blightning, Skull Rend maybe Wrecking Ball.Finally if you want more of a hellbent strategy for your commander's effect I'd suggest adding Malfegor and Anthem of Rakdos.

Hope these help.

Your deck is a little top heavy, Id suggest some changes along the lines of:

  1. Rakdos, Lord of Riots is likely to be more relevant than Ob Nixilis, Unshackled simply because it is cheaper to play.

  2. Hellspark Elemental is a better option than Gibbering Fiend unless you are going for devil/demon tribal, but then Torch Fiend has more utility.

  3. Indulgent Tormentor is cool but very easy to remove, instead I'd suggest 1 more Desecration Demon and 2 of either Master of Cruelties, Hellrider or Bedlam Reveler.

Mainboard it would be nice to find space for Sin Prodder and Dash Hopes.

Otherwise for your sideboard Dreadbore could be handy to deal with planeswalkers and Rain of Gore is a handy trick. Blightning and Rakdos Charm could also have a place.

Nice deck, I'm running a rather less budget mardu brew, so let me cover what I've found. Delirium Skeins for control matchups- emptying their hand so you're topdecking into burn is very strong. Blightning, as much as I love the card it has always underperformed when I test compared to vanilla Duress or similar. If you're stalling their hand, the three damage is such a minor upside that it rarely outweighs the extra discard by turn 3. Ratchet Bomb is wonedrful against tokens or as spot enchantment removal. Gifted Aetherborn can keep you in the game against bolt-light matchups.

If you want the option to draw out your games, a little more removal, some discard outlets, Phyrexian Arena and Shambling Remains/Jagged Poppet type shenanigans are possible, but playing fast with a solid removal and disruption package in black with damage to face in red is probs best. Good luck, and have fun!

If you're really into losing friends you could use Blightning and Terminate.

I'v put Rakdos's Return in as a finisher for the late game, but looking at it now I would need 6 mana or more to have more damage then with Blightning and when is that gonna happen, right ? So you're sugestion might be pretty good. Thx

Maybe Blightning over rakdos return?

Looks cruel! My only concern is you are not getting cards out fast enough. You have all the great high cost cruel cards, but you definatly need some ramp. Sol Ring is a staple in any EDH, and Rakdos Signet could also help you out a bunch. Things like Terminate and Dreadbore are fatastic, as is Blightning. My favorite rakdos deck is "At My Signal, Unleash Hell" (Turn 3-4-5 Wins), and I think you can get some great aggro card ideas from there. Good luck!
