Bloodrage Brawler Discussion

I think you should replace the Timber Gorge with Sheltered Thicket. They still enter tapped, but you can cycle them for card advantage. I also think you should try some creatures that have power 4 or greater, but have lower mana cost. You can remove some of the ramping cards like Gift of Paradise and Grow from the Ashes and add in more creatures that can aid in your board and removal. I like Rhonas the Indomitable, Prowling Serpopard, and Bloodrage Brawler. If you use Wayward Swordtooth, it can serve as ramp and a cheap creature spell! If you would like some more ideas, check out my deck that uses Sarkhan's Unsealing.

This looks pretty solid! Only thing I can maybe see switching out is Bloodrage Brawler. It is powerful and inexpensive but you don't seem to have lots of sources of card advantage other than the 2 Lifecrafter's Bestiary so I would be hesitant to lose a card to cast it. Also, I feel like early on you are focused on ramping so the low casting cost doesn't seem as advantageous? I could be completely off base though.

I would ditch Avatar of Discord, you lack the required support of madness cards to make it worth it (not to mention the astronomical mana costs, the combination of casting it + madnessing something can have). In lieu of those it also suffers from the same problem Bloodrage Brawler does. If it gets killed/exiled (or even bounced) you got a tremendous card disadavnatage - and its hard to cast if you topdeck it late game.
Chandra's Phoenix is not as bad, as avatar, but this is just not hte right deck for it. It would thrive in any burn/control deck that can reliably hit face and need cards as fodder for large red spells like Lightning Axe, Knollspine Invocation, Jaya Ballard, Task Mage... etc. This deck only play 6x cards that fulfill the phoenix's reanimation clause, and you would still have to cast it, as you don't have much use for it as a discard fodder (outside of looting it away)

Turn 2 ragemonger would be a much-much stronger play.
Just imagine, opponent plays his tapland you follow up by discarding Simian Spirit Guide to play Ragemonger for free Gnarled Scarhides, then next turn you play Kragma Warcaller / Rageblood Shaman / Neheb, the Worthy to swing for lethal on turn 3...
P.s.: Bloodrage Brawler dies to everything - which is not ok, since it cost you 2 cards!

DMFF thanks alot! yeah I have been playing this a lot on fridays and actually havent lost a match with it yet. The very closest I came to losing was to affinity, but he got flooded just in time for me to come back, so I lucked out. but it definitely surprises people, and they have no idea how to side against it.
It seems that I lose most of my game 1s though, which is never a good place to start. I can side in Blood Moon and damping sphere against most match ups, and it almost makes me think main board Blood Moon would be good.
ZorrosRage thanks for the suggestions, I have tried tinkering with the madness cards a bit, and they are just a little too unreliable. I know I am getting a nonbo interaction when I play Bloodrage Brawler without them, but usually I have an extra land to pitch that doesnt really hurt me too much. I like the idea of running Burning-Fist Minotaur though, but would have to swap out the Metallic Mimic for him.
Gnarled Scarhide performs a lot better for me than I initially expected. Bestow is a really crazy effect. It makes it so my Neheb, the Worthy can get over a potential defender really easily, and then protects from a board wipe by letting me keeps some board presence after everything dies. The other trick he is good for is to bestow on your opponent's good blocker, because it makes it so the bestowed creature can't block. I have stolen a few games like that and it feels dirty, but really good.
Overall I think the scarhide is a fine addition to the list, but I cant help but hope for some new rakdos minotaur one drop with hybrid mana from return to return to ravnica.

since you are using Bloodrage Brawler can possibly use Burning-Fist Minotaur, and Collective Brutality for Madness enablers. gives you access to a few potential side cards Fiery Temper, Alms of the Vein and Dark Withering. Just thought it was a fun idea
also do you like Gnarled Scarhide? I know he is your only 1 drop but not sure if he is worth it.

I'd suggest you want to balance your deck a little better, adding 4x Gnarled Scarhide and 4x Bloodrage Brawler would be a good start. You need to be able to set up a board presence turn one and turn two, especially with an aggro deck. You might also want to have a look at Neheb, the Worthy...
