Bloodrage Brawler Discussion

What I will say is that Fists of the Demigod, isn't a good idea, it gives your opponent an easy 2-for-1 by killing the creature. I'd replace it for now with Curse of Stalked Prey, though that could change depending on your deck style. I guess this is really over to you now, what sort of deck is it you want to build? Hope this helps a little, I'll happily add more if you want to head in a particular direction...

Searing Blaze or Skullcrack are better options than Incinerate, it's regeneration clause isn't that relevant. Bedlam Reveler is great in a high spell count deck as are Monastery Swiftspear and Kiln Fiend... You also want a madness enabler, Lightning Axe or Bloodrage Brawler would work.
Now, a quick note on Guttersnipe, it's a trap, partly because he's a horrible topdeck and partly due to cards like Pyromancer Ascension and Shrine of Burning Rage, which perform a similar role but are harder to remove and cost less to cast. Eidolon of the Great Revel appears in modern burn because your opponent is forced to burn themselves to just play magic and most spells used in modern are under 3 CMC, since it's a turn 4 format. Simple test, if Guttersnipe and Flames of the Blood Hand or Pulse of the Forge (neither are great burn spells), which would you rather cast on turn 3? In almost all cases you would rather play the spell because Guttersnipe does nothing that turn.
Hope this helps, good luck and have fun brewing your deck.

You could try Experimental Frenzy as a one or two of. With Bloodrage Brawler, Neheb, the Worthy, and Inquisition of Kozilek or Collective Brutality you could get some great value while still keeping your hand small.

GoblinsBeatElves thanks for the advice, made some changes in the deck based on it and your deck, decided to put 2 copys of Fiery Temper to get some value of discard effects of Bloodrage Brawler, Neheb, the Worthy, Risk Factor.

Deathbellow Raider seems sort of lacking as a 2-drop. In my Minotaur list, I use Bloodrage Brawler instead. A 4/3 for 2 is pretty strong, and if you have Neheb, the Worthy out, discarding helps to work towards that ability. Also, I don’t know if you’re interested in using him or not, but Lord of Shatterskull Pass is a thing. I think cutting the one of Fanatic of Mogis could be benefitial, don’t have that many red symbols and another copy of a Lord of Ragemonger would be nice here. I like the idea of the deck. Nice job.
Also, if you want to take a look at my deck, here’s that: Budget Minotaur Aggro.

I love Gimmicky decks like the next guy, but you can't get tunnel vision here. There's obviously potential in this kind of deck, but you gotta touch this up a bit before you can consider it a legitimate competitive contender.
Unless you can provide any potential upside to Bloodrage Brawler's discard effect, drop it immediately. Card disadvantage on an otherwise vanilla creature in range of Lightning Strike, Cast Down, Seal Away ect. is not mainboard, or even sideboard material for that matter.
That being said, Gigantosaurus, especially with your current landbase (24 no non-forest mana producing lands), should absolutely be in this deck. It's on curve with Sarkhan's Unsealing even. Demanding Dragon is worth mentioning, but it doesn't blow up your opponent's entire field when it enters the battlefield, which is the whole reason to run Sarkhan's Unsealing (especially 4 copies!).
Traxos, Scourge of Kroog indeed brings the hype, but you just don't nearly have enough historic triggers to splash him in here. Amulet of Safekeeping, and a couple of legendary creatures/planeswalkers/sagas and maybe consider 2 in the sideboard. I personally don't see much room for him to thrive here, and Traxos reeeally only works well, or it doesn't.
So, aside from a touch of spot removal (even just a couple of copies of Banefire) and Gigantosaurus, I'd suggest considering Pelakka Wurm, Aggressive Mammoth in here, even a copy or two in the sideboard. All of those cards will win, or at least get you back into some games in a few key match-ups.
Thanks for heeding my advice, nerd.

Bloodrage Brawler is a trap!
It dies to most 1 mana removal in the format, leavibg you 1 mana and 1 card short compared to the opposing player. Its a disaster waiting to happen.
Being mono red or budget is no reason to include the worst (eh... second worst, afetr Avatar of Woe) option in the deck. You have acess to cards like Grim Lavamancer for 5$ - its the second best thing after the all around banned and restricted Deathrite Shaman. Red has plenty of great cards, but that minotaur at best should be nothing more than a passing sideboard idea for racing in non-interactive matchups.
If you want to use you rituals to cast early Demigod of Revenge i would advocate replacing 4x Simian Spirit Guide & 4x Desperate Ritual with 4x Vessel of Volatility as its mora consistent and will provide you with 4 cards to do something more useful.
