Bloodrage Brawler Discussion

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.

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)
