I would suggest that you drop Inferno Jet. That's a really expensive spell. If you want the direct burn, Burn from Within is more versatile for your mana. A coupe more creatures might even be better. Maybe 2x of one of these: Dragonmaster Outcast, Bomat Courier, Village Messenger, Scrapheap Scrounger (which could be nice to get a creature back if you face aggro decks or sweepers), or maybe Falkenrath Gorger.

Also, why the Cataclysmic Gearhulk? I see no way to get that onto the battlefield with your current cards/mana base. Maybe you meant Combustible Gearhulk?

Supernatural Stamina is an okay card, and it has its uses. However, I think you need to make room for some additional cards, and, that would be the obvious target (after Inferno Jet) to cut. Abrade would probably be better. Brute Strength might be good as well.

Hungry Flames is okay, but seems a bit expensive. By the time you get to the 3 mana range, you really want to be looking for more for your investment. Hanweir Garrison might be better at the 3 mana spot than this removal.

Just some suggestions! Interesting deck. Good luck with it!

Ramunap Ruins and Ifnir Deadlands could be very useful lands for this deck-- dealing damage and possibly slowing down gods or similar.

Hey Atroxreaper, thanks for your feedback!

Soul-Scar Mage would be pretty nice with all these spells in the Deck at the present day, but as I will go on less spells and more creatures in future, so he wont be joining my minotaur ranks at these days ;)

I dont think more Consuming Fervor are needed as they are sure a good option to pump the creatures but dont come with Instant Speed as Brute Strength and will weaken my creatures 3 turns later as I dont have anything to move -1/-1 counters.

Bomat Courier is a solid and pretty strong card, especially in red containing decks but I am not 100% sure about it. I think I will give this a try in an test play in the next couple of weeks and then report it here.

I already tried Earthshaker Khenra and it didnt satisfy me enough as his eternalize costs (as all eternalize costs) are pretty high and I need a win or stronger creatures when I am at this point of the game. Maybe he will come back when removal keeps strong in Ixalan so I could deal with that better.

Built to Smash is a really nice card, thanks for this suggestion, I cant believe I missed it as its totally the kind of spells im looking for in this deck.

If you are worried about the mana cost of Brute Strength, Rush of Adrenaline is still in Standard.

I don't quite understand the built to smash, since you can't gain the trample effect without it being an artifact creature... My suggestion is running 2 Brute Strength and 3 invigorating rampage instead of only 2 invigorating rampage.

tovare, I completely understood what you meant. To be honest, I have been testing a build that has removed Brute Strength and I think it is working better (only removal and creatures and Always Watching ). I'm likely to try that build at FNM to see how it goes. It has faired well against mono-black zombies (about 70% wins), and it's done okay against mono-red Ramunap (but not great, only about 50% wins).

Thanks again for the suggestion!

I would probably replace the Lava Spikes and Rift Bolts and maybe the Magma Jets with something that pumps creatures instead of direct damage. Spells such as Brute Strength and Titan's Strength come to mind.

Apostle's Blessing and Vines of Vastwood are always good to pump and protect.

Brute Strength or Invigorated Rampage give a buff and trample.

Fling can also be devastating

And Hazoret's Undying Fury with the extra mana you get from Nehab wouldn't even affect you!
