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.

Thanks for the thoughts!
In regards to Burn from Within: See, the inclusion in the sideboard isn't for dealing with Indestructible embalm/externalize creatures, but rather to deal with Gods. I appreciate the thoughts on it! But I think I'm going to leave it in for now.
Skaloper: For cantrips, I currently have Crash Through and Hieroglyphic Illumination (if you count that), but I like the idea. Expedite would be my next inclusion for a one-drop cantrip, over Built to Smash. No matter, what would you suggest I replace for it? For Insult / Injury, I've had it in and out of the Maybeboard a hundred times. I'm still deciding, but I don't know where I would put it, be it side/mainboard.

Also as a suggestion though I'm not sure its what your looking for I would consider playing the couple 1 mana cantrips in your colors if you want to play a more aggressive prowess deck. Insult / Injury is also a terrifying card and finisher, though it may not fit here, and perhaps take a look at some red pump spells like Built to Smash if you feel you need to push in damage.

Thinking about your most recent comments about this deck running out of steam around turn 5. What do you think about Zada, Hedron Grinder? Seeing the 4 CMC I know is a turn off for this deck, but think about the possibilities, Brute Strength, Built to Smash, and Otherworldly Outburst become devastating. Choose it for Renegade Tactics or Expedite for absolute silly card draw for 1! Could be worth some testing to see if it could save this deck from the late game lull.

Kjartan Thank you. Maybe it is a little bit too slow. I dont now, because I only played it against my friends. I think I have to play in a tournament to see if its fast enough. But sometimes it can be realy fast. For example, if I have Monastery Swiftspear, 2 Built to Smash and 2 lands in the first round, I can deal 10 damage until the second round because of prowess. Thats why I have 4 Monastery Swiftspear in my deck.

I would recommend putting in 2 more Invigorated Rampage for the 2 Built to SmashAdd 2 Attune with Aether and get rid of Woodweaver's Puzzleknot. Last -1 Larger Than Life and +1 Blossoming Defense. I would try to put in 4 Servant of the Conduit and maybe put Glorybringer in the sideboard. Hope the advice helps!
