Citanul Flute Discussion

One minor issue, Uncage the Menagerie doesn't get Walking Ballista. From a quick rules search, you can pay 0, but you won't be able to find any cards. I'd suggest either Brutalizer Exarch or Citanul Flute as replacements. Other that that, the deck seems great!

I love the deck, +1, hope you don't mind me borrowing a few ideas for my own X deck Chef Kruphix and his Mana Stew!-MAYBEBOARD HELP.
Have you considered NIssa, Steward of Elements as an X planeswalker, she has scry, land ramp, and free creature plays.
Although it doesn't work with the deck really, adding Phenax, God of Deception in as a win-con by milling people out with your huge hydras would be 1) completely unexpected, and 2) hilarious.
Again, love the deck +1 all day.

Citanul Flute is a fun one for X creatures like Hydras.

Spell_Slam there's no such thing as too many Nehebs. Yeah I would like to add Neheb, the Eternal and Tahngarth, Talruum Hero to the deck when I can pick them up (they are not the cheapest foils out there). But that begs the question should I be running Aggravated Assault for the infinite combat potential with Neheb, the Eternal?
As far as cuts, I think I would want to cut Kragma Butcher and Pitiless Vizier as I feel like they are the weakest link in the deck. I would say some of the other discard Minotaur but I have a sort of self discard matters sub theme. I'm just hoping we get more cards like Faith of the Devoted and Glint-Horn Buccaneer down the road as well as better Minotaurs.
I saw Karplusan Minotaur when building the deck. He's really not for me. He feels too chaotic and I'm not a fan of letting opponents make decisions as most of the time I have found they are never in my favor. But that might be the cEDH player in me talking.
Citanul Flute in an interesting thought. I used to run it in cEDH Arcum Dagsson before the Paradox Engine banning, R.I.P. I'm not sure it works well here as there isn't a way to cheat it in and only tutors the Minotaurs to hand. Honestly I would rather run Diabolic Tutor if I felt I needed another tutor for the deck.
Thanks for taking a look at the deck and for the suggestions. I'm glad you like the concept, build, and the alters. The alters certainly took some time to do. But I think they were well worth the effort.

If you're playing this in multiplayer, Karplusan Minotaur is a great political choice. No matter what the result of the coin is, you will be pretty likely to hit whatever you want to kill.
Citanul Flute could be a good way to tutor up some key minotaurs and is a great late game engine.
In terms of cuts, your discard-themed minotaurs seem like the first things to cut, other than maybe the javelineer. Something like Pitiless Vizier just doesn't seem to be good enough, even by minotaur standards.
Sweet deck! Nice alters! Good concept and building.

Reading through the comments here, and I've gotta say that Ragnarok guy sounds like he needs to step off his high horse. You've got a great list here, and the only major recommendation I can make is Idol of Oblivion . Since you'll be making tokens fairly consistently anyway, it's technically cheaper card draw than Endless Atlas . Plus, if you see an opening to directly attack someone, the 10/10 it becomes is pretty nifty.
If you care to have a look at my Norin build (The War Room: A Proper Norin Primer), you might see some other cards you like. I based the entire deck around exploiting ETB triggers, so there's a lot of token support. If you're okay with upping your mana curve slightly, there ARE two artifacts that allow you to tutor up what you need. But they're both 5 CMC to cast. Ring of Three Wishes and Citanul Flute .
Once again, I really dig what you've got going on here. +1 for sure!
