Whenever Coalhauler Swine is dealt damage, it deals that much damage to each player.

Coalhauler Swine Discussion

DrkNinja you play Neheb too? Awesome! thank you for the suggestions! I've already considered some and will consider the rest! I took a good look at my own Neheb list while compiling this one. Fire & Sun are probably Neheb's cousins or something haha!
crowned Thanks for the comment! Stuffy Doll, Spitemare, Boros Reckoner, Coalhauler Swine etc are good options, I'm just not sure if I like them or if they're worth running. I'll definitely try them out at some point. I can't do the full indestructible set up though, it takes too many slots away from the main theme and sub theme.
DrkNinja this is your third comment... you ever gonna upvote? xD

A very impressive first deck! However, I do have some suggestions. Coalhauler Swine might be a reasonable replacement for one of your burn spells. The deck is pretty heavy, and Generator Servant could help out, allowing you to cast Neheb on turn 3. Aggravated Assault can allow double the damage, and thus, double the mana. I would take the Blood Moon, as it isn't doing you much good. And it works out okay for mono-colored commanders, but for multi-colored EDH decks, usually, include Command Beacon, Command Tower, Opal Palace, and Path of Ancestry. I notice you're relatively new to the site. If you have any questions, just let me know! Nice deck, keep up the good work!

precociousapprentice Most of the combinations are 3+ combos in this deck although there is a lot of cross synergy. I have been delightfully surprised by how often this deck wins and who it wins against. It does not fare well against cEDH though...
I completely agree about the mana base. Although Traveler's Amulet and Wanderer's Twig rarely slow me down. I definitely find them superior to tap lands as I get solid land drops and color fixing. I have been gradually upgrading the mana bases if my decks and this one is next in queue. I rarely find that i don't have the mana to play my spells though. I believe the card draw from Marchesa mixed with fetching so many lands helps a little with that.
I think Tainted Strike is one of the cards you might actually like! It is not usually for your own creatures. It is for when an opponent is attacking another opponent turning a non lethal attack into a game changer. Although it does have some other applications. The Boros Reckoner as you meantioned and the similar friends, Mogg Maniac, Spitemare, Stuffy Doll but also Harsh Justice, Mirror Strike, Backlash (which I go back and forth having in the deck) but my absolute favorites are Arcbond, Coalhauler Swine, and Heartless Hidetsugu with a protection/redirection spell out. all of these get increased with the damage doubling effects out.
After reading what you wrote about Aikido, I have been thinking about what I could add to make it more political. Do you have any recommendations? This deck is much more about tricking my opponents into attacking me and dissuasion through them knowing I have tricks. With all of the Damage doubling and especially with Repercussion out the intensity of the game goes through the roof as all attacks if they go wrong can go wrong quickly and in a big way. I do love the adrenaline that this deck brings to the table and how quickly they games can go. In that way our decks are very different I think.
Thank you for the upvote!

Great list! This looks like a fun deck to use. Have you considered using Earthquake to finish of the game? One tap of Heartless Hidetsugu followed up with Earthquake should be enough to finish everyone off assuming you have more life than them. It works nicely with Coalhauler Swine too.
Some damage doublers like Furnace of Wrath would also be nice.

Coalhauler Swine hurts you too, plus it has higher converted mana cost than all of your other creatures. I would switch it out for more reckoners or spitfires.

UnleashedHavok thanks very much for recognizing the effort that goes into a deck description like this! The cards you listed are definitely a good core for the start of this deck. Stranglehold probably isn't actually necessary, it's just one of the best cards that Red has available and should probably be in every red deck. That being said, you could probably build this whole deck for little more than $60. Just don't have it foiled out and use something else in place of Wheel of Fortune like Reforge the Soul. It shouldn't be very expensive otherwise.
Eldrazi Monument is in here because you should generally be able to win in a single turn once you start casting big spells. The monument protects Neheb and your other creatures from all your symmetrical burn spells and most importantly, it allows Coalhauler Swine to take a fuckton of damage and pass it on to everyone without dying, which combos with Fortune Thief too. Malignus isn't in the deck and probably won't ever be as I wanted to play it and War Elemental with Fling but that turned out to be too slow to be super useful. Glacial Chasm is a fun choice but since I do actually want to attack most of the time it would risk being a bummer. Also, I hate playing lands that don't make mana because it fucks your tempo in a multiplayer game badly.
Sean4447 maybe in other people's builds. You're right about it being great with Repercussion but so are most of the spells already in this deck, and they can't be countered by Strip Mine like Star of Extinction.
goblinguiderevealpls I addressed stuffy doll in the description, I feel that Coalhauler Swine is better and more interesting. Rakdos neheb is definitely a good card for a solid minotaur build, it's a shame he's not Mardu though as there are some good boros minotaurs. Idk why I'd have to win the lottery to replace the mountains with SC mountains as they're not particularly expensive and I actually have several dozen spare ones already, but that interaction wouldn't be especially valuable in this deck and I like having the true singleton mountains with all different arts.
Thank you all for your comments and thoughts!
