Wolffey05 I have considered doubling season and primal vigor, price holds me back lol! I think a parallel lives is in the near future and Dictate of Erebos as well.

Hey bro BigBoyBeau, my deck focuses on having somewhat early game presence but performs better mid-to-late game (unlike yours). One of the important things I value in the deck is removal because it helps me get rid of my opponents' cards whenever necessary based on how they affect the state of board presence. I like how one of the themes of your deck is draining your opponents' life, even as a consequence for sacrificing or losing your own creatures, but mine leans more toward dealing face damage with large/pumped up vampires and making others sacrificing their creatures with Dictate of Erebos Butcher of Malakir if they ever mess with mine. Your deck looks fun to play as others have mentioned already but if you ever want to stray away from it with more stability and control, you should follow up with the comments posted on your Hyper Markov deck. Hope this answers your question

+Urza's Incubator - cheeper minotaurs

+Fervor - haste for all

+Living Death - protection against board wipes

+Lightning Greaves - protection and haste

+Sign in Blood/card draw in general

+Phyrexian Arena - card draw!

+Rakdos Charm - just a good card

+Gratuitous Violence - dmg incorporated.

+Anthem of Rakdos - dmg incorporated.

+Furnace of Rath - dmg incorporated.

+Havoc Festival - dmg incorporated. Plus the most Rakdos card

+Mana Flare - speed things up a bit

+Greed - more card draw

+Pain Magnification - could be good for keeping 0 cards in their hands

+Shared Animosity - can be super strong


-Black Sun's Zenith -expensive

-Cut // Ribbons - expensive

-Torment of Hailfire - expensive

-Ifnir Deadlands - I just don't get why its here, a swamp seems better

Cards to look into removing:

-Aether Vial - seems almost slow? Just doesn't fit in with the deck, but by all means, test it and see where it goes! Having fun with the cards is the most important part anyway.

-Azor's Gateway  Flip - also doesn't quite fit, but maybe? I've never personally played with the card.

-Obelisk of Urd - another one to playtest, I've thought it wasn't good enough in my tribal decks to get a spot

-Trepanation Blade - Very random card. Very random. I don't know what to think. Probably very good, though.

-Consuming Vapors - Don't quite get it, but might be a good way to gain life. Seems dependent on your playgroup.

-Impale, may I introduce you to murder?

-In Garruk's Wake - very expensive

I don't think Breath of Fury and Nemesis Mask are going to be good in the deck. I would not add them.

Silence the Believers will be too slow.

Maybe board:

-Cruel Reality: Just a trap, you have much better cards and it is extremely expensive.

-Dictate of Erebos: Maybe? I think you have better options

-Black Sun's Zenith: Maybe not. Has a much better place with Cabal Coffers.

-Cut // Ribbons: Nope. See above.

+Flurry of Horns :)

-Firestorm: too expensive IRL

+All the minotaurs, they're minotaurs?

I don't think Breath of Fury and Nemesis Mask are going to be good in the deck. I would not add them.

Silence the Believers will be too slow.

Sorry about the formatting, it hates me sometimes.

Breath of Fury and Nemesis Mask can make a combat loop. Dictate of Erebos could force your opponents to sac good creatures.

I play something pretty similar in here, but I have Dictate of Erebos / Martyr's Bond in to clear other people's creatures by sac'ing my tokens. Also hilarious when people are forced to sac their mana rocks when I pop Expedition Map or something similar.

Cool deck! I like how you went a human tribal route. It sets the mood for sacrificing, and you still have room for some equipment to protect Greven and make him a bigger threat than he already his. Did you not want to put in Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact? Staples, I know... Seems like good add-ins though for a sacrifice-first deck. Also, how about Hatred?

I'll take feedback on my Greven deck if you're interested. Just built him a few weeks ago, and I put a bunch of silly cards in. I was going to go for straight up flavor but Greven is only on Hatred (as far as I can tell).

Also, now I just see it, where is Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact. Who also said this deck was a gimmick. Yes it is very annoying but I changed mine and usually win around turn ten with mine. (This deck somehow managed to beat the Teferi, Temporal Archmage
