Have you considered Emberhorn Minotaur over Ondu Champion? This would free some slots by totally cutting away Ally synergy and let you try something new with more discard/cycle effects and synergies and maybe some Madness.

Hey there,I would suggest you remove Emberhorn Minotaur, Illusory Wrappings and Pitiless Vizier for stuff like Ahn-Crop Crasher, Fatal Push, Tormenting Voice and Merciless Javelineer

And probably would replace Renegade Tactics with Cartouche of Zeal

Tezzeret's Touch has 0 targets main/side, So i'd remove those entirely.

Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh also seems really out of place here....

Argy! Your deck looks really consistent! I really like the way it goes for the face with aggro plays.

I definetely could use Bygone Bishop and Emberhorn Minotaur.

I have 3 Tah-Crop Elite but i'm using only 1 because i felt it was too expensive (mana-wise). What would you consider taking out for it?

I was wondering why did you take out Honored Crop-Captain, Devoted Crop-Mate and Combat Celebrant. They do seem a bit situational but they seem strong to my newb eyes.

I really like your sorcery and enchantment picks. I don't have Cast Out or Declaration in Stone but im gonna try and get a few copies to experiment.

What do you think about what i posted earlier and the changes i might do?

I can definitely see where you are going with this deck. My first Deck ever was almost exactly like this one. If you are looking to exert creatures such as Bitterblade Warrior,Emberhorn Minotaur, and Watchful Naga, I would definitely suggest using a Battlefield Scavenger to get some card draw out of those exerts. Using other exert cards like Ahn-Crop Crasher, will help get big blockers out of the way. For my Amonkhet Prerelease, I went red-green exert and found Synchronized Strike to be one of the key cards in the deck because of its untap ability. I really like this deck and can see a lot of potential in it

Thank you for giving me some feedback! I agree with most of what you said. I definitely feel Emberhorn Minotaur and Throne of the God-Pharaoh are two of the worst cards in the deck. I just took those completely out and added in Ondu Champion for that bonus trample, as well as re-adding Cut / Ribbons, which I've been tinkering on-and-off with. I like the late-game threat the Ribbons portion of the card provides as my Minotaurs start to run out of steam.

However, I like Supernatural Stamina in this deck. Minotaurs are a fairly aggressive archetype, and this card not only provides bonus damage, but can save a life, which I do think is worthwhile. I did swap just now from 4 to 3 copies though.

The problem with Hazoret the Fervent in this deck is that you usually don't have enough cards to use her ability consistently. I have 2 copies though bc I like her a lot. I'll add her to my Maybeboard for now.

Please let me know what you think with the changes I've made!

As an expert on this type of deck I would suggest adding Warfire Javelineer, Bloodrage Brawler, Ahn-Crop Crasher, Emberhorn Minotaur, Minotaur Sureshot, Cursed Minotaur, Pitiless Vizier, and Merciless Javelineer. I would also take out the filler like Coat of Arms, Door of Destinies, Anthem of Rakdos, Gratuitous Violence, Necropotence, No Mercy, Phyrexian Arena, and Rain of Gore

I have more Sin Prodders and Wolves of Devil's Breach if you want to trade for them. Also, I'd add more stuff that gives you benefits when they die. Stuff like Festering Mummy. I'd cut Falkenrath Gorger, Cursed Minotaur, Emberhorn Minotaur, Manticore of the Gauntlet, Nef-Crop Entangler, Scarab Feast, Nest of Scarabs, Fortuitous Find, edifice of authority, and Oracle's Vault to start doubling up on your other cards and putting in some cards that synergies more w/ sacing and discarding. Cards like Dread Wanderer, Bone Picker, bloodrage brawler, Flameblade Adept, wander in death, Miasmic Mummy, Fling. Those are only from Amonkhet. You've got all the madness cards from SOI block and I'm sure there's more from other sets in standard. Happy brewing!

I went 3-1 today, losing to a deck that I helped a guy to build! lol

I played with quite a bit of removal.

I had lots of early game Creatures and Harsh Mentor, Ahn-Crop Crasher, and Pathmaker Initiate, moving up into Emberhorn Minotaur and Grim Strider.

That meant I had quite a bit of evasion happening.

A Fling, Brute Strength, Never / Return, and Final Reward were also helpful to push damage through.

I won my first game by attacking with everything, then applying a Brute Strength. I won my last game the same way.

Other games I got rid of too many of their Creatures and then was able to use fliers when they had none, use big Creatures that they could only chump block, gave a big Creature Menace, or made a Creature unblockable.

I really enjoyed this prerelease. It's probably been the most I've ever had at one.
