Faith of the Devoted Discussion

Immortal Servitude would work better than Rally since you get to keep your creatures for one extra mana. Vampiric Rites is also pretty good instead of Village Rites since you can keep using it instead of hoping to draw it. If you are playing casual instead of Modern, Bone Miser would make your deck pretty strong. Keep him in sideboard probably. Faith of the Devoted can make your deck ridiculously strong as well.

Hey mate i like the idea of your deck, is somewhat diferent from almost all tinybones decks around even my one build, Have you considered Faith of the Devoted since you can win right of the bat with skirge familiar in the big discards and also earn some life if needed, Wake the Dead is also a card that might be good for your build since you can reanimate the big daddy deamon and some more creatures to go crazy on tutor, Bitter Ordeal may do some work for you, and lastly did you ever consider Rankle, Master of Pranks ? keep the good work.

First of all, thanks a lot for the upvote and commenting! :D
About Glint-Horn Buccaneer, I don't know, maybe. Between Amonkhet and Ikoria it seems like there's a lot of payoffs for cycling, in fact, there's a Drannith Stinger in the list which has a similar effect, and cycles itself. A weird upside about the Stinger is that you can find it cycling Vedalken AEthermage, which is not only useful in some cases, but hilarious in all cases!
I can see cutting one of the enchantments, like Faith of the Devoted for this, although Faith gives you life. In general, I'd say that I'm not sure, which means I'll have to test for it. Thanks a lot for the suggestion! :D

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.

Awesome Deck! For your Consideration, all that discarding might warrant Faith of the Devoted in your side board. Keep up the Great Work!

I used to play a somewhat similar deck for Gitrog and I might try out your build as it seems a lot more competitive than mine was.
One of my favorite cards to play in the deck was Skirge Familiar. It gets you infinite mana really fast, particularly if you have Dakmor Salvage in hand and Gitrog on board, since you just infinitely dredge it back to hand each time you discard. I'd then use all my draw triggers to draw my entire deck, cast one of my win-con spells (Liliana's Indignation, Praetor's Grasp, or Faith of the Devoted) to kill either everyone by milling them out or using Familiar with Faith to drain everyone to death by using the black mana he produces to pay 1 for Faith. I play a lot of Kingdom at my LGS so I needed some wincons that don't kill everyone at once on the chance that I'm the King, Protector or Traitor. And if you hold up one of the Titans in hand with your discard outlet you can sorta protect yourself from someone trying to force you to draw with zero cards in your deck. Card is really good, I love it.
