Fanatic of Mogis

Creature — Minotaur Shaman

When Fanatic of Mogis enters the attlefield, it deals damage to each opponent equal to your devotion to red. (Each R in the mana costs of permanents you control counts towards your devotion to red.)

This is seriously a nice deck. I like how you added more one-drops. I am wondering why you don't use Fanatic of Mogis . Perhaps there isn't enough dedication to red to justify the mana costs...? At least I really like that idea, where the minotaur army progressively gets stronger and stronger.

McToters on Chainers Nightmare!

Hey again! Sick commander choice! Chainer is one of my favorite characters back from the Odyssey cycle. I was pumped to see him, Gerrard, Grevan and Tahngarth back in action.

Anyway, I’ll see if I can suggest a few things here even though your list looks really great already.

You are running this in your Edgar deck and I think you should definitely be running it here is Emergence Zone . That flash will be absolutely killer with Chainer out, since it will give you the ability to drop a new creature on the battlefield during each opponent’s turn as well. Needless to say Vedalken Orrery would be the next suggestion I give you for the same reasons.

Now since you want creatures in your graveyard and also the ability to actuvate Chainer by discarding I’m thinking a few wheel effects might help you out pretty big. So stuff like Magus of the Wheel , Reforge the Soul , Molten Psyche , Dragon Mage , and the OG (obviously expensive Wheel of Fortune . Something like Faithless Looting could be a nice smaller version to add in if you don't want too many full-on wheel effects.

Glint-Horn Buccaneer seems like a cool creature to add.

Feldon's Cane is a bit more janky but I think can act in your favor and help in 2 ways: 1) it will reload your deck if too many cards are going into your graveyard—-this in particular seems unlikely but possible during some of those long brawls—-and 2) it can, in a very not ideal way, protect the cards in your graveyard if someone were to Bojuka Bog you. I know using the cane gets rid of the graveyard also but the cards won’t be gone. They’ll just be back in your deck. Something tells me I’m forgetting a better solution to protection your graveyard from these kinds of shenanigans, but I’ll roll with this suggestion for now and see if you like it.

Fanatic of Mogis is a red version of Gray Merchant of Asphodel .

Let me know what you think! +1

After further testing, I decided to remove Keldon Firebombers and Fanatic of Mogis in order to add more "fun" stuff!

Thank you for the suggestions!

Oh wow, it didn't occur to me until just now that Godo, Bandit Warlord only untaps samurai, not ALL creatures like I thought... Good spotting !

The thing with Fanatic of Mogis is that his ability hits all opponents, so even if I only get my devotion to 4 or 5, that's still 5 damage on every opponent every turn.

I do like Insult though and will try to find a spot for it!

Blood Moon seems to be quite good, and I might as well try to fit Bedlam and possibly Last Chance too.

As for damage doublers, I think I'd like them to be on a creature, such as Avatar of Slaughter . That way I can hard cast them if needed and also cheat them out with Ilharg, the Raze-Boar or Sneak Attack which I can't do with enchantments. That being said, I might try to squeeze in another creature damage doubler, such as Angrath's Marauders .

Thank you very much for the suggestions! I will change some cards around!

I like the deck (but hate the Keldon Firebombers ) i have a few suggestions for you.

Godo, Bandit Warlord doesnt seem to do much for you other than to fetch an equipment of wich you seem to only be running three of anyway so that doesnt seem very good. Fanatic of Mogis is also a creature that doesnt seem to do much and seems to be a worse bogardan hellkite. Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip also feels a bit meh to me.

As for suggestions though, i have a few (of wich only a couple is jank, i swear!) lets start off with prevention mechanics. There is some burn in your deck but i still feel like you could maybe add Leyline of Punishment or maybe Insult / Injury to get through fog effects like Solitary Confinement and Constant Mists .

You could also slot in some damage doublers like Gratuitous Violence and Furnace of Rath to speed up the combat damage. With the cheating and power of your creatures you could benefit from Bedlam to just bypass the blockers. Also mono red Have you considered Blood Moon ?

Brand might be good depending on how much theft effects you face, and Last Chance for that extra turn when the opposition is tapped out within lethal. Seize the Day is a good extra turn spell that gets your commander an extra combat to sneak something in. Maybe a In the Web of War for more power when you sneak creatures in.

As for ETB effects how about Bludgeon Brawl + Vulshok Battlemaster to get a creature that gets power and toughness equal to the converted mana cost of all non creature artifacts in play.

Just a few thoughts.

Funkydiscogod on converting an old deck into ...

I would say Aether Vial would be better than Heartless Summoning at helping power out the minotaurs. Once it gets three counters, put a free Ragemonger on to the battlefield, then use your mana to cast the rest of your hand. Aether Vial also makes the drawback of Ruinous Minotaur irrelevant.

If you're willing to give up on the idea of Minotaur Tribal, but you could put your Boros Reckoner and Fanatic of Mogis in a devotion to red deck: something with Leyline of Lightning , Quest for Pure Flame , Goblin Chainwhirler , and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , maybe?

Leylines (Leyline of Punishment/Leyline of Lightning) are a neat way to boost your devotion for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx very quickly.

If you want to punish non-red decks, Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon are very useful.

Running wheel-effects like Reforge the Soul would be pretty neat to make them discard their early-game hand, potentially screwing them over.

Swapping some World at Wars for Fury of the Horde could be beneficial, but I'm not too sure.

If you want to invest more into devotion, Fanatic of Mogis, Heartlash Cinder, and Thunderous Might are all good options.

You could implement the combo of Madcap Experiment + Platinum Emperion since you're in mono-red and aren't running any artifacts at the moment.
