Felhide Petrifier Discussion

Thing is, I don't actually think I can build a much better Minotaur deck than the Standard one I just built.
Maybe I will take that as my starting point and put in all stars like Felhide Petrifier becoz dat deathtouch, tho.

IMHO, Heartless Summoning is actually really bad here. Only Felhide Petrifier, Kragma Warcaller, and Lord of Shatterskull Pass can take full advantage of a cost reduction, and having a bunch of 1/2's on the board instead of 2/3's is not what this deck seems to want to do. (Not to mention Gnarled Scarhide just dies.) Heartless Summoning is really only for HUGE creatures, and of course Myr Superion.

Using my own knowledge and EDHREC I've got a few ideas.
Under "Tribal" I looked at the most playable creatures in Minotaur tribal decks and came up with a fairly short list.
~ Ragemonger, Felhide Petrifier, Rageblood Shaman, Lord of Shatterskull Pass, Gorehorn Minotaurs, Kragma Warcaller, Oracle of Bones, Deathbellow Raider, Felhide Spiritbinder, Tahngarth, Talruum Hero, Taurean Mauler, Adaptive Automaton, Metallic Mimic; then new additions, Ahn-Crop Crasher and Cursed Minotaur; and finally if you want to lean into graveyard/discard synergy I'd go with Minotaur Explorer and Hurloon Shaman, and on top of those, if you're feeling really confident - Ruinous Minotaur.
Without a strong enough spread of creatures (unless some other good minotaurs besides Neheb get printed in Amonkhet), I'd recommend not going down the usual tribal route with cards like Door of Destinies and Coat of Arms, instead focus on what Neheb brings to the table. The clauses "As long as you have one or fewer cards in hand, Minotaurs you control get +2/+0." & "Whenever Neheb, the Worthy deals combat damage to a player, each player discards a card." show that this card wants you to be almost hellbent most of the time. A commander like Malfegor is a good place to start on this theme, giving us a pretty substantial list to choose from.
~ Malfegor himself, Avaricious Dragon, and Sire Of Insanity are probably as heavy as you want to go on non-minotaur creatures; Waste Not, Anthem of Rakdos, Gibbering Descent, Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace, Gamble, Grave Upheaval, Painful Quandary, Dark Withering, Kolaghan's Command, Call to the Netherworld, Dark Deal, Delirium Skeins, Behold the Beyond, Library of Leng, Pain Magnification, Megrim, Liliana's Caress, Quest for the Nihil Stone, Key to the City, and Necrogen Mists, all contribute to the discard theme. (If you want to use lands that end up in the graveyard Crucible of Worlds is definitely a great inclusion in the deck too).
We now want to keep Neheb from being blocked and/or killed by our opponents and get in for the damage we want him to, so I feel equipment are the way to go given our colors.
~ Sword of Feast and Famine does what we want here and more; Whispersilk Cloak, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Loxodon Warhammer, Basilisk Collar, and Darksteel Plate keep Neheb untouchable, unblockable, or allow him to attack without fear of being blocked; functionally similar, the aforementioned Key to the City, whilst not an artifact, works as a discard engine and allowing Neheb to go unblocked, and in another vein a utility land like Rogue's Passage will probably come in handy.
Obviously you include EDH all-stars like Sol Ring, Sensei's Divining Top and Command Tower. Then all you should have to do is look at cards that you want in the deck from red and black that fit the theme or are just strong by themselves. Examples of strong stand-alone cards include Damnation, Terminate, Exquisite Blood, Stranglehold, etc.

I used it in decks I played against my friend JUST so I could read it while playing. Those were the days.
Did you know there are also 3/3 Minotaur Tokens? They look ugly though, so I WON'T be buying any.
I did not know about Didgeridoo. What that has to do with Minotaurs is a mystery. They are Graeco-Roman, not Australian. Looks like I have a few more cards I need to gather. Luckily I already have Mogis.
I met a guy at our new EDH play group who was rocking a Mogis mat and apparently has an EDH Minotaur deck.
We had a lot to talk about and I hope to play against his deck soon.

I keep my Minotaur deck private but I thought you may be interested in the deck list, just to see another approach.
It's called Herd Mentality
3x Flurry of Horns
3x Impact Tremors
3x Cobbled Wings
Flying, Deathtouch Minotaurs. Ouch.

Not a bad build, but unless you've play-tested this to know it works with so few lands, I'd drop 1 or 2 of the Felhide Petrifier's and Kragma Warcaller's for lands. In particular I'd look at Mutavault, and you could maybe squeeze in Gnarled Scarhide for Felhide Brawler (minotaur don't really care about having big buts or blocking anyway).

I run a very similar minotaur deck and its pretty fun. One thing that I run that is pretty fun is Coordinated Assault and Weapon Surge just as a battle trick. It also pairs well with Felhide Petrifier in that your minotaurs could have death touch and first strike.
