The 3 Gnarled Scarhide (they'd die) and a Butcher's Glee . If the deck was made more Heartless Summoning-focused I'd also cut the rest of the Butcher's Glee and 2 Titan's Strength (or any 3 other spells) to make room for the rest of the Kragma Warcaller s and Ragemonger s, since they're what let the deck go crazy with Summoning. It could also be worth experimenting with cutting 1 or 2 lands, Summoning + Ragemonger will give you discounts and 20 is enough to get you to 4 lands on curve around 60% of the time (probably the max amount of mana you'd need with Summoning).

Gnarled Scarhide is probably worse then Bloodsoaked Champion for your deck.

Oh if you don't like brain maggot then Gnarled Scarhide, Baleful Eidolon, Spiteful Returned or Nighthowler would all be fine...

I love the insanity of this, so have a +1, but I wonder would Semblance Anvil in conjunction with Gnarled Scarhide and Spiteful Returned, both zombies but of type enchantment and creature make it a little faster?

Thanks LikeSpider943, I hadn't taken much notice of the new core set cards but Stitcher's Supplier seems like it would be a good fit just for the enters the battlefield trigger, if I can get it into the yard efficiently as a possible chump blocker later on in the game it is even more powerful. Should be worth testing it in place of Golgari Thug or Gnarled Scarhide even though they each serve their purpose of recursion or enabling delirium right now.

Turn 2 ragemonger would be a much-much stronger play.

Just imagine, opponent plays his tapland you follow up by discarding Simian Spirit Guide to play Ragemonger for free Gnarled Scarhides, then next turn you play Kragma Warcaller / Rageblood Shaman / Neheb, the Worthy to swing for lethal on turn 3...

Btw. Neheb, the Worthy is by far the best lord you can have, first strike is crazy strong (and you should invest in some madness cards + Faithless Looting)

P.s.: Bloodrage Brawler dies to everything - which is not ok, since it cost you 2 cards!

DMFF thanks alot! yeah I have been playing this a lot on fridays and actually havent lost a match with it yet. The very closest I came to losing was to affinity, but he got flooded just in time for me to come back, so I lucked out. but it definitely surprises people, and they have no idea how to side against it.

It seems that I lose most of my game 1s though, which is never a good place to start. I can side in Blood Moon and damping sphere against most match ups, and it almost makes me think main board Blood Moon would be good.

ZorrosRage thanks for the suggestions, I have tried tinkering with the madness cards a bit, and they are just a little too unreliable. I know I am getting a nonbo interaction when I play Bloodrage Brawler without them, but usually I have an extra land to pitch that doesnt really hurt me too much. I like the idea of running Burning-Fist Minotaur though, but would have to swap out the Metallic Mimic for him.

Gnarled Scarhide performs a lot better for me than I initially expected. Bestow is a really crazy effect. It makes it so my Neheb, the Worthy can get over a potential defender really easily, and then protects from a board wipe by letting me keeps some board presence after everything dies. The other trick he is good for is to bestow on your opponent's good blocker, because it makes it so the bestowed creature can't block. I have stolen a few games like that and it feels dirty, but really good.

Overall I think the scarhide is a fine addition to the list, but I cant help but hope for some new rakdos minotaur one drop with hybrid mana from return to return to ravnica.

since you are using Bloodrage Brawler can possibly use Burning-Fist Minotaur, and Collective Brutality for Madness enablers. gives you access to a few potential side cards Fiery Temper, Alms of the Vein and Dark Withering. Just thought it was a fun idea

also do you like Gnarled Scarhide? I know he is your only 1 drop but not sure if he is worth it.
