Grisly Survivor Discussion

Hey this is great! I have a very similar deck and really love it. Grisly Survivor is seriously underrated I think and often gets overlooked in the first game. Spinehorn Minotaur and Grisly Survivor are both really good targets for Unearth and can get out early if you loot on the first turn.
I would definitely think about adding Unearth to use that added synergy to your deck and Fists of Flame enabled very scary plays with Spinehorn Minotaur . If I were you I would go for a full playset of the spinehorn so you can have two real threats in the 3 slot. 4x Faithless Looting is also the way to go. It costs 1 and can be used from the graveyard so it just activates your big threats more regularly than Thrill of Possibility or Cathartic Reunion .
I splash green for Deadshot Minotaur as well because cycle + removal + minotaur = Love
I really like this deck and am glad to see someone else noticed the good synergies. Keep up the good work with Winotaurs!

Hey Matt, 'saw your reddit post and wanted to help!
I'd drop some of the vanilla madness for a few more lands and ramp (34-36 lands/ 6-8 ramp).
Here are a few more:
Hazoret's Monument ... win-more.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to my LGS to test it at the monthly pauper event.
My initially conclusions from a handful of matches online is that the deck is pretty slow and was missing a later game threat. That's why I brought in Horror of the Broken Lands for Grisly Survivor . Maybe I should think about simplifying the mana base. All the tap lands limit the usefulness of the permission package in the deck in the early going.
Also, it's a lot of clicking and so you'd better be really comfortable with the interface or you're going to burn your clock really quickly. I'm just new to mtgo and so it's a bit tough for me so far.
I'm hoping to do more play testing on both in the next month and should have more useful feedback on performance in specific matchups in the meta and evaluation of specific cards.

Thanks for the nice words and feedback! I'm honestly not sure what's up with Circular Logic . I tried changing the printing but it still shows as an illegal card despite it definitely being pauper legal.
I was just talking today with some people who suggested putting in some cycle lands, I wasn't sure if it mattered whether they are Barren Moor or Lonely Sandbar . I will definitely do that though. Makes them way more valuable in late game.
I had thought about Putrid Imp and Aquamoeba but both are pretty vulnerable to ping (amoeba opens up when I activate its ability) and I liked the relatively more hearty Dragoon with the evasion it gives. I settled on Oblivion Crown as the alternate/supplementary engine since it can allow Cunning Survivor and Grisly Survivor to become even more threatening while being a little more difficult to remove (at least that's my inexperienced thought).
I really like the idea of Gorgers for applying pressure but I'm just not sure what to take out for them. Maybe I don't need Duress and Divest in the sideboard, so I can move some removal (of which I have a lot) and put the Gorgers in.
I'm also wondering if I should have some way to draw. Something like the Careful Study I have in the maybe board. It's why I was also considering Looter il-Kor . I've also kicked around the idea of a Thorn of the Black Rose for the draw that comes with Monarch.
Sorry for the lengthy reply and thanks again!

You could play some of the cycle lands (Barren Moor, Tranquil Thicket, Lonely Sandbar) for some "free" cycle cards. Also, I think you should go up on the Cunning Survivor/Grisly Survivors so you have the max number of payoffs. Oona's Grace is the slowest and costliest card you're playing, plus it's not very good in multiples, so I'd cut a couple of that.
