I have Flurry of Horns! It's even in the description.

I also used to run Warchanter of Mogis , but he always ended up costing too much for what I got out of him so I switched him out for Karplusan Minotaur.

Thanks for checking the deck out all the same; I'm considering changing up my utility cards and adding things in from my sideboard like Whip of Erebos, but I'm just not sure what to replace.

Karplusan Minotaur, Goblin Archaeologist, or Fiery Gambit could be good additions. I'd personally go for the Gambit mainboard, but the Goblin and/or Minotaur are good sideboard targets.

There's Karplusan Minotaur, but I'm not even sure he'll stick around long enough to be able to activate his ability...

Unfortunately because of the wording on Krark's Thumb, you can only flip twice for your own coin flip, not your opponent's, meaning that your opponent is more likely to win than you are from Mana Clash. I found it in a reddit post that explains it better than I could. Still a solid deck concept, though because of this I would suggest running 4 Karplusan Minotaur, and removing two counterspells, so you can get the most damage out of mana clash.

Postmortal_Pop on Better coin flip cards

1 year ago

So I was reading the new pattern article and was inspired by a comment by sabertech about coin toss cards and how they don't use the mechanic in an effective way.

This got me thinking about a way to make this coin mechanic actually worth using. Here are some ideas I've thrown together, any opinions would be appreciated.

Like this, there is a clear and defined negative to using this card, I would even go as far as to say it's worse then Lightning Axe being that it deals less damage and the potential negative is higher.

Chaos Ramp
Show

This would be a strictly better Pyretic Ritual, a card that is lack luster already, because even if you fail it basically just discards itself.

goblin chance mage Show

Coin flipping has little to no support, you're playing raw chance in a skill game after all. This little guy helps you sway the odds while also holding true to the idea of the mechanic. If you fail he is a great Boon but if you succeed in the flip to start with then you tapped him for nothing.

Sore Looser Show

Like a one sides Karplusan Minotaur this card aims to make every failure into a minor win it's basically jank anywhere else.

Krark, taker of chances Show

Keeping to the flavor if Krark's Thumb and its double flip, Krark himself doubled the spell that flips the coin. The wording will need some work but the idea is that if you succeed, you succeed twice.

Any opinions on the idea would be appreciated, I hope you all enjoy the idea

I made a deck similar to this, only mono red with less time spent on it. Mirror Gallery works wonders with Krark's Thumb. It doesn't take much to essentially guarentee that your flip will be what you want. After that it only takes one Game of Chaos to win and if you don't draw one Chance Encounter has you covered, especially if Karplusan Minotaur is out.

Let's get real though... Mana Screw.
