I actually haven't really considered Tenacious Hunter yet. I am looking for a good card for the 4-mana slot, so now I have that and Merciless Javelineer. I'll be playing around with all of the cards and see what fits the deck well. Tenacious Hunter does definitely seem powerful, will basically always have its added abilities.

Merciless Javelineer is a woman, my bad.

Correction, you just accounted for all that... nice!

May I suggest Ruthless Sniper, you might have already though about him, but he definitely fits your theme and gives you a solid 1 drop. He also gives you a second interaction with discard/cycle, cause otherwise you're relying a Ifnir alone.

Second thought, I might suggest Merciless Javelineer, as he offers evasion, provides discard, and throws down counters at the enemy. He is however, a 4 drop and is red. Just a thought.

I once debated someone about pronouns used for Eldrazi Titans, with someone insisting I should use "she" instead of "it" for Emrakul (Emrakul, the Aeons Torn). It's a fricking alien monster that spawns offspring. We don't assign gender to rocks or microbes. If it doesn't reproduce sexually it's not a gender. That's the only gender thing that annoyed me. I figure most other creatures and races we see do make babies.

I do however find it odd for Leonin females to have 2 breasts indicating they don't have litters (Kemba, Kha Regent). So would a female Minotaur have her breast plate down low on her abdomen? Is it a single breast plate for her udders (Merciless Javelineer)? Do female Merfolk give live birth? If they don't lactate then why have breasts (Kiora, the Crashing Wave)? These are the questions that need answering! :P

Burning-Fist Minotaur is a neat two-drop Minotaur. Maybe cause some headaches early game.

Tahngarth, Talruum Hero is a neat legendary Minotaur that can take out weaker creatures.

Merciless Javelineer is reasonably aggressive and can prevent opponents' creatures from blocking.

Flurry of Horns creates a couple of Minotaur tokens that can come down swinging.

Bloodrage Brawler is pretty big for his cost, if you don't mind card disadvantage.

Gnarled Scarhide is an on-theme enchantment minotaur that is also a 1-drop.

No need to apologize, it just helps other people reading your comment to understand what's going on. Do the commenting tutorial, it really helps if you're unsure of stuff :)

I really like Merciless Javelineer tbh. There's just no room in this deck for him.

Tag your cards! But yes, I considered Merciless Javelineer. I just think there are better options.

You might look for replaying lands with SBing Ramunap Excavator. So, your cycling / discard outlet is your cycling lands and Merciless Javelineer, but you are sacking your deserts to do things to your opponents. Think about Dunes of the Dead, which, when sacked grant you a 2/2 zombie, while you're sacking it.

Replace my earlier suggestion of putting in the Abandoned Sarcophagus with Ramunap Excavator. Why? Because you're sacking lands and you can continuously do so, all while keeping your other threats going to your opponent's face.
