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.

Bano42 - Yeah I'm that guy that likes to random brew the hell out of my standard and really cause a ruckus, so whenever I go online looking for shells, it's always the quirky ones that get me. I also think that Merciless Javelineer fits your curve as a 4 drop, it's ability to put -1/-1s on anything I think it's pretty invaluable. If you're worried about post rotation, then you're probably going to lose an aspect of competitiveness, however, I can understand that financials involved with that.

I notice, aside from Push, you lack some matter of 1 drops, Soul-Scar Mage, though not a minotaur himself, fits your deck and also, puts -1/-1s for all those Fiery Tempers and such. I will be fiddling with this a bit in the next couple of days, but I can say for a shell it's very good.

Thanks for the help Argy and darklinglion398! Only reason for Trespasser's Curse was because if I can stick it turn 2 against Zombies or other aggro decks it seems pretty strong. However, i just playtested it against someone playing a U/W Flash deck and it was just not good enough... so ya

Cut some Abrades for Sweltering Suns, cut Merciless Javelineer for Soul-Scar Mage, cut Aether Hub for Scavenger Grounds, and redid the sideboard.

Do you think Merciless Javelineer would work in this deck? Or would you not have enough cards in hand for it to be viable?
