Metallic Mimic Discussion

I would cut Festering Goblin, it is just really bad and instead make use of another zombie lord Death Baron being the best but stupidly expensive and then Metallic Mimic, Cemetery Reaper, Risen Executioner, Lord of the Undead, and Undead Warchief all also being options. I would also look into Vengeful Pharaoh for some incidental removal.

As for sideboard it is first necessary to evaluate the decks you face before making the sideboard.

First I would recommend putting this into a list and linking that; makes it much easier on the eye and give advice on.

I would go down to 20 lands and also make room for Metallic Mimic giving you another lord to play with in the deck which a deck like this likely needs.

The changes you are thinking of are pretty solid and I must say that Knight of the White Orchid is an all-star by itself and is a must include as knights shouldn't be playing that many land.

As for sideboard help if no one is playing a sideboard then it really isn't necessary if you don't plan on taking the deck to tournaments. If you want to have a sideboard figured out however I am more than happy to hep out but first I would need to know what type of decks you are facing regularly.

Thanks, marcopollo! There definitely ways to make this even cheaper. About $25 is in Metallic Mimic - I was lucky enough to pull two from boosters - but this card could easily be replaced with something cheaper, say, Thraben Inspector, which could also replace a couple Tezzeret's Gambit, which would cut the need for Glacial Fortress, which would also cut the costs even more. Of course, there are lots of tweaks that could be made - too many to list - best of luck with your build whichever way you go!

I would argue that Initiate's Companion is worse than Feral Prowler.

Where companion does let you untap things, that is if an opponent isn't just trading his/her 1/1 with it. Not only that, but even if you get something bigger, companion WILL die. Like, it is going to do literally no damage, and will only take out a decent-size creature under few circumstances.

Prowler, on the other hand, is a great blocker in a very aggressive deck where that is a necessary slot to fill. Drawing another card is always nice, as well. Anything with 1 toughness is either not going to attack, or probably has enough power to kill the prowler. Under those circumstances, just let the prowler die to kill a bigger fish and draw you a card.

So drop Initiate's Companion and put in Metallic Mimic. After all, even when this gets taken apart, there will be another deck for the mimic.

Ok how should i implement Metallic Mimic?

bonsai11943 on Minotaur Madness

O hey, nice to see another one attempting a modern, minotaur deck. One of the things I've realized is that most people are turned off from minotaurs because of its relatively high mana curve for an aggro deck, and its lack of decent 1-drops and 2-drops. :)

When I started, I was frustrated with how slow minotaurs were for aggro. So, for my deck ([B-R] Minotaur Aggro Tribal) I removed most cards with 4 CMC and above, only retaining Mogis, God of Slaughter. I also added Metallic Mimic as a much-needed 2-drop minotaur lord. Instead of first strike and death touch (which is cool btw), I focused on trample and lords (+1/+1). Also, instead of Madness (which is also cool), I also put in 12 Scry cards and a pair of Infiltration Lens just to improve draw, and take advantage of Ragemonger's ability by maximizing the number of minotaur drops per turn.

Though they're not part of my main deck right now, but I think Taurean Mauler, and Hammer of Purphoros might fit in nicely with a minotaur aggro. Thoughts?

This is a pretty frightening deck. Well done. Metallic Mimic is amazing here, and standard legal!
