Spell_Slam on PDH - Zada Hedron Grinder

Looks like a great start!

You're missing a few of the card-draw cards that really make this deck competitive. I'd recommend you add Renegade Tactics and Panic are the main ones you're missing, and the deck can't get enough of them. I even considered running Rile , but it's a bit risky.

I just wanted to make sure you knew that copied spells off of Zada won't trigger Prowess and other "Cast" triggers. They're still fine cards, but maybe not as effective as you maybe thought.

When playing Red PDH, I don't leave home without Destructive Tampering . That card is so good as an overcosted Shatter or Falter effect.

I see you're also playing Goblin Freerunner . Since Zada doubles up as an ally, I take advantage of that by also playing Akoum Flameseeker and Ondu Champion for some recurring fixing and trample-giving. They are pretty reliable with Zada.

It's not necessarily synergistic with Zada, but Rites of Initiation is an awesome finisher with all the card draw we do.

Here's a link to my list. I went with a more Goblin Tribal theme that has been shredding through opponents so far. I'd like to see what you think! Zada, Card Advantage Grinder

I second ballisticexperiment. You need more consistency, otherwise, you'll win like 10% of the time. Not a big fan of Volcanic Rambler, Makindi Sliderunner and Ondu Champion, the first because it costs too much, the other ones because you have no way to get out multiple lands per turn.

Have you considered Emberhorn Minotaur over Ondu Champion? This would free some slots by totally cutting away Ally synergy and let you try something new with more discard/cycle effects and synergies and maybe some Madness.

FINALLY a Minotaur that doesn't die to a pissy little board wipe.

It will take the place of Ondu Champion in my deck, which then frees up extra spells.

I wouldn't worry too much about that Enchantment. Just get rid of it and continue as normal.

YASS!! Proper Yard hate!!

Although that will muck up my Control deck.

Enjoying this last couple of spoilers.

Well sure. You can have any magical christmas-land play with just about any deck.

Amonkhet Minotaurs

Turn 1: Foreboding Ruins

Turn 2: Hanweir Battlements + Bloodrage Brawler, pitch Cut / Ribbons

Turn 3: Mountain + Neheb, the Worthy
Hit for 5 damage

Turn 4: Swamp + Bloodrage Brawler, pitch Ondu Champion, use Hanweir Battlements + to give Bloodrage Brawler Haste

1 card left in hand so all Minotaurs get +2/0
Hit for 18 damage

How often has that happened? Not once.

barneystinson22 I only wanted one Creature in the 4 drop spot and prefer Ondu Champion, but you can easily substitute Merciless Javelineer.

You'd maybe want some card draw, because you will be churning through them.

Of course Zulaport Cutthroat is then not very useful, so you should take that out as well. Maybe put Painful Lesson in its place.

TheRedCzar if you go with Yahenni's Expertise you might think about Gravedigger instead of Minotaur Sureshot.

Between that and Supernatural Stamina you can save a couple of Minotaurs after you boardwipe.

I appreciate the input!

I haven't had a chance to try out this version of the deck yet, but I'm very open to making changes to the Sideboard at the moment. I just need a chance to sit down and see which of those cards I feel will help me out the most. I like the cards you both recommended.

I'll swap out a Bloodrage Brawler for an Ondu Champion as well if I feel like Bloodrage keeps getting me in bad spots. But I want to test out this version of the Mainboard first. Just haven't had the time this week unfortunately.
