GoblinsBeatElves, I use Oracle of Bones to combo with Dictate of the Twin Gods, that allows me to do double dmg with everything i have and the best combo is with Flurry of Horns, allowing me to put 3 hasty minotaurs in field for only 3 mana, most of the time.

You’re welcome. The deck looks better, so nice job on that. I do have one question, however. How is Oracle of Bones performing for you? It seems like it would be more in place of a deck with instants/sorceries like Apex of Power and other super expensive spells. I can see how it would sort of work in this deck, being either a 3/1 hasty creature that gets to save 2 or 3 mana on an instant, or a 5/3 hasty creature, so I don’t know.

Do you actually own THAT manabase? Holy crap, batman. My car is worth less...

Regarding the deck, there are some thing i don't like too much. First, most of your cards have too low of a mana cost to even try doing serious damage with hulk. With twelve cmc1 spells, there is a high chance of hitting three of these, so that would be like 3 damage. Totally not worth it. And even besides this, the average damage off of hulk will be pretty small. Second, considering the boardstate you can't really build here, paying half the life for temporal extertion isn't a realistic option, as the extra turn probably won't do too much.

A card to consider for the first problem is Browbeat. Cmc is at least a little better for hulk, and it will also give you things to do with your bonus turns. Have you consideren some creatures with tribute? (Like Oracle of Bones)

Added Dictate of the Twin Gods and Balefire Liege (bought it online), took out 2x Oracle of Bones and 2x Fated Return for some more lands.

Living Lore, Oracle of Bones, combined with cheap rattlesnake cards to keep you alive until Lore drops. Check out Living Ultimatum for a decklist.

My suggestion to you is to make this deck blue.

Play play sets of pila-pala, Grand Architect, Mycosynth Golem and Mycosynth Lattice. - that's probably the best way to get enough mana out fast enough to make this work. But it's also expensive as all get out, so the next option is to play cards like Kraken Hatchling Yoked Ox Wall of Fog - then I would run cards like Sprouting Thrinax Captured Sunlight and basically anything else that has "cascade." Then play cards like Oracle of Bones anything that can get you a card for free is good.

Cause honestly the ultimatum cards are too expensive to be used regularly.

Only having 4 creatures seems risky. If you're looking for other silly creatures to add, Oracle of Bones?

I have a kitchen-table Minotaur tribal and I run a playset Browbeat. Opponent rarely takes the 5 damage and I often get to slip it out with Oracle of Bones for free on tribute.

Howl of the Horde is also fun with Browbeat.

Draw all the burn!
