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!

TheRedGoat no worries at all, mate.

I'll give you just a few recommendations for Minotaurs you could add.

Felhide Petrifier - Deathtouch for everybody
Kragma Warcaller - Haste machine
Oracle of Bones has interesting synergy with Flurry of Horns
Ragemonger - reduced casting costs
Mogis, God of Slaughter - Minotaur God

Now I have to rebuild this hardhitta71194 and I have no idea where to start.

And yes, Oracle of Bones was there to facilitate Flurry of Horns. It let me bluff a lot, too. My friends never knew if I had Flurry of Horns in hand, when I cast Oracle of Bones.
