Pitiless Vizier

Pitiless Vizier


Whenever you cycle or discard a card, Pitiless Vizier gains indestructible until end of turn. (Damage and effects that say "destroy" don't destroy it. If its toughness is 0 or less, it's still put into its owner's graveyard.)

apart from Demon of Wailing Agonies and Vault of Whispers this deck could be modern legal.

you got to many high costed cards that do nothing, don't have synergy or are straight up trash.

you dont have to read all of this... its a lot. eg: Fen Hauler (you have almost no artifacts) and you could replace it for Gurmag Angler , Steel Wall , Prakhata Club Security , Prizefighter Construct can be chump blocked and dies to anything, Pitiless Vizier how do you discard or cicle cards?, Sengir Vampire high cmc, Phage the Untouchable the same but its actually a neat card that you could make some jank deck (thanks for the idea), Nightmare trash, Night Market Guard trash too, Extractor Demon to high costed unless you have a way to trow it on the gy, Dread Defiler the same and does nothing really, Bloodhunter Bat trash, Demon of Wailing Agonies you dont have a commander, Haunted Plate Mail to high costed and you got too many creatures to even use it, Staff of the Death Magus not usefull, Cinder Barrens and Forsaken Sanctuary whats the point??.

uff dude, from what im looking its a deck you made from with the cards you had lying around, so you want to first have an idea of the game plan you wanna go to, a discard base control or aggro or reanimator and so on. or see what card you would want to work with and make the deck around it, when you do i can help you build the deck. just make a comment or hit me up idk.

Oh, and legendofa? Pitiless Vizier is a minotaur too. Also, he works with the Flamewake Phoenix.

Love your Pauper Battle Box! Maybe you could use some more payoffs for cycling cards like Grisly Survivor Horror of the Broken Lands Pitiless Vizier

I have a very successfull minotaur build that doesn't use the Pitiless Vizier but full playsets of Neheb, the Worthy, Bloodrage Brawler and Metallic Mimic. I would also suggest using Supernatural Stamina to protect your core creatures and overcome heavy blockers with the additional buff combined with first strike. I also like to run three to four copies of Key to the City because of the additional evasion, which is difficult to aquire in a Minotaur deck. Finally, I also use three Cut / Ribbons to include an X spell for Neheb, the Eternal, of which I play two.And, if you don't mind paying a bit more for your deck, you could also run two Hazoret the Fervent for better discard synergy and of course a few Chandra, Torch of Defiance.

I disagree with the above comment that you "need" a playset of Fatal Push. Sure it's a strong card with the correct build but it is absolutely not worth it for you to jam in $30+ worth of Pushes just because they're a solid card. With your only way to trigger revolt being a singleton Fling the power of Fatal Push drops off hard. Unlicensed Disintegration is an excellent removal spell and the only thing I'd replace it for is the Walk the Planks that you have in the maybeboard already. I do agree with the dropping of Magma Spray, you really need the ability to hit face whenever you can so going up on Shock and some other creatures seems better (keep somes sprays in the sideboard if you play against graveyard decks). Last thing about the removal, I definitely wouldn't mainboard Hour of Devastation, Sweltering Suns, or Lost Legacy. Hour and Suns are the kind of card you never want your opponent to cast on you so why cast it on yourself for them? I would sideboard all 3 of those cards to bring in against decks that you absolutely need a boardwipe against like zombies.

For the creatures, as stated previously there are a lot stronger minotaurs in the Theros block so making the jump to modern could make the deck a lot stronger. But for Standard I think your best thing to add in is more of each Neheb (maybe a 3-2 split of Worthy-Eternal), another Bloodrage Brawler, and Grisly Survivor. I suggest dropping Pitiless Vizier, Tilonalli's Skinshifter and Wildfire Eternal completely. Adding in a couple copies of Tormenting Voice can help you hit the discard triggers you need and also dig through your deck.

Based off the previous comments this use to be a different deck lol. But! As for Minotaur, Metallic Mimic would be amazing here naturally. Having more Neheb would be a good thing also. Either one I think you should have at least 3 of each. Id switch them for Tilonalli's Skinshifter, Pitiless Vizier and Wildfire Eternal. Naturally Fatal Push or Walk the Plank.

Hey there,I would suggest you remove Emberhorn Minotaur, Illusory Wrappings and Pitiless Vizier for stuff like Ahn-Crop Crasher, Fatal Push, Tormenting Voice and Merciless Javelineer

And probably would replace Renegade Tactics with Cartouche of Zeal

Tezzeret's Touch has 0 targets main/side, So i'd remove those entirely.

Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh also seems really out of place here....

Would Pitiless Vizier work in your deck?

With Neheb (the Worthy) he would be a 4/2 first strike that can also become indestructible, and with 1 or 0 cards in hand he's a 6/2 first strike

Warfire Javelineer could be good in your deck as well as removal (depending on how many instants/sorceries are in the graveyard) and a creature.

Combat Celebrant might be worth checking out as well if you don't mind having a couple of humans. Having an extra combat step is always helpful for aggro

I'm not 100% sure if these are good for the deck because I'm not the best at deck building, but they seem like pretty good things to put in
