Taurean Mauler Discussion
1 month ago
I dont see you having the funds for Taiga, Plateau, Arid Mesa, Savannah and some of the other lands. For these I would just add basics. Krosan Verge is a cheap sub. The next couple of cards to consider would be Taurean Mauler, Mirror Entity and Chameleon Colossus. You do have a Star of Extinction and other board-wipes, with Boros Charm. Hope these get you in the right direction.

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.

Hi there, I have two recommendations for you:
-Give a try on creatures with changeling like Taurean Mauler

I think you definitely need to find room for more lands. All the ramp in the world is basically useless if you're using it to make up for land drops instead of in addition to land drops. I would go up to between 35 and 38 lands. In addition, some great changeling cards like Chameleon Colossus, Mirror Entity, and Taurean Mauler would probably be better than some of the weaker dinos.

Personally i find artifacts super usefull in edh since they do all the stuff your color lack. I think Sunforger has a place in this deck, as both Return to Dust and War Flare are perfect targets. Another equipment that could be great is Conqueror's Flail. Its just kind off a better Darksteel Plate if you ask me. The cheaper version is Price of Glory, and to be fair, white might have an even better one (im mostly a red guy).If you are gonna run some equipments Godo, Bandit Warlord is great. You likely wont have a lot of samurai, but vigilance is basically the same here.
You can go Godo, fetch Sunforger. Attack with Godo and the team, fetch War Flare with Sunforger, hit again. When you spend so much time and effort pumping up your guys, you better make it worthwhile am I right ;)
You can run Bonehoard if you want another budget big equipment to fetch
Anointed Procession is very expensive, but i dont really see it going down in the nearest future. Might wanna grab one now to save some bucks honestly. I also like Taurean Mauler and Stalking Vengeance.

I would be leery of running Howling Mine. Remember, you aren't giving away a card for a card, you're giving away three. Without some sort of effect that really capitalizes on extra card draw, like Nekusar, the Mindrazer, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Psychosis Crawler, The Locust God, or a mill strategy, it's typically a terrible idea to give your opponents extra cards. It can be good in an artifact deck with ways to tap it though. I'd replace it with Outpost Siege or one of the equipment that draws cards. Honestly, you're doing pretty well on card-draw anyway and could replace it with a land or a ramp effect. I only mentioned it to show that they were out there and applicable to Boros colors. At least with Temple Bell you can be political as well as control whether or not people draw. Kind of on-theme too.
I think your creature count is slightly low for an aggro deck, but with Iroas protecting them and a heavy Equipment them it's likely fine! You'll probably have to find out in playtesting.
I feel like you don't have enough ramp to only be running 33 lands, though your deck's average CMC is relatively low. Playtesting it will be the final judge but it may be a bit of a gamble. It depends if your group does Partial Paris mulliganing. Makes it easier to gamble with a low land count.
Taurean Mauler is a Samurai! So is Mirror Entity. Both very good in Commander but I'd understand if you want to keep the deck's creatures more "pure". Flavor matters, after all. Masako the Humorless gives pseudo-vigilance but Always Watching and Brave the Sands are kick-ass cards and already in your deck. Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker is extremely good but not budget at all.
Call to Glory is quite flavorful but not super-awesome. Tenza, Godo's Maul is a fantastic piece of equipment (Kamigawa too). Cathars' Crusade is very good for a deck like this but not a cheap cheap card. Same with True Conviction. Your budget seems to allow for a decent amount of $2 cards though so I'd consider them. Legion's Initiative is decent and can save your board from a Wrath of God. Spear of Heliod might be okay. Traditionally Samurai more commonly used spears and bows on the actual battlefield.
Konda's Banner can be an excellent card and is very flavorful but it doesn't actually work that well in this deck, in my opinion. Iroas isn't always a creature and he'll only ever give creatures +1/+1, being a God and not a Samurai. You have a decent number of Legends though, and FWIW all are human so even Godo can use it well. It's always better to have it on your commander since you can reliably play him. Half your creatures would get +2/+2 and the rest +1/+1 from one of the other Legends. Not bad, but you could do an anthem effect like Dictate of Heliod that is more reliable and harder to remove. The mana cost of the banner is pretty great though. Maybe Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon"? Not amazing, but flavorful. Glorious Anthem is nice. Always Watching is an anthem too so that's great.
You could drop one to three of your Arrest effects for other utility cards or increased land/ramp. I love effects like that and I love shutting stuff down but you have an above-average amount. Perhaps change one of them to an Oblivion Ring for slightly more versatility. The nice thing about the Arrest-like cards is they don't send commanders to the Command Zone.

Liked the tribal theame, but Iroas, God of Victory is not dinosaur! kkkk
If you can, take a look on my build, I think you could have some ideas Barney's Fury! RAWR
