Vorrac Battlehorns Discussion
1 week ago
Vicious Shadows actually doesn't work (nor does Stalking Vengeance, and for the same reason), because when a creature (or in this instance a token) doesn't die when it's exiled. I would suggest Warstorm Surge instead. Which I just noticed was in the maybeboard. Speaking of cards in the maybeboard, Swiftfoot Boots is probably better than Lightning Greaves here because shroud makes Valduk untargetable for equip costs. This would normally not be a problem; just equip it to a different creature for 0 mana. However with a semi-creatureless brew like this you'd have to do all your equipping on the postcombat main phase.
I might suggest some of the human-based equipment from OG Innistrad; Avacyn's Collar, Bladed Bracers, Butcher's Cleaver, Heirloom Blade could be really cool (and you could run a human or two for good measure), Sharpened Pitchfork is nice, though first strike is kinda useless, Silver-Inlaid Dagger is AWESOME, and Slayer's Plate may get some work done.
Some generally good equipments include Champion's Helm for hexproof, Chitinous Cloak to force opponents to make tough blocker choices, honestly General's Kabuto may be worth is as the ultimate protection card, you could consider Kitesail for evasion, Konda's Banner would be great and pump your tokens (and yes it would give Valduk +2/+2), Kusari-Gama would be a serious 'don't block me or I fuck you' effect, Ogre's Cleaver is honestly insane, Pariah's Shield, though costly, more or less makes you untouchable, Pennon Blade is worth the cost, the classic Short Sword, Sigiled Sword of Valeron is dece, Skullclamp is OH MY GOD, Strata Scythe is equally insane, the swords are famously insanely powerful, Trusty Machete is okay, Vorrac Battlehorns is an easy way to win fast, and Vulshok Battlegear and Vulshok Morningstar are decent.
And yes, I did slog through every equipment in Magic history to find those.
Props to Heliogabale for some good ideas on cuts. I might add No-Dachi, seems a little overcosted (also it's worth noting Mask of Avacyn has the same mana specs for an arguably better effect), Skeleton Key is not going to do anything for very long, Valduk is probably going to be too big too fast to make use of first strike (@ Sparring Collar), Browbeat is 5 damage to an opponent for 3 mana. Realistically no one is going to let you draw 3 cards.
Sorry, this comment was a looong one.

I know this page isn't up to date but here's what I'd do:
I would add Mind's Eye 100%. I think a Sun Titan and Armageddon would be worth it. The expensive Equipment cards become better with more focus, like Puresteel Paladin. I'm not sold on Leonin Shikari for such a creature-light deck.
Maybe swap Disenchant with Forsake the Worldly in case you need the draw? Return to Dust is the obvious upgrade. Duelist's Heritage is nice because it isn't an aura and has funny political value on other peoples' turns.
I'm thinking that you should perhaps plan on a more late-game strategy--i.e. more expensive Equipments with bigger bonuses. Seems that the quick win is only viable in 1v1. Perhaps you may want to keep the deck 1v1 only?
I would say drop Armored Ascension, Ethereal Armor (maybe), Serra's Embrace, Unquestioned Authority, Mesa Enchantress, Umbra Mystic, Helm of the Gods. That should open up room for more artifact synergy or more interaction (removal). I'm not sold on Piston Sledge, Hero's Blade, Vorrac Battlehorns, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Ring of Thune.

Cranial Plating , Fireshrieker , Dead-Iron Sledge , Loxodon Warhammer , Vorrac Battlehorns are all excellent artifacts to really do some damage. I may have a few dead-iron sledges laying around if you would like them.

Well I might be missing something, but I feel that Arcbond is out of place here; I'm guessing it's to take advantage of Okaun's potentially high toughness & threat of commander damage but I don't see how it'll reliably be effective, especially with Silent Arbiter & Vorrac Battlehorns (as opposed to Chandra's Ignition which is pretty neat wincon).

Rite of Consumption DOME 'EM
Slagwurm Armor if you want Yargle to be a 9/9 for the memes
Something to consider might actually be mono-black control with Yargle as a finisher. Maybe I'm wrong and you could just outspeed people with Yargle's IMMENSE POWER but I think he's a bit too high cmc in colours that don't necessarily allow for much evasion/protection to just get in ASAP. Typical mono B control stuff looks like this:
Feel free to disagree tho, 2 swings and Yargle kills someone without any buffs in PDH which is pretty DANK. Just going all in on evasion could probably just do it in some metas. Fear & Intimidate are available in black plentifully to boot. Sleeper's Guile & Traitor's Clutch.
Happy brewing, looking forward to see what you make of it!

Nemesis Mask, Trailblazer's Boots, Whispersilk Cloak, Vorrac Battlehorns can all help control how much combat damage is making it to your opponents. Nemesis mask and vorrac battlehorns are minotaur themed!

Obviously Whispersilk Cloak is great. Fleetfeather Sandals and Strider Harness are both good for granting haste. Vorrac Battlehorns for trample. Sylvok Lifestaff is good in sac decks. Viridian Longbow if you have deathtouch. Neurok Stealthsuit in blue and Horned Helm in green.
