This seems like a really cool deck, looking forward to actually playing it

How did this deck stack up against some of the more well known ones? Would love the reply

Ive been play testing are decks together, they both play really well together

sagartomar99: I haven't really had a chance to play test too too much sadly. However, I have a friend that plays a competitive Energy-Constrictor deck, and this wins 50% of the time. It doesn't match up so well though against control. Hope this helps!

So @Bano42 I actually did some deck testing for the past 2-3 hours and it was quite decent tbh. I faced an Eldrazi deck and went 2-1. Against a control matchup its a little tough but once you can get past all those counters you can really get going. Against W/U monument which is arguably one of the best decks rn, the Tribal deck performed fairly well. I would say the only problem is if you have somehow get both Nehebs in your hand. I think if some how you can add a burn spell that targets the player directly this deck would be sweet. I also Fling is a card that can legit be a gamechanger. I would try putting it in sideboard first.

Thank you for not only taking the time to help play test my deck for me, but for also letting me know how it worked! Really appreciate it!
I really want to love Fling. I bought a playset when I saw it come out way back in March. It's a really great way to make a creature useful if is about to be sent to the graveyard for whatever reason. I'm just not sure where it would go tho, right? If you find success with it, pls comment what you did!

Ya np! I would put fling in the sideboard for 3x Lay Bare the Heart. That way you can have 3 doomfalls and 1 lay bare the heart incase you need one more removal. That would let you have 3x fling in yor sideboard.

I am going to try this at FNM this week. I will let ya know how it goes for me.

Well, I went 2-2 tonight with the deck.
First match was 2-0 vs. GW cats deck.
Second was 0-2 vs. Drake Haven deck.Third was 0-2 vs. GB counters.Fourth was 2-0 vs. BW zombies.
When the deck was working well, it went really well. Getting mana screwed hurt in my losses. Highlight of the night was swinging 5 with Neheb, the Eternal while Key to the City paved the path, and then after combat using Cut / Ribbons for 9 more damage.

I too went 2-2 with this deck tonight at FNM. I lost hard to control, and u/r flier-vision is no bueno for this style of deck. I have a few changes overall than what's here, main boarding Abrade is very key in meta with so many Gearhulks 'a lurkin', I also played a lot more dual lands than you do, because I have them, and it sped my game up a lot more. One guy I beat turn 5? I think. I also play 2 Hazoret the Fervent as she is absolutely bonkers in this.
Only thing I can think of that would help is the 1 drop that gives all creatures trample, because when you're up against tokens, and they can just chump for days, you need a way through.
Going to fiddle with the removal a bit more, but overall, is a very good shell of a deck, easy for customization.

Were there cards that you found just weren't working in the deck? Or conversely, stuff you found out you loved?
July 22, 2017 7:27 a.m.
All the minotaurs worked very well together, especially with Neheb, the Worthy on the field. He was always the focal point to get removed. Giving everything first strike is really good. When I was able to use the removal spells in the beginning of the game, and not let my opponent set up--things went a lot smoother.

Do you think there'd be a slot in the deck for Grisly Survivor? I really like him and want to try to find room.
July 22, 2017 8:41 a.m.
The number one rule is to try it. Grisly Survivor could be an all star. I am 100% of the belief that if you are having fun you have already won. I have went to fnm and lost all night and felt like a winner because I had fun playing. If you want to run Grisly Survivor do so. I love the keyrunes from return to ravnica block. I made a rainbow deck around them. It does better than you can imagine in multiplayer, but sucks 1v1. I took it to fnm a few times and lost terribly, but had a ton of fun playing it. The point I am not making effectively is that if you enjoy a card, play it and have fun. Winning and losing are irrelevant if you arent having fun. I suggest Collective Brutality and Tormenting Voice if you do run it.
July 22, 2017 9:25 a.m.
I will try it out, I was just asking his opinion bc he ran the deck last night!
July 22, 2017 9:33 a.m.
Did you consider Merciless Javelineer for this deck?
What about Scorpion God? I know he's off type not being a Minotaur but he's sexy in red black decks.
July 22, 2017 10:59 a.m.
Tag your cards! But yes, I considered Merciless Javelineer. I just think there are better options.
July 22, 2017 11:56 a.m.
Sorry I'm new I made the account just to comment on your deck. I just got the last cards I needed to make it. How do you tag for future reference?
July 22, 2017 noon
No need to apologize, it just helps other people reading your comment to understand what's going on. Do the commenting tutorial, it really helps if you're unsure of stuff :)
I really like Merciless Javelineer tbh. There's just no room in this deck for him.

Unfortunately hexproof is outside of these colours, but I was also thinking of splashing green for Samut, Voice of Dissent, I know she's not a Minotaur, but her haste in invaluable in this style of aggro deck. TBH, my "loved" cards were Ahn-Crop Crasher who, by turn 3 with Haste would nearly ALWAYS put in work. I may also add Earthshaker Khenra as that would provide me with a very function turn 1-2-3 damage dealing swing.
I also have added in Bomat Courier to help keep the fire on, and it's ability is actually very good with minotaurs going hellbet as you can flush your hand, do damage, then sac the courier for some more fire.
Just a couple additions, I played it again on Saturday for our Standard Showdown, and got throttle unfortunately, but I've made a few more meta changes, and think it'll probably play a bit more consistently. Also Abrade killed so many gearhulks... man, if that card could talk.
July 23, 2017 7:55 p.m.
I've been thinking about tinkering with some Claim / Fame as a Haste-mechanic as well, which is also nice with the twelve 2-drops in this deck.

I have been messing around with Supernatural Stamina a bit. I'm not sure if I should put it in the sideboard for going against more targeted removal spells, or just leave it in the main deck.
July 25, 2017 5:07 p.m.
Sorry for the late response, life's kept me busy lately.
Supernatural Stamina works very well. It's a neat little combat trick and can really save your guys. I like the card a lot.

This deck looks like so much fun to play! How has it been playing?
