This deck started as the red/black Intro Pack from Journey into Nyx called "Voracious Rage," but I ended up transforming it into a full blown Minotaur deck. Any advice on how to improve this deck? Don't forget to up-vote if you really like the deck.

If you comment on this deck, please suggest cards. This helps me see what people think I should add to the deck. Also please only suggest red, black, black/red, lands, or artifacts. All other cards will be denied right away. Also, please note that this is a themed standard deck based around Minotaur creatures. Thank you and remember to KEEP ROCKING ON!

-=-=-KEY PLAYERS-=-=-

Rageblood Shaman - Gives my Minotaurs +1/+1 and trample.

Ragemonger - Makes my Minotaurs cost less.

Kragma Warcaller - Gives my Minotaurs haste and +2/+0 when attacking.

Felhide Petrifier - Not as big of a player, but gives my Minotaurs deathtouch which could may my opponent not want to attack or block.

Mogis, God of Slaughter - My god for the deck, which has two effects: helps keep the field clear or helps weaken my opponent.

Hero's Downfall - Kills off Planeswalkers and creatures alike.

-=-=-SIDE DECK-=-=-

Bile Blight - Deals with tokens.

Drown in Sorrow - Deals with swarm and weak creature decks.

Stab Wound - Deals with strong creatures while causing my opponent to lose life.

Felhide Spiritbinder - Makes clones of my Minotaurs so that I can hit for more damage.

Erebos, God of the Dead - A backup god that stops my opponents from gaining life, while being able to gain life.

Whip of Erebos - Gives me lifelink and allows my Minotaurs to come back for one final attack.




So it's been a while since I posted anything remotely about my deck. Mogis' band still plays. His band never did make it to the big leagues thought (never took him to a standard tourny). I have begun tweeking it a bit to maybe take him to a Modern or Legacy tourny. I don't know yet.

Thinking of adding a play set of Lightning Bolts, along with two more Lord of Shatterskull Pass. I also want to tweek the sideboard a bit more to help combat token and life gain decks. Any advice there would be helpful. The mana base I will also be tweeking once I take apart my old Anarchy 18 deck.

In all seriousness I wonder if Stab Wound isn't the best card for an aggro deck. They will block with the creature to get rid of the effect ASAP.

Speaking of blocking Blinding Flare is standard legal (Ha Ha) and so is Mogis's Marauder (He still fits the theme due to his name and awesome hat.)

cragma warcaller is too slow

with 4x Ragemonger, Kragma Warcaller isnt that slow. and if your opponent doesnt deal with it immediately then they are in for a lot of pain.

You might want to consider Gnarled Scarhide for early board presence. Plus they are free if you have a Ragemonger out.

I also run minotaurs. My deck is pretty similar Tribal Minotaurs I would suggest Gnarled Scarhide.

Whoops, that's not my deck. Also, dreadbore is not legal.

I would lose the Kragma Butchers for the Gnarled Scarhides

@doriboncore: I think you're underestimating the Butchers' Inspired ability. With Warcaller out, that's 6 power the turn after you attack with the Butcher.

Gnarled Scarhide is great though, so I'd replace 1 Butcher and 1 Deathbellow Raider with 2 Gnarled Scarhides.

You could also take a look at Lord of Shatterskull Pass. He's amazing mid-game. With Ragemonger, put him down for 3, then turn after level him up for 2 to a 6/6. That's basically a 6/6 for 5 mana who will also be buffed by Warcaller. Plus if you find that you have nothing left to cast, you can keep leveling him for his ultimate, which'll pretty much wipe most opponents' creatures out.

mr. shaterskull is not standard legal.

What about Palace Siege. It's better than stab wound and gives you health or your minotaurs/mogis each round.

Here's my old Standard Minotaur deck . Ignore the Return to Ravnica cards. Your deck is almost the same as mine. +1 from me for minotaurs. I'm thinking of redoing into an Orc (maybe Orc/goblin deck) soon. There Is No Cow Level. I would suggest maybe mainboarding or sideboarding an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. I know you have more red mana symbols than black, but doesn't hurt to have it just in case. I would sideboard it for playing against decks that don't run black mana. You don't want to give the other player the mana they need when they need it.

Loooove da minotaurs!! Great deck!

Thanks. It was originally the Red/Black Intro Pack from Journey into Nyx called "Voracious Rage." That deck had most of the minotaurs in it that I needed to build this. The rest I got through my Job Corps buddies through trades or they just gave them too me. It runs really well.

My only disappointment is that I never got to use it in any standard play. I had plans on going to a local card shop to use it in FMN, but never made it. Now I am converting it into a Modern deck, hoping that it will see some play. Doubt I'll come out on top, but top five would not be bad.

That's why I don't do standard. Ya make an awesome deck just to have to make another lol. It's looks super fun though!

I like this a lot :)
How about Neheb, the Worthy?

ThePuolimieli: Once I come back to this deck, I will be upgrading it with 2 copies of Neheb. I will sadly be taking Mogis out for him. Right now I am working on my Gishath Commander deck.
