R/B Minotaurs

Description

I am looking for constructed criticism on my deck and side board advice. Only been playing magic since 2014 pre-release have attended maybe 6 FNM events and won my first FNM last Friday! Anything helps! Thanks!

I'd say drop the Ragemonger and the Warcaller, since you don't have enough black-based Minotaurs in there to warrant them. It's easier to go mono-red this way. Replace them with some Firedrinker Satyr - cheap 1 drops to get that mana curve lower. If you're going to take full advantage of the Oracles, you need more expensive spells (something like Fated Conflagration ) or to replace a few of the Oracles with some Felhide Spiritbinder to provide an effective en masse attack that your opponent won't have many rejoinders to. To that end, I'd also say you'd want some Springleaf Drum to tap your Spiritbinders safely, or some Madcap Skills to ensure that they will be blocked with less frequency to ensure Inspired triggers properly. If you want to see a design along the lines of what I've suggested here, go check out Jabawock29 deck, Miffed Minotaurs.

I would disregard previous advice saying to drop the Ragemonger and Warcaller. Those are the backbones of your deck. If anything add spot removal for trouble creatures and walkers. Oracle of bones will become much more valuable with straight removal spells instead of burn spells. Minotaurs are aggro enough to not need any burn outside of magma jet.
