So, Ixilan has been fully spoiled now. What are your thoughts? Will it improve this deck?

We get the new Land and we also get Unclaimed Territory, so in some ways the mana may be improved.
We don't need any longer as Grasp of Darkness is gone.
In its place Lightning Strike will come into play. It kills less Creatures, but gives an easy win if the Opponent is on 3 or less life.
This deck may very well end up stronger.
I will do some testing before I make a firm decision about that.

Have you managed to do some testing? Do you think that this deck will fare against Pirates and Dinosaurs?

The deck does very well against Pirates. Dinos are a bit more challenging for it, but it can outrace them.
I think Carnage Tyrant may see play early on in the Season ... until everyone starts siding against it.
It's such a Timmy card that I don't think I'll see a lot of it in my local meta, but I could be wrong.

Have you thought about running these?Vanquisher's Banner You could replace two metallic mimics which would save roughly 20$ and would have the same effect for an artifact drop, but you would lose access to two creatures.

GoddessGrape I have already built this deck and have been playing it for two seasons, so I don't need to save any money as far as putting it together.
I'd rather play Neheb, the Eternal on Turn 5.
Thanks for the thought, anyway.

Wouldn't work against the Cat deck in my local meta that spits out Tokens at a great rate of knots.

Yea that's understandable maybe something for sideboard then. Everything else looks great though!

Have you ever thought about running 1 copy of Scorpion God?

I do not wish to change the land base to turn this into a tri-coloured deck.
I know where you're heading, as I could get my Minotaurs back from the Graveyard, but I'd need consistent access to in order to do so.
I've also never been a fan of one copy of a card in any of my decks, unless it is similar to another card, and is therefore supplying me with a "fifth" copy.

He's not talking about The Scarab God. Regardless the one of still nulls the whole point.

This is why it's always best to not be lazy, and link the card:
I do actually have one of that card. I cracked it during Hour of Devastation.
I might do some playtesting to see what impact it would have.

So I don't know if this is relevant to your decisions or not but I started with this deck in mind and then tweaked the crap out of it (mostly due to the cards I had on hand) and it turned into a double tribal Zombie Minotaur deck with the intention of providing buffs to Neheb, the Eternal and Cursed Minotaur.
The end result looked nothing like your deck obviously but I just wanted to mention how well The Scorpion God played for me. I don't know your meta but mine was pretty fast at standard showdown this week. I played against Ramunap Red (which blew me out) A black white token and a Naya Dinos deck.
Scorpy was a wonderful play and finisher. Even without focusing on -1/-1 counters his ability was taking out 1 or 2 creatures a turn against these decks that like to run fast creatures and such. In the process he was drawing me mid game fuel that I otherwise would have been topdecking at that point. He's obviously less effective against creatureless or near creatureless control decks but he's easily sided out. I was also able to get him on the board the turn following a Neheb, the Eternal once and the extra mana from neheb ended up helping me wipe her board post combat :)
Scorpy doesn't fit everywhere but he is great mid/late game fuel against decks running weenies. Something you can't get a lot of in rakdos colors.

Legendary_penguin_of_death you are a genius!
I forgot all about it. It's just what I need to get rid of Glorybringer.
You are spot on that it allows Neheb, the Eternal to spend all his extra
Thanks for the excellent suggestion.

Thanks! Glad you liked the suggestion!

I took out a copy of neheb the eternnal and throne of the god pharoh and instead put two hazoret the fervent. It seems to work really well. I like the whole idea of cut to ribbons what would I substitute that for? Also instead of removing a throne of the god pharoh I could remove another neheb the eternal. To me hazoret might be the better fit even though it's a minatour deck. What is your take?
December 8, 2017 9:44 p.m.
My take is, if that works for you, then good onya.
