Argy Yes, i play FNM but only like 6 games, winning all 6. I played Saturday however and played against a 5 color cycling deck and one of my all-time favorite cards as a cycling player Faith of the Devoted It struggled a little bit, and almost won, but they snuck out a win.

This deck looks pretty smooth as is. One consideration might be Skirge Familiar for the combo with Necropotence and Tinybones. If you like that, you may also like Faith of the Devoted as an alternative mana sink wincon to Tinybones. Check out my list which is very similar to yours.

Immortal Servitude would work better than Rally since you get to keep your creatures for one extra mana. Vampiric Rites is also pretty good instead of Village Rites since you can keep using it instead of hoping to draw it. If you are playing casual instead of Modern, Bone Miser would make your deck pretty strong. Keep him in sideboard probably. Faith of the Devoted can make your deck ridiculously strong as well.

Hey mate i like the idea of your deck, is somewhat diferent from almost all tinybones decks around even my one build, Have you considered Faith of the Devoted since you can win right of the bat with skirge familiar in the big discards and also earn some life if needed, Wake the Dead is also a card that might be good for your build since you can reanimate the big daddy deamon and some more creatures to go crazy on tutor, Bitter Ordeal may do some work for you, and lastly did you ever consider Rankle, Master of Pranks ? keep the good work.

First of all, thanks a lot for the upvote and commenting! :D
About Glint-Horn Buccaneer, I don't know, maybe. Between Amonkhet and Ikoria it seems like there's a lot of payoffs for cycling, in fact, there's a Drannith Stinger in the list which has a similar effect, and cycles itself. A weird upside about the Stinger is that you can find it cycling Vedalken AEthermage, which is not only useful in some cases, but hilarious in all cases!
I can see cutting one of the enchantments, like Faith of the Devoted for this, although Faith gives you life. In general, I'd say that I'm not sure, which means I'll have to test for it. Thanks a lot for the suggestion! :D

Spell_Slam there's no such thing as too many Nehebs. Yeah I would like to add Neheb, the Eternal and Tahngarth, Talruum Hero to the deck when I can pick them up (they are not the cheapest foils out there). But that begs the question should I be running Aggravated Assault for the infinite combat potential with Neheb, the Eternal?
As far as cuts, I think I would want to cut Kragma Butcher and Pitiless Vizier as I feel like they are the weakest link in the deck. I would say some of the other discard Minotaur but I have a sort of self discard matters sub theme. I'm just hoping we get more cards like Faith of the Devoted and Glint-Horn Buccaneer down the road as well as better Minotaurs.
I saw Karplusan Minotaur when building the deck. He's really not for me. He feels too chaotic and I'm not a fan of letting opponents make decisions as most of the time I have found they are never in my favor. But that might be the cEDH player in me talking.
Citanul Flute in an interesting thought. I used to run it in cEDH Arcum Dagsson before the Paradox Engine banning, R.I.P. I'm not sure it works well here as there isn't a way to cheat it in and only tutors the Minotaurs to hand. Honestly I would rather run Diabolic Tutor if I felt I needed another tutor for the deck.
Thanks for taking a look at the deck and for the suggestions. I'm glad you like the concept, build, and the alters. The alters certainly took some time to do. But I think they were well worth the effort.
