Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion Discussion
1 week ago
Have you tried to Mono Red Selfmill Graveyard Voltron in the form of Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion? I know it has no flashy token commander damage, but in every other way it plays like you seem excited for. Might be a nice suggestion for an alternate commander if somehow people aren't comfortable with the Rule:0 plan.

This is great commander but I'm not sold it's ability to recur minotaurs just doesn't feel on theme for minotaurs. But your right minotuars are not a competitive tribe and I don't think they need to be, even if you go Jund or Mardu they're still not that competitive (Though green being green Jund is defiantly the most viable for competitive though I personally like going Mardu more).
That being said I feel that minotaurs in general are missing some major things and that a commander helping some of these would be good (For Rakdos colors).
Access to Trample, Haste and Menace: This is the most minor thing, but these are the 3 keywords that I think of when someone says Minotaurs, and come on these are huge beefcakes in the most literal sense. They should be able to stomp over most creature, I can't image a 1/1 bag of bones or hell a fully armored knight being able to stop a charging minotaur (at least not without a big ass shield and are a beefcake in their own right), and seeing a minotaur charging at is terrifying which is why Menace would work so well flavor wise, though I suppose Fear or Intimidate would work as well basically being the same thing as menace, in that it conveys the fear of seeing a wall of beef coming at you but since those two are mainly black keywords, and IK they mainly in color and that there a good chuck of mono black ones, but I get the feeling that black is the secondary color while red is the main, so menace is the more on color pie theme one and flavor theme.
Mana ramp: I now Rakdos isn't exactly a ramp color minus ritual effects but since there are few 3 drop minotuars no 1-2 drops with most being 4-7 (with 4-5 being the most common) drops you need more ramp, Neheb, the Eternal and Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion help in that regard but I think a few more can't go wrong. Maybe less focus on combat ramp, and more sacrificial ramp? IDK but we need a few more, though I don't feel like it should pure ramp (No just tap and get mana)
More tokens or better Creature: This goes with needing much explanation but with such a limited number of decent minotaurs either make new ones that are ok or better (70% are not good are only being used because the limited selection) or have more cards that make tokens, as of right now the two minotaur token makers are Sethron, Hurloon General and Flurry of Horns and Flurry is bad, yes it makes 2 tokens with haste and they are beefier tokens compared to most, but 5 mana for it is too much when I rather spend that mana on a minotaur that cost the same but is bigger and has more board presence.
Double Down on their tribe theme: For a while Minotaurs just kinda meandered around than the OG Theros came out and made them a highly aggressive mid-range tribe (they are some the most aggressive mid range decks I've seen.) and than Amonkhet continued this trend. Than Theros Beyond Death came other and split it into a sacrifice theme which I think fit the theros minotaurs because well even form older flavor texts they seen as more savage. But it split the tight focus and identity that the minotaurs had going but that is not a bad thing but we could meld them together to keep it more focused and tighter. Instead of out right sacrifice (though having some shamans in particular doing that is fine as TBD has established them) have instead deal with creatures dying in combat (so just dying in general, it's similar to sacrifice but not quiet the same) this would help it's already establish mid-range aggressive identity.
More Support: IK many tribes are lacking this (looking at you Phoenixes/Devils/Drakes/Weirds) but it doesn't stop this from being any less true. It has an ok creature base but they lack enchantments, instants sorceries and artifacts that are tailored to them. IK they are some like Didgeridoo but they are few and they need more.
Sorry about this rant i guess you could call it? But if you think of a commander that could deal with some of these than that would be awesome but again I DON'T THINK THIS IS A BAD COMMANDER!!!! And it certainly helps them.

Crucible of Fire, Obelisk of Urd,Vanquisher's Banner or Jugan, the Rising Star to buff your dragons and give you more card draw, Gruul War Chant or Goblin War Drums to give them even more evasion Purphoros, God of the Forge, Impact Tremors and Warstorm Surge for more ETB Burning, Balefire Dragon for massive field clearing potential (the bigger it get the damage it to the field) Moonveil Dragon for a field firebreathing effect, Dragon Broodmother for big tokens, while not dragons Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion and Neheb, the Eternal both ramp you very well, Ryusei, the Falling Star, Star of Extinction, Savage Twister, Starstorm and Blasphemous Act for board wipes. Red rituals like Pyretic Ritual, Seething Song, Mana Geyser or Battle Hymn quick mana and Braid of Fire for steady ever increasing mana. Can't go wrong with the Bird duo of Birds of Paradise and Gilded Goose for mana nor is Archetype of Endurance bad for protection Gratuitous Violence and Fiendish Duo are both one sided Furnace of Rath. Fervor or Fires of Yavimaya make dragons hasty, and Glorybringer and Combat Celebrant can be massive boon and if you Seedborn Muse you can alway have them untapped as exerted creatures only don't untapp during your phase but since seedborn untaps during opponents turns they also untap so you can get 4 free damage and an extra combat step ever turn. Savage Beating + Spellbinder can give free extra combat and if you use this combo the entwine also happens so you get both Savage Beating's effect's each time it goes off.

I'd be careful about having too much card draw that is reliant on your deck working. Having draw that just draws because it draws is often going to turn a game from not going well to being a little better.
Take a look at a similar but more established commander for ideas too Kardur, Doomscourge
And there might be better options here than what I listed as I was mostly looking through my madness deck for some things to fit your needs Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant
I generally recommend around 15 card advantage total but you can go significantly lighter when your commander draws.

I do this all the time. My Mina and Denn, Wildborn landfall was turned into Rhonas the Indomitable big mana, into Omnath, Locus of Mana big mana storm. My The Locust God wheels&draw deck, at least the red part, got absorbed into Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion . My boros equipment commander used to be Archangel Avacyn Flip, then went jeskai for a bit with Akiri, Line-Slinger / Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist , and then back to boros, with Akiri+ Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist . Athreos, God of Passage split up in Heliod, God of the Sun and Rankle, Master of Pranks . 5c Golos, Tireless Pilgrim enchantress went Klothys, God of Destiny enchantress, while the mana base is currently making its way to Najeela, the Blade-Blossom .
My decks are always in motion, and when I acquire new legendaries, I do like to fiddle around to see if my decks can get more interesting. Of course, it very much depends on the rest of the deck if I'd still consider it the same deck. Klothys enchantress is completely different from Golos enchantress, but the big mana green decks have always played similarly, making 100 mana and pumping a mana dork with Rhonas for lethal is fun, but if you can make 100 mana, your deck is just more suited to be mono G Omnath. Rhonas is still in the 99. When I made boros equipment, we hadn't started the surge of great boros equipment legends yet that we are enjoying now, naturally I found better choices over time for that.

Hey, here are some changes I might recommend while still staying on a budget. Fist, for a voltron deck I would probably drop the creature count a little bit as 29 is a little high. For this build I would probably eye something around 22-25. Also your land count is very low, I would bring that up to about 36 lands with several ways to search for lands, that will allow you to have plenty of mana and cast the bigger stuff in your deck.
Next, I would cut some cards that seeming underwhelming. Those are: Auriok Edgewright Auriok Bladewarden Fireblade Charger Leonin Relic-Warder , Evra, Halcyon Witness Shimmer Myr Spikeshot Elder , Wayfarer's Bauble ill talk about this one below, Leonin Bola Neglected Heirloom Flip Berserkers' Onslaught . So yeah once you know what to cut, it becomes very easy to make a bunch of additions.
Im not sure if you are married to the $50 budget, most of my suggestions here will be about $1 a piece but here's what I would add. First as mentioned we want better mana production, so you'll want Gift of Estates and Armillary Sphere over wayfarers bauble. In 700 games of commander, I've found that armillary sphere is just better than bauble for many reasons I wont go into right now. Fervent Champion , Sun Titan Kazuul's Toll Collector , 4 basic or flip lands, Flamekin Village Blackblade Reforged . Berserkers Onslaught can be a straight switch for True Conviction . Fleetfeather Sandals . Because your mana production is getting better, you can go just a little bigger on the top end of your deck. I might put 1 or 2 bigger equipments at the top end like Argentum Armor or maybe even a Scytheclaw . I would add Dismantling Wave and a Tome of Legends .
Here's some other very good cards on a budget that I might consider Forging the Tyrite Sword to cheap tutor, Ignite the Future excellent card draw Showdown of the Skalds also great card draw. Theres a whole package of cards you can use with Goblin Welder Goblin Engineer and Daretti, Scrap Savant and if you add those I would add a Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion . Because you have Toralf I might consider a few more red based board wipes like Chain Reaction or Magmaquake but i wouldnt say no to a Fumigate or a Rout either.
Anyway that should give you plenty to think about for now. Enjoy!

zaneanderman so the big issue with Godo, Bandit Warlord on this type of budget is explosivity. We are lacking extreme mana production in early turns meaning pushing out a a turn 2 or 3 win is very reliant on a Treasonous Ogre . We also lack adequate interaction at this budget. We have to have a backup plan which includes Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion and extra combat steps using his mana production and Underworld Breach to go infinite. It is a Godo backup when Godo gets to expensive. Twinflame with Dualcaster Mage is infinite hasty 2/2's.
