Pitiless Vizier

Pitiless Vizier

Creature — Minotaur Cleric

Whenever you cycle or discard a card, Pitiless Vizier gains indestructible until end of turn. (Damage and effects that say "destroy" don't destroy it. If its toughness is 0 or less, it's still put into its owner's graveyard.)

Wirex on Minotaur Loots in Pauper!

This looks like a ton of fun! Pitiless Vizier seems to be on theme and could be a nice indestructible beater. Maybe as a two of? Definitely would build this to add to the pauper library.

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.

apart from Demon of Wailing Agonies and Vault of Whispers this deck could be modern legal.

you got to many high costed cards that do nothing, don't have synergy or are straight up trash.

you dont have to read all of this... its a lot. eg: Fen Hauler (you have almost no artifacts) and you could replace it for Gurmag Angler , Steel Wall , Prakhata Club Security , Prizefighter Construct can be chump blocked and dies to anything, Pitiless Vizier how do you discard or cicle cards?, Sengir Vampire high cmc, Phage the Untouchable the same but its actually a neat card that you could make some jank deck (thanks for the idea), Nightmare trash, Night Market Guard trash too, Extractor Demon to high costed unless you have a way to trow it on the gy, Dread Defiler the same and does nothing really, Bloodhunter Bat trash, Demon of Wailing Agonies you dont have a commander, Haunted Plate Mail to high costed and you got too many creatures to even use it, Staff of the Death Magus not usefull, Cinder Barrens and Forsaken Sanctuary whats the point??.

uff dude, from what im looking its a deck you made from with the cards you had lying around, so you want to first have an idea of the game plan you wanna go to, a discard base control or aggro or reanimator and so on. or see what card you would want to work with and make the deck around it, when you do i can help you build the deck. just make a comment or hit me up idk.

Oh, and legendofa? Pitiless Vizier is a minotaur too. Also, he works with the Flamewake Phoenix.

Love your Pauper Battle Box! Maybe you could use some more payoffs for cycling cards like Grisly Survivor Horror of the Broken Lands Pitiless Vizier

I have a very successfull minotaur build that doesn't use the Pitiless Vizier but full playsets of Neheb, the Worthy, Bloodrage Brawler and Metallic Mimic. I would also suggest using Supernatural Stamina to protect your core creatures and overcome heavy blockers with the additional buff combined with first strike. I also like to run three to four copies of Key to the City because of the additional evasion, which is difficult to aquire in a Minotaur deck. Finally, I also use three Cut / Ribbons to include an X spell for Neheb, the Eternal, of which I play two.And, if you don't mind paying a bit more for your deck, you could also run two Hazoret the Fervent for better discard synergy and of course a few Chandra, Torch of Defiance.

I disagree with the above comment that you "need" a playset of Fatal Push. Sure it's a strong card with the correct build but it is absolutely not worth it for you to jam in $30+ worth of Pushes just because they're a solid card. With your only way to trigger revolt being a singleton Fling the power of Fatal Push drops off hard. Unlicensed Disintegration is an excellent removal spell and the only thing I'd replace it for is the Walk the Planks that you have in the maybeboard already. I do agree with the dropping of Magma Spray, you really need the ability to hit face whenever you can so going up on Shock and some other creatures seems better (keep somes sprays in the sideboard if you play against graveyard decks). Last thing about the removal, I definitely wouldn't mainboard Hour of Devastation, Sweltering Suns, or Lost Legacy. Hour and Suns are the kind of card you never want your opponent to cast on you so why cast it on yourself for them? I would sideboard all 3 of those cards to bring in against decks that you absolutely need a boardwipe against like zombies.

For the creatures, as stated previously there are a lot stronger minotaurs in the Theros block so making the jump to modern could make the deck a lot stronger. But for Standard I think your best thing to add in is more of each Neheb (maybe a 3-2 split of Worthy-Eternal), another Bloodrage Brawler, and Grisly Survivor. I suggest dropping Pitiless Vizier, Tilonalli's Skinshifter and Wildfire Eternal completely. Adding in a couple copies of Tormenting Voice can help you hit the discard triggers you need and also dig through your deck.

Based off the previous comments this use to be a different deck lol. But! As for Minotaur, Metallic Mimic would be amazing here naturally. Having more Neheb would be a good thing also. Either one I think you should have at least 3 of each. Id switch them for Tilonalli's Skinshifter, Pitiless Vizier and Wildfire Eternal. Naturally Fatal Push or Walk the Plank.
