Tahngarth, First Mate

Legendary Creature — Minotaur Warrior

Tahngarth, First Mate can't be blocked by more than one creature.

Whenever an opponent attacks with one or more creatures, if Tahngarth is tapped, you may have that opponent gain control of Tahngarth until end of combat. if you do, choose a player or planeswalker that opponent is attacking. Tahngarth is attacking that player or planeswalker.

You forgot to make a "goaded with the sauce" joke! 8c

Butt serially, seems fun. Also seems like you should have more Fog effects and should consider Predatory Hunger, Thundering Mightmare, Dragonlair Spider, Emberwilde Captain, and maybe Tahngarth, First Mate for shits n giggles.

Not really a break, but I feel that green getting artifact animation is an unnecessary bleeding of a blue mechanic.

Battlefield Butcher: Doesn't feel like the flavor text matches this guy's 1 power.

Fortfied Beached: Again, feels weird to solidify blue as color for Soldier tribal.

Audacity: I get the Rancor reference but I much more associate audacity with bold red rather than steady green.

Awaken the Woods: Hah.

I've had fun building and goldfishing a Slicer, Hired Muscle deck, check it out: Slicer gets around. Basically a more focused Tahngarth, First Mate, I hope he doesn't get too expensive.

Curious how Silent Arbiter works with Tahngarth, First Mate and if that would incentivize other people to use him more or just piss off the table. Unsure if he prevents the ability or let’s other players use Tahngarth as a second attacker. Food for thought anyway. Glad the manotaur is getting some love!!!

Amazing deck! I did not realise there was someone before me with this idea, and I love how your deck is looking. Cards to consider for your Maybeboard: Acorn Catapult, Death by Dragons, Elephant Resurgence, Kamahl's Summons, Plague of Vermin, Tempt with Vengeance, Artifact Mutation, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Curse of Disturbance, Liege of the Hollows, Sawtusk Demolisher, Akroan Horse, Hungry Lynx, Life of the Party, Sleeper Agent, Tahngarth, First Mate and lets not forget the "Hunted" cycle with Hunted Horror, Hunted Dragon and Hunted Troll

I'm happy that somewhere out there (R&D), they have someone trying to push the viability of newer strategies, & strategies that focus on the multiplayer aspect of this format. I think this same person/team is taking new, creative archetype failures into consideration & finding ways to improve on those failures.

SUBJECTIVE IMO Examples of this: Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant=success, can go toe-to-toe with some more solo fishbowl decks out there. Kardur, Doomscourge=success + budget + frequently keeps up with the more fishbowl strategies. Marisi, Breaker of the Coil=success + somewhat of a pioneer in his field. Kaima, the Fractured Calm=failure - too much design flaw - no ward - massive buildaround - couldn't give him an activated ability to destroy ench? or some spice Tahngarth, First Mate=failure - Creative yes, no oomph to play an impactful game against control, fishbowl, & non-combat meta

Even though I feel some of the failures are a bit tonedeaf when you see some of the other beasts being put out in more established archetypes - it always seems like someone in R&D takes note & circles around to try to address those failings. Goad keeps getting ways around haste, I feel that eventually creature gifting will receive a commander that has a built in workaround for the: "opponent sacs my gift" issue

I don't think any card loves combat more the Tahngarth, First Mate.

Sorry to ask, but how the Berserk + Tahngarth, First Mate combo work? I can't understand why the creature wouldn't be destroyed. Is it because it is already tapped and attacking without you declare it as an attacker? Do you know where I can find the ruling for this? I'm a bit confused lol
