And people say zombies can’t feel…
So while playing agame of commander a fellow players asked if a fun minotaur based commnder deck was possible…..cheaply
I simply said, “Challenge accepted”
so I was going to go black red with exava
and then i was going to go green black red with
but then i decided to just go mono red…i was getting to other color splashy and started to drift from our horned hooved friends. so i am going to go crazy here. and say red bull gives you alot of burning an itching instead.
so creatures you have less than normal which means we need lots of burn. also i included red spirts incarnations and avatars….cause they are the soul of what being a mino is all about
so 20 creatures in total.
now to supplement this we will need lot of board control and wipe. as well as methods to keep things from busting our domes. again i will be sticking with the minotaurs are always pissed type of vibe.
ALSO ADD SOME SORCERY!!!
now i would add a few more too but i don’t want to build the whole deck myself.
now for enchantments….we need to stick with the i’m a bull, im angry, i like that and this is my mountain so get off or else….
so thats a good start to the deck. probably too good! make sure you add plenty of burn.
if you don’t mind strying from the cloven path….try deathkeeper. he’s serious
I love everything about this card.
What I loved about Gruul in Rav prime was that the core set really supplemented it well. Also, the creatures all moved on a curve very nicely and played well with each other,
This card gives a bear sized body and 2 man besides. Gruul is going to be losing dudes hand over fist, don’t be suprised. Between suicidal charges and thier guild mechanic the grave is going to be full.
I will not be surprised to see U/R/G becoming a very popular aggro strategy. esp with this gal.
If they later reveal (though i seriously doubt it) that this is reprinted in Gatecrash…someone will need to come to my house to make sure i’m still breathing.
Malphite was the 3rd champ i ever bought. I bought his Glacial skin the day it came out. I really would love to play a EDH with LoL Legends.
I originally felt this card was over costed because of the comparable Thundermare.
But then i remembered thundermare taps every other creature.
I think absorb:1 would be good on him though. just to get that tankiness going.
No prob, first thing after these changes. i want you to play really aggressively with this deck.
If your creatures die, just play more.
-2 Burn at the stake
-1 Silver dagger
+3 Revenge of the Hunted
+2 Spider Spawning
That should cure all your problems. Flyers typically do not have a large butt so one well timed Revenge will net you a good trade, plus get a lot of your other teammates in.
I personally would trade the battle hymns for some type of card draw but didn’t want to over impose. I like the deck overall!
