Minotaur Tribal

  • #1
    Minotaurs are probably my favorite creature type, but historically they have been pretty lackluster.

    I previously tried creating a R/W/U Minotaur tribal deck with Zedruu at the helm, but it just isn't my style to sit back and be passive.

    The release of Theros brought us some pretty good Minotaurs in the form of:



    I own a copy of every single Minotaur printed, but I keep struggling with coming up with a decent tribal deck.

    It appears that Wizards is now trying to push Minotaurs into R/B. Think they will keep up the trend? That said, I wanted to try making either a R/B or R/B/W Minotaur deck.

    White doesn't really add much to Minotaurs exception Boros Reckoner and the utility that comes with White. I fear that if I add White, the deck just won't be as aggressive as I envision fanatic bovines to be.

    Right now I am strongly leaning towards R/B in the hopes Wizards will throw us cow lovers a bone with a decent legendary Minotaur in R/B in Theros block.

    Of the possible R/B commands, I think Rakdos, Lord of Riots makes for a pretty good herd leader.

    A lot of Minotaurs are overcosted, plain creatures, so the possibility of reducing their costs a little is appealing.

    I envision the Minotaurs (of Theros at least) an all-or-nothing tribe, where they kick ass and ask questions later.

    Has anyone else toyed with the idea of Minotaurs? Would love to hear your suggestions!

    For pure flavour reasons, you should run Mystifying Maze and/or the like. That's all I've got!

    I'm excited for the idea of Minotaur tribal, but I think we'll have to wait for the rest of the Theros block to get a real and competitive minotaur tribal deck

    better pre-order you Didgeridoos though

    I like the idea of waiting...because there's no way they'll pass up a Minotaur legend in this legend block after no werewolf one in INN block.
    Mirri, Cat Warrior counts as a Cat Warrior.

    I already own a few from back when I tried to collect playsets of all Minotaur-related cards for a casual constructed deck Smile

    I think a mono red EDH minotaur deck would be awesome.

    You should try out five colour tribal. Minotaurs are in all 5 colours, so you get to play all of the sweet one's. I've been testing with Horde of Notions, featuring a minor Elemental theme for support. It has been a lot of fun, actually. You also get to play the 3 Mazes for flavour reasons.
