• What!

    Really should have specced those digeridoos…

  • Brian Schmidt

    Dude only costs 1 colorless if you have Ragemonger from Theros block on the battlefield. Wouldn’t be a bad thing to only have to pay colorless if he is your Commander.

  • Kahai

    Sexy. BR is one of my favorite pairs! :D

    I was also wrong, we did get more legendary colored pairs. :D

  • Kameenook

    ERmagerd more minotaurs ! I will want to add some of these to my minotaur deck !

    Pair with Felhide Petrifier for fun

  • Insight66

    Have you seen Neheb? He’s so worthy right now.

  • Kaiser

    oh my god 2 lord abs and he also have first strike?

  • MTGFanatic

    I didn’t expect that there’s a Minotaur tribal in this set. O_o

    • Kaiser

      and probably not going to happen, this was created mainly for EDH so don’t expect to minotaur tribal being a thing in standard.

      • ymmij X

        But what if the story takes us back to theros while this is in standard? Minotaur tribes shall rise!

        • Kaiser

          Well the people of the commander zone get information that there is more minotaur relevant cards for being spoiled when they spoiled this one. Soo i dont thing that this suggest that we are going back to theros but could be for ajani. If more like a card with limited design space but it has synergies atleast

        • Aurore

          This basically screams Ajani bringing the Gatewatch to Theros to rescue Elspeth.

  • Edwin Marín Castro

    Nice lord, but where is my Viashino lord? Not fair Wizards, not fair.

    • Tezzybros

      No Nagas for me, I want some more viashino pls.

    WOTC, 2006: “We need more mechanics for red and black! What can we do that’s original and unique to RB?”
    WOTC, 2006: “Hellbent! Got it! It’s perfect, we’ll use it in this set and think of more RB mechanics later!”
    WOTC, 2007: “…”
    WOTC, 2008: “…”
    WOTC, 2009: “…”
    WOTC, 2010: “…”
    WOTC, 2011: “…”

    • Happy The Cat

      wotc 2017: “guys we haven’t given rb a thing since hellbent and that one where they could decide their creatures couldn’t block, any Ideas?”
      “give them good burn but with downsides like hurting yourself!”
      “remake helbent but for one or less cards and not as a keyword so it isn’t planelocked!”
      “Charles, your fired. Dave, you can Have Charles’s old office, congrats on the promotion.”

  • Tezzybros

    Minotaurs gets +2 +0, first strike. Now deathtouch, +2 + 0 and haste, +1 +1 and trample, and cost RB less to play.

    Minotaurs back in homelands was garbage. Minotaurs was like Gordon’s back in the day, before theros.
    Now it’s one of the best tribals for an aggro outlook (sorry boggarts). Must have for Minotaur tribe, not so good in sealed for the prelease.

    • Gord

      Homelands had didgeridoo

    • Aurore

      Don’t mock Gordon tribal. That guy is a beast.

  • KrakenHunter

    not bad at all

  • Aurore

    >Looks at number of Minotaurs in standard
    Works in theory, anyway.

  • Zume

    There is an god

    • Robert FakeLastName


  • Dr. Burn Crow

    Well this is weird.

    • Kaiser

      you like weird things, why not weird minothings?

      • Happy The Cat

        well, there’s weird, then there is cards that are lords for an aggro only deck with an anthem effect that’s weird.

      • Dr. Burn Crow

        I just don’t know how to feel about this. I want to like it, but I’m always scared of niche lords.

  • Happy The Cat

    straight to Commander, where he’ll lead a one dimensional rb aggro deck.
    also shout out to Flame Javelin in the art, another great burn card they could have reprinted but didn’t.

    • Kaiser

      Did i told you that i love how you recorded all the burn spell cards references?

      • Happy The Cat

        I mean I’ve got to look for good burn somewhere, even if it’s printed in a card’s art, and not as a spell in the set.

        • Kaiser

          oh my gosh xD +9999 for that

  • atl134

    Obviously plays well with the red god. Whether there’s enough to go around that remains to be seen.

  • Alexandre Donnart

    Well, another sweet card for a Modern Tribal deck. And guess what, I actually have a Minotaur deck !

  • Kumrag

    As we all know minotaur tribal is what magic really needs

  • Ryū

    With this prime slab of beef, the battle cattle will sear your buns and cook your goose.

  • name moniker

    disappointing. It needs more cowbell.

  • Shagoth

    Minotaur Tribal
    And it’s not white, which means the best one (boos reckoner) won’t be in the EDH deck. Sadness.

  • Necrachilles

    EDH Meanotaurs

    • Serj

      With Mogis as commander

      • Nanya

        Mogis isn’t a good commander for the Minotaurs.

        • Necrachilles

          He’s not bad, fits flavorwise. This guy is just way better. +2/+0 and first strike. Mogis would def go in the deck though

          • Nanya

            Indeed. That’s what I was saying to my roommate. The Theros Gods just aren’t good as Commanders. But as utility cards in the deck, they are amazing.

            Xenogod + Atarka World Render = Game

          • Necrachilles

            Yeah but some are great commanders: Kruphix, Erebos, Karametra, Purphoros

            Good (if not great) Commanders: Phenax, Thassa, Xenagos

            Honorable Mention: Ephara, Iroas, Keranos,

            So 10/15 are viable which is pretty good

            At the end of the day, an indestructible enchantment is still REALLY good. Especially one that just comes back.

          • Nanya

            Yeah, I forgot that I’ve seen good decks with Kruphix, Keranos, Thassa and Purphoros as commanders before.

            In fact, used to run a Kruphix deck, but the deck sucked as it was one of the first non-theme decks I ever built and it wasn’t that good.

  • Necrachilles

    Also EDH: What the werewolf legend coulda been :(

  • Jacob Trust

    AWEEEEE… This hits so close to home as someone who came into standard in Theros block with a minotaur tribal as their first ever comp deck… :)

  • MrAptronym

    Glad to see more minotaur support. I feel like this probably delivers what its intended audience desires.

  • Julna Buras

    So is there going to be a legendary for each guild/two-color combination?

    • Aarhg

      That would be the dream. More potential commanders is great news.

  • Avery Standley

    Mardu Minotaurs anyone?

    • Zombie

      Screw that, CoCo Cows

      • Happy The Cat

        chocolate milk?

      • NC

        Shame Frontier doesn’t go back to Theros.

        • Zombie

          Shame Frontier is a dead format

          • NC

            That too.

          • Zombie

            Frontier is just a worse fan-made Extended that got crippled by Mm2017 and Modern being more fun than “Everyone Goes Back to Playing JVP and Siege Rhino: The Format”.

  • Rovkir Hexus

    RB Minotaur Madness anyone?

  • Simeon Tsanev

    Minotaurs in an Egyptian setting? That’s a Flavor Fail

    • Chaospyke

      I mean not really? yes minotaurs are native to greek culture, but Wotc did a decent job making them believable on this plane, with the ram heads and all.

    • Gareth Martin

      It’s more to do with the animal head. Naga aren’t Egyptian either. Nor is this Egypt. It’s actually a plane called Amonkhet located in a make believe universe.

  • Winter Trabex

    Would be nice if they would print other Minotaurs in standard to make this guy playable.

  • Chaospyke

    Please Please Please reprint the the theros minotaur lords.
    I started in Khans and didn’t get a chance to play with that tribe.

  • Larz Eric Paulsen

    Hey this would be great for commander! Oh wait all the best minotaurs are red/white.
    And the majority of them are too expensive and unplayable. Great just kill me now.

  • Edward

    I am definitely going to build this for commander. It is a great way to utilize all of the Hellbent support as well as tribal support(both general and Minotaur specific). Olivia Mobilized For War seems great in this deck too

  • ConDucktor Whirl Crate God

    :D I can finally make a Minotaur commander!!!

    • Nanya

      My thoughts exactly!

      I even have an Alpha Edition Hurloon Minotaur! :D

      • Andy Harris

        Don’t forget the Digeridoo!

        • Nanya

          Didn’t have it before. Gunna get one soon.


      yes… Tahngarth was mono red…

  • Zombie

    You can potentially play this dude and have all of his abilities online by T1 in Modern I think. It involves Ragemonger and math and I’m too tired for that right now.

    But then you just lose to Lightning Bolt because you dumped your hand for a T1 4/2.


  • Aubrey Clements

    hey finally a reason to play black red

  • Springfluter

    Immediately wrote a list on tappedout, think this dude can become pretty nasty…! Love him.

  • Aubrey Clements

    should I pre-order

  • Mip

    could this be ok on its own
