Battle the Horde Challenge Deck contents discovered

Born of the Gods Game Day is this coming weekend, so it pays to be prepared for what the latest challenge deck has in store. This time, it's not a stationary Hydra, but an active, attacking Horde, that plays like a regular Magic deck. MTGSalvation.com Rumor Mill user honqui has the full decklist for Battle the Horde up:

We know who he voted for in 2000.
Minotaur Goreseeker

Info!
First, 15 Different cards
Artifacts included for the 1st time (see below!)
Theros' Hero cards can be used along with the BNG ones (the limit for 3 Hero cards remains)
The Horde has no life. Instead, for each 1 damage you put one card from the Horde's deck into the graveyard.
You win when the Horde has no cards left in the deck + it has no creatures on the battlefield

10 Minotaur Goreseeker
15 Minotaur Younghorn
4 Mogis's Chosen
10 Phoberos Reaver
4 Reckless Minotaur
2 Consuming Rage
2 Descend on the Prey
2 Intervention of Keranos
2 Touch of the Horned God
2 Unquenchable Fury
1 Altar of Mogis
1 Massacre Totem
2 Plundered Statue
2 Refreshing Elixir
1 Vitality Salve

Elite creatures have been swapped out for regular, attack-happy Minotaurs. Rather than attacking Heads this time, you're going to be depleting a deck's contents which also function like its life total. The Hero's Reward cards this time around are the artifacts, which all allow the Horde to play an extra card every turn when they're out but have different rewards attached to disposing of them.
