Ragemonger is a powerful new "Born of the Gods" spoiler revealed today Jan 15, 2014 in an article by Frank Lepore on TCGPlayer.com. This uncommon Rakdos Minotaur Shaman significantly reduces that casting cost of the Minotaur spells in your deck, making the tribe's existing and forthcoming cards much faster to play and possibly a competitive force to reckon with.
Ragemonger - 1BR
Creature - Minotaur Shaman (Uncommon)
Minotaur spells you cast cost BR less to cast. This effect reduces only the amount of colored mana you pay. (For example, if you cast a Minotaur spell with a mana cost of 2R, it costs 2 to cast.)
Lepore points out that Ragemonger allows you to drop both Boros Reckoner and Rageblood Shaman on turn four. From there Kragma Warcaller will transform your army into a devastating nightmare for your opponent. Because Ragemonger allows you to quickly swarm your side of the battlefield with permanents, your Fanatic of Mogis will be able to deal more damage earlier than normal.
With Springleaf Drum, you'll be able to power out even quicker with Ragemonger and gain access to white Minotaurs from the "Return to Ravnica" block such as Blaze Commando, Boros Battleshaper, and Ordruun Vetaran. More importantly, you'll be able to cast Boros Charm.
Because you'll be running so many cards that pump Minotaur creature with benefits make sure to include Mutavault. All that's left will be to back up your threats with removal cards like Dreadbore and Hero's Demise.
