Hurloon Minotaur

Hurloon Minotaur {1}{R}{R}

Creature - Minotaur
The Minotaurs of the Hurloon Mountains are known for their love of battle. They are also known for their hymns to the dead, sung for friend and foe alike. These hymns can last for days, filling the mountain valleys with their low, haunting sounds.
2/3
Ironclaw Orcs

Ironclaw Orcs {1}{R}

Creature - Orc
Ironclaw Orcs can't block creatures with power 2 or greater.
Generations of genetic weeding have given rise to the deviously cowardly Ironclaw clan. To say that Orcs in general are vicious, depraved, and ignoble does not do justice to the Ironclaw.

1/1
Orcish Artillery

Orcish Artillery {1}{R}{R}

Creature - Orc Warrior

Creature - Troll
Sedge Troll gets +1/+1 as long as you control a Swamp.

The stench in the hovel was overpowering; something loathsome was cooking. Occasionally something surfaced in the thick paste, but my host would casually push it down before I could make out what it was.

Instant
Destroy target artifact.
Shivan Dragon

Shivan Dragon {4}{R}{R}

Creature - Dragon
Flying
{R}: Shivan Dragon gets +1/+0 until end of turn.
