Blood-Chin Rager Discussion
1 week ago
Looks pretty good, I'm not too familiar with frontier but I would bump Arashin Foremost to a full playset, and also consider testing Mardu Strike Leader and Blood-Chin Rager. I would put those in instead of Chief of the scale. I've toyed around with Warriors multiple times and the butt chief always kinda underperformed in my experience.

Blood-Chin Rager makes your warriors almost unblockable. Definitely a strong card to consider!

Woo, black white warriors are fun.
I like Battle Brawler for BW warriors, particularly if it is T2 and Chief of the Edge is T3. Also Arashin Foremost is another one I'm fond of. Brutal Hordechief is probably not too expensive anymore and is another nice warrior.
I'm not sure about Stoneforge Masterwork but you'll see how it fits as you play it I guess. Blood-Chin Fanatic doesn't stand out to me, but again I haven't played it so maybe it works. Blood-Chin Rager on the other hand I want four of.
Raiders' Spoils is another one that you might want to try. In any case there are a lot of warrior options. Have fun with the deck!
Vaan on B/W Warrior

This seems like the perfect deck for Vampire Lacerator, with some upgrades to you manabase Gatekeeper of Malakir becomes a nice option, Blood-Chin Fanatic can Fling your warriors at your opponents face for added reach while gaining you some health.

xrex479 Thanks for the suggestions, Not of This World would surely lead to some hilarious reactions. That's a card that wasn't on my radar at all, great suggestion. Maybe I should swap it for a board wipe?
Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion is cool too. I just don't know about spending five mana for it since the deck has a lot of equip costs to pay. Rogue's Passage has the exact same issue of course, but its effect is a bit more unique in the deck. Zurgo is somewhat likely to already have double strike.
Second, Bojuka Bog -> Swamp. To try to increase my grave hate in compensation, I switched Nihil Spellbomb for Rakdos Charm since Sunforger & Open the Armory can get it. I also swapped the bad topdeck of Blood-Chin Rager for Diabolic Tutor to get game winners like Tainted Strike or Obliterate. Lastly, I want to try Inquisitor's Flail in place of Fireshrieker since Fireshrieker is redundant with a second double strike source.

I'd consider trading Herald of Anafenza for some Blood-Chin Rager, just to make things more difficult for blockers
Also, I'd try some Mardu Woe-Reaper for an early threat and with a good ability.

Friendly reminder that you don't need to pick one over the other.
The best anthems in the format either aren't creature specific: Crescendo of War, Cathars' Crusade, Archangel of Strife, Archangel of Thune, Eldrazi Monument, Jazal Goldmane, and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, or don't mention one type over another: Coat of Arms, so there's no reason all your tokens need to be of the same type. (Before anyone says it, it does not matter that some of those buff your opponents' creatures. The fact that you are going to have so many more creatures than them will negate any advantage they might stand to receive.)
If you're planning on going wide, Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer is without a doubt the best choice as commander, although Adriana, Captain of the Guard can be solid if you don't want to build into artfacts and usually play with 4 or more people.
As far as Soldiers or Warriors as a tribe, building tribal decks is much less an issue of how many good creatures there are of that tribe, and more about how many cards give you bonuses for sticking to that tribe and including a lot of creatures of that type. In this respect it's much more useful to search though all the cards that mention that type in their text box, rather than looking though all the creatures that are that type.
Soldiers: Gather Search (106 cards, 96 in Boros colors)
Warriors: Gather Search (90 cards, 39 in Boros colors)
Just looking at those numbers, it's easy to see that Soldiers are more supported than Warriors, and especially so in red and white. To break it down further, lets check how many of those cards have effects that are relevant is commander (i.e. generate card advantage, scale well in multiplayer, are cost efficient, and/or allow you to cast spells more efficiently.) Specifically, I'm looking for effects that reward you for playing Soldiers or Warriors, rather than cards that just make them like Assemble the Legion, which can go in any deck.
- Ballyrush Banneret
- Captain of the Watch
- Catapult Master
- Daru Warchief
- Field Marshal
- Knight-Captain of Eos
- Preeminent Captain
- Rhox Pikemaster
- Unified Strike
- Veteran's Armaments
Here we have, 2 cost reducers, 4 anthem effects, 1 cheater, 2 removal spells, and a sword. Kind of mediocre actually, the anthem effects are outclassed by what I listed above, and only Catapult Master, Preeminent Captain, and Unified Strike really require you to build heavily into their tribe.
Here we have, 1 sac outlet / life drainer, 2 evasion effects (probably better options for this, Cover of Darkness for example), 1 cost reducer, 1 (meh) haste granter, and 3 anthem effects. Clearly, Warriors are the less supported tribe here.
To sum up: Soldiers have more support than Warriors, especially in Boros; there's no reason to stick to one over the other; don't go nuts trying to force a theme if there's no reward for it.
