Blood-Chin Rager Discussion

Also, in aggro decks, I especially recommend running 2 - 4x Valorous Stance. That card's utility is way too good to pass up. Especially in a meta with Fatal Push. It will not block Path to Exile, but most people would probably try not to use those up right away. Instead of Mardu Charm, I would run Secure the Wastes, and for the most part Crackling Doom is kind of worthless in modern, unless you're going up against a control type deck.
Kolaghan's Command is almost a must if you can afford the price (since you got the colors I would put at least 2x in my SB). I bought 8 of them when they were selling for a buck, I knew that card was going to be broken.
- -3x Devoted Crop-Mate
- -4x Glory-Bound Initiate
- -2x Always Watching
- -2x Mardu Charm
- -3x Herald of Dromoka
- -1x Honored Crop-Captain
- -4x Nef-Crop Entangler
+3x Blood-Chin Rager
- +3x Valorous Stance
- +2x Secure the Wastes
- +3x Sorin, Solemn Visitor (Your main wincon with some board state)
- +4x Chief of the Edge
- +2x Battle Brawler
- +2x Path to Exile
- +1 or 2x Brutal Hordechief as a topper / alt win-con
- +1 or 2x Hero's Downfall
Maybe if you find space for it, a Mardu Strike Leader.
- -2x Mountain
- -4x Nomad Outpost
- +4x Battlefield Forge
- +4x Caves of Koilos
- +2x Mana Confluence or City of Brass
Total 22 lands since your CMC is so low. You also need some wincon finishers, Sorin, Solemn Visitor is my aggro planeswalker of choice here. He also pairs nice with the painlands, basically having you recover any early self-pain. You should definitely use some disruption, probably Thoughtseize in SB otherwise you are highly vulnerable to wipes. Something on the sideboard for drawing extra cards wouldn't hurt either, e.g. Painful Truths.
So, for the SB, I would add
Depending on how competitive your meta is, there's a few other things you might need to add in there.
The core of most warrior decks look extremely similar because those are generally the best warriors out there.

I think Sorin is better due to the effect lasting through the opponent's turn and, most importantly, coming with an anthem. He's also effectively 1 mana cheaper, and can make tokens for you if your board is empty or nearly empty. That said if you want more land and can't choose what else to cut, that could be fine. The deathtouch vault gives could be a nice bonus sometimes, especially with Blood-Chin Rager. I'm also not really a fan of having any mainboard Secure the Wastes, and would probably cut it for a Sorin, or the 4th copy of Blood-Chin Rager or Mardu Woe-Reaper.

Thanks for the feedback KGW! I hadn't considered Zealous Persecution, but I love the card and its a good idea here. The main issue is that you can only fit so many noncreature spells into an Aether Vial deck, and that's really the direction I want to go with this right now. I will probably fit some in the sideboard though once I develop one. As for Blood-Chin Rager, I absolutely loved playing it in standard, and tried very hard to find a spot for it. The issue there is that I already have a whopping 16 two drops here, and I can't really imagine myself cutting any of the others, at least without testing. It will probably also find a home in the sideboard. As for Arashin Foremost, I debated adding more and may still do so. The main issue is it's hard to cast with my manabase, the Mutavaults restricting my access to colored mana. But Aether Vial does help, it speeds up my clock nicely, and with Vial it can even be a combat trick. I was already uncertain what the distribution between it and Devoted Crop-Mate should be, or whether Always Watching was worth it at all, so I may totally increase the number of those. Thanks again for the suggestions!

Great list! Have you considered finding a home in the 75 for Zealous Persecution? I run a few copies maindeck and find that it, along with Blood-Chin Rager really prevents the opponent from properly blocking. I'd also recommend that Arashin Foremost be a 4 of; it is stupid powerful in a tribal build. Check out my BW warrior build in my profile, its a bit more all in than your build, but I find that it is a blast to play at FNM.

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!

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.
