Brutal Hordechief Discussion

Consider dropping the following: Derevi, Empyrial Tactician - not a Warrior Boros Signet, Selesnya Signet & Gruul Signet - weak color fixing and better use of sleeves.
Bident of Thassa - not sure, seems kinda weak but it may be better in your deck.
Bear Umbra - cute aura, but aura's are weak in multipler unless your playing aura voltron.
Sosuke, Son of Seshiro - you aren't making snakes. I know that the destroy a creature is nice, but deathtouch does effectively the same thing.

Warriors to consider:
Mardu Woe-Reaper, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk, Wild Nacatl, Blood-Chin Fanatic, Ogre Marauder, Brutal Hordechief, Drumhunter, Wolfir Silverheart
Glistener Elf - for those times when you really HAVE to but don't want to.....
Patriarch's Bidding - the best tribal recursion spell
Bloodsoaked Champion & Reassembling Skeleton - skullclamp or chump block all day long.
Surrak Dragonclaw & Yasova Dragonclaw - Because why not?
Imperious Perfect & Nacatl War-Pride - tokens!
Brion Stoutarm - fling!
Cliffhaven Vampire - this could be a combo piece....
Herald of Secret Streams - ahahahahahahaha Bramblewood Paragon has a best friend

There are more Warriors to consider, but I wanted to focus on some utility that you may have overlooked.
Here are some lands you may have overlooked: Unclaimed Territory, Opal Palace, Reflecting Pool

Take out Brutal Hordechief who is not in your commander's color identity and put in Hellrider.

Two creatures I use in my deck for Najeela that help are Combat Celebrant which is helpful if you don't have the mana to use Najeela ability for another phase you can exert him. The other would be Brutal Hordechief which is a fun way to go crazy in both draining life with each attack step, and if you got the extra mana going, especially from Druids' Repository, you can control the blocks and make sure to maximize the damage.

I second Nature's Will and Druids' Repository and add Sword of Feast and Famine and Bear Umbra. If you want to go infinite with Cryptolith Rite add in Ahn-Crop Champion or Reconnaissance. Reconnaissance also has the added effect of avoiding combat.

If you want warriors with excellent attack triggers, take a look at Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Arashin Foremost, Blood-Chin Rager, Brutal Hordechief, really all the warriors from Tarkir and Amonkhet. There's also some really cool equipment like Blade of Selves and Helm of the Host that will help.

I've been thinking about making a deck with this guy. It's that I already have a deck in these colours, otherwise I probably would have gone for it. He's cool.

You could try adding some things which put it clearly out there that if things are attacking you, they are dying.. Thinking Dread or Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts. Or just something like High Priest of Penance. Brutal Hordechief is also a very good offensive tool, but really good politically as well, considering you can force your opponents into a bad block, so persuading other opponents to attack them should be easier.

Also, note that Bounty Hunter does not help Mathas get the counters out there. Since the effect Mathas' bounty counters have are tied to his specific ability, the creatures only gain that effect if Mathas gives them the counter. If the counter should be removed, it can be re-added by a Bounty Hunter to trigger the effect, but putting a Bounty counter on a creature with Bounty Hunter while having Mathas on the field will not give you the draw effect.Of course, you can still use him to kill the creatures tagged by Mathas. If that's your intention, never mind my comments.
