Brutal Hordechief Discussion
2 weeks ago
Hey, this is a good start, but consider being even more aggressive with Vamps and eminence?
One drop Vamps are pretty important to the strategy with eminence, but the manabase here can't support them very well. Consider more lands that can ETB untapped turn one especially to make black mana for Vamps?
- Unclaimed Territory
- Caves of Koilos
- Sulfurous Springs
- Battlefield Forge
- Concealed Courtyard
- Inspiring Vantage
- Sacred Foundry
- Blood Crypt
- Luxury Suite
- City of Brass
- Mana Confluence
- Bloodstained Mire
Consider more one drop Vamps?
- Shadow Alley Denizen : eminence Vamp tokens are black.
- Viscera Seer
- Vampire Cutthroat
- Skymarcher Aspirant
- Falkenrath Gorger
- Stromkirk Noble
- Insolent Neonate
Consider more two drop Vamps?
- Dusk Legion Zealot
- Olivia's Bloodsworn
- Vampire Interloper
- Bloodthrone Vampire
- Stromkirk Condemned
- Zulaport Cutthroat : not a Vamp, but very good when Vamp tokens are dieing.
Other cards to consider:
- Sanctum Seeker and Brutal Hordechief : add to the aggression give a lot of opponent life lose reach with attacking Vamps.
- Shared Animosity : very powerful anthem effect with attacking tokens.
- Dark Prophecy : triggers when tokens die.
- Mass Hysteria
- Boros Charm : protection from most board wipes.
- Price of Progress : great burn in Commander, gives a lot of damage reach for two mana.
- Anguished Unmaking
- Swords to Plowshares
If you like some of these suggestions then I can help you to make cuts.
Good luck with your deck.

Marchesa's Decree Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs Skyline Despot Windborn Muse Baird, Steward of Argive Knights of the Black Rose Ankle Shanker Brutal Hordechief Adriana, Captain of the Guard Comeuppance Crawlspace A few extra pillow fort cards, some to help get you monarchy and benefit you while you are the monarch, and some to help your tokens become more powerful.

Include cards that make the opponent less likely to block:
Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor is particularly saucy in Saskia.

For something similar to making your enemies attack each other, cards like Brutal Hordechief (you can activate his ability at any time), Bitter Feud (choose two of your opponents), Mystic Barrier (This card looks weird but can be GREAT), Choice of Damnations (just very fun late game), Porphyry Nodes (punishes aggro), and Sorcerous Spyglass (planeswalkers, commanders, etc.) are all very good.
Also in addition to cards like Gideon's Intervention there is Voidstone Gargoyle - it's good with eminence and some other effects, but Gideon's Intervention is more versatile because of the no-damage clause.

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

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.
