5dollarMTG on $5 Budget Warriors

Thanks for the suggestions mufasamike! I tried some of those cards in earlier versions of this deck but Brutal Hordechief was too pricey for my $5 budget. I'd forgotten about Glory-Bound Initiate being a warrior, but you're right about that combo - I do something similar in my $5 Egyptian Exertion deck and it's great when it comes together.

Awesome! B/W Warriors was the first MTG deck I built and still my favorite. Mardu Woe-Reaper Graveblade Marauder and Mardu Strike Leader all have their uses, but Brutal Hordechief is absolutely essential. Really adds to the board you've been building and his activated ability wins games. Oh, also Glory-Bound Initiate + Herald of Dromoka / Brave the Sands + Arashin Foremost means you're gaining 8 life per swing by turn 4 ;)

Check out my deck for some ideas!

Hey, consider Warriors with Zurgo as Commander and Aurelia, the Warleader at the top of the mana curve?

There's many budget Warriors. Some that stand out are Mindblade Render , Rushblade Commander , Alesha, Who Smiles at Death , Ash Zealot , Bloodsoaked Champion , Blood-Chin Rager , Blood-Chin Fanatic , Arashin Foremost , Brutal Hordechief , Azra Oddsmaker ,etc. Aurelia is not a Warrior, but she can come into play after Zurgo for big double combat phases swings. Some budget pay offs for being tribal are: Raiders' Spoils , Shared Animosity , Obsidian Battle-Axe , Blood-Chin Fanatic , Arashin Foremost , Metallic Mimic , etc.

Zurgo benefits a lot from repeatable double strike being able to potentially do 14 or more points of Commander damage with one Zurgo attack. Arashin Foremost , Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder , Duelist's Heritage , Fireshrieker , Ajani, Caller of the Pride . Boros Charm is also an excellent card in Commander.

Just my opinion here, but it can be nasty to have in mind for future decks. A really nice combo with Rogue's Passage and Master of Cruelties is to add a Brutal Hordechief . Since you're already adding a combo off of Master with Passage, it makes for a nice bonus when you also drain life. While they won't lose the game since one happens during declare attakers, and the other happens at the end of declare blockers, it's still pretty fun to do. It's really just an "insult to injury" combo piece.

However, if you splash white in there at some point, Kaalia of the Vast can be a one-shot combo with Master of Cruelties playing off of her ability.

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?


Consider more one drop Vamps?

Consider more two drop Vamps?


Other cards to consider:

If you like some of these suggestions then I can help you to make cuts.

Good luck with your deck.

Include cards that make the opponent less likely to block:

Ankle Shanker, Odric, Lunarch Marshal (with the right keywords), Champion of Lambholt, Legion Loyalist, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist.

Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor is particularly saucy in Saskia.

You can also include cards that say creatures cannot block, or cards that change how blockers are assigned - Master Warcraft, Odric, Master Tactician and of course Brutal Hordechief.
