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!

Graveblade Marauder was in my old deathtouch and lifelink deck. Otherwise I would suggest not playing Zulaport Cutthroat because it only triggers on your opponent's creatures.

My sudggestions for improvement:

+2 Ambush Viper flash + deathtouch is good

+2 Poison-Tip Archer you said this worked well so play 4

+4 Blood Artist More of the same effect is good

+1 Rancor amazing card

+4 Grave Titan better win con than varaska.

+4 narnum renegade better 1 mana deathtoucher

+4 Graveblade Marauder I like this card in deathtouch decks

+21 cards

-2 Gorgon Recluse too high mana cost and no way to madness it.

-2 Vraska the Unseen too slow of a win con.

-3 Pharika's Chosen narnum renegade is better.

-2 Nyx Weaver has no synergy here.

-1 Hythonia the Cruel too slow and expensive.

-2 Primal Rage

-3 Unholy Strength

-2 Wreath of Geists

-2 Boar Umbra

-2 Reaper of the Wilds Blood Artist is better and you have to pay to give this deathtouch.

-21 cards

auras are not good unless they are put on hexproof creatures. Except for Rancor that card is great because it returns to your hand. Pump spells are not great outside of stompy and infect decks.

Testing some Knight of Autumn mainboard instead of sideboard, as they kind of fill the void that cutting Kolaghan's Command had left. The fact that I can tutor for it with Eldritch Evolution is great also.

Leaving one Courser of Kruphix and moving the Graveblade Marauder to the sideboard. Marauder is an absolute house, but a lot of Game 1's there isn't a lot of removal, so I would rather bring him in alongside Alesha, Who Smiles at Death and extra Spellskite s for removal heavy matches.

Recommended Cuts

Creatures

Blightsteel Colossus - Curve reasons

Graveblade Marauder - Cute but effect probably isn't good enough

Hamletback Goliath - Curve reasons

Khenra Eternal - Bad card basically. Though we want this slot to be at that mana cost

Khenra Scrapper - Again. We want aggressive cards like this but we can do better

Saskia the Unyielding - Big target on your head. Colour intensive. Not a warrior

Savage Knuckleblade - Colour intensive

Taurean Mauler - Doesn't work towards our game plan. Doesn't trigger off combat damage doesn't buff others.

Tenacious Dead - Just bad

Tolsimir Wolfblood - Buff isn't universal and its expensive

Zhur-Taa Druid - We want mana dorks. But only taps for green and its colour intensive to cast.

Maybe Cuts Or Later Cuts

Thunderfoot Baloth - Expensive but ok effect.

Hellkite Charger - Maybe cut. We already have access to this effect at cheaper cost

Zurgo Helmsmasher - He's good. But doesn't help the rest of the game plan

Sorceries

Maybe Cut

Clan Defiance - Doesn't impact the board enough to make us win the game.

Lavalanche - Effect we want but possible to find cheaper?

Enchantment

Fires of Yavimaya - Replace with Rhythm of the Wild

Instant

Artifact Mutation && Aura Mutation - Change with generic artifact or enchantment removal

Crackling Doom - Doesn't do enough

Artifact

Oketra's Monument - Doesn't trigger enough and the mana reduction isn't relevant enough

Recommendations

Maybe

Aven Wind Guide - Gives our tokens flying and vigilance

Sat down with the deck again and made a few speed and consistency changes:

Out:

2x Spellskite - Moved to sideboard because, as amazing as they are about protecting Doran, other creatures, and myself, it doesn't help the Game 1 speed drawing into your 2nd or 3rd one.

2x Assassin's Trophy - Moved to SB or out altogether as well. 2 plus Bolts and Pulse is a good amount of Game 1 removal.

1x Obelisk Spider - Still a card I like, but I think it fits the sideboard better if at all.

1x Forest - Changing the number of manadorks makes 22 lands less necessary, but I made add this Forest back in and take out a different land due to the prevalence of Field of Ruin , Path to Exile , and Assassin's Trophy .

In:

2x Noble Hierarch - This helps increase the number of nut draws we have, as well as squeezing in a few more damage early game if it sticks. From past experience I know that I never want more than 6 total manadorks, but we'll see if I end up liking 5 more.

2x Courser of Kruphix - I ran this guy a long, long time ago, and since building the Bloodbraid Elf version and really solidifying the landbase I never gave him another chance. I don't agree with the decks that run 4, but at 2 I have always been happy to draw him, and I tend to get back 3-4 life during an average game. On top of that, it smooths out land drops, and allows me to see what I may Cascade into, which is great.

1x Graveblade Marauder - This is kind of a flex slot with Obelisk Spider , but this is a creature I've always wanted to include but never really tried before. He can get very, very scary, especially if a few creatures have already died from removal or Eldritch Evolution . I've only been using it for about a week and there have already been several times during playtesting where it is swinging for 4, plus an additional 4+. The fact that he can still deal a lot of damage even without Doran or Assault Formation out is a definite plus.

2x Rhythm of the Wild - This is a new card I am pretty excited about. I played with a few Lightning Greaves for a short time and the haste was brutal to play against, and making the creature Hexproof, especially a bird or Doran, was fantastic. I feel like Rhythm fill that same slot, but is a much better Cascade target, helps against control decks, and doesn't change the sequence of damage for most of my non-manadork-enabled combats, as they still attack on the same turn they would normally have attacked. I also like that it helps to get manadorks out of bolt range if needed, and allows new creatures to attack without Doran or Formation. Really excited to try this card out.

Other than that, still working on the sideboard some more. Trying to get a boardwipe in there that I like, but Slaughter the Strong doesn't hit much of anything that I see frequently besides Eldrazi and Wurmcoil Engine , and Anger of the Gods hits all my utility creatures unless they are buffed. It sure would be nice to cascade into when I really need the wipe, however. Also considering Cry of the Carnarium from Allegiance.
