Creature — Giant Warrior
Whenever another creature enters the battlefield, you may put X +1/+1 counters on Hamletback Goliath, where X is that creature's power.
Hamletback Goliath Discussion

Good question. It's kind of a goofy card to see in a goblin-focused deck, but its really for being able to get out Chancellor of the Forge and Hamletback Goliath for a lower cost and use them as further goblin-ramping.

A few suggestions (if accessible)...
Decimator of the Provinces , Ulamog's Crusher , Breaker of Armies , Hamletback Goliath , Ruric Thar, the Unbowed I think are all good budget suggestions. If you have a few dollars you could work up to Siege Behemoth , Elderscale Wurm , and Vigor would be some solid uogrades.
Drumhunter and Lifecrafter's Bestiary are budget draw engines for decks like this (even if Bestiary doesn’t work off of Mayael’s ability). Also, Congregation at Dawn is a super hawt budget tutor for any Mayael deck!
Sweet deck! +1

Love the deck man.
A few suggestions based on my Kresh Warrior Deck:
1) Ruric Thar, the Unbowed , why not
2) Living Death , again it has won me so many games
3) Hamletback Goliath , you MUST add this card it is NUTS (on average it grows to a 25/25-55/55 in my deck, which looks fairly similar)

Needs Paragon of Fierce Defiance . I think you left it out because it gives other creatures haste and you found it redundant, but with him out your warriors are +3/+3. Flamerush Rider . Cyclops Gladiator is more or less a /6 that fights every turn in this deck.
Falkenrath Marauders is a good stand-in for Ruttley and Taunton's hot-guy characters.

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
Clan Defiance - Doesn't impact the board enough to make us win the game.
Lavalanche - Effect we want but possible to find cheaper?
Crackling Doom - Doesn't do enough
Oketra's Monument - Doesn't trigger enough and the mana reduction isn't relevant enough
Attacking / Combat Matter Cards
Blood-Chin Rager - Warriors have Menace
Herald of Dromoka - Warriors have Vigilance
Chief of the Edge - Warriors get +1/+0
Raiders' Spoils - Very good card draw
Lovisa Coldeyes - Warriors +2/+2 Haste
Mindblade Render - MOAR card draw
Ogre Battledriver - Your warriors that enter will be 3/1s when attacking
Jazal Goldmane - Massive Buffs
Mardu Woe-Reaper - Graveyard Interaction
Thrasher Brute - Drains an opponent with warrior etb triggers
Edric, Spymaster of Trest - MOAR CARD DRAW
Cryptolith Rite - Lots of mana, infinite combats
Phyrexian Altar - Sac some of the tokens to activate Najeela
Derevi, Empyrial Tactician - Win the game
Sword of Feast and Famine - Win the game if you have the lands
Nature's Will - Win the game if you have the lands
Bear Umbra - Win the game if you have the lands
Archetype of Aggression - Trample
Purphoros, God of the Forge - This guy doesn't need explanation
Cyclonic Rift - ....yeh
Divine Visitation - BECAUSE ANGELS
Harvest Season - we make a lot of tapped and attacking creatures. We want mana
Throne of the God-Pharaoh - Alternate win cons
Shared Animosity - Massive Buffs
Aggravated Assault - Easier Najeela trigger without keywords
Aven Wind Guide - Gives our tokens flying and vigilance

How can you have such a creature heavy deck about shirtless hunks without inviting Hamletback Goliath to the party?

Hamletback Goliath is surprisingly a warrior and can get huge so quickly.
Blood-Chin Fanatic is amazing in this deck it gives direct damage and life gain.
other cards that get you mana when creatures deal damage/attack fit so well with Najelaas ability for infinite combat steps Bear Umbra Nature's Will and Sword of Feast and Famine are good cards (in ascending price order i understand how expensive the last one is but bear umbra is cheep now)

I can't remember their prices but you'll definitely want Gratuitous Violence and Furnace of Rath. Berserkers' Onslaught is also meaty, or, if you prefer, Blood Mist: it's one mana cheaper and Xenagos can only make one Boi T H I C C at a time anyway.
Also the art is fucking baller.
Rage Reflection also enables doublestrike, but is more defensive which doesn't sound like your gameplan. It's also 6 mana, ugh.
Combat Celebrant is a cheap extra combat step. He also has high power low toughness, which synergies with Xenagos? I think? He's not too good without vigilance tho :P.
Another not a 'good' one but a favourite of mine, Lightning Runner. They're the fuckn man. Kaladesh best block, this brooks no argument.
An incredibly thicc lad is Hamletback Goliath. However no natural trample makes him kinda bad. He routinely becomes like 30/30 without any help however.
