Herald of Dromoka Discussion

Based on what I've seen, I'd recommend cutting:
Dusk : This kills 48% of the creatures in your own deck.
Battlegrace Angel : with all your tokens and other angels, you'll rarely have anyone attacking alone.
Confessor : in a lot of cases, this guy won't do much.
Graceblade Artisan : not enough auras to make this dude worth it
Herald of Dromoka : there's only two warriors in the deck, so he doesnt have much combo potential
Things I'd suggest adding:
If you want more suggestions, lemme know and I can provide them. IF you need to trim down more creatures, try looking for things that are outside the theme of your deck. For example, it seems your focus is many small white creatures, life gain, big flyers/angels, and +1/+1 counters, so it would make sense to start trimming down by removing things that don't fit with that theme.
Good luck and happy decking! -Toothy

I would get rid of Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Warden of the First Tree because first of all neither of them are warriors. I would replace them with some more removal and perhaps Lingering Souls, also two more Bloodsoaked Champion as well as some Brutal Hordechief in exchange of some mixture of Chief of the Scale and Herald of Dromokaand even though it is not the cheapest Path to Exile is amazing.and pain lands and bounce lands would fix the mana base + some Unclaimed Territory

CChaos thanks for the love, dude. Herald of Dromoka will more or less do the same for you :) unless you plan to include a bunch of Dragonscale General :) I can't allow this otherwise brilliant suggestion in - on account of its destinct non-warriorness ;) but thanks for the love and attention. Stay frosty!

Good cuts include Elvish Skysweeper, unless you have plenty of fliers in your meta. Disowned Ancestor: fine early game, and it would be hella good if outlast wasn't a sorcery, but alas. Graveblade Marauder is okay but it's generally lackluster (relies on your dudes dying). Herald of Dromoka and Dragonscale General cancel each other out. Petrified Wood-Kin is risky and Matsu-Tribe Sniper is just sorta lame. Spirit Loop really doesn't fit the theme of the deck.
Sorry I have to be salty here, just wanted to suggest some cuts. Also maybe drop the banners for signets (eg Boros Signet).

Hyperalgialysis, If Brave the Sands is ever print in a masters set at common, it would be a huge buff to the deck. Not only would it add consitancy to the deck, it would allow us to play one of the be common exert creatures, Gust Walker more reliably. Though with all the pseudo-vigilance related things being suggested recently (Thanks by the way), how would the deck play without the warrior theme and instead, focusing more on other ways to untap the creatures? Personally, I believe that playing the one time effects won't help enough with consistency, and the Herald of Dromoka and Marshaling Crys are stronger overall, even of the cute exert untapping doesn't work every time.

Hi, interesting idea, but i think this deck really stands on Herald of Dromoka. So maybe i would add some buffing instants which untap creature like Veteran's Reflexes or Djeru's Resolve. And maybe you can put there even Keldon Marauders, they can attack twice with that haste guy + they are warriors.

As an agro deck you should be careful about what kinds of lands and early plays you put into your deck. Playing a card like Despise means you're not playing a 1CMC creature which could take you off an aggressive path. Same goes for Scoured Barrens, since you want to play a 1CMC creature a lot more than you want to gain 1 life on turn one. Fairly cheap upgrades to the mana to ensure you are playing untapped lands are cards like Concealed Courtyard and Caves of Koilos.
Solemn Offering is a sideboard card at best and should not be in the mainboard.
Chief of the Scale is too defensive, Hateblade, Hordechief, Skullhunter, Pain Seer, Herald, and Hordemate are all fairly mediocre and certainly not worth putting you over the 60 card minimum and decreasing your efficiency.
Subtracting the Despise, Offering, and cards mentioned above leaves room for about 25-30 or so slots that can be used to help make the deck more aggressive and cohesive. Cards like-

Also, in aggro decks, I especially recommend running 2 - 4x Valorous Stance. That card's utility is way too good to pass up. Especially in a meta with Fatal Push. It will not block Path to Exile, but most people would probably try not to use those up right away. Instead of Mardu Charm, I would run Secure the Wastes, and for the most part Crackling Doom is kind of worthless in modern, unless you're going up against a control type deck.
Kolaghan's Command is almost a must if you can afford the price (since you got the colors I would put at least 2x in my SB). I bought 8 of them when they were selling for a buck, I knew that card was going to be broken.
- -3x Devoted Crop-Mate
- -4x Glory-Bound Initiate
- -2x Always Watching
- -2x Mardu Charm
- -3x Herald of Dromoka
- -1x Honored Crop-Captain
- -4x Nef-Crop Entangler
+3x Blood-Chin Rager
- +3x Valorous Stance
- +2x Secure the Wastes
- +3x Sorin, Solemn Visitor (Your main wincon with some board state)
- +4x Chief of the Edge
- +2x Battle Brawler
- +2x Path to Exile
- +1 or 2x Brutal Hordechief as a topper / alt win-con
- +1 or 2x Hero's Downfall
Maybe if you find space for it, a Mardu Strike Leader.
- -2x Mountain
- -4x Nomad Outpost
- +4x Battlefield Forge
- +4x Caves of Koilos
- +2x Mana Confluence or City of Brass
Total 22 lands since your CMC is so low. You also need some wincon finishers, Sorin, Solemn Visitor is my aggro planeswalker of choice here. He also pairs nice with the painlands, basically having you recover any early self-pain. You should definitely use some disruption, probably Thoughtseize in SB otherwise you are highly vulnerable to wipes. Something on the sideboard for drawing extra cards wouldn't hurt either, e.g. Painful Truths.
So, for the SB, I would add
Depending on how competitive your meta is, there's a few other things you might need to add in there.
The core of most warrior decks look extremely similar because those are generally the best warriors out there.
