Herald of Dromoka Discussion

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.

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.

I built a similar deck to this during the theros block for standard.
Not sure I agree with Herald of Dromoka, seems like you could do better for that spot. Same thing with Glory-Bound Initiate. The exertion gimmick is costing you too many cards I think, and warriors can be far more aggresive.
As for lands, you have far better options than Nomad Outpost without breaking a budget.
Not sure if this is something you converted from standard to modern recently, but in any case you could check out The Horde smiles at death - Competitive (budget) for some inspiration (maybe).

I like the deck. I have a warrior deck too. You can watch it, if you want.
Only my deck is i saw that you plays Combat Celebrant great card.
Attack in turn 4 two times.

One glaring problem: Commander decks NEED to be 100 cards, no more and no less. If you're building for theme, take out some of the more expensive non-tarkir cards. If you don't care that much, take out some of the cards that don't synergize well. For example, you have like 3 Warrior creatures in the deck, so Herald of Dromoka doesn't really help you. There are better 2-drop creatures in white and quite possibly in Tarkir blocks.
Cards I would consider taking out: Herald of Dromoka, Seek the Horizon, Wing Storm (this one can go to sideboard for anti-flying decks), Pinion Feast (same as Wing Storm), Fleetfeather Sandals, Life's Finale (since your deck is creature focused, you don't want symmetrical board wipes), Incremental Growth, Abzan Skycaptain (only benefits when it dies, not when it enters, so it doesn't help immediately), Longshot Squad to sideboard, Krosan Reclamation.
I would also recommend taking out Fertile Thicket for a forest, and taking out 2 swamps.

As for replacements, one way you could go is:
However, if you aren't a fan of those, any on-color land is a fine option, as is Glory-Bound Initiate, Mardu Strike Leader, Dragon Hunter, Ruthless Cullblade, or Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (provided you'd be willing to relent about the 100% warrior ratio, of course). Something even more experimental would be Smuggler's Copter. Your creatures tend to have 3 power so it doesn't speed you up usually, but it gives you access to flying and lets you filter away dead cards in the late game. It also survives board wipes. Could be worth a try.

I like the warrior theme, and Thalia's Lieutenant isn't a warrior
Metallic Mimic is every creature type what you choose.
I can't choose for a good replacement.

Nice deck! I agree with KGW that you could stand to remove the Secure the Wastes, or at least move them to the sideboard. You have too few lands to get much value, and they lower your density of creatures for Aether Vial.
I'd also either add more lands or cut Brutal Hordechief- it's the weaker 4-drop compared to Sorin, Solemn Visitor imo, and you'll have a very hard time casting it with so few lands. Aether Vial helps, but if you tick it up to 4 you'll never get to use it again.
Finally, I think you should test out Herald of Dromoka at some point. It looks weak on the surface, I thought so too at first, but giving your whole team vigilance can be invaluable in racing other aggressive decks, letting you attack with your whole team and still have blockers the next turn.
Finally, I'm not a fan of the Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Black is your secondary color, so all it's really doing is letting you tap your fetches for mana without cracking them, but all that saves you is 1 life and you only have 4 fetches anyway. I'd swap it for Windswept Heath, and possibly one of your basic Plains as well, to give you more fetches to trigger revolt for Fatal Push. Mutavault or Fetid Heath would also be strong choices for the slot if you don't want any more painful lands.
