Whenever Mardu Woe-Reaper or another Warrior enters the battlefield under your control, you may exile target creature card from a graveyard. If you do, you gain 1 life.
Mardu Woe-Reaper Discussion

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!

Seems like a good idea, but i fail to see the behind the Font of Agonies ? Also, I reckon you could streamline this a lot if you go more in on a Warrior subtype deck. Maybe use cards like Gatekeeper of Malakir or maybe Mardu Woe-Reaper . Otherwise a good idea.

Yeah, I got them I reckon, and I should be able to find them. No need to add anything to the trade though. So you want a Zurgo Bellstriker , Mardu Woe-Reaper , and a Winter Orb for Ravos, Soultender ?

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

Your deck isn't pure control, rather it is an aggro-control hybrid, which is fine.
Lets deal with the NO (counters) section of a control deck. The first cards I thought of when looking at your deck were Delay, Grimoire Thief and Countersquall but they might be more than you want to spend. Since your using creatures to exile Familiar's Ruse is budget friendly and gives you the chance to recast your creature and exile a new card. Judge's Familiar is a creature and a cheap evasive creature at that, so is probably worth consideration. Perplex Might work as a counter or tutor. Honorable mentions Dawn Charm (fog or conditional counter), Dash Hopes (a black counter, really) and Dissipate. You might want to think about other spells too Thought Scour, Vapor Snag, Appetite for Brains, Castigate and Transgress the Mind...
The creature side of my suggestions is much shorter, first up is two one drops Deadeye Tracker and Mardu Woe-Reaper, they have similar uses essentially sending cards back to exile. For two drops there is Brain Maggot, basically additional copies of Tidehollow Sculler. Now we jump a bit to the control finisher, your using The Eldest Reborn I'd suggest backing that up with Cryptic Serpent and maybe Tasigur, the Golden Fang. Finally Murk Strider is worth consideration as well.
I'm not expecting you to use all of these cards, rather I'm throwing out ideas that might be of use to you. Hopefully this is of help, have fun with your brew.

This deck seems quite interesting and offers the idea of a five-color good-stuff aggro build. I love many of the inclusions, such as Najeela, the Blade-Blossom. It could perhaps see some upgrades, such as Soldier of the Pantheon and Mardu Woe-Reaper in place of Savannah Lions, in addition to having some hatebear creatures, like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and some protection against creature removal like Mother of Runes.
