If this is suppose to be an exert deck then you've put in a lot of bad cards in lieu of good ones like Glorybringer and Ahn-Crop Crasher. Likewise you're completely neglecting white which has many more exert cards that are good or at least better than what you have here like Glory-Bound Initiate, Resolute Survivors, and even Vizier of the True isn't absolutely awful for the them here.

I found Resolute Survivors goes well in this deck theme as well. I was doing 8 to 10 damage with the exertion alone, then combat damage.

Resolute Survivors is a great card. I had it in my boros exert. But no Glorybringer? Your deck is awesome.

1 drops... sacred cat 2, bomat courier 2, magma spray 3

2 drops... adorned pouncer or glory-bound initiate 3, skyterror 3, tormenting voice 4

3 drops... aerial responder 2, combat celebrant 2, devoted crop-mate 2, sunscourge champion 2, sweltering suns 3

4 drops... gideons intervention or ixalans binding or cast out 2

5 drops... angel of invention, glorybringer total of 4

7 drops... god-pharaohs gift 4

22 Lands

So to answer your question i think it would look something like this. Maybe some adjustments to ensure a gift midgame. Maybe Inventors' Fair if you keep scrapheaps and such or the gate. Maybe gideon walkers. Main thing is lots of creatures in an agro style, and enough draw so you dont gas out and enough life(lots of lifegain from creatures to help counter other agro decks) to pull a wincon if game goes long. Gideon/ixalans for scrab god or other troublesome things. Then gift to stay going midgame.

Some other thoughts... -you could make a semi exertion style deck with Combat Celebrant + Resolute Survivors type deal and run anointed procession for double tokens off gift and basically win off drain from survivors- i have been messing with my mardu again because of the success with my boros... anointed processions and panharmonicons are both pretty sick in reanimators(i like procession better). Ixalans binding is under-rated. Yes it is slow, but, for example, it locks ramunap red out of the scarey stuff they play multiples of (ferocidon, glorybringer, hazorets). Ixalans is reactive, gideons intervention is proactive. I like both. Your 1,3 & 4 drop slot become great sideboard slots for the deck as you can customize your removal packages with flexibility. 4 interventions for control, 4 settle the wreckage for agro/energy, 4 bindings... doesnt matter, go nuts. Hope that helps.

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.

I would:

Maybe if you find space for it, a Mardu Strike Leader.


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

2x Thoughtseize2x Anguished Unmaking2x Blessed Alliance2x Kolaghan's Command

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.

You can use Inspiring Vantage to improve the mana. I would also get Lightning Strike and Ramunap Ruins. Some good cheap creatures are Bomat Courier and Rigging Runner. It might be worth it to try to get some Hazoret the Fervent and Glorybringers. Another good exert payoff is Resolute Survivors.
