Rhys the Redeemed, while not great token generation, he can stack the doubling effect and as a one drop commander he's hard to get rid of

Anointed Procession for an extra token doubler. Rhys the Redeemed, though a bit weak an create and double tokens as well. If youre using Purphoros, Impact Tremors is the same except it is 2 less to cast and only deals 1 damage. It seems you have mana ramp to possibly run Avenger of Zendikar to drop tokens. Grave Titan when it etbs and when it attacks. I do love the idea of you using Forgotten Ancient. Asceticism and/or Privileged Position are great to protect your creatures.

Shalai seems a bit strange to lead a token army since people rarely target tokens. Rhys the Redeemed seems like a better fit.

Beastmaster Ascension is a great finisher.

Swap Sheltering Light for Rootborn Defenses. Regrowth is a better Reclaim.

Rhys the Redeemed is real cute in token strategies if your playgroup isn't hypercompetitive. I would also suggest upgrading your elspeth to Elspeth, Sun's Champion

@TheBloopKing , I am about to find a slot for Rhys the Redeemed as another 1 drop warrior. He can also serve as another high cost ability to double all tokens to try to get last bits of damage in if Najeela is taken out. Jazal Goldmane serves a similar purpose. I was able to pump all my creatures +19 the other day on an attack. I attacked with Champion of Rhonas, exerting him to drop Goldmane, then pumping. The opponents thought they were safe after Lignify or Trapped in the Moon (forget which enchant it was) was put on my Najeela. Rhys won't be nearly that explosive, but he gets down early and can swing a boardstate back in my favor if I have the tokens.

Seems like this deck could use a few more one drops to fix the curve, since you only really have 2 turn one plays in your deck and aggro needs a strong curve to be quick enough to overwhelm. Since you're going for a 'Warrior' theme, you can't play really strong cards like Voice of Resurgence or Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. Something you could add that will fit your theme would be Rhys the Redeemed since it's a warrior and a one drop that can create tokens. Looking at cards in gatherer, you could be playing Aven Skirmisher as a one drop but its fairly underwhelming of a card.

So the only card that gives you any sort of real warrior synergy is Rush of Battle, which is a pretty expensive card for such a small effect at sorcery speed. If it was a permanent it might be ok, but it just doesnt seem to do very much. Aggro doesnt need lifelink usually, but trample it can use.

I dont think you have any way of utilizing Bramblewood Paragon as it stands. I'm not seeing any cards that give +1/+1 counters in your deck.

Also consider that your deck runs no removal, and cannot deal with anything your opponent throws at you. So your deck as it stands instantly loses to Ensnaring Bridge, and gets impeded by even stuff like Ghostly Prison. Green has alot of artifact removal, I usually go for Naturalize but there's plenty of other good options.

My honest opinion would be to drop the Warrior theme, and go for a more finely tuned Abzan aggro/mid-range strategy with more solid cards.

Weekly update. Added in Mirror Entity. I somehow missed that card in the final build. I want to find space for a few more cards like Cryptolith Rite or Earthcraft then probably Rhys the Redeemed. Oh, and 100% need Goblin Bombardment I think. This list definitely still has room to grow.

TheBloopKing I had a list of every decent warrior made that I pulled from for this list. Grim was on it, but I felt he was a bit too expensive. Trying to lower the curve.
