Working with Syrix, Carrier of the Flame?

Champion of Stray Souls has something similar going, although a lot more expensive. I'm also trying to include a little dredge to get creature cards out of the graveyard. Gravewaker is bullshit-expensive to activate, but is another possibility. Another useful card might be Undead Gladiator.

If you are doing goofy tribal check with your playgroup. They may be ok with you using a non-legendary creature as your commander.

For example Before we had tiny bones I built skeleton tribal with Champion of Stray Souls as a commander.

I also once attempted crocodile tribal with Emperor Crocodile at the helm.

Most of these cards aren't very good or broken so the table is usually fine with it. Might be could to use something like Witch of the Moors as your commander. It would be super on theme and give you a focus to build around. Or go for something less powerful like the new Sedgemoor Witch still would be fun to be around but without hating on opponents boards.

All that said most witches should have some sort of evil entity that they summon or worship, so while not the strongest I would stick with Spirit of the Night.

I like how the guy above this comment just casually strolls in and tells you to put in a bunch of moxen...

That said, warriors is one of my favorite tribes and I've made a ton of decks with them! Plus Najeela is such a badass commander! These are my suggestions that you haven't included and could serve as some better synergy with your deck than your non-warriors:

  • God-Eternal Oketra make huge 4/4 zombie warrior tokens on every warrior cast.

  • Oketra the True make warrior tokens and acts as a big beater itself.
  • Oketra's Monument tons and tons of warrior tokens.
  • Rush of Battle warrior themed overrun that gains you tons of life.
  • Herald of Anafenza gets bigger and makes warrior tokens at the same time.
  • Raiders' Spoils probably the best card draw you'll see for warrior tribal.
  • Gilt-Leaf Ambush elf warrior tokens with sometimes deathtouch.
  • Hunting Triad elf warrior tokens or modal +1/+1 counters.
  • Presence of Gond give a creature a tap for elf warrior token ability.
  • Lovisa Coldeyes more warrior lord buffs!
  • Obsidian Battle-Axe haste and auto-attach to warriors equipment!
  • Regna, the Redeemer and Krav, the Unredeemed act as a sac outlet and warrior token generation combo.
  • Lord Windgrace deck filtering, color fixing, and generation of a ton of cat warrior tokens
  • Great Hall of Starnheim gets you a 4/4 angel warrior token in a pinch
  • Base Camp cheap 5 color land for warriors
  • Starnheim Unleashed make a ton of 4/4 angel warrior tokens!
  • Emeria's Call  Flip make angel warrior tokens and give your non-angel warriors indestructible or make it a land
  • Ascent of the Worthy pretty fun tricks on this.
  • Firja's Retribution make a 4/4 angel warrior token and give angels destroy and double strike.
  • Battle for Bretagard make warrior tokens, then make copies.
  • Massacar on Avendesora and the False Dragon

    Personally, I would be a little concerned about your overall CMC with how little in the way of ramp you're running, but I also don't know what kind of power level this is meant to compete at.

    Personally, I would cut out at least Scourge of Nel Toth , Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis , and Champion of Stray Souls replace them with lands. Lower your CMC a smidgeon and increase the likelihood of hitting the lands you need to play in the first place.
