You may sacrifice a Mountain rather than pay Downhill Charge's mana cost.

Target creature gets +X/+0 until end of turn, where X is the number of Mountains you control.

griffstick thanks!! It's not among my top 5 favorites yet, but maybe after playing it some it will be!

Think of Heightened Reflexes as a Reflexes but at instant speed. I really value first-strike because it makes Falthis the best blocker around and a protected attacker if need be. Downhill Charge and Mercadia's Downfall are nice but there's no guarantee I can get them to +5, which is the magic number. I have Sadistic Glee. Mirage Mirror is such a cool card and I'll probably throw it in, yeah.

No worries on the triple post! I'm glad you like the deck and have suggestions! Thank you!

Daedalus19876 Thanks! Do it!

Maybe Downhill Charge it free. Or Mercadia's Downfall

You might want to run Sadistic Glee

linkzero Well, this is a bit awkward. Valakut was in an earlier iteration of the deck, but it wound up getting cut because I felt that the land entering tapped was too slow, as this deck keeps a lot of 2-land hands and we want to topdeck something with immediate use. In fact, Myriad Landscape is the only tapped land I feel comfortable running, as it ramps me well enough to mitigate all of the tapped lands.

Mana Geyser was also in an earlier version of the deck, but I wound up cutting it because it wasn't getting me the mana I needed. I thought that the slot would be better served by more ramp, in the form of Arcane Signet, which was new at the time.

I only had one slot for a Downhill Charge-type effect, because they aren't really very good. I chose to run Blazing Shoal because it's an Arcane spell, so if I get Shoal and Desperate Ritual in my hand, I can add for each creature I control.

Hey there, nice Zada list! I don't think there are too many suggestions I can make without slowing the deck down.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle takes up a land slot, and can do some incremental damage before you go off.

Mana Geyser is usually the ritual I go for in storm combo decks, although it's slower to initiate.

Downhill Charge is another win condition that I see a lot of in Zada lists, because of its alternate casting cost.

Here’s some decent pieces to both help with the war theme and make life difficult for your enemies.

Fumiko the Lowblood because samurai

Warmonger Hellkite makes creatures attack and can be pumped

Incite RebellionandDisrupt Decorum both have that sort of subterfuge, disrupt enemy lines feel to me.

Grand Melee because open war

Goblin Diplomats because diplomacy is needed in every war

Prowler's Helm like a spy slipping through their defenses.

Outpost Siege card advantage and siege is referenced.

Blackblade Reforged and Strata Scythe can both make varchild big after a bit of development. More survivors

Grenzo, Havoc Razor

Paragon of Fierce Defiance

Godo, Bandit Warlord and while you’re at it you could add Helm of the Host as an easy win

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell

Bloodsworn Steward

Archetype of Aggression

Dockside Extortionist because there is always people like that in war

Neheb, the Eternal is likely worth a spot.

Oni of Wild Places may not necessarily fit the theme but repeatedly bouncing varchild has its advantages

Signal Pest

Iron Myr for mana

Legion Warboss

Angrath's Marauders

Downhill Charge seems pretty good.

Fatal Frenzy and Mercadia's Downfall feel decent too.

Seize the Day is very war themed to me.

By Force implies hostilities

Burn at the Stake might be a big kill card after you’ve taken a bunch of survivors. 3 times the amount you tap gets huge quick.

World at War

Mizzium Mortars

Crawlspace so you can bottleneck their armies like Sparta did against the Persians lol.

Voyager Staff to remove varchild maybe?

That’s what stood out most to me with a quick glance through EDHRec. I’ll keep brainstorming for ya though!

I think that this deck would benefit greatly from having more cheap buff spells that boost power. Reckless Charge, Bloodlust, Blazing Shoal, Downhill Charge, Fatal Frenzy, and Rush of Blood come to mind.

Thank you, Xenerai! No, there's no ramp, but that's why I chose free spells like Downhill Charge and Set Yo A$$ On Fiaaaaah. So spells like Simian Spirit Guide and Grinning Ignus, or even just good 'ol Flaming Mana Ball, would be a welcome edition. Especially since I have to throw down 3 red every turn on recasting Squee. However, they don't fit the theme, and Throw-a-Squee-for-one is essential. I've thought about the possibilities of Performing a profane, demonic death ritual with the master of ceremonies as the prized, virgin victim. But, alas, if I kill him to make the mana, what am I using it to cast? So I don't know if I want to compromise.
