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.

    looking at tayam i see three (3) things that tickle my fancy

    1) "each other creature you control" means tokens are fair game

    2) "remove three counters from among" means all counters are fair game, and they don't have to be on the same card

    3) "CMC 3 or less" means value dorks!

    this makes me think that cards like Herald of Anafenza for counters/tokens/more counters; Ammit Eternal for a steady supply of counters, pairs well w/cards like Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons / Flourishing Defenses ; or maybe even Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip and other value-ogres are more viable than the heavy-hitters at the top of the curve?

    Played about 4 games now and some changes were made let me know what you think...
    The following were added: Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Soul Warden, Aetherflux Reservoir, Sun Titan, Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Ajani's Pridemate, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Smothering Tithe, Soul's Attendant, Suture Priest, Flawless Maneuver, Altar of the Pantheon.

    In replacement of the following; Skybind, Gerrard's Battle Cry, Daybreak Coronet, Consecrate Land, Celestial Dawn, Order of Leitbur, Glittering Lion, Clergy of the Holy Nimbus, Order of the White Shield, Brightling, Herald of Anafenza, and Knight of the Holy Nimbus

    Celestial Dawn was hard to remove, but i was unsure how it worked with Blood Moon or Emeria, The Sky Ruin. So let me know your thoughts. I went more life gain, but it keeps me around a bit longer. With most of the creatures being low powered unless pumped up by other creatures, something was needed Sun Titan gets things back the mana cost for most critters is 3 or under. and if titan doesnt work or is removed Emeria, the sky ruin gets him back. Sun Titan and Kami of False Hope is so fun.

    Shagoth Let me know what you think, its early in the process. i am interested in y

    Brutal_B, Hey Thanks for checking in and making suggestions! I appreciate it! Good catch on the extra Herald of Anafenza , and my bad for not adding the commander. I was planning on using Odric, Lunarch Marshal which is why I have so many creatures with added abilities. I don't have the other Odric, or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite . I used to have a sick foil copy of elesh, but I had to sell it a while back. If I can track one down I'll pick it up and stuff it in. I like your land choices, I think I might have the Idyllic Grange , I'll have to check, and I do not have the Emeria, The Sky Ruin or the Isolated Watchtower but I'm sure I can find a Rogue's Passage somewhere. I'm currently looking to make cuts to the deck and thin it down to a Hundo. If you have any other thoughts I'd appreciate the feedback, Thanks!

    You have 2x Herald of Anafenza and no Odric. Which one are you using? I'm guessing it's Odric, Master Tactician ?

    Some lands with considering: Emeria, The Sky Ruin , Idyllic Grange , Isolated Watchtower , Rogue's Passage .

    What do you think of slotting in Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite ? I know she's mana spendy but if you could get her out early or cheat her out, or just a late game drop, that would snuff out goblins on the spot. Just something to think about...

    all of your lands enter tapped, which makes it kind of slow for the CMC of your creatures. to replace Stroke of Genius you could add Blue Sun's Zenith or Braingeyser . Herald of Anafenza is a token creator with outlast. Abzan Ascendancy puts counters on all your creatures to make them get the benefits of Abzan Battle Priest and Abzan Falconer . if you want more things with outlast that benefit all your creatures Ainok Bond-Kin , Mer-Ek Nightblade , Tuskguard Captain , Longshot Squad . those are options, not what will necessarily make your deck better.

    No, you don't.

    Activated abilities are any abilities written as "(Cost) : (Effect)," while triggered abilities are any abilities that begin with "when," "whenever," or "at." All others are static abilities.

    Herald of Anafenza has two abilities: an activated ability (Outlast; look at the reminder text) and a triggered ability (begins with "Whenever"). Necrotic Ooze has activated abilities, but not triggered abilities.

    So Necrotic Ooze would read as though it has the Herald's Outlast ability, but it would not have the triggered ability, and it is the triggered ability that creates the 1/1 Warrior.

    Not quite sure how the interaction with Herald of Anafenza and Necrotic Ooze goes. If you use the Nooze to outlast, do you get the 1/1 Warrior?
