Could I offer an additional requirement? In addition to the random commander, add two random cards that work in that color identity and use them in a subtheme. This way, if someone hits Atraxa, Praetors' Voice or Kenrith, the Returned King or another popular commander, it's not quite so easy to just copy a deck.

I got Lovisa Coldeyes. The easy way to go here is Warrior tribal, with some interesting Barbarians and Berserkers to fill it out. Brighthearth Banneret, Kargan Intimidator, and Arni Brokenbrow will probably all find a home here. Give it some Viking thematic love and lean in hard to Ice Age, Coldsnap, and Kaldheim.

If I add two random cards, I got Extraplanar Lens and Trumpet Blast. Trumpet blast goes for go-wide aggro, so that's kind of where this deck wants to be. Lens could add a subtheme around ramp, but I'm going to go with Mountains matter and add Koth of the Hammer, Siege of Towers, and Earth Servant.

Omniscience_is_life - As much as I adore Kargan Intimidator, and have been interested in building a pseudo-warriors tribal deck including him, I’m not sure this is the place for him, because my other warriors: Pelt Collector & Gruul Spellbreaker already have trample. I do wonder if maybe he has a place in modern with Wild Nacatl? I’m also hesitant of Adorned Pouncer, only because it doesn’t grow my 1-drops on curve. Maybe an Embercleave deserves a slot though?

I really appreciate your attention brought to Ghor-Clan Rampager and your suggestion of replacing it with CoCo. I’m surprised I didn’t think of it myself, lol. Thank you so much for your feedback!

I have exactly zero experience with Pioneer, but I like what you're doing here from a commander perspective!

Since I have such little knowledge of the format, you ought to take all my suggestions with several grains of salt; but here's what I've got:

I wonder if Fleecemane Lion is worthy of a playset--would a Kargan Intimidator (can give Pelt Collector trample!), or Adorned Pouncer (also a cat lol, and works well w/Ghor-Clan Rampager) be a worthy replacement?

Speaking of Ghor-Clan Rampager (albeit the first mention was parenthetical, but surely it counts!), I don't love it as a 4-of--so much mana, even if it can be activated for cheaper. A few Collected Company could reeeaally help give this deck some gas, and that seems like it would take the same slot given mana cost.

Glad to see people playing non-commander formats, it can get a little stale with just that sometimes ;3

Golgari Processing Plant

Land (Mythic Rare)

Golgari Processing Plant enters the battlefield tapped.

, Sacrifice another permanent: Add , , or .

, , Sacrifice Golgari Processing Plant, exile your graveyard: Create a 1/1 black and green Worm creature token for each creature card exiled this way, create a 0/1 green Plant creature token for each land card exiled this way, and create a 1/1 black Rat creature token for each noncreature, nonland card exiled this way.


I'd like to see a card which cares about those three creature types. In any way. Elite Inquisitor , Kaalia of the Vast , Power Word Kill , Animal Sanctuary , Swarmyard , and Boldwyr Intimidator / Kargan Intimidator all show permutations of different multi-tribes, for reference.

Hello, Sorin_Markov_1947,

Sorry for the late reply, but Kargan Intimidator most definitively remove all creature type while turning the creature into a coward, otherwise it would say "...coward in addition to its other types" like for Demonic Embrace . Please do some research or testing on MTGA before correcting others.

DanMcSharp Kargan Intimidator 's coward ability does not remove creature types, so any creature he targets will still be a human, it will just also be a coward.

I'm not the best with Winota decks, I couldn't tell you what ratio is best, but it seems like there are too many humans (payoffs) and not enough non-humans (enablers). Goldspan Dragon is a very good card to include, Selfless Savior protects Winota and counts as a non-human, Basri's Lieutenant is a human but a good one to hit, and Alseid is an alternative to Selfless Savior if you'd prefer.

There are plenty of low-power hits in here, but I totally understand just wanting to play cards that look cool!

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.

    Hello,

    I don't think there's many scenarios, if any, where you'll be happy to play a 2/1 for 2 to eventually get a 2/1 for 3 if you attack. You should remove all 4 Fearless Liberator and instead add 4 Kargan Intimidator . It's easy to miss, but he can target your own humans (or himself) to make them "cowards" (and no longer human) to trigger Winota, Joiner of Forces .

    Usually decks that run Winota, Joiner of Forces don't play planeswalker because more often than not you'll see them when you miss with Winota, Joiner of Forces 's trigger and then they'll spend the rest of the game under the library. Your high cost cards should normally be cards that she can cheat into play. Either way, Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast won't achieve much either because you have a wide variety of different CMC creatures to hit with him, he's normally played in decks with only giant creatures and token generators so he always hits good.

    I wish I knew how to make good use of Victory's Envoy because she seems fun, but in reality she's a 3/3 that does nothing when she comes into play. If you're going off with Winota, Joiner of Forces hey ability probably won't even come into play, and even if it does, chances are you still would've been better off with any other big hitter instead. You would surely do much better if you just added a 2nd copy of your big legendary dudes like Kenrith, the Returned King and Haktos the Unscarred .

    Btw, I'm not sure if you know but Taranika, Akroan Veteran will not trigger if she's put into play by Winota, Joiner of Forces because then she's already attacking, so she's not a great hit either. She would shine more in a deck that plays small stuff with keywords like Healer's Hawk or even Alseid of Life's Bounty .

    Cheers.
