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.
  • Strangelove on WARriors

    Hi Shayda!!!

    Dude those dragons are doing so well (when no one wipes them)!

    Did you want a similar deck? 'Cuz that's what you've got here... but I think you should lean into go-wide-aggro > midrange and play more 1-2 cmc creatures and move all your ramp to 2 (Rampant Growth, signets, etc).

    I'd also recommend Golgari Charm, Boros Charm, and Heroic Intervention.

    Tribal decks have so much flavor! Hope this helps, maybe we'll see it next weekend? :o

    okay, a few things-first, TypicalTimmy, Parhelion II and Mardu Strike Leader don't help trigger battalion. Battalion triggers when creatures are declared as attackers. If a creature enters attacking, it was never declared as an attacker.


    hmm. a creature that shows progression through the golgari. lets try this:

    Rotsifter Recruit

    creature-human shaman

    whenever ~ enters the battlefield or attacks, put the top two cards of your library into your graveyard.

    as long as there are at least 5 cards in your graveyard, ~ gets +1/+1 and has deathtouch.

    As long as there are more cards in your graveyard than your library, ~ gets +3/+2, is a zombie in addition to its other types, and has menace and trample

    2/2


    I want to see a creature that is a situational Bogle, with Bogle in this instance meaning a 1-drop creature with hexproof. Either it is only sometimes a one-drop, or only sometimes a bogle.

    Oh, and Vanquisher's Banner is to expansive, exchange that for Samut, Voice of Dissent in my opinion you want more Haste enablers. Exchange Chief of the Scale for Rushblade Commander. Personally I was never sold on Jazal Goldmane, his activation is to expansive. I'd prefer Lovisa Coldeyes, also Bramblewood Paragon is really strong. Probably better than Mardu Strike Leader. Another fun extra/infinite Combat Card is Breath of Fury but it is a litte more hit or miss. Oh yea, and ignore my Champion of Lambholt comment, I didn't see it... Overall I think you need more Carddraw. All effects like Raiders' Wake and Bident of Thassa are quite strong in this deck. In the end its your choice and which Cards you already have or are prepared to pay for. Hope I could help.

    Blood-Chin Fanatic might be useful to push damage through blockers, although I can easily see it being too slow. Mardu Strike Leader is probably too slow as well. However, Goblin Rabblemaster is definitely worth testing.

    Hmmm, there are a bit of things you can add in as I tried playtesting it earlier and it definitely feels a bit clunky. Your goal is to make a lot of tokens and use them to kill people. You should focus more on value cards like i.e.

    Just to make some tokens while you are idle. And some kill effects like Triumph of the Hordes or effects like those. What is the main goal you want to do?

    Looks good! How has Phylactery Lich worked out? Your chance to have an artifact in hand by turn 3 is 33.6%, your chance of having one in play before turn 3 is half that, so the Lich might not be the most viable. Geralf's Messenger is a potential replacement though it is a bit pricey. Maybe one these instead? Dread Shade , Drana, Liberator of Malakir , Belle of the Brawl , Graveyard Marshal , Mardu Strike Leader .

    Also, I could be wrong but Bontu's Monument does not seem fantastic here. I think a beefy creature that applies pressure every turn would be better. Or maybe something like Supernatural Stamina ?
