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.
  • LeaPlath on SAPROLING_ARMY!!!

    So I would cut all the fist of ironwood, night soil, fungal, all the thalids except the draw ones and the free sacrifice ones. They are low impact. Slow and weak in commander.

    So an easy way to build a commander deck is the rule of 8s. You start with 38 lands. Then add 8 ramp sources, 8 pieces of removal, 8 hate cards, etc.

    Stuff to auto include. Nadier's Nightblade and Blood Artist. Ashnod's Altar. Skullclamp. The idea is you can generate a big army than sac them all off to kill everyone

    “I'm not terribly attached to it, though.”

    Unlike the Captain's Hook of course, my mistake ;)

    I just noticed (like the comment before me) you only run 33 lands (including mdfc). I try not to go below 38 lately and have noticed much less screw in doing so. Of course, 4-5 more cuts seems heavy, here’s some more suggestions though:

    • Fire Whip is cool with malcolm but fragile
    • Valakut Exploration is a way to “draw cards” but if you don’t run the lands to trigger it
    • Black Market you don’t really have a sink for this mana, so where will you put it? It will charge up naturally over time but optimistically this gives you 1 mana by turn 5 and 3 or 4 by turn 7 in my experience

    Have you played the deck yet? How was Nadier's Nightblade? At first i thought “why” but it’s a decent wincon with all the treasures!

    After looking again - drain with Nadier's Nightblade, and draw Cards with Costly Plunder, Reprocess, and God-Eternal Bontu!
