Obsidian Battle-Axe Discussion

smackder on Axe's ONLY Club!

KingKilvas Thanks for your suggestions! I'm not sure why I hadn't already included Liege of the Axe, but he's in the list now. I also added Stonebrow, Krosan Hero. I initially thought he wouldn't fit the deck since I don't have many trample creatures, but in review he's a decent creature without having many other trample creatures. I've also included Obsidian Battle-Axe and Relic Axe since I have enough warriors to justify this, however the other axe equipment i've seen aren't that great sadly.

Thanks again.

Some equipment you could add: Obsidian Battle-Axe, Relic Axe, Amorphous Axe, Marauder's Axe, Murderer's Axe, and probably the best if you lean into these, Bearded Axe.

For creatures, Liege of the Axe, Stonebrow, Krosan Hero, and Boggart Loggers seem like worthy includes.

Fun bonus option, Burden of Guilt doesn't feature an axe, but gives the vibe of shaming people for not using axes.

Hero's Blad would work. There are multiple cards with a similar trigger:

Obsidian Battle-Axe

Veteran's Armaments

Cloak and Dagger

Thornbite Staff

Diviner's Wand

With a Maskwood Nexus , Multani could trigger any of these.

Cheers, it's a work in progress, but already serving its purpose. I had inherited a bulk of common cards, and had Goblin Gaveleer 's on hand, so expanded on that idea into a no-frills warrior themed deck, aimed at some kitchen table casual play. The supporting characters give the Gavaleer party first and double-strike, which tends to protect against early creature threats as the arsenal grows.

I might assemble the deck a little differently if I had more cards on hand — I'd like to squeeze the efficiency of the early start and see Naya Panorama replaced with something like Battlefield Forge . And while the equipment costs seem to work so far, I might splash out for some Shuko cards and take advantage of the zero equipment cost so I can shuffle it around characters when needed, or toss it onto an incoming warrior with haste once Obsidian Battle-Axe is in play.

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.

    Normally in a goblin deck, I'd just suggest running my lords like Goblin King , Goblin Chieftain , etc., and adding more copies of goodstuff like Goblin Grenade and Goblin Chainwhirler . However, to preserve the multiple tribe theme, I think focusing on warrior synergy would be the best idea. A good percentage of your creatures are already warriors and Blood-Chin Fanatic looks like one of the stronger cards in the deck.

    Base Camp , Blood-Chin Rager , Kargan Intimidator , Boldwyr Intimidator , Lovisa Coldeyes , Obsidian Battle-Axe , and Raiders' Spoils are some warrior tribal cards in Rakdos, and Chief of the Edge , Chief of the Scale , Arashin Foremost , Herald of Dromoka , Kargan Warleader , and Mardu Woe-Reaper also apply when dipping into Mardu. I know most of these cards are just humans though, so here are some good warriors that fall under the goblinoid umbrella: Bloodmark Mentor , Goblin Bushwhacker , Goblin Cratermaker , Goblin Piledriver , Goblin Rabblemaster , Goblin Trashmaster , Krenko, Mob Boss , Pashalik Mons , Reckless Bushwhacker , Battle Brawler , Brutal Hordechief , Zurgo Bellstriker , Kazuul's Toll Collector , Ogre Battledriver , and Furystoke Giant . Which of these cards is best definitely depends on what your primary strategy is.

    Anyway, good luck with your deck!

    I would replace the Obsidian Battle-Axe with something that provides First Strike on your deathtouchers.

    Wrap in Vigor and Vigor , maybe Vhati il-Dal to keep your guys alive

    Before worrying about sideboarding, I'd focus on getting the main down to 60 cards. The closer you are to the minimum deck size, the more likely it is you'll draw the best cards in your deck. In this case, it looks like you want to build a party deck with Haktos the Unscarred as one of the bombs. The first thing I'd do is identify which cards are actively working towards that end or are particularly efficient. If something doesn't fit those descriptions, cut it. If it does, try to acquire multiple copies of it. For example, Gore Swine isn't doing anything here that a party member couldn't do better, so I'd remove it. Compare that to Expedition Champion who has more stats for the same cost and actively synergizes with the warrior theme, so having 4 of him wouldn't be bad. You can apply that logic to the entire deck. Practiced Tacticsis better than Sandblast. Suspension Field is more cost effective than Skybind. And so on.

    After thinning the deck to its strongest options, then I'd focus on upgrades. Seek out other decks with similar goals and see what they're running. You can then endeavor to purchase the best cards you see in such examples, budget permitting. I don't know much about Boros party, but a quick search revealed Archpriest of Iona, Grotag Bug-Catcher, Stonework Packbeast, Squad Commander, Journey to Oblivion, Kargan Intimidator, Luminarch Aspirant, Relic Axe, Goma Fada Vanguard, Robber of the Rich, Tazri, Beacon of Unity, Fissure Wizard, and Seasoned Hallowblade, and that's only looking at standard. Modern brings even more options, particularly for Boros warriors. Arashin Foremost, Boros Reckoner, Mardu Woe-Reaper, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Obsidian Battle-Axe, Grim Lavamancer, Jeering Instigator, Fire-Belly Changeling, Grand Abolisher, Mirror Entity, Bygone Bishop, and Selfless Spirit all come to mind.
