Raiders' Spoils


Creatures you control get +1/+0.

Whenever a Warrior you control deals combat damage to a player, you may pay 1 life. If you do, draw a card.

Personally I would drop Iroas, God of Victory and put Cover of Darkness as it is one of the best cards out there for evasion. I would also suggest adding Nature's Lore as it can find an untapped forest. Also depending on your meta I might suggest that you drop Raiders' Spoils for a Rest in Peace

Hey, consider Warriors with Zurgo as Commander and Aurelia, the Warleader at the top of the mana curve?

There's many budget Warriors. Some that stand out are Mindblade Render , Rushblade Commander , Alesha, Who Smiles at Death , Ash Zealot , Bloodsoaked Champion , Blood-Chin Rager , Blood-Chin Fanatic , Arashin Foremost , Brutal Hordechief , Azra Oddsmaker ,etc. Aurelia is not a Warrior, but she can come into play after Zurgo for big double combat phases swings. Some budget pay offs for being tribal are: Raiders' Spoils , Shared Animosity , Obsidian Battle-Axe , Blood-Chin Fanatic , Arashin Foremost , Metallic Mimic , etc.

Zurgo benefits a lot from repeatable double strike being able to potentially do 14 or more points of Commander damage with one Zurgo attack. Arashin Foremost , Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder , Duelist's Heritage , Fireshrieker , Ajani, Caller of the Pride . Boros Charm is also an excellent card in Commander.

Recommended Cuts


Blightsteel Colossus - Curve reasons

Graveblade Marauder - Cute but effect probably isn't good enough

Hamletback Goliath - Curve reasons

Khenra Eternal - Bad card basically. Though we want this slot to be at that mana cost

Khenra Scrapper - Again. We want aggressive cards like this but we can do better

Saskia the Unyielding - Big target on your head. Colour intensive. Not a warrior

Savage Knuckleblade - Colour intensive

Taurean Mauler - Doesn't work towards our game plan. Doesn't trigger off combat damage doesn't buff others.

Tenacious Dead - Just bad

Tolsimir Wolfblood - Buff isn't universal and its expensive

Zhur-Taa Druid - We want mana dorks. But only taps for green and its colour intensive to cast.

Maybe Cuts Or Later Cuts

Thunderfoot Baloth - Expensive but ok effect.

Hellkite Charger - Maybe cut. We already have access to this effect at cheaper cost

Zurgo Helmsmasher - He's good. But doesn't help the rest of the game plan


Maybe Cut

Clan Defiance - Doesn't impact the board enough to make us win the game.

Lavalanche - Effect we want but possible to find cheaper?


Fires of Yavimaya - Replace with Rhythm of the Wild


Artifact Mutation && Aura Mutation - Change with generic artifact or enchantment removal

Crackling Doom - Doesn't do enough


Oketra's Monument - Doesn't trigger enough and the mana reduction isn't relevant enough


Attacking / Combat Matter Cards

Blood-Chin Rager - Warriors have Menace

Herald of Dromoka - Warriors have Vigilance

Chief of the Edge - Warriors get +1/+0

Raiders' Spoils - Very good card draw

Lovisa Coldeyes - Warriors +2/+2 Haste

Mindblade Render - MOAR card draw

Jazal Goldmane - Massive Buffs

Mardu Woe-Reaper - Graveyard Interaction

Thrasher Brute - Drains an opponent with warrior etb triggers

Edric, Spymaster of Trest - MOAR CARD DRAW

Combo Pieces

Cryptolith Rite - Lots of mana, infinite combats

Nature's Will - Win the game if you have the lands

Bear Umbra - Win the game if you have the lands


Archetype of Aggression - Trample

Purphoros, God of the Forge - This guy doesn't need explanation

Cyclonic Rift - ....yeh

Heroic Intervention - Anti-Wrath. Rootborn Defenses Dauntless Escort Join Shields

Divine Visitation - BECAUSE ANGELS

Harvest Season - we make a lot of tapped and attacking creatures. We want mana

Throne of the God-Pharaoh - Alternate win cons

Aven Wind Guide - Gives our tokens flying and vigilance

FenrisBurgess This was a previously a Neheb, the Worthy deck and as with this deck was built with cards I have around at the time. Trial of Zeal and Raiders' Spoils were from the old deck that I kept as a way to get devotion and are some of the cards I will end up replacing when I get the cards (and money).

Blood Moon is used because a lot of my playgroup down here use quite a few non-basic lands.

The sacrifice cards are going to be helpful once I pick up a Revel in Riches to put in the deck.

The cards like Heartless Hidetsugu and a lot of the damage I take will balance out once I can find some life gain cards like Exquisite Blood to counteract my own life drain. On top of this, maybe finding a few cards to gain myself some life to stay ahead of the game

I do agree that this deck needs more work and some game ending cards. The only time I played this deck I did lose, but draining the life from my opponents was pretty fun.

Thank you for your feedback!

Curious as to why you have Trial of Zeal without a cartouche. I also don't see it being useful as it's a -drop enchantment that only does 3 damage, whereas a Lightning Bolt has the same effect for less. Now you may not want a lightning bolt specifically, so here's a link to that looks for cards with bolt in the name.

Raiders' Spoils is also questionable because I see you control a total of four warriors, meaning this cards second effect is almost entirely useless unless you can manage to get one of these four onto the battlefield and manage to do combat damage. Only two warriors have afflict, so I don't see this being entirely useful to you.

  • I don't see how Blood Moon helps you.

  • You have quite a few cards in here that force you to sacrifice a creature along with your opponent's. This can be good if you have nothing on the field, but is detrimental to you if you do, and you have almost no graveyard retrieval.

  • On top of this, a lot of cards do damage to you as a result of their effects. Heartless Hidetsugu, for example, takes away half your health along with your opponent, and with your deck which relies on damaging yourself in order to get some semblance of card advantage, you're putting them ahead.

  • This deck is countered by:

  • Discard
  • Mill (obviously)
  • Burn
  • Itself

  • I think you're going for an aggro-burn deck, but you also want it to be sacrifice-control deck. You gotta choose one.

  • The losing one life for card advantage is fine, but most of your cards for that have circumstantial effects, like Asylum Visitor. It's unlikely someone is going to run out of cards in their hand often unless you're running a discard deck or they're playing low cost cards only.
  • Try to pick a specific type of creature you want your deck based around. It allows you to boost that type of creature more effectively, and there are some card effects that only work if you have certain creature types. You might want to try demons.
  • Your land is fine. I recommend Cinder Barrens for another special land.
  • Your deck could benefit from more artifacts.
  • Definitely needs more work.

aliceous2 on 5 Color Fast Boiis (Najeela Warrior Tribal EDH)

i saw the deck, it looked spicy, so i tried a few playtests to see how it played. there were a few times when i was at zero lands open hand until a mull to 4. also, could use some more card draw. 5 sources, and two are slightly higher price those being Raiders' Spoils and Kindred Discovery . A bit more ramp. In five colors, you need a decent amount of ramp to get your 5 colors. i also think Steely Resolve doesnt work well, because then your Najeela, the Blade-Blossom cant interact with them well, as well as with things like Metallic Mimic. Shroud just is not awesome. Maybe something like Phyrexian Arena and Vanquisher's Banner could help, and things like Rampant Growth and Sakura-Tribe Elder would work great. overall pretty good list. i would love to bring a list like this to my group game night, with some improvements. nice build.

DemonDragonJ Nope!

They support both mediums about the same, so if they have 2 ways of templating something, they will now do it they more digital-friendly way. This is a fairly recent change, as Raiders' Spoils from Khans was templated in the way you had.

An interesting side note is that now these abilities are more susceptible to Stifle and Voidslime and the like
