ShiningEyes on juggling the health

Hiya! So a couple things One, enjoy playing casual. There's no need to actively push to change your deck if you don't want to. Two, welcome! Mtg is a blast, and I've been playing over 20 years now.

Now into actual feedback.

In Mtg, there are a couple of balancing acts a deck needs to perform. One of the most challenging ones for a new player to embrace is the idea of a Mana Curve. This is a much-praised concept that effectively says you want to be doing something on most turns of the game, and that generally you want to be doing the best stuff you can in a turn. This deck is missing 1-mana cards, and is running a lot of 5-6 mana cards for a deck that isn't trying to stop your opponent along the way. Here's some budget, casual low drops that I think you might really enjoy! Lightning Bolt is a classic card, and due to some recent reprints is currently a bargain at about $.50 per copy. On the creature side, you might consider Vampire Lacerator, since you've listed your goal as making bigger creatures than your opponents. Or, if raw damage potential is of more interest, you might consider Night Market Lookout.

Your removal cards, currently mostly sorceries, have solid upsides and also cost a lot of mana. You might find more success looking for a nimbler option. To keep things casual and also really high-quality, consider Terminate. Or, if planeswalkers are a problem for you, consider the similarly inexpensive and quality card Hero's Downfall.

Another balancing act that decks perform is consistency vs. utility. The fewer cards that are the same or have the same effect your deck is running, the less likely your deck is to play the same way from one game to the next. That said, if you play a bunch of copies of the same card (4 is the limit in a typical casual 60-card format), your deck will get to do the same game plan each game, but is likelier to run into a wall if your opponent is doing something particularly good against your strategy. Currently, your deck is really high variability, which is generally considered frustrating in a 60-card format. If you love that concept, look into the Rules of Commander. It's a popular casual format that encourages variability by saying anything other than a basic land, you may only have one copy in your deck.

There's also the challenge of balancing a theme, sometimes also called a tribe. Some decks run the best cards they have available. Others try to build around a particular theme, and make that theme run as smoothly as possible. The up and downsides here are much like with consistency, where the harder you commit to your theme the more likely it is to work, but also the more likely you are to run into problems you can't solve with the tools available to you. Right now, the deck is a little scattered. For example, Maze Abomination is particularly good when a creature is two or more colors. But you don't appear to be running any creatures that are two or more colors, so its upside isn't very helpful. What you do seem to have is a budding Sacrifice theme, often known as Aristocrats, a nickname derived from the card Falkenrath Aristocrat. To lean a little harder into that theme, I might recommend looking at Body Dropper, a recent common to get some more reward for your sacrificing. Blood Aspirant is very similar. Butcher Ghoul is a great low-drop creature that can be sacrificed multiple times. Rekindling Phoenix Does a similar thing, but on a bigger, flying creature. Blazing Hellhound is a solid mid-sized creature with a pretty good upside. If you're looking for a big beater that can win games, consider something like Demonlord of Ashmouth or Titan Hunter. What's the downside to running a lot of sacrifice effects? Well, cards like Yasharn, Implacable Earth can really slow down your whole deck until you find that Terminate or similar. As a new player, I wouldn't worry too much about this. Play your theme, play it to your heart's content, and worry about how your opponent is going to stop you once you have some more games under your belt.

Welcome to the game! There's a lot you can learn. Try to have patience with yourself as you discover your own favorite way to build decks and play. Feel free to ask any questions you have.

Well Coretapper and Magistrate's Scepter is a win con, I didn't want to focus on it because there are many other ways to win by bringing back Avenger of Zendikar once or twice, or sacrificing a ton of stuff to Carrion Feeder, Defiant Salvager, Fallen Angel and Ravenous Gigantotherium. Kessig Cagebreakers and Titan Hunter can rack up damage quite quick too. For this reason I don't think the excessive amount of mana rocks are necessary but some of the tors you included I may work on implementing such as Final Parting because it gets me both Coretapper and Magistrate's Scepter and Wishclaw Talisman because it has a chance to to that. Maybe some of the others if I find cards to replace

Last, the cuts. Fellwar Stone was replaced by a more reliable signet. Outpost Siege was just too clunky compared to similar effects. Titan Hunter and Crimson Honor Guard proved too unreliable at triggering for their mana cost. Charging Tuskodon died because my five drops needed trimming and he's too much of a glass cannon. Cleansing Nova has been replaced by more efficient options. It's modal use rarely came up compared to its clunky mana cost. Ruin Raider has proven to be much more effective at killing me than providing card advantage. Curse of Stalked Prey was fun, but often too low value compared to a signet or equipment. A shame, as I really like the card. Finally, Rite of the Raging Storm and Xantcha, Sleeper Agent weren't used well. Giving my opponents creatures does not guarantee they will use them the way I want. Better to give their existing creatures options, to make it seem like it's more their idea.

You could be interested in Ruinous Ultimatum.

And i think, if you're playing with BW-colours Damn is more flexible than Damnation or Wrath of God Bastion of Remembrance would fit perfectly into the plan, too. Even though he does not produce humans, the Synergy of Xathrid Necromancer in this deck wold be enormous! And Titan Hunter performed in our meta extremly well.

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.

    Labone I'll preface this by saying I have not quite developed this deck to its fullest potential. My casual playgroup finds this deck very frustrating to play against in the casual meta, so I've abandoned it for now unfortunately.

    For the planeswalker, Vraska the Unseen was originally in Garruk, Cursed Huntsman's spot. I choose Garruk for two reasons: he has card draw attached to removal which can net two two cards per dead creature when combined with Chevill. And secondly I simply like the theme of Garruk better. Any Vraska would still be a good addition, but I would personally not use Vraska, Swarm's Eminence for reasons I will explain below.

    This is not a deathtouch tribal deck, this is a removal tribal deck. The difference being that this deck values simple removal spells such as Doom Blade over good deathtouch creatures such as Vampire Nighthawk.

    From the cards you mentioned: Hooded Blightfang, Leyline Prowler, Vampire Nighthawk, Poison-Tip Archer, Ochran Assassin, Hornet Queen, Archetype of Finality, Gifted Aetherborn are all deathtouch creatures. While they are good creatures on their own, they are not the focus of this deck so they are left out for lower CMC removal spells.

    Titan Hunter isn't a bad idea, lifedrain is a viable win condition for this deck.

    Twinblade Assassins: Essentially a worse Deathreap Ritual. It would be a good add if the deck was in need for more draw, but I'm okay with the amount of draw this deck currently has.

    Ravenous Chupacabra: A very mana inefficient removal spell. Without any recursion in the deck to make it shine, it doesn't stand up to the many 2 drop removal spells.

    Royal Assassin isn't bad, but it is very conditional. I would rather go for a Stronghold Assassin or something else that has no conditions.

    Hope this helps.

    KibaAlpha true, but then I can't use coin counters with Athreos, Shroud-Veiled, and that is part of the value engine. Luminous Broodmoth will make it into the list as soon as I get my copy in the mail, though, along with Bastion of Remembrance. I also ordered a copy of Verge Rangers and Titan Hunter too, and am also considering a copy of Lurrus of the Dream-Den (it's really good but I'm not sure if I want that many reanimation abilities that might take the place of something else that is also needed. As it stands now I have a very good amount of graveyard playability, so we'll see once I get the cards in hand and tinker a bit.

    Probably put Titan Hunter in with Grismold, the Dreadsower.
