Sunseed Nurturer seems out of place and not very good

I like Norin and all the ETB effects - you could consider maybe putting in some of the Soul Sisters Soul's Attendant and Soul Warden for more etb payoff and upping the norin count. You could put these in if you cut Sunseed, Trueheart duelist, and Mangara.

Deck feels light on removal. You have many good options in RW, like Lightning Bolt and Path to Exile maindeck, and Rip Apart/Wear / Tear sideboard.

Speaking of the sideboard, it looks super iffy. Magus of the Moat sucks because you have no flying creatures? Relying on Angelic gift does not seem good. I would cut both. Usher of the Fallen is also pretty mediocre. I'd put in some more hate cards in the sb like grave hate, artifact and enchantment hate, tron hate, etc.

TheoryCrafter on Elspeth Token Surge

The standard hub you had on this deck left me a little confused because most of your cards are not standard legal. If you want a standard Elspeth deck for FNM, May I suggest any combination of Elspeth, Sun's Champion, The Birth of Meletis and Inquisitive Puppet? Also you may want to consider instants and sorceries that create creature tokens including, but not limited to, Emeria's Call  Flip, Mascot Exhibition and Starnheim Unleashed? If you decide to go this route I completely concur on Razelfark's suggestions of Omen of the Sun and Rally the Ranks. All of these (except for Rally the Ranks) will help to feed your graveyard to feed Elspeth's escape ability. Usher of the Fallen's boast ability can help the create creature tokens. Maskwood Nexus andTeam Pennant will help to make the deck feel more like soldier and token tribals, respectively. This all should give you a foundation for a Standard legal Elspeth Deck until Innistrad: Hunter's Moon is released.

If, However, you prefer a format without rotation, then I'd suggest any combination of Oath of Gideon to create tokens and loyalty counters and Nomads' Assembly for a cheaper and more reusable option to Deploy to the Front.

I hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

As more cards are added to the game of Magic, each bearing the modern design philosophy that urge them to be relevant in near to all formats, there comes the time for a player to edit their decks.

I shall confess that I primarily dwell in the realm of Commander, but this is an argument that can be made for all methods of casting spellls. (Mostly Commander)

Within each set is a card that is fated to find a home in a specific archetype, yet this entails that another piece of the machine is removed. I have a mono-black discard deck built around Chainer , but they have since printed Tinybones , Tergrid  Flip, and Tourach . Each of these are more potent in the command zone, but Chainer is closer to my twisted heart and nocent at shackling my foes.

I have a Naya-lands list around Hazezon Tamar , but they have put forth into the world, Zacama and Obuun , but Hazezon offers nostalgia and tokens.

This especially pertains to the list below the commander, such as Murderous Rider over Hero's Downfall , Fierce Guardianship over Counterspell , Usher of the Fallen over Savannah Lions , and the list goes on for eternity. I enjoy adding asinine old artifacts to lists (see: Temporal Aperture and Phyrexian Portal ), yet felt as if I had no choice but to cut Moonring Mirror for Sevylun .

My query of this thread is when do players feel obliged to cut cards from lists despite any strong emotions towards maintaining their inclusion? When can the poignant piece of cardboard at last meet anguish? When does power eclipse pet?

Note: This is not a question of whether it is correct or not to snuff the asinine spell. Optimization is a separate topic than what is meant to be discussed here.

I like Glorious Protector as a card, Reidane, God of the Worthy  Flip is good too, Sigrid, God-Favored is good as well. I think there are a handful of aggressive white cards that seem worth playing as well - Usher of the Fallen for one. I like the Angel sub-theme too but that's playing a cheekier deck for sure. Not sold on Halvar, God of Battle  Flip although I'm sure it's good in some cases.

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.
  • ItsMeJax on Orzhov Warriors

    TheRoaringRegisaur Sorry for the late response and thanks for the complement. Honestly I was waiting for cards like Usher of the Fallen and Rally the Ranks to come out.
