Viashino Sandsprinter over Viashino Sandscout. It costs more, but is the same creature only stronger, and can be cycled if advantageous.

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.

    My mistake, I meant to stick them in the maybe board.

    Actually, I think you’re completely correct about eliminating the Sandsprinter’s entirely—-I had originally selected them because of the trample damage, figuring it might be useful the turn they come into play. But that’s mistakenly assuming they’d need to use trample to get some damage past blockers, when Living End wipes the board. No blockers equals no need for trample. So you’re categorically correct; Bloodbraid Elf is called in and Viashino Sandsprinter is ejected from the game. Thanks for the help, sergiodelrio!

    This is a pretty good deck. I can't believe you managed to build a budget version of the classic Living End deck!

    Aside from adding a sideboard, the only thing I would do to improve the deck would be to take out the four Viashino Sandsprinters for four Bloodbraid Elfs.

    @M_Malcom I didn’t like Viashino Sandsprinter at first I just threw him in because he fit the theme, but the fact that I can cycle him, Unearth him, and get him back into my hand to cycle again or keep using as a beater is just too good to pass up. Maybe there’s another card Hell's Thunder can replace though.
