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.
  • Shabompistan on Master of puppieS

    How about Wolfir Avenger ? Not bad for a 3 drop wolf.

    I love wolves, but I'm seeing WotC move in the direction of wolf/elf hybrid tribal, and I am not convinced that it could be as strong as a pure-wolf or pure-elf tribal deck. But it's worth a shot. On the wolf tribal side, Feed the Pack would be a great inclusion, as many of your non-wolf non-elf creatures already have high toughness, allowing you to trade out your Wolfbriar Elemental for four 2/2 wolves, or your Juniper Order Ranger for five wolves. Young Wolf is also a good thought, because although it is only a 1/1, it does come back to life after a board wipe, and flies under the radar of your opponents' kill spells (no one will want to waste a kill spell or ability on this guy, and if they do, that's good for you), allowing you to keep him until you lay out your +1/+1 (or +3/+3) effects. Silverfur Partisan is almost a must... Briarpack Alpha is a good thought, since you can get that +2/+2 at instant speed and gain yourself another blocker, potentially surprise-killing two attackers. Somberwald Alpha is also another thought, because although its triggered ability is meh, its activated ability is clutch to getting lots of damage through your opponents' chump-blockers. There are a good deal of wolves with flash for that purpose too... Wolfir Avenger and Spirit of the Hunt also, at a decent mana cost considering they have flash. Darkthicket Wolf doesn't have flash but it does give you an ability in case you're running out of cards in your hand, and is a good option for budget decks. That's for if you want more nontoken wolves for to go in the direction of wolf-tribal. Otherwise, the Feed the Pack is the only essential inclusion, since you're already buffing tokens with Intangible Virtue . To that end, I should also mention Predator's Howl , although it's kind of high in mana-cost, this is commander after all, so you should be able to pull it off with some mana rocks or land enchantments. Don't forget to leave a space in this deck for some of War of the Spark's new wolves and elves. I'm sure you've seen Arlinn's Wolf (meh) and Arlinn, Voice of the Pack (alright!) and Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves . I would think that latter card would be an auto-include for this deck, if not as commander, than as a one-of. Cheers!

    Funkydiscogod,
    That's the best kind of brainstorming, for sure!

    I'm not sure about Boomerang either ... it's very good with Shocklands, but I'm not sure the tempo hit on a normal land is big enough to justify it. Thanks tons for the other bounce options, but if I find it's too weak, I'll likely move to actual counters (e.g., a 2-2 split of Negate and Mana Leak ).

    I never realized we could Redirect an opponent's Cryptic Command ; that's spectacular! I'll keep it in mind for sure!

    Wolfir Avenger is cool, though it would likely drive me down the unfortunate path of a SUPER-jank deck, feat. Howlpack Resurgence , Spirit of the Hunt and Pack Guardian :-D

    I'd looked at Cloudthresher , but I don't think the effect is worth the mana cost, especially since I expect to periodically have Nimble Obstructionist and maybe Vendilion Clique (currently in the maybeboard) in the air.

    I like Voidmage Husher but I think Mystic Snake (currently in the maybeboard) is probably better as a 4-mana Value Bear.

    Oh yeah, Psionic Blast and Hornet Sting ... i'll definitely keep them in mind if I find I need some burn!

    Thanks so much for all the inputs!

    skoobysnackz,
    I'm not sure about adding Black (not that it's a bad idea, just that I don't currently have any of the manabase to support it, so it'd be a big outlay for essentially just an experiment). But Shadow of Doubt could be great for sure. Dream Eater is extremely interesting ... I'll give it a hard look.

    Thanks much!

    As I type this, I've got Vendilion Clique in the maybeboard. But I think you're right that the time has probably come to move it to the main :-)

    Thanks much!

    Ok. Budget deckbuilding theory time.

    'Non human werewolves' is a nice start- Paying a bunch of mana to flip a wolf is a neat little bit of card advantage to build around. To get that to happen, you need to build a midrange deck, and look to keep those wolves alive, because it isn't fast enough to race straight up.

    Some interesting on-theme cards to consider Feed the Pack (make small threats a swarm of wolves instead) Full Moon's Rise- regenerate dying wolves (super useful), Spirit of the Hunt, Wolfir Avenger- decent body, flash- Wolfbriar Elemental, good lategame wolf token generation, Wolfir Silverheart- amazing P/T booster

    Regardless of what you pick, you're going to have to pick some cards that take you to the midgame where you can draw ahead. Personally, I'd make it a G/B werewolf deck and jam 12 Duress variants and a couple draw engines, but thats how I fix most my deckbuilding problems. It doesn't matter how much you screwed up your creature choice if its the only thing on the field and your opponent doesn't have an answer.

    Mono green is an option, running fringe cards like Beast Within, lifegain like Jaddi Offshoot and ramp like Search for Tomorrow, although it is possible to fall behind a long way on board, and without copies of whatever Damnation variant you like it can be tricky.

    Blue green Fable of Wolf and Owl is an option, with Mana Leak and Prophet of Kruphix alongside wolves with flash and Mystic Snake, looking to draw out the game and win on card advantage, with a backing of creature ramp/instant speed card advantage. Think Twice and friends basically.

    Some changes are clear regardless of path forwards;

    Uncaged Fury can be cut. Its worse than other double strike options and doesn't play to that midrange strat. If you want the cheap power then just jam some Rancor.

    More ramp tools or cards which make an immediate gamestate impact need to be played for 4 mana.

    Your manabase needs tidying up- there are plenty of examples of good manabases in decks across the site- including examples of ramp strategies, budget duel colour strategies and appropriate utility lands. Keep an eye on your gameplan, and have a critical window- know what turns your deck wants to be strong and where you can afford to be weak.

    Last but not least, sideboard. If your meta is KCI and affinity, jamming artifact destruction will save you games. There are plenty of examples on site.

    What about Spirit of the Hunt in the sideboard as an answer to spells like Pyroclasm, Anger of the Gods and that kind of things?

    Also, Wolfir Avenger is a good wolf that is kind of awkard to deal with.
