Deck Description

Are you bored? Does Magic: The Gathering feel old and vapid? Got any useless bucks in your bank account? Ladies and Gentlemen, I have solution.
Use your bank account on nearest MTG marketplace website and buy some cheap cards, craft a deck, and challenge your friends! To double the fun, ask your friend to create such a deck too!
The Budget Decks -series is meant for your free time! These are meant to inspire you, and deck's value is meant to be low! (Between 10 and 20 bucks.)

How to Play

This deck is a remake of my Standard Warrior deck that I created a while back:
http://www.mtgvault.com/northernwarlord/decks/budget-decks-standard-warrior/
Several people asked me to create a remake of it when Fate Reforged gets released, so here we are. Enjoy!

As in the earlier version, cast a bunch of warriors, get some buff up, let out your most vigorous battle cry and charge into the battle! With this army with you, losing doesn't look like an option.

With Fate Reforged online, your warrior horde brought some new friends to play with: Battle Brawler is horribly powerful early gamer, while Mardu Strike Leader brings some additional buddies to the rumble.
To those people with some eye for tactics, there are also cards for it. Mardu Woe-Reaper makes sure that dead people really stay down. On the other hand, Dragonscale General gives a mighty buff up to your smallest attacker after each assault.

ya im thinking of doing a mardu warrior edh with zurgo or Alesha for commander im leaning more towards zurgo but those colors have lots of nice warrior creatures and all of the best removal and all the best stuff to play from your grave yard. I think ill design it on here now ill post it once its done I already own most of the cards

One issue I've ran into with a VERY similar approach was anger of the gods.
Replaced edges for safety/saves. Has helped so far.
Also consider running a single call to the ranks, shouldn't break the bank unless the price went up.

3- 4x Valorous Stance. 2- cmc removal against the bigger decks, indestructible against control. This should also have at least one more Raider's Spoils. It's one of the most important cards in the deck.

A starting place for a nonbudget warriors deck:

4x Bloodsoaked Champion
4x Thoughtseize
2x Mardu Woe-Reaper (the other 2 in the side)
8x Chiefs
2- 4x Battle Brawler
3- 4x Mardu Strike Leader
1x Athreos
2x Raider's Spoils
2x Sorin, Solemn Visitor
3x Valorous Stance

Then you can splash red for Crackling Doom, Mardu Charm, and Rabblemaster if you like

Why no brutal hordechef? Remember mono red agro about 2 years ago? damage equal to attacking creatures is just...sick... I would not have mr chief of the scales at tall really.. he just does not do enough... having the stance instead of him is just way better.

0

1x Athreos because he remains mostly unproven. In this deck he would be decent because I'm playing all 8 lords, which contribute 2 devotion each, but he's still a waste of a valuable early turn if you play him on curve most of the time.

Brutal Hordechief is not Hellrider. Haste is a huge, huge deal. Hordechief is decent but at this point I would consider it optional. I would just rather have a Sorin or Raider's Spoils, but I could be proven wrong. Sorin is especially valuable in certain matchups because he survives a boardwipe to generate a creature (a reason why it's better to dash Strike Leader) and his flyers could end the game against a deck that took a bunch of damage but then stabilized the ground.

I choose Chief of the Scales because the body is large and it's another lord, even if it's far worse than Chief of the Edge. Any time you draw enough Chiefs in a row your board starts to get absurd. Plus they make most of your team survive Drown in Sorrow, and 2 would get your team through an Anger of the Gods. But now that I think about it Battle Brawler is probably better in many cases because of first strike. I'd play 4x of both though. 12x 2- drops is not too many.

so hellrider's body itself was a kind importunate i guess? I mean all i remember is winning when he dropped XD... so you don't think the effect itself is worth the mana (he doesn't have to attack to trigger the drain effect) That's cool i guess.. maybie i am overrating him...

0
Posted 23 January 2015 at 17:30

It was mostly the effect with haste. You never know when it's coming, but you're going to take a lot. He usually didn't survive the attack, so his body wasn't as important. But he beat control with haste, and he beat midrange players with the effect getting the last points through, even if they had managed to stabilize the ground.

This guys effect is ridiculous. No one will deny that. But without haste you just can't accurately compare him to Hellrider. Time will tell if he's good enough to make waves in Standard anyways.

I think your right... building around him i guess you have to take the lifegain into account and go full ham with things like Harald of torment and boon of eribos and such, using your life as a resource seeing as your going to get filled back up... in that respect he is really different to hellrider..

Great starting point for me northy! I've been working on getting the cards I need for mardu warriors but I had no idea what to have as a base 60 to build from!

If I get this list I can easily see what I want to swap out, but the deck itself is perfect for a budget while I get the more expensive cards.

I cannot thank you enough buddy. :)

This is a pretty on point comment. Any one of the Budget decks Northy builds are complete and fun to play on their own. and can easily be improved With brutal Hordechief or Alesha, who smiles at death for example.

Alesha would require splashing red, though. So, that may or may not be something someone wants to do. But, if you did, you could also throw in a Goblin Rabblemaster, as they are warriors. And that can be fairly rough on people if played early.

Pretty Much. that wouldn't be a deck I would want to play against. There's your new lifegain/burn combo for Standard right there. Abzan Tokens centered around Rabblemaster, and Hordechief. you just have to find some sort of mana ramp because it's a slow combo without it.

At FNM I concede whenever people play Rabblemaster on like, turn 2-3 and I cant remove it or counter it. It makes them angry. xD

@Fairemont - Rabblemaster is a warrior himself, but his tokens are just untyped goblins. He's probably still worth splashing for, though, which goes to show how strong a card it is.

The BW Budget Warriors deck is quite flexible. You can move it to MonoBlack Aggro, MonoWhite Weenie, splash Red, or eve get it to Blue White Heroic. Your Blood Soaked Champions do need a vacation now and again. It only requires a small card pool to have all of these possible decks Fate Reforged has added some new cards, such as the Marang River Prowler. You can team him up with Agent of Fates, Gnarled Scarhides, and splash in some Hooting Mandrills for fun.

All of the card you suggested minus Blood Soaked Champion would be a horrible addition to this deck. None of them are warriors and none of them add anything vital to the deck. "Splashing" any of the things you added would just change the dynamic of the deck. they are great cards in their own facet but just not here.

Northy, more than most I know you can help me out here.

Bottom line, Tax Return is coming to USA.
I am getting a crap ton of money.
The entire last year getting back into Magic I have had to trade my cards to build decks.
I haven't had the money to buy cards. I have traded over 200 dollars worth of old cards to buy new cards/budget decks.
Well, as of 3 weeks from now, I will have money I can spend!!

Yippie!!!

Not much to other people...but I am going to have about $150 dollars to spend on cards.
I want to buy Staple cards.
Cards that do not go down in value. That are universally used in decks. That aren't something like Tribal (only good if they are in the same deck together like Goblin Lackey). That are highly ranked but cheap (Example: Leonin Relic-Warder, rated 4 out of 5 stars but under 1 dollar each!!!)

http://www.mtgvault.com/jessie/decks/list-of-stamples-you-decide/

Please go to that link and throw down some names of really excellent, highly ranked, adaptable, cheap Staple Cards.
I assume you will do the best because of the sheer volume of Budget decks you have made. You know really good cards, for budget prices, when you see them.

Anyone is welcome to help out.

P.S. Obelisk of Turd! :)

Even stuff like 4 Gitaxian Probe or 4 Manamorphose may be too expensive.
True...I love them and and want 4 each...but just buying those 8 cards cost: 20 dollars!!

And Gitaxian Probe is ranked 4.3 out of 5 stars.
Manamorphose is ranked 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Both over 2 dollars each
Leonin Relic-Warder is ranked 4.3 but only cost 25 cents. Same rank as Gitaxian Probe, but much cheaper.

That is why I need your help.

I wouldn't buy anything that is a modern staple until after the modern season pro-tour rotates out and modern masters 2 has been released and prices have settled. Once the season ends card prices tend to go down, as much as 50% and reprints of common staples could cause prices to drop overall.

hey northy, love the warriors! my friend is working on a non-budget and it looks terrifying to say the least lol. don't know if it's been suggested and I question the viability of it myself, but what about despise for some cheap removal? obviously thoughtsieze would be the way to go since warriors tend to be weak to bile blight, drown and anger until you manage to pump their toughness, but despise could also get rid of pesky creatures with deathtouch or doomwake giants that could really mess up your tempo if it gets to late game.
anywho, if you have time I think you should try to make a manifest deck for your budget series! and if you could, would you mind checking out my future FNM manifest deck and offer a few suggestions and maybe get some other eyes on it to help me out?

I really like Despise as a cheaper alternative to Thoughtsieze. Splash red and you can run Mardu Charm to take out the Anger of the Gods. It has a much higher casting cost but it's like $19 cheaper than Thoughtsieze and it isn't rotating out in October. If you splash red for the charm you can also run Alesha Who Smiles at Death for two dollars each.

Splashing a third color increases chances of loosing to variance dramatically, and in order to negate that the mana base would push the deck to be non-budget.

IMO, mardu charm isn't good enough to change the dynamic of the deck. If anger of the gods is a problem , return to the ranks can be sided in, but a single obelisk of urd (in the main board) makes anger useless. Anger of the gods can always be played around by not over-committing to the board. Mardu charm costs 3 mana, so does Diplomacy of the Wastes, which is on color, hits more cards and causes the opponent to lose 2 life. Granted its not an instant, but neither are thoughtsieze, despise, duress, inquisition etc. So If a budget hand attack option is needed I would go for diplomacy of the wastes and/or despise.

Alesha, however, may be. In playtesting I found that battle brawler was the best card in the list because of the first strike, something Alesha also has. I would not, however, suggest playing Alesha without fetchlands. Playing more taplands would slow the deck down immensely, and as stated previously adding basic mountains would increase the chances of loosing to mana screw.

I've seen people -1 comments suggesting non-budget upgrades to budget decks. I haven't played since Ice Age and I just got back into MTG after Khans. For a player like me, the budget deck is a foundation to build on, so I really appreciate the non-budget suggestions. I wish people wouldn't -1 them.

I wasn't aware of Diplomacy of the Wastes when I suggested Mardu Charm. You're right, Diplomacy is way better for this deck and you don't have to add another color for it. I don't know the new cards so I probably shouldn't be offering suggestions, but isn't Obelisk of Urd pretty high casting Cost? Without ramp your opponent can get out Anger of the Gods three turns before your Obelisk and you wont have much mana for Return to the Ranks. Plus everything returned will have summoning sickness or am I wrong about that?

Either way it doesn't matter. Mardu Charm or Diplomacy of the Wastes requires just as much land in play as Anger of the Gods. The difference is Mardu Charm slows your deck down considerably.

obelisk has convoke that ability allows you to tap creatures to play it faster

I didn't -1 you. You brought up a good point. Hand attack is something to consider, because there are cards out there that can't really be dealt with. The only reason I know of that card is because I got the BW warrior pre-con deck for free and it had 2 copies of diplomacy of the wastes in it. I try to suggest alternatives when giving feedback instead of just saying "hey that's bad," because otherwise it's not constructive.

Also people reading may not realize that playing the importance of having a solid mana base, especially when going into 3+ colors. If you just throw in 2 fetch lands, you're not going to notice, but having the full deal makes everything so much smoother. You can actually play-test and get results rather than losing 2/3 of the games to screw/flood and not actually knowing what cards were successful or not. Suggesting a red splash brought rise to that/this discussion, and may benefit someone.

Obelisk has convoke, so its not terribly difficult to get out T4, and unless your opponent has no board presence, they likely haven't played anger yet in hopes of having you play into it more.

Return to the ranks is WW + 1 for each creature. You shouldn't be paying much for return to the ranks unless you keep overextending, because the only real targets to reanimate are Battle brawler and a chief of the scale. How many of those have you plaid/have been killed by the time you've drawn return to the ranks? 4 by the time you have 6 mana, 3 by the time you have 5 mana? That doesn't seem like that big of a mana commitment to me. But you're also not wrong, if you don't have an oblelisk out or return enough chief of the scales to get your warriors to T4, someone could just anger all the creatures brought back with RttR. Which is why I suggested that this deck desperately needs Mogis's Maruders. I don't care that it's not a warrior. It gives everything in the deck haste + intimidate.

I like this; it goes a lot farther than most budgets.
For those considering this deck, get your Mardu Strike Leader's sooner than later. If warriors becomes a thing, it will go up.

I also liked your previous standard warriors deck. Similar to the other one, this is an orzhov aggro deck, and I might consider replacing dragonscale general with aven skirmisher (flying) or mardu shadowspear for earlier pressure/faster aggro. Just my 2 cents. +1!

0
Posted 26 January 2015 at 19:32

I have no idea how casual of an environment you play in, but here are some suggestions:

Shadowspear > Mardu Woe reaper. Switch them if you're going against a deck that uses delve, whip of erebos, flamewake phoenix, or bloodsoaked champion that way you can exile delve material/juicy recursion targets.

Mardu Hordechief > Mardu Strike Leader. Mardu Hordechief is a 2/3, not a 3/2. Butts matter when you're trying to survive a dash. Unless you've already got an obleisk of urd up, Strike leader most likely wont survive a dash, leaving behind a 2/1. True, that its possible to get multiple tokens, but the likelyhood is slim in my opinion. If you want lots of 2/1s + card advantage play Bloodsoaked champion.

Play sandsteppe outcast! It supports obelisk of urd, devouring light, and harsh sustenance and raid. The flyer gives you another creature to tap for convoke. The flyer can more often attack during board stalls and get you that ever important raid trigger for hordechief, bloodsoaked champion, bellowing saddlebrute (its a 4/5 warrior for 4. with a single chief of the scale it kills siege rhino.)

I would consider citadel siege over Dragonscale general. The first mode of citadel siege lets you put counters on a creature when there is a board stall. With dragonscale general you'd have to attack (as you don't have any tap effects), so if you opponent has good blocks you won't get to use his effect (which you also can't choose the target). The first mode lets you take advantage of an opponents slow start and be super aggressive. The second mode of citadel siege makes your opponent's best creature not exist (i.e a siege rhino, a dromaka) and lets you attack through it because it will still be tapped during your turn unless for some stupid reason your opponent is playing triton tactics. The second mode lets you recover from your own slow start.

I would also consider dropping harsh sustenance because in order to make that card playable you have to over-commit to your board (probably have 5+ creatures), which makes board wipes better against you. Ugin, possibly red uncommon dragon/UB dragon, drown in sorrows, death frenzy, polymorphist's jest, atherspouts, crux of fate, end hostilities, and anger of the gods then become 5 for 1s. If you do want to play harsh sustenance, i would play sandsteppe outcast and choose to put a 1/1 spirit creature token. A replacement could be valorous stance. It kills the big T creatures, which is what I expect warriors would be afraid of, and protects your own. And its a hell of a lot cheaper than hero's downfall.


In the SB i'd ditch Revoke Existence for Erase, its cheaper and faster, and hits pretty much all of the same targets that revoke existence does. Unless you expect to go against a lot of scuttling doom engine/soul of new phyrexia.

I'd have at least a copy of glare of heresy in the SB. It gets rid of sorin, elspeth, chained to the rocks, banishing light, siege rhinos, butcher of the horde, anafenza, pre-monstrous fleecemang lion.... the majority of evil things in standard are white.

In the SB I'd also run hand attack In the event you go against something you can't deal with, in the hopes you can get it out of their hand before they play it, UB dragon, ugin? So although thoughtseize is expensive, there's the new warrior-thoughtseize for 3 mana. You could swap out creatures for mardu skullhunter.

Oh, if you go against the UB dragon, whose name always escape me, you can try adding merciless executioner from the sideboard. Control only has 1-2 creatures in the whole deck. If its the dragon, that's the only way I can think to get rid of it besides a crackling doom, or polymorphist's jest (which are both out of your colors). If it's the leviathan, then you gained tempo, because then they'd have to bounce 3 lands + the creature.

Rally the ancestors does nothing except give blocks because it doesn't give the reanimated creatures haste and exiles them at EoT. He's not playing red/temur, so he has no way to give his creatures haste. The only reason to play Rally the ancestors would be if every creature you played had an enter the battlefield ability. The only targets worth getting would be reclamation sage, siege rhino, and hornet queen. There's already a card that does it better, i.e. whip of erebos.

however, it is super nice if you cast it on your opponent's turn.

Yes. My thoughts exactly.

that way it doesn't need to give haste, as the creatures pass through an upkeep.

I didn't read the card correctly. It exiles at the beginning of your next upkeep. So, you'd have to cast it during your upkeep to have them stay on the board for a turn, but would get exiled before losing summoning sickness.

I think that if you wanted to use this card you should be running 4x Mogis's Marauders and cast for 3(W)(W), which allows you to bring back everything except Dragonscale general. At worst marauders give themselves haste (and intimidate), and at best they give every black creature you reanimate haste too, +1 more for each devotion you already have on the board (raiders spoils, etc). I'd then switch woe-reapers for shadow-spears because that guarantees damage, and mardu hordechief for sandsteppe outcast because either hordechief won't get his raid trigger or the creatures don't get haste (depending on when you cast rally the ancestors), whearas outcast will get the trigger on ETB regardless. Then you get to leave behind a blocker. In this situation strike-leader is also a good choice because he leaves back blockers.

I'm going to put a shameless plug in here. http://www.mtgvault.com/wd40/decks/jeskai-token-full-how-to-play/

Citadel Siege and Aven Skirmisher pretty much won me every game of the recent prerelease. This would put a flier on the field to help block Jeskai and buff up/add more control.

you should put brutal hordechief and sorin into the sb just for non budget options

yea. i would like to see a non budget version of this deck since me and my friends print out the proxy's and slide the paper into card sleeves with the plentiful yugioh cards i have lying around.

I don't get how this deck handles opponents' flying creatures? Or does it go all out in the hopes of killing the opponents before flying creatures becomes a problem?

Woe Reaper, Harsh Sustenance, Rush of Battle, and Scoured Barrens gain him life.

Add in the fact that his warriors are pumped up with Obelisk of Urd, Chief of the Scale/Edge, Raider's Spoils, and Rush of Battle with all of the life gain he has...and I think his strategy is to outpace flying creatures.

It is a very nice deck.

So...in short, your second answer is right. :)

Sorry Northy, if it was rude for me to answer.

and the non budget version of this would have sorin for more pump/ lifelink and flying tokens

A lot of decks aren't exactly tailored to combat flying creatures. but with all three instants in this deck i'd say The deck is covered if flying becomes too big of an issue.

Hi Northy! Can i ask you a favor? Can you do a Modern Landfall aggro deck? I run a R/W Landfall aggro before but i sell it. i saw your landfall decks but if it is possible creating a new deck by adding cards from the new sets. Thanks in Advance if you do!!! Hoping for your great decks to come :D

my main creatures are steppe lynx and plated geopede then equip adventuring gear then terramorphic expanse and evolving wilds then assault strobe for double strike in turn 3 i can deal 18 damage at once XD. Its ok if it is not RW. Other color version would be great too XD

First of all, thanks for this deck, really made me want to create a similar one to play with my friends.
I'm an intermediate player and as such, some questions came in my mind, I hope some of you will respond to it.
Initially, and in a non-budget option, I was wondering if it was worth it to splash Aleska in this deck, and why (or not).
A second question : with several creatures with a higher power than toughness, is it interesting to put some cards to have first strike? (I'm thinking of coordinate assault)
And if this/these cards are interesting how many lands/which one I have to put to have the mana I needed.
(sorry if I made some mistakes, english isn't my native tongue)
Thank you in advance !

For me, it is much easier to demonstrate by doing than speaking you know...
I could create an example about Mardu-colored standard warrior tribal if you wish.
Within my budget of course.

PS. Don't worry about your English. I understand you completely. English ain't my native tongue either.

good deck. but there's 1 small problem that i see. mardu horde chef is sub par to mardu strike leader. mardu strike leader is Superior in every way except for the fact that any of your monsters attacks can trigger hordecheifs effect(which is worse then strike leaders) . i would suggest taking out all the hordecheifs, put 1 more mardu strike leader, and 2 enchantments/instants to protect your creatures, get rid of enemy threats or enchantments that bolster your creatures power in some way.

Hey Northy, I wasn't sure if you got a chance to look at the Dragons of Tarkir spoilers yet, but there's possibly some good warriors to add when they are released. Blood-chin Fanatic, but I really like Arashin Foremost and to a lesser extent, Aven Sunstriker. How can anyone not like double strike =)

That is what the standard format makes you do. Add/subtract from your decks every 3 months or so to stay in format.

Northern, I have a request for a new budget or high roller deck. A standard deck using outlast/bolster mechanic. There are some good cards in the Khans block that make this seem like a good mechanic.
