Midrange deck playing around Stampeding Mammoth, breakthrough creatures, and Unstoppable Rage.

The deck plays very straight-forward. You can attack face or build a board presence from which to unleash an unstoppable attack.

Berserker of the Pale is a nice card that can make your threats even bigger, and help the big cards which don't have breakthrough to gain it so that guards will never slow your attack down. This card works well in conjunction with Caius Cosades and Emperor Titus Mede II, which both buff creatures before they're playing, increasing the number of creatures who will trigger Berserker's effect. Also note that a sufficiently triggered Dragontail Savior will then also trigger Berserker. This can make for a very powerful same-turn Unstoppable Rage.

Lucien Lachance is here to help your breakthrough creatures gain the health back they lose from running over guards. It doesn't hurt that they gain more attack in the process.

Crafting-wise the deck has a lot of flexibility. While useful, none of the uniques here are strictly necessary. Most of these, in particular Blood Dragon, can be replaced by normal Warrior cards like Sower of Revenge. There are a few cards that don't have 3x copies, and filling them in is a good place to start if you're missing other cards.

Stampede Sentinel is a fairly obscure card, and probably shouldn't be crafted if you aren't swimming in soul gems. An easy same-cost replacement would be Wrath of Sithis or Blackworm Necromancer. Same goes for Night Shadow if you're missing any copies of him.

Looks like a solid warrior Deck! I like the use of Stampede Sentinel in the deck especially with the added bonus of can not be damaged by action or SUPPORTS along with the synergy with Nahagliiv, it can be very difficult for fun police decks to deal with.

The deck seems to have very good balance, meaty bodies, multiple buffs and devasting damage. I also like the Berserker, Titus and Caius combo which can give you a big board presence.

The only thing I would say and believe something which a lot of warrior decks struggle with is the card draw/resource management. They can get reach burn out pretty easy and loss steam and fall to the dreaded top decking, especially against other decks that have the Board Control, Health gain and card draw advantage.

What would you remove from the deck and replace with, for extra card draw to keep the momentum?

Anyways still an amazing Deck! Thumbs up!!!

Sorry for the late reply, and thanks for the comment!

If you wanted to add card draw, the first card I'd look at is Ash Berserker. The easiest slot for them would be to remove 2x Gloom Wraith, and either whichever 4 cost unique legendary you were least impressed with, or maybe for 1x of Ald Velothi Assassin. The problem here is that Gloom Wraith being a 4 cost creature with breakthrough enables a single turn from hand burst via Unstoppable Rage, and I really like its inclusion (albeit, admittedly, not enough to add 3x).

If you wanted to keep those, I suspect Stampede Sentinel is the next target for the swap, but then that's awkward too because you've removed one of the best stats/cost creature in the deck, removed a breakthrough source. For a third copy you could swap out Gortwog, which sucks because he's so powerful, but admittedly he has no impact the moment he hits the board, and for a tempo deck like this that is a shortcoming.

If you wanted to keep those, then the next target should be the three 4 cost unique legendaries. That sucks because two of them directly buff creatures in hand or in the deck and the other buffs creatures already in play, all of which are nice things. But admittedly, they don't have as consistent an effect as Ash Berserker, which should be quite easy for this deck to trigger his effect.

Ultimately while Ash Berserker is 100% the card draw card to include, I have no idea what the safest swap is. You could even consider just picking three random cards that are included as a 3x and just remove 1 copy each and see how that feels.

Nothing to be sorry for.

You do raise some very good options.

I made a werewolf deck inspired by your choice and combinations, I included Ash Berserker and being a werewolf themed deck it has the benefit of Aela's Huntman, I also added Gortwog (if he survives can help a lot with the board volume) it has turned out to be very good.

Big Thank you again!

I had a breakthrough daily quest so I implemented my own suggestions and tested the deck further. I removed Gortwog and 2x Bleakcoast Troll to add 3x Ash Berserker and it was doing well. I'll probably finalize those changes soon.
