Here's the latest iteration of my Bloodwave deck. I'm sure you all know how this type of book works by now, so let's skip straight to the discussion, If I may

I'd like this thread to be more about your thoughts and experiences than my own. I'm very interested in what has been working well for you all as Warlord (BW or AT), what hasn't, and your thoughts. This can be general, or card specific. For example, I've learned new respect for [mwcard=MWSTX2FFE04]Brace Yourself[/mwcard] recently as a cheap way to give my mage lots of armor that is acid resistant (though action heavy), but have had trouble justifying continued inclusion of [mwcard=FWQ06]Horn of Gothos[/mwcard].

If you don't play Warlord, but have been having recent success against, or trouble with, the Warlord, be sure to share.

Also, I'm interested in the amount of copies of cards you include, and why. I feel like one of the biggest challenges as a Warlord is deciding exactly how many of each command, etc, to include in your book, and the variance between how many of a card I choose, and how many you choose, could represent interesting differences in our respective meta.

Be sure to include a list of your own book, if interested, so we can compare. All discussion, comments, and criticisms welcome.
