Adorned Pouncer Discussion

I ended up only doing 2 Prepare / Fight in the deck and removed 1 Prowling Serpopard and 1 Nature's Way from the Mainboard. The Pride Sovereign+Exert+Prepare works about just as good as the Adorned Pouncer+Appeal combo to get things moving towards generating a lot of damage. I can also stack Appeal to the Pride Sovereign as well to really deal some damage.
I also moved 1 Plains to the mainboard and moved a Forest to the sideboard to help with the mana curve a little. With my Sideboard being primarily White, I had to take into consideration that I may need additional plains in the Sideboard to off-set the cards and make it work to my advantage rather than to hinder me.
So far so good.

Alright. The largest issue I see with this deck at the moment, is the sheer number of three drops and lack of answers. I personally would cut Mirri, Cat Warrior, one Brimaz, King of Oreskos, and the Jedit Ojanen of Efrava, as well as the Intangible Virtue. Both Mirri and Brimaz are your only sources of multi green casting costs, and so cutting these cards will allow you to play more powerful cards at the same spots, and be more likely to actually cast them. Additionally, you don't have many copies of these cards anyways, and thus won't be able to reliably draw it. The reason for going down to three Brimaz is that he's legendary, and you don't want multiple copies in hand. The reason for cutting the virtue is that you are making roughly equal numbers of tokens and actual creatures, so the virtue would only hit half of your board.
Additionally, you don't have many payoffs for going tribal cats. Here are some options for you, with some being cheaper than others.
Some Payoffs and other cats you may not have considered Show
And here's some recommendations for removal
And then finally, the deck as it currently stands is a bit lacking in card advantage, so with additional tribal payoffs, the best one I can think of is Mouth / Feed, as it'll allow you to at LEAST draw one card, but usually many more.
Hopefully some of that helps!

Lord of the Accursed should be in there somewhere. No? Particularly in standard where 3 toughness saves your guys from a lot of stuff. Also Adorned Pouncer isn't a zombie initially, but becomes a 4/4 double strike pretty cheaply. Love esper zombies. Working on esper zombies for edh right now.

TheBoyless: Adorned Pouncer is a good thought, and the addition to the deck seems solid, however I may have to think about adding it to be sideboarded in, instead of mainboard. I am going to make one switch, when they get here/I acquire them:
The reason? It makes more of a "prisoner's dilemma", especially when it comes out of the graveyard. It is either 4 damage or 2 damage and a card drawn. That is a bad choice to have to make your opponent make. That is why I think the card is a great addition to the deck.
Can I say I love the Afflict mechanic?

Hey, really like the deck, love Bant and this is a super interesting deck list. If I were you I would consider adding Adorned Pouncer since its cheap and could potentially swing for 8 when it comes back from the grave, also has the added benefit of reanimating itself in case you don't have your Gift out yet.

As for what to remove from the deck... You run quite a low mana curve, so I think you can get away with 22 lands. That leaves 38 spots of which I'd play around 22-28 creatures and a bit of spells.
I would probably cut the following:
-Rhonas's Last Stand does nothing for you and isn't worth a slot in this deck imo.
-Mighty Leap is not a card I'm happy to see, and it doesn't do a whole lot usually.
-Scythe Leopard. I value this one a bit lower than the Sacred Cat as that comes back and can block twice. -Pouncing Cheetah which I think isn't good enough in standard.
- 4 1drops: sacred cat
- 10 2drops: longtusk cub(4), adorned pouncer(4), metallic mimic(2), and something else if you dont have all copies
- 8 3drops: pride sovereign and prowling serpopard/ Pouncing Cheetah (which I think is worse than the other two options)
- 0 4drops: hence I mentioned the vizier
- 4 5drops: as a combination of the regal caracal(3) and the crested sunmare(1)
That will leave room for 12 noncreature spells, of which you currently have 1 annointed procession and a monument. (add another monument and that leaves 9 spots), add 6 buff and 3 finishers and you should be good to go.
Keep in mind that this is just a suggestion, and meant to help you cover all aspects (albeit on a low level), so feel free to do with it what you want to do ;)

Saving Grace and Heroic Intervention are likely to be your saving grace and you might want at least 3 of each in your main-board. If someone plays a board-wipe, you simply respond by targeting Rhonas the Indomitable with Saving Grace, etc. I prefer something like Regal Caracal to Adorned Pouncer mainly because getting out your tokens is that much easier. My gut-feel is that if you can speed up your token generation by playing 3 each of Anointed Procession and Second Harvest, you may just get to dominate the field before a control deck starts to interfere with your plans.
Have a look at Kittens Play and see if you can get any help from there
