Adorned Pouncer Discussion

This is what a deck built around Anointed Procession / Parallel Lives (and you need both to avoid extraction effects) would look like Anointed Procession - demo. You would use Fog or Ethereal Haze to stall your opponent and build counters on Luminarch Ascension or the planeswalkers Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar . You have cheap one drops that make tokens Doomed Traveler and Centaur's Herald . There is even a card that protects all your stuff Privileged Position and an incase of emergency Gather the Townsfolk . You have Adorned Pouncer and Honored Hydra in your sideboard because after the first game your opponent will remove any graveyard hate and add enchantment and planeswalker hate, what form this hate takes will depend on the deck you are playing against...
Decks which want to use tokens aren't tribal decks, in fact they rarely have creatures other than a few basics to keep them alive. My first demo deck, Procession of 9 Lives - Demo was essentially a tribal aggro deck, which is what your deck is at the moment. This new demo deck is an Anointed Procession deck, there isn't a cat to be seen in the main-deck and it plays very differently to your deck...

You should add more lands and more mana ramp. Your average CMC is over 4 and you only have 34 lands and 4-ish mana ramp cards. There are also some cards that don't make a ton of sense in here as they don't make tokens or don't synergize with them. Cards like Brago, King Eternal, Ixidron, Always Watching and kinda Blade of Selves and Ephara, God of the Polis don't seem to do much. I suppose Ephara draws you cards on your opponent's turn and could draw you some extra cards if you play an instant copy spell so she's alright. Blade of Selves doesn't make sense to me because the tokens don't stay around. I see a few decent ETB effects on creatures in the list but I honestly think Helm of the Host would be a better card in here. The helm makes tokens that stick and you could equip it to Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun to make multiple things unblockable each combat.
Also there seems to be a split between whether this deck wants to be a go big tokens deck or a go wide tokens deck. I suppose you can have both, but I would definitely lean towards going big and cut one of the two mono-white gods (probably Oketra). With that in mind I would look to add some Eternalize cards. Adorned Pouncer seems really good in here, as does Champion of Wits, Sinuous Striker, and Sunscourge Champion. Vizier of the Anointed would also be a card to consider if you add in some of the Eternalize cards. I would cut some of the less good go-wide cards for them.
Also adding in some card draw could be a good idea. You're pretty low on it right now.
So in sum, cut cards that don't make sense with the deck, add in more lands, ramp, and card draw, and maybe look into eternalizing some stuff.

So this is a Hollow One deck that actually wants to play white...
SCORE: 6 | 475 VIEWS | IN 2 FOLDERS
Primarily this is a Hollow One deck, but using Soulflayer as a backup plan, with the option (just...) to eternalize Adorned Pouncer. Transformative sideboard to play more of a burn angle when grave hate comes in.

I think my cats will be the ones giving me life needed for Ajani's Pridemate, as they have lifelink, but I could be wrong. I'll probably do as you say and get rid of one Heroes' Reunion and a few Gift of Strength and even a few of Blossoming Defense and play instead with Birds of Paradise and Lotus Cobra, rather than add more lands. I already have 7x Forest 8x Plains 4x Sunpetal Grove. Don't you think that's enough lands? 19 in total. With Birds of Paradise and Lotus Cobra, if I draw them, they would allow me to gain lands much faster. I would useAjani's Welcome but I don't know how many cat cards i'll be casting. Do you think I'll have more than 7 creatures on the battlefield on the fourth turn? The whole reason I'm thinking of using birds of paradise and lotus cobra is so that early in the game I'll be able to play Anointed Procession and eternalize Adorned Pouncer, play Leonin Warleader, as well as Regal Caracal. If I can't get enough cats early in the game, I'll be twiddling my thumbs until I get enough mana, as Regal Caracal and Leonin Warleader are two main cat givers, and Pride Sovereign would be pointless until the 4th turn if I don't have these mana rampers. If I draw Sacred Cat at any time in the game, the most I can have on the battlefield is 4 until I can mummify them, which is the whole point of Anointed Procession. Anointed Procession is the main card that this whole deck depends upon.

I've seen many Hollow One variants and play one, but I've never seen one use Measure of Wickedness, I like the idea behind it, but I don't like that you warped the deck slightly (Shriekhorn) to enable it or that it costs 4 to cast... If I was using it, I'd add Furyblade Vampire and cut Grisly Survivor and Shriekhorn, Furyblade is a free discard outlet, with a reasonable upside. Your also running too many creatures with Delve, the normal Hollow One deck which runs fetch lands still only runs 4 delve creature, so -2 Gurmag Angler, -2 Tombstalker +2 Flameblade Adept and +2 Flamewake Phoenix. I'd only use Immortal Coil if I had something like Rakdos Charm (artifact destruction) in the deck, it's a massive risk. I probably prefer Sword-Point Diplomacy and Risk Factor to Dark Deal, which is card disadvantage and can only be played turn 3 when your hand could be almost empty.
Lands, your not running fetches so why run Blood Crypt? Budget wise removing the crypt would more than cover 4x Dragonskull Summit and 4x Foreboding Ruins, importantly this would let you cut the number of swamps. This is essentially a red deck for the first 2 turns, no matter what the colour wheel says, mana sources that don't provide red should be kept to a minimum. If you don't have a red source in your opening hand then you need to muligan.
As I said at the top, I play a version of Hollow One Power 4 is Ferocious, though it also runs Soulflayer as the Delve creature. That meant I had to warp the deck slightly to take full advantage of Soulflayer, basically I need to have access to Double Strike. Initially I went with Prophetic Flamespeaker, it was playable and had relevant abilities, sorted. Not really, I ended up splashing white, no Hollow One deck runs white, green, blue, sure but not white (ok, there is one that uses Lingering Souls). I splashed white for 2 reasons, first Adorned Pouncer, second better sideboard options...
I hope this is of help, have fun and good luck with your brew.

The Hollow One decks which share many cards with this, get away with 18 land, but then again you are trying to create an evasive Soulflayer with double strike which you can cast Tainted Strike on for the win. That is a fair few ifs... My first suggestion to you is swap Swiftblade Vindicator for Adorned Pouncer, it can still be Soulflayer food, but the option exists to Eternalize, giving you another shot at a 4/4 with double strike. This is slightly more edgy, you could drop Tainted Strike for Traitor's Clutch, Shadow might as well grant a creature can't be blocked and all your other creatures are dealing damage already...
I'm playing a similar deck to yours at the moment, but I am using Hollow One (shameless plug Power 4 is Ferocious), one of my experiences with that deck is that, it's still essentially a red deck and non-red sources suck in your opening hand, I'm thinking Concealed Courtyard here, which is only good in your opening hand. Hopefully this gives you some ideas, good luck with your brew.

And of course everyones favourite kitty! (There's a lot of Ajanis and all of them fits in a midrange-creature based deck so up to you but this two are my preferences) Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants

Both planeswalkers will give you alot of tokens for their Ultimate's. Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants can bring back key cats for different situations (Qasali Pridemage, Pride Sovereign, Ajani's Pridemate, Adorned Pouncer).
