Looks good! You might like these: Nacatl War-Pride (one of my fave cards. a beast with things like anointed procession and parallel lives. and if you populate a copy, the populated one sticks around indefinitely), Blade of Selves (like nacatl, you keep populated copies), Herald of the Host, Minion Reflector, Seance, Anointer Priest, Angel of Sanctions, Adorned Pouncer, Second Harvest, Parallel Evolution, Ancient Stone Idol, Echo Chamber, Serra Avatar, Well of Lost Dreams, Cradle of Vitality, Ageless Entity

Hey, good job upgrading the precon.

You could cut several higher CMC cards to reduce the avg. CMC which can help to speed up the deck. An advantage of Kaheera is it's a three drop anthem effect for Cats therefore more one drop and two drop Cats you can get on the battlefield before you play Kaheera the more attacking you can do. Lower CMC Cats are also better with lots of equipment since easier to have mana to equip to the turn you play a Cat. Arahbo is the high CMC Cat you want to cast and it's easy access in the Command Zone.

Cats to consider adding:

Cats with double strike become real threats when their power is increased. Entity is a Cat since it's a changeling; it's also a mana sink to make all Cats high power/toughness until end of turn. When you activate Entity it changes the power/toughness of each Cat you control, then any other effects that increase the power/toughness of Cats are also applied to each Cat. Nacatl and Loam can benefit from dual lands that are both a Plains and a Forest: Temple Garden, Canopy Vista, Scattered Groves. Farseek and Nature's Lore can search for one of these lands.


Other cards to consider adding:

  • Sigarda's Aid: can cast equipment at instant speed and can equip to a creature you control for no mana cost when equipment ETB.
  • Eladamri's Call: instant creature tutor.
  • Open the Armory: tutor for an equipment.
  • Talisman of Unity
  • Selesnya Signet
  • Elemental Bond: draw when a 3 or more power Cat ETB. If there's effects that increase the power/toughness of Cats then these effects are applied as the Cat ETB. If these effects give the Cat 3 or more power then you can draw when it ETB. Works with tokens also.
  • Duelist's Heritage: give a Cat double strike until end of turn.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Elfhame Palace
  • Vivid Grove
  • Vivid Meadow
  • Jareth, Leonine Titan
  • Jedit Ojanen of Efrava
  • Rout
  • Nissa's Pilgrimage
  • Hero's Blade
  • Moonsilver Spear
  • Sigiled Sword of Valeron
  • Loxodon Warhammer
  • Icon of Ancestry
  • Frondland Felidar
  • Huntmaster Liger
  • Jazal Goldmane
  • Zendikar Resurgent
  • Door of Destinies

Good luck with your deck.

Entomb, Jarad's Orders, Perpetual Timepiece, Fauna Shaman, Golgari Grave-Troll

Fencing Ace or another Odric guy, maybe Adorned Pouncer, haste guy? Strangleroot Geist, Banehound, Dreg Mangler, Gurmag Swiftwing? maybe haste isn't as important if you're trying to do a go tall/voltron strategy. IDK

Nylea, Keen-Eyed?? self mills, indestructible, cost reduction?

zombob57: I'm only playing blue and red, unfortunately -- so Adorned Pouncer isn't in my colors here. I do love the option of mutating and self-cloning Kiki, but I can't DO anything with infinite tapped creatures in this list :( unless I'm missing something about the combo?

I think Adorned Pouncer would be better than Warren Instigator since you have one other goblin in here and adorned Pouncer can be recurred. Also as a backup plan you should include Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker because if you mutate her into a non-legend you can go infinite

Sounds like Dryad Militant may be better served as a sideboard card unless that’s a competitive card in your meta? If not, Adorned Pouncer has a high level of +1/+1 counter synergy in the deck and becomes better with Selesnya Charm - I would reconsider leaving it mainboard instead of Dryad Militant

Another benefit that Llanowar Elves has is it helps with the eternalize casting cost of Adorned Pouncer and Resilient Khenra.

This is a great start! You might like these:

  • Mimic Vat. Interestingly, if you populate a token that was made by Mimic Vat, the populated token stays indefinitely. This is because the new token was not created by the Vat and does not have the same triggers/restrictions tied to it. However, if you populate a token from Minion Reflector, both tokens are lost at end of turn because the creature itself has the text "At the beginning of the end step, sacrifice this permanent." So I recommend Mimic Vat but not Minion Reflector haha.

  • Similar to Mimic Vat: Twinflame, Flameshadow Conjuring, Helm of the Host, Seance, Feldon of the Third Path, Soul Foundry. These all let you create token copies of your creatures, which can be populated. Imagine having multiple Dragon Broodmothers!

  • Adorned Pouncer, Anointer Priest, Angel of Sanctions. These are all interesting here because after they have been embalmed/eternalized, you can populate them! Populating tokens with powerful effects like these is much better than making vanilla tokens.

  • Second Harvest and Parallel Evolution. Populate on steroids.

  • Eternal Witness, Farhaven Elf, Wily Goblin. These cards are decent on their own and become especially good when you start making token copies of them.
