Ajani Unyielding Discussion
3 weeks ago
Love the flavor of Ajani Unyielding, as he's not technically a cat planeswalker but he's the closest we have. A few suggestions, though, like maybe taking out the Attune with Aethers - I would just play a few more lands in their place, maybe something like Shefet Dunes. Also, Solemnity in the sideboard looks a little questionable, as it makes your Longtusk Cubs and Metallic Mimics virtually useless. Maybe you can replace it with something like Lifecrafter's Bestiary in more grindy matchups.
I saw a similar deck a couple weeks ago from SaffronOlive at mtggoldfish, maybe you can get some suggestions here: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/budget-magic-95-15-tix-gw-cat-tribal-standard
Overall, deck looks great - I love seeing the underdog (undercat?) tribes being played, especially when so many other tribes are being pushed so hard right now.

Pickacantaloupe - Thanks for all the details and ideas again! I may try to put some of them in the sideboard: Field of Ruin and Shefet Dunes look like reasonable sideboard cards and so does Settle the Wreckage. I will have to see which I own as my budget for new cards right now is VERY limited.
I like Vanquisher's Banner and it's definitely in the maybeboard for now but I'm not sure if it feels like it's just too slow? I need to do more testing with the deck as it stands because, as you say, this is still my worry about Ajani Unyielding too..

Ajani Unyielding as a 2 of in main deck would work wonders.

Hey Kaeryth, I love this deck! I made a Selesnya cat tribal deck before Ixalan was released but dismantled it because I just didn't like how it played.
This deck looks awesome and it plays pretty well. I would only modify one thing, Heroic Intervention. Sure Prowling Serpopard is a good card and pretty strong for a 3-drop, but I agree with him being in the sideboard against Blue. Heroic Intervention on the other hand, is an absolute must in this deck. As for what to take out, in my experience, I've only ever needed to run 2 Authority of the Consuls. It's one of my favorite White cards but it's pretty much a dead draw if you topdeck a second one, let alone a third.
The other card I would take out is Ajani Unyielding. It's an OK card, but at a CMC of 6, it's pretty pricey. I feel the deck would be just fine with one of them. That being said, if you absolutely must have both copies in there, I'd remove a land. 24 lands is the perfect number without any ramp or tutors.

My friend plays a Cat tribal deck.
Playing 4 of every Creature is rarely a good idea.
You need to switch things up by only playing 3 of some Cats:
MAYBE 3x Prowling Serpopard. You'll have to test that one.
I don't like 22 lands for this deck. Even Aggro decks are running 24 Lands, and using utility Lands to help with a win in the late game.
For this deck I would suggest adding 2x or 3x Shefet Dunes. They can sacrifice themself to get their effect.
I would try going to at least 23 Lands. 24 if you feel that you can cut enough things.
Adding 3x or 4x Scattered Groves would also be a good idea. They help you not to get colour screwed, and offer Cycling in the late game.
You'll be surprised how useful it is to be able to get rid of a land that you drew, to look for something else.
Remove some basic lands for them.
Tag me in these Comments if you make some changes, and want me to take another look.

Do you need 3 Authority of the Consuls and 3 Vanquisher's Banner ? You could probably reduce one of them each and get 2 Oath of Ajani. Since you are using Ajani Unyielding this will help get him out faster and pump you creatures up.
With Metallic Mimic in there as well this would give you good synergy. You might not need Solemnity in sideboard if you do go this way. 2 more Settle the Wreckage (because that card is crazy good) in the sb, would help more I think.
