24 Plains

4 Leonin Vanguard

4 Ajani's Pridemate

3 Seal Away

4 Aerial Responder

2 Leonin Warleader

1 On Serra's Wings

4 Famished Paladin

4 Squire's Devotion

Let me know what you think!

You could consider playing an energy sub-theme for Longtusk Cub adding Aether Hub and Servant of the Conduit, you will get mana fixing and probably a turn 4 Regal Caracal. Also, so many 2-of, scpecially non-legendary creatures, indicate lack of focus on your brew, so i'd advice you to decide wether you want 4x Adorned Pouncer or maybe even 4x Ajani's Pridemate since there is also a lifelink sub-theme. Finally, looks like you will have a hard time against flyers or big creatures so consider adding some Seal Away Check out my Post-Rotation Sai

Love the synergy in this deck. Crested Sunmare is one of my favorite plays to dominate a board state and combining the lifegain synergy with Ajani's Pridemate just feels so right.

Thank you for bringing together the kittehs and the ponehs.

If you're playing modern and you aren't playing Cat Jesus then you're missing out! With that, you should fit a few Ghost Quarter to your land base. I would remove a couple basic Forests (Down to 2, maybe), because you're mainly a white deck. Let the dual lands help with the green costs!

Also, Qasali Pridemage is a fantastic mainboard guy. Exalted is great, as well as having main board answers to artifacts and enchantments.

I'd actually replace some number of Ajani's Welcome with Authority of the Consuls. You need a bit of disruption to pave the way for your kitties!

I know you're trying to gain life for Ajani's Pridemate, but that shouldn't be your only focus. I would replace the Revitalize with Path to Exile to deal with bigger creatures than yours.

I think Ajani Steadfast is better than Ajani Goldmane. Personal opinion.

You need a sideboard if you are going to take this to an FNM. If you need help with that too let me know!

P.S. Mirror Entity is technically a kitty ;)

Well, this may stretch your budget, but Angel of Invention is one of the best white creatures in standard. Unfortunately, it's rotating out of standard very soon, but right now it can definitely hold its own. Also, Knight of Grace is actually quite good in monowhite, and it fits your budget. I see you have quite a bit of lifegain. Ajani's Pridemate is a good staple in lifegain, as unchecked it will win you the game. However, these suggestions are more aggressive; for a more midrange type deck, I'd consider adding more removal including several of FireToTheFace's suggestions, but also using Cast Out and Blessed Light. Firesong, are you attempting to create a more aggressive or a more controlling deck? Thanks.

If you focus more on the cats, you have Ajani's Pridemate, Pride Sovereign, Felidar Sovereign, Ajani's Welcome and more. Ajani cats are particularly strong in standard at the moment, see M19M Selesnya Cats and 19 white kittens and these decks are great fun to play.

Hi there! I do remember playing you in Arena, I thought your username was pretty funny. I believe you were playing against Anointed Modules, however instead of being a modern deck it had cards like Ajani's Welcome in it and Ajani's Pridemate with Shalai, Voice of Plenty.

If Magic Arena had Gavony Township, things would run soooo much better.

Kalastria Healer Is probably not good enough with this few allies.

Authority of the Consuls Should probably not be a 4-of, as it's main effect is redundant.

Bump in the Night is just not very good outside of a really agressive deck (Especially without red.)

Cutting 2 Consuls and the full playset of the other 2:

You could ad something along the lines of 4x Ajani's Pridemate, 2xLingering Souls, and 4x Inquisition of Kozilek if they are not too expensive.

That's my take on it.
