Arahbo, Roar of the World
Legendary Creature — Cat Avatar
Eminence - At the beginning of combat on your turn, if Arahbo, Roar of the World is in the command zone or on the battlefield, another target Cat you control gets +3/+3 until end of turn.
Whenever another Cat you control attacks, you may pay 1GW. If you do, it gains trample and gets +X/+X until end of turn, where X is its power.

Arahbo, Roar of the World Discussion
10 hours ago
Won a game last night after casting only 3 spells. Turn 3 Dire Fleet Daredevil, turn 5 Neheb, turn 6 Mob Rule. The Edgar Markov deck already had 3 lords on the board, plus Sanctum Seeker. The Arahbo, Roar of the World deck had 5 creatures and a Collective Blessing. The Karametra, God of Harvests deck had Karametra online. So, Mob Rule for power 4 or greater took everything, swing, kill 2 players and add like 70 mana post combat. Runehorn Hellkite with a sac outlet allowed me to spin wheels into a Rolling Thunder to finish off the third player.

Anytime people say cute these days I like to at least mention Wasitora, Nekoru Queen because of the tokens that are created.
Avacyn, Angel of Hope decks are generally fine at mid level and casual tables. I dunno if she would really want to run a deck with 10+ broad wraths though... That is what it usually does.
My friend has an angel tribal deck that runs rather well. The commander is not legal but I've never met anyone who disallows it. His deck does need some work but angel tribal is rather powerful.
I would also mention that mixing tribes rarely goes well. Unless you find some angels that directly buff cats or something do not mix tribes. You are only going to weaken the deck in most cases. There are exceptions but only rarely.
If you do Arahbo, Roar of the World I think token really works well with him. Parallel Lives, Anointed Procession, etc. maybe a few equip so that Kemba, Kha Regent can work. Lots and lots of mana so she can pay for arahbo's second ability as much as she feels like.

Thanks for the comment, working on it a little bit everyday! Finding some cat combos and synergies has been challenging, but I've been trying to hone down on a winning strategy. I know Arahbo, Roar of the World is a Tier4, so he can't be a Tier1, but I'm going to find a way to keep him competitive.
Keep an eye out, it's a very fluid process and I try and add updates every other day. I'm looking/testing a land destruction model right now to see how that performs as a secondary strategy.

It was the first battle for my newest commander Karametra, God of Harvests this evening in a three player game against two pre-con commander decks; Oloro, Ageless Ascetic and Arahbo, Roar of the World.
The victory was sealed with the loss of only one life point.

I like the myriad flavor and the pump up / ETB flavor of your deck!
Mirror Entity could be an interesting one for you, he is a shapeshifter/cat, and can make all the attackers X/X.
Sword of Light and Shadow and Sword of Feast and Famine won't work with the Eminence triggers as well due to the Protection, but they are pretty utility on their own, and since you have multiple attackers, probably doesn't affect you.
Stand to be corrected, but with Myriad the enter tapped and attacking, so it won't trigger properly with Beastmaster Ascension. Might be too slow, but once it triggers it's good.
Not a fan of Hungry Lynx, if they remove him, then they have a bunch of deathtouch blockers to kill your big cats or pumpers.
You have some pretty high CMC's and Lifecrafter's Bestiary and Blind Obedience and such take mana, but don't see much tutor or land enablers. Maybe a Steelshaper's Gift or some type of tutor cat Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith or Taj-Nar Swordsmith to get the Sword of the Animist.
It's strange our decks are similar in spell counts but quite different in design and strategy. Cool build. +1

I notice you have Karmic Guide + Reveillark (I use this in Kaalia of the Vast Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH, but I use it with Goblin Bombardment. I can't seem to see a sac-outlet to utilize the combo, maybe Greater Good, the Reveillark will net you a card, but the Karmic Guide will cost you a card, but you could in theory, unburial every single 2 or less power cat to the battlefield with the Reveillark LTB trigger, and tutor through the library to find some type of wincon, maybe a Triumph of the Hordes or something? Do you have a way to abuse the synergy there?
I like the 35 lands, through testing, I've also arrived at 35 is the correct number for Arahbo, Roar of the World
I like that you can Green Sun's Zenith a Dryad Arbor (Potentially on your upgrade list), but when you draw it, it will have summoning sickness so basically the same as an enters tapped land (can't be used the turn it enters), that downside makes it less viable in my opinion anyway.
I'm still struggling with my cats, I really want a "cat" based combo, just can't find any that are truly viable. Figured out one with Temur Sabertooth, but it's not good. I put Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder in because of the life gain / Felidar Sovereign but Spike Feeder on his own is just not a good draw. I have the creature tutors, so it's not impossible, but it's not a cat combo. I feel like Whitemane Lion should have something but so far nothing good I can come up with. Aluren is a good enabler but has terrifying downside. Maybe something with Cryptolith Rite or Felidar Guardian

I wouldn't say it's the runt of the litter so much. You just have to pick a theme. The three generals pretty much tell you exactly how to play the deck in one of three ways, so it's a matter of deciding which you like better and swapping out less helpful cards for better ones.
I chose to stay with Arahbo, Roar of the World but I'm sticking with the Equipment theme. It's mostly still tribal with the inclusion of guys like Stoneforge Mystic and Puresteel Paladin, as well as some specific tutors. I could just as easily chose Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith as my commander instead, but I like Arahbo's free Giant Growth.
But since you have Mirri as the lead, she doesn't lock you into a tribal strategy, so you can totally drop in token makers like Mycoloth (who just loves all the Ajani planeswalkers), Rhys the Redeemed, and the like. Honestly at that point I'd just rather run Rhys as the commander though.
Arahbo and Nazahn provide better utility overall, I think, unless you want to try to Crop Rotation a Maze of Ith with Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist as your go-to combo. But that's my biggest suggestion if you want to remain tribal.
On that note, I recommend Fleetfoot Panther and Sabertooth Nishoba. The former has flash and can either save a creature, let you reuse an ETB, or even bounce itself for a 3cmc removal when paired with Qasali Slingers or Aura Shards. The latter is just a good beatstick with good evasion - a bit lesser known. Also, a monsterous Fleecemane Lion equipped with Worldslayer has won me nearly all my matches.
Anyway, my deck has served me well, so feel free to check it out for ideas if you want.
