Cast Berserk only before the combat damage step.

Target creature gains trample and gets +X/+0 until end of turn, where X is its power. At the beginning of the next end step, destroy that creature if it attacked this turn.

DRACULA150704 on Close Your Eyes (And Count to Ten)

so why can't you play Invigorate & Berserk?, Invigorate is my favourite tool in my infect deck- it is like Mutagenic Growth, but better!

@DRACULA150704 This is a Modern deck. Not a legacy deck. If it were a legacy deck, i would certainly be playing Invigorate and Berserk. I also cannot afford Misty Rainforests right now, so i'm sticking to Windswept Heaths.

Nice but not good enough.

Take out Vines of Vastwood for Invigorate, Take out Windswept Heath for Misty Rainforest, take out Become Immense & Apostle's Blessing for Berserk and just try running 6 different buffs (thats all you need) all with 4 of

A few thoughts on this list, no particular order:

You're running quite a few lands that ETB tapped. Mosswort Bridge, Secluded Steppe, Stirring Wildwood, and Tranquil Thicket. In order to keep my own Arahbo deck more on the aggressive side, I've opted to exclude most lands that come in tapped. I did keep a handful, like Temple of Plenty however. Still, with less tap lands you may be able to get your artifacts on your creatures more quickly.

Speaking of lands, there are some notable exclusions I'm curious about. I see you're running Vanquisher's Banner from Ixalan, but haven't included Unclaimed Territory ! This card is a weaker Cavern of Souls, but nonetheless provides great fixing for your cats. I think it would be worth your while to slot it in.

Looking at your 1 drops, I very much like that you've included Gryff's Boon, but I feel your deck could also use Rancor. It works similarly in that it recurs itself, and trample practically guarantees damage goes through. Other 1 drops to consider would be Berserk, which serves as both pump and removal (I'd replace Path to Exile with it, personally) as well as Enlightened Tutor for better card selection than what Steelshaper's Gift could offer.

How have Lightning Greaves been working for you? Shroud prevents you from using eminence on your equipped cats, so I've been hesitant to slot it back into my own deck.

While they provide some card draw, Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, and especially Dreamstone Hedron have always felt underwhelming to me. As mana rocks, Mind Stone is on the worthwhile side as it is cheap, but Archive and Dreamstone don't scale as well. If you're going for the mana, Gilded Lotus is a better bet, whereas if you're going for the draw, Rishkar's Expertise is only 6 mana for 3 cards minimum and cheating of mana costs when Dreamstone effectively takes NINE.

Speaking of Mana Rocks, I'm not sure if Commander's Sphere is worth an extra mana for the cantrip. Talisman of Unity can be dropped off of a Turn 1 Sol Ring to really ramp you up!

If you're using Strata Scythe, I'd imagine you'd want to be running Traverse the Outlands alongside it. You can effectively double your equipped creatures power with this combo!

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

Thanks MegaMatt13. Will digest and figure out what to cut to get them in.

Berserk has been in and out, I thought the same about the removal aspect of it too which is cool, especially if it's attacking an opponent in a Multi-Player pod. Have to find room.

Pride of Lions I keep going back and forth on, the idea is to tutor trample, Green Sun's Zenith into Rhonas the Indomitable or Steelshaper's Gift into Loxodon Warhammer, or Arahbo, Roar of the World last ability... so Trample overcomes all but the toughness of the blocker anyway, where Pride of Lions does that extra damage, but then gets killed probably without actually killing his blocker either (Because if the blocker can't kill him why did they block him in the first place, and he does no damage to the blocker). He's good, should find something to out for him.

Metallic Mimic is really borderline, I think about his interaction with Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Kemba, Kha Regent, Pride Sovereign + Regal Caracal (Especially for my Felidar Sovereign win-con), Ajani, Caller of the Pride. I originally had more, like White Sun's Zenith and some others, but there are less. Metallic Mimic on his own isn't that exciting 2/1 for . He's definitely high on the cut list.

Puresteel Paladin + Leonin Shikari makes Eminence and Lightning Greaves a viable option together, but its janky. I cut Sword of Light and Shadow and Sword of Feast and Famine already because of the same issues. It's really the haste more than the protection I want anyway since Selsnya is quite limited for haste.

Both suggestions Heirloom Blade and Fireshrieker are great, I'm struggling a bit with which cards to cut, and worried about getting too few cats.

Thanks for the feedback, MUCH appreciated.

Just came over and checked out your deck...very nice :)

Definitely looks like your meta is more competitive than mine so I appreciate the different selections you've put in the deck.

From your maybelist I would definitely consider adding Heirloom Blade and Fireshrieker. You have cats that care about being equipped. Heirloom blade basically ensures that you will always have a backup cat when one gets destroyed (and the power buff is great). Fireshrieker is a low cost double strike enabler.

I also like Berserk as it can be a surprise win or be used on an opponent's attacking creature when they attack someone else as a form of removal spell.

Pride of Lions from your maybelist is a surprise star in my deck. I know 5 mana for a 4/4 sounds really bad, but with him you KNOW your damage is getting through. They will be taking 7 damage with eminence (or 14 with double strike or Arahbo's second ability).

I ended up cutting Metallic Mimic. I usually only want 1 or 2 cats on the battlefield. Its single +1/+1 counter wasn't impactful enough. The mimic is great in "go wide" decks.

I also go back and forth on Lightning Greaves. It is a "non-bo" with Eminience. It does have value in protecting Arahbo himself when he is on the battlefield though.

This isn't Modern legal... Berserk and Invigorate weren't printed in Modern legal sets. You may, however, play this in Legacy.

That being said, regardless of what format you choose to play this in, you still will want more than 4x creatures. Inkmoth Nexus, Ichorclaw Myr, Blight Mamba, and Rot Wolf are great as playsets of each if you're staying Mono .
