Hi foxes101,

Do you have a specific budget in mind, Under $40, Under $50?

I do have a $50 budget Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist which is a cat-only tribal deck, Mirri, Little Kid Aggro $50 EDH. Might find some interesting budget ideas in there.

I also have a non-budget Arahbo, Roar of the World, it's still a work-in-process, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

Riptide Replicator seems really awful, it requires for a cat, so your hoping it's at least 5/5 or more, which means the initial cost is =5 + = . That's a terrible conversion. I understand you want to build your board position since your cats pump each other, but Riptide Replicator is not the way to go.

Stir the Pride is way too high a CMC for it's modular (or Entwine) abilities. I would take that one out.

Bloodline Shaman I assume is trying to help the draw, which in turn kind-of helps the Bonehoard as well, so let's go with that for now, but is an Elf, not a cat. Creative budget drawing at least.

Qasali Slingers is a nice control for Artifacts and Enchantments, plus hes a 3/5 reach.

Balan, Wandering Knight might consider, but with only 13 equipment targets, understand why he's not in there.

Jazal Goldmane might be a bit better, because he's 4/4 first strike, but he can pump all the horde of cats.

Beastmaster Ascension feels like 100% necessary in this, to pump all your 1/1 token cats. I think this will be a primary goal for winning in this budget format.

Hunter's Insight is a better draw then some of the "janky" draw mechanics in budget, to a lesser degreeSoul's Majesty / Hunter's Prowess also work but are Sorcery and susceptible to instant removal.

Skyhunter Skirmisher has build in evasion and double strike (cat) if you can get him an Equipment or 2. Rancor?

Crown of Vigor is not every exciting a 1-shot +1/+1, with a static +1/+1 for 1 creature, not fantastic.

Mask of Memory might help with the draw as well.

Hungry Lynx, originally I thought this guy would be amazing, but all he does is create problems (deathtouch rats), and I've never had him successfully pump my cats before being removed. I took him out, mechanic didn't work.

Uktabi Wildcats, this guy only worthwhile if you have 5 Forest, remember, Tranquil Expanse / Selesnya Sanctuary are not forest unless they say "Forest" on them, so with a max size of 11, he's rarely going to be a 5, so no other abilities, not worth the CMC .

Do you not find you get board-wiped and that is the end? I would run at least a couple protections, like Make a Stand or Rootborn Defenses or Dusk (recur all power 2 - 19 targets right now).

Soul Snare is another janky type Condemn, always Oblivion Ring.

Whitemane Lion combos infinite with lost of , but enablers might not work in the budget. There is Infinite creature (several) enablers, Infinite Ramp enablers, etc. Him and Fleetfoot Panther run the show. Could be an interesting way to get some combo going, not sure how combos are viewed in your budget pod.

Lost Leonin can also put some infect pressure on people, but without support (like Silverblade Paladin/Ajani, Caller of the Pride/that white enchantment that gives 1 creature double strike/etc to make him a single hit kill. He's still a 2 hit-Eminence win-con though. Unless no infect allowed, he will eliminate players just with Eminence on occasion. If you can Grappling Hook him or enable doublestrike elsewise (like Raksha Golden Cub). Often he comes out early enough. It's my initial strategy in my Arahbo, Roar of the World but I use mass-creature tutor.

+1.

Thanks Gattison! I'm really grateful for the advice. I agree about Wings of Velis Vel, I was mostly thinking about turning that Coiling Oracle into a friend that can swing in the air but your plan is much better and harder to avoid. Giant Growth will be added.

I thought about Crown of Vigor, but I chose to go with Crown of Ascension because it can give all of my creatures flying if I give it to Mothdust Changeling or Woodland Changeling, which usually closes out the game, or it means winning the following turn. I figured evasion might be more important in that case, but if you have any strong recommendations as to what to cut in place of it, I could definitely find a place if you think it'd make the deck better.

Additionally, thank you for the advice on lands. I would say I'm a bit of a rookie when it comes to brewing, and so it's super helpful to learn about the proportional things that can make my deck more fluid.

All in all I'm very happy with this feedback, thanks for helping out! Happy brewing and playtesting to you too!

Hey there, interesting build. I like obscure stuff like this. I do have some ides for you, too.

First of all, with an average CMC of just over 2.0, 25 lands seems way high. Do you draw too many lands if games go to 10-15+ turns? I would try 20, maybe 21 lands in this deck, personally.

With those four new slots, how about some draw, such as Ponder, Brainstorm, Serum Visions... hell, even Divination or Counsel of the Soratami would work nice because Coiling Oracle can help you ramp.

If not draw power, then maybe recursion? like Reclaim? or protection, like Ranger's Guile?

Also, I would only do 3-of Simic Growth Chamber & Thornwood Falls each. Full playsets (4-ofs) are for cards you don't mind seeing in your opening hand, 3-of is for when you want to draw into it every game, but don't want it clogging up your opener. You seem to know this, but I'm just being clear. You don't want slow-lands on T1-T3.

Wings of Velis Vel seems like an under-performer here. All your creatures are already aurochs, so you don't need the second part. I think you'd be better off with the classic Giant Growth. it costs less, and if you use it on an Aurochs Herd, it'll become a 7/7, not remain a 4/4.

Crown of Ascension definitely seems cool here, though. Crown of Vigor might fit in as well, if you have any space left. happy playtesting!

EDIT: Also, you should add the "Aggro" and "Tribal" hubs to your deck's categories for maximum exposure. As well as "U/G Simic."
