Creature — Cat
Mutate (If you cast this spell for its mutate cost, put it ontop or underneath target non-Human creature you own. They mutate into the creature that is on top and that creature has all the abilities of every card that is underneath it.)
Whenever this creature mutates, create two 1/1 white Cat creature tokens with lifelink.

MrBoombastic Thanks for your thoughts!
I've taken consideration on the lands, and cutted 4 Fabled Passage for 1 Forest and 1 Plains. The other two were for Sunpetal GroveI would still leave 2 Unclaimed Territory just for early game mana fix.
I've added some creature cards in the "Maybe" zone for 1 or 2 Heroic Intervention maybe.

I'm more of a dog person myself, but these felines look fierce though!
A few ideas for optimization:
There are plenty of good dual lands in Pioneer, so Unclaimed Territory shouldn't be necessary. It makes your instants harder to cast and the abilities on your cats harder to activate. I'd play the full 4x Sunpetal Grove instead.
I know Fabled Passage helps thinning out your deck, but you're already fairly low on lands. With only 2 colors, you aren't in dire need of the fixing and any potential tapped land could hurt your tempo.
Heroic Intervention is a great sideboard card, but I probably wouldn't play all 4 copies in the main - more room for cats. Remember that Collected Company wants a very high density to be able to consistently hit 2 creatures.
That was my 2 cents. Good luck!

-1 Kaheera, the Orphanguard, -1 Cubwarden +2 Feline Sovereign note this new cat lord is NOT Legendary. it does not give cats Vigilance. but gives a removal effect. and throws shit out of table XD... which seems great.

The answer is both cases is that the creature has no abilities.
Magic uses a system of layers to determine the characters of game objects, such as creatures. These layers are checked constantly throughout the game to determine what's what. In total, there are 7 layers. The first layer determines the copiable values of something. Mutate and Clone effects are about the only things that apply here. This is where a creature in a mutation pile will get its extra abilities from the cards that aren't on top. A few layers later, we get to layer 6. Ability-adding/removing effects do their thing here. This is where Oko, Thief of Crowns will remove the abilities of a mutation pile. Since that pile already has the abilities from its cards, all of those abilities are stripped.
Let's run through a quick example. You have a Cubwarden on top with a Gemrazer on the bottom. From layer 1, the creature with have all the abilities of the two creatures put together. When it gets Oko-ed, it will lose those abilities in layer 6 because its abilities were merged together several layers prior.
Layers are kind of confusing, so if you have more questions, just ask.
Quick side note, you said that you're a Modern player, you do know that Oko is banned in Modern, right? Just making sure.
Hope this helps!!

I'm currently toying with removing some of the mutate creatures (Cubwarden, Dreamtail Heron. Cloudpiercer) in favor of bounce-able creatures like Glitterfang that allow me to recast Vadrok for her mutate ability multiple times. Any feedback there would be helpful.

Hey everyone! I'm considering the following Ikoria and C20 cards, would love to know everyone's thoughts:
First and most importantly: Mutate cards! See the new section in the primer about them and Elenda!
Next, some maybe great cards, or maybe just for fun:

The above comment about sums it up for me, unless you were planning to take it in a combo or other kind of direction! Here are some good Nethroi targets that have low power but make tokens or have good effects when they enter:
Deep Forest Hermit
Ghave, Guru of Spores
Trostani Discordant Trostani's Summoner
Here are some 0-power utility creatures to consider, because they're free to reanimate if they get killed:
Birds of Paradise
Embodiment of Agonies
Golgari Grave-Troll (also a great include because Dredge can fill your GY)
And you'll also want at least a few additional Mutaters in case you have Nethroi out and want to trigger it again:
...all seem like good includes.
Hope this gives you a good place to start and a list of interesting cards to consider. Many are very affordable. Now I kinda want to make a Nethroi deck.
