Darksteel Plate Discussion

I do not like Pouncing Jaguar , the echo is just too annoying and plenty of 1 drop cats exist. Glittering Lynx , Charmed Stray , etc. Pendelhaven tends to be better than a forest for these cards as well.
Lost Leonin can result in earlier kills than any cat opening and dramatic boosts from Duelist's Heritage and Silverblade Paladin similarly speed up kills. Combined with Lost Leonin you can occasionally steal a turn 3 kill. You might find Rhonas the Indomitable
Life's Legacy and Hunter's Insight create a remarkable amount of advantage and Lifecrafter's Bestiary is surprisingly effective, the scry is surprisingly strong for the deck given its natural redundancy issues and the draws just build up advantage.
Krosan Vorine is nice creature removal that happens to be a cat. You seem to be avoiding creature-based spot removal, which I find surprising to the extent you aren't even running Swords to Plowshares , which I guess was an intentional meta call.
A higher-curved call like Regal Caracal seems a bit slow for cat plays, I'd prefer The Great Henge , where a 5 power cat, (original power of 2 with Arahbo boost), gets it to be a 5 drop, or even a 4 drop with 6 power from those 3 original powered cats, etc.

Notes: This deck has an absurdly low curve, and wants it's ramp in it's 1 slot, if it has much at all. Most good options are going to be a bit expensive if they're any good. Card draw shouldn't be a problem...pay attention to what problems you run into while playing. Are you stalling for a way to push through? Do you need creature removal that isn't board clear? ETC.

As for Basilisk Collar that is definitely something I think I'd like to include. With Nin, it would take me a turn getting rid of an opponents creature, unless I built in multiple ways to untap Nin at will so I can activate her ability several times a turn if needed.
From my play testing, if I don't draw stuffy I generally get it very soon with Nin's ability. But there have been a few games where stuffy is at the bottom and very difficult to aquire. But does show up once I get a tutor. I have been actively testing and trying to improve this deck over and over again.
Thank you for your comment, and suggestions. This is my favorite of all of my decks and I tend to it as soon as I find a positive change

ok .Lets see.
Archfiend of Despair is extrem expenssiv but fits perfectly to the topic.
you could cut:
- Yahenni's Expertise (it is not very effective a massremovle and hits to much of your creatures)
- Blessing of Leeches regenerate is not so strong, maybe switch it wich Darksteel Plate
- Guul Draz Assassin takes to long and to much Mana until he works
- you have a lot of creatuers how need to be blocked maybe you can the most expensive one for Lure

I think you need a bit more ramp to speed up the deck. You're playing green--why are you running the signet over more durable land ramp, especially when you only have 35 lands here? Rampant Growth , Nature's Lore , Cultivate , Diligent Farmhand , Wood Elves , Farhaven Elf , and Solemn Simulacrum are all cards I would pick before the signet. These will help you get Sigarda out sooner and give you staying power for the late game.
Also, if you're up against Sheoldred regularly, you might want to consider some more graveyard hate, like Scavenger Grounds , Tormod's Crypt , and Sentinel Totem . Sigarda will keep you from sacking but she won't prevent them from reanimating.
I would also swap one of your artifact/enchantment removal spells for Return to Nature , since it can exile something targeted by a reanimate effect.
Since you're aura-focused here, I would also think about Battle Mastery .
As for what you could cut to make room for some of these suggestions, I'd think about Flower / Flourish , Unflinching Courage , Dromoka's Command , Devouring Light , Indestructibility , Darksteel Plate , Bow of Nylea , and maybe one or two other targeted removal spells. You have a lot here.
