Enlightened Ascetic Discussion

Sundering Growth is incredibly unlikely to produce value through the populate trigger, as you have about 5 token-producing cards. What do you think about Broken Bond, Nature's Claim, Spring Cleaning, Gleeful Sabotage, or Felidar Cub or Enlightened Ascetic for more cat synergy? All are at a comparable cost to what you have currently.

Adorned Pouncer is a must with arahbo. Turning that 1/1 into a 4/4 with doublestrike which swings by turn 3 is nasty and sweet. I do notice as well you haven't included Skyhunter Skirmisher, a considerable powerhouse for the deck being a 4/4 with double strike but with the added benefit of built in evasion on flying for a single more mana. Enlightened Ascetic brings some enchantment removal in the form of a body that can hit for 4 if needed. Leonin Relic-Warder brings in some similar effect. Krosan Vorine is a cat which goes under the radar but with provoke and a little boost from Arahbo, 6/5 going for heads in the field ain't a joke. Leonin Shikari is rather useful if you are going for the equipment approach on Nazahn. Oreskos Explorer acts as a Gift of Estates with a good body for arahbo to boost. Sure we are running Green and have access to better ramp but it is good to consider. Pride Sovereign, out kitty overlord, can get very big with a good White Sun's Zenith or even a Regal Caracal coming into play.

Mirari's Wake was part of the precon and comes along nicely with the deck. It gives you the ability to slam more than a single big cat at once or cast a colossal Zenith.

For a little Go Wide strategy, Overwhelming Stampede can help a bit, even at sorcery speed.

For the final touch. That new Bladehold Kitty from M19 comes in nicely for any cat dek i believe.

might wanna consider cards like Ravenous Chupacabra,or Enlightened Ascetic i know they are not exactly the big boys you are looking for, but they interact with the board in a way that your limited amount of non-permanants restricts you from doing

as for Jeskai Student isn't Elusive Spellfist just better in a different color?

Possible Enlightened Ascetic for flavor in side if you see a lot of enchentments.

I really like Stratus Dancer in something like this too. its not really expected. Maybe in side vs slower decks. It's a good monk control card

Jeskai Infiltrator Just looks fun

Hi Acute19,

I like Qasali Pridemage because of the Exalted, and the secondary ability, which also does Artifacts (and Enchantments)

I like Enlightened Ascetic because he ETB destroys an enchantment.

I don't like Felidar Cub because he has no primary abilities, and has to sacrifice to activate (worst of the bunch), I would exclude him. Cats aren't the police of the board, can't do everything!

I'd rather have a Leonin Relic-Warder over a Felidar Cub, because he exiles, think Purphoros, God of the Forge. Plus Leonin Relic-Warder can have combos built around him with Oblivion Ring where they flicker each other in and out.

My thoughts anyway.
