Felidar Sovereign Discussion

Skyhunter Cub seems like there are better targets for the equipment, could be a Felidar Sovereign, spikes your mana curve a bit, but not unreasonably.

Stoneforge Masterwork could be a Felidar Sovereign, if it's big your just asking for a boardwipe, if the board has been cleared, it's probably less utility than your ramping/lifelink equipment anyway. It's going to encourage you to over commit board presence, when you only have 1 eminence trigger anyway, better to be ready for rebuilding.

Sungrass Prairie could be a Felidar Sovereign, it's not a turn 1 land, and makes turn 2 problematic. 36 is actually what I play in normal commander, but have found that it's too much with all the ramp spell/draw/equipment in Arahbo, Roar of the World

Sylvan Reclamation could be a Felidar Sovereign, you have lots of Enchantment/Artifact removal, it does land cycle on turn 2 for sure, but it doesn't put the land in play, so not that utility. Normal cycling would be better.

Couple ideas for cut-list anyway. My deck is still a continual work in process unfortunately.

Spirits First of all, I can't help but be a little flattered that someone likes one of my decklist to the point where they take influence from it, so thank you very much indeed. You're comment certainly looks like it could help me out!

In an effort to keep the curve for cats relatively low, I haven't really tested Felidar Sovereign, although I have considered him. I think he defiantly makes sense, as giving lifelink on a massive creature should allow you to keep yourself over 40, as I've been as high as 82 life with this before. If you can think of what it could possibly replace then give me a shout!

I haven't actually been able to play Godsend much if I'm honest, but I think the exile effect is quite useful for when you don't have access to trample. That said, maybe another trample-granting card would be a better choice on reflection.

I personally have had great success with Hungry Lynx. I totally understand what your saying though, and on top of that I'd argue that putting counters "on each cat you control" is not really what an Arahbo deck wants to do. However, possibly the expendable nature of tokens, I find they die pretty often.

I'll have to reply to the rest later, I'm currently needing my bed ahaha. Thanks again!

Hi Dancing-Blade, using your deck to help build my own version of Arahbo, Roar of the World, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats

Noticed you have Lifelink, like Basilisk Collar/Loxodon Warhammer/Ajani, Mentor of Heroes/Etc. Why no Felidar Sovereign do you find you dont get over that 40 life barrier? Just interested, I was thinking of running him as an alternate-win con.

Does Godsend do enough work for it's High CMC? I originally thought about it, but it doesn't stop Commanders because they never get exiled by it, and Commander as it is, unless you run up against a heavy unburial deck does it do much else?

How have you found Hungry Lynx, I keep looking at him and thinking nope, when rats die awesome, but what if I load up my opponents with deathtouch rates, they remove the Hungry Lynx now I'm walking my cats into 1/1 deathtouch that I provided them, that sucks.

Oreskos Explorer being green and ramping, you usually have more lands than opponents? Is it worth the risk of not drawing him turn 1-4 where he might be viable?

Suprised to see Sylvan Reclamation, with so much artifact/enchantment control, Aura Shards, Qasali Slingers, Return to Dust etc, this one is HIGH CMC, but I'm guessing you just Cycle it and move on for the CMC2, and if you need it, then you have it?

I noticed ZendikariWol posted about Howling Mine and Alms Collector and Rites of Flourishing, I haven't posted on the community, but my gut tells me that doesn't work. Drawing an "additional" card, is not the same as "would draw two or more". I stand to be corrected but, Alms Collector with check on the turn draw, only 1 ok nothing, check on resolving the Howling Mine triggered ability, only 1 ok nothing, same for Rites of Flourishing. A Wheel of Fortune or Blue Sun's Zenith for sure there he makes his mark, but I think ZendikariWol assessment is incorrect.

I've had success with Rhonas the Indomitable, he is 5/5 Indestructible/Deathtouch for CMC3 and can always attack with ANY cat on the board. Although, he is not a Cat, he can give a Cat trample if it's blocked.

No Sylvan Library?

Soul Sisters is probably the most competitive deck you can play that directly obliterates Burn as an archetype. It's mono white, so the mana base is cheap, and has good matchups all across Modern and doesn't need to play narrow cards that only hit burn.

4x Soul Warden

4x Soul's Attendant

4x Martyr of Sands

4x Squadron Hawk

4x Ajani's Pridemate

4x Honor of the Pure

2x Ranger of Eos

4x Spectral Procession

4x Path to Exile

2x Mirran Crusader

1x Felidar Sovereign

1x Cast Out

22x Plains

It is basically impossible for Burn to beat Soul Sisters, the deck does well against other decks as well, and best of all IT'S CHEAP! Less than 60$ for a good Modern deck is a great place to start. Upon further investment, if you like the deck, you can make slight upgrades like Serra Ascendant, Mistveil Plains, and Archangel of Thune

This is my suggestion over playing very narrow cards that only do well against burn and not other decks, to me, it would be a waste of money to invest in such a deck.

Ajani's Pridemate seems like it would be a natural fit here, probably over Debt to the Deathless and Felidar Sovereign. I would recommend Rest for the Weary over Whitesun's Passage. Your land count also looks a little high; 24 or 25 should be plenty. A little more discard might help against combo; Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize are probably best but Duress is fine against most decks if you want to keep it budget.

I wonder how it would feel to die because someone had enough life to trigger Felidar Sovereign..

Hey there,

I see your average cmc is 2-4, playing 39 land might be a little much, you might want to switch to 37 instead. Celestial Dawn doesn't really do anything, for a 1 colour opponent you don't do anything and a 5 colour opponent you only help get his/her mana fix. Eye of the Storm, you only have 17 instants and sorceries considering you have played eye of the storm before you play any instants or sorceries you can cast 17 times the instants and sorceries under Eye of the Storm. Now imagine someone playing an izzet deck, that guy will go totally nuts by casting a ton of spells with Eye of the Storm and he will kill you with a whole lotta spells. Oblivion Ring and variants are great for zedruu, you exile something with Oblivion Ring and then you donate the Oblivion Ring. You gain life and cards and you have exiled something. Alhammarret's Archive will help you gain life and draw cards even more through zedruu. And a Laboratory Maniac as third win condition (next to Felidar Sovereign and Insurrection) can't hurt either.

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.
