Fleecemane Lion Discussion
19 hours ago
I focused on Lost Leonin and the power of the Eminence trigger with him. Ajani, Caller of the Pride is perfect with him to win, but I also found Duelist's Heritage (Works good with most other cats too!) and Berserk (Works with double strike cats or to remove an opponents creature), both make him more powerful. The nice thing of Duelist's Heritage is that it can be tutored with Enlightened Tutor or Idyllic Tutor or other like Academy Rector whatever your preference.
In my testing too I found that good cats over lots of cats was more efficient, thus why I play Sylvan Tutor, Eladamri's Call and Worldly Tutor which pull either Lost Leonin or Felidar Sovereign for the most part. I also run Green Sun's Zenith usually pulling Rhonas the Indomitable or Fleecemane Lion, another viable good target would be Birds of Paradise which can act as another CMC 2 mana ramp, but I haven't got that in just yet, still testing.
I also found Triumph of the Hordes to work good with the Cat + Eminence theme. I have a Sword of Feast and Famine in my binder, but chose not to include it for now because the protection prevents the Eminence trigger, but it's a good sword, if you have something to do with the extra mana. The problem is for Arahbo, Roar of the World you can overload the cats and then still play during post-combat main phase. I don't run a cat horde/token synergy so that's why I choose not to run it.
Rhonas the Indomitable is awesome, 5/5 indestructible deathtouch and he can attack with ANY cat + eminence trigger! Talk about Aggro tempo for . Darksteel Forge is pretty expensive, and I dont think the artifacts are the key to winning with Arahbo, Roar of the World in my opinion. Puresteel Paladin is amazing for the draw! Keep him! Trailblazer's Boots I'd honestly rather put more trample enablers instead, but I've seen other deck play the evasion angle too.
I'd rather have some more draw, like Hunter's Insight than a VERY High CMC Jareth, Leonine Titan. Only gets the +7 when blocking, so not really the greatest. I know he's hard to remove, and has the built in evasion, but too much.
I've had good success with Chameleon Colossus, his built in ability means you don't need to cast Arahbo, Roar of the World and he can proc well with things like Duelist's Heritage, Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Berserk and Equipment. I elected to go Stonehewer Giant over Stoneforge Mystic but won't discourage you there, she is awesome.
Don't see a lot of abilities, like Mirari's Wake in your deck, so not sure the need for White Sun's Zenith what some 2/2 cats are going to really accomplish for you, except with maybe a Triumph of the Hordes or something. I'm trying to work Metallic Mimic back into my deck, In testing I found him too slow for my taste, but he would be good with White Sun's Zenith as well.
I find Loxodon Warhammer better than Behemoth Sledge because of the extra offense, but with Felidar Sovereign I play both, also like the Basilisk Collar just hate doesn't have any +X to the power, but the deathtouch helps with the evasion factor anyway.
I've had others question my use of Pride Sovereign, I'm undecided on him right now, just lack of Cats with real utility why he remains pretty much. Puresteel Paladin + Bloodforged Battle-Axe is an awesome interaction, but in testing I found Bloodforged Battle-Axe was a little too slow without him around for me.
I don't play as much control, which is why things like Godsend don't make the 99. Cat's aren't here to block, unless you run a Qasali Ambusher most can't even block flyers Skyhunter Skirmisher obviously being an exception, and let's be real, noone is going to walk into an unfavorable blocking situation and have anything of value exiled with Godsend. Accepting cats dont block well, it means it's your opponents choice which creatures to get exiled or not, It doesn't hit opponents commanders, and unless they are playing a unburial type deck, with commander format being singleton it's not stopping recast of anything in the majority of circumstances. Anyway just my thought on that.
Best of luck. I'm always continuing to develop, so hopefully with have some better insights in the future. +1

The only creature in my meta that routinely has hexproof or shroud is Fleecemane Lion, so Arcane Lighthouse has not made an appearance yet. Slayers' Stronghold was in the deck for a while. It was a pseudo-Pillow Fort in that I could offer to boost other players' creatures if they don't attack me, and the added boost was nice for mine occasionally. I never had it make an effect on a game due to haste, but I could see that it could. When I took it out, the land slots in the deck were limited. It was removed to make room for Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion. I guess both Arcane Lighthouse and Slayers' Stronghold could take a basic slot if needed. They are nice utility lands that would add a little something to the deck.

You need to cut 21 cards to make this deck viable as a commander deck. I'd suggest you cut the following ones because they're either not in theme with your deck, too expensive for what they can do, counter productive or you simply already have better alternatives in your deck:
- Rogue's Passage;
- Angel of Jubilation;
- Chameleon Colossus;
- Fleecemane Lion;
- Stonehewer Giant;
- Wilt-Leaf Liege;
- Elspeth, Sun's Champion;
- Phantom Nishoba;
- Angelic Armaments;
- Argentum Armor;
- Armory of Iroas;
- Chitinous Cloak;
- Coat of Arms;
- Loxodon Warhammer;
- Staff of Nin;
- Rishkar's Expertise;
- Beastmaster Ascension;
- Collective Blessing;
- Dueling Grounds;
- Oath of Ajani.
Hope this helps.

i would recommend Fleecemane Lion just overall is a great card for two mana and they need to kill it if they want to stop the ability. also would recommend bringing in that Brimaz, King of Oreskos from maybe board.

Anastasius: This is an interesting take on , but in my personal opinion - could use a small amount of work. I feel that you need a few more aggresive threats and maybe a Planeswalker or two. I like Sorin, Solemn Visitor. I also think that maybe (maybe) Fleecemane Lion is very nice, for just . I also like Rakshasa Deathdealer.
bsherrer: This person's finances and ability to have fun, construct a deck, and or post what ever they want onto the Tappedout community - is entirely irrelevant. They are...what, $14 dollars out of budget range (depending who you ask) and that qualifies questioning. Interesting. I feel that this is actually a a well designed 75 -that does not cost 100's or even potentially 1000's. Help them out. You are among one of the budget Kings/Queens on this site.

Whirler Rogue! I loved that card, paired it with Willbreaker for some busted turns.
My most popular deck by far was Temur Ascendancy COMBO. Turn 6 draw your deck, destroy everything your opponent control and attack with infinite sized hasty creatures.
But I could challenge any standard deck in the modern era to face down this beast:
SCORE: 14 | 23 COMMENTS | 2607 VIEWS | IN 4 FOLDERS
Green megamorph splash blue, my own innovation, dominated for 2 seasons despite my terrible play skills. It beat everything from Atarka Red (one of the most busted aggro decks ever) to Esper Control to all flavors of Abzan in between.
The game plan was the same against everybody: - Ramp into 5-drops Whisperwood Elemental and Prognostic Sphinx. Once you achieve that, you have unbreakable card advantage and board control.
- Courser of Kruphix provided life and land
- Deathmist Raptor came back over and over
- Den Protector rebought all your spells
- Counter magic was always ready to use because morphs and flash creatures could be played if nothing needs countering).
- And one-sided mass-removal in green: Setessan Tactics. And giant Polukranos, World Eater, who on a good day could eat anything your opponent has.
The game-locking combo was having Sphinx, Whisperwood and Courser. Sphinx would guarantee every turn a free land for Courser, a great manifest for Whisperwood and a good draw off the top. That's 3 cards per turn. Or if there's a problem, you could dig so fast through your deck to find an answer. You could even pull off crazy shenanigans like blocking with a manifested instant, let it die, then flip up a Den Protector and cast it.
And the sideboard was outstanding for the colors:- Clever Impersonator to copy and steal an enemy Dragonlord Silumgar
- Hornet Nest to flood the world with flying deathhtouch.
- Polymorphist's Jest to laugh at even Dragonlord Ojutai or monstrous Fleecemane Lion
- and sometimes, Aspect of Hydra. +10/+10 for 1 mana anybody?
