Creature — Cat
: Monstrosity 1. (If this creature isn't monstrous, put a +1/+1 counter on it and it becomes monstrous.)
As long as Fleecemane Lion is monstrous, it has hexproof and indestructible.

Fleecemane Lion Discussion

I would consider using maybe Sram, Senior Edificer or Season of Growth instead of the Satyr Enchanter I would also recommend Slippery Bogle because it functions the same as the gladecover scouts, maybe take out Fleecemane Lion? seems a bit slow.

Thanks for the comment!
With all the Lords I'm imagining it like a budget casual version of Merfolk. Something like Aether Vial would probably be a good non-budget option.
Qasali Pridemage was in my initial list, but I cut it after Feline Sovereign was spoiled (since they offer similar utility). My meta is quite casual and not very artifact / enchantment heavy. Exalted was nice alongside Adorned Pouncer, however.
I looked at Leonin Vanguard initially (and it's run in the MTGGoldfish list I based mine one), but I found it a bit too conditional. I think if I were to run a conditional 1 drop it would be Loam Lion (plus Terramorphic Expanse and Canopy Vista ).

for a tribal deck like this i would either recommend ramp or dropping the mana curve a little, so when you get down the second cat anthem effect you have a nice sized board to take advantage with
my recommendations would be 2Qasali Pridemage its cheap and the utility can be pretty useful
4Leonin Vanguard as your a pretty aggressive deck having another one drop would be particularly useful (also this one gains life for pridemate even when not attacking)
3Fleecemane Lion its aggressive body with a cheap cmc, and late game it basily becomes unkillable.
some solid spell wise i would recommend 2 Selesnya Charm, for 2 reasons, first blessed alliance can only kill attacking creatures and not big blockers, and secondly the best way of utilizing a 4/4 double stiker is by pumping it and giving it trample

Hey, a little more info about Elemental Bond and how good of a repeatable draw source it can be because you have easy access to Kaheera, the Orphanguard's +1/+1 anthem for Cats. Bond triggers when tokens are created that's a reason it has so much potential with Cats. Anthem effects are called static abilities and each one is applied to Cats as they enter the battlefield.
King of the Pride is the best example of how good Bond can be as a draw source because any 1/1 Cat ETB with 3 power which triggers Bond. Bond + King + Brimaz, King of Oreskos/Leonin Warleader for example when you attack can create 3 power Cats and draw a card when each one is created. White Sun's Zenith creates 2/2 Cats, but with Kaheera these Cats ETB as 3/3s; each Cat will trigger Bond which can draw a lot of cards. Kemba, Kha Regent creates 2/2 Cats which with Kaheera are 3/3s when they ETB which triggers Bond each time.
Having two anthem effects on the battlefield such as Kaheera and Regal Caracal also makes any 1/1 Cat ETB as 3/3 to trigger Bond. In fact if you have Bond + Kaheera on the battlefield then Regal will draw three cards when it ETB.
There's two Ajani's that are budget and their ultimates create Cat tokens: Ajani, Caller of the Pride and Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants. Both these Ajani's +1 loyalty abilities can give Cats permanent pump with +1/+1 counters, but they do other things also. Adversary is the better of the two because it's -7 is not hard to achieve, a turn faster than Caller and if you get the emblem it's a repeatable source of creating Cats at your end step. Adversary can also provides something that Selesnya wants which is creature reanimation. Ajani can reanimate a one or two drop Cat such as Bronzehide Lion or Fleecemane Lion which can be helpful to recover.

what do u think about Rakshasa Deathdealer as a mutate target? I also had some loose thoughts about cards like Fleecemane Lion with Outlast Abzan Falconer (but those are humans... scratch that thought)

I'd focus on enchantment ramp (à la Wild Growth, Wolfwillow Haven, Overgrowth and Sheltered Aerie) over the artifact ramp and things like Rampant Growth. This could be supplemented with things like Arbor Elf, Voyaging Satyr and Blossom Dryad.
To my mind, if things like Ancestral Mask, Soul's Majesty and Rishkar's Expertise are working out, it's because you're already winning. I'd rather run things like Gryff's Boon, Messenger's Speed and Madcap Skills - I'd also work on reducing the overall CMC of your enchantments.
I'd also think about adding something else you can win with (if Uril becomes uncastable or is otherwise removed). Fleecemane Lion could carry a handful of aura's. Alternatively, Siona, Captain of the Pyleas + Shielded by Faith with Emblem of the Warmind or Fires of Yavimaya.

I'd consider either the desserts (Shefet Dunes, Hashep Oasis) since they can make colored and colorless mana, or some utility lands like Field of Ruin and Mutavault. You'll need to mess around to figure out what you like best (I'd try to include field of ruin since you really need to slow combo decks down in order to have a chance), and remember that Zirda reduces land activated abilities too.
As for what to take out, I'd try 1 Blossoming Defense, 1 Sunblade Elf, and 1 Fleecemane Lion for 3 displacer, but I haven't played the deck and you'll need to test. Keep in mind that your mana is going to be less consistent because of the format switch and added colorless, so Sunblade and Fleecemane are going to be less consistent turn 1 and 2 plays.
