: 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.

Maybe consider running Fleecemane Lion instead of Phantasmal Image ? You could also consider Savannah Lions instead of the 1x Sacred Cat , and maybe instead of a few of the Wild Nacatl s to reduce the likelihood that you'll need to fetch + shock for a red source you won't properly use. Pride Sovereign is another powerful cat, and Adaptive Automaton could even maybe find a place in this list.

Since your curve tops out at 4x a 5 drop, I'd also suggest trimming 2-3 lands.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

While I usually play with faster cost-effective setups I did tested a lot with something like this list, let me give you my impressions.

First, if you can find more copies of these cards you should run 4 of Qasali Pridemage , Loxodon Smiter , Wilt-Leaf Liege , Fleecemane Lion . These are the core cards that win the game, should max them out.

Second, you definietly want more creatures total. About 28-30 is nice and consistent, any fewer and you won't be able to keep a decent fighting force on the field. Add cheap common creatures like Llanowar Elves and 2 more Steward of Valeron to gain mana faster. Maybe a few heavy hitters like 1 more Oversoul of Dusk or Wolfir Silverheart . Or if you can find some of these Kitchen Finks Knight of Autumn Wilt-Leaf Cavaliers .

Third, too many basic lands. With that many same color sources it will be harder to cast the multicolored spells. Many games live or die by the stability of the mana base. The obvious but very pricey choice is Windswept Heath wich is nice with Knight of the Reliquary , or Temple Garden . Cheaper alternatives are Sunpetal Grove and Canopy Vista , cheapest is Selesnya Guildgate . Whatever you pick, you need more color stability.

2 more Dromoka's Command would be nice too, filling the removal/defense slot. Shapers' Sanctuary will often be a dead card if you opponent doesn't target your creatures, you could replace it with 2 more Shield of the Oversoul .

You don't need to go big money to make a nice Selesnya Midrange get competitive.

Ive seen decks similar to this. In fact I have one(Its Humans not Cats). You are missing a couple staple cats and some non-creature spells that could really help.

Fleecemane Lion - This is a winocn plain and simple

Collected Company - Can put most of yours creatures onto the battlefield at any given time and can easily swing a game in your favor.

Harmonize - Gives you much needed card draw

Blossoming Defense / Heroic Intervention - It can be played in your main board as an buff/anit board wipe

Now i should probably talk about some cards that probably shouldn't be in this deck. I understand if you own all these cards but if you do not, i don't think that there is any reason for them to be in here. If you have counter argument Id love to hear it.

Pacifism - It is honestly a removal spell but worse. Cut 2x Pacifism and have a playset of Path to Exile .

Heroes' Reunion - I'm sorry if you are going for a lifelink, but it just isn't worth to have a straight lifegain spell as apposed to say Collected Company or Blossoming Defense or something that gives you more value than simply 7 life.

Recumbent Bliss - See Pacifism

Disenchant - This is a card for your sideboard, something that you sub in when you need it

Survival Cache - im on the fence. I feel like there could be better options, but it seems to fit relatively well.

Soul Net - Isn't legal in Modern and doesn't really work regardless

Revisions

Id drop 2x Pasifism so that you have a playset of Path to Exile

-2x Recumbent Bliss and -2x Heroes' Reunion and -1 Disenchant for 3x Collected Company and 2x Blossoming Defense

id go for -1 Regal Caracal and -1 Brimaz, King of Oreskos for 2x Forest for more dependability.

You might also want to think about -2 Survival Cache for 2x Harmonize , but I think that these two cards are interchangeable.

In case you want to check out my humans deck here it is: Thalia's Horde of Humans but this is your deck and as such, you get the final say in any change.

I've no list but there are some neat cats to include:

Qasali Pridemage , Leonin Warleader , Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist , Regal Caracal , Jazal Goldmane , Qasali Slingers , Temur Sabertooth , Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Felidar Sovereign , Nacatl War-Pride , Jareth, Leonine Titan and Fleecemane Lion .

I know some of these came in the deck or are really obvious but the seem to be among the better ones, i think.
