Well are you aware of the defeat cycle of uncommons?

Jace's Defeat, Gideon's Defeat, Liliana's Defeat, and so on?

Also the HOU artbook in summary already tells us too.

Gideon's Defeat, Jace's Defeat, Liliana's Defeat, Chandra's Defeat, Nissa's Defeat, though those are in HOU, so I don't know if you want them included just yet.

I'd recommend going to Gatherer and setting the search bar to look for each color and basic land type, one a a time, in card texts. It's pretty easy, though a bit time consuming, but it's going to be much more effective than asking people for cards off the top of their head.

This list is one of the most solid cat tribal lists on TappedOut! I really like your creature base and choice of spells. That said, for a tribal deck, you really should add a few more creatures (total 23-25). I would definitely cut 2 Blessed Alliance for 2 Metallic Mimic. You may want to fill out your curve with a few more 2 drops as well, depending on your preferences. You could definitely cut 1-2 Cast Out or Appeal / Authority. Finally, the sideboard. You don't really need anything specific. Just go for what seems to work against the people you usually play. Forsake the Worldly, Gideon's Defeat, Nissa's Defeat, and Cataclysmic Gearhulk come to mind for me.

I'm assuming you're talking about Gideon's Defeat, and while this is a good card, i cant see it being played mainboard in any deck as it has little relevance against a lot of decks (I play mono-black in standard). However They may still side this in against you if you're running white creatures as its a very good removal in the right circumstances. Gideon's Defeat also cant be used unless you attack with Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and if you feel/know they are holding the card, then you can change your gameplan by emblem-ing gideon or making a steady stream of 2/2 knights instead, meaning your opponent would have to use the removal on a creature eventually instead of gideon.
