Glittering Lynx Discussion

I do not like Pouncing Jaguar , the echo is just too annoying and plenty of 1 drop cats exist. Glittering Lynx , Charmed Stray , etc. Pendelhaven tends to be better than a forest for these cards as well.

Lost Leonin can result in earlier kills than any cat opening and dramatic boosts from Duelist's Heritage and Silverblade Paladin similarly speed up kills. Combined with Lost Leonin you can occasionally steal a turn 3 kill. You might find Rhonas the Indomitable

I'm also surprised at the lack of Rancor and Steelshaper's Gift . Darksteel Plate seems slow and does little and Ajani, the Greathearted doesn't look remarkable.

Life's Legacy and Hunter's Insight create a remarkable amount of advantage and Lifecrafter's Bestiary is surprisingly effective, the scry is surprisingly strong for the deck given its natural redundancy issues and the draws just build up advantage.

Krosan Vorine is nice creature removal that happens to be a cat. You seem to be avoiding creature-based spot removal, which I find surprising to the extent you aren't even running Swords to Plowshares , which I guess was an intentional meta call.

A higher-curved call like Regal Caracal seems a bit slow for cat plays, I'd prefer The Great Henge , where a 5 power cat, (original power of 2 with Arahbo boost), gets it to be a 5 drop, or even a 4 drop with 6 power from those 3 original powered cats, etc.

Nifty list. I don't have the cards or meta that you do, playing a more casual styled meta, and I play 1 v 1 30 life commander, so my list is very different, though in many cases I can see why we have different cards. But there are some things that I am curious about and I do have some suggestions. Hopefully you find some of them helpful.

Pouncing Jaguar has 2 power for a 1 drop cat, but 1 mana echo seems very annoying. Steppe Lynx may need landfall, but I imagine in the early turns this is achievable and you can save your mana for other things. Given your artifact hate I imagine players will trigger Leonin Elder often enough to give little life boosts. Glittering Lynx can also be randomly annoying for a 1 drop cat. Sure, they aren't 2 power starters, but at the start neither is Leonin Vanguard , which you run as an early game pressure card.

Do you love your life so much for your lifegain plan to use Spirit Loop ? I'm not sure I'd use a card with little other purpose. Given your buffs standards Battle Mastery seems ok, Silverblade Paladin should be a favorite, a creature to tutor for combos with cats, especially Lost Leonin , is good alongside its own 2/2 double strike frame. Grafted Wargear is nice, though I suppose with artifact removal the drawback stings, though it can't be much worse than a combat tricked creature removal on king of the pride. Still, grafted is faster than Heirloom Blade .

Hunting Cheetah may be a cat, but at that speed I would think Hunter's Insight should be a valid set-up card.

Pendelhaven is a better forest in most cases, a free 1 power boost in addition to being an untapped green source. I have enjoyed Mutavault as getting under the radar as a cat land. For ramp is burning a and to draw so good to use it over nature's lore or an artifact like Arcane Signet , even with your artifact hate out?

Skyhunter Skirmisher eats life quickly, though as a 3 drop that needs Arahbo to sink into it you might find it slow and weak to removal's tempo. Rhonas serves as such 3 drop support with a bit of added mana sink damage. As far as swarm boosts go Metallic Mimic is an early game 2 drop cat option that rewards swarming multiple cats.

Hi Spirits, did you ever consider Glittering Lynx? It's quite difficult to remove and can really slow your opponent down.

Cards to cut

ajani's pridemate - just a bigish dude, I think this could be better as a 1 drop anything

ajani's sunstriker - I think Trained Caracal is better

Jareth, leonine titan - too expensive CMC

jazal goldmane - expensive overrun, might be worth keeping in after you lower the curve a lot. I'd keep an eye on it to see if it preforms

sunspear skikari - there should be another cat you can run that dosen't need another card to be good

wily bandar - might be better as Glittering Lynx, force your opponents to pay mana to kill it instead of you paying to save it

I think the preconstructed deck added lots of ramp that you might not need, so maybe cut some of the ramp?

sigarda's aid - i think you've already cut this, I still think it's not great

mirari's wake - you're not ramping into anything really huge anymore, not sure it's nessary anymore

nissa's pilgrimage - cultivate and kodama's reach are better.

traverse the outlands - big ramp spell to play your 1-3 CMC cats? Great card, but i think it's better in another style of deck

door of destinies - i think you wanna run out your little cats early, kinda blunting the effectivness of this card

grappling hook - costs so much to play and equip

sword of the animist - minimal stat boost, might be upgraded to some other equipment

kindred summons - make sure you play as an instant or you might get blown up by a wrath.

white sun's zenith - we're cutting a lot of ramp, making this less good

I really hope to see this deck wrecking the table soon and I think with some changes it will be!!!
