Yes, when I first built this deck, people at my local FNM seemed to focus on creature-heavy aggro and I could always beat them to a win-con. The meta has evolved, with a lot more control being played and I now need to add in removal to survive into a longer game.
My problem with Adorned Pouncer is the 5 mana needed to eternalise it. It is not really an early-game card, but quickly comes into it's own if the game drags on. I still like the idea of going in hot and trying to win by turn 5 or 6, but my side-board has changed over time so that I have more come-backs if my opponent focusses on control.
I have moved away from playing this deck regularly and am trying to develop a U/B mill deck and a G/W clue deck that focusses on getting out Sandwurm Convergence and Overwhelming Splendor as early as possible....

Your deck looks more spicy now than when I saw it the first time. The synergy Mirage Mirror looks to have with your deck overall is quite interesting, mainly with Pride Sovereign (and Procession as you've mentioned.) Still, isn't it a little risky to not run any form for removal mainboard?

Well, I'll say that maybe it's not meant to win against everything, but it should be able to be good in different matchups. If you need help with removal, I would take a look at Cast Out. One or two of those wouldn't hurt, and it would help fill in that 4-drop slot nicely. Plus, you can just cycle it and get another card if you want. If I were to replace some cards, it would probably be Graceful Cat, because it just doesn't quite seem that good on its own even with synergies (but that's just my opinion).
Also to help against graveyard decks, try Watchers of the Dead as a possible sideboard. I would also just take out the rare indestructible lands and put in basics in their place. I plan to playtest this on here very quick and give you an update.

Graceful Cat is a pretty shit card (aside from the fact that it's a cat of course!). I'd suggest more Prowling Serpopard and Longtusk Cub. I use Metallic Mimic in my Standard cat deck too, with mixed results. If you wanna check it out: Here Kitty Kitty Kitty......
Also, it doesn't seem like the Felidar Sovereign angle is too practical here. Probably worth replacing. Not enough life gain, and you will be taking damage too. I realize that it's a big creature, but with multiple Regal Caracal, you will get big enough creatures. Maybe chop it to 1 at most, especially with no mana ramp.
Just some thoughts =)

For commander, you don't want to run low power level cards (take out Graceful Cat, Oreskos Sun Guide, Sacred Cat, Skyhunter Prowler, Captain's Claws, Journeyer's Kite, and Ajani's Mantra at least). These cards may be okay early game in modern, but are completely useless in commander. Also, cards that do not help you toward your goal of cats/equipment, should be taken out (Ajani's Chosen, Ajani's Pridemate, Felidar Sovereign).
Okay, now that we've just gotten rid of half your deck, here are some replacements. Coat of Arms, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Leonin Squire, Sigarda's Aid, Path to Exile, Ajani, Caller of the Pride and White Sun's Zenith. In commander, mana is kind of important, so cards like Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion should not be left out. Also, you might want to change your commander to Kemba, Kha Regent. He has much more synergy with the cat/equipment archetype. Hope this helps!

Based on the flavour text of a couple of the cards revealed on Monday, I have a couple of things to point out. The cat god is likely named Oketra as she is referred to on Graceful Cat. I also suspect that the unmoving sun has a direct link to Bolas (whether it is him or connected in some other manner). The flavour text of Mighty Leap says, "I feel the presence of the God-Pharaoh in the second sun," and I believe that it makes sense that Bolas would be the God-Pharaoh. I have also observed that the gods each have a primary colour as evidenced in which of the masterpiece cards they are depicted in. I still think they'll be tri-coloured, but they'll have a primary one.
Cat God - White
Crane God - Blue
Crocodile God - Black
Jackal God - Red
Cobra God - Green
The Gatewatch was actually saved by two gods: the jackal god, and the cat god. Gideon only saw one of them but he noted that there seemed to be an unseen archer. Oketra is depicted holding a bow.
Some people may find today's story lacking in substantial development, but I disagree. We have been given a lot of first insight into what kind of world Amonkhet is. We have also been given about as much foreshadowing as a writer can give without outright telling that the Gatewatch are going to suffer some sort of consequence for their haste in coming to Amonkhet.
Something else come to mind when I put a few clues together. Nissa said the leylines all felt wrong; the Masterpieces depict enemy-colour gods working together (W/B, B/G); the two gods who worked together to save the Gatewatch were the white and red gods. I wonder if there is going to be a strong emphasis on enemy colour pairs. Another way-outside-the-box idea that occurred to me was what if the problem with the leylines and mana and cooperation of enemy colours is due to Amonkhet obeying an inverted colour pie? I don't actually think that's likely to be the case but the thought was intriguing enough to write down anyway.
What I didn't like about the story was that it started in past tense and then shifted to present tense for one section before switching back again.
