Graceful Cat Discussion

Your sideboard should be dependent on what your local meta consists of, however I can make some recommendations.
Solemnity is good for the energy/ +1+1 counters strategies.
Abrade can get rid of problematic artifacts but you should probably be running those mainboard since they're pretty versatile. Id say put in 3 of them over your Impeccable Timing and Electrify. By Force is a more budget option to deal with problematic artifacts if that's a concern. Also Lightning Strike is in standard and it might have a home in this deck.
The only other thing I could recommend is to focus more on cards you really want to play. You have alot of 1/2 ofs and that lowers the consistency of your deck. Stuff like Graceful Cat and Hyena Pack are ok, but the deck slots could be used for more Glory-Bound Initiates and Gust Walkers. That's just an example but I'm sure you get the idea. You can easily replace some cards to increase the raw power of your deck.
Overall the deck looks sweet and I wish you the best of luck tuning it!

Id recommend redesigning your deck from the ground up as youre running too many 1 ofs and some pretty bad creatures. Graceful Cat just seems so bad for instance.

Cards I would try to remove from deck because you either lack cards to support them or are just on the weak side:
Embraal Bruiser: lack of artifacts
Graceful Cat: not very strong for its mana cost
Mummy Paramount: lack of zombies to trigger effect
Ruthless Sniper: lack of cycling cards to trigger
Liliana's Defeat: strong vs black, but best not to run cards like this in a mainboard because you never know if your match up will make use of this card from the start.
Getting more of Gifted Aetherborn would help a lot likely.
If possible you may want to also use Walk the Plank unless your friends are playing merfolks.
Hope these suggestions are helpful. Tried to make suggestions that would not brake the bank. Its a nice deck you have there for making it out of a builders kit.

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!
