Great start!

Some budget suggestions: Goldnight Commander , Healer of the Pride , Mentor of the Meek , Mirror Entity , Throne of the God-Pharaoh , Congregate , and Entrapment Maneuver .

I know those are all white cards so you definitely won't want to use them all, but some may fir in pretty well. Mirror Entity and Goldnight Commander can help you go tall if going wide isn't a winning option.

I like this a lot.

Since nearly all of your creatures are cats, you could add some cards that support that tribe, or just white creatures.

Metallic Mimic, Vanquisher's Banner, Crusade, etc.

I would cut your Gold Myrs and Healer of the Prides for more Plains, because 18 probably wont be enough to reliably draw 3-5 a game.

**Ninja edit: Regal Caracal and Radiant Destiny would be super good too.

Craterhoof Behemoth or the less good budget option Decimator of the Provinces could be good includes. If you like gaining life, cards like: Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, or Healer of the Pride are great in token strategies. Moonsilver Spear, Luminarch Ascension, and Angelic Accord make additional angels.

Nice list! If you find that you hurt for card draw, Bygone Bishop could help since you have a pretty high density of <3 cmc creatures. Mind's Eye can give incredible value if the table leaves it alone for a turn cycle or three, but will probably draw some removal.

Conqueror's Galleon isn't exactly on-theme with soldiers, but in my Darien list, it performed way better than I expected. The crew cost is easily handled by dumping tokens into it, and the flipside (Conqueror's Foothold  Flip) gives a good mana sink for card filtering, pure draw, or recursion (for any card!). Coat of Arms is absolutely massive in any tribal deck that wants to beat face, and can be a very quick game-ender even with a relatively humble amount of soldiers.

I've found that having 2-3 cards with Soul Warden effects really help keep your life up, but I also haven't tried running Healer of the Pride or Lich's Tomb like you have in your list. So that combination may keep you alive pretty well on their own.

Cloudblazer is the best, but you are already running it. I'd instead suggest Healer of the Pride or Soul Warden type effects so when you flicker anything else it gains life.

@ThoAlmighty i understand the spell base idea of the deck. But you also got to factor in the colours and the cards in the deck. You DEFINITELY don't want to be relying on dropping your commander to start going off. Deck would work with a bunch of cheap burn and topping off with a Blasphemous Act or Hour of Devestation. And if its supposed to be lifegain, then creatures along the lines of Healer of the Pride should be inserted and Young Pyromancer and Assemble the Legion to help gain a creature presence and gain life off Healer of the Pride. Guttersnipe is one of my personal favourites for abusing spells. Not the best but his damage counts. Theres lots of potential. Just the right strategies and combos have to be inserted

Hey flamingweasels,

Are any of the degenerate combos cat tribal specific. I'm trying to find some cat-centric combos for my Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH Deck but haven't found anything good yet.

All I've been able to come-up with so far, but are really janky are:

Temur Sabertooth + Karametra's Acolyte + Swiftfoot Boots + 4 Devotion | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or + 1 Devotion Infinite Mana. No clue what I would do with this mana even if I made it.

Cryptolith Rite + Leonin Battlemage + Oketra's Monument + Whitemane Lion | Infinite 1/1 Warrior Tokens. Who doesn't love 4-card combos that involve 2 cats to make 1/1 warriors that don't even have haste. On the plus side Oketra's Monument looks cat-ish.

Aluren + Fleetfoot Panther or Whitemane Lion | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. Aluren terrifies me, none of the cats are ultimately good on their own either.

Changeling Hero + Changeling Titan | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. They may not look like cats but they are... I guess.

Leonin Relic-Warder + Oblivion Ring or Journey to Nowhere + Sun Titan or Karmic Guide or Reveillark + Greater Good | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. Soon as you say Sun Titan or Karmic Guide or Reveillark which is Saffi Eriksdotter so why would I waste time with Cats.

I've been reading cat after cat card, and nothing has come to me yet like the Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder | Infinite Life + Infinite +1/+1 Counters type combo.

I'm not sure Chord of Calling + Felidar Sovereign + 40 life is even a combo. More just a mana sponge at life < 40.

If you have anything please let me know!

A cat wearing a Helm of Obedience would be obnoxious enough for me, but not sure any cats enable it. Rest in Peace no-cat combo.

Whats your Tooth and Nail combo, any cats?

Any help very much appreciated.

I like it so far, I would suggest you take it down to the usual 60 cards, its fine to have more than that but you generally want to aim for 60-65 cards.

Suggestions:Elvish Mystic - either take it out and replace it with Avacyn's Pilgrim or add more of them, there's not much point in running just one of them and you don't need more than two green manna to cast any spells

Soul's Majesty - None of your cards have a massive amount of power so I don't really see why its needed, I'd suggest you just remove it.

Healer of the Pride - Its a good card, but there are some that will work better for you: Soul Warden or Suture Priest don't gain you as much life, but they come out earlier, trigger more often, and cost less (manna wise). There are some others that are similar as well but they can be more expensive ($ wise)

Cloud Shift - other than for some protection, this again seems to me un-necessary to what your trying to do.

Toss in some more angels and maybe remove a planes walker, I love Ajani to death but three is a bit extreme to me
