Artifact

(X), Tap: Target opponent puts cards from the top of his or her library into his or her graveyard until a creature card or X cards are put into that graveyard this way, whichever comes first.

Given how you have several ways into infinite mana, maybe some other ways to dump that mana into alternate wincons? Helix Pinnacle , Helm of Obedience , Polukranos, World Eater , Waker of the Wilds , and Whetwheel come to mind.

Hi TypicalTimmy thanks lol.

Foxfire_Celest,

Crop Rotation is on my Acquireboard, I was waiting till I could get a Gaea's Cradle in there as well, but Inkmoth Nexus definitely enough value, just like having the other tutor outlet if draw the Inkmoth Nexus or Gaea's Cradle to hand.

I picked up a The Great Henge in a draft I did, been thinking how to properly utilize it in this deck. Still under consideration, many utility, just trying to figure it out.

That being said, I gave up trying to tutor artifacts, I need an artifact to combo properly with cats. Now, I've decided, instead of tutoring for an artifact, drawing an entire library to find the artifact is easier. The Great Henge can play an important role, with something like Fleetfoot Panther like TzickyT suggested, or a Whitemane Lion + and Aluren get there with almost infinite +1, and almost infinite draw (bound by cards left in deck). Theres gotta be a way to T2/T3 combo with this. Working on it, stay tuned.

Have a commander tournament tomorrow, so going to spend the morning strategizing on this cats deck with some other cEDH players.

Rest in Peace ok because I don't really recur the graveyard. Also has a synergy with Helm of Obedience , but again, no way to tutor artifacts in Selesnya ().

I don't like Winds of Abandon because it's sorcery. CMC2 for exile is ok, but also ramps the player, much like how Path to Exile can be dangerous. What I like about Path to Exile is you can exile your own creature to ramp yourself, so it's a CMC1 ramp as well as a control/removal. Winds of Abandon lose that modularity. CMC6 overload at sorcery speed is just not sexy, Cyclonic Rift is instant, and the overload devastates the board (all permanents) where Winds of Abandon is just creatures which is likely meaningless. Noone does a creature combo and then waits a whole turn for a sorcery response. If it was instant, could be considered.

If anyone has thoughts on a T2/T3 way to draw library, please recommend!

Should have updates for cats soon, my revision of my Kaalia of the Vast deck is done, just one more card to change then that deck goes back into cEDH play testing.

Any thoughts on what Helm of Obedience accomplishes here?

Helm of Obedience should be in here. It's a wincon combo with Rest in Peace and Lavinia

Hey, I've actually taken out the Lab Maniac now and put in other things! Windfall + Notion Thief , and I already had a Rest in Peace in there so adding a Helm of Obedience made pretty good sense. Empyrial Armor also stacks hard with Necropotence .
