Target player gains 7 life.
Heroes' Reunion Discussion
2 months ago
Stream of Life originates from Alpha. Back then, "White is undisputedly the best color in this game at gaining life" simply wasn't true. In fact it was quite a while before white caught up to green's level of lifegain.
Fruition , Rejuvenate , Wellwisher , Nourish , and so on. It wasn't until Soul Warden that white got anything even resembling efficient lifegain imo. Maybe Spirit Link , but that's still a single outlier among plenty of efficient green lifegain cards.
Lifegain is one of those things that shifted on the color pie as the game matured. It started as a primarily green thing that white did on occasion. If anything, I'd argue that White has become too efficient at it, to the point that Green rarely even bothers with it anymore, effectively robbing Green of what was once a defining characteristic.
Finally, I feel like pointing out that in general, the best lifegain cards tend to be ones that are both White and Green. Vitalizing Cascade , Heroes' Reunion , Dawnglow Infusion , Oracle of Nectars , Ajani, Mentor of Heroes , Pledge of Unity , etc.

I know what you're saying, but having to be able to hardcast all of the instants would really make it very difficult to get a mana base going and that also really narrows the range of instant cards that I can use. It would be nice to be able to cast them all without relying on the scepter, but it's a lot of extra work that the scepter already takes care of, IMHO. In this deck, the key feature of the scepter is not having to pay the specifically colored mana cost of the imprinted instant (as well as the repeatability of casting). Ideally, I want to imprint three or four instants that would work together to destroy creatures or permanents, counter spells, cause damage and gain life. Boros Charm is especially useful considering that I can choose to give permanents indestructible. Supporting spells like Opt and Anticipate would be nice because they are straight blue and help me draw into either a scepter or an artifact fetch card. There are four scepters and six cards to fetch the scepter, so the quicker I can draw into any of those 10 cards, the better. Heroes' Reunion is in there just as a way to keep me in the game when players start singling me out with damage, while it doesn't provide an offensive advantage, the ability to keep me in the game and the fact that it still removes counters from Thing in the Ice Flipseems worth it. Maybe I'm way out in left field on this one, but I believe that focusing on ways to draw into the scepter or the fetch should be the focus. I dropped Deflecting Palm in favor of Anticipate and moved the Chalice of Life Flip to the side board in favor of Voltaic Key . What do you think of Mirage Mirror ?

This is a tricky one, I would seriously consider splashing a third color for access to cards that fetch artifacts like Fabricate but the mana fixing becomes a serious issue. I would happily drop AEther Membrane to do this but a three color deck just sounds inherently unreliable in terms of mana.
I mainly wanted to try to build around Isochron Scepter and my thoughts other than straight burn would be Doom Blade , Geth's Verdict , Mana Leak , Angelsong , Assassin's Trophy , Bile Blight , Commencement of Festivities , Dampen Thought , Dash Hopes , Deflecting Palm , Essence Scatter , Feed the Clan , Growth Spiral , Heroes' Reunion , Increasing Vengeance , Nourish , Raise the Alarm , Redirect , Solidarity of Heroes , Turn to Frog , Twincast , Veil of Secrecy , Whitesun's Passage .
I don't know, it just seems like the scepter could be a really awesome addition to a lot of decks but you would want the scepter plus a fetch for it as well.

Ive seen decks similar to this. In fact I have one(Its Humans not Cats). You are missing a couple staple cats and some non-creature spells that could really help.
Fleecemane Lion - This is a winocn plain and simple
Collected Company - Can put most of yours creatures onto the battlefield at any given time and can easily swing a game in your favor.
Harmonize - Gives you much needed card draw
Now i should probably talk about some cards that probably shouldn't be in this deck. I understand if you own all these cards but if you do not, i don't think that there is any reason for them to be in here. If you have counter argument Id love to hear it.
Heroes' Reunion - I'm sorry if you are going for a lifelink, but it just isn't worth to have a straight lifegain spell as apposed to say Collected Company or Blossoming Defense or something that gives you more value than simply 7 life.
Disenchant - This is a card for your sideboard, something that you sub in when you need it
Survival Cache - im on the fence. I feel like there could be better options, but it seems to fit relatively well.
Soul Net - Isn't legal in Modern and doesn't really work regardless
In case you want to check out my humans deck here it is: Thalia's Horde of Humans but this is your deck and as such, you get the final say in any change.

I think my cats will be the ones giving me life needed for Ajani's Pridemate, as they have lifelink, but I could be wrong. I'll probably do as you say and get rid of one Heroes' Reunion and a few Gift of Strength and even a few of Blossoming Defense and play instead with Birds of Paradise and Lotus Cobra, rather than add more lands. I already have 7x Forest 8x Plains 4x Sunpetal Grove. Don't you think that's enough lands? 19 in total. With Birds of Paradise and Lotus Cobra, if I draw them, they would allow me to gain lands much faster. I would useAjani's Welcome but I don't know how many cat cards i'll be casting. Do you think I'll have more than 7 creatures on the battlefield on the fourth turn? The whole reason I'm thinking of using birds of paradise and lotus cobra is so that early in the game I'll be able to play Anointed Procession and eternalize Adorned Pouncer, play Leonin Warleader, as well as Regal Caracal. If I can't get enough cats early in the game, I'll be twiddling my thumbs until I get enough mana, as Regal Caracal and Leonin Warleader are two main cat givers, and Pride Sovereign would be pointless until the 4th turn if I don't have these mana rampers. If I draw Sacred Cat at any time in the game, the most I can have on the battlefield is 4 until I can mummify them, which is the whole point of Anointed Procession. Anointed Procession is the main card that this whole deck depends upon.

I love cat decks!
I'd be tempted to put more land in, and lose a couple of the instants.
Since you've got a number of creatures and enchantment that pump out cat tokens, consider adding Majestic Myriarch which will have power and toughness equal to twice the number of creatures you control.
