Hungry Lynx

Creature — Cat

Cats you control have protection from Rats. (They can't be blocked, targeted, or dealt damage by Rats.)

At the beginning of your end step, target opponent creates a 1/1 black Rat creature token with deathtouch.

Whenever a Rat dies, put a +1/+1 counter on each Cat you control.

TypicalTimmy: Thank you for this amazing design. I tried to come up with my own approach for the challenge, but yours is just so much cooler. I love the flavour here. I'd love to play this as a cat/rat deck. Thanks to white, the deck would even have access to populate spells. It's a shame Anix couldn't include Hungry Lynx though.

Really I love that kind of strategies in EDH, and I liked the deck inmediatly when i saw it! +1!

  • I think that Hungry Lynx (appart of being adorable) is a very efficient card to give tokens to the opponents: It's very cheap and also pumps with +1/+1 counters himself and Marisi, that can be useful to avoid some removal like Mizzium Mortars , or simply to destroy our opponents face.

  • Seeing that you have Concordant Crossroads and Mass Hysteria in the maybeboard, I think that another card to considerate is Urabrask the Hidden , because it gives haste to your things, and also actues like Imposing Sovereign , the only problem that you can have with it is the cmc of 5.

  • Hero of Oxid Ridge can be an useful evasion card, because a great part of the tokens that you give to your opponents have power 1.

  • Also i think that good swarming cards can be Artifact Mutation and Aura Mutation , because them are good artifact/enchantment removal, and can give to you some tokens!

I hope that this helps the stutterer Marisi!

Hungry Lynx isn't modern legal; commander, masters etc don't automatically enter modern or standard when they release unless they are in a 'proper set' e.g. Ixalan or Guilds of Ravnica.

Hungry Lynx is one of the best cats, but I don't think that ARotW is a great commander. Many of the cats are underpowered, and GW isn't the best EDH color combination.

Cascading Cataracts seems unnecessary in a two color deck, unless it's included because CATaracts in which case, carry on. Charge and Pride of Conquerors both seem better than Inspired Charge.

Revitalize is...not a good card, especially for EDH. It just doesn't have a big enough impact to merit a card slot. Likewise for Root Snare - fog effects aren't worthwhile unless you take advantage of them in some way which this deck does not.

Beneath the Sands could be replaced with Cultivate -two lands for the same cmc. I'd look into more ramp as well, you probably want to aim for around 10 sources and I think I count 6-7 right now.

You ABSOLUTELY need some more removal. A Day of Judgment or Rout would be great. Even a Martial Coup to rebuild your tokens. Disenchant or Naturalize for enchantments and artifacts, Beast Within for other pesky things.

If you're playing Oath of Ajani, consider adding some Ajani planeswalkers! Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants adds counters to multiple creatures and Ajani, Caller of the Pride could ult into lots of cats.

You don't currently have much in the way of +1/+1 counter synergies as far as I could see so you might want to find some more sources of the counters. Hungry Lynx is a good option.

Cards I'd remove:

  • Beneath the Sands
  • Revitalize
  • Root Snare
  • Inspired Charge
  • Luxa River Shrine
  • Filigree Familiar
  • Longtusk Cub - no way to make more energy
  • Oreskos Swiftclaw - there's better cats
  • Riparian Tiger - energy dependent

Cards I'd Add:

  • Charge
  • Pride of Conquerors
  • Cultivate
  • Rishkar's Expertise - great card draw
  • Huatli, Radiant Champion - can easily be emblemed for card draw
  • Day of Judgment
  • Rout
  • Naturalize
  • Disenchant
  • Ajani, Caller of the Pride
  • Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants
  • Hungry Lynx
