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.

Things that should work well in the deck: Nahiri, the Lithomancer, Aura Shards, Fireshrieker, Worldslayer, Shield of Kaldra, Helm of Kaldra, Sword of Kaldra, Conqueror's Flail, Basilisk Collar, Godsend, Whispersilk Cloak, Quietus Spike, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Sword of Vengeance, Rishkar's Expertise, Open the Vaults, Krosan Grip, Auriok Steelshaper, Armory Automaton, Puresteel Paladin, Stonehewer Giant

Consider removing: Alms Collector, Stalking Leonin, Hungry Lynx, Jazal Goldmane, Leonin Arbiter, Fleecemane Lion, Phantom Nishoba, Temur Sabertooth, White Sun's Zenith, Curse of Bounty, Curse of Vitality

I think some of my suggestions for adding may already be in there but that just tells you they are doubly worth it :P There may be better options then some of what I listed so you might want to take a look here too:

What about Hungry Lynx, Feral Prowler, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Ajani's Pridemate or Aetherstream Leopard? (Not all of them are standart-legal and I'd take the last one just because it fits to Longtusk Cub.) Why is there Crook of Condemnation in your deck?

I love my cats deck! I know you have already seen my deck, WonderCats, but if I may make a few suggestions for yours? First off, I think the best thing you have changed is your mana-base: it looks pretty decent. Do you really own a Savannah? If so, good on you lol. Since you are only in 2 colors and have no Landfall, I would drop Terramorphic Expanse & Evolving Wilds, since in this deck Scattered Groves & Stirring Wildwood are "strictly better" (think about it.. even Blossoming Sands, Graypelt Refuge, Arctic Flats, Elfhame Palace, Selesnya Guildgate, & Grasslands are strictly better in this 2-color deck with no landfall/revolt triggers..). I really like Brushland, Sungrass Prairie, & Selesnya Sanctuary, too. I would also recommend Temple of the False God & Thran Dynamo since you have a lot of artifacts with colorless mana costs, though Gilded Lotus is good, too. Selesnya Signet & Sungrass Prairie can help filter the colorless to colored. Krosan Verge is terrible- at least go with Grasslands if you want that search for a non-basic, since it is free and the non-basic can come into play untapped (another "strictly better" situation). I would add Krosan Verge (which is essentially the same as Cultivate, & you already know how good that card is!), & another one of my favorite ramp spells: Skyshroud Claim! Notice how Skyshroud lets you bring in TWO non-basic lands.. UNTAPPED.. frikkin unreal ramp card. If you have even 3 colorless mana available, then Selesnya Signet basically costs one mana to give you ramp as well as make the other 2 mana colored. Pretty awesome early game- better than Rampant Growth, imo, though I don't run Rampant Growth myself. My last suggestion for mana-base is Strip Mine, mostly to get rid Maze of Ith, since it can be very annoying when running a Voltron strategy.

Okay- onto Instants/Sorceries.. why Condemn? With the "tuck" rules for Commanders now letting them go back to the Command Zone, why not simply run Swords to Plowshares? It is another "strictly better" case, imo. I feel Path to Exile is inferior to Swords to Plowshares in this format, but I do think even Path is still better than Condemn. Wing Shards & Crushing Vines are terrible, & Relic Crush isn't much better- Sundering Growth, Naturalize, & Nature's Claim are all good options.. & even better than those are Aura Shards & Krosan Grip. Rout & Divine Reckoning are ok, but I personally prefer Wrath of God, Catastrophe, & my pet favorite, Austere Command. The problem with Hunter's Prowess is that it costs 5-mana & is at sorcery speed.. I've found Hunter's Insight to be more useful in my own Voltron deck.

Enchantments: the Curses are kinda fun, but not effective enough to warrant a slot in an edh deck, imo. Something like Aura Shards or Sylvan Library or Greater Good or Asceticism or Duelist's Heritage has a much bigger impact on the game- & my biggest suggestion would be to add Sigarda's Aid! Amazingly broken card..

Equipment: Grappling Hook is good, but expensive- I exchanged it for Fireshrieker in my own deck & find it works better for me. Duelist's Heritage does much the same thing and is even better, imo. I LOVE Hammer of Nazahn, & if you have realized how amazing that free equip cost can be, then consider Sigarda's Aid! Add double-strike to either of those cards and then Bloodforged Battle-Axe becomes INSANE.. I have literally had 40+ Bloodforged Battle-Axes before, with 20-something equipped for free. Puresteel Paladin is obviously great, too. I think your Sword of War and Peace does as more harm than good- I personally cut both Sword of Feast and Famine & Sword of Light and Shadow from my own Arahbo deck due to the protection being a problem (not only because of the Eminence, but because of all the other cards in the 99 that target..). Sword of Fire and Ice avoids that problem in this deck, though, and is arguably the best of all the Swords. Umezawa's Jitte is INSANE. If it doesn't seem overpowered to you, then you have never played with or against it. Get something to have double-strike and it gets really crazy. Because of the shroud on Whispersilk Cloak, I personally prefer Prowler's Helm in my Arahbo build. I actually think it might benefit your deck more to cut some of the weaker equipment and add the ability to tutor for the better ones, ie- Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory, etc.

Creatures- Dude, you cut Qasali Pridemage?!! He is one of the best Cats! He is basically a 3-mana destroy target artifact/enchantment that in this deck can swing for 6 damage on turn 3! Hungry Lynx & Arctic Nishoba are just plain bad, imo, & a lot of the other cats you have sit far too high on the mana-curve.. I would halve your 6-7 drops, tbh. Alms Collector under-performed for me, since drawing consecutive/additional cards isn't the same as drawing "two or more." Pride Sovereign is another under-performer that I cut, since we aren't going wide, but tall. A few MUST-have's that are missing are: Lost Leonin, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Leonin Abunas, Mirri, Cat Warrior, & Skyhunter Skirmisher. I personally also really like Skyhunter Prowler, Chameleon Colossus (technically a cat!), Prowling Serpopard, Leonin Shikari. A few non-cats I really really like are Sun Titan, Stonehewer Giant, & Puresteel Paladin.

Anyways, hopefully I've given you some ideas.. Good Luck! I love my cats!

Hi KailDaemon, Fellow Arahbo, Roar of the World player, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats

I like the myriad flavor and the pump up / ETB flavor of your deck!

Mirror Entity could be an interesting one for you, he is a shapeshifter/cat, and can make all the attackers X/X.

Sword of Light and Shadow and Sword of Feast and Famine won't work with the Eminence triggers as well due to the Protection, but they are pretty utility on their own, and since you have multiple attackers, probably doesn't affect you.

Stand to be corrected, but with Myriad the enter tapped and attacking, so it won't trigger properly with Beastmaster Ascension. Might be too slow, but once it triggers it's good.

Not a fan of Hungry Lynx, if they remove him, then they have a bunch of deathtouch blockers to kill your big cats or pumpers.

A doublestrike enabler for Lost Leonin is really handy, I like Duelist's Heritage or Ajani, Caller of the Pride. Some others like Silverblade Paladin or Berserk.

You have some pretty high CMC's and Lifecrafter's Bestiary and Blind Obedience and such take mana, but don't see much tutor or land enablers. Maybe a Steelshaper's Gift or some type of tutor cat Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith or Taj-Nar Swordsmith to get the Sword of the Animist.

It's strange our decks are similar in spell counts but quite different in design and strategy. Cool build. +1

maxon sadly, Hungry Lynx is not modern-legal, as it is printed in Commander 2017, meaning it can only be use in Commander, Legacy and/or Vintage.

Hi,

I think you are well on your way to make a nice tribe deck. Cards that I would probably add are:
