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.

Hungry Lynx Discussion

Spirits on Thundercats...HOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

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:

Spirits on Super Cats!

Hi pooki,

Cool cats +1. Fellow Arahbo, Roar of the World player, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats

Firstly, I notice your SLUG is super-cats-2, does that mean there is a super-cats-1! If not you can reset your slug in the edit deck option.

I've had a lot of success with Alms Collector, primarily to shutdown Grixis () or Izzet () or mono- Show and Tell + Omniscience + Enter the Infinite combos. It's great against lots of other things like Blue Sun's Zenith and almost every draw in . Highly recommend him.

Adorned Pouncer is a 100% must include, his built-in double strike, makes him a CMC2 8 Damage with Eminence! Throw on a Grafted Exoskeleton and you Eliminate a player.

Tempt with Discovery seems dangerous. CMC4 for 1 land isn't a good conversion ratio. Cultivate or Kodama's Reach are CMC3 for 2. Let's say an opponent needs to ramp as well, a bad case would be a Maze of Ith making your Eminence useless, or they get closer to their combo. If it ramps you 3 additional lands, is the only positive outcome. A little too dangerous for my taste, and my guess, will probably only net you 1 land for way too much. Rhonas the Indomitable would like that extra mana, and if you have ANY cat + eminence, you get a 5/5 Indestructible, Deathtouch attacker who can + and trample a cat for CMC3.

With all your equipment, begging for a Lost Leonin to give you a finishing attack with equipment or you +1's.

Stonehewer Giant seems made for this deck with all those equipments.

Don't really like Hungry Lynx, I thought I would, but loaded opponents up with 1/1 blockers isn't that great. They aren't going to attack the rats into protection cats just to + your creatures, and they can't block cats with them, and once Hungry Lynx is gone, now what do you do, all your non-first strike cats are in trouble!

With only 25 creatures, and not a token-centric build I found Metallic Mimic to slow, and not that powerful. The extra +1 here and there rarely made an impact, even with guys like Pride Sovereign, Regal Caracal though is awesome with.

I would run Enlightened Tutor over Krosan Grip and pull Aura Shards if needed, or even better Sylvan Library.

Path to Exile also good.

You need to have ways to force your opponents to attack. For example, Bident of Thassa. You activate, they can either pay through your Ghostly Prison effects and attack you or attack an opponent for free, but they must attack. Same idea with Avatar of Slaughter, Basandra, Battle Seraph, Curse of the Nightly Hunt, Fumiko the Lowblood, etc

Benevolent Offering, Hungry Lynx, Kamahl's Summons, Phelddagrif, Questing Phelddagrif, etc

Posting this Cats that don't suck list to research later, as MegaMatt13 commented, Pride Sovereign is a little weak, plus I find that 24 cats is a little short, although I've won games without playing a cat Stonehewer Giant + Puresteel Paladin + Grafted Exoskeleton.

I excluded many aggro cats because I feel that's not the right way to win in a multi-player format.

I'm sure I've missed some cats. I also have added some cats that do suck, but evaluating combos with them.

Spirits First of all, I can't help but be a little flattered that someone likes one of my decklist to the point where they take influence from it, so thank you very much indeed. You're comment certainly looks like it could help me out!

In an effort to keep the curve for cats relatively low, I haven't really tested Felidar Sovereign, although I have considered him. I think he defiantly makes sense, as giving lifelink on a massive creature should allow you to keep yourself over 40, as I've been as high as 82 life with this before. If you can think of what it could possibly replace then give me a shout!

I haven't actually been able to play Godsend much if I'm honest, but I think the exile effect is quite useful for when you don't have access to trample. That said, maybe another trample-granting card would be a better choice on reflection.

I personally have had great success with Hungry Lynx. I totally understand what your saying though, and on top of that I'd argue that putting counters "on each cat you control" is not really what an Arahbo deck wants to do. However, possibly the expendable nature of tokens, I find they die pretty often.

I'll have to reply to the rest later, I'm currently needing my bed ahaha. Thanks again!
