Initiate's Companion Discussion

You could put an Adorned Pouncer or an Ajani's Pridemate insted of an Initiate's Companion.With the equipment sub-theme you could use a Leonin Abunas just for shit and giggles. Also, kind of situational, but Shamanic Revelation is usually better than Harmonize (Or use both).
Swords to Plowshares is never a bad option.
All of those cards are not that expensive and are really good, I guess.

I actually like curving out a bit lower, it can be really, really easy to power out a Ghalta on turn 4. More mana dorks are a must.
Consider Initiate's Companion - not glamorous, but it is a LOT of ramp towards your commander.Strider Harness is good for giving Ghalta haste so you can beat down the turn you cast it.Consulate Dreadnought is something I've been having a bit of fun with too.

Making a few updates to make the deck more resilient.
2 Forest, Longtusk Cub, Trained Caracal, Sword of Feast and Famine pro green is bad with arahbo. Garruk Wildspeaker great card but no real synergy with this deck. Initiate's Companion. Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip it will be too difficult to flip, and wont be able to do so reliably.

Rwhr2d2, I run Initiate's Companion in the SB because I don't really feel like it adds much value to the deck besides untapping Pride Sovereign when he's exerted. Though, the reason he's even mentioned is to counter my LGS meta of Second Approach, another body / spell to counter. They can't deal with super aggro until turn 4 or 5. That is, if they draw into a Fumigate / Settle the Wreckage

Where companion does let you untap things, that is if an opponent isn't just trading his/her 1/1 with it. Not only that, but even if you get something bigger, companion WILL die. Like, it is going to do literally no damage, and will only take out a decent-size creature under few circumstances.
Prowler, on the other hand, is a great blocker in a very aggressive deck where that is a necessary slot to fill. Drawing another card is always nice, as well. Anything with 1 toughness is either not going to attack, or probably has enough power to kill the prowler. Under those circumstances, just let the prowler die to kill a bigger fish and draw you a card.

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.
Adorned Pouncer, Ajani's Pridemate, Ajani's Sunstriker, Felidar Cub, Fleecemane Lion, Hungry Lynx, Initiate's Companion, Leonin Arbiter, Leonin Relic-Warder, Leonin Shikari, Lost Leonin, Metallic Mimic, Qasali Pridemage, Scrounging Bandar, Sunspear Shikari, Whitemane Lion
