Initiate's Companion Discussion

I think you want to start with Felidar Sovereign, lets be honest you are never going to get to 40 life even with awe strike, and a 4/6 lifelink vigilance is okay at best. than maybe cut some Initiate's Companion , not all of them though they are good for early pressure just you don't want to draw them late game.

Why not add Ahn-Crop Crasher and maybe Gideon of the Trials to untap your creatures.

I would take out Initiate's Companion since it is easy to stop him.

I recommend the following changes:

Cut 2 Colossapede, 2 Bitterbow Sharpshooters, 2 Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs, 4 Aven of Enduring Hope, 2 Winged Shepherd, 1 Sandwurm Convergence, 1 Greater Sandwurm, 1 Mirage Mirror, 2 Life goes on.

Add 3 Rhonas's Stalwart, 1 Resilient Khenra, 1 Gideon's Defeat, 1 Dauntless Aven, 1 Tah-Crop Elite, 1 Vizier of the True, 1 Rhet-Crop Spearmaster, 1 Trial of Solidarity, 1 Sunscourge Champion, 2 Bitterblade Warrior, 1 Unwavering Initiate, 1 Initiate's Companion , 1 Naga Vitalist, 1 Act of Heroism.

The biggest problem of your current version is the mana curve, you have way too many mana intensive cards and very little ramp, so i would cut the 5+ CMC cards for the aggressive 2 and 3 drops from your card pool and play a more aggro version of the deck.

You might want an Uncage the Menagerie for 5 mana you can tutor for Pouncing Cheetah, Pride Sovereign and Prowling Serpopard.

Watchers of the Dead would also make a great side board card.

Dusk / Dawn (Dawn) would be great to return your low cost cats to your hand.Great for Feral Prowler, Scrounging Bandar and Metallic Mimic as it draws hate. Initiate's Companion, Longtusk Cub Adorned Pouncer, Sacred Cat, Wily Bandar and Watchers of the Dead there may be others.

Unconventional Tactics 3 mana to give say Adorned Pouncer +3/+3 and flaying for a turn is pretty sweet and if you increase Adorned Pouncer and Sacred Cat to 4 each to synergies with Anointed Procession you have 8 chances to get it back.

Key to the City Excellent way to get your power houses through and gives you a way to get Adorned Pouncer or Dusk / Dawn into the graveyard for casting.

You say that you want to create a kitten whirlwind (bunch of Kitties), then leave out the strongest cards available to do this (combinations of Anointed Procession and Second Harvest) and instead add in planeswalkers that don't fit into the theme.

I like Prowling Serpopard and Metallic Mimic main-board in a deck like this (prevents negation of a creature summon and gives all kittens +1/+1's). Initiate's Companion is a bit delicate and vulnerable to -1/-1 counters.....

My current version of this deck is Kittens Play. It might give you a few ideas.

Entomo - You're totally right, forgive me - I just misread it and thought it only was a land that Initiate's Companion could untap. But yes, using it on a Pride Sovereign is certainly an interesting idea....

It might be feasible to move Cast Out to the sideboard (it has more targets than "Fight" or Nature's Way) to make room for Prepare / Fight. The thing I like about Nature's Way though is your own creature doesn't take any damage from it. I will have to see if it's possible (and worthwhile) to juggle some of the numbers to fit it in.
