Initiate's Companion Discussion

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
Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Fleetfoot Panther, Kemba, Kha Regent, Mirri, Cat Warrior, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist, Mirror Entity, Pride Sovereign, Prowling Serpopard, Qasali Ambusher, Skyhunter Skirmisher, Stalking Leonin
Please recommend any cats i've missed!

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.

Cards I am thinking about adding:
Ajani, Caller of the Pride
Ajani, Mentor of Heroes
Ajani, Valiant Protector
Nahiri, the Lithomancer
Oath of Ajani
Waiting in the Weeds
Secure the Wastes
Masterwork of Ingenuity
Green Sun's Zenith
Open the Armory
Let me know what you think??
I am going for a lot of creatures and equipping creatures to make them huge!!
Still need to look into more artifacts, enchantment, sorcery, and instant cards to put in.
Also need help with lands!!!

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