For starters, I would drop all the noncreature spells you're currently playing. That gives you 8 cards to work with; 4 of those are Path to Exile (or if you still want to keep it kinda budget On Thin Ice ) and for the other 4 I'd play Metallic Mimic . When you have access to potentially 16 one-drops (all really good one-drops, at that) Mimic is pretty insane.

After that, I'd cut down 2 Regal Caracal and a land (or -3 Caracal and -2 lands) and finish the playsets of Loam Lion , Savannah Lions , and Pride Sovereign . Caracal is a super strong card, but with a really good lord like King of the Pride and equally good aggro 1-2 drops, you don't actually need it.

Another thing you could do if you cut all the Caracals is play a set of Aether Vial . You would be able to get away with 21 lands that way since the top end of your curve would be 3 cmc and you'd have Vial. To make it simple, the changes would be this: -3 Caracal , -3 Forest/Plains, +1 Loam Lion , +1 Pride Sovereign , +4 Aether Vial . Given the power of Aether Vial, this would be the most competitive way to make this deck in my humble opinion.

For late game card advantage, 4 Horizon Canopy will do the trick, especially after cutting Caracals and even more so with Vial. As for the rest of the mana base, it's relatively simple to upgrade: 4 Windswept Heath , 2-3 Temple Garden , some fast lands and maybe a check land, and voila!

A final tip: if you have the gall, you can cut a set of 1-drops to fit in a set of Leonin Arbiter . Not only is it on theme, but it is great against more competitive decks with fetches and works with Path to Exile and Ghost Quarter . Arbiter is especially good at instant speed with Aether Vial since you can flash it in in response to a fetch, so there's some more incentive to turn this into a Vial deck. Remember not to play fetches yourself, though.

Hope this helps!

you might want to change the format of the deck from "modern" to "casual" if you're just looking for a budget version to play against friends.

i'd start by removing any creatures with cmc 4 or higher, as well as most noncreatures, so you can benefit from Collected Company . King of the Pride is also a staple. Adaptive Automaton will also count as a cat once in play.

Id heavily recommend Imposter of the Sixth Pride for it fitting the theme, as well as Mirror Entity , Changeling Hero , and Mirror of the Forebears for synergy with King of the Pride and other cards you have.

Turns out cats as a tribe actually has a lot of chonky 1 drops. This got me thinking that maybe the new King of the Pride isn't just a meme (spoilers: it's still a meme) but paired with some utility 2 drops and a sideboard packed with hate for the degenerate meta and we might have a somewhat viable zoo deck for modern.

Hi Foxfire_Celest

King of the Pride seems like an inclusion. Finale of Devastation I need to get my hands on.

I'll try and get some further updates to the list with the new sets in the next month or so! I'll tag you once I've done my review.

I'm still trying to find a good "Cat" combo, there must be something with Felidar Guardian but haven't found the right combo yet.

No data for this card yet.
