Spirits on Cat.

5 days ago

Hey flamingweasels,

Are any of the degenerate combos cat tribal specific. I'm trying to find some cat-centric combos for my Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH Deck but haven't found anything good yet.

All I've been able to come-up with so far, but are really janky are:

Temur Sabertooth + Karametra's Acolyte + Swiftfoot Boots + 4 Devotion | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or + 1 Devotion Infinite Mana. No clue what I would do with this mana even if I made it.

Cryptolith Rite + Leonin Battlemage + Oketra's Monument + Whitemane Lion | Infinite 1/1 Warrior Tokens. Who doesn't love 4-card combos that involve 2 cats to make 1/1 warriors that don't even have haste. On the plus side Oketra's Monument looks cat-ish.

Aluren + Fleetfoot Panther or Whitemane Lion | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. Aluren terrifies me, none of the cats are ultimately good on their own either.

Changeling Hero + Changeling Titan | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. They may not look like cats but they are... I guess.

Leonin Relic-Warder + Oblivion Ring or Journey to Nowhere + Sun Titan or Karmic Guide or Reveillark + Greater Good | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. Soon as you say Sun Titan or Karmic Guide or Reveillark which is Saffi Eriksdotter so why would I waste time with Cats.

I've been reading cat after cat card, and nothing has come to me yet like the Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder | Infinite Life + Infinite +1/+1 Counters type combo.

I'm not sure Chord of Calling + Felidar Sovereign + 40 life is even a combo. More just a mana sponge at life < 40.

If you have anything please let me know!

A cat wearing a Helm of Obedience would be obnoxious enough for me, but not sure any cats enable it. Rest in Peace no-cat combo.

Whats your Tooth and Nail combo, any cats?

Any help very much appreciated.

If you'd like more ways of exiling your opponents stuff I'd recommend Faceless Butcher, Mesmeric Fiend, Leonin Relic-Warder, Petravark.

If you'd like to add more insult to injury I'd use cards like Tainted AEther, Shivan Harvest, Vampiric Rites, and Erratic Portal as other ways to trigger the leave the battlefield effect before the enter the battlefield effect. Flameshadow Conjuring and Panharmonicon can also double those triggers as well.

I REALLY like your deck. By using things from your side it actually beats the monstrous Affinity archetype !

I tried it with Momentary Blink instead of Cloudshift and it works way much better for the long run with its flashback.I didn't understand why you've put Red Akroma in this deck so I just changed it to the white in my list.Feel free to explain to me why you've chosed it !

Here's a different decklist. Don't get me wrong, outside of my Momentary Blink advice, I'm not trying to tell you how to build your deck, I've just tried a little bit different list to counter the most threatening aggro decks.

Mono Red Burn is actually rolling on this deck, I added 4 Dragon's Claw to the SB as the 2 Leyline of Sanctity are not enough to counter it. Those 4 claws actually completely wall it.

I really like your deck, I'm trying to get back at MTG and after more testing, there are lots of chances I buy/trade for this decklist !

(don't really mind the SB atm)

2 Venser, the Sojourner

2 Blade Splicer

1 Clone

3 Detention Sphere

1 Ephara, God of the Polis

4 Flickerwisp

2 Lavinia of the Tenth

4 Restoration Angel

1 Stonehorn Dignitary

4 Wall of Omens

1 Phyrexian Ingester

4 Leonin Relic-Warder

1 Eerie Interlude

4 Momentary Blink

2 Leyline of Sanctity

4 Glacial Fortress

4 Hallowed Fountain

4 Island

9 Plains

3 Temple of Enlightenment

SB: 1 Kitchen Finks

SB: 2 Rest in Peace

SB: 4 Spreading Seas

SB: 2 Stony Silence

SB: 2 Supreme Verdict

SB: 4 Cloudshift

SB: 2 Akroma, Angel of Wrath

SB: 4 Dragon's Claw

I have a question about the Leonin Relic-Warder combo. If you sac the LRW before its ETB resolves, wouldnt you exile Animate Dead permanently? I was curious because isnt their a similar interaction with Tidehollow Sculler and Flickerwisp? Also, would this be a pretty good entry deck for cedh?

Azorious ETBs is a really cool deck concept. After playing around with it for a while, I found out that you need a glut of variable ETBs to compete - this turns Cloudshift and other spells of that type into potent threats that can adapt to the situation. After much experimentation, I came to this budget deck:

Azorious MORPHine trip

that uses a Pauper combo brought to Modern - Reality Acid + Leonin Relic-Warder + Venser, the Sojourner to make the opponent sacrifice their permanents. Add the anti-combat rhino Stonehorn Dignitary to the mix for control and you have a recipe for destruction.

Mitch.gibbs the combo works as follows:
1: Animate Dead enters the battlefield, returning Leonin Relic-Warder to the battlefield from the graveyard.
2: Leonin Relic-Warder exiles Animate Dead, causing Animate Dead's ability to trigger and put Leonin Relic-Warder into the graveyard.
3: Leonin Relic-Warder is no longer on the battlefield, so Animate Dead returns to the battlefield and puts Leonin Relic-Warder back on the battlefield.
4: Leonin Relic-Warder exiles Animate Dead, restarting the cycle.

Hello, thanks for the upvote and comment on my deck! Imperial Seal is not required at all, your deck will still function excellently without one. In fact, I don't find myself playing my deck very often because of how linear it is. That's my biggest complaint about the deck actually, although it's a complicated combo, it always wins in the same way (usually starting with Protean Hulk). It's sort of like playing Ad Nauseam in Modern. Oh well.

Anyways, here's my suggestions for your next upgrades: Eternal Witness, Birthing Pod, Dance of the Dead (I like the enchantment reanimate spells because of the interaction with Leonin Relic-Warder), Life/Death, and maybe a Journey to Eternity  Flip. If you get a Birthing Pod, Felidar Guardian becomes amazing, allowing you to turn any 3-drop into a 5-drop. Recruiter of the Guard is great at finding combo pieces and not too pricey. Altar of Bone and Eldritch Evolution are great ways to add consistency to your combo as well.

For cuts, I would suggest Will-o'-the-Wisp, Angel of Glory's Rise, and maybe Utopia Sprawl (looks like you sometimes won't have a forest when you want to cast this). I think Selvala and Yahenni are OK for now, but I like Caustic Caterpillar more than Qasali Pridemage. I also think some of the above suggestions are better than Breath of Life, Zombify and Reclaim.

One more thing, I like the idea of Entomb in this deck (yours and mine), mostly because having a Blood Artist in the 'yard is nearly always better than having it in the deck. I think I will add it to my list, so I appreciate that. I'll subscribe to your deck and try to keep up with any changes, and remember that my suggestions are just a quick takes and you always have the right idea for what will work best in your deck!

Hi Nic44 and YourOwnFreeWill,

Thanks for your comments! Sorry this is such a late reply life has been busy recently so I haven't been able to dedicate time to my hobbies, but I'll address both your questions:

Nic44 Thank you for the support! Open the Armory has been a great addition, it was on my testing list for a while and is a vast improvement on Steelshaper's Gift. That is because of the reasons you listed, since that gives me more lines and allows the deck to run more fluently :) ! I'll keep Necromancy in for now as it is a dynamic win condition but I'll elaborate in this next part.

YourOwnFreeWill Thanks for the additional feedback I apreciate it a lot, and I apologise again for how long i've put off my reply. Yawgmoth's Will is a value card first and foremost. It allows us to recover from failed combo attempts later in the game and can pull together lines when we are trying to win the game. An example of this is it allows us to reuse our Dark Ritual effects and abuse Lion's Eye Diamond as well, we can drain this excess mana into Rolling Earthquake to kill everyone but by using Angel's Grace survive the damage and/or this can be coupled with Blood Artist effects and creatures to drain for additional damage. Another use for Yawgmoth's Will is it allows us to transfer our floating mana from rituals into 'static mana' (mana invested in permanents such as Sol Ring) to hold up the Leonin Relic-Warder combo for the next player upkeep with a combination of Entomb or Insolent Neonate, Necromancy and a Blood Artist effect. The Leonin Relic-Warder line can be supported by the use of doomsday to put cards back into our library or return them to our hands using a combination of Doomsday and Skullclamp or razaketh, the foulblooded , some cards worth returning are discard and interaction for the next upkeep. A side note, when attempting this line be sure to remove Faerie Macabre from opponent's hands as there is no way of recovering at instant speed to it's activation.

Thanks for spending your time commenting people, I'll attempt to be somewhat punctual when addressing comments and updates but it is getting harder for me to do so, but I will keep trying :D. Hope you all have a good easter!
