Leonin Shikari Discussion

DarkSepho on Running Wild With Scissors

It's just an evasion tool most of the times, but you can use it as a board wipe with some instant-equip tricks (Leonin Shikari) or even better with Grappling Hook, but I don't think you have space for that

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

Thanks MegaMatt13. Will digest and figure out what to cut to get them in.

Berserk has been in and out, I thought the same about the removal aspect of it too which is cool, especially if it's attacking an opponent in a Multi-Player pod. Have to find room.

Pride of Lions I keep going back and forth on, the idea is to tutor trample, Green Sun's Zenith into Rhonas the Indomitable or Steelshaper's Gift into Loxodon Warhammer, or Arahbo, Roar of the World last ability... so Trample overcomes all but the toughness of the blocker anyway, where Pride of Lions does that extra damage, but then gets killed probably without actually killing his blocker either (Because if the blocker can't kill him why did they block him in the first place, and he does no damage to the blocker). He's good, should find something to out for him.

Metallic Mimic is really borderline, I think about his interaction with Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Kemba, Kha Regent, Pride Sovereign + Regal Caracal (Especially for my Felidar Sovereign win-con), Ajani, Caller of the Pride. I originally had more, like White Sun's Zenith and some others, but there are less. Metallic Mimic on his own isn't that exciting 2/1 for . He's definitely high on the cut list.

Puresteel Paladin + Leonin Shikari makes Eminence and Lightning Greaves a viable option together, but its janky. I cut Sword of Light and Shadow and Sword of Feast and Famine already because of the same issues. It's really the haste more than the protection I want anyway since Selsnya is quite limited for haste.

Both suggestions Heirloom Blade and Fireshrieker are great, I'm struggling a bit with which cards to cut, and worried about getting too few cats.

Thanks for the feedback, MUCH appreciated.

Yes indeed. Leonin Shikari is already a great combo with Lightning Greaves: "all your creatures have shroud."

Thank you for the fast response
So it would be a little combo if you have both Leonin Shikari and Puresteel Paladin (or lots of mana) out. But i guess it's too gimmicky and Balan, Wandering Knight or any other double striker can do the same job.

I have a ruling question:If you attack with multiple creatures and you have Leonin Shikari out is it possible to requip your your equipments after the equipped creature hit, but before the new eqipped creature does its damage?

PS: Is removing Angel of Sanctions still a thing? You said he will be most likely the first one to go ;)

Oh I have never seen Kusari-Gama before but I might need to playtest it with Leonin Shikari for some real mean wipes. In the games I've played with it, it already usually sets up with Avacyn being a nuclear bomb on the board and everyone trying not to trigger her. I like your ideas and they fit very will with my theme of highly discouraging people from attacking. Thanks and I'll look into working these cards in.

Hi (again) Seraph_Six,

First of all massive thanks for looking at so many of my decks; I greatly appreciate your help.I've tried obtaining a Leonin Shikari but none of the retailers I've approached still have one. Apparently, playing voltron is very popular where I live ... As soon as I've acquired one, I'll make a replacement.
