Leonin Warleader would play great in this deck.

babushkasara on A Deck I Take Great... PRIDE In!

You mention the pre-cons so I'm not sure if you're trying to keep it super close to the original or not - regardless, I have some suggestions.

Lands:

I personally don't like the storage lands like Saltcrusted Steppe. If you've had success with it, then keep it in by all means. I dislike Opal Palace because you (hopefully) won't be recasting your commander a bunch and if you are...ouch. In a two color deck, Vivid Grove and Vivid Meadow should probably be replaced by lands like Sunpetal Grove, Bountiful Promenade, Scattered Groves, Temple of Plenty, or even just basics.

Ramp:

You've got a little ramp, but a Selesnya Signet would be a great addition. I adore Traverse the Outlands and am glad to see it here.

Removal:

You absolutely need some more removal. Beast Within, Naturalize, Disenchant, Nature's Claim, many options exist in Green/White and they should definitely show up in this deck. The equipment focus suggests Dispatch. Vivien Reid though more expensive is also fantastic in this regard.

Card Draw:

Shamanic Revelation is a card I enjoy in decks that go even a little bit wide, like this one. Huatli, Radiant Champion's emblem (which is fairly easy to get) can provide a lot of card draw over the course of a game.

Equipment:

Loxodon Warhammer is a lovely second copy of Behemoth Sledge. Hero's Blade works well with all the legendary cats you have.

Cats:

Leonin Warleader doesn't care about equipment but he does make cats. For more equipment-y cats, consider Kemba, Kha Regent or Balan, Wandering Knight. Though not a cat, Danitha Capashen, Paragon makes your equipment cheaper.

Cards I'd Remove:

Kindred Boon just doesn't do enough in my opinion. You've got equipment that give them indestructible and someone will just Swords or Path the creature anyway. Spirit of the Hearth is expensive for what you get. Unless your meta means you NEED to be hexproof, I'd take it out. Felidar Sovereign is interesting. This isn't really a lifegain deck so I feel like it's not really a good fit. Relic Crush can easily be replaced by previously suggested removal that costs way less mana.

What about Resplendent Angel or Leonin Warleader? If a Divine Visitation is on the field with a Leonin Warleader things can get out of hand pretty fast.

I made a kitty list so i´ll bring a few suggestions for ya! Leonin Vanguard, Steppe Lynx, Sacred Cat, Adorned Pouncer, Leonin Arbiter, Prowling Serpopard, Leonin Warleader, Regal Caracal

And of course everyones favourite kitty! (There's a lot of Ajanis and all of them fits in a midrange-creature based deck so up to you but this two are my preferences) Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants

I agree with what sagramore is saying, pick a theme with how you want to construct your deck and go from there. From the comments and the way you want to go, which is going wide than stick to anthem like effects and equipments that will help you build your army and ramp.

Since you said you are on a tight budget I'll list some cards that are less than $5 that might be able to help you out.

Rampant Growth, Cultivate, Farseek, Faith's Reward, Wrath of God, Hunter's Insight, Relic Seeker, Auriok Steelshaper, Steelshaper Apprentice, Angel of Jubilation, Remember the Fallen, Cathars' Crusade, Behemoth Sledge, Qasali Pridemage, Leonin Warleader, Prowling Serpopard, Reclamation Sage, and Krosan Grip.

Hope some of the cards listed would be able to help you out!

It seems like the creatures you're using aren't very strong. I'd try something that makes multiple creatures at once like Call to the Feast, Graveyard Marshal, History of Benalia, or Leonin Warleader.

Oh? Then if you want to make it a life deck, I'd encourage you to take a look at Karlov of the Pings. It's a life gain deck of mine, has a lot of great stuff. However it should be noted that to truly break Krav's ability there should be some token producers too.

Benevolent Offering can win you some friends on the table. Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a powerhouse. Captain's Claws can be equipped to Regna. Cenn's Enlistment can get rid of garbage lands. Doomed Traveler is a generally great card. Entreat the Angels is awesome. Ghoulcaller Gisa is oddly both a sac outlet AND token producer. Hero of Bladehold is a legend. Hidden Stockpile is honestly pretty good. Hoofprints of the Stag and Krav work great together. Hunted Witness is a slightly worse Doomed Traveler, Icatian Crier is a great way to pitch lands. Legion's Landing  Flip is a nice one-drop and a permanent source in the late game. Leonin Warleader is nice. Lingering Souls is a classic. Militia's Pride, along with all these other cards, makes me wonder if attack-based tokens is a viable modern strategy. Mobilization is great if the game gets stagnant. Monastery Mentor is soooo good. Necromancer's Covenant is insane against aristocrats. Ogre Slumlord is a great rattlesnake and honestly the freaking best. Ophiomancer isn't quite as good, but still nice. Patrol Signaler- again with the attackers! Pawn of Ulamog could also be a great mana source, in the same vein as Sifter of Skulls. Promise of Bunrei seems really good. Quest for the Gravelord is a good thicc boi. Raise the Alarm is actually pretty underrated. Regal Bloodlord is great here. Sacred Mesa is great, and very repeatable. Smothering Abomination would be devastating here. Sengir Autocrat is 4 sac targets. Skirsdag High Priest can make some thicc bois. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Sorin, Grim Nemesis are both perfect for this deck. Twilight Drover is also freaking amazing. Wingmate Roc is, once again, practically designed to be played here!
