Lost Leonin Discussion

With hydras you will want a lot of ramp so of course Sol Ring but then look at the key runes and signets Golgari Signet Orzhov Keyrune. I would look to replace Druid of the Cowl with better options like Elvish Mystic or Fyndhorn Elves. Terramorphic Expanse and Command Tower will help with color fixing. Black Market is great ramp in black.

Well windbrisk would not be good for a voltron build. But if you lowered the CMC of your spells you could get more creatures out. If you wanted to attack with lots of creatures to win you should bring the creature count up closer to 30.
I just thought of a great one hit kill creature for you Lost Leonin. You just have to get him up to 5 power then he would deal 10 infect damage and win you the game I'm one shot. To help him get through Trailblazer's Boots

If you put a Temple Garden or Savannah in Nature's Lore for Farseek. Nature's Lore is CMC2 for 1 Mana = Net -1. Farseek it enters tapped so it's CMC2 for 0 Mana = Net -2. Costs you 2 life though for Temple Garden. In addition to mana fixing, they also work with Sunpetal Grove ETB.
You should run Puresteel Paladin instead of Brass Squire, if Brass Squire was like CMC1 it would make sense, but CMC3, that's crazy. Puresteel Paladin also gives you the draw for playing artifacts/equipments!

I like the myriad flavor and the pump up / ETB flavor of your deck!
Mirror Entity could be an interesting one for you, he is a shapeshifter/cat, and can make all the attackers X/X.
Sword of Light and Shadow and Sword of Feast and Famine won't work with the Eminence triggers as well due to the Protection, but they are pretty utility on their own, and since you have multiple attackers, probably doesn't affect you.
Stand to be corrected, but with Myriad the enter tapped and attacking, so it won't trigger properly with Beastmaster Ascension. Might be too slow, but once it triggers it's good.
Not a fan of Hungry Lynx, if they remove him, then they have a bunch of deathtouch blockers to kill your big cats or pumpers.
You have some pretty high CMC's and Lifecrafter's Bestiary and Blind Obedience and such take mana, but don't see much tutor or land enablers. Maybe a Steelshaper's Gift or some type of tutor cat Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith or Taj-Nar Swordsmith to get the Sword of the Animist.
It's strange our decks are similar in spell counts but quite different in design and strategy. Cool build. +1

I mentioned my WonderCats deck in a previous comment, but let me elaborate a bit with some of my own thoughts, if I may? First off, some things I really like in your deck: Dawn Charm, Chameleon Colossus, Skyhunter Skirmisher, Skyhunter Prowler, Regal Caracal, Hunter's Insight, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Duelist's Heritage, Lost Leonin, Adorned Pouncer, & Rancor are all awesome additions! Some amazing cats that are glaringly absent are Mirri, Cat Warrior & Brimaz, King of Oreskos, both of which I would include in any Cat-deck. If you are going to keep Grafted Exoskeleton, one of the best cats you could run is Leonin Abunas. If you re-vamp for more of the equipment theme at any point, I would definitely include Abunas, as well as Balan, Wandering Knight, Sigarda's Aid, Steelshaper's Gift, Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith / Hammer of Nazahn, & even Stonehewer Giant & Puresteel Paladin. Kemba, Kha Regent is ok, as is Leonin Shikari, but the other cards I mentioned have proven more significant when going with the equip theme. Some things have removed: Pride Sovereign is great in theory, but too slow & vulnerable in practice. Leonin Relic-Warder puts a big fat target on himself when he enters, which does cause that player to use up resources targeting him, but then you and that player just fall behind the other people at the table and he eventually gets his stuff back (& I don't think it gives enough of a tempo swing to warrant a slot). Wily Bandar is terrible imo. Watchers of the Dead, too, & same with Whitemane Lion (unless you have some ETB abilities to abuse). Have you considered using Vedalken Orrery or Sun Titan? Both seem like they would work very well in your current build. Angelic Destiny would be sweet with this recurring-enchantment-theme, as would Sterling Grove. Herald's Horn is actually very good for any tribal deck (it's basically card draw & ramp, in one card!). I would replace Mana Confluence with Brushland, which is strictly-better in a Selesnya deck since it can tap for colorless without dealing damage. Sylvan Library is the card I am always most eager to draw by turn 2 in every game, & I would highly HIGHLY recommend getting it. Sensei's Divining Top is also pretty awesome. Late game, my best top-deck by far is Genesis Wave. GET IT. USE IT. Wins games all by itself. Gilded Lotus would probably work well here too if you need more ramp (I use Thran Dynamo because I am heavy on the equipment). I would run a Quietus Spike in any deck with a Double Strike sub-theme, since even a 1/1 buffed with Arahbo's eminence & double strike (say, a flyer like Skyhunter Skirmisher) takes an opponent's life total from 40 down to 7 in just one swing. LOL! I've really enjoyed Bloodforged Battle-Axe with double strike, too, but it is really best with Sigarda's Aid & Hammer of Nazahn, since paying equip costs on twenty equipment can be a bit much.. but I have HAD TWENTY on the board, which is sweet. Anyways, these are just my ramblings, but hopefully I can help in some way- Good Luck, fellow Cat Warrior! (Cat Warrior, counts as a Cat Warrior)

Firstly, I notice your SLUG is super-cats-2, does that mean there is a super-cats-1! If not you can reset your slug in the edit deck option.
I've had a lot of success with Alms Collector, primarily to shutdown Grixis () or Izzet () or mono- Show and Tell + Omniscience + Enter the Infinite combos. It's great against lots of other things like Blue Sun's Zenith and almost every draw in . Highly recommend him.
Tempt with Discovery seems dangerous. CMC4 for 1 land isn't a good conversion ratio. Cultivate or Kodama's Reach are CMC3 for 2. Let's say an opponent needs to ramp as well, a bad case would be a Maze of Ith making your Eminence useless, or they get closer to their combo. If it ramps you 3 additional lands, is the only positive outcome. A little too dangerous for my taste, and my guess, will probably only net you 1 land for way too much. Rhonas the Indomitable would like that extra mana, and if you have ANY cat + eminence, you get a 5/5 Indestructible, Deathtouch attacker who can + and trample a cat for CMC3.
With all your equipment, begging for a Lost Leonin to give you a finishing attack with equipment or you +1's.
Stonehewer Giant seems made for this deck with all those equipments.
Don't really like Hungry Lynx, I thought I would, but loaded opponents up with 1/1 blockers isn't that great. They aren't going to attack the rats into protection cats just to + your creatures, and they can't block cats with them, and once Hungry Lynx is gone, now what do you do, all your non-first strike cats are in trouble!
With only 25 creatures, and not a token-centric build I found Metallic Mimic to slow, and not that powerful. The extra +1 here and there rarely made an impact, even with guys like Pride Sovereign, Regal Caracal though is awesome with.
Path to Exile also good.

Interesting update and feedback from your games. My opinion is that Arahbo, Roar of the World is already a Tier 4 Commander, and Selsnya () doesn't have any strong combos or synergies, and none that I've been able to create (yet) that involve only Cats!
Infect is the primary (and only) way Arahbo, Roar of the World can actually win. You're not going to bludgeon 3 other players in a pod for 40 damage and still be around to tell the tale. With the exception perhaps of Felidar Sovereign once in a blue moon, I don't think there's much else to build on.
What Tier commanders are in your pod?
Heck even Mono-, eg. Teferi, Temporal Archmage, use the same thing, or ultimate planeswalkers over and over.
Even Tier 1.5 Golgari () The Gitrog Monster doesn't care.
Tier 2 Mardu () eg. Alesha, Who Smiles at Death combo off.
Can keep going on and on, but without Infect, I can't see how Arahbo, Roar of the World would be worth playing, and how it would possibly win?
I guess in a pod like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Nekusar, the Mindrazer, and Rakdos, Lord of Riots I could see thinking Infect wasn't fair. Heck, even Tier 4 Samut, Voice of Dissent single Commander damage hits.
None of these things are any more or less fair than Infect, and actually, they are MUCH easier to do than Infect. We only have Lost Leonin, Triumph of the Hordes and Grafted Exoskeleton to get the job done on 3 players anyway! Don't even get a Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon and Hatred in . It's an uphill battle before drawing the first card!
Very interesting. PS: I did put Archangel of Thune and Spike Feeder combo in my Arahbo, Roar of the World still testing it out, both kind of worked with the lifegain and counters sub-theme of my cat deck, but neither is a cat. Still trying to find some SOLID combos with cats, let me know if you've found any! Very easy to Tutor with the creature pulls and things like Chord of Calling.
