701.37b A permanent can be exerted even if it's not tapped or has already been exerted in a turn. If you exert a permanent more than once before your next untap step, each effect causing it not to untap expires during the same untap step.
Few others to consider
Den Protector really good recursion warrior
Hidden Dragonslayer removal warrior
Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist control opponent attack and blocks
Samut, Voice of Dissent really good overall warrior and gives haste
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed burns casters like crazy
Gilt-Leaf Winnower removal one a warrior

You want an aggressive commander and a non-aggressive commander? That's a bit... broad, but I'll try. I'll stick with Selesnya since that's the only restriction.
Good aggressive commanders are Rhys the Redeemed for tokens (and can be mono-W or mono-G if you want), Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith for voltron, and Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist for a flexible commander that can be anywhere in between. Ezuri, Renegade Leader heads a powerful elfball strategy, and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is good for stompy or Eldrazi. Sram, Senior Edificer is another good voltron commander, and either of the Odrics (Odric, Lunarch Marshal or Odric, Master Tactician) work for mono-white.
For non-aggressive commanders, Gaddock Teeg is a powerful stax piece. Selvala, Explorer Returned and Karametra, God of Harvests are both really good and open ended, anywhere from group hug to enchantress to turbo-ramp. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails is good for control, and either of the Thalias (Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben) or Hokori, Dust Drinker work for prison/stax. Druids is sneaky good with Seton, Krosan Protector, and mono-green has some good lands decks with Azusa, Lost but Seeking or Titania, Protector of Argoth.

I definitely use that strategy. I have many, many creature tutors, which I use to pull Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist. Because enchantments are harder to tutor for me, and I always tutor Sylvan Library or Duelist's Heritage or Greater Good (unless situation calls for Aura Shards or Rancor), Dueling Grounds wouldn't get tutored. Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist does the same thing (and better, doesn't restrict my attack), so if I have a Rhonas the Indomitable or an enabler like Silverblade Paladin I'm still free to attack with everyone.
I really need Sterling Grove back in for an additional Sylvan Library tutor. I only played 3 cat games this past FNM/Weekend, and didn't find I needed the Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist in any of those. So I think it can be situational. For example, vs. Kess, Dissident Mage or Mizzix of the Izmagus it's actually going to hurt me. There was a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight but was able to take that down with infect/doublestrike before it would get aggressive. If I do (rarely) get some cat tokens going, they wouldn't be effective either.
I'm adding to my maybeboard for now, have to think about it more. Initially I don't need the duplication of Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist ability, whose killing a 6/5 first strike attacking cat. At CMC3 it is quite viable though. Hmm. Great suggestion, under consideration. Still feel more creature tutors is still better as it gives Modularity to pull different solutions/offense (like an Eldritch Evolution or something)

Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist without the "card:" in front has worked for me already for now!!!
Thanks for that x

[[card:Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist]] --> Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist
[[Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist]] --> Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist
The "card:" prefix seems to produce a bad link. I'm not sure a prefix was ever intended for cards, so it may simply be pointing to something other than the card when it sees a prefix. Were there any other specific cards you were having problems linking too?

Also Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist card link links to someone's deck? don't think that is intended?

Hey TzickyT no worries, the community is here to help each other out!
Remember the Fallen would be great if you're building a Hunting Grounds / The Mending of Dominaria / Satyr Wayfinder / Mulch / Crucible of Worlds type deck (and others). At CMC3 it's pretty good, it returns a creature and an artifact, so it turns 1 card into 2 cards, just need a way to get the cards in the graveyard. Eternal Witness would be awesome in this build too. CMC3 is a bit slow for my strategy, and because it returns to the hand, and it's a sorcery, I wouldn't run it. If it was Instant, probably. Or if it was CMC2. If it slows me down a turn, it's not good for this build, have to fast infect and punch through (in this particular build).
It's funny I don't run any board-wipe in my build, this one is good because most cats can dodge it (before eminence). For CMC3 its very good. It's going to miss a bunch of creatures you really want to get rid of though, that something like Wrath of God will, could be a dead draw against certain commanders (tokens notably). It depends on your build, I don't see a Arahbo, Roar of the World in your public decks, but in my build, I use evasion (Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice, Trample, Doublestrike) to overcome blockers, I don't need to clear the board. I thought about Divine Reckoning as well, but I really dislike situational cards that may miss the real target. I'd probably also want protection, like Faith's Reward and abuse that infinitely, or Make a Stand / Rootborn Defenses / Teferi's Protection that type of effect to go along with it. I'm even contemplating taking out more protection / control to get more tutor, like Eldritch Evolution into the deck.
Blackblade Reforged with it's Equip 7 is too much. In my build, I'm not equipping Legendary creatures, Lost Leonin, Skyhunter Skirmisher, Adorned Pouncer etc. And rarely cast Arahbo, Roar of the World. There are some cool Legendary cats to equip, like Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist but I don't have enough Legendary to make it viable. It really needs Sigarda's Aid / Hammer of Nazahn / Puresteel Paladin / Balan, Wandering Knight / Stonehewer Giant / Stoneforge Mystic / Balan, Wandering Knight along with land enablers Cultivate / Kodama's Reach / Oreskos Explorer / Sword of the Animist / Nissa's Pilgrimage / Burnished Hart / Traverse the Outlands / Crucible of Worlds / Etc. A slight modification to this build could make it very effective. Because it doesn't have Trample, Haste, Lifelink, Draw, or Infect built in, it's not a priority. I'd still much rather have a Grafted Exoskeleton or a Steelshaper's Gift (or the likes) to Tutor my Grafted Exoskeleton, than draw a Blackblade Reforged. You'll also notice i've removed duplicate effects like I have Loxodon Warhammer but no Behemoth Sledge because they do the same things. I'd just rather tutor the better one Loxodon Warhammer in this case, than have 2 cards that do the same thing. Just my way of playing, I like consistency over force. I could see this with some nice Legendary creatures and enablers working out very well though, especially with Doublestrike/Trample mechanics. Imagine casting Berserk on a cat wielding this sword!! I do like this type of mechanic, and with you can overload the heck out of it, Lashwrithe is one of my favorites, nice too cause it's a living weapon. Would also be good on a Commander that does Commander damage as a strategy (Arahbo, Roar of the World doesn't do Commander damage)
All these are viable if properly supported in the deck. Like you wouldn't play a Prowling Serpopard in a Retribution of the Meek build, and Kemba, Kha Regent would be in a Blackblade Reforged build, as examples.
They all are too much protection, or potentially too slow / high CMC for me. I'm still testing whenever I can, deck is still not functionally perfect yet, but I do consistently pull my Lost Leonin + Eminence + Doublestrike enabler though, which is the goal! Much of the reason I don't play Lightning Greaves because I need to abuse the Eminence trigger.
