Creature — Cat Warrior
Nacatl War-Pride must be blocked by exactly one creature if able.
Whenever Nacatl War-Pride attacks, put X tokens that are copies of Nacatl War-Pride onto the battlefield tapped and attacking, where X is the number of creatures defending player controls. Exile the tokens at the beginning of the next end step.
Nacatl War-Pride Discussion
4 weeks ago
Two creature-based token makers that strike me as well-suited for commander are Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs and Nacatl War-Pride . Kazuul can either deter your opponents from attacking or give you tokens to block with; any that survive can be sac fodder for Thromak once you're ready to power him out. That the tokens are 3/3 seems relevant as well. War-Pride can give you a very wide attack, and since the tokens aren't exiled until end of turn, they can be devoured second main phase for a giant hellion. While looking at it tonight, I realized that giving extra combat steps with Aggravated Assault should cause each token to make tokens themselves. Further investigation revealed that the tokens would require haste to attack on any additional combat, but that's already worked into the deck anyway. Could be something to try? Sadly, I haven't gotten many games in with my deck, and don't think I've ever gotten to play either card, but they sound awesome to me in theory.
I also really like creatures that replace themselves when they die. Mitotic Slime is particularly awesome at this, as each time it dies it splits (after all, I don't care so much about the decreased p/t, but the increased creature count. More bodies to feed the beast!). I also run Blisterpod (gives an eldrazi token which can sac for mana), Brindle Shoat (gets bigger body upon death), Thragtusk (mm, taste the value!), Strangleroot Geist (comes back so long as it hasn't got a counter), and Wurmcoil Engine (not exactly a budget suggestion, but gives two bodies upon death). If you should go with a goblin subtheme, Mogg War Marshal and Goblin Marshal are possibilities, as well as Tuktuk the Explorer .

By tax, do you mean having to pay for each creature attacking? If so, Nacatl War-Pride is my go to for that situation. Ypu only have yo declare 1 attacker and use kamahl and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to take someone out. Another option in a group game is using Hydra Omnivore against the player with the least defenses and making it big, then you can damage the tax player indirectly. As far as other suggestions, you can opt out cards like Krosan Grip or Unravel the Aether for creatures that blow up artifacts and enchantments, it would make it easier to tutor for those effects. Bane of Progress could be really good if it's a continuous problem even though I don't like having to blow my own stuff up.
There's quite a few cards that are specifically in the deck for better interactions within my playgroup that can be changed out for more efficient ways to get big mana. I've been looking at adding Umbral Mantle as a third option for infinite mana and Thousand-Year Elixir as a way to speed up tapping my dorks and potential for big mana with the extra untap. Hopensome of these help. Otherwise hit me back and come up with more ideas to fight the problem.

Every time I see Nacatl War-Pride , I think of Kamahl, Fist of Krosa . He's overrun on a stick, but, also serves a great purpose with Nacatl. As you're getting ready to declare attackers, you can animate the defending players lands, which will give you even more tokens from Nacatl. It'll put them in a tough spot of either taking more damage or losing lands to prevent it. Not sure if it's your cup of tea for this sort of thing but I wanted to throw it out there just in case!
Depending on your meta it could also serve as a board wipe deterrent for a go-wide strategy.

Hey there!!! Fellow Kamahl player here, you have a great start so far. I have some suggestions that can help beef up the deck.
- Nacatl War-Pride - This creature pairs really well with kamahl, especially if you have Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or a transformed Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip out.
- Regal Force - big draw engine and another body for kamahl to beef up.
- Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - if you can afford her, pick one up. She generates so much mana it isn't funny.
- Selvala's Stampede - This card if you predominantly play group games, as you get a free creature from your library or free permanent for each player, no matter how they vote.
- Rishkar's Expertise - a big draw engine that lets you cast a free card.
- Lurking Predators - This card is amazing, especially in big group games.
- Garruk, Primal Hunter - Great token generator and draw engine.
- Hall of Gemstone - shuts down multi colored decks, and locks nongreen decks out of your turn so you can overrun without worry.
Those are just a few suggestions for you, here's a link to my kamahl deck for more ideas if you need them - Om nom Trample.
Enjoy and good luck!!

Great looking deck! We would probably replace Nacatl War-Pride with Mycoloth though, because the amount of tokens it generates does not depend on the amount of creatures any opponent would control. Also, since you tend to go wide a lot, and you're already using some boosters like Pathbreaker Ibex , have you considered adding Craterhoof Behemoth ? Last but not least, Umbral Mantle will often allow you to get infinite when combined with Gyre Sage , Karametra's Acolyte and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds .
Have fun playing! And as a fellow mono-green player, would you care to share your thoughts on one of our mono-green decks: enter link description here? We're very interested in your feedback.
With kind regards,

I won't suggest anything to cut, but I can give you a few more ideas to bloat the deck.
Eladamri's Call gives you easy access to any cat you feel you need at that moment.
I think you should put Mirari's Wake back in there; double mana and an anthem is no joke.
I know most players won't bother countering a cat, and this land is expensive, but if you have one lying around, you should just throw in a Cavern of Souls ; when you have some Temur Sabertooth shenanigans going on, it increases the likelihood of a blue player to have a response.

I've no list but there are some neat cats to include:
Qasali Pridemage , Leonin Warleader , Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist , Regal Caracal , Jazal Goldmane , Qasali Slingers , Temur Sabertooth , Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Felidar Sovereign , Nacatl War-Pride , Jareth, Leonine Titan and Fleecemane Lion .
I know some of these came in the deck or are really obvious but the seem to be among the better ones, i think.
