White creature spells you cast cost less to cast.
Whenever you cast a creature spell, create a 1/1 white Warrior creature token with vigilance.
Oketra's Monument Discussion
3 days ago
Barbarian_Sun_Pope thanks for your suggestions.
I will consider Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist for my kitty commander deck. however as you say. (and unfortunately is not modern legal) (sad cat noises)
on regards of Oketra the True I had not consider her before... but is she herself a cat? (unfortunately from the card description she is not "cat" and she get not benefits from Coat of Arms (not human, no cat, no cleric) ) now, she is for sure a cat lady... so she still matches the deck flavor... i will consider her.
still she might fit the Crazy cat lady... on regards of Oketra's Monument ... i not so sure the only creature cost i need reduced is the Regal Caracal and adding Oketra's Monument is to push something out of the deck... however I will consider for another cat tribal deck i have in mind.

Have you considered Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist ? She works well with your Equipment and a lot of the cats in your deck.
Oketra the True (Cat god) and Oketra's Monument (Monument to Cat God) also fits the theme loosely and works with the lifegain in the deck. Considering the number of creatures in the deck, you should be able to utilize both.
Hope this helps.

Here’s a list of cost reducers that are all budget cards that this deck would really benefit from:
- Dragonlord's Servant
- Dragonspeaker Shaman
- Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma
- Semblance Anvil
- Nightscape Familiar
- Stormscape Familiar
- Sunscape Familiar
- Thornscape Familiar
- Thunderscape Familiar
- Bontu's Monument
- Hazoret's Monument
- Kefnet's Monument
- Oketra's Monument
- Rhonas's Monument
There’s 8 others but they can’t really be considered budget. Another card that is amazing in a dragon deck is Sarkhan the Masterless That static ability is amazing because the damage being done to the attacking creatures is dealt before any combat damage. So if you have 6 dragons out they would deal 6 damage to each creature attacking you before they get a chance to deal any damage themselves.

Hey there ExtraEasy,
Thanks for your comment and compliment. I'm getting pulled to red due to the good boardwipes ( Deafening Clarion ) I might have in my sideboard, as well as a good 4-drop Angel. I am considering dropping Red, but it'll come down to how useful it is in the sideboard.
Hey there 9-lives,
Thanks for your comment. I considered Oketra's Monument when the deck was originally just Red-White. However, I decided to add Green for Dromoka's Command , more effective ramp, and Once Upon a Time . I don't think that Oketra's Monument is objectively better than my current ramp choices, as it costs one more, and without T1 Llanowar, then I'm forced to use T3 playing a ramp card instead of playing a Resplendent Angel or Angel of Vitality .

Embalming is an activated ability, not casting. it doesn’t interact with Oketra's Monument at all.
If, by some method you’re able to cast a copy of a creature card, it will trigger the monument, but creatures, token or not, just entering the battlefield by other means don’t trigger Oketra's Monument

Do tokens count as creatures? As an instance, If I use Oketra's Monument and then play Sacred Cat from the Graveyard as Embalm, would the token count as a creature spell thus triggering Oketra's Monument so that I get a 1/1 white Warrior token? And, if so, would multiple tokens generate multiple triggers of Oketra's Monument?

Oh dang! I didn't even notice that! Ha. Good catch, Beluga2017.
Honestly, I wouldn't even run Gilded Goose , since there's no other cards to support Food tokens. And the deck doesn't need ramp that much — it just needs more lands to ensure consistent land drops for the first 5 turns, in order to land Regal Caracal on time. I'd much prefer 3 more lands in the Birds' place. Or at least 1-2 more, and then maybe another 1-drop cat — I'd recommend Charmed Stray or Leonin Vanguard , mentioned above — or an increase in one of the 2-drops, like more Ajani's Pridemate .
@9-lives — With the addition of Oreskos Sun Guide , I even more recommend replacing Heroes' Reunion with Blessed Alliance , since then you have TWO different creatures that benefit from being untapped.
I'm on the fence regarding Oketra's Monument . It acts as passive ramp and does benefit many of your creatures. But it doesn't benefit 10 of your creatures (4x Sacred Cat, 3x Pride Sovereign, and 3x Metallic Mimic). Not counting Birds of Paradise, which need to be cut anyways, that's 40% of your creatures! I'd have to playtest with it to know whether I am always happy to draw it or not. I think if you are going to run it, then the 2x you have right now is the correct number.
