Penumbra Bobcat Discussion

This list seems kind of hybrid or conflicted. It's got some equipment to help suit up, but it's also got a pretty aggressive bunch of creatures. Seems to be able to swing either voltron or aggro. It would probably be worth it to trim down the list of 1-ofs and really streamline the strategy.

If you want some aggression, Leonin Armorguard seems right up your alley. Nice curve-topper that pumps your team on etb.

Pouncing Jaguar is really aggressive, especially if you drop it turn one. The echo cost is negligible in case you were planning on playing a tapland T2 and didn't have another onedrop. Scythe Tiger is a similar card that's an uberstronk onedrop with a substantial drawback.

Leonin Den-Guard and Sunspear Shikari are the two best equippable cats. If you want to push that archetype more, I'd fill these out to playsets.

Other cards worth considering: Penumbra Bobcat and Sacred Cat both provide resistance to Edict effects, which is super important if you plan going voltron.

Wow. this is awesome. I don't have a lot of these cards, but I was hoping to find a deck like this to tweek my own cat deck. I have been collecting the cats for years.

Some suggestions if you haven't thought of them:

I look forward to playing with this list for my own deck.

I love playing with Aluren, and have been trying to think of an EDH deck to run it in. Playing with white in there, you could run Enduring Renewal with the possibility of setting off any number of infinite combos. Add in Grave Pact to clear a board really fast, and Fecundity to draw cards, and you add some more possibilities. The Cadaver Imp smooths out the drawback of Enduring Renewal. Another card I found while rifling through my collection to add possibilities to that was Penumbra Bobcat.

So, my totally inefficient multi-card combo would be Aluren+Enduring Renewal+Phyrexian Ghoul+Penumbra Bobcat+Grave Pact+Fecundity and then any number of the other value creatures you are bound to draw into. The Cadaver Imp will fetch you any creature you have to discard due to Enduring Renewal. The Penumbra Bobcat will produce tons of critters for your needs, like sac outlets or whatever. The main problem is that you'd need to have the Cadaver Imp out before kicking things off with Enduring Renewal as a safeguard to getting the creatures out of the graveyard. Perhaps someone can suggest some other alternatives to the Renewal's drawback? Any of the Eldrazi you already have in there would sub for the Bobcat, too.

If you have Zulaport Cutthroat on the table, you'll get the win that way. If not, you wipe the board and hit one of the players with a great big Phyrexian Ghoul. Creatures like Carrion Feeder and Mortician Beetle also benefit from that tactic. That's probably a bit off track of what you are wanting to do, though, but I thought I'd offer the suggestions up.

Cloud of Faeries opens up some other good combos you could look into as well. Tons of fun with Aluren!

Thanks for sharing this one. I may try to build it in the future.

Penumbra Bobcat

Safehold Elite

Havengul Runebinder, Notorious Throng, Penumbra Bobcat, Penumbra Kavu, Penumbra Spider, Penumbra Wurm, Rise from the Tides, Undead Alchemist, Guardian of Cloverdell, Ulvenwald Mysteries are all legal ways in a Temur commander deck to have Abzan Kin-Guard have lifelink. It really isn't worth running any of those cards, including the Kin-Guard, but they are legal.
