Interesting idea here, but I would perhaps remove the Pathrazer of Ulamog , Artisan of Kozilek, and some of the high mana creatures, since they don't really have any good purpose for this deck with their high mana cost... Not sure if you get to play them that often, and also you have few/alot cards that get use from the amount of cards/creatures in ur graveyard, So I would probably add more low mana green creatures with "tap for mana" abilities for example Avacyn's Pilgrim, Elvish Mystic there are ALOT elf 1mana cards with "tap for mana". If you build this deck more around Elves, then Priest of Titania / Joraga Treespeaker would be smart, which would also make u get those higher mana creatures on table and faster. Also Cradle of Vitality would be handy with the "gain life" cards you have, for example the Goldenglow Moth, theres a card which is kinda similiar to it --> Pride Guardian and a fun card to throw on it, After it/ or some of your creature blocks an high stat attacker... is to throw this Righteousness or Smite or some cards that make it undestroyable, I noticed that you probably want to keep this as Budget'ish deck so I suggested few cheap cards. Also would probably remove Oran-Rief Survivalist since you only have those 2 as "Ally". I would focus on building around something you have alot, for example those "gain life" cards, getting more cards that give alot value from gaining life. Since you're playing only against Black/White flying deck/or a blue mill deck, I would build this deck to counter those better, think on what card types ur weak against to, and/or try to counter those with something, Sorry for bad english,( oh and change the deck format to casual, since you dont have Standard legal cards) I hope I could help somehow :D, lemme know if you got anything more to ask about! Otherwise GL with the deck! And wreck dat guys decks

Thanks for the suggestion! I somehow have missed that card in my card search, that is strictly better than Pride Guardian .

I'd probably start by deciding which theme you want to pursue the most.
If you go more lifegain, increase copies of Ajani's Pridemate, Healer of the Pride, Felidar Sovereign, and Ajani's Mantra. Also consider Kemba's Skyguard, Pride Guardian, Sunbond, and Archangel of Thune.

Ugh, to do the rest, I am just going to drop this text:
Drop 2x Pride Guardian, all artifacts but one Spear of Heliod, 1x Ajani, Caller of the Pride, 3x Ajani's Sunstriker, 4x Ajani's Pridemate, and 3x Healer of the Pride (24 total Cards), add 3x Glorious Anthem, 4x Qasali Pridemage, and 4x Lightning Greaves, 4x Loam Lion, 4x Pride Sovereign, 1x more Fleecemane Lion, and 4x Swiftfoot Boots

Looks like fun.I hope you realize that fighting has nothing to do with combat. Meaning fighting with Pride Guardian doesn't gain you life because it is fighting not blocking. Same goes with Assault Formation you only assign COMBAT damage using toughness fighting is NON-COMBAT damage.
I think Dusk would be a good addition as it doesn't touch your stuff and the other half of the card can get all your creatures. Sight of the Scalelords is a good buff and Tower Defense is a finishing combat trick in this deck.
You might want to consider adding black to have access to Doran, the Siege Tower as well as all the awesome removal black has.
Hope this helps.

Way to many 1 Drops. Than i would reduce the deck to 60 cards. Most of it would be Lands. Maybe some editing with the cards in the deck, except for one:
Planeswalker (2):2x Elspeth, Sun's Champion
Give it a try, have fun ;)

ACDAMAN I completely agree with you when it comes to cutting Ajani and Brave the Elements. What's a cat deck without Ajani right? Well whenever I draw him, I always find myself wishing I drew something else. He's great for flavor, but besides that I don't think he's a necessary component. Sometimes multiple copies of Brave the Elements flood my hand when I only really need one at a time, but I only reduced it to two since I love that card and it hits all of my creatures except for Wild Nacatl. When it comes to Collected Company, I am really conflicted about it. Check out my update for a thorough explanation, but I really appreciate your input.
BrandonJamesCAC Great suggestions, as always haha. Thank you for bringing both Selfless Spirit and Serra Avenger to my attention. Unfortunately they do not fit the cat theme I'm going for, but I may try to include them. I especially like Selfless Spirit, he seems like incredible utility for the deck. As for Steppe Lynx, I find it to be a bit underwhelming at times. It can be a very effective beater, occasionally becoming a 4/5 body on turns that I crack a fetch but otherwise it's a 0/1 and I only look at that as a chump blocker that can die off really easily. I run Pride Guardian over Lynx because it proves to be more sustainable as a defender with lifegain.
