Cool deck! Here are some cards to consider:
Brimaz, King of Oreskos: Probably one of the best cats in modern. For 3 mana you get a solid 3/4 cat that survives Lightning Bolt, has vigilance and spawns a cat token every time he attacks or blocks. These cat tokens work really well with Pride Sovereign!
Qasali Ambusher: 2/3 cat that can be cast for 0 mana and with flash, what more to say?
Path to Exile: The best removal spell in modern in my opinion. It can take care of all sorts of threats modern players throw at you (Death's Shadow, Tarmogoyf,...) and, added bonus, it depicts a cat :)

If you focus more on the cats, you have Ajani's Pridemate, Pride Sovereign, Felidar Sovereign, Ajani's Welcome and more. Ajani cats are particularly strong in standard at the moment, see M19M Selesnya Cats and 19 white kittens and these decks are great fun to play.

I'm planning on using cloudshift and ghostly flicker to protect my soul warden and my serene steward. I agree with regal caracal though, I could replace it with Pride Sovereign and put in more lands similar to survivor's encampment.

Hey, looks great, one of the best Standard Cat decks I have seen on TappedOut, nice work. Like the additions of Mentor and Destiny.
I think mono white is the way to go. Selesnya doesn't give you enough to warrant a much worse manabase. Blossoming Defense is the only reason I would play green, but it requires Forests in the manabase. Pride Sovereign is the another reason to play green, but I think both Mentor and Destiny are better three drops here. Destiny an early game anthem to fight Chainwhirler and Mentor for draw.
Consider Prepare? It's an instant combat trick that gives the creature lifelink, nice with Pridemate. Having a trick is helpful when facing Goblin Chainwhirler since he brick walls with first strike the entire attacking Cats strategy until you have removal, Warleader or a big enough Pridemate to break through. You can cast Prepare without having to also cast Fight. Fight can just stay in the graveyard until you want to use it. Splash 4x Sunpetal Grove for Fight if you want to, but it's honestly not even needed.
Another option that's only white is Moment of Triumph. Instant, only one mana and you gain 2 life. More likely to gain life with Triumph because the creature doesn't have to do damage in combat like with Prepare, but Prepare can gain a ton more life than Triumph if the creature gets to do damage. One mana makes Triumph more consistent to save a creature from Chainwhirler's ETB ability before you can get Destiny into play. It's much easier to leave up one mana for a trick than two.
Leonin Vanguard is very lackluster even with Pridemate I suggest cutting one or more for at least a fourth Warleader and a third Mentor. I would suggest to add another Ajani, but because of budget that's probably not an option.
Pridmate, Warleader and Mentor is a three creature army, draw engine, life engine. Each Cat that ETB when Warleader attacks you can pay one mana to draw a card as well as gain life in combat which pumps Pridemate. These three creatures and Destiny is the direction I think you should go. They curve into each other and having a Warleader and Mentor in play makes it okay to attack with a Warleader even if it's going to die. Warleader is still making two Cats which you can pay mana to draw two cards because of Mentor.
For the sideboard consider Ajani Unyielding? This Ajani is very underrated. His +2 ability is very good with Cats because it allows to reveal any number of them as well as Destiny, Mentor, Cast Out, Seal Away, other Ajani in the top three cards and put them into your hand. He's also repeatable exile creature removal, that's very helpful.
Good luck at FNM.

I think that G/W life gain cats is the way to go, since you it has a great synergy, and it has useful cards like Adorned Pouncer and Pride Sovereign. You don't have to have all cats, like some life gain cards such as Victory's Herald support these big time.

Huatli is better than Shalai as commander me thinks.
Amoncats (amonketh cats) slot right into it and you get to play all of 's mana accelaration and token genration.
