Pride Sovereign Discussion

I ended up only doing 2 Prepare / Fight in the deck and removed 1 Prowling Serpopard and 1 Nature's Way from the Mainboard. The Pride Sovereign+Exert+Prepare works about just as good as the Adorned Pouncer+Appeal combo to get things moving towards generating a lot of damage. I can also stack Appeal to the Pride Sovereign as well to really deal some damage.
I also moved 1 Plains to the mainboard and moved a Forest to the sideboard to help with the mana curve a little. With my Sideboard being primarily White, I had to take into consideration that I may need additional plains in the Sideboard to off-set the cards and make it work to my advantage rather than to hinder me.
So far so good.

There's the new Cat Avatar coming about. He's a catlord and he's White/Green so you can run Pride Sovereign, Fleecemane Lion,Jedit Ojanen of Efrava, Loam Lion + whatever else comes out in the commander set. So maybe look at green cats for some additions too, plus just good green spells that would fit, especially with tokens and lifegain.

TMBRLZ I agree with the suggestion of Eldritch Evolution would probably run more reliably than Uncage. However making this deck I aimed to make it rotation-proof, so nothing before kaladesh. At one point I tried running Pride Sovereign as a three drop instead of the Air Dwarf dude as a token generator, but I often found it just sitting there not providing much pressure or not finding many opportunities to exert, as I usually kept the mana to protect Rhonas or cast the hydra when I had to. Not to mention the cat itself provided no keywords for the Chimera.

NobleGhost117 - Thanks for the advice!
I do feel a little light on lifegain when you think about the Crested Sunmare trigger, I do agree with you on that; however, consider the following factors:
Regal Caracal gives ALL cats lifelink, and the tokens generated with Pride Sovereign already has lifelink out of the gate, which means that by the time you actually have enough mana to slap Crested Sunmare unto the board, you should have more than plenty cats with lifelink to garuentee you a couple of horse-triggers. I am more than willing to trade a few 1/1 cat-tokens badly to gain 5/5 horse-tokens. ;)
The horse is not our STRICT wincondition, just a very hard-to-deal-with lategame creature that generates a high amount of threats in unison with Anointed Procession. If you can then the following turn slam down Overcome, victory is all but asured.
There are also some downsides to the horse, that I am glad that you pointed out:
We wont always have the lifegain to trigger it, and then it just seems like a bit anemic 5/5 for 5.Also, do we really want to be slamming a horse down on turn 5 when we could potentially just close the game out with an Overcome instead?
The horse is probably the weakest card in the lategame right now, I realise that. To be honest, its mostly there because... Well, I think it's a cool card, and I love to imagine the kitties riding into battle on big-ass horses. xD
I really need to playtest this deck.

I'm on the fence on using Prepare. Sure you get +2/+2 and lifelink. and a untap for Pride Sovereign which does help, but it isn't reliable for the aftermath ability of Fight which costs 4 mana and could kill your creature if your opponent has an instant within hand.
Nature's Way too many applies more answers. One you can kill a ground or flying creature without having to worry about losing your own creature in the process. You also get Trample and Vigilance which would already stack with Appeal / Authority.
I'll agree Prepare would work better with Pride Sovereign, but in standard this is a matter of speed when it comes to beating your opponent especially with the control and mill decks out right now. Adorned Pouncer with it's Double Strike is the better, cheaper, faster alternative to crush your opponents with. Pride Sovereign is more of a blocker, token generator, and source to imped your opponents progress.

Entomo - You're totally right, forgive me - I just misread it and thought it only was a land that Initiate's Companion could untap. But yes, using it on a Pride Sovereign is certainly an interesting idea....
It might be feasible to move Cast Out to the sideboard (it has more targets than "Fight" or Nature's Way) to make room for Prepare / Fight. The thing I like about Nature's Way though is your own creature doesn't take any damage from it. I will have to see if it's possible (and worthwhile) to juggle some of the numbers to fit it in.

was thinking, more of untapping Pride Sovereign as the selling point, and also tuning for more aggro. pouncer is great value but hes kinda slow and I have been really dissapointed by his performance before he is eternalized, while the companion has 3 power and can tangle, plus can do tricks.
Prepare / Fight over Nature's Way AND Cast Out. it does more stuff and is never dead. Again, moving towards more aggro. and the lifelink will help in a race.
