Prowling Serpopard Discussion
3 days ago
Hey, thanks for the comment! I can tell you that I originally played Resilient Khenra and Channeler Initiate but found Merfolk Branchwalker and Drover of the Mighty to be far, far superior. Regarding Prowling Serpopard, I am heavily considering giving it a try in the board, but I've been liking Lifecrafter's Bestiary so much as my anti-control card. Regarding Rishkar, Peema Renegade I originally ran 2 of him and 3-4 Verdurous Gearhulk, but it wasn't as good as going more dino-centric. Lastly, I don't think Shapers' Sanctuary is worth the 1-drop spot, especially going more dino, because Commune with Dinosaurs is just an excellent t1 play.

I just went 2-1 at standard showdown with mono green stompy. Only match I lost was on 3rd game mana screw to sultai energy/taker/scarab god thing.
I really had no business winning against the Approach of the Second Sun deck i played in my third match. He dominated me the first game countering everything i played. Second game he somehow ran out of gas before he could find his wincon and couldn't attack or block with his kefnet. Game 3 he was stuck on three mana that didn't allow him to cast Settle the Wreckage. I chalk it up to luck entirely.
The deck I run is a very different from yours but we are trying to achieve the same things. I run 4 Shapers' Sanctuary main since the deck doesn't have a solid one drop. Its been the difference maker in a lot of games. Particularly Energy decks and red decks that target heavily. In matchups like approach its easily sided out. Prowling Serpopard is the only thing that can put me ahead in that matchup honestly... So...many...counterspells.
I ran Resilient Khenra and Channeler Initiate as my two drops but there were a lot of games when I would end up with the khenra and Rishkar, Peema Renegade as the only creatures in my hand with nothing on the board and it was frustrating when I knew I couldn't get the bonus off one of em. Im thinking of swapping the khenra for Merfolk Branchwalker and was wondering how its played for you?

Prowling Serpopard wasn't in the prebuild but I did consider it. I usually don't run counter spell protection simply because it doesn't come up a lot in large games. If I did more 1v1 I would consider it.
I didn't run a lot of enchantments or aura's like Duelist's Heritage to try to keep my equipment synergy going smoothly with the exception of Bear Umbra because I own one and I don't have a Sword of Feast and Famine
As far as Abundance goes I just use it to prevent myself from drawing land later game mostly which can be handy. Early game it usually isn't practical to play it for 4 unless something has gone very wrong in my mana base.

What i think is that you need to find the right balance of utility and power
Also Control match up seems kinda weak as I'm not swarming with creatures maybe Prowling Serpopard anti control and good power to cmc ratio

Posting this Cats that don't suck list to research later, as MegaMatt13 commented, Pride Sovereign is a little weak, plus I find that 24 cats is a little short, although I've won games without playing a cat Stonehewer Giant + Puresteel Paladin + Grafted Exoskeleton.
I excluded many aggro cats because I feel that's not the right way to win in a multi-player format.
I'm sure I've missed some cats. I also have added some cats that do suck, but evaluating combos with them.
Adorned Pouncer, Ajani's Pridemate, Ajani's Sunstriker, Felidar Cub, Fleecemane Lion, Hungry Lynx, Initiate's Companion, Leonin Arbiter, Leonin Relic-Warder, Leonin Shikari, Lost Leonin, Metallic Mimic, Qasali Pridemage, Scrounging Bandar, Sunspear Shikari, Whitemane Lion
Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Fleetfoot Panther, Kemba, Kha Regent, Mirri, Cat Warrior, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist, Mirror Entity, Pride Sovereign, Prowling Serpopard, Qasali Ambusher, Skyhunter Skirmisher, Stalking Leonin
Please recommend any cats i've missed!

Have you thought about Infect Lost Leonin, Triumph of the Hordes, Duelist's Heritage, Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Berserk, Eladamri's Call, Grafted Exoskeleton, Worldly Tutor, etc. as a possible win-con. I find on occasion I can get Turn 3 or Turn 4 infect killing pretty regularily.
Prowling Serpopard is a 4 power for CMC3 cat, with 2 great abilities, I would run him for tempo and for his awesomness.
See Brimaz, King of Oreskos in your maybeboard, he's good, 3/4 Vigilance for CMC3 plus procs vigilance cats, especially handy with a Triumph of the Hordes. He lacks true synergy with the deck, but he a strong cat nevertheless.
Angel of Sanctions feels out of place, but I get your looking for the removal, I wouldn't go that route though. Archangel of Thune combos with Spike Feeder! Spike Feeder isn't that awesome on his own but also has limited synergy with Felidar Sovereign as well. If you run creature Tutors makes it viable.
With only 2 Aura spells (1 really if you ignore Song of the Dryads), Puresteel Paladin feels better than Sram, Senior Edificer and can help with your bundles of Equipment, or both maybe! Maybe a Bloodforged Battle-Axe too since you have them? No Rancor?

There are some awesome cats you should look at, Regal Caracal gives all cats +1/+1 and Lifelink, plus he ETB's with two 1/1 cats. Adorned Pouncer has build in Double Strike so with Eminence he can be devastating. Prowling Serpopard is 4 power for CMC3 with a couple nice abilities. Brimaz, King of Oreskos is less synergy, but a good low CMC vigilance cat that alsp procs cat tokens.
Curse of Bounty should go, its just way to random/inconsequential. I think Wing Shards with its CMC3 and potential to miss the target you really need isn't that great. Crushing Vines is too high a CMC for it's limited restrictive abilities. Relic Crush way too expensive in my opinion, throw in an Aura Shards.
Rhonas the Indomitable is awesome, 5/5 deathtouch indestructible for CMC3 and can attack with ANY cat + eminence trigger!
Sylvan Library is high life cost, but can prevent stalling in many cases. +1.

I see you took Prowling Serpopard out? I enjoy that guy, not only is he ridiculous looking, but is 4 power for CMC3 with 2 great abilities that synergy with the deck.
Brimaz, King of Oreskos doesn't have the same level of synergy, but hes just a really good Vigilance cat that procs more cats, protection from Sacrifice and can get a horde with something like Triumph of the Hordes.
Puresteel Paladin pairs well with Bloodforged Battle-Axe and is good on his own. Duelist's Heritage is a cheaper Fireshrieker, but both would pair well with Lost Leonin and the Eminence triggered ability.
Have you found Abundance to be any good? Does it pull the solution you need?
Highly recommend Rhonas the Indomitable, 5/5 Deathtouch Indestructible for CMC3 and he can Attack as long as you have ANY cat + Eminence tigger. +1.
