Things to cut:
2 weeks ago
Thanks MegaMatt13. Will digest and figure out what to cut to get them in.
Berserk has been in and out, I thought the same about the removal aspect of it too which is cool, especially if it's attacking an opponent in a Multi-Player pod. Have to find room.
Pride of Lions I keep going back and forth on, the idea is to tutor trample, Green Sun's Zenith into Rhonas the Indomitable or Steelshaper's Gift into Loxodon Warhammer, or Arahbo, Roar of the World last ability... so Trample overcomes all but the toughness of the blocker anyway, where Pride of Lions does that extra damage, but then gets killed probably without actually killing his blocker either (Because if the blocker can't kill him why did they block him in the first place, and he does no damage to the blocker). He's good, should find something to out for him.
Metallic Mimic is really borderline, I think about his interaction with Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Kemba, Kha Regent, Pride Sovereign + Regal Caracal (Especially for my Felidar Sovereign win-con), Ajani, Caller of the Pride. I originally had more, like White Sun's Zenith and some others, but there are less. Metallic Mimic on his own isn't that exciting 2/1 for . He's definitely high on the cut list.
Puresteel Paladin + Leonin Shikari makes Eminence and Lightning Greaves a viable option together, but its janky. I cut Sword of Light and Shadow and Sword of Feast and Famine already because of the same issues. It's really the haste more than the protection I want anyway since Selsnya is quite limited for haste.
Thanks for the feedback, MUCH appreciated.

Thank you for the fast response
So it would be a little combo if you have both Leonin Shikari and Puresteel Paladin (or lots of mana) out. But i guess it's too gimmicky and Balan, Wandering Knight or any other double striker can do the same job.

Oops forgot a couple of big cards that i can add in

I could see that. Ideally we don't want to play the Armor until we have something that bypasses the equip costs like Sigarda's Aid, Hammer of Nazahn, Puresteel Paladin, or Balan, Wandering Knight. Honestly, the cost of the card doesn't bother me much, and it's effects put it up there as my go-to "finisher." I'll probably switch out Masterwork of Ingenuity with Trepanation Blade at least to test it out and see what happens.
I'm avoiding most auras due mostly to the inability to tutor them, or the lack of interactions with other Equipment Matters cards, and I just hate when they fall off my creatures and can't reuse them like I can equipment. If I was going with auras I'd probably throw stuff in like Eldrazi Conscription, but that is definitely a card that works with my Felidar Sovereign wincon and the P/T buff is very satisfying! Great suggestion, but I don't know what I'd remove to try to force it in.

@RingoDingo92: Thanks for your comment and upvote! You're right, I first wanted to keep this a pure Cats deck but the benefits Stoneforge Mystic and Puresteel Paladin bring in are just too great. I can see the point in choosing Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith, but have had good games playing Arahbo, Roar of the World. In my experience, the - basically - unconditional +3/+3 each attack phase annoys players so hard early that it can be used as a tool to exert influence on others. And doubling your (presumably well equipped) attacker's power and toughness in the lategame leads to quite some giggles.
The deck ist very weak to artifact hate and shouldn't be seen as competitive in any way. My friends and I are keeping this kind of semi-competitive though and it seems well suited for that environment.

As a general rule I am still trying to stick as hard as possible to the kitty theme rather than swap out cats for better equipment deck creatures. Things like Stoneforge Mystic, Puresteel Paladin, Sun Titan, etc. are obviously briliant cards for this deck but once I start putting them in in place of cats I feel like I'm not running a cat tribal deck any more and I might as well just replace Arahbo with Sram :)
However the Bloodforged Battle-Axe is definitely on my radar, as is Open the Armory as I totally forgot it exists. From my very limited playtesting as well I can see that Hexproof is a major boon here for keeping that voltron kitty alive so Whispersilk Cloak is being seriously considered as well (as is Mask of Avacyn as a cheaper alternative).
Regarding the Lost Leonin - this is also on my radar, and I have one sitting next to me. I'm just not sure if I want to go through the Infect route or not.... If I did put it in I would also consider Grafted Exoskeleton too and it may end up being what is used with the tutors every game. I imagine it draws quite a lot of hate though....
