Qasali Pridemage Discussion

It seems strong - though with such an investment in creatures have you considered Natural Order ? I know it only gets a green creature, but you've a slew of reasonable targets.
Your lack of hatebears (selesnya's best trait) makes me believe you should consider more speed in your combo. Cutting mikokoro for Elvish Spirit Guide is a good example. Another would be including Summoner's Pact to find a combo piece.
My last advice is only that I'd recommend leyline of sanctity as a meta dependent option. Most cEDH decks use similar wins at the moment like by abusing aetherflux, or walking ballista, etc. So it can be a cheeky include.

EDIT- Have adjusted the sideboard a bit against burn, as well as cutting a Loxodon Smiter, a Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Tarmagoyf, and the main Qasali Pridemage in favor of 2 Kird Ape, another Experiment One and another Bloodbraid Elf. I'm thinking I could lose a single Path to Exile for a Lightning Helix and if need be, 3 cmc for 3 damage and 3 life gained might not be so bad... Gonna give it a run at fnm and then I'll be attempting my first SCG Open this weekend, so more updates to come I'm sure.

Last_Laugh Teferis and Heroic Intervention are options for making the Armageddon effects onesided which is nice but I can operate under those using Sisay to pull more lands anyways. Teferi however I would easily consider because it's such a good all around card, especially if there are turns decks in your meta.
I don't run Shalai because she doesn't do enough to justify her cost. Either the deck goes fast wins early where I can't afford to cast her or switches to stax and she's not necessary when I am pulling out pieces like Linvala or Hokori to shut down opponents instead.
As for Aura Shards I'm not actually playing many creatures so it would be ebtter to put Qasali Pridemage in instead.
SamsWrath I don't think it matters which once you start the combo. If you get to that point the game is over. Sisay would've been killed long before you started the Paradonx chain.

Why does everyone knock on Heroes' Reunion?
That is a fair question, let me try and answer it. In the beginning a very smart man called Richard Garfield created a game called Magic the Gathering. He wanted to have a dependable cycle of cards, something that showed each colour philosophy, as it was. He created the boon cycle, each card did something with the number 3: Lightning Bolt, Giant Growth, Ancestral Recall, Dark Ritual and Healing Salve. The game was in its infancy and this all seemed reasonable enough... Events prove otherwise. Healing Salve is by far the worst of the 5 cards, Ancestral Recall and Dark Ritual are downright broken, Lightning Bolt is too strong for standard, Giant Growth is fair. So why is everyone down on Heroes' Reunion, it can't even prevent 7 damage, it's a less useful Healing Salve.
"Bolt the bird", is a phrase nearly as old as Magic itself, what it means is that you can't rely on your ramp creature surviving past the turn you play it. If it's a choice between killing Birds of Paradise and Sacred Cat any experienced player kills the bird.
Ramp isn't a reason to use inefficient cards, Fleecemane Lion is the perfect card to use with ramp, you can play it as an early threat, then make it a near irremovable beast once it's monstrous. The same is true of Adorned Pouncer, but If I wanted to abuse Anointed Procession, I'd also run Honored Hydra and Advent of the Wurm too, building a Procession deck, not a tribal cat one. On a similar note, most of the time you play Qasali Ambusher for free and Qasali Pridemage is a removal spell on a body...

Your playing an Tribal Aggro deck, so speed is important, that means that Vanquisher's Banner, is far too slow as is Creeping Renaissance. Metallic Mimic is a better choice for providing an extra boost to your cats. As to the cats themselves, no Loam Lion, Wild Nacatl or Steppe Lynx to provide early pressure, seems wrong. Ajani's Pridemate is'n't good in this deck, because Heroes' Reunion has no place in an aggro deck. Any of Fleecemane Lion, Qasali Pridemage, Prowling Serpopard, Brimaz, King of Oreskos or Qasali Ambusher would make more sense.
In short, play more 1 drops and take advantage of the card pool modern offers. Hope this helps, good luck with your deck.

thank you for taking a look at my deck and for your comment. I think that I do not need Fragmentize in sideboard because I already have Qasali Pridemage in main board. Gaddock Teeg is definitely a great card but on the other hand it is quite expensive. I try to keep the deck budget friendly so I will not add this card. Narnam Renegade and Pelt Collector seem very interesting. I will consider adding them to main board.

It looks pretty good to me. How fast is the deck? How long does it take to get moving? It looks to me like it could use more ramp, and I would choose to use some mana dorks for it. Birds of Paradise, Llanowar Elves, etc would be useful, I think. A card like Cryptolith Rite would turn all your creatures into mana dorks, which might be more what this deck wants to do. Reclamation Sage might be better than Qasali Pridemage, but you'd have to try it out to see. Shield of the Oversoul and Shielded by Faith might be cuttable; they are good enchantments, but they don't fit with your equipment theme. More removal, like Beast Within, might be worth adding.
Like I said, it looks really good, so its hard to make decent suggestions, but I hope they give you some thought.
