Qasali Slingers Discussion

Thanks for your upvote and suggestions.
First, the Wild Nacatl seems strong, when you are on the play, play a Temple Garden , and the Wild Nacatl , you'll have a 3/3 on the board before your opponent even draws. A Second turn Fleecemane Lion or Adorned Pouncer with a third round King of the Pride is very nice, he needs to have some removal..
Any other sideboard suggestions?

Some new updates of the deck:
- Jedit Ojanen of Efrava : too slow, often too small in the late game to be effective
- Abundance : It was either this card, Ajani, Strength of the Pride or Stalking Tiger , and both of the latter had only just been added. Abundance is a nice combo with Sylvan Library , but it's too difficult to assemble without more enchantment searching effect.
- Kemba, Kha Regent : With only 6 pieces of equipment, this isn't the best option anymore. In the original commander deck where 14 were available, there is a stronger case, but I've felt this as being an increasingly underwhelming draw.
- Saltcrusted Steppe : Very underwhelming as a storage land in this build, it feels like an easy cut.
The new hotness:
- Felidar Guardian : This has some synergies with the ETBs of other cats such as Regal Caracal and Qasali Slingers , but otherwise it's just another cat body.
- Sword of Feast and Famine : A Bear Umbra effect that can at least benefit from Hammer of Nazahn .
- Enlightened Tutor : An easy way to fetch out a Sol Ring early game or Mirari's Wake late game to ramp you into Arahbo, Roar of the World and pay for attacking triggers or to pay for a big Finale of Devastation .
- Gavony Township : Had been on the radar a long time, but only had access to one once another deck was deconstructed.

I've no list but there are some neat cats to include:
Qasali Pridemage , Leonin Warleader , Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist , Regal Caracal , Jazal Goldmane , Qasali Slingers , Temur Sabertooth , Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Felidar Sovereign , Nacatl War-Pride , Jareth, Leonine Titan and Fleecemane Lion .
I know some of these came in the deck or are really obvious but the seem to be among the better ones, i think.

Mirari's Wake and Settle the Wreckage are both good cards though Settle does not count as a board wipe since it only hits the attacking creatures of a single player. I'd still look into some wraths and some targeted enchantment/artifact removal.
Regarding some of your changes, I don't know if Ajani's Aid is spectacular. It's mainly designed for use in the planeswalker deck but only prevents damage from a single creature and EDH often has multiple problem creatures at a time. Also, I would ABSOLUTELY remove Steely Resolve. It would give all of your cats shroud and render them untargetable by YOU with things like "Put a +1/+1 counter of each of up to 2 target creatures". While that's a really cool card that I've not seen before, you definitely don't want that in this particular deck. The comparable hexproof card is Privileged Position I believe.
Rhonas' Monument only has 8 targets so it's not as good currently as Oketra's. If you add a few more green cats like Mirri, Cat Warrior, Qasali Slingers (also can be removal), or Generous Stray (meh stats but card draw and look at that flavor text :3) then it would be more worth it. Additionally, take a look at the CMCs of your creatures. Urza's Incubator doesn't help as much as you'd think because very few of the cats actually have 2+ generic mana symbols that could be reduced. I'd remove it for that reason (though normally you'd think it'd be awesome).
Regarding Trostani and populate. I personally don't love populate. And this is coming from someone with a Trostani deck (Trostani, Sisay's Legacy). Populate just lets you copy a single token. The goal of this deck seems to be to make lots of small tokens rather than a few big tokens making populate less attractive.
Oh, I just noticed you have Raksha Golden Cub but only two equipments. I think that makes him one of the weaker cats in the deck since you're not going to cat-equipment route, you're going the cat-token route. Because of that, he's just a 7 mana 3/4 and that's not really great.

Do you have a specific budget in mind, Under $40, Under $50?
Riptide Replicator seems really awful, it requires for a cat, so your hoping it's at least 5/5 or more, which means the initial cost is =5 + = . That's a terrible conversion. I understand you want to build your board position since your cats pump each other, but Riptide Replicator is not the way to go.
Stir the Pride is way too high a CMC for it's modular (or Entwine) abilities. I would take that one out.
Qasali Slingers is a nice control for Artifacts and Enchantments, plus hes a 3/5 reach.
Balan, Wandering Knight might consider, but with only 13 equipment targets, understand why he's not in there.
Jazal Goldmane might be a bit better, because he's 4/4 first strike, but he can pump all the horde of cats.
Beastmaster Ascension feels like 100% necessary in this, to pump all your 1/1 token cats. I think this will be a primary goal for winning in this budget format.
Crown of Vigor is not every exciting a 1-shot +1/+1, with a static +1/+1 for 1 creature, not fantastic.
Mask of Memory might help with the draw as well.
Hungry Lynx, originally I thought this guy would be amazing, but all he does is create problems (deathtouch rats), and I've never had him successfully pump my cats before being removed. I took him out, mechanic didn't work.
Uktabi Wildcats, this guy only worthwhile if you have 5 Forest, remember, Tranquil Expanse / Selesnya Sanctuary are not forest unless they say "Forest" on them, so with a max size of 11, he's rarely going to be a 5, so no other abilities, not worth the CMC .
Whitemane Lion combos infinite with lost of , but enablers might not work in the budget. There is Infinite creature (several) enablers, Infinite Ramp enablers, etc. Him and Fleetfoot Panther run the show. Could be an interesting way to get some combo going, not sure how combos are viewed in your budget pod.
Lost Leonin can also put some infect pressure on people, but without support (like Silverblade Paladin/Ajani, Caller of the Pride/that white enchantment that gives 1 creature double strike/etc to make him a single hit kill. He's still a 2 hit-Eminence win-con though. Unless no infect allowed, he will eliminate players just with Eminence on occasion. If you can Grappling Hook him or enable doublestrike elsewise (like Raksha Golden Cub). Often he comes out early enough. It's my initial strategy in my Arahbo, Roar of the World but I use mass-creature tutor.

Also, you have to consider how many color symbols of each color are required, how many keyworded abilities and how those exact abilities affect play.
Not to mention, you should think of how Mana cost plays into it. In a tri color commander deck with Gigantosaurus, Qasali Slingers and approximately 35 lands (12 of which tap for G), for example, the odds of you hitting 5 lands of any color in your by your 12th card is around 66%, while getting 5 green lands is actually around 2%. Meaning it's way easier to cast Qasali Slingers and use their ability, although their stats are way lower.
But let's say you're playing a mono green deck with 35 forests, Elvish Archdruid and Gigantosaurus too. The probability that you'll get Elvish Archdruid out by turn 3 is around 86% while the possibility you'll get Gigantosaurus out turn 5 is about the same. So, it's way easier getting a 3 drop on time is way higher than getting a 5 drop. Meaning that the 3 mana difference is also super affective in how long it might take to get the card out (granted, if you don't draw things that make that probability more likely).

Are any of the degenerate combos cat tribal specific. I'm trying to find some cat-centric combos for my Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH Deck but haven't found anything good yet.
All I've been able to come-up with so far, but are really janky are:
Temur Sabertooth + Karametra's Acolyte + Swiftfoot Boots + 4 Devotion | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or + 1 Devotion Infinite Mana. No clue what I would do with this mana even if I made it.
Cryptolith Rite + Leonin Battlemage + Oketra's Monument + Whitemane Lion | Infinite 1/1 Warrior Tokens. Who doesn't love 4-card combos that involve 2 cats to make 1/1 warriors that don't even have haste. On the plus side Oketra's Monument looks cat-ish.
Aluren + Fleetfoot Panther or Whitemane Lion | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. Aluren terrifies me, none of the cats are ultimately good on their own either.
Changeling Hero + Changeling Titan | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. They may not look like cats but they are... I guess.
Leonin Relic-Warder + Oblivion Ring or Journey to Nowhere + Sun Titan or Karmic Guide or Reveillark + Greater Good | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. Soon as you say Sun Titan or Karmic Guide or Reveillark which is Saffi Eriksdotter so why would I waste time with Cats.
If you have anything please let me know!
Whats your Tooth and Nail combo, any cats?
Any help very much appreciated.
