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.

You definitely need more card draw Elemental Bond, Mouth / Feed, Skullclamp, Deathreap Ritual and Culling Dais would be my card engines of choice. With eight of them in the deck you should be able to have one most of the time.

Nice deck! The name alone is fantastic lol. Check out my own edh-cat-deck here: WonderCats. There are a couple cards that I think are auto-include for this deck, yet are glaringly absent. Sigarda's Aid is AMAZING for any Voltron deck. Chameleon Colossus is technically a "Cat," & his pump ability is crazy with Arahbo's Eminence ability, so I am curious why you cut him out. soul22 & Winterblast: I can see why Fleecemane Lion didn't make the cut, but I've found him to be a very nice body when going Voltron- expensive CMC, but I basically think of him as a 7-mana Indestructible, Hexproof 7/7, which is pretty badass when you throw a couple things on him, such as Fireshrieker, Quietus Spike, Prowler's Helm, & Sword of Fire and Ice, lol. I personally don't think Watchers of the Dead is strong enough to make the cut- his ability lets them keep the important stuff in their graveyard. Scavenging Ooze seems better, imo, since it actually targets the problem. I would also put Aura Shards in there, since there are enough non-cats to be even better than Qasali Slingers in your deck, imo, though I run both. Another sweet Voltron guy is Stonehewer Giant. I prefer him over Stoneforge Mystic for edh. Also, what happened to your ramp? Cultivate/Kodama's Reach got cut? Even with the artifact "ramp," it seems very low, since you only have 30 lands. Another missing piece is card draw: I personally like Hunter's Insight with Arahbo. A game-ending spell in my deck that I absolutely LOVE top-decking is Genesis Wave. I found Sacred Cat to be underwhelming in actual play. Skyhunter Prowler is a flying vigilant 4/6 on the attack, and a 1/3 on defense, & I have found his 2 keyword abilities to be very very good when he is Voltron'd-up. I also cut Sword of Feast and Famine & Sword of Light and Shadow from my deck; the protection was too problematic, since it made the Eminence ability useless, and also prevented stuff like Duelist's Heritage & even pumps such as your Phytoburst/Berserk. Anyways, just some suggestions- good luck!

Hi, first of all, I like the deck.
Maybe you could add some more utility creatures, because your primary wincon is to win via commander dmg and hence you do not necessarily need many other threats. What about Solemn Simulacrum, Acidic Slime, Qasali Slingers, Uktabi Orangutan, Eternal Witness, Wood Elves, Elvish Visionary, Fauna Shaman, Terastodon. While not supporting your +1/+1-counter-plan, they really give your game a lot of additional value and options and still help to get out Ghalta, Primal Hunger.

I wouldn't say it's the runt of the litter so much. You just have to pick a theme. The three generals pretty much tell you exactly how to play the deck in one of three ways, so it's a matter of deciding which you like better and swapping out less helpful cards for better ones.
I chose to stay with Arahbo, Roar of the World but I'm sticking with the Equipment theme. It's mostly still tribal with the inclusion of guys like Stoneforge Mystic and Puresteel Paladin, as well as some specific tutors. I could just as easily chose Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith as my commander instead, but I like Arahbo's free Giant Growth.
But since you have Mirri as the lead, she doesn't lock you into a tribal strategy, so you can totally drop in token makers like Mycoloth (who just loves all the Ajani planeswalkers), Rhys the Redeemed, and the like. Honestly at that point I'd just rather run Rhys as the commander though.
Arahbo and Nazahn provide better utility overall, I think, unless you want to try to Crop Rotation a Maze of Ith with Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist as your go-to combo. But that's my biggest suggestion if you want to remain tribal.
On that note, I recommend Fleetfoot Panther and Sabertooth Nishoba. The former has flash and can either save a creature, let you reuse an ETB, or even bounce itself for a 3cmc removal when paired with Qasali Slingers or Aura Shards. The latter is just a good beatstick with good evasion - a bit lesser known. Also, a monsterous Fleecemane Lion equipped with Worldslayer has won me nearly all my matches.
Anyway, my deck has served me well, so feel free to check it out for ideas if you want.

So first off this is a deck designed to be using very few creatures at a time. In general we're holding cats in our hand while the one on the field is clawing away. It's not meant to wide, and does simply so we can keep swinging. Therefore, we have to worry about Edicts and sac effects. But we also bounce back from removal easily.
Assault Suit is there mainly due to the Can't be Sacrificed clause. It has the added bonus of giving my biggest voltron to my opponents for them to use against each other.
Fleetfoot Panther combos with Qasali Slingers or Aura Shards by bouncing itself. It can also let me reuse the ETB effects of Nazahn or Stoneforge Mystic. Lastly, if I need to bounce a creature to save it from dying, Pather's flash lets me do that. He's just a better cat than others out there.
Sabertooth Nishoba is nothing more than a finisher, and of the 6 CMC finishers out there I feel he's better than most. Also, I've had him since his release and never used him. Now I finally get to, and isn't that really what EDH is all about?
I run Skyhunter Skirmisher, which has evasion. It may be missing the Embalm, but I think the flying makes it better.

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!

Spirits I'll just start where I left off: Oreskos Explorer seemed to make sense when I was building the deck, in that it's a form of land searching that Arahbo can buff, and while I have actually used it's ability successfully a few times, I can't help but think that now that some other unconditional ramp spell would be more effective.
I quite like Sylvan Reclamation personally, partially due to the land cycling. Aura Shards and by extension, Qasali Slingers do attract quite a bit of hate and from experience don't last very long so it useful in that sense as well. I am pretty light on creature removal though as a result.
I won't lie, the idea of running Rhonas as actually hugely attractive to me, used him in modern a lot and he's such a powerful card. Great idea, I'll definitely look at putting him in somewhere. Same goes for Sylvan Library.
Thanks for the upvote! I'll definitely check your deck out. I get the impression that you're trying to build a far better one than I am but I'll try be of some use.
