Qasali Slingers Discussion

Bxbx on Ghalta, SUPER SMASH BOI - under $90

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.

I don't run Sylvan Library, and Mirri's Guile is better but I don't have that either, lol.

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.

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

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.

Loam Lion, Sacred Cat, Trained Caracal, Wily Bandar

CMC2

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

CMC3

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

CMC4

Ajani's Chosen, Alms Collector, Balan, Wandering Knight, Chameleon Colossus, Felidar Guardian, Jazal Goldmane, Leonin Abunas, Leonin Battlemage, Seht's Tiger, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Temur Sabertooth

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.

Finally, I looked into it further and it seems that you're correct about what you're saying regarding Howling Mine and Rites of Flourishing.

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.

Hi Dancing-Blade, using your deck to help build my own version of Arahbo, Roar of the World, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats

Noticed you have Lifelink, like Basilisk Collar/Loxodon Warhammer/Ajani, Mentor of Heroes/Etc. Why no Felidar Sovereign do you find you dont get over that 40 life barrier? Just interested, I was thinking of running him as an alternate-win con.

Does Godsend do enough work for it's High CMC? I originally thought about it, but it doesn't stop Commanders because they never get exiled by it, and Commander as it is, unless you run up against a heavy unburial deck does it do much else?

How have you found Hungry Lynx, I keep looking at him and thinking nope, when rats die awesome, but what if I load up my opponents with deathtouch rates, they remove the Hungry Lynx now I'm walking my cats into 1/1 deathtouch that I provided them, that sucks.

Oreskos Explorer being green and ramping, you usually have more lands than opponents? Is it worth the risk of not drawing him turn 1-4 where he might be viable?

Suprised to see Sylvan Reclamation, with so much artifact/enchantment control, Aura Shards, Qasali Slingers, Return to Dust etc, this one is HIGH CMC, but I'm guessing you just Cycle it and move on for the CMC2, and if you need it, then you have it?

I noticed ZendikariWol posted about Howling Mine and Alms Collector and Rites of Flourishing, I haven't posted on the community, but my gut tells me that doesn't work. Drawing an "additional" card, is not the same as "would draw two or more". I stand to be corrected but, Alms Collector with check on the turn draw, only 1 ok nothing, check on resolving the Howling Mine triggered ability, only 1 ok nothing, same for Rites of Flourishing. A Wheel of Fortune or Blue Sun's Zenith for sure there he makes his mark, but I think ZendikariWol assessment is incorrect.

I've had success with Rhonas the Indomitable, he is 5/5 Indestructible/Deathtouch for CMC3 and can always attack with ANY cat on the board. Although, he is not a Cat, he can give a Cat trample if it's blocked.

No Sylvan Library?

Spirits on Arahbo's Killer Kittens

Hey MegaMatt13, Nice Arahbo, Roar of the World deck, I'm trying to build one and found your deck here very helpful. My deck Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats could use help if you have the time!

Trying to figure out the Strionic Resonator, clearly it can copy an Emminence ability, an additional +3/+3 to another target cat, even giving him +6/+6 for . Hi second ability +X/+X says Whenever, so clearly that can be copied, but from my evaluation, I still need to pay the to have the copied ability do anything? So assuming I pay the + (CMC 5), the rulings text says 8/25/2017 While resolving Arahbos last ability, you cant pay multiple times to multiply the effect for one Cat. Does the Strionic Resonator somehow get around that because it says you "may" choose new targets? I'm not sure. If it only can target a different cat, then why wouldn't I just pay the (CMC 3 instead of the ). So for me, I think it only works for Emminence, and for me it's not quite strong enough, I think.

Don't you find Farseek to limiting, why not a Three Visits instead? Probably price/availability my guess. What about Tithe?

I've decided I like Aura Shards better than Qasali Slingers just because its less CMC and harder to remove.

Have you found good value in Song of the Dryads? Enchantment speed seems to slow to stop most combo type interactions. But I guess it is temporary (once they remove the enchantment) removal of ANY permanent. What are the main things you run into? Just for Commanders because it doesn't give it back to them like an Oblivion Ring? I would say Prossh, Skyraider of Kher but he's already done his work by the time you can cast an enchantment.

Is Trailblazer's Boots really necessary with having Trample?

I understand your reasoning behind exluding Lost Leonin but really? What Commander's does your pod play, like Kaalia of the Vast running without a Master of Cruelties or Prossh, Skyraider of Kher excluding Purphoros, God of the Forge. Arahbo, Roar of the World already feels like I'm behind sitting down at most tables with Selesnya already, losing my Lost Leonin + Duelist's Heritage seems crazy! Kess, Dissident Mage will still combo me with a Labratory Maniac all the same.

I've put Rhonas the Indomitable in my build, what do you think? He gives Trample (and a small +2), but he's also a 5/5 Indestructible for (CMC3), AND with ANY cat in play he can attack deathtouch. What are you thoughts on excluding him? Because he isn't a cat?

Sol Ring?

Anyways thanks for the assistance hopefully you find something useful in my comment.

Agreed. So I'll swap out Masterwork for a Prowler's Helm, and going to swap out Qasali Slingers for Qasali Pridemage - 3/3 for 2 with removal and I'm already running Aura Shards anyway.

As for Fireshrieker, I think I'd rather run Duelist's Heritage - same effect, cheaper, and political.
