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.

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?

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

Welcome, fellow planeswalkers, to the Official MagicalHacker Commander List Update (OMCLU) for Commander 2017!
If you are not aware, I have had lists for commander staple effects for a very long time now, and I have been updating them as new sets are released. Unlike other staple lists that showcase individual cards that are commonly used (which http://edhrec.com does better anyways), I instead use these lists to show all cards in categories that have proven to be advantageous to have in Commander. More specifically, these categories of staples are ones that answer certain problems a deck could be experiencing, such as having a hard time against control, not being able to play cards in hand quickly enough, or dealing with problematic commanders. (The full list can be found on my profile.)
The purpose of this thread is three-fold:
To raise public awareness for these lists (which I know to be extremely useful since I use them more than literally any other resource online when building decks), especially for the newest additions to them.
To receive feedback about C17 cards that should be added/removed from lists, as I am only human and make mistakes too.
To receive feedback about older cards that should be added/removed from lists. I'm surprised how many times I miss cards when they should be included.
Commander 2017 is up on Gatherer, so its now time to go through the process of updating my decks! (Sorry for the delay, I was working through some technical difficulties.)
