Raksha Golden Cub Discussion

Gadianten on Magic the Gathering Presents, Cats

I think your theatrical feline cast is a bit thin and you might want to look over a few potential talents such as Regal Caracal , Adorned Pouncer , Balan, Wandering Knight , Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Jazal Goldmane , Jareth, Leonine Titan , Leonin Abunas , Leonin Shikari , Leonin Warleader , Oreskos Explorer and Raksha Golden Cub to fill out any roles you may have.

Equipment is a very costly prop for such a play and as such I would look to add some more mana sources such as Thran Dynamo , Everflowing Chalice , Worn Powerstone and other efficient sources.

alu4 on Arahbo's Kitted-Out Kitties [Primer]

Great, I have built it and it's lots of fun. I made some changes based on my matches.

Out:
Krosan Verge - put Mutavault instead.
Godsend
Helm of Kaldra
Mask of Avacyn
Sword of Kaldra
Masterwork of Ingenuity - I don't have it, will buy.
Asceticism - I don't have it and put Privileged Position instead.
Leonin Abunas - Privileged Position can protect kitties' toys.
Prowling Serpopard - I haven't seen someone counter kitties, so I put other things.
Raksha Golden Cub - Too big, I put Taj-Nar Swordsmith instead.
Steppe Lynx - I prefer Loam Lion, Steppe Lynx needs landfall.
Hunting Cheetah - I don't have it, will buy.
Teferi's Protection - I don't have it, will buy.

In:
Mutavault
Conqueror's Flail
Trailblazer's Boots
Umezawa's Jitte
Privileged Position
Berserk
Nature's Lore
Rampant Growth
Kodama's Reach
Nissa's Pilgrimage

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.

Spirits on Kick Ass Kitty Kats

Hi foxes101,

Do you have a specific budget in mind, Under $40, Under $50?

I do have a $50 budget Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist which is a cat-only tribal deck, Mirri, Little Kid Aggro $50 EDH. Might find some interesting budget ideas in there.

I also have a non-budget Arahbo, Roar of the World, it's still a work-in-process, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

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.

Bloodline Shaman I assume is trying to help the draw, which in turn kind-of helps the Bonehoard as well, so let's go with that for now, but is an Elf, not a cat. Creative budget drawing at least.

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.

Hunter's Insight is a better draw then some of the "janky" draw mechanics in budget, to a lesser degreeSoul's Majesty / Hunter's Prowess also work but are Sorcery and susceptible to instant removal.

Skyhunter Skirmisher has build in evasion and double strike (cat) if you can get him an Equipment or 2. Rancor?

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 .

Do you not find you get board-wiped and that is the end? I would run at least a couple protections, like Make a Stand or Rootborn Defenses or Dusk (recur all power 2 - 19 targets right now).

Soul Snare is another janky type Condemn, always Oblivion Ring.

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.

+1.

Neotrup on Is "Artifact" a creature type?

7 months ago

In fact, "Legend" was a creature type up through Mirrodin. The supertype "legendary" was introduced in the set Legends along with the creature type, but was never put on creatures until Kamigawa block. Raksha Golden Cub from Fifth Dawn still used the creature type Legend. Kamigawa block aimed to clean up the rules baggage of "Legend" by folding it into the "Legendary" supertype (seen all the way back on Karakas from Legends). The block also removed the baggage of "Wall" by creating the keyword Defender so that there weren't any creature types with rules meanings anymore.

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

1 year ago

TzickyT,

Bloodforged Battle-Axe + Behemoth Sledge + Sigarda's Aid + Krosan Vorine would be a great replacement 4 cards. I've been playing Bloodforged Battle-Axe in my Mirri, Little Kid Aggro EDH and it can get out of hand sometimes!

Sterling Grove is great, I don't have many Enchantments which is why I ended up removing it, but the ability to tutor Sylvan Library is powerful. Sylvan Library is very important in winning with Arahbo, Roar of the World.

Cultivate + Kodama's Reach + Mirari's Wake + Raksha Golden Cub or Jazal Goldmane (And activate him 2x or 3x) could also be good.

You could try the Blackblade Reforged + Sword of the Animist + Sigarda's Aid + Stoneforge Mystic or Burnished Hart, and replace the fast mana fetches like Nature's Lore and Three Visits and Green Sun's Zenith with Cultivate + Kodama's Reach to get more lands, throw in a Traverse the Outlands to ensure you win. Tutor your Blackblade Reforged and with a Doublestrike or Trample would be an effective weapon. Throw a Taj-Nar Swordsmith in there too since the sword is only . Rhonas the Indomitable will be awesome in this build, with all that land he can trigger his ability to give Trample to the Blackblade Reforged Cat.
