Sacred Cat Discussion

The reason I went just with Rhonas the Indomitable is the Devotion . Since I only have 1 Eminence trigger, I usually only have 1 cat in play (sometimes 2 if they are enabler cats like Leonin Shikari + Lost Leonin. As long as I have ANY cat eg: Sacred Cat + Eminence tigger, Rhonas the Indomitable can attack. I found the 5/5 Deathtouch Indestructible tempo, along with maybe having been hit with a cat a couple times already was better than trample. Because I would rarely hit my devotion ultimately decided Nylea, God of the Hunt was too slow (no aggro/tempo/advantage).
She's great in a slightly different (-Centric) build. I also thought about the Bow of Nylea. Right now I don't have the symbols, I'm more symbols (tried to balance as best as I could).
That's why she didn't make the 99. Excellent suggestion. Thanks.

Well, i would suggest Chalice of Life Flip so you have some thing that help get your life up, and then kill your opponent. As much as Sunscorch Regent look good, it's mana cost make him inefficient. I would instead play Odric, Lunarch Marshal so you can give lifelink and other keyword to all your creature. In fact, i think you should lower all your mana curve. Putting thing like Sacred Cat for exemple or even some Fiendslayer Paladin. To reach a competitive level, you'll also need to remplace your land by shock land and add some fetch, even though they cost life(and shit tons of money) cause being fast is very important in MTG. Also think about adding someShambling Vent.

PedroMarcello Those are all great suggestions and thanks for the +1. I am seriously considering the Mind Stone and other ramp options for this deck, since it would be good to get the Seraph out T3. So far, the early game plan of Sacred Cat+Exalted=lots of lifegain and/or Aven Squire +Exalted for big air damage have been working very good. I've had games when the Aven was swinging for 7+ and has won games on its own, no Angel needed, so getting the Seraph out early might not be that important(?) I guess it depends on which path you take with a deck like this...

Well, I would start off by saying there are two primary archetypes for sacrifice decks. Rally and Aristocrats. Rally lists focus on filling your graveyard with 2-3 cmc creatures, reviving them with Rally the Ancestors and the sacrificing them all -- likely with 2-3 Blood Artist effects in play to win. Aristocrats lists tend to focus less on 'combo' and more on 'synergy', and try to gain advantages through sacrifice effects. There has been some blending between the two archetypes recently, but I still feel they are distinct enough to be different.
There are then color combinations within each of the archetypes. Rally is often done in or . Aristocrats lists are often or . However with 3 color mana bases often comes a higher costs as fetch lands and shock lands are not always cheap. Two color mana bases are often fairly affordable, and you often can get away with no shocks or fecthes. With that being said, the first suggestion for a creature I would suggest is...
Bloodghast. However, he works best with fetch lands. In a pinch, you could use Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds, but they can feel pretty slow. But the ability to sacrfice Bloodghast, play a fetch land to return him to play, sacrifice him, sacrifice the fetch land to place another land into play to return Bloodghast to play so you can sacrifice him again -- that can add up to a lot of value.
Along similar lines, Gravecrawler can also generate a lot of advantage if you are playing enough zombies to have one in play with a fair level of consistency. Relentless Dead and Cryptbreaker can put in a lot of work with this guy.
While not all in black, Doomed Traveler, Tukatongue Thallid, Lingering Souls, Kitchen Finks, Bloodsoaked Champion, Mogg War Marshal, Sacred Cat, Voice of Resurgence, Tidehollow Sculler, Blisterpod, Bitterblossom, Orzhov Pontiff, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, and Keldon Marauders can all be sacrificed for good value.
As far as sacrifice engines go, Falkenrath Aristocrat, and Cartel Aristocrat are the namesakes. But Nantuko Husk, Bloodthrone Vampire, Greater Gargadon, Hidden Stockpile, Viscera Seer, Tymaret, the Murder King, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Bontu the Glorified, Mind Slash and Teysa, Orzhov Scion are all good ways to keep sacrificing permanents. I also like Fleshbag Marauder, Sidisi's Faithful, and Sidisi, Undead Vizier, but they only sacrifice one thing upon etb.
Value is also important to consider as there are a number of cards that fit well within these lists, but do not necessarily read 'please sacrifice me', or 'sacrifice all the things.' But, they can certainly give you the gas to pull ahead. Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat's advantages can be obvious in a deck like this. Additionally, Eternal Witness, Dark Confidant (or Asylum Visitor for budget), Phyrexian Arena, Smuggler's Copter, Collected Company, Return to the Ranks, Eldritch Evolution, Abzan Ascendancy, Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip, Grave Pact, Lord of the Undead+Nameless Inversion (also works well with any other zombie) might all have places in different shells.
These are just a cards that might be interesting. I don't want to build your deck for you. But if any of those cards piqued your interest, I can certainly throw out some additional ideas that play well with the cards you liked.

Including Dominaria cards:
Knight of Grace, Adanto Vanguard, Sacred Cat, and Adorned Pouncer seem like strong contenders for the creature slot as they all strain opponents removal in a a variety of ways. In spirit of Slippery Bogle, I would run any of them over the 11 creatures presented (and since none of their protections are "perfect," I would run more creatures all together). Also, Sram, Senior Edificer offers card advantage with auras, vehicles and equipment.
Auras/equipment I would run include: Curious Obsession (more card draw), Squire's Devotion (Token and lifelink, probably over Aether Meltdown as they have similar effects on racing one's opponent), On Serra's Wings (keyword soup like Danitha), and Forebear's Blade.
I know there is a couple builds of UW Auras that are successful right now in the online meta if you want to give them a look.
I run a Merfolk UG Boggles deck in the Arena beta that I have some success with since it can make a lot of hexproof merfolk tokens.

Anointer Priest is really good in token decks. Once it comes out, History of Benalia seems good for tokens. If it is in your budget, Legion's Landing Flip would also be good. Also, all creatures with ebalm (like Sacred Cat or eternalize would get some tokens. Cartouche of Solidarity, Cartouche of Knowledge, and Trial of Solidarity work well together, and the cartouches could work well with Temmet to create a big, unblockable token. On the unblockable theme, Curious Obsession could get more damage and cards.

tjjonny2000 the reason we dont play Slippery Scoundrel instead of Sacred Cat thats not where I want to be on my turn three I think in my opinion its better to be able to play one or two araus an start beating down
