Sacred Cat Discussion

Hey! I just tested a few games with it, and it got ran over pretty hard by aggro/burn decks.
Your creature curve is pretty harsh--only total of 6 creatures all the way up to the 3-slot. Authority of the Consuls is a good way to mitigate this a little bit, but not quite enough on its own. There are a handful of good white creatures out there in the 1-2-3 slot that could work with your ETB/Panharmonicon theme. Shield Mare, Sunscourge Champion, for example give you some more early plays, or even just a set of Seal Away or Baffling End to keep you alive until turn 5. Even a couple of Sacred Cats could go a long way to keeping you from dying to Bomat Courier. Knight of Grace could also be sweet--great blocker in the 2-slot. Since you're playing the Tribal bonuses in Radiant Destiny and Vanquisher's Banner (presumably putting them on Angel), you probably want Shalai, Voice of Plenty. Even without the ETB trigger, she is a great angel, and keeps your other angels hexproofed.
It's a cool shell, and a great synergy plan, but overall I found it a little inconsistent and very weak to aggressive decks. Maybe go down the one Bishop of Binding and go up the 4th Fairgrounds Warden.
In general, try to use more 4-ofs! If the card is central to the deck's strategy, play all 4 copies! If your curve is too high, then pick the one that works best. If Angel of Sanctions is your key gameplan, then use all 4 and go down the other angels that aren't AS good. This will just help your deck play more consistently--you'll get the drops you really want more often.
Keep it up!

I've been running this deck for a few weeks now on MTG online ( 90% identical ) and my only problem is getting out of a stalemate which Suspicious Bookcase fixed for me.

Thanks for commenting!
Dropping Sacred Cat is a no-go. It's a good card in its own right (even if Legion's Landing Flip would be slightly better), plus we need a high density of 1-drops to be able to drop our hand efficiently. Sunscorched Desert is basically not a land for us since so few of our cards use colorless mana. If it doesn't come into play untapped and make White mana, we can't run it as a land. I've been consistently unimpressed with Oketra the True. She just gets chumped or hit by Vraska's Contempt, and 4 mana is too much to put into her for that. Suspicious Bookcase doesn't really work with our plan; it's too slow and not aggressive enough, plus few of our creatures are big enough to be worth it. I'd rather just have any of our other 2-drops. I could see a case for Djeru's Renunciation but since we usually need a few hits to punch through for the win, I'd rather just have Cast Out. It's more versatile.

I would just drop Cast Out and Sacred Cat and add some Sunscorched Desert, 1 or 2x Oketra the True, Djeru's Renunciation ( cycle 1, can't go wrong ) and Suspicious Bookcase is a great finisher / defender.

Glad you like it! Really the only budget consideration I made was to use Sacred Cat over Legion's Landing Flip, and even then it isn't a strict upgrade. Otherwise, the deck is pretty much as optimized as I could make it.

Right now I think enchantments is really nice to play kitchen table but fnm maybe. If I were playing this I'd look for huge payoffs like Satyr Enchanter. With that going all out 4x History of Benalia seems worth it along with Knight of Grace somewhere in the 75.
Personally, I never add something unless I'm ready to battle all types of decks. With that maybe adding Seal Away, Binding, or even Baffling End or Cast Out. At least 2-3 MB. However, if your all in aggression at the very least SB. You'll be happy at least game 2 and 3 you have the option!

I largely agree with Nusteyr that Sacred Cat is sacred at 4-of, while you can benefit from some added card draw and some mana, or counter ramp. While trying to build a M19 cat deck, I ended up with 2 decks with slightly different strategies. See what you think of M19M Selesnya Cats and 19 white kittens. I try to get the emblems of Nissa, Vital Force and Huatli, Radiant Champion to get some mega card-draw going.
