Sigarda, Host of Herons Discussion
12 hours ago
I would recommend more power-5 or greater cards. You seem to be aiming to use Mayael a lot but I don't think you have enough targets to reliably hit with her. Mayael was also my first EDH deck and I've been updating my deck ever since. I've found that Mayael tends to win by putting unrelenting pressure on your opponents by building a boardstate they just can't match.
I would really try to fit these creatures in:- Spearbreaker Behemoth It's great at defending your team.- Stalking Vengeance This might make people think twice about killing your creatures if they know they'll get smacked in the face if they do.- Sigarda, Host of Herons My local meta has a decent number of sacrifice effects. This stops those cold.- Gisela, Blade of Goldnight Gisela is just a great finisher. She has to be dealt with or she will end the game quickly.
Take a look at my deck Mayael the Anima EDH for more ideas.

I'm not actually certain that you need green here. Fog is sortof a weak card, since it doesn't actually answer any threats, it only buys you a turn. Regardless, if it's an effect you want to have, white already has Ethereal Haze.
I also think Kitchen Finks and Thragtusk should be on your radar. A near way to go green would also be Glittering Wish to get a Verdict, Detention Sphere, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Fracturing Gust etc. from the board.

Cool deck! I love seeing new brews start to come out with the release of new commander sets. A couple suggestions:
Your deck seems like it is sort of caught between an equipment deck and a token deck. I would suggest trying to focus on one or the other. In my opinion, Arahbo plays better when it focuses on pumping 1 creature vs. many. Judging by your description, I think that is what you are going for.
Since tribal decks will probably be pretty common right now, I would play Door of Destinies or Beastmaster Ascension over Coat of Arms. You still get a universal buff for you cats, but you avoid buffing your opponents creatures as well.
Sigarda, Host of Herons would also be great tech against sacrifice effects (and she suits up really well herself).

Deck looks good! My only advice would be to incorperate a little bit of removal so you can interact with the other players. It can be cheap efficient creature removal like Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile or catch alls like Beast Within.
Here's some other Mayael stuff, not necessarily better than what you have already, just more options.
Greenwarden of Murasa "big Eternal Witness"
Stuff that synergizes well with Mayael:

Thanks for your suggestions, AlmightyTentacle!
You've definitely suggested a ton of cards that I either want to test out or already have, so thanks for that! :)
When it comes to card draw, I really haven't experienced many issues. You are correct that I don't have a ton, but keep in mind that I do have tutors/cheaters that essentially are card draws for the specific cards needed.
Herald’s Horn is one that I was pretty excited for when I saw it got spoiled. It'll definitely get tested!
Grenzo, Havoc Raiser was a card that I tested out before, but ended up passing on him. He might be worth testing out again though!
Mikokoro, Center of the Sea will definitely need to be tested. I've honestly overlooked this one, but it can definitely be handy.
I would love to run Imperial Recruiter, but there is no way that I can spend that kinda money...maybe someday though!
Gamble will need to be tested. I hated the idea that I could be forced to pitch what I tutored, but mono-red doesn't really get any better tutors, haha.
The Control & Others category are pretty much all previous inclusions or considerations. I end up not needing the redundancy with some of these cards as much as one would think because most games are won by around turn 8 at the latest.
Quest for Pure Flame may also be re-tested.
As for your recommended cuts, I agree with some of them.
Mardu Scout is another one. I love dashing him for repeatable 2 damage with Purph, and he does synergize with Door of Destinies, but you are right about him being on the chopping board. Grenzo, Havoc Raiser may fill his gap.
Apocalypse is actually really good. I recover exceptionally well after board wipes, and pitching my hand never really hurts me too bad. This deals with heavy enchantment based decks like Bruna, Light of Alabaster, Sigarda, Host of Herons, and Zur the Enchanter.
Again though, thanks so much for your comment! I will be testing out some of these and seeing what works most efficiently! :)

Opponent was playing a Sigarda, Host of Herons deck and had the commander on field. I cast Torment of Hailfire with X = 16. He was at 30 life with two cards in hand, but dies because he can't sacrifice anything due to his commander. LOL
