Hey, so I don't entirely know the restrictions on pauper commander, but the flipside of Loyal Cathar  Flip is color identity black, meaning it's outside Tiana's color identity. You could replace it with another equipment-centric creature, such as Goblin Gaveleer , Skyhunter Cub , Sunspear Shikari , or Training Drone . Happy brewing, hope it works the way you want!

Leonin Elder doesn't seem like a particularly excellent pick here. You have a lot of artifacts, but I don't expect you'll be playing more than one each turn, and 1 life gained each turn doesn't seem particularly beneficial if you aren't capitalizing on those life-gain triggers. I think Ajani, Caller of the Pride and Felidar Sovereign would require far more support on the life-gain theme for you to really take advantage of that. I'd go deeper with pumps, removal, protection, etc. rather than keeping a mild life-gain sub-theme here.

I might also look to see if there are more useful cats at the two-drop slot to replace some of the leonin folk. Have you looked at Vanguard of Brimaz?

Skyhunter Skirmisher instead of Skyhunter Cub?

Dispatch has amazing synergy here!

This list is really inspiring. I have a friend who loves playing with cats, and I've been looking for ways to upgrade her from the C17 precon deck. I'm definitely keeping an eye on this!

Skyhunter Cub seems like there are better targets for the equipment, could be a Felidar Sovereign, spikes your mana curve a bit, but not unreasonably.

Stoneforge Masterwork could be a Felidar Sovereign, if it's big your just asking for a boardwipe, if the board has been cleared, it's probably less utility than your ramping/lifelink equipment anyway. It's going to encourage you to over commit board presence, when you only have 1 eminence trigger anyway, better to be ready for rebuilding.

Sungrass Prairie could be a Felidar Sovereign, it's not a turn 1 land, and makes turn 2 problematic. 36 is actually what I play in normal commander, but have found that it's too much with all the ramp spell/draw/equipment in Arahbo, Roar of the World

Sylvan Reclamation could be a Felidar Sovereign, you have lots of Enchantment/Artifact removal, it does land cycle on turn 2 for sure, but it doesn't put the land in play, so not that utility. Normal cycling would be better.

Couple ideas for cut-list anyway. My deck is still a continual work in process unfortunately.

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

A few nice kitty cat to consider into the sky: Skyhunter Skirmisher and Leonin Skyhunter. The former is a dangerous kitty with any toy or the blessing of Arahbo. It will fly in and take a big chunk of life of any opponent without flyers. It is better, then Leonin Den-Guard or Skyhunter Cub. Leonin Skyhunter is more resilient and also flies in the air. And any cat in the air is dangerous. Some more examples, if you want to go in that direction (also in the budget) Skyhunter Prowler and Skyhunter Patrol. Both are weaker than Skyhunter Skirmisher or Leonin Skyhunter but I think they are better than Skyhunter Cub or Leonin Den-Guard

So, Skyhunter Cub is adorable, but really doesn't help to push your tribal theme that much, and isn't so potent. She doesn't give you any combat tricks, and is only useful if equipped.

Leonin Scimitar is cheap, but is it the best card for the deck? This one is on you to decide. It is a fine card, I'm just wondering what you are thinking.

Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a solid cat creator card that could help. Another card to add might be Konda's Banner if you aren't skull clamping, it is quite the little tool. Stoneforge Masterwork is nice if you are planning to go wide at all.

Love you long time.

coldjin on Returning player, returning deck.

3 years ago

Hey everybody, returning player here. I've been on a long hiatus since the Mirrodin days and then, years after, a friend of mine sucked me back in because he wanted to learn how to play. I'm a little lost at the moment, to be honest. I had to read through years of countless new expansions and rules and I still do not have everything clear in my mind. Anyhow, let's cut to the chase. I used to play Magic as a kid, and the only deck I have right now is a deck - you guessed it right - built by a kid with poor to no understanding of the circumstantial answers to controls and whatnot. It was (and still is) built thematically around my favourite cards at the time, the Leonins. The goal was to play flying creatures, equip them and do as much damage as possible in a short time. I acknowledge that the power of such deck can be countered in infinite ways, but I still like the aggro core of it and the underlying Leonin theme. So, my question is: is there a way to update this deck, make it more playable in the Modern format while retaining the theme and let the aggro strategy stand out with a few more tools to help it accomplish a succesful endgame? Do you have any suggestions, criticism? Any little bit of help would be useful, I realized I missed Magic and I'd like to have a functioning deck to be a little bit more competitive. I'm gonna write the decklist down below. In the meanwhile, thanks for checking my thread!
