Spirits on Cat.

6 days ago

Hey flamingweasels,

Are any of the degenerate combos cat tribal specific. I'm trying to find some cat-centric combos for my Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH Deck but haven't found anything good yet.

All I've been able to come-up with so far, but are really janky are:

Temur Sabertooth + Karametra's Acolyte + Swiftfoot Boots + 4 Devotion | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or + 1 Devotion Infinite Mana. No clue what I would do with this mana even if I made it.

Cryptolith Rite + Leonin Battlemage + Oketra's Monument + Whitemane Lion | Infinite 1/1 Warrior Tokens. Who doesn't love 4-card combos that involve 2 cats to make 1/1 warriors that don't even have haste. On the plus side Oketra's Monument looks cat-ish.

Aluren + Fleetfoot Panther or Whitemane Lion | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. Aluren terrifies me, none of the cats are ultimately good on their own either.

Changeling Hero + Changeling Titan | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. They may not look like cats but they are... I guess.

Leonin Relic-Warder + Oblivion Ring or Journey to Nowhere + Sun Titan or Karmic Guide or Reveillark + Greater Good | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. Soon as you say Sun Titan or Karmic Guide or Reveillark which is Saffi Eriksdotter so why would I waste time with Cats.

I've been reading cat after cat card, and nothing has come to me yet like the Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder | Infinite Life + Infinite +1/+1 Counters type combo.

I'm not sure Chord of Calling + Felidar Sovereign + 40 life is even a combo. More just a mana sponge at life < 40.

If you have anything please let me know!

A cat wearing a Helm of Obedience would be obnoxious enough for me, but not sure any cats enable it. Rest in Peace no-cat combo.

Whats your Tooth and Nail combo, any cats?

Any help very much appreciated.

Switch these in from the sideboard:

2 Scour 2 Angel's Grace 2 Fog 2 Oblivion Ring 2 Echoing Calm

Replace these:One each of Ajani's Chosen, Blasting Station, Stuffy Doll, Pariah and Providence, as well as the three Spike Feeder and two Sunbond.

What you should try to do is use Scour on their lands as soon as you can, and try to get some creatures through to attack.

Although, I should point out, that if removing the +1/+1 counter from Spike Feeder causes its toughness to drop to zero it will be moved to the graveyard as a state-based effect before the ability can resolve. Removing the counter is part of the payment to put the ability on the stack, and SBAs are checked every time a player gets priority.

Yes, Spike Feeder's ability can target itself. There's no language in its ability preventing it from doing so. When a permanent's ability cannot target itself it's typically worded as "another target..." like you see in cards like Avacyn, Guardian Angel.

Can a Spike Feeder pay the two mana to remove a +1/+1 counter and put it back on itself?

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

Thanks for the comment TzickyT.

He's a 3/2 for CMC3, so he's decently in scale. He is not a cat, so can't use the Eminence with him. He does have built-in recursion. In my build, he only has 10 targets (that's pretty low), but Lost Leonin, Puresteel Paladin, Qasali Pridemage, Swiftfoot Boots, Sylvan Library, Umezawa's Jitte all pretty high value targets.

Because he's not a cat, and because he doesn't have enough targets (10), I wouldn't run him in this deck, plus I think he is built for being abused (which I like, but is not the goal of this build).

If you want to build around him, I think he would be great.

Renegade Rallier + Saffi Eriksdotter + Blasting Station (or Altar of Dementia any sac outlet basically) looks like Infinite Damage to me.

Can't think of anyone else off the top of my head he combos with, but:

Saffi Eriksdotter + Sun Titan or Karmic Guide or Reveillark all work.

Also enables Fiend Hunter + Sun Titan or Karmic Guide.

Another tool in the Saffi Eriksdotter combo wheelhouse. I'm testing Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder | Infinite Life + Infinite +1/+1 Counters of which neither are Cats, so really bothers me. It plays on my Life gain Sub-Theme, but it's still not right.

I've worked out a couple combos with Cats, but nothing really concrete yet. Renegade Rallier is a bit too far away from my goal, but a pretty amazing guy, I like him. He feels more Trostani, Selesnya's Voice or Karametra, God of Harvests or 100% Saffi Eriksdotter to me. It's easily tutorable combo in . With a Greater Good can tutor for the Blasting Station or whatever damage outlet you need.

If you decide to run him, I would build some synergy around him with a recursive sub-theme.

Servant of the Scale/Simic Initiate? Sits a little better with the hardened scales plan in my testing, but still solid.

That said, this deck is a lot more midrangey than my brews. I'd honestly feel worried playing it without a stronger disruption/lifegain package. Perhaps Gristleback/Aven Riftwatcher and maindeck Scavenging Ooze/Spike Feeder

Ugh. Computer crash. I'm not gonna write everything I wrote before because it's late, but here's the gist:Awesome way to include all the Salad commanders--Ravos Anthem/recursion adds a nice touch and you're not just playing Ghave like all the Yawny Jonnies.

I was noticing a +1/+1 sub-theme: Maybe Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder combo or Drana, Liberator of Malakir

More just for me, I want to see the new Grand Warlord Radha in a deck and this would make it work. Probably not really good enough, though.

The only card I must insist on (by your build) is Anointed Procession. It's just White Parallel Lives.

Keep up them Yeasty Brews! +1!
