Spike Feeder Discussion

Interesting update and feedback from your games. My opinion is that Arahbo, Roar of the World is already a Tier 4 Commander, and Selsnya () doesn't have any strong combos or synergies, and none that I've been able to create (yet) that involve only Cats!
Infect is the primary (and only) way Arahbo, Roar of the World can actually win. You're not going to bludgeon 3 other players in a pod for 40 damage and still be around to tell the tale. With the exception perhaps of Felidar Sovereign once in a blue moon, I don't think there's much else to build on.
What Tier commanders are in your pod?
Heck even Mono-, eg. Teferi, Temporal Archmage, use the same thing, or ultimate planeswalkers over and over.
Even Tier 1.5 Golgari () The Gitrog Monster doesn't care.
Tier 2 Mardu () eg. Alesha, Who Smiles at Death combo off.
Can keep going on and on, but without Infect, I can't see how Arahbo, Roar of the World would be worth playing, and how it would possibly win?
I guess in a pod like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Nekusar, the Mindrazer, and Rakdos, Lord of Riots I could see thinking Infect wasn't fair. Heck, even Tier 4 Samut, Voice of Dissent single Commander damage hits.
None of these things are any more or less fair than Infect, and actually, they are MUCH easier to do than Infect. We only have Lost Leonin, Triumph of the Hordes and Grafted Exoskeleton to get the job done on 3 players anyway! Don't even get a Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon and Hatred in . It's an uphill battle before drawing the first card!
Very interesting. PS: I did put Archangel of Thune and Spike Feeder combo in my Arahbo, Roar of the World still testing it out, both kind of worked with the lifegain and counters sub-theme of my cat deck, but neither is a cat. Still trying to find some SOLID combos with cats, let me know if you've found any! Very easy to Tutor with the creature pulls and things like Chord of Calling.

I choose to leave out Sage of Hours as I figured it would only be fun to pull off the one time, but if my scene gets more competitive I'll definitely put it in.Spike Feeder and Hangarback Walker are good shouts though, cheers!

Have you thought about Infect Lost Leonin, Triumph of the Hordes, Duelist's Heritage, Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Berserk, Eladamri's Call, Grafted Exoskeleton, Worldly Tutor, etc. as a possible win-con. I find on occasion I can get Turn 3 or Turn 4 infect killing pretty regularily.
Prowling Serpopard is a 4 power for CMC3 cat, with 2 great abilities, I would run him for tempo and for his awesomness.
See Brimaz, King of Oreskos in your maybeboard, he's good, 3/4 Vigilance for CMC3 plus procs vigilance cats, especially handy with a Triumph of the Hordes. He lacks true synergy with the deck, but he a strong cat nevertheless.
Angel of Sanctions feels out of place, but I get your looking for the removal, I wouldn't go that route though. Archangel of Thune combos with Spike Feeder! Spike Feeder isn't that awesome on his own but also has limited synergy with Felidar Sovereign as well. If you run creature Tutors makes it viable.
With only 2 Aura spells (1 really if you ignore Song of the Dryads), Puresteel Paladin feels better than Sram, Senior Edificer and can help with your bundles of Equipment, or both maybe! Maybe a Bloodforged Battle-Axe too since you have them? No Rancor?

Forgotten Ancient is a good way of making counters to spread around your team.
Ezuri, Claw of Progress will gain XP counters from all your mana dorks, and then make free counters.
Sage of Hours put counters on him to win.
I just like Spike Weaver in any deck with counters.

Thanks for the comment and suggestions. Spike Feeder is going to find a spot. As for Mike and Trike, take a look at my ist again. Everything deals with life gain/loss. it doesn't fit the theme at all it's just another infinite combo.

Currently working on a Karador build myself. I like a lot of the cards in your deck, but why aren't you running Spike Feeder? Infinite life if you have Archangel of Thune and that combo will win you the game with Sanguine Bond or Defiant Bloodlord. I am also running the Mike and Trike combo, so Triskelion wins with this combo as well.
