Spirits on Arahbo, Budget... for Cats EDH

2 weeks ago


Eternal Witness can go, I usually use her simply to get the Lost Leonin back anyway. Could be a cat or a tutor.

Broken Bond can go, would be better as a multi-card or a fetch like Return to Dust or Kodama's Reach or Farseek. The problem is, there needs to be a viable Artifact/Enchantment in play. If there isn't your just holding it in hand (not ramping you). Secondly, assuming there is a Sol Ring or Lightning Greaves or something to destroy that isn't yours, you still have to have a land in your hand, very unlikely both conditions are true when it matters. Go Return to Dust if you need Artifact/Enchantment removal, you'll find the Exile far superior to destroy. A creature tutor here can grab your Qasali Pridemage anyway if there is an artifact/enchantment you need to remove, and if not then you get a Lost Leonin

Mirri, Cat Warrior could go, but I would replace her with Kemba, Kha Regent, I wouldn't go down any cats.

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip could go, I was seeing if her potential to draw would outweigh the fact that the land goes into your hand instead of the battlefield, but so far it hasn't worked out. I haven't given up testing yet, but getting close. She could be a Kodama's Reach or Farseek or a Cat.

Harmonize has a low Card to CMC ratio. Basically gives you 2 cards for CMC4 (because it just replaces itself). Something like Momentous Fall probably has better upside. You have to Sacrifice an Eminence creature, but you get the Lifegain, and potential. Like think about Berserk an Eminence Cat and then Momentous Fall as an example. Could also be a tutor.

Nissa's Pilgrimage, I would prefer Kodama's Reach, just incase I don't have a Plains, the Spell mastery isn't anything to write home about either for the possible disadvantages.

Beast Within is CMC3 for Destroy and another downside, the 3/3 4/4 Beast I'm not sure. Selesnya doesn't have a lot of removal, so I understand the thinking. Stasis Snare gives another Instant removal, but have Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile already, but I would rather have another card that enables my strategy, like a tutor, and leave the higher cost removal to decks that have good removal. Understandable if you want to keep it in.

It's looking good, the tutors are critical because they let you pull the Lost Leonin early, they let you complete the combo Archangel of Thune/Spike Feeder they let you try and win with Felidar Sovereign.

Possible changes I am trying now: Main moving 2 Arlinn Kord  Flip and 2 Dromoka's Command to side board to replacing 3 Feat of Resistance and 1 Stasis Snare

I will be adding Monastery Mentor Reckless Bushwhacker Collected Company Rush of Adrenaline

also debating about replacing arlin with either hazoret or storm breath

Yeah we play casual as well so it went from commander to arch enemy and I was nicole Bolas. lol jk. I had a good opening hand with four lands a Sylvan Library, Stasis Snare, and Darksteel Mutation. SOOOOOO with that hand I just MAY HAVE pissed off the sram player....... SO basically that hand was like God to me because of early Sylvan Library and basically everyone else complained because that I had at least 7-9 permanents on turn 5. I like to think of it as them having slow decks. lol.

After thinking it over I've decided to make a few more changes to the deck. I've moved Solemnity, Phyrexian Unlife, Tainted AEther and Opalescence into the main board and added Decree of Silence and Enchanted Evening. I've moved Invoke Prejudice, Teferi's Moat, War Tax and Athreos, God of Passage to the maybeboard and removed Stasis Snare and Archetype of Courage completely. I really like the combos Solemnity has with Phyrexian Unlife and Decree of Silence and I've tried to go for some land destruction with Tainted AEther and the Enchanted Evening and Opalescence Combo.

WickedLizardInc, so Stasis Snare can only target creatures while Faith's Fetters can shut down artifacts and planeswalkers. The one extra mana is worth the expanded options. As for Sun Droplet, yeah it's only 1 life, feel free to replace it...

Darth_Savage, I gotta say, I was skeptical at first, but after a few play tests on here, I've really fallen in love with the deck. I just have a few questions about some of the sideboard cards. Why Faith's Fetters over a card like Stasis Snare? I get the life gain, but Stasis Snare is cheaper to cast and has flash. Also, can you clarify for me how Sun Droplet works? Can I remove any number of charge counters or only one per upkeep? If it's only one per upkeep, I'm not sure it's really worth it, as against some more aggro decks it'll be to slow.

Thanks for taking the time to make this deck and help me out. Once i get all the cards sorted out, I'll definitely be taking it to my LGS's modern tournament
