Steppe Lynx Discussion
1 day ago
I was thinking about Steppe Lynx and Knight of the Reliquary because they combo so well in decks that want lands in the graveyard. With Goyf it would be a Bant build and the mana base could creep to the prohibitive cost range.

What about Steppe Lynx? It's basically a 2/3 for 1, and with all your fetchlands, it might be even better.
Also, Collected Company since you have so many critters.

I know it is already in the maybe section of the list, but i have to stress how incredible Knight of the Reliquary would be in such a list!Honestly, i'd drop the Steppe Lynx and Birds of Paradise completely (reasons were already stated by other commentators) And add instead 2 Lotus Cobra and 3 Knight of the Reliquaryplus one more land.You might also be interested in Renegade Rallier since he basically boosts Lotus Cobra's power level over 9000

Thank you for your time and suggestions! I currently run my landbase on cards I have (so no Arid Mesa in my case).
Not sure about Steppe Lynx though. I'm afraid that with only 20 lands (even if we play a lot of fetches), Steppe Lynx is just going to end up as a chump blocker. I really like Qasali Ambusher for the suprise element and it's great against cards like Delver of Secrets Flip and Goblin Guide, especially if you played a turn 1 Temple Garden.

Your average non-land CMC is 1.846, color ratios are pretty clean, a couple landbase points:
To Support the lynx and Brimaz, upping the white mana seems smart, if you decide to do these changes, I'd suggest dropping a mountain, and throwing in a couple Arid Mesa by dropping a plains as well.
I'll build up a quick decklist for this on my account.

Are you open for cards outide of the recent standard environment? There are some great cats and tribal cards which you could use in this purrfect deck!
Brimaz, King of Oreskos might interest you, since he produces kittens to boost your Pride Sovereign! Fleecemane Lion is a powerful feline. I would definately find a home for them! Qasali Pridemage is super good, providing removal and exalted! Steppe Lynx is very good with fetchlands, speaking of, you might want Temple Garden , Windswept Heath and maybe even a Gavony Township perhaps! Cavern of Souls if you're feeling particularly wealthy hehe. as well as Mutavault! Its always gonna be a cat :)
Radiant Destiny might be a good anthem effect for this deck since it looks like you might be able to get ascend pretty easily.

It's not that I can't see having 3 mana in turn 2 is nice, and only possible with birds. But that is the only time where Birds of Paradise is preferable to land. Topdecking the parrots a couple of turns later, and it's a horrible card (where a land instead would be good, since it would trigger landfall).
The problem with Steppe Lynx is that it doesn't have evasion in any way, and I doubt that you can keep the pressure up with landfall (if nothing else, you run out of lands at some point). And that means opposing mana dorks, pyromancer tokens, and other rabble is going to chump block your Steppe Lynx and tell it to have a snickers, until it has cooled down, and is 0/1 or 2/3. Of course Rhonas the Indomitable can give it trample, but by the time you can do that, you have played most of your lands, and we're back with to snickers-munching lynx. But maybe it's really down to you seeing landfall as a midrange-strategy, and I'm considering it more of a creature-combo-strategy, playing a bit like infect (fast, very big creature, that stops being big at all pretty fast). It's fairly easy to build 8 power or so on a Steppe Lynx, and Rite of Consumption is one way of getting something out of the overgrown cat. If you don't go for a couple of very burst-y turns, I don't think Steppe Lynx is a good card, though.
Oh, and you could also use Tolaria West. It can tutor up Summoner's Pact, which can then find the creature you really want to find (as long as it's green creature). It can also find any utility lands you might want.
