Steppe Lynx Discussion

You should try Steppe Lynx and Loam Lion, and for a budget mana base i'll go for playsets of Terramorphic Expanse, Evolving Wilds and a bunch of basic lands.

Pickacantaloupe - I like the Steppe Lynx for sure but I think he's more of a "starts in hand quick advantage" player rather than something to really put a package around, so I agree with your second comment.

I do have a Hunting Cheetah actually and I am thinking of putting him in, but I'm not sure he fits just now. If he were then I think it'd be a stronger push but I think as a he's a little weaker.

Finally, regarding the Metallic Mimic I did have him in but he's value on tokens rather than 1 or 2 big cats. The extra +1/+1 isn't worth it in my opinion, especially as you need to draw him first and you'll be tutoring out the other cats anyway. I felt similar about Adaptive Automaton. These cats can get so big the extra counter isn't worth a card slot. I might be wrong though and I might change my mind.

i would just like to point out that you could also easily swap the black cards with green and run

Undergrowth Champion (infinitly large creature),

Retreat to Kazandu (inf life or infinitly large creature),

Knight of the Reliquary (tutor for sejiri steppe)

Jaddi Offshoot (also inf life)

Steppe Lynx and Scythe Leopard (inf large creature for a turn)

Lotus Cobra (inf mana)

another black card i saw was:

Scrib Nibblers (inf mill)

Great start to the deck! I'd recommend a couple changes, like switching in that Regal Caracal. The buffs and tokens it gives you are well worth it. Maybe take out Seht's Tiger or Lost Leonin. Seht's Tiger is great for it's ETB, but there's better stuff out there unless you can flicker it. Lost Leonin's infect ability is nice, but makes it a target, especially since it has 1 toughness and no evasion. I'd also consider taking out Trained Caracal for Steppe Lynx. The lifelink is nice, but if you get out Regal Caracal, all your cats gain it (plus you get two Trained Caracals with the Regal). Of course no Steppe Lynx is complete until it gets its Adventuring Gear! They also love toting around a Sword of the Animist, and look good wearing Trailblazer's Boots!

Imagine if you will, your opening hand consists of Plains + Steppe Lynx + Evolving Wilds + Sol Ring + Adventuring Gear + Sigarda's Aid + Sword of the Animist. You draw your first card and see a Terramorphic Expanse. On turn two you can swing for 8. Turn three hits for 12. All with a one drop 0/1.

Having looked at my inventory I don't have a Savannah Lions but I do have some possibly appropriate 1-drops that would be pretty powerful.

Glittering Lynx would be an indestructible 4/4 unless the opponent pays 2, which they're unlikely to do early game.

Loam Lion is permanently 2/3 (so 5/6 with Arahbo) if I have a Forest.

Steppe Lynx would be a 5/6 every time a land came down.

I think Sacred Cat and Trained Caracal should be cut for Loam Lion and Steppe Lynx because your walkers provide lifelink already(Ajani Steadfast +1), so your lifelink cats are sort of a nonbo with that. Also, the two cats mentioned above can pressure the opponent's life total much quicker, while in the late game Regal Caracal can help you gain some life. Imo, a 1 mana 2/3 is far better in this deck than a 1 mana 1/1 lifelink we since you're already gaining tons of life. On a side note, Ajani, Caller of the Pride is great because it comes down on turn 3 and assuming you have a 1-2 drop, he can start pressuring their life total right away with his +1. His -2 is a great follow up to this because, say you play a turn 1 steppe lynx, turn 2 you swing and bring them to 18. Turn 3 ajani pumps lynx and you swing them down to 14 the following turn you -2 and swing in to bring them to 8 or lower, depending on your turn two play. They can potentially be as low as 2 if you play a 3/x 2 drop.

I am not sure I would say that Farseek does nothing -- but I do not think it is worse running either. Sakura-Tribe Elder would likely be better. But there are lots of options you can go with landfall. You can go for a midrange sort of build using landfall triggers on things like Steppe Lynx, Rampaging Baloths, and Plated Geopede. You can go combo with Knight of the Reliquary and Retreat to Coralhelm; or Sakura-Tribe Scout, Minamo, School at Water's Edge/Simic Growth Chamber, Retreat to Coralhelm, and Hedron Crab/Retreat to Hagra/Scrib Nibblers/Tunneling Geopede. Or you can just do the tried and true combo of Scapeshift and Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. Or you can mix and match a little bit. But before I go into terribly much detail, what exactly do you want the deck to do? I am not seeing a super cohesive theme aside from get lots of lands.

:D No problem! Cats have some insane 1-drops!

Please switch out Trained Caracal for Sacred Cat, it is so much better!

Some more fun:
