What kind of meta are you playing in.What is your budget.
Those are good starting points.
Add 2 other creatures instead of the death touch artifacts.
The above would make the list much more expensive and massively more competitive.
The idea is to strangle the opponents opportunities by wasting and tapping down their lands, while you drop threats with Aether Vial
I would cut the instants and sorceries to make room for them.

@RingoDingo92: Thanks for your comment and upvote! You're right, I first wanted to keep this a pure Cats deck but the benefits Stoneforge Mystic and Puresteel Paladin bring in are just too great. I can see the point in choosing Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith, but have had good games playing Arahbo, Roar of the World. In my experience, the - basically - unconditional +3/+3 each attack phase annoys players so hard early that it can be used as a tool to exert influence on others. And doubling your (presumably well equipped) attacker's power and toughness in the lategame leads to quite some giggles.
The deck ist very weak to artifact hate and shouldn't be seen as competitive in any way. My friends and I are keeping this kind of semi-competitive though and it seems well suited for that environment.

enpc Thanks for looking at it! Appreciate your time!
Now, I see what your saying, but I think Masterwork of Ingenuity and Sculpting Steel so more than you give them credit for. Masterwork, for the low cost of 1 mana, can copy any of my haste enablers or card draw equipments, or my opponent's if they get theirs out first. It's just too efficient at what it does. Sculting steel is can do all that, but it can also copy mana rocks, Mimic Vat, and most importantly, my win cons, Phyrexian Devourer and Phyrexian Processor.
Yeah Stoneforge Mystic is on the list of upgrades :)
Dragon Throne of Tarkir is sweet but I don't have many creatures to attach it to, and it takes 9 mana total to get going.
Thanks again for commenting! I value all input!
hoardofnotions welcome back friend! I guess it kinda is. the cost:power ratio is better but its only truly better if I can give it haste. I'll take another look at the devils, I think I just took them out because I never played them and wanted to try other stuff more haha

As a general rule I am still trying to stick as hard as possible to the kitty theme rather than swap out cats for better equipment deck creatures. Things like Stoneforge Mystic, Puresteel Paladin, Sun Titan, etc. are obviously briliant cards for this deck but once I start putting them in in place of cats I feel like I'm not running a cat tribal deck any more and I might as well just replace Arahbo with Sram :)
However the Bloodforged Battle-Axe is definitely on my radar, as is Open the Armory as I totally forgot it exists. From my very limited playtesting as well I can see that Hexproof is a major boon here for keeping that voltron kitty alive so Whispersilk Cloak is being seriously considered as well (as is Mask of Avacyn as a cheaper alternative).
Regarding the Lost Leonin - this is also on my radar, and I have one sitting next to me. I'm just not sure if I want to go through the Infect route or not.... If I did put it in I would also consider Grafted Exoskeleton too and it may end up being what is used with the tutors every game. I imagine it draws quite a lot of hate though....

Cool cat deck! I would move Puresteel Paladin and Stoneforge Mystic from the "maybeboard" straight to the mainboard. Both are a must for voltron equipment. Batterskull is always a great win-more equipment too. Also, I would argue that Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith is better suited at the helm than Arahbo, Roar of the World, but I'm curious to know how well the latter works anyway.

First off, sorry for the delayed response. Now onto the decklist. On the wholeThe deck feels solid. The main thing though that stands out is that you have some situational cards which feel dead outside of their niche roles.
For example, you have a slew of equipment but only 24 creatures. But then you're running Masterwork of Ingenuity but not enough big impact equipment to capitalise on it. Same goes for Sculpting Steel. A Stoneforge Mystic would fit this role much better, as you also get a body to throw.
Instead of running buff spells, you could replace them with a single Dragon Throne of Tarkir which will get you much more bang for buck with your small creatures.
As I mentioned though, on the whole the list looks good. It's just about identifying cards which serve more niche roles compared with cards which may not be as good sometimes as compared to cards which are usually solid.
I hope this helps a bit.

Any ramp that's in Potential Cuts is with the thinking that you can find more efficient ramp spells in Green. And I'm not certain how to value equipment yet, so I'm looking at the ones that seem weakest.
Potential Includes:- Eternal Witness- Sun Titan- Stoneforge Mystic- Birds of Paradise- Bloom Tender- Sakura-Tribe Elder- Farseek- Rampant Growth- Cultivate- Llanowar Elves- Elvish Mystic- Fyndhorn Elves- Path to Exile- Swords to Plowshares- Tooth and Nail- Chromatic Lantern- Selesnya Signet
