Sunspear Shikari Discussion

This list seems kind of hybrid or conflicted. It's got some equipment to help suit up, but it's also got a pretty aggressive bunch of creatures. Seems to be able to swing either voltron or aggro. It would probably be worth it to trim down the list of 1-ofs and really streamline the strategy.

If you want some aggression, Leonin Armorguard seems right up your alley. Nice curve-topper that pumps your team on etb.

Pouncing Jaguar is really aggressive, especially if you drop it turn one. The echo cost is negligible in case you were planning on playing a tapland T2 and didn't have another onedrop. Scythe Tiger is a similar card that's an uberstronk onedrop with a substantial drawback.

Leonin Den-Guard and Sunspear Shikari are the two best equippable cats. If you want to push that archetype more, I'd fill these out to playsets.

Other cards worth considering: Penumbra Bobcat and Sacred Cat both provide resistance to Edict effects, which is super important if you plan going voltron.

Cheers!

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

2 months ago

Posting this Cats that don't suck list to research later, as MegaMatt13 commented, Pride Sovereign is a little weak, plus I find that 24 cats is a little short, although I've won games without playing a cat Stonehewer Giant + Puresteel Paladin + Grafted Exoskeleton.

I excluded many aggro cats because I feel that's not the right way to win in a multi-player format.

I'm sure I've missed some cats. I also have added some cats that do suck, but evaluating combos with them.

Nice deck :)

Overall I'd suggest bringing down the CMC of your kittens. It will make the deck run faster and allow you to cast a cat and equip equipment on the same turn.

Great cats that have worked for me:

Adorned Pouncer

Sacred Cat

Skyhunter Skirmisher

Sunspear Shikari

Leonin Skyhunter

You can find my deck at: Arahbo's Killer Kittens. I know it's Arahbo but there is crossover on the good cats.

Hope this helps!

The deck as a whole feels good, but a little bit unfocused. I know you haven't spent a bunch of time on it so that makes sense, but I'll just make a couple comments:

What Nazahn wants, in an ideal board-state, is to have as many creatures as possible each equipped with a single equipment. I can't think of any ways to generate equipment without costing a card (Sram and Puresteel aside) and so generally we're going to want to cast a creature, cast one equipment, and equip it.

This sounds weird to point out because it's obvious, but what it means is that we can't get a ton of use out of tokens because our creatures are best when suited up, and that means we want to want to suit them up, which isn't the case for random 1/1 lifelinks. Instead I think the focus should be (a focus you've already somewhat developed) playing great creatures that are resilient and hit hard, that only get better when given buffs. Balan, Fleecemane, Oketra, Raksha, Silverblade, Skyhunter, and Sun Titan are great example of this already in your list. Mirri, Cat Warrior, Sunspear Shikari, Adorned Pouncer, Mirran Crusader, Aerial Responder, and even Lone Rider  Flip are cards you might want to consider if you go this route.

I know that the obvious issue with this strategy is that it doesn't work with your commander on the field, but if you can't cast Nazahn for whatever reason then reverting to a voltron strategy is so easy anyway that it seems like a low-risk to try and aim for the very high ceiling of his ability.

With that in mind, I think the tokens theme in the deck (which is already a little underdeveloped) can be cut or very reduced. It's an easy way to develop board state, but I think if you cut the token themes for some more resilient single-body threats and a green-based card draw suite, you will find that you're more consistent and synergistic with Nazahn at the end of it.

Your equipment suite seems strong, I like it a lot. Stoneforge Masterwork might get cut alongside the tokens theme, but other than that I don't think i have anything to say, you've pretty much included everything I would've. I really like infiltration lens but the anti-synergy with Nazahn probably keeps it out of this list.

Bastion Protector - strong or unnecessary? On the one hand, Nazahn can always use his hammer for indestructible. On the other hand, this way you can make something else indestructible. Your call.

Also Armory Automaton seems pretty mediocre unless i've missed something, but you probably already know that :P

I hope any of this was helpful, feel free to ignore. :)
