Sunspear Shikari Discussion

You've got 2 Sunspear Shikari listed here.

Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Felidar Cub and Regal Caracal all seem like they should have a home here. Along with Anointed Procession to further the token creation.

If you play with other tribal decks, Obelisk of Urd and/or Hall of Triumph may be better for you than Coat of Arms.

Dictate of Heliod is good for a flash buff to all creatures. Spear of Heliod is not flashed and is smaller.

One of my personal favorite, but under valued cards, is Dragon Throne of Tarkir. It can work well with voltron-y token decks like this.

I'd also look at Godsend and Sword of the Animist.

To me, Brave the Sands is comparable to Intangible Virtue. Really depends on how many tokens you can get out, I guess.

If you want to further your life gain, Alhammarret's Archive and Staff of the Sun Magus might be interesting.

If you aren't set on ONLY cat tokens, I'd look at Raise the Alarm and Secure the Wastes for instant speed tokens, if you think you need that kind of thing.

Aside from all that, IMO, you've got a lot of land for a pretty low curve. On the otherhand, you don't have much in the way of mana rocks so 41 lands may be a good idea. :P

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx likes mono colored decks with lots of devotion.

I am kinda iffy about Sigil of the Empty Throne in this. If you can get out, you've only got 8 other cards that could trigger it and it doesn't make cats.

To bad Knight of the White Orchid isn't a 'cat.' :/

Cool deck! If you're looking for upgrades, Honor of the Pure and Brave the Elements are really good additions. Leonin Den-Guard and Sunspear Shikari both seem out of place when you only have 2 equipments on the deck, good replacements would be Ajani's Pridemate and Ajani's Sunstriker since you already have some lifegain going on.

You need to add more cards that are good in EDH, and add some ramp beyond Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion. My suggestion for cheap ramp includes:

Hedron Archive, Mind Stone, Marble Diamond, Worn Powerstone etc.

Other cards you may want to consider are:

White Sun's Zenith, Hero of Bladehold, Sun Titan, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Mentor of the Meek, True Conviction, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Martial Coup, Oblivion Ring, Captain of the Watch, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Recruiter of the Guard, Heliod, God of the Sun, Knight of the White Orchid, Mirror Entity, Mother of Runes, Emeria Shepherd, Bastion Protector, Oblation, Secure the Wastes, Austere Command, Open the Armory, Decree of Justice, Caged Sun, Obelisk of Urd, Dictate of Heliod, Shared Triumph, Elspeth Tirel, Secluded Steppe, Buried Ruin, Ghost Quarter, Rogue's Passage, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Kor Haven, Divine Sacrament, Bygone Bishop.

I would cut cards from the "Terrible" bracket first. They have no place in most EDH decks.

Spirit of the Hearth is an awesome cat that comes with a pretty relevant ability in EDH.

Oreskos Explorer helps pull lands from your library, plus you can grab nonbasic Plains.

Ajani's Pridemate is a solid 2-drop that synergises with all of your lifegain.

Sunspear Shikari is another small powerhouse, but it depends on if you feel like you can consistently equip it.

Leonin Skyhunter is again a solid 2-drop, but double white and lack of other abilities might make it unfit.

Sigarda's Aid is good if you want to push more towards an equipment theme.

Ajani's Sunstriker is another cheap cat with synergy.

Swiftfoot Boots is an equipment I definitely recommend. Speed and protection are always useful.

Loxodon Warhammer is another solid equipment.

Enlightened Ascetic is a cat with a very relevant enters-the-battlefield ability.

Kemba's Skyguard is another cool cat.

Sword of Vengeance is the cheapest one out of the Sword of X and Y cycle. (Yes, it's technically not a part of the cycle, but it's still 70% as strong as one).

Thanks for the deck props, Teufell!

Do only Kor have that kind of synergy? Nope! There's a lot of really fun 'tribal' decks. Most competitive are Faeries, Elves and Merfolk, but there are a lot of solid tribes. Flavorful and fun!

Synergy specifically with artifacts? Ehh, not that seem as strong in Equipment specifically. Cats, maybe... Kemba, Kha Regent, Leonin Den-Guard, Sunspear Shikari... Soldiers make a strong case... Weapons Trainer, Steelshaper Apprentice (and some of these overlap tribes)

For just artifacts, Vedalken come to mind Chief Engineer, Dispersal Technician, Etherium Sculptor, Grand Architect, Master of Etherium to name a few, but I haven't seen anything 'competitive' from a tribal standpoint... maybe I should try that... Could be a fun challenge.

I would take out Sungrace Pegasus, Kor Duelist, Sunspear Shikari, and Gift of Immortality for 2 Puresteel Paladin, 2 Sigarda's Aid 4 Brave the Elements or Apostle's Blessing, and 1 Godsend or Grappling Hook. If you want you could try to go kor tribal but that's more expensive. Overall great deck!
