gekkoe on Maelstrom Wanderer Combo

By the way, you may want to consider adding Drift of Phantasms. It tutors Food Chain and it can be gotten with Worldly Tutor, Sylvan Tutor (which you might also consider adding), Imperial Recruiter, etc.

If you get enough creature density in your list you might also consider Tishana, Voice of Thunder and/or Soul of the Harvest for some added card draw or, if you'd prefer to keep it a bit cheaper there's Glimpse of Nature.

Also, though it isn't the most wonderful card in the world I find that Pestermite is worthy of adding because it's fetchable with Imperial Recruiter.

I ended up overhauling your mana base a bit in the list I'm working on, but I assume the changes would be rather obvious and that you probably kept yours the way it is because of card availability?

Eldritch Evolution is a great way to grab your edgewalker from an apostle. Sylvan Tutor and Worldly Tutor are both great was to jumpstart the combo as well.

Enlightened Tutor grabs most of your engine cards that aren't edgewalker.

Krosan Grip is awful slow compared to something like Nature's Claim. sure it can get countered but you can get it in at just about any time.

Vanquisher's Banner can replace lifecrafter's bestiary. Naming human gets it on almost all your creatures.

Autumn's Veil and Silence will both give you a turn to try and combo off. Grand Abolisher is great for this and also on-theme!

38 lands seems hilariously high, imo. you can probably safely cut at least 3 lands.

I'll probably do a followup post when I think of more stuff for this.

Spirits on WonderCats

4 weeks ago

Hi JAPuckett85,

Here's some ideas for you, keep in mind I'm still working on my deck, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats. I also found MegaMatt13 deck helpful when starting out my build Arahbo's Killer Kittens.

I focused on Lost Leonin and the power of the Eminence trigger with him. Ajani, Caller of the Pride is perfect with him to win, but I also found Duelist's Heritage (Works good with most other cats too!) and Berserk (Works with double strike cats or to remove an opponents creature), both make him more powerful. The nice thing of Duelist's Heritage is that it can be tutored with Enlightened Tutor or Idyllic Tutor or other like Academy Rector whatever your preference.

In my testing too I found that good cats over lots of cats was more efficient, thus why I play Sylvan Tutor, Eladamri's Call and Worldly Tutor which pull either Lost Leonin or Felidar Sovereign for the most part. I also run Green Sun's Zenith usually pulling Rhonas the Indomitable or Fleecemane Lion, another viable good target would be Birds of Paradise which can act as another CMC 2 mana ramp, but I haven't got that in just yet, still testing.

I also found Triumph of the Hordes to work good with the Cat + Eminence theme. I have a Sword of Feast and Famine in my binder, but chose not to include it for now because the protection prevents the Eminence trigger, but it's a good sword, if you have something to do with the extra mana. The problem is for Arahbo, Roar of the World you can overload the cats and then still play during post-combat main phase. I don't run a cat horde/token synergy so that's why I choose not to run it.

Rhonas the Indomitable is awesome, 5/5 indestructible deathtouch and he can attack with ANY cat + eminence trigger! Talk about Aggro tempo for . Darksteel Forge is pretty expensive, and I dont think the artifacts are the key to winning with Arahbo, Roar of the World in my opinion. Puresteel Paladin is amazing for the draw! Keep him! Trailblazer's Boots I'd honestly rather put more trample enablers instead, but I've seen other deck play the evasion angle too.

I find Grafted Exoskeleton terrorizes opponents much better (and faster) than a Quietus Spike. The deathtouch is nice, but why not just kill the player?

I'd rather have some more draw, like Hunter's Insight than a VERY High CMC Jareth, Leonine Titan. Only gets the +7 when blocking, so not really the greatest. I know he's hard to remove, and has the built in evasion, but too much.

I've had good success with Chameleon Colossus, his built in ability means you don't need to cast Arahbo, Roar of the World and he can proc well with things like Duelist's Heritage, Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Berserk and Equipment. I elected to go Stonehewer Giant over Stoneforge Mystic but won't discourage you there, she is awesome.

Don't see a lot of abilities, like Mirari's Wake in your deck, so not sure the need for White Sun's Zenith what some 2/2 cats are going to really accomplish for you, except with maybe a Triumph of the Hordes or something. I'm trying to work Metallic Mimic back into my deck, In testing I found him too slow for my taste, but he would be good with White Sun's Zenith as well.

I find Loxodon Warhammer better than Behemoth Sledge because of the extra offense, but with Felidar Sovereign I play both, also like the Basilisk Collar just hate doesn't have any +X to the power, but the deathtouch helps with the evasion factor anyway.

I've had others question my use of Pride Sovereign, I'm undecided on him right now, just lack of Cats with real utility why he remains pretty much. Puresteel Paladin + Bloodforged Battle-Axe is an awesome interaction, but in testing I found Bloodforged Battle-Axe was a little too slow without him around for me.

I don't play as much control, which is why things like Godsend don't make the 99. Cat's aren't here to block, unless you run a Qasali Ambusher most can't even block flyers Skyhunter Skirmisher obviously being an exception, and let's be real, noone is going to walk into an unfavorable blocking situation and have anything of value exiled with Godsend. Accepting cats dont block well, it means it's your opponents choice which creatures to get exiled or not, It doesn't hit opponents commanders, and unless they are playing a unburial type deck, with commander format being singleton it's not stopping recast of anything in the majority of circumstances. Anyway just my thought on that.

Best of luck. I'm always continuing to develop, so hopefully with have some better insights in the future. +1

Spirits on EDH Arahbo! Roar of the Kitten Overlord

1 month ago

Hi Bou,

Fellow Arahbo, Roar of the World player, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats.

I play quite a different style of Arahbo, Roar of the World deck, but thought I'd offer some suggestion and get some insight. I'm still trying to make mine a functional deck that compete in Multi-player consistently.

Do you find that by going the creature (Cat) forward approach, you end up with several under-powered cats. For example, Enlightened Ascetic, Grizzled Leotau, Leonin Armorguard, Scythe Leopard (He could benefit from fetch lands like Windswept Heath or Wooded Foothills, Scythe Tiger (can't be Eminence, I get hes big, but he is what he is and sets you back a land), Stalking Tiger, Wild Leotau.

What about tutoring the high-powered cats, with something like Eladamri's Call for sure, or Green Sun's Zenith. In my build im trying forward planning tutoring with Worldly Tutor and Sylvan Tutor to get into my Lost Leonin or Felidar Sovereign.

I know you run Descendants' Path so more cats is preferable, but Im always worried about a balance, drawing an extra bad cat that doesn't do much, or pulling a good cat that pushes forward my board position, if that makes sense?

What about Metallic Mimic, with so many Cats i think he would be good for you, and is an aggro cat? Would something like Vanquisher's Banner (even though higher CMC) be better than an Always Watching because of the extra draw? I think it's pretty high CMC, but the vigilence isn't key. Stuff like Mirari's Wake or Spear of Heliod totally make sense to me though.

No Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist, he provides evasion, and protection from counter-attacks. I think you should get him in there. He was in the C17 deckbox.

I see your protecting your cats with Faith's Reward / Make a Stand type stuff, what do you think about Teferi's Protection? Seems multi-utility as well.

I would run a Triumph of the Hordes with so many cats, the +1 to each is going to defeat some opponents. +1.

PS: Really like the Privileged Position

Spirits on My Actual-Factual Pet Deck

Hey MementoMuffin, finding your deck helpful for trying to construct a viable Tier 3 Arahbo, Roar of the World deck Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats.

Couple asks and questions,

Dromoka's Command is modular, but do you find it's under-powered on most modes? Do you find Glare of Subdual a bad conversion? Losing an attacker/blocker for 1 tap? Nissa, Vital Force doesn't seem to have the right Synergy with what the cats are doing? Do you find more utility in the Vorrac Battlehorns for the lower cost than Behemoth Sledge with the lifelink but with no Felidar Sovereign I get it?

I feel Aura Shards give better control then loading up on Sundering Growth/Nature's Claim maybe a Regrowth but there isn't many Flash Cats so perhaps you need the instant removal of it?

You seem to be token pumping / creating, why no Brimaz, King of Oreskos?

Sol Ring and Sylvan Library are key cards in my build. I'm playing more equipment focus, but it's definitely not working yet, still playing with it, any suggestions would be appreciated.

Is Sylvan Library not worth a spot? Sylvan Tutor might be good too, if only for that Sylvan-Name theme.
