Temur Sabertooth Discussion
21 hours ago
I like the Staff of Domination and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds combo, it's nice that it makes any color, I know you have White Sun's Zenith for to use the mana, but have you thought about Rhonas the Indomitable can just mass pump the entire army (since Arahbo, Roar of the World can only do each cat once. I was trying to do something with Karametra's Acolyte and Temur Sabertooth but might be something there with Selvala, Heart of the Wilds but I dont play too many huge guys in my build, so I might be giving away more draw.
Ancient Den and Tree of Tales very smart with Puresteel Paladin adding them to my 99. Surprised you don't take advantage of Adorned Pouncer, he has double strike built in, would be really cool with the Voltron feel of the deck.
Is there a combo with Fleetfoot Panther that you have. He's definitely good 3/4 for CMC3, but his return ability could be utilized, i've tried looking for some combos but found nothing that is strong enough.
Sabertooth Nishoba is a little surprising, I get your point the built in trample and pro is good, and 8/8 with the pump, but he's still CMC 6 for a 5/5.

Thanks much! Good point regarding Steely Resolve and Lightning Greaves, not sure how I forgot about my own need to target Selvala.. Bane of Progress is a SUPER fun card, same with Realm Seekers.. I'll try them both out! I did add Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger for some fun times last night - turn 4 was Weird Harvest, get Temur Sabertooth, Wirewood Symbiote and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger - proceed to exile everything on the board.

Omnom_Locus_of_Drivethrus This comes up a lot...(LOL)
1. assemble infinite mana and draw your deck (lots of ways to do this, read the primer)
2. cast Beast Within, destroying a permanent of an opponent
3. cast Eternal Witness to return Beast Within to your hand
4. re-cast Beast Within, destroying another permanent
5. Cast Temur Sabertooth
6. Bounce Eternal Witness
7. Recast Eternal Witness & grab Beast Within
8. continue bouncing Eternal Witness to grab Beast Within, turning all their permanents into beasts
9. repeat the loop but replace Beast Within with Somberwald Stag to destroy your opponents' permanents
presumably you opponents resign due to having no permanents, if they don't, make sure you use Scroll Rack to not deck yourself
If you meant giving yourself infinite Beasts, do the same thing but you'll have to bounce Eternal Witness twice each loop to grab whatever permanent of yours you just destroyed
Honestly, I've never used this loop, I feel Concordant Crossroads or Scroll Rack + Memory Jar are better win conditions
dcoffin Turn 6 is WAY to late in a competitive meta, though it might work at a casual table, good luck

Suggestions on delaying a win until turn 6? So I can basically drop her and go off.
I made a few changes to my version to help with that..
Lifeforce to deal with black removal (use is little too narrow..)
Asceticism is sweet, but kinda pricy CMC wise to get out quickly
Another option, assuming I have the cards in hand, is dropping her early, and doing the old destroy everyone's permanents with the Staff of Domination Beast Within, Somberwald Stag, Eternal Witness and Temur Sabertooth combo - then just wait until turn 6 (not very nice, but hey)
Any other thoughts?

Come to think of it Temur Sabertooth is a substitute for the curio in the above combo but then it won't make green mana either. Both those cards are also great for reusing cascade creatures too.

Looks like a pretty sweet list! However, I would consider running a few more ways to recover and/or protect against board wipes. Eldrazi Monument is a great way to both protect your board from destruction and yourself from fliers. Temur Sabertooth is a great way to either give bounce your own creatures to save them from a board wipe, or just eke some additional value out of your etb effects. It also does silly things with a haste enabler on the board, making all kinds of silly infinites possible.
Next, there are some powerful mana producers you might want to consider. Argothian Elder synergizes very nicely with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Growing Rites of Itlimoc , and Elvish Guidance, potentially producing enormous amounts of mana. Viridian Joiner can also generate lots of mana, potentially letting you pump multiple more times with Ezuri or just go infinite with Umbral Mantle.
I feel like Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage are a little too slow for their intended purpose. Generally elfball decks want to explode early, but run out of gas later. While these cards can give you a bit of sustain, generally you'll already be running low on creatures to trigger them by the time they come down. I suggest Shamanic Revelation, Collective Unconscious, and Regal Force as great ways to draw a bunch of cards off of a board of elves, giving you additional value for when your board is cleared.
Finally, mono-green has some issues with fliers. The aforementioned Eldrazi Monument should help with that, but there's another very synergistic option available. Jagged-Scar Archers grows with your elf army, and pings off fliers when its not swinging in for tons of damage.
Hope these suggestions were helpful!

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.
Adorned Pouncer, Ajani's Pridemate, Ajani's Sunstriker, Felidar Cub, Fleecemane Lion, Hungry Lynx, Initiate's Companion, Leonin Arbiter, Leonin Relic-Warder, Leonin Shikari, Lost Leonin, Metallic Mimic, Qasali Pridemage, Scrounging Bandar, Sunspear Shikari, Whitemane Lion
Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Fleetfoot Panther, Kemba, Kha Regent, Mirri, Cat Warrior, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist, Mirror Entity, Pride Sovereign, Prowling Serpopard, Qasali Ambusher, Skyhunter Skirmisher, Stalking Leonin
Please recommend any cats i've missed!
