Sacred Cat is a strictly better Trained Caracal. Maybe Healer's Hawk when it comes out?

I'd recommend switching Leonin Vanguard with something like Loam Lion or Savannah Lions. Even Trained Caracal will be more consistent lifegain than the Vanguard.

Also Condemn, Blessed Alliance, and Seal Away are pretty useful removal spells.

And lastly I'd recommend Heroic Intervention or Brave the Elements as board wipe protection. Looks like a really fun deck.

Sorry rofldiekatz,

Should have replied to the other comment too.

Trained Caracal is a 1/1 for , the key is his Lifelink. A Turn 1, 1/1 Lifelink +3/+3 Eminence (4 damage + 4 life = 8 life differential) seems like an early, and easily removable threat. Often a Terminate or of that nature will remove him early, which means Lost Leonin has 1 less removal to contend with.

Wily Bandar is a 1/1, with Emminence, he can output 4. He also has built in protection for (ridiculously high), which makes him less of a threat and target. Not going to waste a removal on a 1/1 with 4 life differential. not going to waste a removal on a 1/1 that can dodge it (for CMC3), so doesn't draw it out early removal, whereas an unchecked Trained Caracal can get a decent differential left unchecked. Mid-range, he would be a much better blocker, but without flying or reach not sure how useful he would be, but more so than Trained Caracal. A turn 8 Trained Caracal is not exciting don't get me wrong, but if I can lifelink 4 or 5 progressing towards a Felidar Sovereign that's ok. You could make the argument Trained Caracal can go, and I have considered removing him too, but not for Wily Bandar. I think maybe a Scrounging Bandar that can pump an Infect guy (hes CMC2 though), or a Whitemane Lion to combo. My sub-theme is life, like my infinite life mid-range combo, trying to Chord of Calling in a Felidar Sovereign at opponents EOT, so he kind of supports that too.

This deck is a work in process for sure, and LOVE the suggestions, if you have more. I've tried these guys earlier on when I was going aggro, so found out the challenges with them the hard way. I know this deck can get better!

Making a few updates to make the deck more resilient.

Out:

2 Forest, Longtusk Cub, Trained Caracal, Sword of Feast and Famine pro green is bad with arahbo. Garruk Wildspeaker great card but no real synergy with this deck. Initiate's Companion. Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip it will be too difficult to flip, and wont be able to do so reliably.

In

Phantom Nishoba, Heroic Intervention, Aura Shards, Austere Command, Tower Above, Urza's Incubator, Council's Judgment, Reliquary Tower
