Wild Nacatl Discussion

You could probably squeeze it into some kind of zoo deck with Burning-Tree Emissary, Reckless Bushwhacker, Kird Ape, and Wild Nacatl for that price if you really tried. Zoo used to be very good so this seems like a solid place to start.

Hopefully you find some of this useful.
The reason why Lost Leonin and Archangel of Thune/Spike Feeder work consistently is the tutoring. Under budget constraints you must include Eladamri's Call it's the best tutor, and it's only a few $'s. Also you must include Congregation at Dawn.
Wild Nacatl has no place in this deck, hes a 2/2 (at best) for with no Lifelink, he doesn't provide us anything, and is a dead draw late game.
Key to the City makes no sense, you have little/no recursion, just use Expedition Map to tutor Rogue's Passage and perhaps include a Crop Rotation. Instead use Trample, by including Behemoth Sledge also gives additional Lifelink.
Taj-Nar Swordsmith is a great budget equipment tutor for Skullclamp, Swiftfoot Boots, Bloodforged Battle-Axe, late in the game he can tutor the Grafted Exoskeleton as well. If Bloodforged Battle-Axe is in, certainly Kemba, Kha Regent can make her way in.
Pride Sovereign is decent as well, I've been testing him out at the moment because of his speed (slow).
Since you'll be slower, can use reset cards like Divine Reckoning.
Condemn is a good budget removal too (situational).
I would include a Sunbond doubles your chance of drawing / tutor into Spike Feeder Infinite Life combo anyway. It's good with the other lifelink Loxodon Warhammer the Lifelink cats, Archangel of Thune etc. Since you tutor less, have more probability of drawing into it. If you do draw it, just tutor the Spike Feeder.
Green Sun's Zenith without a Dryad Arbor isn't as good, because it loses its Modularity as a Mana Ramp & Tutor. There are still some targets though like Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist or Spike Feeder or Prowling Serpopard, etc. Still ok, just not as good.
Lifecrafter's Bestiary is a little high mana cost, but it's a decent draw engine.
Rampant Growth is a good cheap tutor.
Eldritch Evolution is another cheap tutor I've been toying around with.
Some ideas to consider anyway. +1.

@Dismal: Yes & no.. A single shockland for some sideboard tech doesnt make this Naya Burn.. Naya Burn has a more painful landbase, runs Atarka's Command, doesnt always run Lightning Helix, and in some rare instances runs Wild Nacatl..

The most obvious suggestions are Wild Nacatl and Scavenging Ooze, but more significantly I think you need to cut the blue, running to four colours is pushing both your creature and lands to meet the colour requirements. What I'd do is cut 3x Retreat to Coralhelm 3x Birds of Paradise 2x Lotus Cobra and instead have 4x of each Nacatl and Ooze. Dropping to 3 colours should make your mana a little more consistent too.
Outside of that you could try Noose Constrictor to let you discard some lands before playing Knight of the Reliquary, it could be a reasonable play. I guess the other issue is that you don't really have any evasion; a flying, trample or menace threat might be useful...
I hope that is of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

You are runnning a high number of lands for an aggro/midrange deck - I would trim it down to 21-22 and replace them with 2 more bolts. I would also try to find room for Collected Company, maybe cut the Ajani, Caller of the Prides? They don't really add a lot to an aggro deck and are awful without other creatures to support. I agree that Loam Lions are worth consideration but idk what to replace with them. Maybe change the numbers around a bit: 2 Regal Caracal (high CMC), 2 Qasali Pridemage (good but discourages attacking with the team which is what you want to be doing) and +4 Loam Lion for another efficient 1 drop.

Is there any reason you're not running Wild Nacatl?

Cool idea! Your deck is mostly based on standard cards, but in modern, there are a lot of great options for a cat-themed deck.
You can consider the following cards:
Wild Nacatl (works best if you splash some red)
