Hello, sir. I am sorry this comment was so late; as I mentioned, my computer decided to discard my long previous comment, so now I have time to rewrite it. Once upon a time, I was also building this deck, so I'm happy to see one join this playgroup haha.

My thoughts:

Sculpting Steel is very, very good. It's like another copy of Masterwork of Ingenuity.

Sword of Feast and Famine and Sword of Light and Shadow are both probably better than the swords you are utilizing, if you can get your hands on either. IMHO SoF&F is probably the best of the set, except in specialized cases - doubling your mana and gaining card advantage is a potent combination. SoL&S is amazing because it protects against the best removal colors, and allows repeatable recursion. Or add them both, but I really would cut Sword of War and Peace.

The set of Kaldra equipment (Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, and Helm of Kaldra) are all good, and hilarious if you can manage to find them all since you can get a large, free-to-equip creature which will. not. die.

Even though I wouldn't remove it, be aware that Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx isn't amazing here, since you have so many colorless permanents.

Ajani, Caller of the Pride seems a tiny odd here, unless you plan to Voltron with Kemba.

Other good equipment for EDH include Empyrial Plate, Fireshrieker, Trailblazer's Boots, and Whispersilk Cloak. Nim Deathmantle is also overlooked but can be awesome. Bladed Pinions is cheap and efficient. Pennon Blade is also NUTS with Kemba's kittens. If you intend to be playing in multiplayer with this, Blade of the Bloodchief should be an auto-include. I'm not a fan of Spidersilk Net, though.

Hanna's Custody is like a cheaper, unkillable, off-the-stick Indomitable Archangel.

Personally, I like Spear of Heliod over Honor of the Pure. The ability to nuke anything that did you damage is worth the one extra mana to me. Plus it's an artifact, so you can tutor for it more easily.

Although they're both obviously very good, be aware of the sheer size of the target that Aven Mindcensor and Spirit of the Labyrinth will paint upon your head.

Although it's obviously very flavorful, I don't know if White Sun's Zenith is worth playing here. It doesn't play well with the rest of the things in the deck to me. And obviously since the rules changes, Oblation has been nerfed. Without a sac outlet or X/1 tokens, Skullclamp seems weak. Accorder's Shield seems pretty bad for a total investment of 3 mana - maybe replace it with Basilisk Collar.

Although it obviously isn't good, I thought you might appreciate this: one deck I saw online with Kemba used Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth with Nightmare Lash (and Cabal Coffers just for good measure). I laughed when I noticed that.

Eldrazi Monument and/or Akroma's Memorial allow your kitten swarm to beat people to death without worrying about blockers.

And finally, any deck using snow-covered lands should be playing Scrying Sheets, no exceptions.

Hope this was all helpful, haha!

Daedalus19876 Thanks for all the awesome feedback! As you know, both White tokens and Voltron are outside my normal playstyle, so I guess a lot of the details I still haven't gotten down yet. A few questions though:

Can I even play Cabal Coffers? It has in its text, so I'm pretty sure its color ID is Black... Nightmare Lash + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is pretty hilarious though

Oblation, while nerfed due to the Tuck Rule, still hits everything else just fine. Maybe it can hit an Equipment/Aura on their commander, or another big fat creature about to punch my face. I think it's still worth a slot.

I've run Spear of Heliod in my Don't Touch Me for a short time, and found the nuke effect kind of lackluster and mana prohibitive. Yes, it can work as a deterrent, but it's very easy to see coming and prepare for.

Why does White Sun's Zenith not play well? It makes lots of kittens at instant speed, and shuffles so you can use it again. I do agree that Skullclamp is out of place though.

(facepalm) Nope, Cabal Coffers is illegal in mono-white. Looking back at the deck that tried that, they were corrected in the comments but didn't adjust their OP. Whoops. But Nightmare Lash + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is hilarious heh.

Re:Oblation - still, the original appeal of that card was that it could hit commanders. For other applications, to me it seems that removing the permanent is rarely worth giving them two cards...

Re:Spear of Heliod - you make a compelling point, though if for one extra white mana you get to force your opponents to play in a way that advances their goals less immediately, that seems worth it to me. But true, it isn't a huge benefit. Also, I just thought of Obelisk of Urd, which might help even more since most of your pump-requiring creatures are cats.

To me WSZ seemed non-optimal here because all of your equipment is rather mana-intensive. I doubt you'll have the 7 or 8 mana available to play WSZ, or if you do, I suspect it might be better spent on equipping more things to get more cats each turn.

With such a ridiculous number of artifacts, maybe a Semblance Anvil? It's better than it seems, unless it gets destroyed quickly, and there isn't that much artifact hate in our meta, and it's not a huge threat.

Looks good though!
