snotice thank you so much, and thank you everyone else too!!

Zooby9 - Thanks for the comment. I completely agree with you, both those Selesnya cards are fantastic. However if I start taking out cats to put them in then I no longer have a cat theme :) I love them, but (for now at least) they will have to stay out because they just aren't kitty enough! Hah.

tru13 - Thanks for the comment again. I too am still not 100% sold on Prepare / Fight but I think the untap and buff are useful enough to warrant finding space for both that as wel as Nature's Way. In the end what I need to do is lots of playtesting to decide whether it's worthwhile or not. I don't think I can work it out just by looking!

Atroxreaper and Entomo - Thanks both again, I've made a few tweaks based on your suggestions. I decided to keep the Watchers of the Dead rather than Crook of Condemnation simply for the theme!

I still haven't had much chance to playtest this deck (not much STD gets played around me) so if you guys try this in paper or online then I'm very interested to hear how it plays!

Entomo - You're totally right, forgive me - I just misread it and thought it only was a land that Initiate's Companion could untap. But yes, using it on a Pride Sovereign is certainly an interesting idea....

It might be feasible to move Cast Out to the sideboard (it has more targets than "Fight" or Nature's Way) to make room for Prepare / Fight. The thing I like about Nature's Way though is your own creature doesn't take any damage from it. I will have to see if it's possible (and worthwhile) to juggle some of the numbers to fit it in.

Thanks for more comments, Entomo!

I think Adorned Pouncer is fantastic value from Eternalize, especially if you've got one Anointed Procession out. 4/4 tokens with double strike from a card you already spent?? I'm not sure possibly untapping a land beats that but I might be wrong.

Selfless Spirit is a great card but as I've mentioned previously I'm really trying to stay away from anything that was released before KLD, otherwise it rotates out in under 3 months anyway. Same with Oath of Nissa but the Attune with Aether are gone already anyway!

I do like Prepare / Fight but I'm not sure what I'd drop for it? To me it seems that Appeal / Authority has more use at the moment and Nature's Way fills the gap from the "Fight" part as well. I guess I could try 2 of each of the dual cards, rather than a full set of 1?

fancysaurus, Atroxreaper, and tru13 - thanks all again for some great comments and contributions.

I am going to spend a bit of time later today (when I get a chance) to make a few changes to the deck again. I feel it might finally be time to remove the Attune with Aether and pop in a couple more basic land and see what we can do about other things you've mentioned. Some of them are already there or nearly there but adding a few more Sacred Cat, Adorned Pouncer, or Appeal / Authority will need a bit of jigging some numbers!

Thanks people :)

theotherzhang - Thanks for the tip. I must admit I've been slack when it comes to looking at dual coloured lands. I haven't had enough time to playtest the deck to see what the mana fixing is like but it may be worthwhile putting some of them in for sure. Probably more likely to have the Scattered Groves than the Fortified Village as the latter will rotate out pretty soon!

I also love cat decks :) If you take out the 2 Felidar Guardian then you have a standard legal deck, rather than just a casual one!

I agree with the above comment, Pride Sovereign and Adorned Pouncer are both brilliant new cats!

I like the idea of Oketra the True but she hasn't made her way in to my cat deck yet. The more I see her the more I like the idea. Finally the Rhonas's Monument is a little bit slow for a nice fast creature deck maybe? I had it in mine but took it out so I am interested to know how it goes for you.

My deck for more ideas:

Hey tru13 - I like this deck. It feels like a "cleaner" version of mine - a little more streamlined perhaps? I think I will stick with the Attune with Aether and the Longtusk Cub in mine for now but I like seeing what yours can do without them.

I think we both agree that Appeal / Authority and Heroic Intervention are great and I'm glad to see you are using Anointed Procession because I can't decide if it's still good enough or not.

I am interested to hear how this goes at your FNM after HOU release!

July 11, 2017 4:37 a.m.

OK, take two - got logged out after typing this earlier so had to type it again!

Entomo - Thank you very much for the comment! I think you're right about a lot of it.... I'm going to modify the deck again. I'll put in 3 x Metallic Mimic (forgot they work with the cat tokens coming on the board too). To make room for those I'll take out both Vizier of the Menagerie because they're actually pretty slow and I think this should be quite a fast deck, and one Anointed Procession. I'm loathe to take all of them out but I see your point about them being slow as well.

I'll then put in 2 x Appeal / Authority and take out the 2 x Fragmentize as I'm not sure how much use they will show and if we're desperate for removal of non-creatures then we've got Cast Out there.

For now I'll avoid Selfless Spirit simply because it stops being standard legal in only 3 months and everything else has until Sept 2018!

Very happy to hear thoughts on this then!

majin_shinsa - There you go, man! HOU updated. It even made it cheaper... Haha. I will be making a few more tweaks as I look through more of the HOU cards too. There might be some non-creature cards that are worth putting in but we shall see.

Please let me know how it fares online. I haven't had much chance to playtest this thing yet so all feedback is appreciated! :)

majin_shinsa - I just saw the spoiled cat commander in C17. Once I've updated this deck for HOU I'm gonna be starting the cat EDH deck :)

majin_shinsa - it's on my to do list this week! Just got in from a HOD pre-release. Drew none of the new cats!! Haha.

missmana - Thanks for the videos again :) I will study them and see what tweaks can be made. I'm hoping for some changes once I get a hold of HOU as well!

salteeBoi - haha, glad you like it! It seemed obvious to me as soon as I saw her and it turns out to be a pretty decent deck for not much money.

July 5, 2017 4:13 a.m.

missmana - I'd perhaps struggle to agree you "got stomped". You definitely lost, but a best of 1 loss to a white aggro deck.... needs more testing :) Appreciate you posting the video though, it definitely helps to improve the deck.
