Adorned Pouncer

Creature — Cat

Double Strike

Eternalize (, Exile this card from your graveyard: Create a token that's a copy of it, except it's a 4/4 black Zombie Cat with no mana cost. Eternalize only as a sorcery.)

GabrielHK97 - Always love a good cat deck! I have actually made something very similar with the cat tribal with a heavy token focus (Feline Feelings). If I would to make some suggestions...

  • I would swap out Wild Nacatl for Sacred Cat. Wild Nacatl is a great card but since you are only running 8x Mountains and are kinda going for token production, tough to beat Sacred Cat.

  • I am surprised by the running of Ghostly Prison in this deck as that is a very defense card in a very aggressive deck. I would personally focus more on the aggression. For example, in my deck I added in Parallel Lives and Anointed Procession to really make that token production work for me.

  • Don't get me wrong, I love Path to Exile as it is super cheap and powerful but I also hate how it ramps the opponent. You might experiment with some other removal/interaction spells that maybe have less of a downside like Fateful Absence.

  • If you do decide to drop mana, Canopy Vista and Gavony Township could be some potential additions.

  • Still kinda land related, you are running alot of tap lands...8 total at the moment with a potential 12 if you do not have the right stuff in hand. Might be worth looking at some other options like filter, shock, or fetch lands.

  • One card I would highly recommend for any cat themed deck is Esika's Chariot. I got turned onto this card by looking at another deck here and it is very similar to Collected Company except it will never wiff like Collected Company can. Plus, it can copy your existing tokens like the eternalized version of Adorned Pouncer.

Cool deck and happy brewing!

Love the deck! I have been tinkering with a cat token deck for a bit now and after reading through some of your trials and tribulations, I have some ideas of how to improve my deck (Feline Feelings).

Esika's Chariot looks like a beast and I like your decision to run that Collected Company. Its synergy with a deceased Adorned Pouncer would be potent.

I also liked your assessment of Regal Caracal. I do love that card but at 5 CMC, it feels so tough to play at times. I am currently playing two copies in my deck currently but I think I will learn from you and drop it down to a single copy as well.

If you truly want it to be aggro I would lower the curve a bit. Skyhunter Skirmisher isn't that great and pretty slow, I recommend Adorned Pouncer. It's only two mana, and has an eternalize ability to get a 4/4 double strike late game.

I highly recommend splashing red, for the best one drop aggro cat of all time Wild Nacatl. It also gives you access to 4x Lightning Bolt which you probably want, and maybe some other classic zoo cards like Atarka's Command.

Conclave Tribunal is most definitely not what you want to running for removal in an aggro deck. The card is quite slow, and tapping your creatures to cast it means you can't attack with those creatures. If you stay in GW i recommend Path to Exile, and if you splash red I'd run Prismatic Ending to supplement bolt.

The manabase needs work. 25 lands is a lot, even for control decks. Definitely way too many here. I recommend around 22. You probably want more duals as well. I don't know what your budget is, but here are some reasonably priced duals: Overgrown Farmland, Branchloft Pathway  Flip. If you're trying to keep the deck pretty budget I wouldn't bother running snarl lands and would run these two duals instead.

If you don't have a budget I'd go ahead with the red splash and run fetchlands like Windswept Heath and Arid Mesa, along with 2 other shocks Sacred Foundry and Stomping Ground.

Always great to see another Arahbo deck! Have you considered Adorned Pouncer? It’s great with Arahbo and has been the surprise MVP in a few of my games!

Omniscience_is_life - As much as I adore Kargan Intimidator, and have been interested in building a pseudo-warriors tribal deck including him, I’m not sure this is the place for him, because my other warriors: Pelt Collector & Gruul Spellbreaker already have trample. I do wonder if maybe he has a place in modern with Wild Nacatl? I’m also hesitant of Adorned Pouncer, only because it doesn’t grow my 1-drops on curve. Maybe an Embercleave deserves a slot though?

I really appreciate your attention brought to Ghor-Clan Rampager and your suggestion of replacing it with CoCo. I’m surprised I didn’t think of it myself, lol. Thank you so much for your feedback!

I have exactly zero experience with Pioneer, but I like what you're doing here from a commander perspective!

Since I have such little knowledge of the format, you ought to take all my suggestions with several grains of salt; but here's what I've got:

I wonder if Fleecemane Lion is worthy of a playset--would a Kargan Intimidator (can give Pelt Collector trample!), or Adorned Pouncer (also a cat lol, and works well w/Ghor-Clan Rampager) be a worthy replacement?

Speaking of Ghor-Clan Rampager (albeit the first mention was parenthetical, but surely it counts!), I don't love it as a 4-of--so much mana, even if it can be activated for cheaper. A few Collected Company could reeeaally help give this deck some gas, and that seems like it would take the same slot given mana cost.

Glad to see people playing non-commander formats, it can get a little stale with just that sometimes ;3

Always happy to see a cat deck.

Have you considered Brimaz, King of Oreskos ? He's a cracked card if not answered immediately. Adorned Pouncer is also great.

For the one drop slot, I prefer Leonin Vanguard over Sacred Cat .

Also, all your creatures are cmc 3 or less. I would definitely consider cutting the 2x Chariots (they don't look that great tbh) and try to fit in 4 Collected Company .

I'm also not sure why you have 3x Rancor and 2x Madcap skills -- I feel like they would be a lot better in a heroic-type cat tribal with Vanguard of Brimaz and Tethmos High Priest . They don't seem to fit here (maybe I should try to revive my cat tribal deck with these hmm?).

Prismatic Ending is a great removal card for any deck running white and 3+ colors, I'd definitely consider cutting a few paths and adding it here.

When you finally make a sideboard, Prowling Serpopard would be really effective against any deck that runs counterspells.
