Agreed finally a new all-star cat for the deck! Kutzil, Malamet Exemplar is protection / reduces disruption and draws cards if the creature with Eminence deals combat damage. This is an auto-include cat.

Sovereign Okinec Ahau probably won't make the cut, not really a +1 counters matter deck. It's not quite enough for infect, so Lost Leonin 2 + Eminence 3 + Sovereign Okinec Ahau 3 = 8 poison only. I feel it's similar to the reason that Ajani, Sleeper Agent hasn't playtested well (I tried him for testing, then took out, then put back in for flavor, but his +1 is just no good, and can't seem to get to his ultimate).

Sovereign Okinec Ahau it does distribute 3 counters (minimum), or more if you have some equipment attached to creatures. doesn't give haste like Halana and Alena, Partners or any evasion or protection. It needs Modified creatures have Ward , or Modified creatures have Trample, or Cats get +1/+1 (being a cat lord means every cat would get a +1 counter when it attacks), something to justify the MV4.

I would argue Kutzil, Malamet Exemplar is the 3rd best cat in the deck now! This deck just needs more cats that matter! They need Questing Beast to be oracle to a Cat Beast :).

Excellent suggestions.

Oh and forgot to point out: for some reason Ajani, Sleeper Agent is listed as 6 CMC spell instead of 4...

I'd personally cut Blightsteel Colossus due to it's high cost or Sensei's Divining Top as I don't see much usage for it (aside from filtering top 3 for Ajani, Sleeper Agent's +1, but he's more for his Ultimate to spread counters).

Also I don't like Urza's Incubator in this deck: 13 creatures benefit from it fully (I count Atraxa after 1st commander tax), 6 benefit only partially and 2 are not affected at all.

From my experience Venerated Rotpriest is alright: he can pressure early 1/1s into either not blocking or blocking unfavorably. And later his main usage is to chump block or deter removal (mainly from Atraxa, as we are speaking of established board). I wonder if he could work as a 2nd copy to Glistener Elf because I find that low amount of creatures quite astounding: it could often lead to mulligans because of lack of early pressure.

I've also noticed that in my games it's quite important to have high count of creatures with Flying, so Pestilent Syphoner proved to be quite useful either for early posion counters or blocking Flying creatures later. Btw, could you tell me your experience with Viral Drake? How is it performing?

The drama of the spoiler planeswalkers being compleated is more interesting to me than their actual characters, so it's all good by me. Was never terribly interesting in them.

If Kaito or The Wanderer get compleated, though, I will not be happy. I loved their arc in Neon Dynasty.

The biggest thing I want from this set is to see a fully Phyrexian Ajani. I don't care what card it's on or what it does. I just want to see it. Ajani, Sleeper Agent isn't Phyrexian enough (I know he's a sleeper agent and had to be undercover but still!!).

TheoryCrafter When is Ikoria 2 coming up? I thought the post-war sets for next year were Eldraine and Ixalan?

legendofa except, there are two cards with phyrexian mana in Standard right now. Ajani, Sleeper Agent and Tamiyo, Compleated Sage

Hence, I conclude they're generally willing to print them, but I doubt there will be more free spells or color breaks (possible, but unlikely).
