Soul's Attendant and Soul Warden are nice additions as another Essence Warden, for even more triggers. As a backup for your commander you can add Ajani's Pridemate and Ajani, Strength of the Pride

Love your deck friend :)

I think this is a fun and interesting challenge to make lifegain cats good in modern. But first thing you should do is focus to clarify the identity of the deck. Leaning into Cats let's you better utilize a great lord. But you want multiple small cats maube tokens as there are a couple good ones to later pump for a lethal swing or tempo your opponent out makeing spot removal worse. Or lifegain which can play the Soul Warden effects and other noncat lifegain payoffs like your Ajani's Pridemate

Suggestions: I assume you are trying to stay budget most of these are a couple dollars. There might be a few more expensive cards that could be great with some deck building concessions like going green for more cats and Collected Company or focusing 1 2 and 3 drops and play Aether Vial

Kaheera, the Orphanguard pump cats. Can also be used as companion with some deck building restrictions

Leonin Arbiter All hail CAT JESUS. Seriously. It's a great card to slow combo decks otherwise it's a 2/2 body for 2. Worst case it deserves a Sideboard slot

Leonin Vanguard 1 drop. Gains 1 life a turn when you have 3 total creatures great curve starter for a cat deck

Regal Caracal create 2 cats. Then all your cats gain lifelink. Synergies for days

Ajani, Strength of the Pride - make Ajani's Pridemate ultimate is not impossible to clear the way so you can swing for game. +gains life. All great things.

Sideboard tech

Lion Sash graveyard hate on a cat. Or pump another creature

Felidar Retreat stick this vs control and it can take over a game

Seht's Tiger 4 drop neat vs damage based combos. Interesting but not great.

CrazyDanPsycho, thank you for your interest in my Giada deck. I thought I would take a look at yours and see if I had any suggestions.

Now, I totally understand the attachment to Avacyn. (I actually still have an Avacyn deck, too.) But the shift in commanders calls for a shift in the creature base. Avacyn does not really care about what type of creatures you are running. Giada does. She wants you to run angels. I don't know your budget is, so take whatever suggestions you think will fit with it.

Breathkeeper Seraph is good for recurring Giada (or any other special angel). Angelic Sleuth makes good use of your creatures with counters dying. Norn's Choirmaster proliferates your counters. Thraben Watcher gives a bonus and vigilance. Admonition Angel outdoes your Leonin Relic-Warder and is an angel. Angel of condemnation is another removal angel. And finally, a non-angel that helps you, even in a Giada deck, Bishop of Wings, which gives lifegain and tokens. For more token fun, and generally producing tokens at a better rate than Parhelion or Moonsilver Spear, we have Entreat the Angels, Finale of Glory, and Starnheim Unleashed. You are also missing the best life-gain Ajani. Ajani, Strength of the Pride.

If you want suggestions on what to cut, just let me know!

Thanks for posting. Caran_Lyg. I think I’m going to stick with Ajani, Strength of the Pride as my impromptu boardwipe. Fumigate is a lot cheaper, which would be great, but the problem is it hits all creatures—including our own. That limits its usefulness to select instances. Ajani wipes just the opponent’s stuff.
