I think this deck could use an Arahbo, Roar of the World . More support for the cats!

Omniscience_is_life will tell you about my experience with the deck and its improvements. With an explosive start it was good for me, but it is difficult in the low turns, I played against a friend's deck Arahbo, Roar of the World and finished 2-1, but what I could feel is that I suffer low turns a lot (between shift 1 to 4). In multiplayer format facing my deck to inalla, omanth 3 colors, and Arahbo I was able to give more fight, since they let me arm myself and I could easily explode to 2, however the same thing happens to me, problems in the first 3 turns. If I am lucky enough to be able to play morophon in turn 3-4 it is almost impossible to lose thanks to the pressure, but if I don't, those turns are always dangerous especially against Arahbo and Markov. The budget that I manage is not to exceed 800 USD in the deck. Thanks

Nice to see a cat tribal Nethroi deck!

I've played Arahbo, Roar of the World a lot, a when Ikoria was released, I pondered to make an abzan cat tribal with Nethroi. But I ended building it normal graveyard synergy as I wantet to keep my classic Arahbo constructed.

Anyway, I know the flavor is that all your cats are legendary, an I love that, but I think if you want to play the deck more efficient without losing cat theme, you can do some changes:

Falthis, Shadowcat Familiar in this particular deck is only a 2/2 vanilla, as your only commander Nethroi already has deathtouch. I love it, but in this particular case sadly doesn't do anything.

Cards you could add, knowing that aren't legendary, but they are cats that work very well with your deck:

Fleecemane Lion can became indestructible, and then you can mutate your commander on it, making a great indestructible menace and keeping that +1/+1 counter.
Fleetfoot Panther and Whitemane Lion can save one of your cats or can bounce your commander to keep doing his mutation and reanimating things. Bronzehide Lion also protects your creatures.
Qasali Pridemage you play it, control your opponent best artifacts or enchantments, dies and Nethroi will recover it later.
Necropanther to reanimate small cats or creatures, and can mutateo over your commander to repeat effects.
Feline Sovereign and Regal Caracal , if you go tribal, those are the best cats lords, in addition to Kaheera of course.
Rakshasa Debaser can be a wincon when you encore him.
Alms Collector for card draw and to control greedy card draws of enemies.
Phantom Nishoba and Phantom Tiger look scrapy, but they count 0 power when you reanimate them with Nethroi, and if you mutate Nethroi on them, you transform Nethroi into a crature that prevent all the damage that receibes, even if he loses all +1/+1 counters.

And playing something like Nethroi, believe me (I'm a Nethroi and a golgari player), you need graveyard synergy. If you don't, you'll find that you reached turn X, play Nethroi but you only can revive 1-2 sad creatures. You need to fill your graveyard before that.
Exmaples (of course there are much more):
Grisly Salvage
Satyr Wayfinder
Buried Alive
Jarad's Orders
Altar of Dementia
Life from the Loam

And last:
Eerie Ultimatum and Living Death you'll have much fun with those in this type of deck.

Hope that give you some ideas to improve the deck without changing its spirit.

Why don't you just run something like Arahbo, Roar of the World as your commander and Kaheera, the Orphanguard as your companion?

Made some changes to improve the Cats, Ramp and Draw. Also trying to make the deck play quicker, and lowered the CMC to have it play more like an Aggro deck, to leverage Arahbo, Roar of the World eminence capability.

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

Yes it's strange, normally Selesnya () loves Skullclamp (maybe not quite as much as some artifact decks though), but Arahbo, Roar of the World just feels right going voltron vs. wide.

Card advantage / draw is definitely a real issue with Arahbo, Roar of the World, I've found, would love to solve it outside of always having to tutor Sylvan Library.

Spirits on Arahbo, Budget... for Cats EDH

Hi dgobass,

Yes it does, shroud means your Arahbo, Roar of the World can't target the creature either.

Same problem with Sword of Feast and Famine, the protection: means it can't be targeted.

The question becomes whether the haste and the protection is outweighs the +3, if you have another creature you can move the Lightning Greaves around for later when you no longer need the haste, but it's one or the other.

SynergyBuild on What is your favorite card …

I remember playing Feline Ferocity, the first deck I played in EDH just as it came out, only slightly editted with a few modern cards that I owned, as I had played modern for a few years prior. When I cast Hunter's Prowess, triggered Arahbo, Roar of the World on my 4/4 Phantom Nishoba, attacking, doubling with Arahbo, getting in for 20 damage, life, and cards, it was amazing.

To date, I believe that card in that moment was what got me into EDH, ever since I have loved that card, and despite being a cEDH player currently, I always love that card and cards like it (Soul's Majesty, Return of the Wildspeaker, Rishkar's Expertise, etc.).

Are there any cards that just make you love playing EDH? I've heard Sol Ring, Zendikar Resurgent, etc. all get people in the EDH mood, what do you all like?
