Arahbo, Roar of the World

Legendary Creature — Cat Avatar

Eminence - At the beginning of combat on your turn, if Arahbo, Roar of the World is in the command zone or on the battlefield, another target Cat you control gets +3/+3 until end of turn.

Whenever another Cat you control attacks, you may pay {1}{G}{W}. If you do, it gains trample and gets +X/+X until end of turn, where X is its power.

I feel like a big part of commander decks is how reliant your deck is on having your commander on the battlefield. The decks that need their commander in play often do broken and fun things, which can be enticing for someone just getting started in commander. But these decks are often also fragile, and aren't nearly as fun if the commander is repeatedly countered or removed. So it depends on how interactive the meta he'll be playing is.

That being said, the god commanders from Theros and Amonkhet are alot easier to keep on the battlefield. Iroas, God of Victory , Mogis, God of Slaughter , and Xenagos, God of Revels can be fun decks to play.

Alternatively, if he wants his commander to hide in the shadows and let his minions do the work, the commanders with eminence abilities might suit him well, as they'll give him benefits while they stay in the command zone. There are 4 eminence commanders in total, all tribal themed: Arahbo, Roar of the World Cat Tribal, Edgar Markov Vampire Tribal, Inalla, Archmage Ritualist Wizard Tribal, and The Ur-Dragon Dragon Tribal.

The cuts

New hotness


Now the changes (reduction in bears) came after multiple playtests. Initially the deck was designed to function a lot like my Arahbo, Roar of the World deck in just jamming as many tribal cards as possible. The issue with this though is:

  • Bears by and large have very few meaningful ETBs by themselves,
  • Arahbo, Roar of the World always functions from the command zone due to eminence, and
  • The way Arahbo is designed means that he requires as many cats as possible to function, as he can never affect himself.

Conversely Ayula, Queen Among Bears only functions on the battlefield, and we have access to multiple token producers in both permanent and spell form.

The Future

A few cards that have caught my attention for possible future additions:

Thanks BiBitty! I thought of Arahbo, Roar of the World , even used it in a earlier iteration of the deck before posting. Sadly, I trimmed the deck size down a little, and something had to budge. As for Brimaz, if you hadn’t noticed, I was going for more of a pure kitty cat vibe. I did not dip into the huge pool of cat soldiers, mostly because this deck was made because of a joke my friend made. But Leonin Warleader , now that’s a card I can get behind. I. Don’t have any four-drops, and it’s ability is dope. I’ll play test and see what I should drop for it. Thanks again for the feedback!

Can I make a hub suggestion in this thread? If so, I'd recommend creating the following:

Cats. A tribal deck that uses the synergies and abilities of Cat cards like Arahbo, Roar of the World , Kemba, Kha Regent , and Brimaz, King of Oreskos .

Arahbo's Roar


Target Cat Creature you control gains Trample and +X/+X until end of turn, where X is it's power. You may search your library and/or graveyard for a card called "Arahbo, Roar of the Multiverse", and put it in your hand. If you searched your library this way, shuffle your library

"A deafening roar surged forth with enough power to shake the earth, and then it was there"

For my card I went with a design similar to that of the exclusive cards in planeswalker decks that allow you to o find your planeswalker, only for a as-of-now (and probably forever) planeswalker version of Arahbo, Roar of the World . Now make another one, ok?

I like about Careful Consideration that it can target myself. I run some cards, that are not very good in particular matchups. For example Damnation ist not good versus control. I like to have ways to get rid of those cards. Being instant is another huge plus for the Careful Consideration over many other similar cards. That said, Wheel and Deal is a cool idea, i try to find room for the card :)

@ God-Eternal Kefnet : I totally agree, but atm i do not run both 6/6 demons and in my opinion being 6/6 is better then being 4/5. Its for me similar to running Gurmag Angler over Tasigur, the Golden Fang . The added bonus is nice to have, but often not relevant.

Golgari Charm is a great out versus many problematic cards. -1/-1 gets rid of an opposing True-Name Nemesis , Sai, Master Thopterist token, Loyal Apprentice and its token, many other red aggro cards, Bitterblossom tokens (or Bitterblossom itself), buying a turn versus Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow , killing a lot of cats in Arahbo, Roar of the World , killing mana dorks, etc...

There are also a lot of enchantments that are very problematic for this deck. For Example: Blood Moon , Hall of Gemstone , Song of the Dryads , Opposition , Treachery , Stasis , Search for Azcanta  Flip (getting out of the lock), Parallax Wave , etc...

I think i have never used the third mode :)

Nissa, Vital Force is a good answer to a planeswalker, blocks like a champ, closes games and is incredible fast on her ultimate. The -3 is sometimes also nice, but not as relevant as the other two modes.

If I understand Defender correctly , i could trigger Arahbo, Roar of the World 's Eminence on a cat equipped with Dragon Throne of Tarkir , but I could not activate Arahbo's second ability on the equipped creature, correct? If I have a Leonin Shikari , would i be able to target an attacking cat with Arahbo's second ability, then attach the Dragon Throne to that cat before damage, and activate the Throne on the pumped cat to give my other cats the +/+ and trample buff? Does this take the attacking cat out of combat now that it has Defender?
