Blade of the Sixth Pride Discussion

If you did want to go the equipment route, there are several cats that provide vonuses relating to equipment like Kemba, Kha Regent, Raksha Golden Cub, and Leonin Shikari among others. (Stoneforge Masterwork could be a good equipment for you)
If you want to stay pure tribal and not worry about equipment, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, and White Sun's Zenith can help. (zenith is better in slower decks that will have time to get enough mana to cast a large one).
As for possible cuts, that depends a bit on how you want your deck to play out. If you want your deck to be more aggressive, cards like Jareth, Leonine Titan and the 4 Explosive Vegetations are likely going to be too slow. Also you would much rather have ways of keeping up the pressure rather than ramping.
If you would rather have a deck that can take the time to ramp to cast big threats, you could focus less on the aggressively costed cats.
Lastly, while its not a great card, one of the 5 nonland full art cards is a cat: Blade of the Sixth Pride

Okay I came up with a few suggestions that may or may not help. So feel free to ignore them. White and Green is not my expertise.
He might be higher on the curve than any of your others but Jazal Goldmane is one of my favorite cards. He kicks ass!
Okay my brain has reached its data limit, good day!

TheRedGoat: Red and Green were, for the longest time, in contention for 'better' creatures - the position where White is now. Green got efficient, smaller creatures with a few larger 'bomb' cards, like Scaled Wurm, while Red monopolized the mid-range vanilla creatures. Both got good 1 drops, but the difference between, say, Llanowar Elves and Raging Goblin shows how the two colours treat their creatures.

Alright, alright, we are gonna need to grease our arms for this one. As of right now your deck seems to have an issue with its goal - a conflict of interests. You have plenty of cards that produce tokens, which is fine, but you also are running Massive Raid and Dogpile. Which would be fine, but you are running Collateral Damage which reduces the effectiveness of those cards. So my first word of advice would be to remove Dogpile - Might as well replace it with the ultimately better relative: Lightning Bolt.
Now that we got that conflict on the back burner, let's look at what we got: A token deck that ramps creatures to play cards that care about the creature count. So let's look at where this strategy begins, what cards care about the creature count?
Alright the culprit in this situation is Burn at the Stake while it is arguably better, casting it is quite difficult with the triple red. I think you should increase the Dogpile count, and reduce the Massive Raid count. I'd consider ridding yourself of Burn at the Stake altogether.
Now the creatures and cards that enable this strategy, are frankly terrible. Both Blade of the Sixth Pride and Oreskos Swiftclaw are horrible, and they do nothing to help further the strategy. Replace them with Lingering Souls, Increasing Devotion, Hangarback Walker, Secure the Wastes, and Mentor of the Meek. All of the cards listed are better than the two I have a problem with, however I'd also recommend getting rid of Healer of the Pride or Thraben Doomsayer. Lifegain just further prevents an inevitable death, so including it will just prolong the time it takes you to lose. And Thraben is just slow.
As for the land base, if you do decide to run Lingering Souls I recommend you run some kind of black to make use of the flashback.
