Hey nice deck! The way i see it you can focus more one one direction of this deck and use the other for support: either auras or equipment. Aura Focus: Add: Archon of Sun's Grace Ashiok's Erasure Boon Satyr Copy Enchantment Curiosity Darksteel Mutation Dissipation Field Hydra's Growth Gift of Paradise Hypnotic Siren Ichthyomorphosis Idyllic Tutor Kenrith's Transformation Plea for Guidance Psychic Impetus Unflinching Courage
Remove: Masterwork of Ingenuity Puresteel Paladin Explorer's Scope Indomitable Archangel Catti-brie of Mithral Hall Resolute Archangel Valiant Endeavor Serum Visions Brainstorm Angelic Gift Unsettled Mariner Cold-Eyed Selkie Military Intelligence
Equipment Focus: Add: Balan, Wandering Knight Behemoth Sledge Belt of Giant Strength Golem-Skin Gauntlets Kemba, Kha Regent Mask of Memory Mirrormade Paradise Mantle Prying Blade Quest for the Holy Relic Whispersilk Cloak
Remove: Resolute Archangel Ajani's Chosen Valiant Endeavor Gryff's Boon Angelic Gift Unsettled Mariner Military Intelligence Cold-Eyed Selkie Serum Visions Brainstorm Explorer's Scope Indomitable Archangel
And if you dont want to focus on one this would be a more Varied apporach incorporating a little from both Both Focus: Add: Fleecemane Lion Geist of Saint Traft Kiora's Follower Mirrormade Spirit Mantle Staggering Insight Utopia Sprawl Curiosity Beast Within Archon of Sun's Grace Curiosity Darksteel Mutation Dissipation Field Idyllic Tutor Unflinching Courage Behemoth Sledge Kemba, Kha Regent Mirrormade Quest for the Holy Relic Whispersilk Cloak Kenrith's Transformation

I have exactly zero experience with Pioneer, but I like what you're doing here from a commander perspective!
Since I have such little knowledge of the format, you ought to take all my suggestions with several grains of salt; but here's what I've got:
I wonder if Fleecemane Lion is worthy of a playset--would a Kargan Intimidator (can give Pelt Collector trample!), or Adorned Pouncer (also a cat lol, and works well w/Ghor-Clan Rampager) be a worthy replacement?
Speaking of Ghor-Clan Rampager (albeit the first mention was parenthetical, but surely it counts!), I don't love it as a 4-of--so much mana, even if it can be activated for cheaper. A few Collected Company could reeeaally help give this deck some gas, and that seems like it would take the same slot given mana cost.
Glad to see people playing non-commander formats, it can get a little stale with just that sometimes ;3

But yes, as Gidgetimer mentioned, unless you're getting into shenanigans, you will go through a combat step every turn, regardless of if you want to or not.

so lets say we are playing commander. opponent B has a Telepathy and I know that opponent A has a Smite the Monstrous in their hand, along with the mana to play it. my commander is Arahbo, Roar of the World and my only creature on the battlefield is Fleecemane Lion which I dont have the mana to give it monstrous. to protect my cat, can I skip my combat phase to not give it the buff, or since arahbo doesnt say may, even if Im not gonna attack I have to enter the combat phase, arahbo triggers giving my cat +3 +3 and making it a removal target?

I'm currently searching for a nice cat-tribe-build and saw your deck. Nice Start :)
But 18 Creatures is way too lees. Also i don't think Sigarda's Aid pushes your gameplan that much forward as you have about a dozen equipment-cards. In this sense you have more creatures which would participate from Vanquisher's Banner / Icon of Ancestry in common than with Sigarda's Aid .
To get a bigger Battalion i would recommend at least the following creatures:
Bronzehide Lion - Hard to remove and comes back to make something other hard to remove
Fleecemane Lion - once it's monstrous it is a real threat
Feline Sovereign - pump-effect for all cats with a bonus if one of your cats lands a hit
Phantom Nishoba - nice finisher, hard to kill
Basri's Acolyte - support for the other Kitties
Qasali Pridemage - All Star who pumps a single attacker; nice side-effect

Nice to see a cat tribal Nethroi deck!
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):
Altar of Dementia
Life from the Loam
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.

You have NOTHING like that in Pioneer when talking cats, and especially nothing in this deck right now. What this is is a early rendition of cat tribal. Which isn't bad, but you've got the terms wrong.
If you want cats, you need to go all-in on face-beating with your cats.
Another thing: Adorned Pouncer, Fleecemane Lion, and Bronzehide Lion ARE NOT USED for their abilities. Eternalize, Monstrosity and the indestructible clause are useful and nice bonuses that take these cards from fairly good to really powerful, but they're not the core.
The core on those cards is that they deal large amounts of damage for the mana cost. 2 mana to deal 3 damage every turn is a very good rate. Don't force yourself to use their abilities, or think of them in terms of abilities.
Also, Felidar Sovereign takes care of artifacts and enchantments maindeck. If you run 4, you have four cards that not only buff every creature in your deck but also let you destroy an artifact/enchantment every single turn. That's so much better than a single random weird Naturalize.
Unbreakable Formation is good. Feel free to run multiple copies, but not instead of Felidar.
Also, 'tutors' are almost entirely used to combo off. They have to be very efficient if you want to be going and getting specific cards from your deck in an aggressive creature deck. I recommend cutting all noncreature, nonland cards except maybe 1-2 Formations and then running 4 Collected Company. Or, if you want, run Eldritch Evolution. Evolution would be used on a 3 mana creature to go get one of 1-2 Regal Caracal, which is pretty good when you can pull it straight from your deck.
Or it can be used on a 2 or less to grab Lurrus for value.
