some good lands make a world of difference. not the most exciting upgrades but probably the most functional.

  1. Boseiju, Who Endures
  2. these are amazing because if you dont need the land drop they can be a spell
  3. Otawara, Soaring City
  4. Marsh Flats
  5. Misty Rainforest
  6. Verdant Catacombs
  7. Flooded Strand
  8. Gavony Township
  9. Spara's Headquarters
  10. or other triomes from capenna
  11. Indatha Triome
  12. or other triomes
  13. Opal Palace
  14. Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth
  15. Temple Garden
  16. or other shock lands, they can be fetched and can enter untapped
  17. Dreamroot Cascade
  18. the midnight hunt and crimson vow lands are also great for helping fix your mana
  19. Karn's Bastion

I took a long hard look at this deck, and I wanted to formulate helpful comments. I had so many things to say, I eventually figured I would try my hand at a similar deck, and see where they would diverge.

The main point is the Commander. I have found that Katilda is faster, versatile and more reliable, as turning all your humans into mana dorks will allow you to deploy your strategy and also recoup from a potential wipe much more easily. Her last ability is also great mid to late game, making her a real powerhouse.

The second point is I would get rid of any creature that is not a Human. There are many fantastic Humans that you can include and would synergize to bring you exponential tokens and +1/+1 counters that you are missing out on.

Recursion is nice, but I would rather concentrate on keeping the upper hand and not losing permanents to removal. Thank you for the discovery of Silkguard and Your Temple Is Under Attack, these are perfect for this deck, and I have adopted them for my list.

The mana base could use some tweaking; you do not need Yavimaya in here, it may end up helping your opponents more than yourself. Oran-Rief, the Vastwood and Gavony Township would be very valuable.

So all things considered, here is my take on this deck. Obviously it is not in the same budget range, but I do hope you find some helpful inspiration in my build.

GabrielHK97 - Always love a good cat deck! I have actually made something very similar with the cat tribal with a heavy token focus (Feline Feelings). If I would to make some suggestions...

  • I would swap out Wild Nacatl for Sacred Cat. Wild Nacatl is a great card but since you are only running 8x Mountains and are kinda going for token production, tough to beat Sacred Cat.

  • I am surprised by the running of Ghostly Prison in this deck as that is a very defense card in a very aggressive deck. I would personally focus more on the aggression. For example, in my deck I added in Parallel Lives and Anointed Procession to really make that token production work for me.

  • Don't get me wrong, I love Path to Exile as it is super cheap and powerful but I also hate how it ramps the opponent. You might experiment with some other removal/interaction spells that maybe have less of a downside like Fateful Absence.

  • If you do decide to drop mana, Canopy Vista and Gavony Township could be some potential additions.

  • Still kinda land related, you are running alot of tap lands...8 total at the moment with a potential 12 if you do not have the right stuff in hand. Might be worth looking at some other options like filter, shock, or fetch lands.

  • One card I would highly recommend for any cat themed deck is Esika's Chariot. I got turned onto this card by looking at another deck here and it is very similar to Collected Company except it will never wiff like Collected Company can. Plus, it can copy your existing tokens like the eternalized version of Adorned Pouncer.

Cool deck and happy brewing!

Love a good cat deck! You should check out Kaheera Cats and Chariots :3 by NonetheWeisser for some additional inspiration. Definitely one of the most competitive tribal cat decks out there and if I could toot my own horn my version of cat tribal focuses more on token creation but it is fairly potent non the less as well (Feline Feelings). Lots of good discussion in the comments of those two decks as many of the cards you are either playing or considering are in those. Might help you make some educated decisions if you were on the edge of playing one cat versus another.

Otherwise, it almost feels a bit like you are going for some +1/+1 counter synergy with this deck. Collective Effort and Unbreakable Formation are something I have played in +1/+1 counter decks and Ajani, Caller of the Pride provides another way to get counters while having some finishing moves as well. If that is the direction you are wanting, I would definitely recommend adding in a full playset of Metallic Mimic to bring cats in with +1/+1 counters and Hardened Scales to double that effect. Adding a few copies of Gavony Township might give you late game options as well. If that is not the direction you are wanting, I might suggest Dromoka's Command over Collective Effort. Slightly less potent and upside but cheaper and a bit more flexible. I would also suggest Heroic Intervention over Unbreakable Formation for the same reasons.

Also, you may want to look at the lands a bit. You only have 10 ways to generate a mana. Loam Lion is a beast if could add something like Temple Garden. Wooded Bastion would be a cheaper alternative if cost is an issue.

Anyway, hope something there was useful and happy brewing!

From your current list i’d suggest ditching:

  • both Godsire and Meglonoth. They’re not needed now that you have a bunch of ways to spam out Emrakul.

  • all of the Druid of the Anima. You have enough mana dorks and this one is quite slow.

  • i’d go down to 21 lands. Your curve is super low now, and you have a good number of dorks, so this should be an ideal number. From that 21, i’d suggest running some plains so you can cast Vizier. I’d also suggest running a single copy of Gavony Township, to help you if the game goes long.

That gives you 10 free card slots, which i’d suggest adding in the following:

Had some games today - felt terrible, i think the deck is losing his focus A LOT.

At this point i basically removed all the white creatures in favour of Portable Hole and 2 Gavony Township - i also DEFINITELY like Lifecrafter's Bestiary as both a passive scry every turn and the now and then draw: i think i need to go back to the origins and concentrate on green creatures more - even with 8 double lands i often find myself without the right mana to cast creatures, the first few turns: especially with training, not having more than the lonely initiate down, because i'm missing the 2 green to cast, is just pain. Might have to find space to put back the Pelt Collector Will have to decide eventually, but the deck felt smoother a few iterations ago, and definitely without the white creatures in (i literally have NEVER been able to train the Savior of Ollenbock ONCE in however many games - i managed to use the initiate ability today more than once for the first time - and he trained once). I feel like training, apart from being slow in general, is also too dangerous with the amount of deathtouch stuff i'm dealing with, and having the creature die to a 1/1 dt or stay a 1/2 forever because that's my main way of pumping him up just doesn't work.

I'll update the deck with the latest revision tomorrow, so you can lmk what you think!

p.s. i have the Luminarch Aspirant, i might try him around eventually!

I feel the proliferate is not quite as good as actually putting a +1/+1 counter as you have to have one in place to actually get the effect. I like it on Grateful Apparition, Huatli's Raptor, and Tezzeret's Gambit as it is an extra bonus on top of another main ability.

You also got to remember I play MTGO and things are usually like 10-50x cheaper! Karn's Bastion is only 0.03 cents and Gavony Township is only 0.02 cents via CardHoarder :) Some things are still tough to get in MTGO though like Esper Sentinel :( Don't get me wrong, I feel like player in person would be much more fun as I play casually and love to chat and commentate on the games but MTGO allows me to play around my toddler-centered-lifestyle and for a small fraction of the price of building a collection in paper. Pros and Cons...
