Icon of Ancestry Discussion

Very interesting. I agree with the comment about spark lands but I would also like to suggest fitting a Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin in. He's 3 mana, and a cheap card. Creates goblins quickly and can get big. I would also recommend putting Scale Up in place of some of your other buff cards. It's not an increase but rather a change in base power and toughness, but for goblins it works. Plus if you overload it while having a huge number of goblins it's even better! I believe the scaled creature keeps its abilities too. The only problem I see left is card draw. Your deck has super low mana costs and you can play things pretty quickly leaving you top decking. Maybe swap a swamp for a Castle Locthwain. One or two Icon of Ancestry or Heirloom Blade might be good too.

Cryptolith Rite and Song of Freyalise would be purfect here once you get some Cat tokens on the battlefield, making it a bit of a late game card. In which case, Song of Freyalise might be the better card here because it also provides an additional win condition. Growth Spasm might be a card worth considering as a combo here with the token tapping for mana then being able to sac itself for one more on top of getting an additional land out.
I wouldn't take the birds out since they are the fastest way you can ramp here. I think the Ajani's Welcome would be a safer card to remove since it doesn't ramp you into your combos or produce tokens and maaaaybe Hydra's Growth for the same reason.
As far as the pumps go, I would say Intangible Virtue is probably the best one because it is the cheapest and lets you swing with them and then tap them for mana with Cryptolith Rite or the Song of Freyalise. The Icon of Ancestry and Coat of Arms can both do more, but the mana can probably better spent towards making tokens and/or removal. Hope this helps.

thanks Barbarian_Sun_Pope, indeed that nissa seems that can do just fine. Nacatl War-Pride is quite expensive too(manawise). The mirror seems interesting. and since is artifact does not require blue (most clone spells do need blue...) and works only for a turn. but that is fine.
so for mana fixing. i think this could help as well:
Cryptolith Rite (since the idea is to make cat tokens... ) and take out the birds?
Harvest Season (at the right time, (with enough cat copies tapped might help to get all the lands out of the deck... )
if it works things to consider:
White Sun's Zenith : well if we have tons of copies... that can produce mana, why not get more cats... (2/2 cat)

I have some suggestions.
Chulane, Teller of Tales is pretty good because it ramps mana, draws you cards, and takes advantage of all the enter the battlefield/cast this creature effects in the deck. Portal of Sanctuary also takes advantage of this.
Brood Monitor makes 3 Eldrazi scions and this can be repeated using the methods I mentioned above.
As a final note, Dread Defiler could be a worthy include cause it allows you to throw all your dead creatures at the opponents' face. Desolation Twin, when combined with methods mentioned above, can make a lot of 10/10 Eldrazi tokens.
Overall, this is a great deck, and it seems to be going pretty good!

Hey dude thanks for the feedback! i really like Icon of Ancestrywill add it, the goblin digging of it is really neat...Kaervek's Torch is cool cause the extra 2 mana for counter! add it!...i dont like Stoke the Flames cause if goblins arent being sac´d theyll be attacking :S I do realize that Krenko is gonna have a bullseye in his head so i did put some haste givers like Fervor, Swiftfoot Boots,Goblin Bushwhacker, Goblin Chieftain, Goblin Warchief and Reckless Bushwhacker....i didnt add Lightning Greaves cause of the tag price, its a bit high and im trying to make this deck as cheap as possible!
