King of the Pride Discussion

Tried to make the deck a little bit more consistent and with a couple more draw and planeswalker cards. In addition, the creatures added give a bit more staying power and other abilities instead of just strictly attacking, although that's still the main mode of winning. Also went a bit more in on +1/+1 counters as well.

Some budget options from us:
- Blackblade Reforged: can make an equipped creature ridiculously powerful.
- Colossus Hammer: high equip cost to make something very strong but there are ways around that (like Kor Outfitter, Brass Squire).
- King of the Pride: nice boost to all cats Kemba generates.
- Raksha Golden Cub: wonderful cat booster that fits well into the deck.
- Stoneforge Masterwork: cheap equipment that boosts a great deal.
In case you're interested, please have a look at our Kemba deck for more ideas.

Hey, nice semi budget version of Arahbo.
King of the Pride + Elemental Bond is an interaction for a lot of repeatable draw with Cats. The +2 of power is applied to Cats when they ETB therefore with King any Cat here who ETB will trigger Bond. Bond triggers when tokens are created and with King a 1/1 Cat token ETB as a 3/2 Cat which triggers Bond to draw.
This interaction is good with equipped Kemba, Kha Regent, Felidar Retreat, Brimaz, King of Oreskos or White Sun's Zenith. Many Cats have 2 power which means with any anthem such as Kaheera, the Orphanguard they get 3 power which triggers Bond. Garruk's Uprising is another option and trample is nice, but Cats consistently having 4 power when they ETB is more difficult then 3 power.
Consider more tutors to get a Cat, an equipment, an enchantment?
Several Cats have double strike including Raksha Golden Cub who can give all Cats the ability, but he's 7 mana. Giving any Cat the ability for a lower mana cost is helpful since Arahbo is a repeatable pump right away.
With double strike a creature who has an effect that happens when it does combat damage to a player can potentially trigger it twice. Can take real advantage of this with Feline Sovereign and Bloodforged Battle-Axe. Other ways to use this are too draw cards with Mask of Memory, Keeper of Fables, Hunter's Insight.
Good luck with your deck.

Pride Sovereign is great, although its probably more for GW. Feline Sovereign is a lord that also gives you artifact/enchantment removal. Prowling Serpopard is obviously great against any sort of counterspell-playing deck, although a bit expensive. Kaheera, the Orphanguard is also sorta expensive but you can just run one as a companion. Generous Stray isn't as good but its cheap and cantrips.
I would suggest going into GW colors. Even though the manabase won't be great with budget constraints you get access to so many more cats: Adorned Pouncer, Brimaz, King of Oreskos ($$$$), Leonin Vanguard, Regal Caracal, King of the Pride (this one is OP), Qasali Ambusher, Ajani's Pridemate (good with Leonin Vanguard, etc. This'll also give you good SB options like Felidar Cub/Qasali Pridemage (not sure if needed with Feline sovereign already removing artifacts/enchantments), Dromoka's Command, Leonin Arbiter, etc.

Yeah, Kaheera, the Orphanguard would be a reasonable replacement for Kemba, Kha Regent. I'd almost rather have King of the Pride for the additional +1 instead of vigilance. Where Kaheera, the Orphanguard is better is it can companion, however, means a bit of pivoting around combos and strategies with the restriction of the creature subtypes.
Some games Kemba, Kha Regent has made an impact, lots of the time, I feel like it's just wasting the equipment from other attackers to make vanilla 2/2 creatures. Depends on the situation. The more token makers the better value your get from Kaheera, the Orphanguard as well, so the direct replace does make it a bit slower. I just found Kemba, Kha Regent without a centralized equipment focus was too slow.
Dunno if that helps but Kaheera, the Orphanguard in the 99 is a fair trade, as a companion, means quite a bit of re-evaluation and rework.

Ok, so I totally get your focus on changelings, and it absolutely makes sense, but not including at least some lords from among Regal Caracal, Pack Leader, King of the Pride, Kaheera, the Orphanguard and Pride Sovereign seems like a wasted oportunity to have your tokens go giant.
Besides this, I really love the deck. I'll definitely get a copy of Rin and Seri if I can. That cuteness is just amazingly.
