You have lots of cat lords, Feline Sovereign, Kaheera, the Orphanguard, King of the Pride, etc. as well it works with self-modifiers like Loam Lion and Qasali Pridemage the new cat Sovereign Okinec Ahau can permanently +1/+1 counter your cats. Notably missing (in your maybeboard) Regal Caracal would give everyone lifelink too.

Glittering Lynx seems off, the isn't that disruptive for an opponent if it matters. I think you're trying to maximize your MV 1-drop cats, but Arcbound Mouser would give you a second Trained Caracal with upside instead. Lion Sash is also nice, but it is MV 2-drop.

The other new cat would be good: Kutzil, Malamet Exemplar, he could replace something like a vanilla Leonin Skyhunter or a mana sync like Bronzehide Lion or a really high cmc creature with low value like Jareth, Leonine Titan who probably is a win-more at MV6 that won't turn a loss into a win, really he MV7 to activate. Card in that MV slot has to be extremely impactful. Cats like Scrounging Bandar also work well with this new cat. Limiting interaction on your turn especially flashing in +3 spells (Indomitable Might) is really nice.

Leonin Relic-Warder is nice for controlling artifacts/enchantments and providing another MV2 cat.

Everybody Lives! gives another Heroic Intervention type effect.

Farseek is MV2 but I'm betting Harvest Season probably does more work at MV3. 35 lands seems like a lot for a low curve, maybe some low MV ramp like Talisman of Unity. Boseiju, Who Endures is a good forest but it's stupid expensive.

Rancor is a really nice trample/evasion enabler. Or like a Shadowspear or something which also helps out with Indestructibles blocking your cats. Pridemalkin is on a cat body, but don't like the MV3.

Mirri's Guile is okay, but a bit of a trap, way more value at MV2 with Sylvan Library

Song of the Dryads I get for locking out a commander but some instant interaction like Stroke of Midnight are usually more utility in more situations, might be a meta card though.

Eladamri's Call will bring up consistency to draw the finisher cats.

Some thoughts:

  • I'm not sure why you've defaulted the view of this deck to be by "TCG player high price" - almost all of these cards can be acquired for well-under $1 (most under $0.50).

  • One thing to note is that Mentor of the Meek won't be doing much of anything while King of the Pride, as the King will make almost all of your creatures enter with more than 2 power. I'd suggest probably ditching Mentor.

  • Cards I'd suggest ditching are Pride Guardian (cards that only gain life and do nothing else are pretty universally bad), Ordeal of Heliod (its really slow and doesn't really do a lot), Cosmos Elixir (its a really bad effect for such a high mana cost), Revitalize (cards that only gain life and do nothing else are pretty universally bad), and maybe Scout's Warning (you don't really to be flashing-in any of your creatures, though I can see this is maybe just useful as a cantrip if you have nothing else to play).

Fushiii - Me again! If you are looking for inspiration, here are some suggested decks...Personally I think that the most competitive cat tribal deck I have seen was Kaheera Cats and Chariots :3 from NonetheWeisser. I never tried it but just the look of the deck is very aggressive with many ways that creature boost themselves naturally or with some cheap enchantments. The guy makes sick decks...To toot my own horn, my own take on cats was very different as I focused on the token production with Feline Feelings. I played that deck a lot of MTGO in modern and it faired pretty well actually with a solid win rate. What I am getting at is you can go a lot of ways with cats and they are underrated I feel like in terms of how powerful they actually are and I would need more of an idea of what direction you are wanting your deck to take before I could make any relevant suggestions.

In terms of lords, there is King of the Pride for sheer pump, Feline Sovereign for artifact/enchantment hate, Kaheera, the Orphanguard of which you can have as your companion if you meet the conditions which is pretty slick...pretty much allows you to play 61 cards instead of 60!, and Regal Caracal who is great but pretty expensive for modern. So lots of good stuff to chose from!

I would remove a couple Kaheeras for King of the Pride.

Having two Sepharas would result in both having indestructible as they would give it to each other.

It's like having two King of the Pride. It gives other cats a buff. Once you have two of them then they themselves get buffed because they're giving it to each other.

Really like this build. Consider revisiting this with new cat tribal stuff like:

And more potentially coming in Dominaria United. This is a fire build where a few newer pieces such as these could make all the difference.

lhetrick13 - thanks for the feedback!

First of all, I have to apologize to you, the name of the deck is kinda misleading, it is not focused on tokens or lifelink, it just happens to be there, so I removed hubs to not create confusion.

I have other cat decks, one focused on lifelink and another focused on creating tokens, stay tuned for when I drop them here!

I really thought about swapping Wild Nacatl for another cat, but since it it a very agressive deck, It can potentially hit an enemy with 3 on turn 2 (if you drop Wild Nacatl on turn 1 and then drop Jetmir's Garden on turn 2) and with 5 on turn 3 (if you drop King of the Pride), that is very powerful. I run Sacred Cat on my token focused cat deck, very good card.

Anointed Procession and Parallel Lives are indeed very good cards, but again, I'm not that focused on making tokens (sorry again). I thought about Ghostly Prison because I was inspired about a cat and taxes deck I saw on youtube, and felt that taxing my opponent in order to attack me is kinda good. Anointed Procession is also on my token focused cat deck.

About Path to Exile that is very true! I'll swap with Fateful Absence, thanks for the suggestion!

I run 24 lands because the mana average is kinda high but I think I could pottentially drop 1 land...

Indeed Esika's Chariot is a welcome addition to the deck, I just haven't figured out what I could swap for it, maybe a Qasali Pridemage...
