A bit surprised you don't have Luminous Broodmoth in here, since 13th Doc cares about any counters on your creatures. Also surprised The Ozolith isn't in here.

I brewed up a Sovereign Okinec deck a few months ago, and that was all stuff I had in consideration for that deck.

Drannith Magistrate, Deep Gnome Terramancer, Kutzil, Malamet Exemplar, Ohran Frostfang, Veil of Summer, Silence, Legolas's Quick Reflexes & Conqueror's Flail could all be great here!

Also 1-drop card draw enchantments like Curiosity, Curious Obsession, Combat Research, Keen Sense & Sixth Sense trigger twice with Double Strike, and get out of hand really quickly!

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.

Agreed finally a new all-star cat for the deck! Kutzil, Malamet Exemplar is protection / reduces disruption and draws cards if the creature with Eminence deals combat damage. This is an auto-include cat.

Sovereign Okinec Ahau probably won't make the cut, not really a +1 counters matter deck. It's not quite enough for infect, so Lost Leonin 2 + Eminence 3 + Sovereign Okinec Ahau 3 = 8 poison only. I feel it's similar to the reason that Ajani, Sleeper Agent hasn't playtested well (I tried him for testing, then took out, then put back in for flavor, but his +1 is just no good, and can't seem to get to his ultimate).

Sovereign Okinec Ahau it does distribute 3 counters (minimum), or more if you have some equipment attached to creatures. doesn't give haste like Halana and Alena, Partners or any evasion or protection. It needs Modified creatures have Ward , or Modified creatures have Trample, or Cats get +1/+1 (being a cat lord means every cat would get a +1 counter when it attacks), something to justify the MV4.

I would argue Kutzil, Malamet Exemplar is the 3rd best cat in the deck now! This deck just needs more cats that matter! They need Questing Beast to be oracle to a Cat Beast :).

Excellent suggestions.

Sovereign Okinec Ahau and Kutzil, Malamet Exemplar from the new Ixalan set might have a good spot here.
