Leonin Arbiter

Creature — Cat Cleric

Players can't search libraries. Any player may pay for that player to ignore this effect until end of turn.

kloac on Tax's Saga

GODKOFFIN19 hammertime is more competitive than this build. This is the original Death and Taxes deck, but without Leonin Arbiter and adding Urza's Saga. The idea of this deck is to slow the opponent’s strategy, incrementing his or her mana payment to cast spells or locking some interactions using Archon of Emeria.

Is a really fun deck to play, but it can be a bit complex to use at the beginning.

But, to sum up, hammertime is a tier 1 deck for sure, and this one maybe is a tier 2 (but I really enjoy playing original decks, so that’s why I like this build haha)

idfkgabe decent creatures in white and/or black are aplenty, but might depend on your budget. Some options include Giver of Runes, Esper Sentinel, Solitude, Dauthi Voidwalker, Orcish Bowmasters, Leonin Arbiter, Skyclave Apparition, Grief, Dark Confidant, Thraben Inspector, and Archon of Emeria

Yeah, those changes seem good. A lock or a tax would be something like Leonin Arbiter to hate on fetches, Blood Moon to hate on lands, Chalice of the Void to hate on everything, etc.

IHATENAMES on Life gain cat deck

I think this is a fun and interesting challenge to make lifegain cats good in modern. But first thing you should do is focus to clarify the identity of the deck. Leaning into Cats let's you better utilize a great lord. But you want multiple small cats maube tokens as there are a couple good ones to later pump for a lethal swing or tempo your opponent out makeing spot removal worse. Or lifegain which can play the Soul Warden effects and other noncat lifegain payoffs like your Ajani's Pridemate

Suggestions: I assume you are trying to stay budget most of these are a couple dollars. There might be a few more expensive cards that could be great with some deck building concessions like going green for more cats and Collected Company or focusing 1 2 and 3 drops and play Aether Vial

Kaheera, the Orphanguard pump cats. Can also be used as companion with some deck building restrictions

Leonin Arbiter All hail CAT JESUS. Seriously. It's a great card to slow combo decks otherwise it's a 2/2 body for 2. Worst case it deserves a Sideboard slot

Leonin Vanguard 1 drop. Gains 1 life a turn when you have 3 total creatures great curve starter for a cat deck

Regal Caracal create 2 cats. Then all your cats gain lifelink. Synergies for days

Ajani, Strength of the Pride - make Ajani's Pridemate ultimate is not impossible to clear the way so you can swing for game. +gains life. All great things.

Sideboard tech

Lion Sash graveyard hate on a cat. Or pump another creature

Felidar Retreat stick this vs control and it can take over a game

Seht's Tiger 4 drop neat vs damage based combos. Interesting but not great.

Leonin Arbiter could work! Since the video was posted, mono-white decks like this have been exploding onto the metagame! Mostly because the original creator, @HankTheObese, keeps on dominating challenge tournaments with this deck! Some of the variants of the deck do deviate from Humans, and I remember seeing a few decks with Leonin Arbiter!

I like the list a lot - my only concern was Thalia, Guardian of Thraben as it seemed to trip you up about as often as it helped you. I’m wondering if Leonin Arbiter might be a better fit, as while it doesn’t benefit from being human, it will undoubtably cause a similar amount of disruption for any opponent using fetches.

I thank you for your recommendations and definitely agree about the Arcane Signet, I think I may have added it in as habit since I usually run multicolor decks. I swapped out Leonin Arbiter with Preston, the Vanisher you suggested, he's going to be fun. I wasn't sure about the Teleportation Circle since you have to do it, but looking at my cards I don't see it hurting any. I thank you, again!

Some thoughts:

  • Urza's Saga has no place here - the only artifact it can grab is Aether Vial... and getting Vial down on turn 4 is pretty useless.

  • You have 5 Leonin Arbiter in this deck (1 mainboard and 4 sideboard) - your deck can only have 4 of any card total. Personally i'd move the Arbiter into the mainboard and ditch Aven Mindcensor entirely, as that's a much slower/clumsier card.

  • 19 lands is waaay too low for a Taxes deck. You want to be running at least 23 lands imo - especially with your quantity of 3-drops. In particular for your land choices, you'll find Blast Zone does nothing for you in almost all games, and really you should be running much higher quantities of Ghost Quarter and Field of Ruin so that you can make the most of Leonin Arbiter.

  • If you're unable to run at least 3 Stoneforge Mystic for budget reasons, then i'd say its better to run none. The artifacts they're meant to search for are more likely to trip you up than help you with such a low number (Kaldra Compleat is never getting into play in this deck). Even if you manage to get 3-4 Stoneforge Mystic into the deck, I wouldn't suggest running more than a single copy of Kaldra Compleat or Maul of the Skyclaves - These cards are awesome when you can grab them with Mystic then cheat them in, but pretty terrible if you draw them naturally. You want these to be "toolbox" options for Mystic, and limit their quantity.

  • Personally I'd ditch Cloudsteel Kirin... it's just too likely to be a liability and do-nothing card. Maybe its worth a sideboard slot at-best.

  • There's no point running Spellskite when you could just be running the full playset of Giver of Runes

  • really try to find room for that 4th Aether Vial!
