MrHawtStuff,

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.

Cheers

Just some cards to consider if you want to stick with your game plan: Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Pride of the Clouds, Leonin Skyhunter and Arrester's Zeal. Also I would consider taking a look at your mana base considering how much money you want to spend.

Hey hirurux,

Fellow Arahbo, Roar of the World since the pre-con Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats

I found having too many cats wasn't very useful, I went a bit extreme, down to 14 cats, but 28 is a lot. Arahbo, Roar of the World only Eminence triggers one cat, and unless you're in a state with a ton of mana to activate the ability for multiple cats, not really needed.

How I solved this problem, was more creature tutor cards (instead of more cats), so Sylvan Tutor , Time of Need , I got a Survival of the Fittest for xmas one year which was cool. Chord of Calling , Eldritch Evolution even Congregation at Dawn are all viable to. The right cat at the right time vs. drawing more cats. Initiate's Companion , Leonin Skyhunter , Steppe Lynx feel like some easy cuts.

Three Visits was reprinted in a current set, gives you another Nature's Lore .

Are you primarily trying to kill everyone with combat damage? Beastmaster Ascension maybe?

I would get some trample in there Shadowspear and Rancor perhaps, that way 1/1 tokens don't become a nuisance to you.

Fumigate seems wrong.

Might reduce in lands, do you find yourself flooded, eliminate anything that comes into play tapped with no strong ability. Your not running toward a Tooth and Nail or anything so likely can miss a T4-6 land drop and still be in good shape, can also Land Tax or Archaeomancer's Map or Kodama's Reach to get more lands in hand. Evolving Wilds , Krosan Verge , Path of Ancestry could be some easy. If you're worried about mana fixing, fetch lands are great Windswept Heath but also the off-color ones like Wooded Foothills , Flooded Strand , etc.

Teferi's Protection to dodge board wipes?

I might add an alt win-con, Triumph of the Hordes might be one, but having a backup plan, maybe Grafted Exoskeleton or perhaps Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants to bring back Lost Leonin . Bala Ged Recovery  Flip for Triumph of the Hordes , I dunno something?

The Great Henge !

Hope you find something useful here. +1

I like the idea of Daybreak Chimera, but you'll get more value out of Conclave Phalanx for the life gain and because it is cast with convoke and not white mana source, it can often get cast just as early. Also it pairs nicely with Kor Skyfisher

Doomed Traveler is also a great turn one play as it can block early game and the spirit token it creates is good for getting damage in.

If you want to cast Daybreak Chimera earlier I would suggest running Leonin Skyhunter as it has good evasion with flying and is an excellent turn two play

Feral Prowler over Generous Stray, even better would be Skullclamp but your deck seems to be budget. Arahbo, Roar of the World is to slow (great in commander). Skyhunter Skirmisher is almost always better than Leonin Skyhunter. Kaheera, the Orphanguard should be more than a one of in main board, also even after companion was killed as a mechanic it should still probably be run as a companion since you already meet the requirement. Guardians' Pledge is just bad, there are better versions of it.

Secluded Steppe should never be run in a 60 card non singleton format, Stirring Wildwood could be run as a two of if you really want to but I wouldn't run more than two of them. Temple of Plenty and all other temple's are to slow, just run basics or throw in the money for shocks/sac lands.

Not sure why your making a budget vintage deck, chances are whatever you want to run will be modern legal. (note Skullclamp isn't modern legal)

Leonin Skyhunter

Skyhunter Skirmisher

Also, Sabertooth Nishoba got erratad to be a cat if you want a really nice beater.

It looks like you're pretty heavy into life gain. Since that's the case, I would drop 2 Leonin Skyhunter for 2 more Ajani's Pridemate . I would also drop the 2 Ephemerate for 2 more Path to Exile . From Ephemerate you're not really getting much except life, which probably isn't worth it. In addition I would change the 2 Gods Willing for 2 Brave the Elements . I would also change 2 Healer of the Pride and 2 Ring of Thune for 4 King of the Pride .

I always really liked white weenie/knight tribal... i think History of Benalia might be a little slow and maybe Light from Within / Honor of the Pure might be a better way to go... Condemn is probably a better alternative to Oust but Path to Exile is probably the best choice for spot removal... Some other really good knights to consider are Fiendslayer Paladin , Hero of Bladehold , Knight of the White Orchid , Leonin Skyhunter and Mirran Crusader .
