Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

4 weeks ago

Hey Pwnographic,

It's pretty good, the vigilance doesn't do much since our cats only get the +3/+3 on our turn during/post combat phase. However, protecting key cats like Lost Leonin early. Later game he can become a double strike enabler as well.

Definitely a nice suggestion and worth some playtesting!


Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

3 months ago

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

Spirits on OMG Kitties Tribal!

3 months ago

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

Hi Inuecho,

Yeah!, I've played Lost Leonin (in fact I have a foil one back when New Phyrexia was in standar, I loved New Phyrexia) and I used him the firsts months C17 came out. It was very scary, but as you say, it usually tracked very much enemy attention, and got removed long before doing damage or to do the 10+ infect damage. The rest of my Arahbo deck have not infect (not Grafted exoesqueleton, not triumph of the hordes, etc.) so many times lost leonin dealt 5-6 infect damage, got removed and that infect damage became useless.

I really think Lost leonin it's a powerhouse in Arahbo if you modify the deck to play more around infect, double strike and maybe recursion. Also in 1 vr 1 EDH, but in multiplayer is more difficult. In my particular deck that wasn't the case, and combined with the metagame of my playgroup in the moment, I ended cuttin him.

Anyway, maybe in the future Lost leonin gets new tries in my deck, specially if we get more tools to make him shine (Maybe the return of Phyrexians in the future sets give us more phyrexian leonins!)

About Ajani, Caller of the Pride is nice and flavorful, but I prefer Duelist's Heritage wich is bassicaly the same (being honest, Ajani +1 is cute and his Ult is very unlikely to get in EDH, so his real deal is his -3 double strike effect), but Duelist being an enchantment is more durable (can't be attacked by creatures) and can be used as a very useful political tool, as you can offer give double strike to your opponents creatures if they don't attack you, for example. In general, I think this isn't the deck to play any Planeswalkers, as it's very offensive and exposes them very often.

Hello good sir this is such a neat decklist but there's no Lost Leonin nor Ajani, Caller of the Pride . Soo does your playgroup hate Infect or is it kinda spacious since it just gets removed on the turn it gets removed? The possible Turn 3 kill looks promising though (I know the probability is very low to get them on the spot)

BlackoutX on The Cat Returns

Greater Good is a better draw engine than Ajani, Mentor of Heroes (also cheaper with the reprint).

Grafted Exoskeleton, Sword of the Animist and Shadowspear are just good especially in this deck.

Hungry Lynx is overpriced and can really hurt you. Jareth, Leonine Titan is quite slow. Seht's Tiger doesn't do much for its cost. Edge of Autumn, why?

no Lost Leonin or Skyhunter Skirmisher?

Spirits on Arahbo Orphanguard Infect Beats

1 year ago

Hey Knixx,

I don't think Leonin Relic-Warder + Oblivion Ring + Felidar Guardian loops.

  1. Oblivion Ring on battlefield
  2. Leonin Relic-Warder ETB targeting Oblivion Ring
  3. Resolve Leonin Relic-Warder ETB exiling Oblivion Ring
  4. Felidar Guardian ETB targeting Leonin Relic-Warder
  5. Resolve Felidar Guardian ETB exiling Leonin Relic-Warder and returning to battlefield
  6. Leonin Relic-Warder LTB is placed on the stack
  7. Leonin Relic-Warder ETB is placed on the stack targeting ? (I think as Active Player, you can choose the order LTB/ETB or ETB/LTB but could be wrong, for simplicity put it LTB/ETB, either way nothing to target with LRW, Oblivion Ring is still exiled until you resolve the LTB, but targets are selected when an ability is placed on the stack)

Yannik, Scavenging Sentinel should be fine because he delays the return of the LRW. The Yannik, Scavenging Sentinel also doesn't target, so you can choose what to exile on resolution so if something happens to LRW in the meantime, you can still exile another creature. The loop makes a large creature like an Inkmoth Nexus.

Oblivion Ring + Parallax Wave + Felidar Guardian will have the same trouble when the Oblivion Ring LTB/ETB enter the stack at the same time. But doesn't Parallax Wave + Felidar Guardian loop without the Oblivion Ring anyway? as long as you active Parallax Wave ability PRIOR to resolving the Felidar Guardian (and any 3 other creatures), then resolve the Felidar Guardian's ETB Exiling and returning Parallax Wave with 5 fade counters. Mentioning the Oblivion Ring just confuses it, I would remove that.

For infect beats, it is important to note that the primary Infect win-con is actually:

Lost Leonin + Arahbo, Roar of the World Eminence + Ajani, Caller of the Pride or Berserk or Duelist's Heritage (double strike). The other things you mention Grafted Exoskeleton/Triumph of the Hordes/Inkmoth Nexus are really secondary. Note: Triumph of the Hordes also turns ANY cat into a Lost Leonin + Eminence + Double strike for win.

Your enablers look right Regal Caracal/Greenwarden of Murasa/Aura Shards/Ajani's Chosen for Felidar Guardian + Parallax Wave

Lotus Petal is a good Greenwarden of Murasa target for infinite mana as well to enable the spells.

I would get Ajani, Caller of the Pride back in, he's the best, not sure where he went. Hope this helps!
