Lost Leonin

Creature — Phyrexian Cat Soldier

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.

  1. Enchantments + Phyrexian Theme Phyrexian Censor Phyrexian Awakening

  2. More Infect + Toxic Support (& more Phyrexians) Priests of Norn Lost Leonin Shriek Raptor Tine Shrike

  3. Thematic Ramp Options Glistening Sphere Defiler of Faith

  4. Cards that should just be in this deck because they're good Smothering Tithe Mondrak, Glory Dominus Akroma's Will

You have a pretty good start here. Among the monowhite creatures with infect you still need are Lost Leonin and Tine Shrike

One issue with decks relying on poison counters for the victory is cards which can prevent them including, but not limited to, Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Solemnity. These can be dealt with cards including, but not limited to, Invoke the Divine and Revoke Existence. Elish Norn should be enough to keep Melira off the battlefield. Leeches (which would also coordinate alright with Phyrexian Unlife) could do damage to an opponent if they already have poison counters and you're unable to remove those cards.

I'll be adding more later. Happy Hunting!

Kor Spiritdancer a better shram in the deck id run both

Eidolon of Countless Battles + for each aura

Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist moves auras especially for faith fetter type effects

Heliod's Pilgrim aura tutor

Boonweaver Giant aura tutor onto a body

Umbra Mystic Totem armor effects in general are good. One of the recent precons was aura based id look at that one for ideas!

Nomad Mythmaker recursion

Skybind interesting flicker effect for enchantment perms with sigardas aid out you can blink your lands to cast more auras next opponents turn. or flicker tokens etb creature ect.

Mistveil Plains return auras to re tutor for with your commander.

Homeward Path vultron doesn't like opponents taking their toys

Lost Leonin Infect if you choose is an option here is one to look at.

Flickerform Decent especially if you run auras that etb draw

Hero of Iroas cost reducer that gets a benefit when targeted.

Faith Unbroken removal aura

Sage's Reverie HIGHLY suggested card draw and powerful aura

Sphere of Safety If you want a late game plan this might give you time to do something else like Approach of the Second Sun

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!

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.

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.
