Path to Exile Discussion

So, just to clarify, their land will be destroyed unless they can otherwise prevent it with a separate effect.
If they don't run basics in their deck it is simply put NOT YOUR PROBLEM.

I think most people are (roughly) on the same page about power levels. Your version of a list seems pretty similar to a few other ones I've seen. While reading through the comments, though... something struck me. What if we're going about this the wrong way? What if instead of measuring a deck as a whole, we measured cards with power levels?
Cards like Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile would be 5/5 or 10/10 or whatever due to their efficiency, while cards like Vengeance or Aerial Assault would be something like a 2/5 or 1/5 or whatever due to their higher cost and sorcery speed.
The deck's overall power level would be the total power level of all the cards contained in it. If the scale is a 10, the highest decks would be in the 900 range. Then again, we'd probably just being having the same argument/discussion about individual cards power levels instead of decks.... but it was just a thought I had.

Hey i want to give you my two cents. At first, every cat friend is a friend of mine. I played cat tribal since mh1 when king of the pride came out (as the only cat lord besides caracal) and played it on many fnms and even a 600 people tournament where i came out with a 3-3. My deck is slightly different, i highly prefer coco, since the 3 Lords are all at 3 mana. Together with coco, brimaz is a real bomb, when he attacks at turn 4 with a coco as a combat trick,you can easily attack for 8. Coco also fits in pretty well because of its new Ajani artwork :) i sadly didnt make any good experiences with ambusher and sacred cat. But i didn't play modern the last year and i see that it would be a counter to Ragavan, maybe i give it another try. I would cut madcap, Rancor is straight up better.
I also play 4 Path to Exile, 2 Regal Caracal and Force of Virtue. If i couldnt use path or draw the caracal to early, i can discard them for force. Mana Tithe is also possible in this constellation. But this is my personal preference, rancor and bolts should work here.
20 lands are not enough in my opinion. Your mana curve ends with 4 drops, i would say 22-23 lands will give you a much better curve.
Quasali Ambusher could find a place in the sideboard. There will be matchups where you dont even get attacked.
All of the above is just from my personal experience. I dont want to push you in a direction you dont like. Keep having fun playing cats!

Doing it without Tron lands could give you a brew that looks very similar to existing Soulherder archtypes (just without Soulherder)... something like this might be almost-competitive (although at this point, it's a very different list to what you're trying to achieve, so not sure if this is the route you'd want to go down):
- 4x Panharmonicon
- 4x Noble Hierarch
- 4x Coiling Oracle
- 4x Ice-Fang Coatl
- 4x Eternal Witness
- 1x Venser, Shaper Savant
- 1x Acidic Slime
- 1x Thragtusk
- 1x Hornet Queen
- 4x Ephemerate
- 3x Counterspell
- 3x Force of Negation
- 4x Path to Exile
- 4x Snow-Covered Forest
- 4x Snow-Covered Island
- 2x Snow-Covered Plains
- 1x Temple Garden
- 1x Hallowed Fountain
- 2x Flooded Strand
- 2x Misty Rainforest
- 2x Windswept Heath
- 4x Prismatic Vista

Fury and Solitude would be the equivalent to Lightning Bolt and Path to Exile. BUT it is every time a 2 for 1. Your spell and your exiled card for the target you want to be removed. Fury could be a 2 for 4, so thats not that bad, but not in all cases.

psionictemplar good idea, thanks for the feedback! Do you have any recommendations on what specifically to cut? I am not experienced when it comes to playing with the new evoke powerhouses (like Fury and Solitude , which is why I ask. Magmatic Insight , Manamorphose , Surgical Extraction , Lightning Bolt , Path to Exile are all cards we could definitely potentially cut for them.

MixDr0n3 thank you for taking the time to type all that out! This is the first version of the deck and it is still quite rough indeed. Idk how I messed it up but Stony Silence was supposed to be Rest in Peace, I'll fix that right away.
As for a lot of the other things I'll start by saying I haven't been terribly active in mtg since around ixalan. I made a few decks and play online a little but I'm looking to make a full return to the game. That said Prismatic Ending is a card I'm still unsure about 4 of. I'm thinking it'll probably make it to 3 but with the Path to Exile and Fateful Absence idk if I need 4 of it as well. I also don't know the meta all that well so I could be wrong and further testing will help me figure out my numbers better. Shark Typhoon is another I'm testing I've seen it in control lists and it's interesting but I'm also not sold on it quite yet even though I really do like cycling it for flash uncounterable creatures.
It is meant to be a control leaning midrange deck and I agree I probably will need a few more mainboard creatures. With my payoff Geist of Saint Traft is a one of because he's really easy to kill in combat (when I was first making this list I wasn't thinking about my swords giving him psudo-unblockable) and his copy count will probably increase. Tireless Tracker I see as both engine and payoff because of how he can scale through the game. As well as Teferi, Hero of Dominaria making it hard to lose if I get his emblem off.
Ceremonious Rejection is just anti-tron because I remember it being a problem back in the day. Anticognition does seem like a more flexible card and I'll do some testing with it and probably run it, I've never seen it before. Weather the Storm is only for playing against storm/eggs and Summary Dismissal was for storm and if a deck wants to actually cast Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. Vendilion Clique is honestly only side because I never even thought of it as a mainboard card tbh. I don't remember ever running it main in blue moon, delver, or control. Idk why it's just never crossed my mind as that's where I've always seen it and had it. Qasali Pridemage is run over something like Broken Bond because even if the enchant/artifact he's brought in for doesn't come up he's still a creature and can be used for beats. I'll see how running a non-creature for that is in this list for sure though.
Thank you again for the time it took to type all that. I really do appreciate it and you didn't come off as a jackass at all. You were giving advice and that's what I asked for.

I like the brew! Some thoughts:
I personally feel like winning with the crabs is both adding another colour unnecessarily, and taking the slow-route to victory. Swapping them for Martyr of Sands and Serra Ascendant for example, gives you an overall much faster clock. That would also allow you to run Emeria, The Sky Ruin in your landbase for extra induced-misery.
I’m not convinced that Day of Judgment is a viable choice here. Yes, you do get a ton of your stuff back over time, but the Kami/Frog should already be providing a softlock on your opponent, and DoJ doesn’t help you if that lock becomes broken anyway. Path to Exile seems stronger as it’s more likely to buy you a turn if your only Kami/Frog gets bolted on end-step.
Your sideboard needs waay more interaction. This archtypes biggest weakness will be decks that are trying to combo, ala-goldfish-to-the-win - so you need ways to disrupt those plans imo. More Path to Exile, Strict Proctor, Eidolon of Rhetoric, and Sanctum Prelate all work wonders here. If you’ve changed to the abovementioned Martyr build, then burn isn’t an issue - but if you’re still on the crab-train, it’s a major threat, so Kor Firewalker is prolly needed sideboard
