Really like this build. Consider revisiting this with new cat tribal stuff like:

And more potentially coming in Dominaria United. This is a fire build where a few newer pieces such as these could make all the difference.

Territorial skycat is a little awkward to build around, but since you are in selesnya have you considered a cat tribal variant?

Steppe Lynx, Wild Nacatl , Loam Lion , Qasali Ambusher to get use out of lands. Feline Sovereign, Pride Sovereign, King of the Pride as lords.

Scythe Tiger in the sideboard for control matchups.

It'd certainly offer an aggro strategy to mix things up with your regular playgroup, so that they can't overprepare for this midrange/combo style.

I really don't like replicating a deck unless it's somewhat rare and original. So I'm most likely not going to use a Rakdos pyromanncer. Most of my decks are indeed replicas, but they're pioneer so they don't seem to be popular around this website. So far, my favorite decks that I've actually played are pioneer selesnya cats tribal and pioneer azorius defense-damage. Perhaps you can help me with keeping tempo on these two decks? I've noticed that usually these two decks require at least 4 mana before actually changing the game. I'll probably delete this deck, considering that my staple is Rat Colony and it costs 2 mana. Isn't that a large sum of MV for a 1/1 with adding one to power? Although, my cats deck is similar, but better because most of my cats are 1/1 tokens and lifelink and plus there are synergies with Pride Sovereign and Ajani's Pridemate.

Help with these, perhaps?

Raining Cats and Dogs Nice work bdodds, I think you have selected a handful of great cards but I'd think you could benefit from an earlier CatDog play and cheaper creatures to really start raining cats and dogs. Even without Aluren, every creature coming in with an extra token produces insane value. Especially considering your general's ability.

Below, I would like to outline 4 core concepts and considerations. Ramp, Creatures, Protection, Draw.

Ramp - Prioritizing cards that help you play Rin & Seri turn 3! Nature's Lore Rampant Growth Three Visits Boros Signet Selesnya Signet Gruul Signet Talisman of Conviction Talisman of Unity Talisman of Impulse Fellwar Stone This should be easy to replace the ramp packaging you already have. Look to cut cards like Explosive Vegetation, Chromatic Lantern, Obelisk of Naya, etc.

Creatures - Prioritizing 3CMC or less and upping your creature count to closer to 30! Think about adding creatures that fullfill multiple roles and allow you to run less other stuff. Qasali Pridemage is a great example cause it can pump a swinger +1/+1 as well as remove a pesky enchant or artifact.

Cheap Utility Kitties- Adorned Pouncer Brimaz, King of Oreskos Bronzehide Lion Initiate's Companion King of the Pride Leonin Relic-Warder Oreskos Explorer Pride Sovereign Qasali Ambusher I like the returners you have for multiple cast triggers too! Can get stupid with Aluren... Whitemane Lion Temur Sabertooth Fleetfoot Panther ? Snow Hound

Cheap Utility Doggos- Abzan Beastmaster Ainok Guide Bolt Hound Resolute Watchdog Selfless Savior

Some real cheap beefers could be nice considering they make a token, but could also see not making the cut- Wild Nacatl Loam Lion Leonin Vanguard Isamaru, Hound of Konda Sacred Cat

Protection/Return - Build a huge board and keep it protected! Unbreakable Formation Rootborn Defenses Heroic Intervention Teferi's Protection Asceticism Marshal's Anthem Kindred Boon Akroma's Will Flawless Maneuver

Draw(ish) - The cheaper the cards in hand the more you gonna empty and wanna draw! Skullclamp Colossal Majesty Elemental Bond Beast Whisperer Fecundity Garruk's Uprising Descendants' Path Realmwalker Hunter's Insight Snake Umbra Lifecrafter's Bestiary Mentor of the Meek Guardian Project Return of the Wildspeaker Shamanic Revelation Slate of Ancestry Collective Unconscious Camaraderie

General good cards for Cat/Dog: Maskwood Nexus Mirror Entity Crib Swap Felidar Retreat Basilisk Collar Thousand-Year Elixir Rings of Brighthearth Seht's Tiger Shields of Velis Vel Naya Charm Kindred Summons Volatile Claws Beastmaster Ascension Titanic Ultimatum Hour of Reckoning Triumph of the Hordes Finale of Devastation Idyllic Tutor Winds of Abandon Lightning Greaves (secret lair dog art!) Coat of Arms Swiftfoot Boots Impact Tremors Rhythm of the Wild Aura Shards Shared Animosity Mirari's Wake Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip Any Cheap Changelings really...

Rith's Grove or Ash Barrens provides great mana fixing. Let's say you don't have white, but your hand has a lot of white spells. Either of those lands ensures you get a white source untapped the turn you draw it. Abundant Growth is another valuable card as it provides a permanent source of color fixing and you draw a card off of it meaning it won't take away too much from your strategy of cats and dogs.

As for creatures I'd recommend Bolt Hound over Zodiac Dog. Same cost and stats, but Mountainwalk is sort of an outdated keyword and Bolt Hound effectively pumps all of the cats and dogs. If you'd rather keep Zodiac Dog for artwork then a good mana-fixer would be Lush Growth as it gives you all three of your deck's colors or if you don't need it for color-fixing you could put it on one of your opponent's lands effectively making the dog unblockable against non-red decks. I would still advocate Abundant Growth over Lush Growth just for the card draw as that's better than the small scale interaction. If you want a card that can do both effects there's Nylea's Presence, but that card costs one more mana than either card. Personally, I'd advise Bolt Hound and Abundant Growth but you do have other options if you'd rather deviate from that.

The deck also feels like it has a lack of cats. I think a Pride Sovereign would do wonders to boost the deck's cats without taking away too much from the dogs. I think you could remove a Zodiac Dog and a Release the Dogs to fit two in. Exert is a bit of an unconventional ability but you can keep track by putting a marker on it and removing the marker on upkeep instead of untapping it.

Glad to help!

Very fair points on Always Watching!

And that's tough, staying on a higher creature count for CoCo is totally valid. +2 Sovereign over Whitemane is not a bad idea, it costs more to cast but if you're getting them through CoCo anyway that isn't going to be an issue (and Whitemana ends up costing even more when you consider the tempo loss). I've never played with CoCo myself so it's hard to say whether it should stay or go, but it's probably a staple for a reason and keeping it in might be best in the end. Out of curiosity, do you own the Secret Lair art already? Some of those are so gorgeous, but god, I just cannot afford them right now haha. And if you don't have them yet and do take them out, you'll at least end up with a much more budget friendly deck.

Thanks for checking out my profile!! You're totally right about the chump blocking, haha. And I think I know exactly what might help! Brave the Elements gets everyone but Pride Sovereign through, and it can also double as cheap protection. You can only do it once, but often that's just what you need. For more permanent effects that affect everyone and don't cost a huge amount of mana, I sadly can't think of anything off the top of my head. As for space, right now you don't have the mainboard room for it and that could cost you some games, but if you keep it in the sideboard you'll have a safe choice for boarding in against decks that go wide or that feature a lot of removal.

ellie-is — Thanks once again for your comment and help!

I pretty much agree with all your evaluations. I was also leaning toward Honor of the Pure and Radiant Destiny. As you say, Honor not affecting Pride Sovereign is irrelevant.

I do recognize that Always Watching is pretty much strictly better in this deck (cuz yeah, I'm only generating tokens with Sovereign's ability if I'm on the defense and blocking with him.... and sometimes not even then, as I'd then lose him as a blocker for the next turn). But of all the anthems, Watching has the most egregious artwork — it's creepy and absolutely doesn't fit. Lions are majestic, which is why I can get behind stained glass and god rays in the art. LoL

I agree on the others. They're just not as good or too slow. I do like the combat trick factor of Force, but I'm not sure how to fit it in.

Speaking of, as much as I agree with you that Whitemane Lion should be the one to go, I don't really want to go below 26 hits for CoCo. (In my Modern Elves, I had 36 creatures for Coco!) Until WotC prints another good lion, Whitemane will have to stay. :\ I've considered -2 Whitemane for +2 Sovereign, but I haven't tried that yet.


So on to a different question.... I was checking out your profile, and saw your Saproling deck (love the idea, by the way! Haven't had a chance to take a thorough look yet, but I plan to leave a comment and +1). Anyways, saw your deck, and all I could think was.... Damn, she'll pump so many Saprolings out, she'll just keep chump-blocking my lions and I'll never get them through! So do you know of any efficient ways to give the team evasion like trample or flying (though that's not very on theme)?

Although even if you suggest something awesome, I'm not sure what to take out without compromising CoCo. Maybe I need to just take CoCo out and focus in another direction.... despite the new lion art CoCo has in its Secret Lair version....
