Qasali Pridemage Discussion

I'm curious what your experience was with Bloodbraid Elf . Cascade also gives you the cast trigger off of Hero of Precinct One . It's also crazy to think it's now a pretty budget card. Maybe because they are not as fun to play with?
I will like to advise that your 6 copies of Destructive Revelry (including Cindervines ), is a bit redundant and harmful. Especially if you already have the champ Qasali Pridemage . If you do put every single one in on a single game, you are very likely to start with one (or multiple) in the early game. This reduces your awesome creature output and likely ending with a poor mid to late game board-state. You don't have big and high CMC threats, so delaying the game into the late game can be a death threat to you. They are also mana restrictive (especially without fetchlands) and are strictly only answers to a particular threat, so they have a strong likelihood to sit in your hand wasting space
Here are some things to think about if your interested.
-The non-land permanent removal enchantments might be an option, if you want answers to specific permanent types in your sideboard, but it not have it as mana restrictive or type specific. Maybe even just creature stuff like Prison Term aggro might be funny against midrange or some aggro decks.
- Yasharn, Implacable Earth --Sideboard? It's at least interesting to think about.
- Rienne, Angel of Rebirth This would essential be the 1 of fun card to put in the deck that is of theme. Not needed.
- Aspect of Mongoose , Valorous Stance , Unbreakable Formation , Dauntless Escort , Gods Willing and many others are much more budget than Heroic Intervention . Plus you mainly want to protect your creatures anyway.
- Shield of the Oversoul may be interesting
I had more stuff to say but I realize this is alright long enough. Overall, I do like the idea of a multicoloured deck. I can see many possible directions a deck like this can go.

Interesting Modern Deck! Looks a lot like a Legacy Lands deck I played a while ago! Since the gameplan is creature based infect, Qasali Pridemage and Kataki, War's Wage are decent catch all sideboard options as well. Gaddock Teeg could be an option to help in a control matchup or something like turbo scapeshift/ tron. And you could also consider Spellskite for decks that run a lot of targeted removal or Valakut. And I mean Cavern of Souls is decent even to sideboard in control games with any tribal or tribal like deck, though the ideal play line you're describing really doesn't need that sort of mana and seems hungry for colored mana to cast spells, not creatures. Looks like a blast to pilot!

Trying this swap of creatures :

I'm currently searching for a nice cat-tribe-build and saw your deck. Nice Start :)
But 18 Creatures is way too lees. Also i don't think Sigarda's Aid pushes your gameplan that much forward as you have about a dozen equipment-cards. In this sense you have more creatures which would participate from Vanquisher's Banner / Icon of Ancestry in common than with Sigarda's Aid .
To get a bigger Battalion i would recommend at least the following creatures:
Bronzehide Lion - Hard to remove and comes back to make something other hard to remove
Fleecemane Lion - once it's monstrous it is a real threat
Feline Sovereign - pump-effect for all cats with a bonus if one of your cats lands a hit
Phantom Nishoba - nice finisher, hard to kill
Basri's Acolyte - support for the other Kitties
Qasali Pridemage - All Star who pumps a single attacker; nice side-effect

Nice to see a cat tribal Nethroi deck!
Arahbo, Roar of the World
a lot, a when Ikoria was released, I pondered to make an abzan cat tribal with Nethroi. But I ended building it normal graveyard synergy as I wantet to keep my classic Arahbo constructed.
Anyway, I know the flavor is that all your cats are legendary, an I love that, but I think if you want to play the deck more efficient without losing cat theme, you can do some changes:
Falthis, Shadowcat Familiar
in this particular deck is only a 2/2 vanilla, as your only commander Nethroi already has deathtouch. I love it, but in this particular case sadly doesn't do anything.
Cards you could add, knowing that aren't legendary, but they are cats that work very well with your deck:
Fleecemane Lion can became indestructible, and then you can mutate your commander on it, making a great indestructible menace and keeping that +1/+1 counter.
Fleetfoot Panther and Whitemane Lion can save one of your cats or can bounce your commander to keep doing his mutation and reanimating things. Bronzehide Lion also protects your creatures.
Qasali Pridemage you play it, control your opponent best artifacts or enchantments, dies and Nethroi will recover it later.
Necropanther to reanimate small cats or creatures, and can mutateo over your commander to repeat effects.
Feline Sovereign and Regal Caracal , if you go tribal, those are the best cats lords, in addition to Kaheera of course.
Rakshasa Debaser can be a wincon when you encore him.
Alms Collector for card draw and to control greedy card draws of enemies.
Phantom Nishoba and Phantom Tiger look scrapy, but they count 0 power when you reanimate them with Nethroi, and if you mutate Nethroi on them, you transform Nethroi into a crature that prevent all the damage that receibes, even if he loses all +1/+1 counters.
And playing something like Nethroi, believe me (I'm a Nethroi and a golgari player), you need graveyard synergy. If you don't, you'll find that you reached turn X, play Nethroi but you only can revive 1-2 sad creatures. You need to fill your graveyard before that.
Exmaples (of course there are much more):
Altar of Dementia
Life from the Loam
Eerie Ultimatum and Living Death you'll have much fun with those in this type of deck.
Hope that give you some ideas to improve the deck without changing its spirit.

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
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...

So I think most of the discussion has already been covered, but I like to ask a different question when considering a move to competitive formats from casual: what is it that you want to keep about the deck?
Is it important for you to remain cat tribal? There are no competitive cat tribal decks in any format (except maybe EDH if you build tuned Arahbo). So, the only thing you can do is upgrade the cats and removal suite to be legacy-legal, but it's not going to be a competitive deck in a true legacy meta. That might not matter to you if all of your friends are basically doing the same thing, but it's important to keep in mind that you won't be able to bridge into a legacy meta with the same deck.
Is it important for you to keep a creature aggro deck in Selesnya colors? Some of the other commenters have this covered, but you'd be looking at removing the cat lords and making this a Zoo deck, probably in Naya colors. This also isn't a true legacy deck any more, but it's much closer. You'd be able to run it at legacy FNMs or something and put up a decent fight.
Do you just want a legacy deck that retains the features of creature aggro and some of the same colors? This is how you would actually transition into a competitive legacy deck. I usually recommend MTGTop8 to get a sense of any new format. Looking at the meta, you could make the transition into a Death and Taxes build, which retains some of the creature-flicker and hatebears approach. (You might even be able to run it back a few years, splash green, and run Qasali Pridemage.) If you like Selesyna, you might be able to run a Bant Oko deck. In a similar vein you might like Maverick, which is usually a 3-4 color Punishing Fire and good creature pile. Of course, the downside with this approach is that these are real, and expensive, decks that take a long time to learn and optimize; but you'll have a legacy deck for life.
I don't think any one approach is better than another, seriously, it's just how you want to play. If what's important to you is that your whole playgroup wants to get on a more competitive level but keep your casual roots, that's what you should stick to. But with a better idea of what your ideal legacy deck and experience would look like, we can suggest better cards!
