If you truly want it to be aggro I would lower the curve a bit. Skyhunter Skirmisher isn't that great and pretty slow, I recommend Adorned Pouncer. It's only two mana, and has an eternalize ability to get a 4/4 double strike late game.

I highly recommend splashing red, for the best one drop aggro cat of all time Wild Nacatl. It also gives you access to 4x Lightning Bolt which you probably want, and maybe some other classic zoo cards like Atarka's Command.

Conclave Tribunal is most definitely not what you want to running for removal in an aggro deck. The card is quite slow, and tapping your creatures to cast it means you can't attack with those creatures. If you stay in GW i recommend Path to Exile, and if you splash red I'd run Prismatic Ending to supplement bolt.

The manabase needs work. 25 lands is a lot, even for control decks. Definitely way too many here. I recommend around 22. You probably want more duals as well. I don't know what your budget is, but here are some reasonably priced duals: Overgrown Farmland, Branchloft Pathway  Flip. If you're trying to keep the deck pretty budget I wouldn't bother running snarl lands and would run these two duals instead.

If you don't have a budget I'd go ahead with the red splash and run fetchlands like Windswept Heath and Arid Mesa, along with 2 other shocks Sacred Foundry and Stomping Ground.

Thought I'd come over and check out your deck! Looks like a fun version of Odric to play.

I'd suggest prioritizing Flying and Double Strike as abilities as your creatures will hit harder and be able to get through. Fortunately White has a ton of flying and double strike creatures to choose from. You have a lot of First Strike which is an ok ability, but not as impactful as others in Commander.

I would only use equipment for Haste and card draw, two abilities White really struggles with. Lightning Greaves, Haunted Cloak, Mask of Memory, and Skullclamp are all great. The problem with using equipment for abilities that White already has is that you are actually having LESS damage on the board. A Skyhunter Skirmisher is better than Fireshrieker because it's actually a body doing some damage as well as being more mana efficient (no equip cost).

Hope this helps!

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?

Feral Prowler over Generous Stray, even better would be Skullclamp but your deck seems to be budget. Arahbo, Roar of the World is to slow (great in commander). Skyhunter Skirmisher is almost always better than Leonin Skyhunter. Kaheera, the Orphanguard should be more than a one of in main board, also even after companion was killed as a mechanic it should still probably be run as a companion since you already meet the requirement. Guardians' Pledge is just bad, there are better versions of it.

Secluded Steppe should never be run in a 60 card non singleton format, Stirring Wildwood could be run as a two of if you really want to but I wouldn't run more than two of them. Temple of Plenty and all other temple's are to slow, just run basics or throw in the money for shocks/sac lands.

Not sure why your making a budget vintage deck, chances are whatever you want to run will be modern legal. (note Skullclamp isn't modern legal)

Skyhunter Skirmisher and Sword of Vengeance are two cards that fit the theme and synergize with Odric. Other than that, Honor of the Pure and Benalish Marshal would be good additions, but you wouldn't want to pull your curve up to far.

Hey, good job upgrading the precon.

You could cut several higher CMC cards to reduce the avg. CMC which can help to speed up the deck. An advantage of Kaheera is it's a three drop anthem effect for Cats therefore more one drop and two drop Cats you can get on the battlefield before you play Kaheera the more attacking you can do. Lower CMC Cats are also better with lots of equipment since easier to have mana to equip to the turn you play a Cat. Arahbo is the high CMC Cat you want to cast and it's easy access in the Command Zone.

Cats to consider adding:

Cats with double strike become real threats when their power is increased. Entity is a Cat since it's a changeling; it's also a mana sink to make all Cats high power/toughness until end of turn. When you activate Entity it changes the power/toughness of each Cat you control, then any other effects that increase the power/toughness of Cats are also applied to each Cat. Nacatl and Loam can benefit from dual lands that are both a Plains and a Forest: Temple Garden, Canopy Vista, Scattered Groves. Farseek and Nature's Lore can search for one of these lands.


Other cards to consider adding:

  • Sigarda's Aid: can cast equipment at instant speed and can equip to a creature you control for no mana cost when equipment ETB.
  • Eladamri's Call: instant creature tutor.
  • Open the Armory: tutor for an equipment.
  • Talisman of Unity
  • Selesnya Signet
  • Elemental Bond: draw when a 3 or more power Cat ETB. If there's effects that increase the power/toughness of Cats then these effects are applied as the Cat ETB. If these effects give the Cat 3 or more power then you can draw when it ETB. Works with tokens also.
  • Duelist's Heritage: give a Cat double strike until end of turn.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Elfhame Palace
  • Vivid Grove
  • Vivid Meadow
  • Jareth, Leonine Titan
  • Jedit Ojanen of Efrava
  • Rout
  • Nissa's Pilgrimage
  • Hero's Blade
  • Moonsilver Spear
  • Sigiled Sword of Valeron
  • Loxodon Warhammer
  • Icon of Ancestry
  • Frondland Felidar
  • Huntmaster Liger
  • Jazal Goldmane
  • Zendikar Resurgent
  • Door of Destinies

Good luck with your deck.

Leonin Skyhunter

Skyhunter Skirmisher

Also, Sabertooth Nishoba got erratad to be a cat if you want a really nice beater.

I would go with Arahbo, Roar of the World and with a tactic of always having one or two cats on the field trying to hit people. Go tall. Alms Collector , Enlightened Ascetic , Kinjalli's Sunwing , Lost Leonin , Skyhunter Skirmisher , Stalking Leonin , Temur Sabertooth , Whitemane Lion , some ramp, removals, protection, a board wipe or two and some equipment. would take out Jareth, Leonine Titan because too much mana, Jazal Goldmane, Nacatl War-Pride , Qasali Slingers and Jedit Ojanen of Efrava for the same reason. Also cool are Heroic Intervention and Selesnya Charm. Stave Off has a cat on it.
