All fair points! So in past matches I have flung other creatures after equipping either Nettlecyst, Blackblade Reforged, and Strata Scythe to the creature. Usually this is more late game after Maraxus tax is too high.

The thing with Champion's Helm and the importance of hexproofing Maraxus is you want to wait to fling him until your turn for maximum damage, since a lot of lands are going to be tapped after casting him. Also you don’t always have a fling-like card in hand so he sometimes needs protection while you dig.

Delina is really fun because I’ve casted fling on the copy of Maraxus after combat damage, it’s pretty funny when that happens.

Maybe Urabras is a good cut, 5 CMC is a lot for an effect you have to wait to use

Options: Strata Scythe, Quietus Spike, Whispersilk Cloak, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Fireshrieker, Haunted Cloak, O-Naginata, Shadowspear, Tenza, Godo's Maul

If you let me know more what you're looking for, I can probably tailor my recommendations a little more.

Maybe use some of the creatures with Prowess? Especially the Eidolon of Countless Battles.

True Conviction, Strata Scythe, Blackblade Reforged and Spirit Loop (Spirit Loop is not Lifelink so you gain twice as much life]).

sassybill1540 on Kemba - A Kat with too many swords!

I like that you're utilizing the cat tokens so much. My list just durdles with them as blockers and not much else.

How often do Robe of Stars and Godsend nonbo with all of your pro-white? I tried Godsend shortly after it was released and wasn't satisfied with the results, but Robe seems VERY good.

A lot of your deck has the standard Kemba stuff, which is fantastic. Your lands, sorceries, enchantments, and instants are all worthy and I couldn't think of anything to replace from those.

Creatures and artifacts had some thing I would suggest reconsidering due to CMC or general clumsiness (note I may be missing something, so take anything I say with a grain of salt):

Odric, Lunarch Marshal may be kind of meh, but you play into your tokens a lot more so it may be more helpful. Same with Raksha Golden Cub I love him, but he's very expensive.

Blackblade Reforged is comparable to Strata Scythe and either one can be better than the other in certain situations. I'm not convinced "giant buff with no evasion or anything else" is good enough for Kemba players, however. On that note, Colossus Hammer.

Mask of Avacyn just feels clunky with the equip costs, the shroud from Lightning Greaves is annoying to work around sometimes but it feels so good to turn two Greaves, turn three Kemba, attack. With Leonin Shikari you can always shuffle them around at instant speed.

Paradise Mantle is an early equipper, but how often do you find yourself using it for the mana ability? Something like Shuko may better serve purposes if you're just after a cheap equip.

Depending on how big your tokens get, Mentor of the Meek is a great repeatable way to draw cards, since Welcoming Vampire has the once per turn rider.

I love your use of the token sacrificers like Ashnod's Altar and Martyr's Cause specifically, I may have to test those out soon!

Looks to be a solid list and like a lot of fun to pilot. Some possible considerations for you: Brass Squire, Armory Automaton, Rogue's Passage, Key to the City, Whispersilk Cloak, Argentum Armor, Strata Scythe, Colossus Hammer and Fireshrieker (double strike triggers most of your swords a second time per turn.

Azor's Gateway  Flip, Strata Scythe

Have you considered more equipment? If you boost to 20, nuke something then move a sword or something to another creature you can drop below 20 and then boost back up again for another shot.

Sea-Dasher Octopus , Mystic Remora , and Thassa's Emissary would give you on flavor card draw which you could really use. Quicksilver Amulet and Back to Basics can really hinder opponents here. Also, Strata Scythe can get be fantastic with a combination of unblockable and basic land base. I love my sea monster deck, have fun!
