Waiting in the Weeds Discussion

Some cards to consider:

Icon of Ancestry Anthem and some card search in one.

Heraldic Banner Ramp and anthem in one.

Unclaimed Territory Could sub for one of your comes-into-play tapped lands.

Waiting in the Weeds Older card but fits the token/go wide strategy. Could depend on how people that tend to play green in your local meta.

Ravenrose: Thanks for the comment and the upvote. Siege Behemoth already is in there. I own a Wild Pair . That would indeed be great in here. I have no adephage, but I'll try to get one. The hydra isn't that great here. I didn't know Waiting in the Weeds , but now I love it. It isn't useful here unfortunately..

You probably think me strange when I say I think Managorger Hydra should be included on cuteness alone. Wild Pair is also a fun enchantment. Siege Behemoth and Giant Adephage could also be included. Waiting in the Weeds is a fun card. I don't know about you but I think the new spoilers Keeper of Fables is a good addition.

I hope this helps!

The first thing you need to do is try to decide how you're going to win. I see you have the option to go for a Lab Man win along with Enter the Infinite but I don't think you have the quantity or quality of creatures to go for combat damage. If anyone is running removal I think you'll have trouble.

I don't think that Magus of the Candelabra is doing much for you here, if you had lands like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Gaea's Cradle, or Cabal Coffers then he would be pulling his weight. I would definitely run some mana dorks, particularly Karametra's Acolyte and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds. And because of Kruphix's neat ability if you can abuse things untapping on other people's turn all the better! I don't know your budget but I would definitely suggest Murkfiend Liege, Seedborn Muse (or if you're broke like me) Slowborn Muse. But why not take advantage of it even more! The Big Green Hungry Guy makes it so any green mana you had stays green which can be nice. Yeva, Nature's Herald gives you another way to drop your beasties when it's inopportune for other people.

Ashnod's Altar is dope but do you really want to be sacrificing what few critters you have? (Other than poor Steve) Otherwise I'd say your artifacts look not bad.

Waiting in the Weeds may be worth thinking about as you could have mostly untapped forests and therefore a schwack of kitties and depending how aggressive your meta is you may want to have combat tricks like Fog, AEtherize, and as much as I loathe it, Cyclonic Rift. Actually, you may want to think about shifting more toward mass bounce rather than countermagic. It'll be easier for you to get a good swing in once you're ready.

Personally I'm not a huge fan of Whir of Invention or Imprisoned in the Moon, they work but I think there are better options for you. One other thing you should look at because I think it's a hilarious and can be a sneaky way to win is Helix Pinnacle

Hope some of this helped!

Thanks :) I'll be asking for feline ferocity for Christmas so will start building this in 2018.

Waiting in the Weeds is pretty cool although they never printed green cat tokens for it. I would play it here but i don't run enough forests to quite make it work, i have a copy though so might end up in my mono green tokens deck. But if your kitty deck leans a but more into the green than mine it's a good pretty addition.

I'm really hoping they print a three colour cat commander, loads more kitties out there to play!

This is basically the list I'm aiming for, but don't have the money for yet. Slowly, slowly, I will get there. However, I have my own additions as well, including Arahbo, Roar of the World being the commander.

Love the deck mate, I'll definitely be thinking about some of these choices; looking at you Ajani Steadfast and Shield of the Oversoul!!

I'm thinking about a cat tokens Commander deck that should be pretty good. I didn't even know about Waiting in the Weeds! Do want.
