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.

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.

Punishing Fire isn't a significant threat any more, in my opinion. I only remember it being used in Kird Ape/Wild Nacatl Naya Zoo decks alongside Grove of the Burnwillows, and Wild Nacatl spent some time on the banned list, too. Now it's a non-entity in tournaments.

I think Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer is much more banworthy than Faithless Looting, but that might be the salt talking. Pretty much every tiered deck that Faithless Looting was in saw further bans, so I don't think Looting was the problem.

Omniscience_is_life - As much as I adore Kargan Intimidator, and have been interested in building a pseudo-warriors tribal deck including him, I’m not sure this is the place for him, because my other warriors: Pelt Collector & Gruul Spellbreaker already have trample. I do wonder if maybe he has a place in modern with Wild Nacatl? I’m also hesitant of Adorned Pouncer, only because it doesn’t grow my 1-drops on curve. Maybe an Embercleave deserves a slot though?

I really appreciate your attention brought to Ghor-Clan Rampager and your suggestion of replacing it with CoCo. I’m surprised I didn’t think of it myself, lol. Thank you so much for your feedback!

If you're playing fetches, Landfall Zoo is strictly better than general green stompy. The price difference is in the lands.

Wild Nacatl starts you off as a 1 mana 3/3, then add Steppe Lynx and Akoum Hellhound for some insane beaters. Narnam Renegade gives you a fourth great one drop, and Brushfire Elemental and Plated Geopede put in plenty of work. Add Burning-Tree Emissary and Hidden Herbalists for some better 2 drops. Myr Superion takes advantage of the mana off Emissary and Herbalists.

Top it off with Scale Up and Become Immense for some big boi energy.

It's a bit cheaper than this solution as Arid Mesa and Windswept Heath are a lot cheaper than other fetches. Also, you get Path to Exile and Prismatic Ending for removal, as well as other fun tools like Lightning Helix , Lightning Bolt , Light Up the Stage , Ancient Grudge , Smash to Smithereens , etc.

Of course, it's an entirely different deck, so it's completely up to you -- I might have some other stuff in my back pocket.

Zoo is going control! I played a very interesting build of Zoo that incorporated a slew of one drops to recur with Abiding Grace . I was able to seal a quick game 1 with an incidental Rest in Peace backed by Sterling Grove s but ok some bleeding from Wild Nacatl and Vexing Devil . Eventually I got Solitary Confinement to seal the deal. In game two it looked very similar but I got surprised by Caustic Caterpillar which with Abiding Grace are my board up as they could sacrifice Caterpillar between reanimation triggers. Owie. I had to lean more heavily on those Sterling Grove s and mulled to six with double Grove. They had Ranger-Captain of Eos as a tutor but I had developed my engines behind some prisons and eventually was able to toss a spare Grove to get some angels for the finish.

That was a scary one and Abiding Grace alongside strong self-sacrifice creatures like Caterpillar and Spore Frog could really cause some problems for many decks. Very fun. I got my eye out for this graveyard based Zoo build.

lagotripha on Nethroi Cat Deck

There are a few notable cats from magic history if you want to dig them up - The one drops in particular are pretty good.

1 Loam Lion , Leonin Vanguard , Steppe Lynx , Wild Nacatl

2 Leonin Arbiter Leonin Relic-Warder (classic DnT pieces) Qasali Pridemage Rakshasa Deathdealer

3 Brimaz, King of Oreskos Qasali Ambusher

There are a few more if you want 1/1s or chunky green/white blockers, but there are enough creatures to make the tribe ok - the only reason they aren't great is that they are a little unfocussed - Pride of the Clouds wants flying creatures, steppe wants landfall, nacatyl particular lands, arbiter tax effects, warder flicker, etc etc.

Best of luck - a nethroi brew feels more likely to work out than anything else I can think of.

Naya Zoo was actually a great deck in modern before it got outpaced by things like Death's Shadow , although even now some of the new landfall guys have breathed some life into it. Add in some Wild Nacatl and Plains and then focus on your 1, 2, and 3 drops, and you have the recipe for an aggressive deck that can be surprisingly lethal. Fanatic of Xenagos , Flinthoof Boar , Frenzied Arynx , Zhur-Taa Druid , Fires of Yavimaya , and your bolts fit in with that playstyle pretty well. It's mostly the 5 and 6 drops I'd recommend cutting.
