All creatures have vigilance.
At the end of each player's turn, tap all untapped creatures that player controls that didn't attack this turn. Angel's Trumpet deals damage to the player equal to the number of creatures tapped this way.

Angel's Trumpet Discussion
1 week ago
Give this episode of EDHRECast a listen. It's all about 75% decks with a focus on the creator of the site's Xantcha deck.
As for specifics for your deck, the first card I would include Koskun Falls . It's the only Ghostly Prison effect in black, and it will help you defend. Well, there's also No Mercy , so give that a whirl, as well.
Dauthi Embrace and Dauthi Trapper are interesting tech. I've never seen those cards before! If your goal is just to make Xantcha unblockable, though, Cover of Darkness is much cheaper (gotta love old cards that effect other people's creatures!), and I doubt you'll get much blowback from other Minions on the table.
I also see a Nekusar, the Mindrazer kind of thing going on. You'll probably want some wheels to supplement that strategy. A few good budget ones are Khorvath's Fury , Incendiary Command , and Reforge the Soul .
As for cuts, Cabal Stronghold is pretty iffy in a deck running 11 Basic Swamps. Temple of the False God is awful. You're effectively running 35 lands, because Temple is a free 4-mana rock, not a land. I honestly despise this card. Run Thran Dynamo , Worn Powerstone , or Hedron Archive , instead, and add in a couple more lands. I would put in some budget fixing lands, such as Rakdos Carnarium and Tainted Peak . I don't like Bubbling Muck much. You're not running that many swamps, so something like Mana Geyser would be much more effective if you need big mana. I'm also not really sure what Harmless Offering is doing in this deck.
Those are just my initial impressions. I'd also check out the Xantcha page at EDHREC to see how others are building. You can click the budget tab in the top right to help stay under $150! Good luck!

Jory476, thanks for the suggestions. I was wondering about Angel's Trumpet. It does help to ramp me up with Darien on the field, but with all of the utility creatures I run, I'm not sure when I would find a good time to play it. Having Reconnaissance on the board would help, I guess. And giving the entire table vigilance is a bit troublesome.
I'm on the fence with Divine Visitation. I have a copy, and had it in this list, but have made so many changes without getting to playtest most of them. I very likely may put it back in, especially if resolving the Blasting Station combo just feels icky, which does seem somewhat likely.

I would recommend Angel's Trumpet it's a weird card that makes people want to attack, but helps you build a board with Darien out. The strange everyone has vigilance effect can suck though.

You think Angel's Trumpet might be overkill? I mean, it makes them have no blockers, not even Vigilence creatures. I mean it's great if you are going to a serious commander tounament and you just wanna stomp people, but for fun it might be overkill right? that is the reason I took out Nevinyrral's Disk it's not really fun to play against.

Pervavita - I do play against a guy who likes to use infect in a few decks so I may sideboard Righteous Aura once I get a copy. I've debated on Fumigate. One more mana but it could make for a ton of life with my group. I'll swap it out for a while and see how it does. I do run against a lot of regenerate so that is my only hesitation. Oath of Lieges looks pretty good. I don't really have too many issues with ramp despite being mono white. I actually have one so I might try it at some point. Thank you very much for the suggestions!
thrane - Howdy! That's a lot of good ideas. I really like Shefet Dunes and Isolated Watchtower. I'll be getting those soon. I have all of the others in a side sideboard lol. I want to try Oketra the True one of these days as commander. The other recommendations I'll probably try with her. There are so many neat cards that work with Darien. It's hard to make a solid set in stone list. But a lot of the fun has been pulling cards and trying different stuff out. No cards have really disappointed me yet. Anyway thank you very much for the ideas and input. It's greatly appreciated!

I run Angel's Trumpet in my Darien deck, not only does it incentive people to attack you (creating tokens when you have Darien), it lets you ping yourself for free damage by holding your soldiers back (and you don't really mind about them being tapped since you'll just take more damage anyways).

I really dig it!! I do want to let you know that I had Angel's Trumpet in my deck once. The reason I took it out is because someone played grand arbiter with it out and my dudes ended up killing me lol.
The only thing I would reconsider is Heliod, God of the Sun 4 mana for 1 dude seems steep. I would replace him with Jazal Goldmane, Mirror Entity, Coat of Arms or possibly Staff of Nin for more card draw. Other then that the deck looks sweet. It serves a purpose and looks like a fined oiled machine.
Me personally I wouuld add more removal and/or Blasting Station and take out Planar Bridge, Helm of Obedience, Ring of Three Wishes, and Cryptic Gateway. But if you like those kind of cards then by all means.I just think they eat too much mana and by the late game somebody will use a removal spell on something like that before things get out of hand.
