Blood of the Martyr


Until end of turn, if damage would be dealt to any creature, you may have that damage dealt to you instead.

Wow your list is basically what my list should be if I had the money for the more expensive stuff.

Just a few tips:

I think Jade Monolith is not very good. I cut it because it really does nothing. None will risk a combat phase if they see it on the field. I tried Blood of the Martyr and Sivvi's Valor that have the same effect but you can use them to surprise the opponents. In the end I cut them too, which brings me to the next point,

in my opinion going all-in on Darien ability is not a good choice, because he is very expensive and if they kill it once or twice then your whole deck stops working. I think you should have a few more ways to generate an amount of tokens that can kill. Of course you already have Elspeth, Decree of Justice and Martial Coup, I'd suggest also:

Conqueror's Pledge

Increasing Devotion

Secure the Wastes

Monastery Mentor

Oketra's Monument

The last four do not create soldiers though,

Anointed Procession, this a bit win more

Also, Mana Vault is dope as ramp and is a self-pain source when tapped

Expedition Map to find one of your sweet pain-lands or Nykhtos.

Finally, I think the mana doublers paint a target on your more than helping you. Either someone kills you or they get immediately blown up. I run only Extraplanar Lens because its cmc is low enough to do something else on the same turn I play it.

Ah, for the self-pain there is also Cold Snap, since you run snow lands. It's a bad card but I run it for flavor.

Once you have Darien out, have you considered Blood of the Martyr to redirect the damage on someone else's creatures to yourself?

you are missing one key component of this deck. Land and spells that damage you. Ancient Tomb, Tarnished Citadel, City of Brass, Blood of the Martyr is hilarious, along with Angel's Trumpet. They are a must have, and make Darien incredibly powerful because of your land triggers.

Blasting Station also is an infinite combo with Darien if you target yourself with that one damage. Infinite life with Healer of the Pride, and as you can imagine, infinite counters with Cathars' Crusade.

here is my deck if you want to look at it for ideas
