Darien, King of Kjeldor Discussion

darmpark on Human/Angel (WIP)

If token generation is what you want, some things you might like are: Martial Coup, Deploy to the Front, Darien, King of Kjeldor, Court Street Denizen, Frontline Medic, Angelic Accord, Path of Bravery, and Moonsilver Spear.

Token generation is primarily a white thing. If that's really what you want, you might have an easier time in mono-white.

darmpark Thank you, great suggestions. Illusionist's Bracers and Rings of Brighthearth are interesting cards. Unfortunately, I don't think I am running any non-mana activated abilities. I thought about Thromok the Insatiable and Ulasht, the Hate Seed when I first brewed this deck. The more I play the more I am understanding how much removal is in my meta so throwing all/most of my eggs in one basket is risky. If I fixed the slowness of my deck and can consistently have a small army on the board, then I will definitely consider them. Chancellor of the Forge and Deploy to the Front are great and I will play around with them a little. This deck seems very fragile when it comes to ratios so I have to see if that is too much token doubling and not enough token generators. Darien, King of Kjeldor is interesting and reminds me of Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, which was in here. I took him out for consistency. Once this deck gets the speed and consistancy I want, I will see what can be cut and replaced with some big beatsticks. Thank you again!!

If it's tokens you want, I'd recommend Darien, King of Kjeldor. He's an old favorite of mine in mono-white. Also, since you're using that version Odric instead of the other one, I thought I'd mention that I've seen other people throw in sources of indestructibility, attack with Odric to spread the indestructibility to other creatures, then play a board wipe. Maybe that's not what you're interested in, but I thought it was a cool tactic so I thought I'd bring it up.

I have a few ideas of things you might want. I haven't seen anyone mention things like Illusionist's Bracers or Rings of Brighthearth, but maybe those aren't quite worth it just for Rith and Rhys. I'm also not seeing an Anointed Procession, which should be a definite add if you're not on a budget. Thromok the Insatiable has the potential to get HUGE in this deck. Ulasht, the Hate Seed can be huge OR make tokens depending on what you need once you play him. Darien, King of Kjeldor makes tokens while also dissuading people from hitting you. Chancellor of the Forge could also be good once you get your board going as can Deploy to the Front.

You've got a good base going, and I hope these suggestions help.

In my (admittedly novice) opinion, this deck seems pretty well rounded. If you want more board wipes, Planar Cleansing, Hour of Revelation, and Akroma's Vengeance are ones you don't have in yet. Speaking of Akroma, Akroma, Angel of Wrath is the QUEEN of keywords. She's also expensive (by my standards) and I don't know what your budget is. If your budget is really high, you could just cut out the middle-man entirely and buy an Avacyn, Angel of Hope

On a different note, I don't know if you're interested in tokens, but Darien, King of Kjeldor is an old favorite of mine in mono-white. 1/1's aren't impressive on their own, but a flock of them with every key word in the book might be, not to mention his added defensive bonus of dissuading people from hitting you. Martial Coup is token generator and a board wipe all wrapped up into one, so that's something to consider. Since your side of the board will have indestructible a decent amount of the time and will survive the board wipe, Phyrexian Rebirth may not be a viable option for you, but I always thought it was a fun card.

There is ONE reusable board wipe in the form of Worldslayer. If you can guarantee indestructibility, (there's an aura literally called Indestructibility, btw) this might be something to throw in.

All in all, good deck dude.

Thanks for the suggestions, passascats! All good suggestions, although I have reasons for not running two of them. I don't run Aetherflux Reservoir because I don't like painting that big of a target on myself, and I don't run Parallel Evolution because I'm not the only one in my playgroup that plays a token deck, and I feel like doubling all tokens on the field isn't necessarily a good idea. I actually made a conscious decision to take Coursers' Accord over Advent of the Wurm, because of the populate trigger. Once I have my token doubling engines online, as long as I have some token with toughness 3 or greater, it's still a better engine. I'll definitely look into Darien, King of Kjeldor and Phyrexian Processor, though!

You're missing Phyrexian Processor. It is completely broken with Trostani. Also if you want another crazy combo, Darien, King of Kjeldor basicly makes you immune to damage while Trostani is out. In most cases Advent of the Wurm is going to be better than Coursers' Accord. It's a little more situational, but since you're already playing Primal Vigor you probably don't mind, but Parallel Evolution can change games. With the life you'll be gaining you may also want to consider Aetherflux Reservoir, insta-kills can come in handy if the board doesn't let you take everyone out at once.I love my Trostani deck, it was the second deck I ever built, and it's still one of my favorites to play with.
Good Luck!
