Artifact Creature — Myr
Darksteel Myr is indestructible. (Lethal damage and effects that say "destroy" don't destroy it. If its toughness is 0 or less, it's still put into its owner's graveyard.)

FYI: "Tron" is not the same as "Voltron."
I usuggest cutting Darksteel Plate in favor of more creatures to enchant with Pariah: Dawn Elemental , Stuffy Doll , and/or Darksteel Myr . Of those three and Cho-Manno, Revolutionary, I'd say the Elemental and Myr would be the best two to run full sets, and then maybe 1x Stuffy Doll for flavor.

Darksteel Myr is to slow.. Oketra does the same for 1 Mana more, but much much better.
Swiftfoot Boots also slows you down. You want to play creatures to share their static abilitys. So stick with creatures, creature removal, hand disruption.

Final Parting might be good since you have a good reanimation suite.
Also, as a contoll-y deck, you should put down Torment of Hailfire and Insurrection in the Maybeboard for sure. Things like Comet Storm can be good finishers too. Vicious Shadows might be a win-con as well.
If you need extra pillow fort goodness there is always Koskun Falls . Wall of Shadows is like a worse Fog Bank but it can be a good blocker (along with Darksteel Myr , perhaps). There is also Queen Marchesa but the's quite expensive indeed. Silent Arbiter might be good too.
You might want to replace a single-target removal spell or two for boardwipes. I think you'll want an above-average number in a deck like this. Also, you're low on artifact and enchantment removal so perhaps Crush Contraband and others are worth considering for future updates. Cleansing Nova is dropping in price.
I'm trying to think of a reliable way to gain life but there aren't a ton of good, reliable life-gainers that don't rely on mass Lifelink or creatures in general (like Celestial Mantle or Loxodon Warhammer ) or aren't Exquisite Blood . Might not be necessary but it could be helpful in grinding out wins. I suppose playtesting will help.
Were it me, I'd switch Temple Bell out for Read the Bones or Ancient Craving / Ambition's Cost . That is, unless, you like the political stuff you can do with Temple Bell. It's definitely more political than Howling Mine .

SleeplessPr1nce - Exactly right. However, I still think Bontu the Glorified is worth the include. He can give Rayami both Menace & Indestructible when you sacrifice him, and provides an albeit expensive sac outlet himself, all for 3 mana. Even if he can't attack or block, I'd say he's definitely a better include than say Darksteel Myr

nice I've been experimenting a lot with the Near-Death Experience Wall of Blood combo. the best deck Ii have made so far is a mardu deck that uses Faithless Looting to dig and takes advantage of Fling to get a t3 kill sometimes with Wall of Blood . Some cards to consider for you are Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Darksteel Myr is good with Worship . Here is an old version of my deck. It has proven to be somewhat competitive actually. it has got 2-1 at local modern tournaments several times. (the newer version) that version isn't updated yet. so cool to find someone else who saw this combo. nobody I know has heard of Wall of Blood . its super underrated in my opinion even not in a combo deck it sort of works like a Royal Assassin or Spear of Heliod .

Don't forget about Flamekin Village for another haste enabler
I'll have to get a Grinning Ignus for my deck!
In my deck I try to protect myself from taking any of the damage, so I run things like Basilisk Collar and Loxodon Warhammer which nets me more life if I have more than one opponent. I also have Pariah's Shield which can be a huge life saver, especially if you put it on Stuffy Doll or Darksteel Myr . Also there is Glacial Chasm . I'm also going to replace all my mountains with snow covered mountains so I can run Extraplanar Lens and usually nobody else will get the benefit from it.

Yes, the Sol Ring will be brought back and the token will remain in play. The ability will fail if either target has become illegal, but you are free to target an unsacrificable creature just as you're free to target Darksteel Myr with Terminate . It's a valid choice, it's just that nothing happens.
