Here's some land recommendations to both speed up the deck and give them more utility. All recommendations are under $20.

Lands to swap:
Sunken Hollow instead of Rupture Spire
Underground River instead of Shimmering Grotto
Morphic Pool instead of Transguild Promenade
Drowned Catacomb instead of Grixis Panorama
Tainted Isle instead of Esper Panorama

Since you don't need to fetch a lot of basics, I'd swap a few basics for dual lands to ensure you always have your colors, ~10 basics is more than enough for a deck
Creeping Tar Pit
Dimir Guildgate
Darkslick Shores
Dreadship Reef
Secluded Glen

Utility Lands worth including:
Arcane Lighthouse
Temple of the False God
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
Field of Ruin
Ghost Quarter
Inventors' Fair
Ash Barrens
Isolated Watchtower
Tolaria West (Transmute this land, to fetch another one you need)
Crypt of Agadeem
Reflecting Pool
Spire of Industry
Shizo, Death's Storehouse
Hall of the Bandit Lord

PaulaTicks - I've been debating on getting Angel's Trumpet. It does sound very interesting. I'll probably grab a copy of it and try it out soon. Thanks for the idea!

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!

Here is some of my favorite cards in my Darien deck:


Jinxed Choker, does not look like a threat at first but when it gets around 8-10 counters people start to worry.
Mask of Memory can draw you a lot of cards + if you have Land Tax, it can turn lands into pure gas.
Secure the Wastes can win you the game out of nowhere.
Luminarch Ascension is a power house and puts your oppenents in a strange spot with Darien out, "to attack or not to attack".
Oketra the True is a very good plan B commander when Darien is either removed or not working.
Hour of Revelation is a must.
Buried Ruin, Isolated Watchtower, Scavenger Grounds and Shefet Dunes are some great utility lands, worth trying.


I've played my paper Darien deck for a year, at my local store an in my playgroups. He is too much fun!


Best regards

Temple of Epiphany and Isolated Watchtower let you scry the top of your library. Any scry cards would really help you control your top card.

Foresee, Portent of Betrayal, Mystic Speculation to buyback every round and Spite of Mogis for only 1 mana.

Endless Atlas is strong draw in mono colored.

Isolated Watchtower is strong with lots of basics and triggers Valakut.

Reiterate is a better Fork/Reverberate. Consolidate the two into one stronger card.

Risk Factor another copy of Browbeat but stronger.

Repercussion burn everyone and everything.

This is a really strong budget list! Here's a list of some cheap mono white staples/suggestions:

Field of Ruin, Ghost Quarter and Aven Mindcensor. Already running Path.

Auriok Champion instead of Soul Warden.

Entrapment Maneuver removal and on theme.

Isolated Watchtower so good in mono color lists.

Dawn Charm no one sees it coming.

Leyline of the Meek pump and on theme.
