This looks like a pretty solid Soldier tribal deck. But I see some room for improvement:
- There are a couple of lands I would suggest running that will be a little better than Plains in your deck. Firstly, Daru Encampment is a staple soldier land. I would also look at Nomad Stadium as a means to deal yourself damage and increase your legion. There are also some generally good white mana-makers which can be of use in any monowhite deck. But they tend to be pricey, so I'll leave them off my list.
- You're making a ton of tokens with this deck, and to that end Anointed Procession can be of assistance.
- Catapult Master and Catapult Squad are two all-stars in Soldier tribal that sometimes get missed.
- Finally, there seem to be some cards in here that aren't pulling their weight as Soldiers. I would remove Perimeter Captain and Valiant Guard, along with Timely Reinforcements. There are just better options in Commander than those cards.
I hope this helps. This looks like a super-fun EDH deck, and +1 for using my favorite tribal card: Cryptic Gateway.

I'm making one of these myself, but with a focus on Darien, King of Kjeldor. Ever thought of using lands like Barbarian Ring, Brushland, Centaur Garden, Llanowar Wastes, Nomad Stadium, Pine Barrens, Salt Flats, Scabland, Sulfurous Springs, or Tomb of Urami? While for my deck, they only help a lot when I have Darien out.. They can get you consistent life loss early on in the game and stay with you throughout.. even if you don't need the mana, you can float it!

It does have it's drawbacks, however, because I also run a Nomad Stadium in that deck too, and Ancient Tomb says "Discard this card if another Stadium card comes into play," so I have to be careful to not get h*ckin bamboozled when I play it

Yes, I want some of those - and Citadel would make a great addition - but don't have the resources to get many new cards for my decks at the moment :)
Tarnished Citadel is on my list along with City of Brass, Grand Coliseum and Nomad Stadium for lands, and Jade Monolith, Staff of Nin, Scepter of Empires and Torture Chamber for atifacts (Acorn Catapult already being in the deck). I also had Rod of Ruin in here until recently, but started to attend EDH tournaments and felt it was suboptimal :)
Oh, and there's the odd Witch Hunter, too.
(Ancient Tomb is totally beyond my budget...)
If you have any other propositions, please share them :)

Add Healer of the Pride and Soul's Attendant for more Soul Warden type effects. For land, consider adding City of Brass, Tarnished Citadel, and Ancient Tomb. You could also play Nomad Stadium and Grand Coliseum. When you have life gain creatures in play while using these you basically get free soldiers, and you don't need to rely on your opponent to attack you to generate soldiers. For self damage you could also try playing Torture Chamber.
If you want to focus a lot on life gain, definitely run Archangel of Thune. To tutor your equipment run Steelshaper's Gift, and maybe consider running Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, and Darksteel Plate to protect your commander. Bastion Protector could also help protect Darien.
The deck is looking pretty good though. I'll have to make some changes to my deck :)

Mikaeus, the Lunarch has an anthem affect strapped to him.
Odric, Master Tactician is pretty hilarious.
Sol Ring for ramp.
Phantom General has an anthem affect strapped to him as well.
Frontline Medic is pretty great because he makes your 1/1s indestructible.
Launch the Fleet gives you more 1/1s.
Endless Horizons guarantees you a land drop every turn and increases your consistency.
I hope this helps!

Daru Warchief is a must have in any soldier tribal deck
This isn't a truly devoted Darien deck because like you said you can switch out commanders and it wouldn't matter too much, but if you wanted a die hard Darien deck you could add these too
Pain lands work to your advantage by giving you soldiers. City of Brass, Tarnished Citadel, Grand Coliseum, Nomad Stadium, Ancient Tomb, and cards like Mana Vault. Add in a Soul Warden effect and the soldiers are free with no change in life total
I'm not a huge fan of Stony Silence here either, seems narrow. I mean I know everyone and their mother at least has a Sol Ring but even you have artifacts that would be shut off by it. I would say either remove those artifacts so that you are not turning off your own cards or take Stony Silence out and throw in some good artifacts like Sol Ring, Mind Stone, Mana Vault, ect...
