On Thin Ice Discussion

On Thin Ice doesn't work for this deck, as it requires a snow-land to enchant, and your deck doesn't run any (and they will increase the cost quite a bit). If you don't have a Coat of Arms already, I would drop it for other things. It's a nice card, but will benefit other tribal strategies and is pretty expensive overall - Door of Destinies might be a better option. Sigarda, Heron's Grace is not actually in your list, so you'll need to drop a card and put her in. Make sure to type * CMDR * (no spaces) after the card name to show her as the commander. I would look for some ways to push damage through, like adding some equipment that gives trample Ring of Kalonia or Loxodon Warhammer come to mind. Skyblinder Staff makes any of your flying creatures blockable only by creatures with Reach, which is a pretty powerful effect, with a flying commander. Champion of Lambholt can quickly give you an army of unblockable creatures. Dictate of Heliod is another option for an anthem. I think Elder Cathar may be an underperformer here and better replaced with another creature. Maybe Juniper Order Ranger, Abzan Falconer, Aegis of the Gods, Baird, Steward of Argive, Goldnight Commander, Karametra's Acolyte, Krosan Restorer, Tuskguard Captain, Wild Beastmaster or Yisan, the Wanderer Bard. Good luck, and let me know if there are any specific questions you have.

you have a lot of pay offs but not many cards that make creatures. from the way your decks built i feel like it what at 4 Lingering Souls and maybe 2-3 in any combination of any of these Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis, Elspeth Tirel as these can all spit out a lot of token quickly, without to much hassle and have abilities that care about having lots of creatures, (the also work with Enduring Renewal quite nicely)

i would also be tempted to run a snow basic land base and then add 3-4 of each Dead of Winter and On Thin Ice as a strictly better budget removal suite(also sublime exhilaration isn't modern legal). going snow also means you can run Arcum's Astrolabe as you don't have many 1 drops and they would help fix your mana.

i also think that Angelic Exaltation is just a much better Junkyo Bell

lastly, unfortunately Blood Pet isn't modern legal which kind of kills the combo.
but Hope of Ghirapur would work ok in the slot, especially as it provides some consistent hate for control decks and a sackable 1 drop from the combo (even if it isn't infinite anymore)
if you were determined to keep the combo as is you could splash red for Wild Cantor which is legal, (if you wanted to splash red on a budget then i would definitely run the show packages as it would again increase your mana consistency for fairly little.

Izzy- on The Edgiest Mono-White Deck You’ve Ever Seen

I'd consider cutting Answered Prayers if its in here for the lifegain. The additional effect of Answered Prayers, of becoming an angel, I think is negligible. Maybe consider Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, which continues the lifegain theme, is less mana and is another body to trigger other similar effects. Daxos additionally gives you a decent blocker if needed. While he is a little more easy to remove given two typings, you do have multiple enchantment recur effects to consider it.

You got a couple of Snow-Lands, so maybe consider, On Thin Ice, its removal, and can be recurred here if removed.

While Mana Vault, and Mana Crypt allow for fast mana plus the bonus of self-inflicting damage for Darien, Basalt Monolith seems a little less helpful here. It does provide fast mana, but only once and then it usually sits there until you have the resources to untap it. I'd consider Extraplanar Lens it comes the same turn and provides asymmetrical ramp for you (unless your meta runs a lot of snow plains?). Even if Extraplanar isn't your preference, I still would prefer to fit other ramp in here besides Basalt, which usually shines in decks that can untap it to abuse of it more.

That said it seems like a great deck, I've seen a my fair share of Darien decks, and this seems like one of the more consistent and fun ones to play.

I have a Teshar list myself and I found out about Matter Reshaper these days, and boy, this card is nuts in this deck. Another card I'd like to mention is Shield Sphere . It's better than Ornithopter, because it can block Tymna decks for some time.
On Thin Ice is a good removal to have if you have a snow-covered manabase.
Oh, and I plan to test the new Heliod in the 99. It combos with Ballista pretty easily, it can be tutored with Enlightened Tutor, it's historic, and it's just 3 cmc.

PurePwnage I think it could be modern-worthy. I mean, people do make Enduring Ideal -based decks, that aren't too different from yours.

For a turn 1 play, you could use Oppressive Rays , Sky Tether , Porphyry Nodes or On Thin Ice , depending on your preferences.

On Thin Ice is great removal for this deck whilst also being snow.

I also think Icehide Golem should not be making the cut.

I think this is the better of the two decks i think the other deck is outclassed by boggles
