You’re welcome.

I have no problems with Bontu the Glorified as a sac outlet. 1 colourless and 1 black should never be an issue. Even Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is easy to have the right mana for.

Smothering Tithe helped immensely in ramp and colour fixing.

Only issue I have with Land Tax is the land goes to your hand not on to the battlefield. It only ensures you play nice fair magic with dropping 1 land a turn when playing Orzhov.

Oketra's Monument a card I’ve considered myself. However it falls in to the same category as Open the Graves , Ogre Slumlord , Requiem Angel and several other similar cards.

For me personally not enough value from it as a token generator.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose is in my opinion the best token generator in a aristocrats death trigger build.

Field of Souls you could slot as each non token creature you sac creates a token, it’s cheap and it would trigger twice from Teysa Karlov .

I’ll go over my suggested cuts after work.

i'm noticing some problems that you have with too little recursion and too little in the ways of protecting her from targeted removal. cards like Faith's Reward , Second Sunrise , Resurrection and False Defeat are really good to make sure your creatures come back when you get blown up after you summon your god emperor angel. you also are mono white so the problem with that is your card draw is very limited to really get going. take a look at cards like Mind's Eye , Scroll Rack + Land Tax . it's a great way to draw 3 a turn for one mana. Staff of Nin is a good passive draw for you every turn and you should absolutely look at putting The Immortal Sun in your deck. card is nuts and fucks on planeswalkers at the same time which only really affects one card in your deck. other cards that will help with your voltron strategy are various cards like Steelshaper's Gift , Open the Vaults , Stonehewer Giant and Stoneforge Mystic . various equipments that are really good for what you wanna do are things like Champion's Helm , Darksteel Plate , Whispersilk Cloak , any of the sword of cards (just gonna put a link to all the sword of cards of your choice all but body and mind are sweet https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?name=+%5Bsword%5D+%5Bof%5D+%5Band%5D), Batterskull , Sword of Vengeance Hammer of Nazahn . certain creatures that are just good stuff that you should think about are Selfless Squire , Thalia, Heretic Cathar , Karmic Guide , Reveillark , Linvala, Keeper of Silence also look at putting in Nahiri, the Lithomancer for a good planeswalker for equipment

cards i'm seeing that are just meh: Aegis Angel , Resolute Archangel , Banisher Priest , Fiend Hunter , Herald of the Host (doesn't really do anything to make your commander the one shot machine you want), Deathless Angel , Oracle's Vault (becomes to easily blown up right after you put all the work into making it work), Emancipation Angel , Divine Visitation (i get why you have it there for the 1/1 spirits you make, but it's not worth it), Requiem Angel .

other then that you just trim the fat of cards that don't help make brisela your one shot machine you're looking for. hope this helped!

Seems like a big planeswalker suite. I am generally not a fan of too many planeswalkers in commander decks unless they are really support a path to our wincon. Individually, they are all good cards, but I think you could pull at least 3 of them and get more token advantage with Teysa. For example, Ogre Slumlord , Pawn of Ulamog , Requiem Angel would all be solid adds. Personally, I'd get this deck down to 2-3 planeswalkers. Elspeth, Sun's Champion is an auto-include. Liliana, Dreadhorde General would be better than any other Liliana in the deck. For that last planeswalker spot I'd pick a Sorin - either Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord or Sorin, Lord of Innistrad would work very well. All, IMO, of course :).

Thanks for the input! I actually have Hangarback Walker , Phyrexian Altar , Requiem Angel , Hallowed Spiritkeeper , and Dark Prophecy sitting aside. I definitely see a need for more stuff to chop. I will look at Pitiless Plunderer .

I recommend a few cards, Pitiless Plunderer can help you combo or just ramp fast. your deck could also use some more tokens to sacrifice as you lack a lot of creatures that are good if they die. speaking of which Hangarback Walker could really help out with the quite a few needing things to die and this guy makes plenty. Phyrexian Altar also can help get you cast your deck and is a great sac outlet. Requiem Angel allows for a lot for combos with infinite sacs. Hallowed Spiritkeeper more things to die. Dark Prophecy is good but can kill you or mill yourself out so be careful but is great otherwise.

Hey, Caves of Koilos , Concealed Courtyard and Shambling Vent are more budget dual lands. Esper Panorama can search for a basic Plains or Swamp. Reliquary Tower is very good when drawing a lot of cards. Consider adding more cards that can search for Skullclamp? Games where you have Skullclamp are going to be much better than not therefore having more ways to get Skullclamp directly into your hand is pretty beneficial. For budget consider Open the Armory , Diabolic Tutor and Relic Seeker ?

Requiem Angel , Viscera Seer , Reveillark , Archon of Justice are all budget upgrades for cards here. Requiem is a 5/5 flier can be a finisher and in combination with another token producer, a sac outlet and Teysa can make a lot of Spirits. When Reveillark leaves the battlefield as a result of it dying it triggers Teysa getting to reanimate 4 creatures with power 2 or less which is good with afterlife creatures. Justice is a 4/4 flier who when it dies can exile any permanent; exile two permanents if it triggers Teysa.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • 2x Plains
  • 2x Swamp
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • Butcher of Malakir: don't need her since you have Dictate of Erebos .
  • Martyred Rusalka
  • Plagued Rusalka
  • Pious Evangel
  • Xathrid Necromancer
  • Harvester of Souls
  • Final Payment

+! My friend!

I won’t lie I’ve neither piloted nor even seen another Darien deck. I also rarely play white so my opinions might be limited but Imma try and throw some helpful suggestions at ya if I can.

Looking through the deck I would say you’re already well on your way to making this thing a real monster. Plenty of what I was originally thinking is already in. Since you’re running Urborg for those shenanigans you might consider Karma . With Urborg out it’ll hurt youre opponents for each land every turn and it’ll make a bunch of dudes for you. Even without it there is almost always someone playing black so it still serves to put some pressure on.

Marshal's Anthem allows for recursion of a key creature when or if its been hated out. The option of multikicking for multiple recursions is also nice.

When I first looked over the list I wanted to say Divine Visitation just because 4/4 angel’s is nicer than 1/1 soldiers lol but part of me wonders if it isn’t a “win more” card here. Unless you’re also willing to slot in Requiem Angel as a means of going infinite with any of your sac outlets.

I personally think Spear of Heliod might be worth a slot in here. Not only does it serve as an Anthem but it double’s as a threat for your opponents should Darien not be out. Even if he is the ability to, at instant speed, destroy anything that deals damage to you is nice. Niv-Mizzet, Parun comes to mind since we have one floating around in our meta.

I also really like Jade Monolith instead because it allows you to get Darien triggers even when you’re opponents are trying to avoid you. Angel's Trumpet might also do some work here. Particularly if it’s combined with Throne of the God-Pharaoh unless I am misunderstanding when the triggers would occur.

That’s all I got currently. Keep up the good work buddy! Glad to see another fan of Darien in the Deckwatch.
