Hear ye’ hear ye’, gather round dear peasants and hear the word of our one true king — Darien, King of Kjeldor !

Do you like running janky high cmc mono white commanders for the hipster swag points? How about including crap cards like Dingus Staff and Witch Hunter unironically in your deck? Maybe you enjoy slapping down cardboard that elicits the response, “Why the fuck is that in your deck?” All of these wonders and more could be yours! Join the Church of Darien today!

I went away, went on a Solstice vigil, and in the middle of the night had a revelation on how I would play it. I still stand by Isochron Scepter, but it doesn't address the problem you named of actually winning.

When I first saw the deck I was dubious about the enters tapped effects - it feels like they're taking the deck in a different direction than it wants to go, and splitting the deck's resources. My moment of revelation was realizing that the opponent's hand is almost always going to be full. If the deck runs right, a Temple Bell only benefits you because you're the only one playing things. So the first thing I'd add is a couple Howling Mine, Anvil of Bogardan, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea

But your hand is emptying out much faster than theirs. Khorvath's Fury draws you a card and deals seven damage to them Black Vise is almost guaranteed to do three every turn. and Ebony Owl Netsuke is doing a solid four each turn. Molten Psyche does seven or more!

This also means that bouncing things, given how hard it is for your opponents to play them, is as good removal as burn. AEther Membrane, Stingscourger or Witch Hunter might all be worth a try. Add a Trinisphere, Aura of Silence, or Sphere of Resistance to give them an extra hard time

Lastly, I think the best defense in this deck, might be effects like Ghostly Prison or Sphere of Safety

Witch Hunter is a good budget alternative to Preacher...I paid $30 for mine just because I needed it to finish the deck.

Spirit Link is another great card that deserves a recommendation.

They're "fine" with quitting albeit no happy about the situation. Once I go infinite, I can kill them with Witch Hunter or drop Kormus Bell and attack with all my lands. Plus, I can drop a lot of 2/2 Zombies with Zombie Infestation and Library of Leng

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...)

I also consider some cards that force my opponents to attack, such as Arcum's Whistle, Bullwhip or Oracle en-Vec.

If you have any other propositions, please share them :)

If you want to go all in on the self flagelation you have the lands but are missing the artifacts. You may want to consider Angel's Trumpet, Ankh of Mishra, Ashnod's Altar, Blasting Station, Jinxed Idol, Mindstorm Crown and the creature Witch Hunter.
