Said on Darien, King of ......

Kalo_Wen - Hey! Darien is always fun to play. I've been very busy the past few months, but I hope to have the primer done my the end of the month.

As far as guidance with a budget build, you're in luck since Darien is very flexible and easy to build quite cheaply. The Commander's Quarters has a very good budget build for him that's roughly $68 as I write this (easy to find it on Youtube). I took your comment as a challenge to quickly put together a deck around $100. It's close, and if you buy less than mint cards you could probably get it under. It's a little different than the Commander's Quarters version (it has more of a soldier/creature theme and less pain cards). You can find my budget deck here.

Hopefully these decks are budget enough for you. Everyone is different so you never know what is budget from one person to another. But I'd say anything under $100 for a playable deck is pretty good these days. If you want/need any more help with card choices hit me up. I'd be happy to help!

Aceh - Thanks for the kind words! It's certainly an interesting card. While all five of my one cmc creatures are quite handy and some run more crucial roles, it's rare I have more than two in the graveyard. There's just not enough creatures at that cmc to justify slotting it in. That and I do have a few other ways of getting them out anyway. And that isn't something I need to be redundant. So really neat card, just not for this deck.

With that said though I did pull a foil out of the mystery boosters and it is so nice looking. I really wish I could fit it in just for that reason lol!
