Deck looks nice, but still a bit rough around the edges
I recommend following changes:
Cut 1 Embercleave for 1 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar: having a 4-of legendary card is quite difficult, because you can only have 1 Embercleave on the field and the second one might get stuck in your hand. Gideon can be a wincon on his own and his Tokens are Knights.
For the lands: depending if you own the fetchlands and shocklands already or still have to invest in them, you still have cheaper options (or add them instead of the basic lands) : Tournament Grounds (ignore the ), Needleverge Pathway  Flip, Inspiring Vantage, Sunbaked Canyon, Clifftop Retreat.
For the sideboard add following cards:
1-2 Blossoming Calm against Burn
3-4 Rest in Peace against Graveyard-Decks
2-3 Damping Sphere against Tron, Storm and Amulett Titan

Hey, good work in progress so far for a first deck with an interesting concept.

Command Tower and Arcane Signet are two staples to consider adding. Consider adding some flying creatures who can disrupt your opponent to help you do keep the monarch and some repeatable sources of flying creatures?

Blind Obedience can be opponent mana rock ramp disruption and shuts off haste of opponent's creatures who might want to attack you. With Cunning Rhetoric opponent may not want to attack you because then you'll exile card from top of their library.


The mana curve is very high here since you have so many 5 CMC, 6 CMC or higher cards. Cutting some of them for lower CMC cards and more ramp would help gameplay. More two drop mana rocks can make it easier/faster to cast Marchesa. Since she's a 4 CMC creature then a turn two mana rock can potentially let you cast her turn three if you make your land drops.


Some lands to consider adding in place of some basic lands that are within your budget to improve the manabase:

If you're playing Dark Depths then consider Thespian's Stage? Stage is the land that combos with Depths to get Marit Lage. When you control Depths and Stage pay 2 mana to copy Depths with Stage. Stage becomes Depths with no ice counters on it and the legendary rule will take place since you can't control two legendary Depths at the same time. Choose to keep Stage and remove Depths. Since Stage has no ice counters it's saced to create Marit Lage.

If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Back to the legendary sub conversation I ran a deck in Dominaria standard (with guilds and such) that was basically all legendries: Legendary Soup. Once again no win/loss record recorded on Tappedout but I won so much with it at my LGS the deck has become...legendary. I un-privatized the deck so you can play through it but if not I'll give you a run down of what just accomplished in my playtest:

Turn 1 Stomping Ground

Turn 2 Sunpetal Grove , Emmara, Soul of the Accord

Turn 3 Clifftop Retreat , Tajic, Legion's Edge Combat mentor Emmara make a 1/1 hit for 6.

Turn 4 Sunpetal Grove , Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice Combat Aurelia trigger on Tajic mentor Emmara make a 1/1 hit for 10

Turn 5 Rootbound Crag , Trostani Discordant make 2 1/1's Combat Aurelia trigger on herself she mentors Tajic Tajic mentors a 1/1 Emmara makes a 1/1 hit for very much lethal.

Left with a land or 2 in hand, Lyra Dawnbringer , Deafening Clarion . Check it out it was really fun and worked surprisingly well.

This deck does look very fun to play, always having options and hinged on a delicate balance of triggers.

Your mana base could really use an upgrade. I would lose the lands that come into play tapped, especially Boros Garrison, and replace them with what you have or can afford: Command Tower , Clifftop Retreat , Needleverge Pathway  Flip, Rugged Prairie , Spectator Seating , Sacred Foundry and Arid Mesa .

It seems like you would produce enough tokens to generate value for a Purphoros, God of the Forge . It would pair very well with Assemble the Legion, perhaps finally silencing the haters. ;)

Apostle's Blessing might be an worthwhile upgrade of Stave Off, allowing to protect your artifacts if needed.

I know Smothering Tithe is all the rage right now, but I would playtest Endless Horizons in this build. Setting 7 or 8 lands aside skims your deck and improves the quality of your draws, similar to Land Tax.

That is honestly a good suggestion. This deck always wants to have R on first turn and follows up with either RR or WR, so playing basic Mountain first is fine and Clifftop Retreat will work better late game
