Darien, King of Kjeldor

Legendary Creature — Human Soldier

Whenever you're dealt damage, you may put that many 1/1 white Soldier creature tokens into play.

TheStoneRaptor - I have a few suggestions I can share but keep in mind, I am by no means an expert so take all my advice/suggestions with a grain of salt.

  • You have a very high mana curve with a average CMC of 3.95..this is a very slow deck. Also to your disadvantage, you are not running much in terms of "interaction" beside Aim High + Plummet , which is not exactly efficient. Regardless of what you do here, you will need to likely lower your mana curve to either speed up the deck or add in more interactions.

  • You are running more than 60 cards, I would not recommend this as it is a trap...usually. Most decks are built around a few cards that you want to draw every game for the deck to work at its best, adding in more cards just lowers the probability of drawing the cards you really want.

  • It seems like you have a few themes with this deck. I see Essence Warden so think Soul Sisters...I see some +1/+1 counter synergy...AND I see token creation. I would pick a theme and really hone in on it. The deck will run much smoother.

  • Some suggestions for trimming down the mana curve. Darien, King of Kjeldor, Emmara Tandris, Iridescent Hornbeetle, Mycoloth are all almost at least 5 CMC and create tokens in some manner. I would recommend removing most of these cards and replacing them with something similar. Some great options include Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Esika's Chariot, Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives, Intangible Virtue, etc. The same goes for Planeswalkers...you have Ajani, Valiant Protector who throws around +1/+1 counters and Elspeth, Sun's Champion. I would take these out and maybe replace with maybe Basri Ket or just drop them entirely.

Hopefully something I mentioned you will find helpful. If seeing something similar might help, I do run a +1/+1 counter deck (I'll Raise you +1/+1...) and specifically a cat theme token deck (Feline Feelings. Take a look at those for some inspriation. They are not perfect by any means by they are fun an effective.

Good luck and happy brewing!

I used to have a Darien, King of Kjeldor Soldier deck. Unfortunately, I loaned it to a friend, and then it disappeared. Not a huge financial loss, but it was fun. Sorry, had to get that off my chest.

Anyway, Marrow-Gnawer Rat Discard is my best, favorite, and only tribal commander right now. It's not my strongest deck, but I don't really focus on winning in Commander games. I prefer to mess with everyone else at the table.

Hey, me again! I really like Breena, the Demagogue's premise. I want to build her in the future, since I'm cultivating a combat metagame. But I have some ideas that can make your deck funnier and stronger:

I imagine you're trying to keep the idea of giving gifts to your opponents for them to killing each other, while reaping benefits to you.

One way is to force combat. You might want to put Martial Impetus and Parasitic Impetus back to deflect attacks and get draws off Breena. (Too bad goad is a blue-red thing - come on Wizards, give us on other colors). Otherwise, they buff Breena to hit harder.

Another thing you should consider is protection for your creatures:

How about protection to you?

About recursion:

About card draw:

About your ramp:

Sorry for not commenting on your whole deck. Since I have not played her myself, I could only suggest more general things. I hope the suggestions have inspired you somehow. As always, have fun with the Demagogue!

Whoops! My bad!

Other cards like Reverse The Sands and Soul Conduit include Axis of Mortality and Evra, Halcyon Witness.

Other cards you may want to consider are Darien, King of Kjeldor and Toralf, God of Fury.

Spells that pay life to do damage are tricky since yer not taking any damage. It can work though if your timing is right.

I like the deck, but you're missing a lot of my favorite token deck cards. Here's a list worth perusing. It's a long list, and I wouldn't expect that you could find room for all of them. Just something to give you some ideas to think about.

Also, if you already have any of these on your list and I didn't notice, I apologize.

The only other thing I might mention would be Monologue Tax, which would be useful the way that you have your list set up.

Keeper of the Accord is probably worth checking out. Darien, King of Kjeldor can help make stupid amounts of tokens as well!

Vallaris on Lich's Mastery Bat Tribal!

Thank you again! I actually don't want to do much sacrificing in this deck, and while it has some tokens, I still want it to mostly focus on bats. Tempted to make a second Lich deck though (probably not soon, but eventually!), it's one of my favourite cards and there are so many ways to play around it.

Angel's Grace would definitely a great add to this deck though! Btw I did listen to your first suggestion and included Darien, King of Kjeldor with an order earlier so thank you once more for that. :) He's definitely way too good to not have with Lich.

Regardint other bat lists, there also is Midnight Hunt: Orzhov Bat Tribal.

Your deck looks great. I realize Darien, King of Kjeldor isn't a bat, but he's simply too important with Mastery to not play him.
