Darien, King of Kjeldor

Legendary Creature — Human Soldier

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

Adeline, Resplendent Cathar might be a reasonable addition. she isn't a soldier but gives you extra fodder for you to buff and will hit like a truck. Also Mirror Entity and she will be good friends with the tokens she poops out.

Errand-Rider of Gondor, Resistance Squad, Spirited Companion, Loyal Warhound, Solemn Simulacrum, and Knight of the White Orchid are always reasonable additions. you need cards and mana to play them. they also love to be blinked and revived, which is what white does best.

Cosmic Intervention and Teferi's Protection are the s+ white cards. they go in every deck with white

You should run Skullclamp and Heirloom Blade. and Recruiter of the Guard. It is too good not to.

You have plenty of blink synergy already. Eerie Interlude, Ghostway, Semester's End are things you should strongly consider, the delayed return allows you to dodge wipes, although youll lose your tokens. Teleportation Circle might be reasonable to add. Planar Guide can also be used offensively too. And The Eternal Wanderer is outrageously strong. It does everything.

Cut Arm the Cathars its awful at 3 sorcery speed. Things like Akroma's Will exist and are 100x better. I'd honestly have you revise most of your instants and sorceries. You dont have enough draw to use spot removal like this without putting yourself at a disadvantage.

If you run baird, you should also consider Norn's Annex, Ghostly Prison, and Windborn Muse. as those effects stack, they get much much stronger.

Darien, King of Kjeldor is pretty silly, although he's expensive. with the soul sisters you run, you become very very hard to kill. Conclave Phalanx isn't great in my opinion without some blinking, but if you use something like Nykthos Paragon, its very silly Knight-Captain of Eos also can do a lot to make you invincible.

Flowering of the White Tree is an amazing anthem. probably the best in the game. Spear of Heliod is probably second if you keep mana up, just because it will likely turn offense to other players because of its awful ability.

Moonshaker Cavalry is probably an instant win if you play it

LANDS: This deck might actually be able to run Scorched Ruins.

You might as well add Daru Encampment, Forbidding Watchtower, and Memorial to Glory. Kjeldoran Outpost has synergy but has a major drawback.

I'll look at more low cost stuff later. most of my recommendations are like 5cmc+

Nice. With token-generation being your thing here, perhaps Darien, King of Kjeldor is useful. Makes especially spell-slinging decks, or decks that try to deal lots of non-combat damage to you, think twice about messing with you (and if they still do, more tokens for you :)).

Stain, Inkling Sophisticate

Legendary Creature - Inkling


, Pay X life: Prevent the next X damage that would be dealt to you this turn. For each 1 damage prevented this way, create a 2/1 white and black Inklung creature token with flying.


Some stories simply write themselves.

Just imagine the pain this little bastard would bring to a table. Basically having Darien, King of Kjeldor with an integrated Inkshield feels terrible. I'd love to build this, but this makes you pretty much invincible and even gives you a wincon if anyone dares to attack you.

I want to see a legendary turtle.

Gidgetimer on does paying life trigger Darien, …

Damage and loss of life are not the same thing despite damage to a player usually causing life loss. Paying life and losing life to something like Bump in the Night do not make tokens from Darien, King of Kjeldor despite your life going down. Damage from a source with infect or damage dealt while Platinum Emperion is out does make tokens from Darien, King of Kjeldor despite your life total not changing.

something to do with having something that do damage to you like Ancient Tomb you could add Darien, King of Kjeldor to get more soliders. also i didnt see any but there could have been some in there, with playing white you have a big oppertunity for life gain like Soul Warden, Suture Priest for life and damage against opponent, another one because your spitting out a good amount of creatures with your commander you could use Healer of the Pride to gain 2 life per creature you control entering battlefield

Hi, this looks wonderful! Darien, King of Kjeldor would be nice as well, if opponents decide to still attack you, get ready to generate some tokens! For some additional flavor that's in touch with your theme: Comeuppance and Reverse Damage!

I just realized, that Darien, King of Kjeldor and Blasting Station and Soul Warden is yet another infinite combo. This deck has so many broken little combos haha.

I didn't look super close at the list but here's a few that I saw that you might get a kick out of:

Entrapment Maneuver, Unbreakable Formation, Call the Coppercoats, Veteran Armorsmith, Darien, King of Kjeldor, Veteran Swordsmith, Prava of the Steel Legion, Mobilization, Ballyrush Banneret, Daru Warchief, Defiler of Faith, Horn of Valhalla, Valiant Veteran

Sorry if this has some things that are already there, I'm a little rushed atm
