I swore I did these but apparently not.

LeaPlath I disagree. This is a 4 drop. You ramp on 2 and drop it on 3 and it is highly likely that there are no creatures on the board able to swing on turn 3. If you lost it at all, it is probably lost to a mana dork.
Palace Jailer is ruined by the wording. If it said that it remains exiled until THAT player becomes monarch then it would be a good card. But the fact that any player taking monarch returns the creature to play means the removal is very weak. He has no key words and his body is weak.
Palace Sentinels has no abilities at all and again an under-stat'd body.
Court of Grace is a less vulnerable permanent. White and Green are the only two colors that can efficiently remove enchantments at all. It grants value every turn that it is in play. The fact that the 1/1s fly mean that you will be able to get monarch back regularly.
There are a lot of decks out there that just are not equipped to compete for monarch. Many of the decks that are combat oriented take so much time to setup that you'll have accumulated a lot of value off Court of Grace before they are ready to contest for it.
Are there going to be games where drop it and it gives 1 card draw and then gets destroyed? Sure. There are games where Sylvan Library Land Tax Defense of the Heart even Mana Crypt do nothing. You have to look at the consistent average value that a card gives you for the cost. If you have a deck that can make good use of the tokens and can compete for monarch, Court of Grace is extremely good

Court is not even the best 4 mana white spell that gives you the monarch. Unless you are dropping it on you established board, you are just gonna take damage and lose it. You cantrip. Everyone else goes +1 for playing Magic and you lose the CA.
At the same CMC you have Palace Jailer and Palace Sentinels. Both of which impact the board that turn. Block or remove a threat and block helping you keep the monarch. Interact better with recurssion and flicker which white likes.

Hey, you might need a bit more ramp to push those angles out at a good pace. Mind Stone, Fractured Powerstone, Prismatic Lens, Worn Powerstone, Star Compass, Fellwar Stone, and Verge Rangers are all great options.

Thanks for the kind words again! I am glad you're enjoying the deck! The best thing about Darien is that he can be built so many ways. As far as your comments from my page.
If you can afford a Mana Vault it is totally worth it. The tempo gain is insane, and it's a free ping of damage each turn. I would maybe hold off to see what is in the upcoming commander legends set to see if it might get reprinted and get it cheaper. You never know these days!
Palace Sentinels and Palace Jailer are both cards I have in my Queen Marchesa deck (it's not uploaded to tappedout currently). Since that deck is so monarch driven, I've chosen not to include that designation in my Darien deck. But they are definitely very good and playable in Darien!
Your deck looks fun! It seems a bit heavy in the instant/removal side of things though. I'm assuming you play in a meta with lots of wipes and troublesome artifacts/enchantments? Either way nice work! I've been playing my Darien deck for almost two years now and it never gets old.
