Tower of the Magistrate is the one I always stuff in it my deck isn't too colour greedy, that I don't see others pay often.
Voltron player: "Equip Worldslayer."
Me: "Don't worry, Zurgo Helmsmasher! I'll protect you from that big, scary sword!"

Hi there! Coming over from your comment on my Darien deck. Looks like a solid list! I do not like to give a ton of recommendations as it is your deck and should be a reflection of you! I will give a few thoughts (while trying to stay budget friendly with an additions), and if you would like more insight I would be glad to help.
As far as lands are concerned, being mono white you have the flexibility to run some solid non basic lands. I am assuming you are running lots of basics due to Extraplanar Lens . I will touch base on that below. A few lands that make sense flavor wise and just in general would be Arcane Lighthouse (get around shroud/hexproof for removal), Grand Coliseum / Nomad Stadium (budget pain lands), Scavenger Grounds (graveyard hate), and War Room (card draw). Tower of the Magistrate is really fun for repeatedly giving an opponents creature protection from their own equipment.
I see you mentioned Solemnity is there for protection against infect. Depending on your meta that could be the right call. If so I would look to remove both Archangel of Thune and Cathars' Crusade as Solemnity completely shuts those cards off.
One other quick thought would be to consider swapping Extraplanar Lens out for something else. I used to run it a lot and found it to be incredibly lackluster. When it stays and people leave it alone it is great! But that never seems to be the case. If it is removed you are out not just the mana you spent on it but a land as well. Not having snow basics makes it easier for your opponents to benefit from it too. If it is working for you though, great! I never had such luck.
I will leave it at that. If you have any questions or thoughts please let me know. Have fun with Darien!

Tower of the Magistrate: Played against my friend's Urza voltron deck and saw his plans crumble after having his swords fall off and not being able to untap his lands from feast and famine.
He got hit with a hellkite tyrant next turn and couldn't bounce it because he over committed his lands expecting them to untap.
Pestilence: Great repeatable board wipe and life drain. Especially when you have lifegain and an indestructible creature.

Mono-blue artifacts can be fun. Couple cards don't make sense to me but there's probably just some synergy I'm missing.
I would recommend Tower of the Magistrate. You don't need it, it's just awesome and fits the theme. That, and no one expects it.

Tower of the Magistrate is one of those cards that is included for handling other decks. It's primary usage is for disrupting Voltron decks that use equipments, as Kurkesh struggles with those kinds of strategies in particular. It can however serve as a trump card in other situations as well, with artifacts that target creatures for positive or negative effects. Its a very handy tool in the toolbox, even when only used to threaten interaction.

Interesting deck! :-)
Is Tower of the Magistrate of any good in the deck?
