Various stuff I forgot the first go around:
- Expedition Map is too powerful not to play, since it can fetch Sea Gate Wreckage or any number of other utility lands.
- Hedron Archive is worth it because this deck lacks card draw.
- Clock of Omens is yet another way to untap Traxos.
- Urza's Factory goes in.
- Avacyn's Collar is another vigilance granter, as is Sigiled Sword of Valeron
- Whispersilk Cloak will easily win the game so it goes in.
- Desolation Twin is the second-best "cheap" expensive card.
- Jhoira's Toolbox is mandatory because it protects Traxos so easily.
- Blinkmoth Urn is busted.
- Orazca Relic is an excellent mana rock in this deck.

So you get infintie mana, then what? you're not really running any clean lines to actually just win the game. Walking Ballista + Conjurer's Bauble / Reconstruction is a good mana outlet that actually finishes the game. You also have loops you can form with Narset's Reversal and Timetwister to let you make infinite bird tokens with Swan Song .
You have quite a few expensive to cost cards which don't really add much to the deck - Blinkmoth Urn , Mycosynth Lattice , Ugin, the Ineffable and even Myr Battlesphere don't add enough value to the deck to warrant a spot IMO. Cards like Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal on the other hand provide the deck with a very fast an efficient infinite mana outlet with Urza.

Hey there, love The Reaper King. I never made the deck myself but i had a friend in my meta who had it for a few years. It was formidable late game but he got bored eventually since there lacked enough interesting scarecrows. But now I think with the amount of shapeshifters/changelings out there the deck can be very fun, and it already looks like you have more than a solid start going on already.
Taurean Mauler , Mirror Entity , Amoeboid Changeling , Changeling Berserker , Changeling Hero , Cairn Wanderer , Crib Swap , and Shapesharer are the best of the changelings you have to pick from. Definitey no need to use them all but a few can definitely replace some of the weaker scarecrows like Wicker Warcrawler .
Crystal Quarry seems like a cute land to run.
I know scarecrows lean artifact but what are your thoughts on Prismatic Omen or Chromatic Lantern ? There is also Blinkmoth Urn for mana generation in artifacts. Krark-Clan Ironworks as an artifact sac outlet that also generates mana.
Oh and another thing about not enough good scarecrows to pick from... Arcane Adaptation is something to think about because you can even then play around with the idea of throwing in 2-3 absolute bombs like Vorinclex or Ulamog that would then become scarecrows.
Again, sweet deck ;) Let me know if any of that helps!

Ancient Tomb is likely to help you a lot. I don't think the Urza's lands are particularly good, simply because they take far too much to get all out at once; Wastes don't need to worry about Blood Moon or other non-basic hate.
Timesifter is possibly one of the most absurd cards in EDH, especially in conjunction with Sensei's Divining Top and Scroll Rack . In my experience, many EDH decks have low curves when compared to a colorless, eldrazi-based deck; if your meta follows the same pattern, then Timesifter will be broken.
Ideally, you're the big-mana deck at the table. I can see you're running a lot of artifact ramp, and depending on which cards are available to you, you should try packing more in ( Thought Vessel , Mind Stone , Voltaic Key , Mana Vault and Prismatic Lens all come to mind). Trinisphere and Sphere of Resistance are relatively expensive cards, but if you have access to them I would definitely run them ( Damping Sphere is a cheaper alternative, though it does hurt your own land base). If you have much more mana than your opponents, making them overpay for their spells is generally a good way to make sure you're the only deck moving at a reasonable pace.
Strionic Resonator is dumb when copying eldrazi cast- or annihilator-triggers. You should run it.
Finally, Sculpting Steel is another copy of whatever the best artifact on the field is at a given moment.
Good luck with deck building!
