Cole6000 No worries. Yes, it's an actual deck that I've built. And it's actually somewhat playable in a casual group. Reaper King can actually be pretty oppressive if tuned up a lot, as his second ability can turn into multiple free Vindicates a turn. But I loved the card, and I wanted to build around it. So I used the farming theme was as mostly a deck-building limitation to keep his power in level with other decks in my playgroup as well as for fun.
Basically, the deck focuses on making creatures (through token production or graveyard recursion) that trigger Reaper King's second ability (through actual scarecrows, mimic scarecrows like Adaptive Automaton or Metallic Mimic, or using Conspiracy and Xenograft naming scarecrow to turn all your creatures into scarecrows that will then all be buffed by Reaper King and the mimic scarecrows) to wipe out your opponents' boards. As a bonus, you have a lot of things that can trigger upon the death of a creature -- Deathreap Ritual, Harvester of Souls, Compost, Reaper from the Abyss, Reaper of the Wilds -- or that can benefit from having things in your opponent's graveyard -- Scavenging Ooze, Night Soil, Teneb, the Harvester. There's a few sac outlets (High Market, Trading Post, Scarecrone, Greater Harvester, Mycoloth) to sac your own tokens or creatures when beneficial. And then there's ramp, support, and graveyard recursion cards to fill in the rest.
It's not very tuned at all, as that's kinda the point. There's several cards that could be swapped out for better or more powerful ones (for example, a kicked Rite of Replication on Reaper King results in 25 vindicates). But it's a fun casual deck. Hopefully that explanation makes sense. I'm happy to clarify anything--this deck has been a fun project of mine for a while.

Nice deck! Got a few ideas to share...Sakura-Tribe Elder combos with Emeria Shepherd, you run lots of plains so it should be insane. Helm of the Gods is a great card here too. With so many permanents in play Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx can provide some big ramp. Rest in Peace and Compost are good enchantment based hate against black/graveyard decks. Thaumatog + Rancor is an old school enchantress combo. Plus Rancor rules. Happy Gathering :)

Compost because of how much black gets played

So, I ran this twice. It was very good at stalling the game for a time. I believe I would like to change the commander to Roon of the Hidden Realm and include some fun green enchantments into the mix. Things like: Aura Shards, Burgeoning, City of Solitude, Compost, Dense Foliage. I think these would play well, but would require a serious revamp of mana.

Cool deck fadelightningmm I have a few suggestion. First off have you seen the card Dosan the Falling Leaf? He could help against countermagic and removal and is a tutorable Grand Abolisher for your colors. Tajuru Preserver is also a hard counter to Grave Pact style decks if you run into them. I also would suggest getting a Winding Canyons and a Arena if you can spare the forest slots. Instant speed creatures and a green form of creature removal are great for lands. Whirlwind and Spidersilk Armor are good against decks with a lot of fliers and Creeping Corrosion, Calming Verse, and Bane of Progress are good against enchantment and artifact based decks.
I would replace Sylvan Scrying with Crop Rotation since its the same effect for 1 less. I think this deck needs a pair of Lightning Greaves and a Skullclamp, both are insane in these creature based decks and will make most of your creatures into nightmares for control players. I Like your inclusion of Exploration and another card like it is the enchantment Burgeoning. It can get out of hand in big multiplayer games and is a fantastic scaler. Another good ramp spell is Joraga Treespeaker. She does a descent impression of Sol Ring on turn and on. Sakura-Tribe Elder, Nature's Lore, Wood Elves, Yavimaya Dryad, Somberwald Sage, Food Chain, and Skyshroud Claim are all good options too.
Green combo aggro decks probably have a tough time with Blue and Black control decks, so its always good to know that you have access to cards like Carpet of Flowers, Choke, Tsunami, Compost, Elephant Grass, and Lifeforce. If your meta is polluted with these kinds of heavy control decks based on STAX or Counterspells then cards like these can pretty much neuter them. Consecrated Sphinx + Forbid is degenerate after all.
I see you are running Eternal Witness but have you seen the card Genesis? It is one of greens best recursion engines and can easily be put in the graveyard with cards like Birthing Pod or Greater Good. Another good recursion card you may be able to use is Life from the Loam. A very strong form of land recursion if Armageddon and its ilk show up and is much cheaper than Crucible of Worlds.
Creatures I would add for your verse counters are Nylea, God of the Hunt for Verse 4 since she is a dumb indestructible 6/6 that can be buffed and gives everything trample. I think she is better than Surrak, the Hunt Caller and haste can be provided by something op like Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots.
I also think Nissa's Pilgrimage should be replaced by a creature. This deck is about creatures and honestly a Yavimaya Elder or other creature can be tutored if the need arises and would synergize more. Green lacks draw and you solve that for the most part with Yisan, the Wanderer Bard's ability but any card draw and especially the engines like Skullclamp or Greater Good are amazing to have around.
I hope this helps, the deck is very cool!

Depending on your meta, Compost could also be useful.

I'mma copy and paste your post here jettskawhirl, because I see a weird bug.
Great choices! I'd be happy to help:The enchantment deck is basically enchantment storm with Omniscience. Enduring Ideal is pretty risky but you can cheat Omniscience and/or Divine Intervention in if you ramp to casting it. Instead of Omniscience, you could use Lost Auramancers just like Academy Rector but it's slower at a much cheaper cost. Also, Khalni Heart Expedition is bananas with Burnished Hart and Land Tax. If you like card draw, Enchantress's Presence could be a good substitute for Compost and it's a little under $5. I hope this helps :)
