ERoss8 on Looking For cards that trigger ...

Dang, Dragon Broodmother triggers EACH upkeep?! I thought it was good when I was playing with it wrong...

Deathreap Ritual if you can trigger it with Viscera Seer, Ashnod's Altar, etc

Deathreap Ritual is decent.

Have you thought about Deadbridge Chant?
In my Glissa's Necromonicon deck, I have took out Deathreap Ritual and kept Deadbridge Chant.
As Deathreap Ritual felt slow and limited, as it won't give you more then 1 card, and sometimes it was destroyed before it did anything.
And my deck benefit from the grave fuel Deadbridge Chant creates, so even if it gets removed, I will have something to reanimate.
Also Grave Pact or Phyrexian Arena can be a replacement for Deathreap Ritual.

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.

I'm guessing no Doubling Season due to price?

Nice to see Vampiric Rites. Great card that doesn't get played enough.

I'd swap Jungle Hollow for Llanowar Wastes.

Given the -1/-1 counters being thrown around Deathreap Ritual could easily draw more than Phyrexian Arena. I'm not suggesting replacing Arena, mind you :) #whynotboth?

Since your CMC is pretty lean and you already have Urborg and tutors I'd maybe track down a Cabal Coffers.

I think I'd add Acidic Slime and Reclamation Sage for some extra enchantment/artifact slaggin'. I'm always very fond of Deathreap Ritual in my Meren deck; such a nice cheap way to draw extra cards. Also, you could maybe take a look at some self-mill cards like Hermit Druid and Life from the Loam; the bigger your GY, the more options Meren will have.
