Some good cards for your Scarecrows/because of your Scarecrows are Kindred Boon, Padeem, Consul of Innovation, Bringer of the White Dawn, Sun Titan, Master Transmuter, All Is Dust, Darksteel Forge, Conjurer's Closet, Scourglass, Mechanized Production, Call to the Kindred, Descendants' Path, and Saheeli Rai.

Ah, understood. Gotta keep things in budget, of course.
And if I may interject on another point, Clone-type creatures will in fact trigger Reaper King's ability when they come into play! The reason being that their wording states they come into play "as a copy" of a creature, not that they copy one upon coming into play. It's a replacement ability that takes all characteristics of the copied card, making it trigger both itself (if, say, you copied a Grim Poppet, it would get the -1/-1 counters) or any other card for which the clone satisfies the condition (i.e. Reaper King.) So Adaptive Automaton, Metallic Mimic, Phyrexian Metamorph and Progenitor Mimic will all trigger Reaper King.

to be honest, the idea was to use him with Cauldron of Souls to make infinite persists triggers, I guess I'll use Ashling the Pilgrim instead, I already have Grim Poppet, But I want a second way to do the combo...

I have a Reaper King scarecrow tribal edh deck that I am turning into a -1/-1 counters scarecrows edh deck. I am going to be running The Scorpion God, Flourishing Defenses, Nest of Scarabs, Parallel Lives, Grim Poppet, Conspiracy and Xenograft, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Fevered Convulsions , Blowfly Infestation Everlasting Torment and other things like Wither and Persist mechanics to reap the benefits of getting -1/-1 counters. However, I need a strong finisher for this deck. Some cards I am considering are Deity of Scars , Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, or maybe just sticking with The Scorpion God.
Are there any other creatures out there that might work well with this deck? Any suggestions are appreciated

Example: You start by saccing your target ETB creature (let's call them TEC)
- Creature dies, hits the graveyard and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed brings back creature via undying. TEC now has a +1/1 counter.
- Remove a counter from Grim Poppet, Place on TEC. A state-based action triggers once the counter resolves and negates the +1/1 and -1/1 leaving no counters on our TEC.
- Sac TEC. It comes back via Undying and +1/1 counter.
- Repeat steps 2-3 until Grim Poppet has no more -1/1 counters on it.
- Sac Grim Poppet. It comes back via Undying with (3) -1/1 counters and a +1/1 counter. State-based action sets this to (2) -1/1 counters.
- Repeat 1-5 until you have accomplished your goal.
Is this a correct understanding of the rules? Am I missing something here, because this seems perfectly valid, just a lot of work to get going.

dlamars I do have a Decimator I can use, I'm kinda split since his mana cost is quite hefty (even with the emerge cost). I was considering Ivy Lane Denizen as a means of keeping my commander alive, perhaps Defiant Greatmaw? Chainbreaker is a card I'll consider, and Grim Poppet would be amazing if he was a lower CMC, oh well haha. Any suggestions for what to cut for Defiant Greatmaw, perhaps?
Thanks for the suggestions!

Hi, I'd suggest the following: Decimator of the Provinces is an excellent budget game ender for when you have all those snakes.
Maybe something like Blade of the Bloodchief to keep your commander alive?
Glistening Oil might not be a perfect fit here, but for the cost it is pretty awesome and hard to get rid of.
That's all I have atm, hope it helps!
