CChaos on The Reaper Make it Go BOOM!!

You can check out my Fear the King deck for more options on land balancing, though you would have to determine the amount of each basic land type to be included for your own cards.

I think the most competitive builds for Reaper King decks are those which focus on blink effects.

Higher land count. A colorless titan might make for a better commander, just so you have something to ramp towards. The current commanders don't really synergize with the list. If you want to keep colors, might as well go all five with Reaper King or Child of Alara. Fixing is a big issue. Pain lands are an auto-include Yavimaya Coast and the like. Lean towards green to get Farseek, Nature's Lore, Rampant Growth effects. Fetches and shocks work wonders. Especially when Alara's panoramas tap for colorless. It's also rather stagnant on card selection. With access to Sylvan Library, Rhystic Study, Sensei's Divining Top and every other card drawing engine, you shouldn't have that issue

Not brilliant, but it gets the job done.

I would like to see a Scarecrow Lord that would be a better Commander than Reaper King.

You also have Cackling Counterpart, Spitting Image, and Rite of Replication (making the total 9-13) all of which are probably in to copy Scarecrows and trigger Reaper King's ability so they'd be Scarecrows and also benefit. Not to mention Metallic Mimic is now a destruction spell that can buffs your Commander and its copies when they ETB.

As far as what to take out: you have so many planeswalkers in the deck that don't synergize with your Commander very well. You're taking up a lot of space for tutors, protection spells, more token generation, and other mana fixing.
Celestial Dawn, for example, is the poor man's Chromatic Lantern and mana fixes well in a 5 color, Assemble the Legion just spits out tokens, Arcane Denial, Long-Term Plans is a wonderful cheap tutor.

Speaking of mana: Spire of Industry since you have 12 Artifacts.

I've been playing commander for only the last year or so, and have yet to make a 5 color deck... however, way back in Tempest I had an amazing 5-color sliver deck that cleaned up everywhere I went. The problem I always had was mana generation - need them 5 colors! City of Brass and Undiscovered Paradise were key back then. I'd add them now. I'd also grab a Grand Coliseum.

I'd also recommend some artifacts - Darksteel Ingot & Gilded Lotus for mana, Mind's Eye for draw, and because it's the M-F'n Reaper King, add Panharmonicon!

Inspiring Statuary is REALLY interesting, thanks for the suggestions.

Saheeli's Artistry could be interesting, but its cost is really high, there is close to no cards in the deck that lower is casting cost and most of the time I don't copy an artefact, so it triggers most on time only one ability. I will pass.

For Avenger of Zendikar and Myr Battlesphere thought, they aren't super interesting, knowing that they are really combo-ish (needing a certain order and all). The deck would need a lot more set-up too make it work. Anyway, the deck is already pretty over-killing, there are turn 7-8 where I destroy more than 15 permanents (a chance Reaper King says "may destroy" because we would be obligated to destroy it).

Inspiring Statuary could be quite the mana rock in here. Saheeli's Artistry will always copy 2 things probably too. Also for some reason the other day I was thinking about having Conspiracy in play along with Reaper King and casting a creature that makes lots of tokens to clear the board. Like Avenger of Zendikar or Myr Battlesphere.

I feel like Reaper King stax might actually be pretty good due to him being a vindicate in the command zone per scarecrow entering. Get lots of blink, clones, and other general stax and it would probably work. I have brewing to do now.
