If we consider the options available you can likely rule out tribal commanders like Slivers, Dragons, Atogs, Scarecrows, and Elementals. I'd include Allies but they have some good ETB effects so it could be an option. Golos and Niv Mizzit have thier own ETB effects, Korona could be blinked to avoid switching control. Kenrith has utility, politics, and reanimation to reuse ETBs. Morphron and Jodah could be combined to make creatures free. Capt. Sisay can Tutor legends, or if you just want colors Progenitus or Ramos could be there as an alternate wincon via CMDR DMG. And lastly you could use Child of Alara as a "Nuke Button".

That's my take. Would need more on what your goals are besides Blink because there's lots you can do with these options.

Deck looks very sweet. I find some inclusions questionable, but looks pretty solid overall. Reminds me of Reaper King a lot (would also recommend)

All good suggestions. Blade of Selves + Reaper King in a four player game gives you 3 Reaper king tokens, which each see each other enter, giving you 9 vindicates (three from the original king, two for each token). The same general idea works for Helm of the Host , except the tokens stick around.

Trash for Treasure out for Goblin Welder and Cloudshift out for Vedalken Archmage sound good for a starting place.

Budget isn't the biggest problem, while I'm not looking to drop a lot of money on any single card, I have a huge collection that includes many old cards.

I love the theme of this deck, I am actually working on my own Reaper King deck with a very similar build, utilizing shapeshifters and other scarecrows.

It may not be as synergistic as the rest of the deck, but with the amount of different lands you have Field of the Dead might be a good inclusion. And if you also include Arcane Adaptation that makes those zombies the tribe of your choosing, which is more triggers from your Commander.

Yes! Reaper King! That card has always been close to my heart, so it's always great to see a deck for him.

I've brewed with it extensively, so I have some suggestions for you:

Due to all of the changelings, you can really abuse those creature types. Naban, Dean of Iteration will duplicate triggers with "scarecrows" and Rattlechains can grant them all flash.

Gilt-Leaf Archdruid , if it's within budget, allows for quite a bit of card draw and a win-condition attached to it.

Gisa and Geralf will be able to recur the changelings for later use.

Knight Exemplar is fantastic defense for your board, Azami, Lady of Scrolls can draw many cards, Sygg, River Guide can protect creatures, and Ingenious Infiltrator can be awesome if you start to swarm. With so many creatures, Call to the Kindred could be cute.

Harsh Mercy or Kindred Dominance can be largely one-sided wraths, so that's something to note.

Reaper King is a massive target whenever he hits the field, so it's important to have a few backup plans.

Good luck with Scarecrows and Vindicate EVERYTHING!

Here is my own list:

Hello again great mentor - I made an update to my Sliver Queen deck, and somehow lost all of the "show" and "hide" buttons in the accordion menu. I have no idea how I made that mistake...and am just facerolling on the keyboard. I'd appreciate any sort of assistance you could provide...but i'm wondering what did I delete? Warning: this is alot of code.

Yes. Ramp is better than a graveyard combo that requires three pieces. People will almost always have some graveyard hate in the sideboard, especially with dredge builds out there.

Reaper King is a fun lord, but IMO there just aren't enough good scarecrows out there to make him worth it, especially in modern (where you have to get your deck running by about turn 3). Now, another route you could go with this is to use mimics like Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic and see if that works, but I'm still not really seeing this working out. Sorry. Modern is a very competitive format, so it's hard to find something new that turns out to be effective.
