You have a couple unique opportunities here.

Coalition Victory!

Color conditions can be met by Reaper King alone, or Scuttlemutt in a pinch.

For the Land condition, use Nylea's Presence on your Darksteel Citadel. It's cheap and its a cantrip as well. That also enables Landwalk abilities if you play it on your opponent, but that's a thought for a different day. If you were to have at least 1 of each basic land in your deck outside of what you need, than you could also play Wild-Field Scarecrow or something simple like Cultivate.

If you really wanted to be a dickhole, use Arcane Adaptation and play token generating spells like Raise the Alarm or Dragon Fodder which basically means pay , make two 2/2 "Scarecrow" tokens (remember the lord effect from the King) and blow up 2 permanents.

Minor alteration you might enjoy - Horde of Notions for a general - you can't tutor out cards from play, but it lets you run any changling for , and cast them from graveyard as well.

another odd option is Reaper King for destruction of permanents

odd "lords" that might fit well -

Admiral Beckett Brass and or Captivating Vampire - Steal their stuff!

Bramblewood Paragon & the their tribal parallels - give a static bonus even after the card leaves

Death Baron - pairs well with first / double strike. kill stuff dead. good alternitive to Zombie Master

Drogskol Captain - another lord of the unreal, effectively. plus it steroids

Scion of Oona - see above, but shroud. can't target it, but has flash

Field Marshal and / or Stromkirk Captain - pairs well with deathtouch

Seshiro the Anointed - big buffs + card draw = win

Midnight Entourage - Gives a mini Phyrexian Arena effect when one dies

Myr Galvanizer - untapping is amazing. do stuff more!

Pheres-Band Warchief - because tribal centaurs are apparently a thing

Timber Protector & Crested Sunmare - because indistructable is amazing

Unnatural Selection - because more messing with stuff is more better

AEther Shockwave & Whelming Wave - lockout effects

Crux of Fate - because it is now viable in a non-dragon tribal

Goblin Chieftain - an alternitive to goblin king - not a fan of landwalk, personally. to circumstantial

I've also been working on a Reaper King deck recently, i'm also trying to run as tribal as possible.

i'd suggest running more artifact scarecrows and trying to jam in some artifact recursion cards like Inventors' Fair (I do see you have a couple of cards that already do that)

Also Door of Destinies - since the deck revolves around playing as much of a specific tribe as possible door of destinies stacks really quickly making your scarecrows a force to reckon.

i'd like it if you checked my list and told me what you think of it and if anything in it helped you! Scarecrows

spaceman42 - Crucible of Worlds is in here solely due to my playgroup. I would say at any time there is one to two decks that play land destruction. Kaalia of the Vast, Reaper King, Numot, the Devastator are often out. Even our other mono white player runs it...

It's quite annoying so it's mostly in the deck for that. Strip mine just for extra value. I would love to take it out though if the group didn't love to blow up lands.

Angel_Zero, Scuttlemutt, Springleaf Drum and Unclaimed Territory should be enough to get the WUR for Reaper King.

Metallic Mimic and Adaptive Automaton could work! I think the others would raise my curve too high though, and that’d be a lot of Lord effects already.

Thanks for the comment!

Update: The infinite combo is now Reaper King + Panharmonicon OR Aura Shards + Metallic Mimic + Wingrattle Scarecrow OR Rattleblaze Scarecrow. Basically, I destroy everyone's things by repeatedly cycling an infinitely persisting scarecrow in and out of the graveyard using the extra destroy trigger.

+1! I really like the real King of MTG helming a deck. Do you think Conjurer's Closet could be worth it, to flicker Reaper King turn after turn?

I took a look at the decks you've posted to see what you've found disappointing. For the reference of others:

It seems like you should try playing a control deck. There are two basic types of control in Magic--proactive and reactive.

Proactive control are your Stax and Taxes decks. These are powerful, but you need to be careful not to build them stronger than your meta allows. By definition, these seek to lock players out of the game, and your friends might find that unfun. Some good options include:

Reactive control are your counterspells and removal spells. They allow an opponent to act first, which you respond to. The effectiveness of these decks decreases in multiplayer, as there are too many threats to remove, and not enough open mana. Some options include:

  • Talrand, Sky Summoner, who gives you creatures with your counterspells, at the cost of being mono-blue, and thus giving no hard removal.

  • Kess, Dissident Mage is in fantastic control colours and allows you to flashback kill spells.

  • Reaper King gives access to all colours and can be turned into a removal machine with some scarecrows/changelings and blink effects.

Hopefully some of this helps!
