I might consider getting rid of Volrath's Laboratory , but if you are keeping it you could consider switching for for Birthing Boughs , technically the same thing for less mana.

Maybe Turnabout or maybe Deluge - removing cards is always the tougher than finding new cards to add

Coward_Token on EDH: Universal Tribal Supplements

(Edit: Updates now on (List) Coward_Token's custom cards)

I feel that some tribes are only partially supported. Rather than trying to fix each individual tribe, I've tried to think of some cards that would be good enough for the lesser tribes but not so good that the established ones like Goblins & Merfolk would also benefit. This way, the situation would be remedied for all underdog tribes, both present and future. Hopefully this isn't too misguided; let me know what you think.

Width token makers

The following are meant for tribal cards which would appreciate going wide but have difficulty doing so reliably, e.g. Thundercloud Shaman or Admiral Beckett Brass (why does Grixis only have one Pirate token maker available?). One concern I have with these is that they could be problematic with some cards, e.g. Reaper King , Soulcatchers' Aerie and Gilt-Leaf Archdruid .

Genesis Blade Show

Artificial Sire Show

Height cards

These are meant to help tribes who suffer from having few cards to choose from within singleton limitations, giving them some extra fatties.

Bears don’t throw punches! Ditch Savage Punch, maybe for Volrath's Laboratory.

Volrath's Laboratory could maybe be useful.

Good luck, And a tip of the cap to yah. I love this guy, but hes challenge. Idk how much effort you are trying to put into this Commander, but you might want to think about adding / working with a little more of a combo angle. Basing it mainly on scarecrows / changlings is really hard to make competitive. I really wanted this guy to be a good Commander, I just couldnt get it to where I wanted it.

Having said that; some cards that ended up really helping me were Soul Foundry and Volrath's Laboratory. They both give you a scarecrow every turn, if needed. Eldrazi Displacer also helped me with blinking creatures. Clones work well, you can copy your scarecrows, or a more powerful creature that an opponent controls, options are always nice. My favorite mechanic was playing a changeling with Champion, then bouncing it for 3 triggers off Reaper King, good stuff.

If I can offer you anymore ideas, my final build is: Reaper King Hates Your Stuff.

Maybe it's along the lines of Obelisk of Urd/Door of Destinies. It could also be along the lines of Volrath's Laboratory.
