I believe that this set has many impressive cards, but I still wish that WotC had reprinted cards that were already legal in modern and expensive in price, such as Exquisite Blood , Bloodchief Ascension , or Vedalken Orrery .

Don't know if its already been said but if you are running snow swamps then Gangrenous Zombies could be solid here. Same with Ashes to Ashes with the gray merchant lifegain unless everyone is running Baleful Strix

Well met, fair complice of the fields. I as well wield a Reaper King strategy, whereupon I deign to proffer aid unto thee.
Cordialities aside, the King was my third commander deck of sixteen, created quite the meiny of years agone. Hereon, I offer my insight.
I am surprised to an artifact list bereft of Scrap Mastery. It retrieves all from the graveyard and piles up a multitude of triggers.
I see a fair amount of noncreature cards within this list. May I rcommend Whirlwind of Thought? It draws, it draws, it draws, and it draws: everything a player could ever desire.
Favor of the Mighty is one I have quite enjoyed, for there are not many creatures that cost ten to cast. Given that your list seems dependent upon the commander, this does a lot of work.
Many artifacts begets a splendid deck for Jhoira. Each planeswalker and each artifact now cycles.
Let us speak of a seigneur. He ramps and draws, bestowing an endless engine. This card is explosive and interminably so.
Coming away from deck-specific suggestions, there are a fair few cards I put in all of my lists capable of doing so.
Allow me to introduce you to Unfulfilled Desires. Flooding? Great! Mana-screwed? Still great! Just have a spare two mana laying about indolently? Loot twice! This card is absolutely great. I find it being helpful in literally every deck, thus I cannot recommend it more.
Impulse is fantastic. Put it in and do not look back.
Once Upon a Time is still an unbalanced card, even in Commander. I love to see it at all moments.
There are a few cards I would ablate from this list, if you do not mind my saying.
Geth's Verdict is a potent card, but is best in 1v1 settings. A hard kill spell is more reliable. Given the option, they shall just sacrifice a token. If you are desperate for an edict effect, try Soul Shatter. It hits each opponent instead of just one. For your other edicts, I would just replace them with Anguished Unmaking and Despark, maybe a Heartless Act.
Now, I enjoy spicy inclusions, but I find them difficult to justify when there are just better options. Dispatch is one such card. It requires a board-state to be active. It may be a small feat to achieve that, but Path to Exile is not dependent on anything.
Calculated Dismissal and Clash of Wills... Just run Counterspell and Negate. Each is highly efficient. You also have Rakshasa's Disdain and Spell Shrivel. Why not Sinister Sabotage and Dissolve? The ones in the list are needlessly inefficient.
I have many negative opinions about Fane of the Mendacious Deity, so I shall leave them out of the comment.
Training Grounds seems to only help around six or seven creatures in the deck, which doesn't seem very potent enough by itself. Even if it goes infinite in a shenanigan, you do not have many tutors to find it under that circumstance.
That shall be all from be. Fare thee well.
Here is my list if you care to peer upon it: The Season of Mechanical Harvest

I would recommend replacing Ruinous Ultimatum with some easier to cast removal: Curtains Fall, Ashes to Ashes, Heliod's Intervention, By Force, Crush Contraband, Anguished Unmaking. Springleaf Drum is solid ramp. I don't see what's the point of Phyrexian Altar when you aren't running either Oathsworn Vampire or Cloudstone Curio. I would have several more suggestions, but rather then write them all, I'm just going to direct you to my list: Edgar Aggro

Wow, thank you for all the advice, ClockworkSwordfish! I have a lot try out! I think I drooled a little after I saw Ashen Powder... This deck as increasingly grown a janky control sub theme with the likes of Ritual of the Machine, Withering Boon, Ashes to Ashes, Reckless Spite, etc and this would fit in perfectly!
Thank you as well 3n3rgy2! I am a little skeptical with cards that only bring creatures back to my hand but I will definitely have to give it a shot!

See the deck hasn't been updated in a while but regardless i was going to suggest a few cards;
Fyi, you can combo Bitterblossom with Contamination. It is a soft lockout for opponents. they can get out. it is just very difficult. you should be able to win before they could get out. just need a way to not die yourself. but seeing as you already run Bitterblossom im sure you know that.
I don't run Scarecrone myself but I would still recommend. I am simply just trying to find room for it.
Ashes to Ashes is a great card. just try to pedal that one to everyone.
In all I think the deck looks pretty cool.

False Prophet is a super political boardwipe. If people aren't swinging at you, theire helping you win. If they're attacking you, block with this.
Ashes to Ashes is very nice
Quicksilver Fountain ROCKS in mono blue
Daring Apprentice is very nice to just have out.
