Irregular Cohort Discussion

@Blue_Flame Thanks for the comments. I did consider (and will switch to) Irregular Cohort . The reasoning behind Sunspire Gatekeepers is the 4-toughness which make them better blockers and resistant to bolt. The cohorts are the better choice.
I will have to come up with a sideboard soon. Deck updated!

I think Irregular Cohort is better than Sunspire Gatekeepers in a deck like this, as you don't need to run Orzhov Guildgate any more to produce the 2/2 it creates. You could probably just run a mix of Scoured Barrens and Orzhov Basilica to replace them.
Also, you kind of need a sideboard, so I'll provide some suggestions for that:

These cats may look a bit funny, but I assure you they are cats and might help out a bit :3 Impostor of the Sixth Pride , Universal Automaton , Irregular Cohort , Mirror Entity , Woodland Changeling , Valiant Changeling , Birthing Boughs , and Mirror of the Forebears .

The first thing you should figure out is the direction of the deck, and adjust things accordingly. It's a lot easier than it sounds, and it really is that simple. Since this is Tribal EDH and Reaper King is the general, most of what we want is stuff to facilitate both his casting, abuse of his removal effect, and the consistency with which those are done. Granted, I'm not an expert with multicolor EDH, but there are some basic principles that apply, so this is where I am drawing from.
Fielding the 'Crows
Popping with King is great, but with limited deck space, vanillas just don't make the cut. To that end, you need to look for what you get in addition to a card triggering King's removal.
Irregular Cohort - Pay 4 to get a pair of 2/2 Changelings, which means a field day for Reaper
Unsettled Mariner - Changeling plus a hint of protection
Birthing Boughs - Simple Changeling production, which of course means Scarecrows at a decent price
Riptide Replicator - Largely, it's a watered-down Boughs, but a slow format like EDH can give you better opportunities with Replicator
Volrath's Laboratory - Largely, it's a watered-down Replicator, but for a budget deck it can get the job done
Call to the Kindred - Assuming your creature doesn't get vaporized, you can generate free board presence and possibly get pops with Reaper
Descendants' Path - Easier to keep around than Call while harder to actually use, but is an option
Kindred Summons - High costed, but can snowball hard
Acceleration and Mana Fixing
Since this isn't fully funded five-color EDH, you need to compensate for your lands' blandness with artifacts, and possibly a touch of ramp if it fits into the deck. These things are widely used because it's more than just fixing your mana, it's having more mana at your disposal for when your general dies and you need to recast at an inflated price.
Darksteel Ingot , Manalith , Spectral Searchlight - Never underestimate an omni mana rock in EDH, because this both speeds you up and eases your mana needs. There is a point at which too much mana fixing of this nature is bad, but for a budget deck, don't worry too much about that until a little further down the line when you start shifting away from being strictly budget
Coalition Relic - Additional option of planning for next turn
Firemind Vessel - More generation at the cost of being pretty slow
Coldsteel Heart - Not as good as omni mana rocks, but is an option
I'm short on time right now, so I'll pick up where I left off tomorrow.

I think they errata'd the roc egg to be an bird egg creature type so it still works. (https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?name=roc+egg) This card is in the naya c19 precon and the creature type is changed. Irregular Cohort is a good card, i think, because it gives you two changelings. Crib Swap seems like a good removal spell and it gives you changeling as well. IMO, I would take out the dinosaur creature ramp like Knight of the Stampede and the others because you have 12 dinosaurs excluding the changelings. I am not so sure about keeping Gishath, Sun's Avatar either. Here is my deck that I've been working on; I changed the commander from Gishath to the egg lady, Dinosaur eggs are better than Dragons. Maybe, it will give you some ideas. Any suggestions are welcome as well.
