+1, I Love Marwyn! Have to tried out Kindred Summons ? It can double the amount of elves on the field and can pump up Marwyn for lethal, especially with Eladamri, Lord of Leaves on the board.

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 Charge - Swarm tokens, obliterate things with Reaper King , swing for game

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

Rampant Growth , Harrow , Explosive Vegetation , Far Wanderings , Kodama's Reach , Primal Growth - All slight variations of mana ramp

I'm short on time right now, so I'll pick up where I left off tomorrow.

Kindred Summons good card not something overly useful to me in this build. Far to many tokens over creature cards and the cards themselves are more there for the tribal aspect.

Mirror Entity I had not considered. It may find it’s way in later on depending on how the current build does.

And yes the name is the song from Nightwish.

Have you considered Mirror Entity ? It is a reasonable mana sink and also, technically, a wolf.

What is your opinion on Kindred Summons ? Is it too risky considering the number of wrath effects people run in the format?

Also, is the deck's name a reference to Nightwish?

You may want to consider cards such as Brass Herald and Kindred Summons . These will assist you in filtering down into more Slivers. Since Slivers are, by default, an attack-heavy Tribe you may want to also highly consider Kindred Discovery .

In fact, with cdkime's recommendations of Vanquisher's Banner and Amulet of Vigor plus just my aforementioned Kindred Discovery , you dramatically improve the speed of your deck :)

Hope this helps!

Demarge i have no idea how to delete comments lol. I do appreciate your comments though, Mind's Eye is in the deck for the sole reason of being able to Parley, and use any mana i receive to draw extra cards due to my opponents drawing. I have considered taking it out for awhile. Archangel of Thune should definitely leave the deck! Thank you for reminding me of that! Lastly Kindred Summons is sort of a game ender, if i have 5 dorks in play and none of them are my infinite dorks i have a chance at finding 1 or all of them, but it is also filler thank you for the comments!

oh man the downscroll (maybe monthly clear up comments or make clears after conversations die down) but for cuts for those 3 lands you got I'd suggest Mind's Eye (really slow draw engine) Archangel of Thune (you don't seem to be abusing her power which would be more than up to 1 trigger a turn) and Kindred Summons (because if you have enough elves to make it good you likely have plenty of elves already).

your previous opinions on what to cut might be a bit important to getting you ahead enough vs some of the stronger decks or just being your biggest payoff to win.
