Great minds think alike! I have a similar list for this trio (https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/none-can-rustle-the-triumvirate/) except it leans more toward combos.
You might consider these: Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded , Prismite , Stonework Packbeast , Gemstone Array , Signpost Scarecrow , Enchanted Carriage , Lavastep Raider , Sun-Collared Raptor , Soulbright Flamekin , Loxodon Lifechanter , Cloudgoat Ranger , Mastery of the Unseen , Diviner's Wand , Cloudchaser Kestrel , Cavalier of Flame , Bomat Bazaar Barge

I like the deck, but I'd like to make four suggestions:
Scaretiller can get you lands out of your graveyard, which is especially good since you'll probably discard a few and it triggers Quintorious, as well as being one of the only ways to land ramp in Boros and it does well with Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, and, if you want to add them, the Panoramas.
Reanimation Spells like Angelic Renewal , Breath of Life , False Defeat , or Resurrection are also pretty good for the deck too I'd say. They trigger Quintorious, can regrab a utility creature like a monarch card or a graveyard to hand card to double trigger if you need it, cheat out Ulamog's Crusher, or just basically cheat on Quintorious's Commander tax if he dies, although that is a bit risky but its better than paying 7 or 9.
Maybe also a card like Marshaling Cry as an extra board pump in case you need to go aggro in case you don't get Rally the Peasants. Its also better early game since you can cycle it away.
I understand that you are going for more combo than aggro, but if you want to get even more spirits, play some auras that return themselves back to hand when enchanted creature dies, like Fiery Mantle , Undying Rage , and Brilliant Halo . I'm the most shaky on them because they don't do anything without Quintorious, but with them they can grab an extra spirit per turn. Perhaps if you could include a Prismite Effect and an Impact Tremors effect, with Ashnods Altar and Starnhiem Courser, you can combo off with them by playing mantle on a Spirit, saccing the spirit, prismite effect filters and starhiem discounts so you can pay the one red to get mantle back and get another spirit, and get infinite Tremors triggers
Other than that, I really like the deck, although I'm not that great at these kinds of things either.

blightsteel wont work because he only shuffles himself
you want something that shuffles the entire graveyard into your library that can be triggered when you discard
the key to consistency is redundancy
the least amount of redundancy for early game is 15 copys
example Grim Monolith + Zirda, the Dawnwaker + Prismite
you will need 14 other cards that can perform like
14 other cards that can reduce the activation
and 14 other cards that can color correct
now you cant always find or afford that many that's were tutors come in
if you find 8 cards that can color correct and 7 cards that can tutor any one of them you have the 15 minimum
downside is tutors put you 1 turn behind in casting the combo
but this is the only way to make it consistent

ShaDoWz_6677 I've opted to take a more unconventional approach from the regular storm decks as you can see =)
You're absolutely right that Prismite and gang, being bodies, are more vulnerable but they're the only cards I can work with at the moment that allows conversion of to colored mana at a reasonable rate. Do let me know if you come across better alternatives that gets the job done! I've included Chromatic Orrery and Mycosynth Lattice as well. Prismatic Lens will not work as it is a one time effect that requires tapping.
Adding all the mana rocks and artifact related cards to the deck to fuel the Dramatic Scepter strategy, would deviate much from my original intent of making a Spellslinger based combo deck helmed by Krark, the Thumbless , that is both fun to pilot and yet casual enough for my meta.
I've always like to take the path less travelled, which explains my choice of Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix as the partner commander here. I purposely avoided Sakashima of a Thousand Faces cause it is a popular choice and there're already plenty such decks out there (including 1 in my regular play group).

You have mana rocks in your #Maybeboard that you could use. The issue I have with Prismite and the other guy is that they are bodies. Bodies are easy to get rid of. If you even ran Prismatic Lens it'd be a much better inclusion. Your deck knows how to dig for answers and cards. Tezzeret the Seeker Whir of Invention Trophy Mage Tribute Mage Trinket Mage all help you accelerate much faster than you currently are to get where you want to be at. You can also run rocks like Fellwar Stone and the Talismans (Gruul, Simic, Izzet) And you can run the Signets as well. For a starter mana base for a storm deck, this will suffice for a Isochron Scepter to be in until you can get the Mox Opal Mox Diamond Chrome Mox Mana Crypt set ups. even if you don't want to add those 4 expensive rocks to the deck, the signets, Talisman set and Mind Stone will be enough to get you through the early/mid/late games.

ShaDoWz_6677 Thank you for your upvote and suggestions!!
My thoughts below:
Ral, Storm Conduit is an all-star in Kalamax decks. For this deck, I positioned "copy effects" as enablers rather than the core mechanic that'd propel the deck to victory. Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix 's mana ability is the key.
Aetherflux Reservoir is a good suggestion. I may try it out later to see how it gels with the rest of the deck. Adding it to my Maybeboard this instant!
Isochron Scepter pairs up nicely with Dramatic Reversal . However I do not run enough mana rocks for this combo to be consistent. Kydele would work with them too but in my play tests so far, the current untap spells would suffice without the need for Scepter.
Really appreciate the suggestions! Keep them coming if you come up with more awesome and wacky stuff... Cheers!

If your trying to ramp into your other wincons Isochron Scepter can help you get to your destination as well for Kydele or just staff winning.
I would go through some of the storm lists out there and look at what they are all using. Especially for copy spell storm decks. Kalamax, the Stormsire comes to mind when i talk about copy spell storm.
have an upvote.

Krark and Kydele is not a popular pairing with only 12 other decks on TappedOut and 20 decks on EDHREC as at 12/2/2021 but I absolutely love the chemistry between them!
Here's the deck's main game plan:
1) Summon Krark, the Thumbless and Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix . Their relatively low CMC makes it easier and being the underdogs make them less susceptible to removals/counterspells. For the value engine to kickstart, we only need Kydele on board but Krark just makes it more chaotic and fun!
4) Continue drawing and wheeling using the additional mana from #3.
7) Go to #2 and Repeat till we assemble our combos and wincons.
Looking for Upvotes +1, card suggestions and feedback for the deck! Keep the creative juices flowing and I'm looking forward to all the constructive suggestions and +1s!
