Creature — Cat Warrior
Whenever Qasali Slingers or another Cat enters the battlefield under your control, you may destroy target artifact or enchantment.

Hello, fellow cat and dog enjoyer. I noticed that you pretty much stuffed every cat or dog in naya colors in that you could find but not a single changeling. While changelings might not be satisfying since they don't look like a cat or a dog, they provide great value because they actually trigger Rin & Seris ability twice generating two tokens instead of just one. They also benefit from both lord effects. Notable examples of changelings are:
- Taurean Mauler
- Irregular Cohort
- Masked Vandal
- Impostor of the Sixth Pride (actually looks like a cat!)
- Chameleon Colossus
- Crib Swap : Removal that also nets you two tokens!
- Maskwood Nexus : Everything becomes a changeling. This means that every creature you cast will generate two tokens. For you deck, this is just a better Parallel Lives!
Additionally, you seem to have missed (or purposfully no included?) some rather powerful cats and dogs:
- Black Market Tycoon : Not the best ramp card, but it's ramp that is on theme!
- Oreskos Explorer : This dude gets better the more expensive your mana base is as he does fetch every Plain card not just basics.
- Qasali Pridemage : Suprised to see that one missing.
- Brimaz, King of Oreskos : It's just a good card for 3 mana, honestly.
- Feline Sovereign : Lord, you can never have enough of those
- Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist : Don't forget our favorite cursed cat. Her effect is actually really strong
- Prava of the Steel Legion : Lord
- Skyhunter Strike Force : Lord
- Alms Collector : On theme draw effect that can absolutely wreck your opponent if you flash it into a wheel effect. The secret lair artwork is also the most adorable cat you will ever own.
- Leonin Warleader : Stronk
- Qasali Slingers : Very good artifact and enchantment hate. Basically an on theme Aura Shards
- Loyal Warhound : On theme ramp.
Just a few for you to consider. I have a list of all good (in my opinion) cats and dogs in my Rin & Seri list: Rin and Seri
You also do not seem to have a lot of draw options in your deck. Depending on the pod you are playing in, board wipes might be present and can absolutely wreck your game plan. Draw effects help you recover from this. Sadly, Naya is not the best color combination for drawing cards and most of the good draw effects are really expensive. You can see some suggestions for draw effects in my deck list: Rin and Seri
I would highly recommend proxying if your pod allows it. Be careful with draw effect like Camaraderie or Shamanic Revelation. They look good on paper in a token theme but they are "win more" cards in my opinion. If your board got wiped and you draw into those cards, they will not do a thing to help you recover. A wheel effect like Wheel of Misfortune however, will draw you 7 fresh cards to start again.
Lastly, I would recommend getting some tutors in there. Eladamri's Call, Green Sun's Zenith, Natural Order and the like. The best card in your deck by far is Jetmir, Nexus of Revels. He is basically your secret commander. If you can resolve him with 9 creatures on the board, you can devastate your opponents out of the blue. All the more important to be able to find him if you need him.
That's all for now. Have fun!

I swear I had Fleetfoot Panther in the deck, Im going to have to work that back in.
Aluren is very tempting but I fear it would be a lightning rod

ETB effects on most creatures. (sometimes provided by your commander in the case of changelings)
Ping opponents when creatures enter the battlefield with cards like Impact Tremors. Other effects would be welcome too if they were good enough.
All while trying to make it mesh with Rin and Seri, Inseparable for extra value.
As for what I'd cut... I'd probably do away with some of the classic Rin and Seri, Inseparable cards focusing on making a huge board to swing with. You have several token-doubling effects in your deck, and I think if you're going to place an emphasis on pinging with Purphoros, God of the Forge effects then you're pulling yourself in two different directions. If your goal is tribal then Purphoros, God of the Forge might be a decent card, but it is not a win condition. If your goal is pinging and tokens, then tribal buffs might not be ideal. I'm talking specifically about synergies that give you big attackers, not synergies that help you in other ways like Qasali Slingers.
Example cuts would be: Pack Leader, Vivien Reid, Coat of Arms, Akroma's Memorial, Cathars' Crusade, maybe even some of your board protection spells could be let go, though if you go that route I'd also get rid of Craterhoof and Triumph as well. Those are great win conditions if you have a board, and it's worth thinking about keeping them in if you think you can manage to protect your guys.
It's hard to argue that this would be stronger than a straight-up Rin and Seri, Inseparable cEDH list, but it would be a fun and surprising way to go about things. This requires you to find those ping upon creature entering effects and keep them safe which can be a challenge in itself. It's really more of a Dina, Soul Steeper or Purphoros, God of the Forge commander deck concept that's been fit into a less oppressive shell.
Of course, the other route is to just ditch the pinging strategy and play full attack damage which you said you were trying to avoid doing.

Looks very solid, and I like this creative build for piloting Reaper King.
If you really want to double down on making use of your critters popping into play, you might want to find room for Aura Shards and Qasali Slingers. There are never any shortage of mana rocks or funky engine cards in a given game, I find, so they should free up Reaper King's destroy-target-permanent triggers for other, harder to get at targets.
I'd also highly recommend Maskwood Nexus, as the ability to make everyone trigger all of your tribal-matters effects (as well as the ability to put a scarecrow token into play each turn!) can really make for ridiculous plays. It's a strong enough effect you might want to find room for Arcane Adaptation while you're at it.
If you do go that route, then it would probably be easy to justify Harmonic Prodigy as another way to double 187 abilities. Why not go all-in, right?
The other thing that surprised me is that if you're all about banking on comes-into-play abilities, you're mostly missing out on the easiest way to reuse them: flicker effects! Ghostway, Eerie Interlude and Semester's End all let you reuse all of your CIP abilities while dodging board wipes and other removal. Might be handy to have against more control-oriented decks!

Personally I would swap:

I feel like Acidic Slime having Deathtouch is pretty annoying for this deck. Qasali Slingers does a similar job and won't kill Hans if they fight. There isn't much else that jumps out at me that solves problems and won't kill Hans. Woodfall Primus is certainly big enough that losing Hans might be acceptable, and even if it dies, you get it back to block with.
