This is one of the reasons why I fear individual players and their particular decks and not individual commanders. I used to play with a group that would run the jankiest shit like Reaper King tribal scarecrows combo or Bladewing the Risen storm - things that when you hear about them your first thought is "What the fuck? How does that work?". However, the players behind those decks are absolute monsters and will win out of nowhere turn two or three. Easily some of the best players I've ever played with, and a big reason why I love tuning my decks to be the best they can be.

Those are all good choices I think. It's pretty fun to fiddle with a deck list, but it's a good habit to fiddle with it before you order the cards, or you'll end up with a collection of weird cards that don't quite make the cut sitting around. I could be wrong, but I think the mono-colour non-legendary dragons from D&D don't translate well to Commander, with 40 life and 3 opponents, they will feel too small for their mana input I fear. Even my Eldrazi deck, which runs pretty big Eldrazi tends to feel a bit small at times, a 9 mana value creature in Standard is not very big in Commander unfortunately.

I was thinking that both Stinging Study and possibly Rush of Knowledge. Spirit of Resistance might be worth a look if you find getting Tiamat out isn't hard. Rush can draw a bunch, I run it in Reaper King because he's 10 mana, but drawing more than 5 off of Rush is good value IMHO. You could look at some of the Changelings out there, but TBH most aren't very good creatures, and dragons can beat serious face if you can get them out.

Thank you, DreadKhan for your input. Blinking my changelings sounds brutal (for my opponents).
I actually plan on using the Reaper King more as a constant threat in the commandzone and only bring him out if absolutely necessary. My goal was to build a WUBRG Changeling Deck. The Reaper provided that and some nice benefits on top.

If you're already running Saheeli Rai, then Felidar Guardian seems like a good fit for the deck. Not only does it provide an infinite token combo, but also can flicker any of your scarecrows to trigger Reaper King's vindicate effect.

I actually put together an Atraxa, Praetors' Voice phyrexian themed -1-1 proliferate deck (only digital for brainstorming) and now going to think about Reaper King more.

Then i will decide what to buy in paper. Scarecrow tribal and changelings look pretty uninteresting tho. Most changelings have no real flavour. And scarecrows are mostly bad.

Reaper King voltron with many scythes would be cool too but doesnt use his ability at all.

Reaper King is such a cool card with a really awesome Artwork and flavour. I wish i had a fun viable way to build it right now.

Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is a bit overused (and no 5c unfortunately)but a -1-1 theme with loads of proliferate feels like a really cool way to play.

Any opinions?

Reaper King is so much fun to build around

I know the statistics but i am a bit overwhelmed by them so i asked for your personal suggestions.

Powerlevel of my playgroup is all over the place so i would go for 6 to 7.

Kenrith, Returned King as a politics deck would be an option too. And maybe wouldnt draw as much hate as i could play it a bit more friendly.

I would have some really nice targets from Jodah, Archmage Eternal like all Eldrazi Titans and some other mean stuff. But my Playgroup would probably hate that too much.

For now i think i would consider

Kenrith, Returned King politics, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami voltron, Reaper King Scarecrows/halloween themed control deck

I think Reaper King 5 color scarecrows with clones lots of clones would be cool. Or Spirits tribal with O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami as the cmdr would be cool.
