You have several duplicate cards in an EDH format deck, including Custodi Squire, Farsight Adept, Infantry Veteran, Lieutenants of the Guard, Guildless Commons, Secluded Steppe, Flicker of Fate and Spectral Searchlight.

For mono-white decks, I always suggest New Benalia, Dawn of Hope, Legion's Landing  Flip, and Smothering Tithe as basic utility cards. Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are good for making deals in the "I remove this threat, do me a favour" sense as well.

If you want some value for interaction, then the answer is cheap versatile spells. Here are my favourites:

You are playing multiple mana artefacts. I don't like them. If you look at your curve you have plenty to do. I think you can better put more lands in your deck then these mana rocks. Only exceptions are rocks that help you more than getting more than just 1 mana for 3 mana. Spectral Searchlight is something that you can use to help your opponents to kill each other before killing you.

What about cards that give other player token while giving us some tool for the end game:

Hunted Dragon

Hunted Horror

Hunted Lammasu

And more politics tools:

Virtus's Maneuver

Spectral Searchlight

Victory Chimes

Mathas, Fiend Seeker

Manipulation:

Master Warcraft

I suggested you lot of cards, some that fit aikidos, some control, some politics and some about winning the game.

I thinks some of them at least could be used by this deck or at least why you don't think they would suit this deck :)

Still think this deck should add one or 2 more winning that to rely on opponent creatures or opponent willing to attack you (either spells: Torment of Hailfire , Rolling Earthquake , Molten Disaster , enchantment: Captive Audience or creatures Master of Cruelties , Archfiend of Despair, Virtus the Veiled

Great primer =)

Victory Chimes and Spectral Searchlight. Political Mana.

Spectral Searchlight is fun when you have a teammate since you can use it to give your teammate mana. At any rate I think it's better than Mana Prism. Pariah could be fun since you can enchant opponents' creatures with it.

You might like these too: Magus of the Candelabra , Fertile Ground , Market Festival , Captured by the Consulate , Silence , Pir's Whim , Virtus's Maneuver , Zndrsplt's Judgment , Imperial Mask , Capital Punishment , Torment of Hailfire , Exsanguinate , Overwhelming Splendor , Curse of Shallow Graves

Spectral Searchlight seems to be on theme here.

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.
