Great deck, any Reaper King deck deserves a +1

First note, the more Reaper Kings the better. These would all act as multiple Kings and bypass the legendary rule:

Second note, ramp ramp ramp, a 5 colour deck is tough, so you need as much fixing as possible incase we need to hard cast our big stuff:

  • Triomes with fetch lands are an awesome colour fix, Zagoth Triome
  • land ramp is always better then mana rocks, adding in the 2 mana ramp spells will help you see a turn 3/4 Reaper king, Three Visits
  • mana fixing and extra land drops help get to the goal too, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove

Lastly, try to trim the fat, you got some good cards like Trinket Mage and Trophy Mage but without tons of excellent targets their potential is wasted here. Ibwould save them for a different deck.

For your consideration, although I'm guessing they were already under your radar, Sigil of Sleep and Suq'Ata Firewalker . If you end up going for the beautifully bureaucratic wizard flavor of Aphetto Alchemist , then Gilded Lotus , Doubling Cube and Astral Cornucopia look desirable for making blue mana to get extra mileage out of Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura . Trophy Mage and Tribute Mage could hunt down Thousand-Year Elixir and Magewright's Stone for you. Walking Ballista might be an all too often encountered wincon but it does possess strong Tim-like qualities. The deck's looking good, have fun and happy pinging!

Grubbernaut, I see why you suggest Trophy Mage (tutor Oketra's Monument ). It's worth considering-- thanks!

Maybe Trophy Mage or something similar?

In either case, I dig it. Cheers!

DonaldFuck Yeah, I have a lot of triple blue in this deck, and even double red can occasionally be tricky, So I've left if for now. And while Burnished Hart can also be fetched with Trophy Mage since its an artifact creature, it does come online slower, which probably isn't ideal for the mana hungry nature of this deck, so I've left Chromatic Lantern for now and may keep it that way. Isochron Scepter with Dramatic Reversal is always good, but it goes better in my Mizzix of the Izmagnus spellslinger deck where I usually win with massive x-spells, and I've been thinking about adding it as an alternate win con for Reiterate there.

I might also run Trophy Mage , to fetch Academy Manufactor and Cloudstone Curio . Heck, it bootstraps an entire infinite combo: cast Trophy to fetch Cloudstone, play a creature, bounce Trophy, tutor for Manufactor, then you can loop two 1-mana creatures infinitely.

For artifact recursion, Trash for Treasure is a useful one for cheating out big artifacts from the graveyard, and is a flavor win as you can literally trade your treasure tokens in for trash... err... your other artifacts XD Also, Goblin Welder is another classic one that can do the same thing. Trading Post is another flexible option, as I can see your deck being able to use most of the options. Though, I'll admit, I usually use these cards to cheat into play big artifact creatures that I've dumped into the graveyard, so you might want to consider this as a side option.

In terms of red artifact tutors, it's a little dicy, as most of the decent options use either blue or black. Inventors' Fair could work once you get all the needed artifacts on board. Some creature options also exist (if you're just looking to make a weird "illegal" fun deck.) Treasure Mage Trophy Mage Tribute Mage and Trinket Mage can fetch out needed artifacts, as well as having limited synergy with Alesha, Who Smiles at Death . Though looking at your current list, I don't see too many bomb cards that would be useful with recuring your artifacts. Maybe look into adding something like Solemn Simulacrum or Golos, Tireless Pilgrim ? In red you have things like Gamble , Hoarding Dragon and Goblin Engineer .

Hmmm... Sliver decks, while fun to pilot, either are dealt with early and fizzle out, or they end up overwhelming if you don't keep their creatures in check. If you're leaning more into the 5 color splashability casual deck, Rakdos Charm is a good catch-all card that deals with a lot of strategies. Even a well timed Blasphemous Act can slow them down. In your current build, I see you do run some interaction, but I think you'll find there are some more consistent better options out there!
