I have a deck with this combo, only 2 Commanders. 

Remember though, John can only Ready a non-agent Mars creature, while its nice if you are in Sanctum it really isn't much benefit since you can't reap something else after you ready it.   

As I type this, I see your point though, if you can get all 5 out you can get some nice generation, but you'd also then need more Mars on the table.  Anything with a couple John's and other mars cards can basically generate enough amber for a key and then some. 

Toss down a megamouth and things can get crazy!!

There is a reason I kill John as soon as he hits the table.

This is my favorite Mars house combo of my decks:  

Sample Collection
Total Recall
Crystal Hive
Custom Virus
Grabber Jammer
Grabber Jammer
Grabber Jammer
“John Smyth”
“John Smyth”
Yxilx Dominator
Zorg
Biomatrix Backup
 

If you can get John's down and any other mars creature, things get bonkers with Crystal Hive

Thanks! I’m also running 2 grabber jammers

this is the deck. It looks quicker on paper, I find it kinda situational. But out of a booster box this was the best deck.  Dis/shadow I have a real hard time facing. 

Ah a Time Traveler deck.  Looks pretty solid, good not great.  I have a similar time traveler deck that I love playing.  It will win some games  for sure.

John Smyth/Ulyq Megamouth work even better! I have a deck with them and two Squawkers. Can create ridiculous amounts of Æmber from hand with just a small preexisting board of even mixed houses.

do you this deck would be better to enroll in local turny play?

The latter seems stronger due to sheer creature count. Your other deck seems like it would have issues hitting anything with the Remiels in the first place. Obviously if you've played them and like the first deck better, go for it, but I'd strongly suggest spending some time with the second deck.

I have a deck with that on a smaller scale:

What annoys me most about it is that Dis has so little utility in it so while I can do Megamouth -> Remiel, the combo then runs out as I can... just reap with a dis guy. Maybe.

If I get pitlord out and have to choose Dis, there is a bit of doing a dis turn then Dominator B -> Megamouth -> Remiel -> John Smyth? -> maybe something else then? But the board can never survive long enough to pull of anything cool.

What is the combo here?

Remiel can ready John, but John can't ready Remiel. Is it just being able to get a bunch of other creatures ready whenever?

Remiel doesn't ready creatures, neither does Ulyq. There is no combo, though great synergy: Reap with Ulyq -> use Remiel to reap -> use a non-Sanctum creature to reap, then reap with John -> ready Ulyq -> use another non-Mars creature.

Now, if you also have Crystal Hive out, things get really silly.
