Whenever there's a "Deck Names" segment I always feel like I need a score card or something to figure out what all of them are getting at. Special mentions to the ones I'm really not sure about:
Is the Izzet / Is It segment also a (tangential) reference to Oops All Spells? I enjoy the wordplay on Izzet / Is It / It Is, at least.
Mono-red -> Domer Pile. As in going to the dome?
"Servo Facts of Life and Death... And Taxes" I get as a mashup of Servo Facts, Death & Taxes, and Facts of Life and Death, but I'm not sure what Facts of Life and Death is referencing, and that might explain the Aether Vial response?
"Where it's at" I do not get. I get that 59 plains and a Fumigate is really bad in that you basically have no way to win, but I can't put together the reference, if any.

Shout outs to "Raymond Scott's Powerhouse in E flat". Initially I thought "Too many moving parts" was solely a musical reference, but after looking up the song and finding out it was frequently used in Warner Bros. Cartoons whenever ACME machines were in motion... It's a rickety combo indeed, but when it goes off, you catch the rabbit and the roadrunner.

This seems to be 4 mashups, not 3: Servo Facts, Facts of Life, Life and Death, Death and Taxes.

I'm about 70% sure it's a two turntables and a microphone riff...
While no one overhear you quickly tell me not cow cow.
