Up to one target creature gets -2/-2 until end of turn. Amass 2. (Put two +1/+1 counters on an Army you control. If you don't control one, create a 0/0 black Zombie Army creature token first.)

Personally, I don't like amass decks, but I'll do my best to help you out.
You need more creatures. Specifically cheap ones to get you to the mid-late game. Lazotep Reaver and Gleaming Overseer both somewhat fit those criteria, and give you a bit of amass effect too. Lazotep Plating offers protection and an early amass. Eternal Skylord is increasing that mana curve again, but it offers you some reach and protection you sorely need. I'd advise doing some testing on Bleeding Edge , because it's a removal help and amasses, but it's a double-black cost at turn three and comes out at sorcery speed. There's just not a good replacement for Cast Down in these colors. Sorry.
You wouldn't think of putting The Royal Scions in this deck normally, but it's grixis colors, gives you card filtering, and can give trample to your massive army to finish out games, so it's worth considering at least. Barge In isn't bad for trample either.
Now, to make room for all these suggestions, we need to take out some cards too. Relentless Advance is narrow, and for only 3 power you're spending four mana. Ill-Gotten Inheritance is low-impact and expensive. Cast Down and Fountain of Renewal just rotated. Since we're adding more creatures, Invade the City isn't as good, but it's still worth putting in the deck so I'd recommend going down to two copies of it. Widespread Brutality also loses some of its value since it now eliminates your creatures too, so maybe 2-3 copies of it as well.
I think with Fountain of Renewal and Ill-Gotten Inheritance you were too focused on not losing so much life from Dreadhorde Invasion . In this meta, you need to be prepared to lose life from your own cards. That card will only get you in trouble if you go late-game and can't draw Enter the God-Eternals .
I think WOTC will expand on the army creature-type, and then amass will have more of a place. But possibly only after all the amass effects have rotated just for balancing.

There doesn't seem to be too much value for God-Eternal Kefnet to play off of. To make more use of invasion, Enter the God-Eternals could be pretty good since it instantly makes your army big. Also, standard recently requires a bit of removal with the inclusion of proliferate and walkers so using Bleeding Edge rather than of cruelty could help build your army, and The Elderspell could be good for your sideboard for walkers.

I also would say 22 lands are perfect.

Here are some interesting Amass cards. Gleaming Overseer , Vizier of the Scorpion , Dreadhorde Invasion , Bleeding Edge , Lazotep Plating , Herald of the Dreadhorde , Grim Initiate , Enter the God-Eternals , and Invade the City . Don't forget that cards that say proliferate could boost the counters on your army and Planeswalkers so they may be fine to throw in too. The one coming to my mind is Flux Channeler .

Hey Kingleil! I quite like the idea, nice job :) I'm not into Dreadhorde Invasion though, it feels like you're actually giving an out to mono-red just by having it in your deck and the upside is not that huge. Could potentially be better in the sideboard against control? Another option for 'early amass' could be Bleeding Edge , which is acceptable removal at the same time and it's also not a dead card against control (not sure about the card though). I think the upside of Chemister's Insight being an instant is that you can leave counterspells and removal up and use it EOT, which does not happen in your build except for a mild interaction with Commence the Endgame . That's why I'd prefer Tamiyo's Epiphany instead in your specific case. Love God-Eternal Kefnet , I think it should have a slot in the deck, probably as a two-of.
