Creature — Shapeshifter
Changeling (This card is every creature type at all times.)
As long as a creature card with flying is in a graveyard, Cairn Wanderer has flying. The same is true for fear, first strike, double strike, deathtouch, haste, landwalk, lifelink, protection, reach, trample, shroud, and vigilance.

The effect your replicating is Xathrid Slyblade , but unlike the Slyblade your creatures don't have any protection. Glissa, the Traitor also has both deathtouch and first strike, it even has a degree of synergy with your equipment. Ambush Viper has flash, so it can essentially function as a kill spell. Arena is a repeatable fight effect stapled to a land. The gods, Rhonas the Indomitable and Pharika, God of Affliction could be made for this deck, given it's themes...
Majestic Myriarch, isn't a new idea Cairn Wanderer , Soulflayer and Odric, Lunarch Marshal , but since none of your creatures have trample (sure they could Chariot of Victory but it costs 3 to cast and you only have 2) it can still be chump blocked by Lingering Souls in most cases.You could run Skinshifter , to provide trample or flying, alternatively use a cheap trampler like Charging Badger . Hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.

Cairn Wanderer is technically a zombie, but its strategy is to abuse graveyards to go tall. The purpose of my deck is to go wide with a large zombie army and a variety of utility zombies, in addition to large amounts of tokens. Cairn Wanderer is not a utility zombie, and appears to be used for getting in lots of damage with some mixtures of evasiveness. However, in commander, Cairn Wanderer is just irrelevant to all the combos, removal, and overall nullification of combat damage, unless the commander can empower creatures like it, which is something that The Scarab God does not effectively do in this case.

Have you considered Cairn Wanderer? It's technically a zombie and feeds off creatures in graveyards..

I think the double protection of Paladin en-Vec is worth considering. Being able to have an untouchable creature against red decks is always nice, and I usually prefer him to Fiendslayer Paladin - I suppose it depends on how much you value the lifelink. Northern Paladin also seems like a gamble, unless you know you regularly fight against black or mostly-black decks.
Enough knights have printed abilities (usually first strike, sometimes protections) that Cairn Wanderer might also be worth considering? Even something like a dead Skyhunter Skirmisher would make him a force to be reckoned with.
