"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .
One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

For lands, Cabal Stronghold doesn't make any sense. You're running 7 Basic Swamps. If you wanted to put in Cabal Coffers with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , that could work, but I doubt you want to put your money there. Cascading Cataracts, Waterveil Cavern, Survivor's Encampment, Shimmering Grotto, Rupture Spire, Guildmage's Forum, and Gateway Plaza should be the next to go. You're running a 2-color deck, so you don't need such bad fixing. I'd also lose Everglades.
Nighthowler is the only really bad creature that I see, although you'll probably want more if you're on the self-mill plan. Triskaidekaphobia and Tree of Perdition are cute. I don't think I would run that, but if you're going to, run Clutch of the Undercity and Dimir House Guard to tutor up the pieces.
Spinal Embrace is a cool card, but it's pretty inefficient. For that kind of mana, you could be running Kindred Dominance , Crux of Fate , Deadly Tempest , Decree of Pain , Extinguish All Hope , or Life's Finale (I would go with this one, given your commander). Cancel is a no-go. Counterspell , Negate , Swan Song , Countersquall , Dissolve , Arcane Denial , Disallow , Sinister Sabotage and Dream Fracture should all be in the deck before Cancel.
Tome of the Guildpact is pretty bad in this deck. If you want rocks, you should be running Sky Diamond , Charcoal Diamond , Coldsteel Heart , Mind Stone , Thought Vessel , and Talisman of Dominance before you touch that or Darksteel Ingot in a 2-color deck. If you're looking for card draw, Phyrexian Arena , Syphon Mind , Fact or Fiction , Tidings , Sign in Blood , and Night's Whisper are all better.
If you wanna mill, Altar of the Brood , Mesmeric Orb , Dread Summons , Sphinx's Tutelage , Psychic Corrosion , Traumatize , Patient Rebuilding , Memory Erosion , and Whetstone are all more powerful than Millstone (though I do appreciate it's OG status).
If you want to see what other people are playing in their Scarab God decks, I recommend checking out the EDHREC page for him.

The nastiest Zurgo deck I ever faced was full of boardwipes. After all, you can't block if your creatures are dead. You're in the best colors for it, too. You've got Chain Reaction , Wrath of God , Damnation , Day of Judgment , and Hour of Revelation go for 4 mana or less. Above 4 mana, you've got Jokulhaups , Deadly Tempest , and Phyrexian Rebirth .

Okay, I am back! I have more suggestions for you!
Firstly, I saw that you had Sunforger as a card you would like to get and I can't stress this enough: YOU NEED SUNFORGER. With so much removal at instant speed Sunforger becomes a busted card for your deck!
As far as other suggestions, I recommend the following:
Sins of the Past is basically Yawgmoth's Will or Mizzix's Mastery but a bit more mana required to cast for a huge benefit of free casting from the graveyard.
Comeuppance is the best rattlesnake card ever
Fire Covenant is a decent board wipe if you have life to spare or really want to shut down specific creatures. It may not work for your deck though as you already have tons of removal
Deadly Tempest Same as above in that it may not be useful to you but could potentially wreck certain opponents
Increasing Vengeance Another fork variant but castable from the bin. I would take out Fork or Reverberate for it
Torment of Hailfire Obviously a good finisher especially with the amount of redundant copy spells you have. Better than Cut//Ribbons
Batwing Brume A nice psuedo fog that potentially stings the offending opponent
Hide / Seek Some things are better tucked into the library or exiled rather than destroyed

32 lands is pretty low especially for a 6 drop commander. The ramp helps but the last thing you wanna do is miss land drops. I try to run at least 36, if not 38.
Standstill is cute but your deck isn’t set to abuse it and it draw two opponents 3 cards. It’s kinda cool to recur it but I think you have better options. Font of fertility is also too cute I think. Three is a lot for 1 land and Wayfarer bauble is colorless so I’d cut Font.
Second chance is interesting especially with doom whisper to get infinite turns on demand, but fair warning some people will get pretty mad at you for running it. If you’re cool with that, go ahead but be ready for the salt you may receive.
You’re a valuetown deck but I think you still need one more straight up late game bomb to draw into. Perhaps an Avenger of Zendikar or a Deadeye Navigator. Wins if unanswered and works well with Muldrotha. Emrakul, the Promised End is hilarious and very mean. On the silly side Clone Legion and Archeomancer is not good but very funny. Even a big durdler like Thunderfoot Baloth or Realm Seekers can finish a game.
You’re short on mass removal spell other then bane of the living which I don’t think is very good. Not everything has to be synergistic with Muldrotha. Toxic Deluge, Decree of Pain, Deadly Tempest for the budget, all will get the job done. I’d cut The Eldest Reborn for at least one.
Hope you enjoy the format!

Harvest Season will usually be worse than Kodama's unless you run significantly more 1 and 2 drops. I think you could use more ramp cards in general. One with Nature will do some goddamn work in your deck and is a one-drop.
Infect could be nice. People will assume you're running it anyway. Triumph of the Hordes is a good $ option. Otherwise Tainted Strike or Grafted Exoskeleton. You're going wide, so Golari anthem effects could be good 1x Overwhelming Stampede, Pathbreaker Ibex. Beastmaster does it really well and I see you already run it. Is an awesome card to drop when you already have 7 creatures out.
Reclaim, Regrowth, and especially Creeping Renaissance are some of the best cards you could run. Your creatures will be boardwiped. Being able to grab 100% of your creatures from the graveyard to your hand stwice is amazing.

I’m noticing a lot of single target removal, which is fine. Personally, I prefer more global effects (like Fleshbag Marauder) that scale better in a multiplayer game. Maybe cut Walk the Plank and other sourcery-speed answers for this kind of effect. The same can be said about Cabal Therapy type effects. They’re pretty good in 1v1 matches to pick out stuff you’d otherwise have trouble dealing with, but in multiplayer they don’t do enough.
Black has a ton of great sweepers that seem like they would fit into the deck. Damnation is the best, but Life's Finale, Decree of Pain, and Deadly Tempest are all great effects to have that won’t cost you as much, and will clear the board more effectively than Flaying Tendrils and Yahenni's Expertise.
The Disentomb effects seem kinda counterintuitive to the reanimation plan. With this kind of deck, your trying to cheat something big out early, not get something back to hand where it will either stay for multiple turns or cost a ton of mana to get back.
Hope this helps!
