I would drop a few creatures to focus more on other cards that have synergy with zombies and have some cards that have interaction.
Rooftop Storm is a good enchantment since it will make all you zombie creatures cost so you can focus more on dumping mana into Scarab god.
Whip of Erebos is a good card for your creature focused deck since it will keep your life total at a nice spot
Endless ranks of the damned is pretty much a card that will build you a massive army of zombie if it’s not dealt with quickly.
You can also use Altar of Dementia to sacrifice your board in response to a board wipe to fill your opponent’s graveyards to give Scarab god more targets.

In making my Sygg, Tollfolk and Governor-Goddess Ephara Decks, I became very interested in turn-related effects, and that inspire this card, as well as Klothys, God of Destiny, who switches the way usually work, whereas most Gruul cards use green's might to accomplish red's free spirit, She uses Red's fury to express nature's law which green cares about.
Based on (Gerðr)[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ger%C3%B0r] in Kaldheim.
Khyrteh, Goddess of Polar Winter
Legendary Snow Creature - God
Protection from instants
You may cast Khyrteh, Goddess of Polar Winter
Whenever a player casts a spell at a time they couldn't cast a sorcery, that player loses 5 life.
At the beginning of your endstep, if you cast no spells this turn, search your library for a card, then shuffle your library and put that card on top of it and you gain 5 life.
This deck would use Eidolon of Rhetoric, Rule of Law, Curse of Exhaustion, Ethersworn Canonist, Oppression, Uba Mask, Tainted AEther, Desolation, Angelic Arbiter, Nullstone Gargoyle, and Painful Quandary effects to force my opponents to make difficult decisions. Bloodchief Ascension, Strionic Resonator, etc. would also give you more advantage from this ability.
Tax effects, like Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance, Trinisphere, Lodestone Golem, Trinisphere, Nether Void, Glowrider, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Aura of Silence, Spelltithe Enforcer, Chancellor of the Annex and Feroz's Ban
Decree of Pain, Decree of Justice, Astral Drift, Death Pulse, Dirge of Dread, Eternal Dragon, Gempalm Avenger, Gempalm Polluter, Renewed Faith, Stir the Sands, Sunfire Balm and Abandoned Sarcophagus & Archfiend of Ifnir, also Oketra's Attendant, Undead Gladiator, Bloodsoaked Champion, Dread Wanderer, Nether Spirit, Nether Traitor, Reassembling Skeleton, Bloodghast, Angel of Sanctions,Anointer Priest, Sacred Cat, Dark Depths, Thespian's Stage, Shambling Vent, etc. to avoid 'casting' spells.
grand arbiter synergizes well... yeah...
I'm a stax player who got into the deck because of Death and Taxes, especially Mother of Runes, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (Her printing got me into standard/formal play), Gaddock Teeg, and Iona, Shield of Emeria.
I really just made a card I wish existed...
I'd like to see another Kaldheim God!

So, I don't see any of the normal Nekusar cards here, and if you don't mind, could you explain why? Haha. Dictate of Kruphix, Font of Mythos, Temple Bell, Howling Mine, Teferi's Puzzle Box, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Spiteful Visions, even Anvil of Bogardan, or Forced Fruition.
You may also consider running a few board wipes at least. Vandalblast is quite good. Cyclonic Rift is amazing if you have one, they are a little pricey. Toxic Deluge, Damnation, even things such as Crux of Fate or Decree of Pain would be better than having no way to deal with a massive board state.
Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, and Whispersilk Cloak are all excellent options for protecting Nekusar or other key pieces of your board as well. Just make sure you give him Shroud after you equip or enchant him if you're wanting to do so.
Sorry for the paragraph...this went a little longer than I wanted, but I really love Nekusar and while my deck got stolen about 2 years ago...I really am considering rebuilding him, he is an absolute blast to pilot.

Hi, welcome to edh!
First off, I want to say I think the deck looks great so far! I've been playing Yuriko for about 8-9 months now, and here are some things I'd suggest:
Mu Yanling I personally don't like planeswalkers in Yuriko decks. Since you won't have very good blockers, it likely won't survive until your next turn. I'd play something like Thassa, God of the Sea instead
Decree of Pain the cycling mode hurts your creatures much more than the rest of the table since you play lots of 1/1 's and 2/2 's. Commit / Memory has a cmc of 10, and can be a temporary removal spell or counterspell
Kindred Dominance unless you have an effect like Conspiracy out on the board, this hurts you a lot too. I'd play something like Evacuation instead. It's instant speed, and you can re-play your creatures a lot faster than your opponents can.
12-16. Inkfathom Infiltrator, Invisible Stalker, Quickling, Shadowmage Infiltrator, and Spark Double aren't good enough to justify their mana cost in my opinion. Some replacements I would suggest are Changeling Outcast, Dimir Infiltrator, Gudul Lurker, Mist-Cloaked Herald, Tormented Soul, and Baleful Strix
I hope this was helpful! If you want to check out my Yuriko deck, the link is https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/26-07-19-yuriko-edh/
Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!

Decree of Pain can refill you hand at the same time, to fill up with gas after the boardwipe.
In Garruk's Wake has high CMC, but only affects your opponents.

February 2020 update:
Deck holds up very well in multiplayer, though some of the clerics' abilities aren't as relevant as I'd expected them to be so time to shave a bit off of the top for removal and more mana ramp. Some of the existing removal is being swapped for more versatile/lower CMC cards as well. I'm torn between Devoted Caretaker and Giver of Runes but went with Giver since its activation doesn't have a mana cost.
Future: I do like the suggestions of Blood Speaker, Children of Korlis, Daru Spiritualist, Shaman En-Kor and Heirloom Blade and I'll see if I can eventually fit some or all of them in somehow, particularly the Blood Speaker and Blade.
