Enter the God-Eternals
Enter the God-Eternals deals 4 damage to target creature and you gain life equal to the damage dealt this way. Target player puts the top four cards of their library into their graveyard. Amass 4. (Put four +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.

Vraska's Contempt and Alela, Artful Provocateur and Enter the God-Eternals seem like useful cards! I really, really wish I could use Baral, Chief of Compliance ! Now that's an awesome wizard card! Tyrant's Scorn and Oath of Kaya seem very useful too!

Sure thing mate, brewing and testing is the best part of Magic!
Looking at it again though, I think we'd be better off going all in on the tempo or not at all, as right now we still don't have enough pressure.
I believe though, that it would be more fun (and competitive) with a controlling deck that only plays maybe some amount of Gadwick, the Wizened and God-Eternal Kefnet as actual creatures, but then having Commence the Endgame and Enter the God-Eternals on top of that. This way you could still profitably play Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and The Magic Mirror AND you gain access to awesome cards like Thought Erasure , Drown in the Loch , black removal and maybe Liliana, Dreadhorde General and/or Ugin, the Ineffable . Now you can control them out, out-grind, mill them (or yourself for Jace lulz - Mirror is good for that too) and apply decent late game threats.
I realize that is quite far from where you started though... Either way, good luck!

There is another little interplay that begs to be included here, but it may take a bit of deck testing to find how we can include the extra cards. Contentious Plan , Flux Channeler and/or The Elderspell can generate planes-walker loyalty counters, then Ashiok, Dream Render can supplement your planes-walkers and use his -1 ability to disrupt your opponent's game. My first thought would be to maybe drop Enter the God-Eternals and 2 Narset to make some room. I would also look to find room in the side-board for something like Aid the Fallen

Here is a revised decklist (using some cards you already have) to give you an idea. You do not have to follow it exactly.
Enchantments (4) 4 Dreadhorde Invasion

I'm seeing 2 copies of Omniscience in your list right now. This is skewing your CMC avg and curve so a little harder to figure out where you actually are on the scale as it will depend on what you replace it with.
I don't think having some targeted removal is a bad idea. Sometimes you just need one oppressive thing gone and then you can implement your strategy. However, as things don't stay dead in this format, that targeted removal is better off being an exile effect if possible. A card like Reality Shift will make sure that creature stays gone. I agree that By Force is a pretty good include. An overloaded Vandalblast does work too. Tyrant's Scorn and Enter the God-Eternals are a little underwhelming for EDH, they really don't do enough for their CMC in this format.
Arcane Signet will be amazing for the deck...once it's available for sale. Have to wait for Throne to come out for that.
As for theme...no In Bolas's Clutches ? I know it's a more expensive Control Magic where you don't really care that much about making the target legendary but the flavor is there and the versatility of being able to steal any permanent could be relevant if the target is spice enough.

Maybe look at Enter the God-Eternals for self mill and a some spot removal. But maybe it messes up the whole "No Zombie" thing.
No data for this card yet.
