So Scarab God is one of my favorite commanders so you're in luck. I have a lot of recommendations for you. Lets start off with creatures. Creatures: Though you want mostly zombie tribal, you do want a few largely impactful cards that you can discard into your graveyard and recast with The Scarab God . Some cards I'd recommend are Sheoldred, Whispering One , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , Sower of Discord <--- This card in combination with Paradox Haze + Wound Reflection make for an extremely quick kill for 2 people, Noxious Ghoul , Ghoulcaller Gisa , Eternal Skylord , Gleaming Overseer , Undead Alchemist , Corpse Connoisseur , Lord of the Accursed , Lich Lord of Unx and Gisa and Geralf
Lands: First of all your Crypt of the Eternals isn't legal in your deck as it has red mana. Now lands are usually the most expensive part of a deck but also the most important part of the deck. If you're willing to cough up the money or want to get proxies of them here's my recommendations: Cabal Coffers , Command Tower , Crypt of Agadeem , Fabled Passage , Field of the Dead , Myriad Landscape , Nephalia Drownyard , Phyrexian Tower , Polluted Delta , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , and Volrath's Stronghold . If you have a way of making a proxy I'd also recommend Underground Sea because this card is ridiculously expensive. Then equalize your basic lands a bit more with 13-14 swamps and 7-8 islands.
Sorceries/Instants: My recommendation is remove all of your instants and sorceries with the exception of From Under the Floorboards , Syphon Flesh , Army of the Damned and Zombie Apocalypse . Now simply replace them with Restless Dreams , Mind Bomb and Careful Study so you have more discard outlets.
Artifacts/Mana Dorks: Most of your artifacts and mana dorks are good but could use some tuning. My recommendation is to swap Dimir Locket with Dimir Signet . Swap Prismatic Lens with Arcane Signet . Swap Star Compass with Commander's Sphere . Swap Charcoal Diamond with Darksteel Ingot . Then as an alternate win condition, you can toss in a Mindcrank and Strionic Resonator to mill your opponents as they take damage and then allowing you to double Scarab Gods ability.
Enchantments: You're missing out on some amazing potential with enchantments. Keep all of the ones you have but think about replacing Monastery Siege with a Rhystic Study or The Immortal Sun . Now I'm just gonna list off a lot of enchantments for you that work wonders in this style of deck. Pick and choose which ones you want: Tortured Existence , Zombie Infestation , Curse of Disturbance , Phyrexian Arena , Grave Pact , No Mercy , Dictate of Erebos , Liliana's Mastery , Open the Graves , Rooftop Storm <-- this one is a must have. Wound Reflection and finally Grave Betrayal . Your Endless Ranks of the Dead is new to me btw and I'll definitely be adding that one into my Scarab God deck. That thing is nuts.
Lastly your Maybeboard, the only cards I'd recommend putting in is Torment of Hailfire and Grave Titan . The rest are either unnecessary or do more harm than good. Though if you do want a planeswalker I'd highly recommend Liliana, Untouched By Death . She synergizes with the deck extremely well, especially if you have Rooftop Storm on the battlefield because now you can just recast everything from your graveyard for free.

Fuck all that shiz. We're throwing out the old plan and starting from scratch. We're saying fuck the mill main plan and making it a sub plan now.
REMOVE: Worry Beads
From Under the Floorboards - I think we can make more efficient zombies than this tbh.
and add any eldrazi you may have that causes you to shuffle your graveyard back into your LIBRARY

Sorry for the suggestion bomb.

Things to remove and why:
Worry Beads - too slow Endless ranks of the dead- dead if you don't have other zombies out
From Under the Floorboards - no way to activate madness which is what makes it good
Unbreathing Horde - you can keep if you want, but it only helps if you self mill and you just don't have that many creatures
Dark Salvation - keep it only if you can fix your mana generation issues. If you can consistently get 10+ mana a game then keep it.
Exsanguinate - it's just a worse Torment of hailfire, and again you don't generate 20+ mana consistently.
Butcher of Malakir - Costs too much mana, and when you need to wipe the board you have boardwipes to do that anyways.
Things to add:
Altar of Dementia swap that one out for Ashnod's, it's better in this deck
Grindclock , it's slow but it gets a lot better with Unwinding clock, and if you can land it early it'll do some serious work over the course of a game.
Helm of Obedience is a pricey card but definitely would do work here
Millstone if you took that one out

Joe_Ken_ hey, thanks for the suggestion. I honestly never saw that card before. It synergizes quite amazingly with the commander. However i think it has to compete the spot with From Under the Floorboards as the sacrifice fodder generator card
Angel of Invention On the upside, it reusable thanks to Alesha, but the downside is that it requires Alesha to be attacking in order to cheat her cost. Creates 3 bodies (2 because one is probably dies during combat)
From Under the Floorboards On the upside, it has higher power ceiling and gain me life (it's important because of Bolas's Citadel ), may creates more than 3 bodies if the madness triggered. But the downside is that Alesha can't cheat it and you always have to pay mana to cast it.
For now, I think i go for From Under the Floorboards for the potential higher power ceiling value. Also, it's cheaper than Angel of Invention . I'll put her in the Maybeboard, (that lifelink got my attention)
However, thanks for the suggestions. I appreciate that a lot.

This is a classic Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar deck. The ultimate goal is to have one of the following: Zulaport Cutthroat , Wayward Servant , Plague Belcher , Diregraf Captain , Corpse Knight ; alongside the Gravecrawler constantly going back and forth.
There are some cards that allow this combo without Phyrexian Altar . Mikaeus, the Unhallowed can combo with Putrid Goblin . Both can also double sacrifice effects if they are alone for value without combo- ing off. Rooftop Storm can replace Phyrexian Altar or unlock Relentless Dead to replace Gravecrawler .
With a commander like Varina, Lich Queen , with a strong Draw/discard effect, we need cards to discard. Cards that can make incredible value for Windfall + Whispering Madness + Memory Jar while refilling our hand and filling the graveyard. From Under the Floorboards , Waste Not (for opponents), Reanimate , Stitch Together .

Midnight Banshee seems like it might be a good card for him. Gives good synergy with his -1/-1 counter theme, and makes sure those counters are on your opponent's creatures when you do want to proliferate.
Also From Under the Floorboards might be worth considering as it's a good cards to discard. Not sure how good it is for Yawgmoth, but it's a game ending card in my Lord Windgrace deck because it's easy to madness.
Library of Leng , lastly, might be worth including for him too since you can discard cards for proliferation to the top of your library, then use his other ability to put them right back to your hand.
