Ghoulcaller Gisa Discussion

Could be a bit stax-y for your fun requirement but it's not exactly easy to pull off and Descent is super flavourful.

Really like what you're doing here by repeatedly killing creatures and turning them into tokens. Also a big fan of Ogre Battledriver and Primal Forcemage effects, which I've used to great effect in many decks. Ghoulcaller Gisa is great to convert the pumped tokens into many pumped Zombies (even more so with Coat of Arms). Token doublers like Parallel Lives and Doubling Season also help, especially when you stack the token generation, e.g. Emrakul's Evangel into Descent of the Dragons turns each land into 4 Dragons. They also give infinite ETBs with Tooth and Claw which deals infinite damage with Pandemonium or makes infinite beasts with Fresh Meat or 2 token-doubling enchantments.
If animating lands is the main game plan, you might want a couple more land ramp spells like Skyshroud Claim and Harvest Season (which doubles your lands when you tap all your lands then animate them). World Shaper is great to bring back your lands, and also contributes to the creature count.

One card I've found to be really powerful in my Inalla deck, and makes good work of the token wizards you're producing is Ghoulcaller Gisa you can sac the tokens to her to make 2/2 zombie tokens, always handy to throw in front of enemy threats, and she has the wizard subtype which plays into any other relevant effects.

Scarab god is my first commander brew too! I'm still working on it but I have a few pointers for yours:
You have many random zombie cards that don't seem to follow a strategy. You have some zombie lords like Undead Warchief which is great, but then you have so many crappy common cards like Cursed Minotaur. They also don't really help with a scarab god strategy. I've focused on two aspects for the scarab god: creating a lot of zombies (aka tokens) and enter the battlefield effects. That way I can bring them back with the scarab god's eternelize ability and have the enter the battlefield effect happen again. Ravenous Chupacabra Is a great choice for that, because you can play it, get it killed, and play it again. And because the scarab god's ability is instant speed you can bring it back on your opponent's turn!
A must-have for a scarab god deck is Grave Titan. This hits every nail on the head: It enters the battlefield effect can be repeated AND it nets you zombies. It's one of the best zombie cards possible.
Get rid of Coffin Purge, that doesn't make any sense for a zombie deck like this. You want cards in the graveyard.
You need more board wipes, as in cards that destroy everything. When you play against 3 other people a board wipe can save the game AND get cards in the graveyard, which you need.
You should really find some cards that can sacrifice other cards to get them into your graveyard. Ghoulcaller Gisa and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born are great for getting cards in your graveyard and getting value from it!
Think of a true way to win the game for this deck. Right now it's get a lot of cards on the battlefield, with no sure-fire way of doing so. If you make a zombie tribal, put cards like Vanquisher's Banner to get value from casting zombies. If you do enter the battlefield effect cards use things that get cards into the graveyard. Get cards that make you discard and/or mill either your opponent or yourself to get value from the graveyard. There are so many good ways to play this commander, just choose one!
My deck that I'm building is right here: What I'm Using RN. It's not great and not done, but it has cards that show what I mean for a deck like this. Good luck!
P.S. Check out EDHREC's suggested cards for the scarab god, maybe you can get some ideas

Seems pretty cool. What about throwing in Ghoulcaller Gisa? If you find yourself with a big Krav, the Unredeemed you could sac him for a ton of zombies. Then throw him back out there and sac a ton of zombies, or enjoy your shiny new horde.

You should consider Phyrexian Dreadnought
12 power, 1 mana, needs to be sacrificed as it enters the battlefield, but that is a triggered effect, so while that is on the stack you can sacrifice it to Ghoulcaller Gisa for 12 zombies, 1 card, 2 mana.
It's a bit wonky, but the Phyrexian Dreadnought is a 12/12 trampler in the regular scenario where you play it and sacrifice 6 2/2 zombie tokens.
