Honor the God-Pharaoh Discussion

The main issue I see with this deck is that its slow. With many shocklands that enter tapped, casting bigger spells quicker is harder. I know you're on a budget, but I'd still recommend Blood Crypt , Steam Vents , and Watery Grave over your Guildgates.

Use Honor the God-Pharaoh for even more amass plus card draw. Bolt Bend can protect your army from removal and Chainwhip Cyclops can pave the way for your army.

Flux Channeler helps boost your zombie army even more, and Relentless Advance can do it in a hurry. Stealth Mission can help you hit the opponent for a lot of damage with a powered up Zombie Army.

Vizier of the Scorpion amasses and gives your zombie army deathtouch. Unlikely Aid can protect it from removal, and Aid the Fallen can return an amass creature from your graveyard, allowing you to do it again.

Enral Usually as you hit your 3rd land you're fine, this is sort of the critical landdrop, if you're not drawing a rock.

As soon as you got the 3rd you can start playing cards like Painful Truths , Read the Bones or Honor the God-Pharaoh and a few are even cheaper as Cathartic Reunion , Faithless Looting and Night's Whisper . You can also use tutors like Demonic Tutor for a land like Ancient Tomb and you're good for 2 turns, or if you're just desperate for a landdrop. These cantrip, tutor and carddrawspells provide that you can keep on playing a land each turn.

Checkout my custom ordering, the cards mentioned are listed at ★ FILTER ★, ★ CARD-ADVANTAGE ★ and ★ TUTOR ★. All cards providing ritual like boosts are listed at ★ RITUALS ★. Some of these are reusable, some not. Adding up to a total of about 35 cards i can make sure i can follow the plan.

I actually think Angrath would help you more consistently than Ugin, so I'd cut him personally. Unless I'm missing something, Ugin doesn't really have the impact he should for 6 mana especially since you don't benefit from his static ability making colorless cheaper. I'm also not a huge fan of Honor the God-Pharaoh because it makes you discard and none of your cards want to be in the graveyard and if it gets countered, it hurts bad (plus sorcery speed makes it even less appealing). Overall, play testing will be the only true way to know what works best, but I hope this helps. Good luck!

I love this deck but I have a few changes I might recommend. The red mana base needs 1 more for consistency with Widespread Brutality , the black mana needs 1 more for Nikky B and based on Karsten’s article you have 1 extra for the blue mana so I might take out a Swamp and a Sulfur Falls for 2 Rakdos Guildgate . 4 Bolas seems like a bit much and Aggro keeps running me over. I took out 1 for another Dreadhorde Invasion from the sideboard. I also removed 2 Chemister's Insight in favor of adding 2 Honor the God-Pharaoh to help the amass plan or at least put up a blocker while lowering the CMC a little. With that you have a little more room in the SB so I removed 1 Invade the City in favor of adding 2 Ashiok, Dream Render to screw up any God Eternal or Izzet plans. Can also stop Search for Azcanta  Flip from flipping. Just my suggestions and I haven’t gotten to test them much but wanted to at least try and contribute since I love this deck idea.
