chaosumbreon87, Unfortunately Food Chain doesn't work too well with Derevi. The activated ability to put her into play from the command zone isn't casting.

If you went with the normal Misthollow Griffin/Eternal Scourge combo you could get infinite untaps and potentially use a noncreature outlet to win the game with, but then you're essentially playing Tazri Food Chain without access to Black. It also becomes a 3 card combo instead of a 2 card one... I don't think it's worth it.

Your deck seems specifically tuned to your meta so I am not sure how much my suggestions will help, but here are some things that you might consider.

Including Misthollow Griffin as an additional Eternal Scourge.

Personally I feel that Rhystic Study is superior to Mystic Remora. You avoid cumulative upkeep cost, which for a controlling deck such as this seems important, and Rhystic Study triggers off all spells your opponents cast, not just non-creature spells.

I am not sure about your meta, but including Glacial Chasm to help stall until you assemble combo pieces is an option.

Lastly, I'd suggest a board wipe or two. I think Cyclonic Rift would be great here.

Setting up a good Intuition is an art, similar to the way that setting up a good Fact or Fiction is. "Which card do I need? What card does my opponent think I need? What will my opponent prioritize?"

The nice thing about Intuition in this deck (as I see it) is that the win condition is based on the interaction between Eternal Scourge or Misthollow Griffin and Food Chain, and you have two functionally identical tutors to search them out in Manipulate Fate and Foresight. That means you can search out those two and Noxious Revival to ensure that you get it. Or just go directly for the two creatures and Noxious Revival, depending upon the situation. That's my take on it.

Also, if someone is about to win, you can intuition for an answer and ask another player to give you that answer. It's a quite versatile card, I find.

I am VERY impressed with all of the suggestions! The problem that I am facing with this deck is how many ways there is to build and play it!!! Although you can easily cut most/all zombie lords and just focus everything on The Scarab God's ability, that is not what I am trying to do in this build quite yet. This list can win without him in play, with a horde of zombies. However, this does not mean other versions of this deck are not viable! I am just giving this tribal thing a try before I make any crazy changes.

mikeintosh: I ended up cutting Overseer of the Damned... it is pretty cool card, but 7cmc was often to much. There is better removal for less. It is a really cool card though.

Paradox Haze just wins, hands down. After much playtest, it is here to stay.I am almost never upset with drawing it, and a card that says "remove me now, or I win" is a dang good card if you ask me!

LittleBlueHero - Thank you for the comment and the upvote! Misthollow Griffin is great in this deck, but falls under that category of non-tribal cards that this list is not quite ready to play.

Odysseus_97, mikeintosh and man1ac: Thank you SO much for the well throughout comments to my update! I weighed them heavily as I did this update! You guys are truly amazing for taking the time out to write so much on this list! What are your thoughts on my final changes???

TDK: You are totally right about Phyrexian Altar. Once I get a copy, and find room for it, it will be in here!

I only made it through about half the comments so sorry if its been mentioned but would a card like Misthollow Griffin be fun here?

When you use the gods ability on it you get a 4/4 flier for four and can then cast the card again from exile.... nearly never ending 4/4 and 3/3 fliers doesn't seem too bad?

Ditto on Kabira Evangel and Hero of Goma Fada -- the protection/indestruct will be useful in many scenarios if you can flicker at instant speed. I personally would cut the Eldrazi, since that's a flavor fail for an Ally tribal, but considering you're running Food Chain...I guess that's okay. Don't forget Misthollow Griffin for Food Chain Tazri. I would also cut Planar Bridge, since it's a HUGE mana investment for very little payoff when your commander is literally a tutor on a stick.

Love the deck, though! Good luck foiling it out.
