The Scarab God
Legendary Creature — God
At the beginning of your upkeep, each opponent loses X life and you scry X, where X is the number of Zombies you control.
: Exile target creature card from a graveyard. Create a token that's a copy of it, except it's a 4/4 black Zombie.
When The Scarab God is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, return it to its owner's hand at the beginning of the next end step.

The Scarab God Discussion

Thanks for the suggestions saluma, thanks for the suggestions, I think I will probably go for Rune Snag/ Mana Leak, as the deck is already hard enough for me to put together, thinking more so remove the spectres and 1 terminate though, as the nighthawks are just too good in combat and once The Scarab God lands, a 4/4 flying, deathtouch, lifelink for 4 is a pretty brutal play when you're both top decking! If I can get the money for the searches, then I think I would replace 2 serum visions over the Opts, as while they are less powerful, I can use them on the opponents end step if I have mana left, having held some up for a counter or removal.

I would recommend playing Shriekmaw over Ravenous Chupacabra. It does something past turn 2, instead of past turn 4, which is very relevant, as it can stop things like Baral, Chief of Compliance storm, or Devoted Druid + Vizier of Remedies and the like from murdering you on turn 3 after they untapped with their creatures. Plus it has a relevant evasion on its body when reanimated.

Tidehollow Sculler and Wayward Servant are really the only benefits you're getting from White. When I saw Varina I thought I might look into splashing White into my U/B Zombie deck, but I honestly don't think it's worth it. I'd rather just stick with The Scarab God to get my combos out more easily.

Overseer of the Damned is good for more zombies. also i'd go with Coat of Arms instead of Herald's Horn beyond that it's pretty good! I also have something like this except with The Scarab God at the helm , but it's still effective with Gisa and Geralf leading

If you have Rekindling Phoenix I'd run that mainboard. Maybe move Banefire side board. To combat control decks you will need cards like Vine Mare and Carnage Tyrant. Also planeswalkers can help in grindy matches so Vivien Reid will probably be your best bet since she's not rotating. I'd suggest Lifecrafter's Bestiary in the side as a decent draw engine to keep you from running out of gas in control match ups, but its rotating soon. I also find Sorcerous Spyglass a powerhouse card against control decks that use planeswalkers or The Scarab God as a win con. Sorcerous Spyglass comes out earlier than they are prepared to deal with and they have very few answers to it once it's out.
Anyways your deck looks to have a nice start and I will definitely be upvoting. I've been looking around for a decent Sarkhan's Unsealing centered strategy. The deck seems like it will be in a really good spot post rotation. I think the best way to go would be to run Carnage Tyrant, Rekindling Phoenix, Vine Mare, and Ghalta, Primal Hunger mainboard. It would be pretty tough for most deck to shut all those threats down consistently every game.

I would love some feedback on how I might improve this deck. I thought about including Eternal Scourge to combo with The Scarab God

I see what you did here DrkNinja. It's very similar to my deck though I think your deck budget blows mine out of the water without trying. Most of my "expensive" cards came from a deck I had constructed previously centered around "The Scarab God".
Some simple adds that won't cost ya to increase your chance at win through mill are Jace's Erasure and Psychic Corrosion. These will help if you happen not to get Altar of the Brood or Sphinx's Tutelage. These next cards are a bit more pricey but will help you maintain a hand card advantage since Varina, Lich Queen only filters and doesn't offer help with your hand thinning out. I recommend Kindred Discovery and Vanquisher's Banner. These will help you not run out of cards and also synergize very well with Sphinx's Tutelage, Jace's Erasure, and Psychic Corrosion.
In my deck, I avoided the mill strat because the deck was designed to be efficient in its win cons and its aggro. While I do agree that mill is a hilarious way to win, I feel in EDH it is too slow to be considered efficient. I also wanted to avoid fueling anyone's graveyard with re-accruable spells since I do play with players who favor reanimation and flashback in their deck strats. Thanks for the comment though and wish you the best of luck!

guess i'll get the ball rollin here. which is actually kinda ironic considering i disagree with you about standard being a "dumpster fire". vehicle and energy decks are fine imo, so i see no reason to hate on Aether Revolt. disliking the Amonkhet block and The Scarab God would be a bit more understandable. but still not a dumpster fire.
personally, i've had the most standard fun with ixalan and dinos. i run a RGB midrange build.
