As far as proliferating goes, Thrummingbird can do some legwork in building you up, though it doesn't fall in your zombie theme, though The Scarab God could fix that, along with any other non-zombies like Viral Drake . And on that note, The Scorpion God could give you some solid draw and aid removal since you're already spreading -1/-1's with infect. Don't know if those fall too far out of theme for you (I appreciate thematic decks), but could be solid choices.

I've been having a hard time figuring out a new deck to build, so I decided to mash together a few ideas. I think there's something here, but it needs quite a bit of changes.
I started with a Mardu Aristocrats deck, but didn't quite like that. In parallel, I tried -1/-1 counters and didn't quite like that. So, I'm trying to use the tokens made from the -1/-1 engines ( Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons , Flourishing Defenses , and a few others) to fuel my aristocrats.
It's pretty lackluster right now, so what do you think? Is this just a pile of cards or could it be a deck?

For some background, my group is pretty casual. Nothing infinite, and for now I want to stick with cards <$5 until I figure out if this will work. Hapatra, Teysa Karlov , and The Scorpion God were among the cards I wanted to play most, which is what led to me 4 colors.

The Scorpion God is a great card to pair with Thantis. You make combat tricky for your opponents and draw cards off of Thantis' ability.

I've been considering making one lately because I recently made a Karlov deck and I put em in the 99. Whenever I play Krav he's been such a power house and thats in a deck that's not designed around breaking him. In an arostocrats deck the ammount of card draw should be very impressive and akin to having a skullclamp in the zone.
Now honestly idk where he should be. Maybe 3-3.5? But the last tier seems too low to me. Like hes def not 1 or 2 worthy. Probably not not even 2.5 but a draw engine this decent deserves better than to be lumped in with terrible draw engines like The Scorpion God and Lu Xun, Scholar General . Hes at least as good as Sram imo, who is currently 3.
Regna sux lol but she's worth playing just to add white to the deck and who knows, you might find the odd time to cast her.

Heyo! I really like the idea of this deck. It seems like a super fun way to play!
I question the addition of The Scorpion God as its 8 mana to just get 1 -1/-1 counter on something and I guess I can see it if you get him down and have your pillow fort up it is a mana sink. However, you already have a Xantcha, Sleeper Agent as a mana sink, along with if you have all your pillow fort down you are going to have little mana to actually cast unless you let them fall off. Since you're average cmc is 3.84 right now, you aren't going to be running off in the races. It'll be a slower game and I think taking out Obelisk Spider would allow you to pop in Rakdos and Assualt suit. The -1/-1 isn't bad, but it is much much better when there is more support for them. Plus the rakdos assualt suit is essentially another wincon whereas Scorp God and Spider are just some value and do not make you win.
Hope this helps!

There is a surprising amount of counter generation here, I like it.
