I love this build! +1 I think Signal Pest is a good 1 of for this deck for a bit more damage as well as the New Amonkhet card Throne of the God-Pharaoh as everyone in the commander pod takes that damage. Hope this helps.

My buddy and I took 3rd at 2HG today. He played control and I built to bring the beats and a little control myself. Two very fast decks that had a lot of versatility.
It was awesome sharing the card pool. First time I've ever done that. We had playsets and 3-ofs for a lot of really good cards. What was weird was only playing one game against each team rather than best 2/3.
The first game we went toe to toe for a long time, but they didn't have the removal package that we did and couldn't keep up.
Second game we crushed them. Absolute blowout.
Third game was against the two shop owners. One playing rakdos colors had Throne of the God-Pharaoh by turn two and it destroyed us in no time. Two life lost per tapped creature was disgusting.
Last game was like the first. Went toe to toe but this time we couldn't keep up.
Landed in third place behind the two decks that beat us so I can't complain. 2HG is fun. 10/10 would recommend

It doesn't look amazing on paper, but I got a chance to actually play with one in prerelease and it was actually pretty handy.

I do have Cryptbreaker in the maybe listings but I don't know about him. I prefer a free discard outlet, even a non-zombie one at that, to one that costs 1B just to activate. I understand that cost is payed for the 2/2 Zombie token you get but when I'm discarding and playing for Madness From Under the Floorboards i want to conserve the two mana for the X cost and not spend it on getting another token from Cryptbreaker.
I do like that it's a Zombie creature and cheap CMC so it comes out to play early.
I love that in this deck 3 Zombies is a drawn card. The life loss from that would balance out with the life gained from other card effects.
I also how it requires you to tap it because that is another way besides Cryptolith Rite to tap creatures without attacking to trigger burn damage from Throne of the God-Pharaoh.
I might look to include it but what would you take out?

I don't think this set is playable heaven, as others have been.
Harsh Mentor is a big one and will be seeing a lot of testing. It will also probably wind up in the Vintage 5c humans deck.
Throne of the God-Pharaoh seem to have potential in an aggressive shell or as a finisher in some combo builds with a lot of dorks, like elves.
Glorious End seems interesting enough. Maybe some of the combo decks as a 3 mana take an extra turn spell.
As Foretold seems really interesting as a value engine for a control deck.
The cares about zombie cards open up WB and Esper zombies as sacrifice based aristocrat style builds which might push them to playability. Good drain and stuff. You also get the extra value from casting them which you can use to lock a board down before swinging in.
Vizier of Remedies might let you tweak coco or push the Redcap combo into Mardu as well, as you only need W R/B R/B not WW R/B R/B.
Forsake the Worldly is pretty good as well, I would be surprised if it didn't see a bit of play cause cycling is good and exile can be relevant.

- All the games were very grindy, and very close. They all came down to if your deck found Oblivion Strike or Soul-Scar Mage.
- Soul-Scar Mage was amazing in general, and MVP against the Gods.
- Early in the season (when I suspect lots of people will be trying out the Gods), you might consider Oblivion Strike #4 in sideboard vs. Aligned Hedron Network #3 (which whiffs against Oketra the True and Bontu the Glorified).
- Thanks for finding and pointing out Throne of the God-Pharaoh ... great card!
