Creature — Zombie Horror
Skulk (This creature can't be blocked by creatures with greater power.)
At the beginning of your upkeep, you may discard all the cards in your hand. If you do, draw that many cards.
Forgotten Creation Discussion

Actually, Forgotten Creation might be one of the better self-wheels. I'd cut Molten Psyche , Whirlpool Rider , and Fateful Showdown . Maybe one more--you have a ton of wheel effects that don't redraw up to seven cards and things like Arjun, Mind Moil, and Teferi's Gigglebox are the stand-outs. You still want some though.
Burn at the Stake is great but a little bit win-more so it's a potential cut. Lower on the cut list, to be sure.

As far as cuts, the cards I have my eye on are Forgotten Creation , Izzet Keyrune , Sphinx's Tutelage , Deepfathom Skulker , Favorable Winds , Gravitational Shift , AEther Membrane , Mask of Avacyn , Faithless Looting , and perhaps two or three of the "discard hand, draw that many"--particularly expensive ones. I like Jace's Archivist for being repeatable.

With regard to cuts: If you want to run Zombie Master and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , you don't need Zombie Trailblazer anymore. Library of Leng is an interesting card, but I'm not sure it's good enough to merit an include; I'm assuming that it's meant to interact with Varina, Lich Queen 's looting ability. I just think there're better things you can do with the slot -- same goes for Desecrated Tomb . Their impact is marginal most of the time, and inserting more card draw or artifact ramp seems likely to be better.
I'm guessing Call to the Netherworld is meant to buy back cards while interacting with Varina's ability. I think running a to battlefield reanimation spell, like Reanimate or Animate Dead , would be simply better. Gravedigger and Eternal Taskmaster are similar cards I'd cut.
Ertai, the Corrupted is a card I think many people overrate. Five-mana is a very high cost, and cards like Daring Apprentice and Ertai, the Corrupted are worse than regular Counterspell s because your opponents know to play around the counter effect.
If you're running Phyrexian Altar , I'm not sure Ashnod's Altar is necessary. Including tutors like Demonic Tutor makes redundancy less important; similarly, including tutors would allow you to run just one Merciless Eviction or Austere Command effect rather than both.

Hey there! I like how you’re running Gisa and Geralf as your commander. Two zombies I think will work well for you are Graveborn Muse and Forgotten Creation . My zombie deck runs both of the cards I suggested to you but I run Grimgrin, Corpse-Born as the commander. If you have any suggestions for me I’m all ears. I tend not to lean too token-focused just any and all zombies.

Forgotten Creation is clever self mill here!
Have you considered flickering Toothy? Toothy would come back in time to see you draw all the cards, which would put the same number of counters back on! Copying has a similar effect, but OG Toothy goes back to the zone due to legend rule.

Hey all! I am back and I am continuing learning how to build my deck. I will keep it short as I am getting ready for bed. I'm the guy who built this as my first non-precon deck ever. I have gotten extremely strong and helpful feedback from here so I wanted to come back and get some more advice on what creatures or other spells to cut. I am going for zombie graveyard play and mill to play with graveyards for now. Please help educate me on how to know what to swap, cut, etc when replacing spells in an existing deck. I don't know what cuts to make for creatures, what counters to run, or what my wincons are even... because right now I do not even have any that I am aware of.
The build: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/where-is-your-scarab-god/
Incoming cards are as follows:
I was going to cut Mystic Remora as when I've played it I have not been to pay the upkeep and play what I needed to out of my hand. This is [u]not[/u] a final cut but I just have not had luck with it. [b]I also was NOT scrying and doing the life loss with Scarab God, I missed all my triggers and felt so dumb after[/b]. But I am not being hard on myself, it is just something I have to get used to and get into the habit of, it is part of Commander anyway! So what I was going to try was Graveborn Muse and Forgotten Creation .
I am going to cut some counterspells too, this list is as of a day or so ago but today I placed the orders for the new cards. I just don't know what to cut and what to run at this point, it seems like I have a TON of firepower now compared to when I first pieced it together just two weeks ago and now the deck has taken on a life of its own. I tried to work on some token generation too.
Also, I have at LEAST $60+ I want to blow at Star City this weekend, any recommendations on heavy hitters I can pick up while I'm saving on cards anyway?? I am thinking maybe Grave Pact and Rise of the Dark Realms . Pickups at Star City possibly include Rot Hulk and Reality Shift .
I am new and am abandoning hope because I don't know what to do and I don't want to waste time or money on stuff when I am not getting the answers I need and no one really wants to take the time to help me. Then I get frustrated because I put so much time into this build and I don't know things due to lack of experience.

There's a couple more flicker effects that I don't see in your main or sideboard like Nephalia Smuggler / Displace / Illusionist's Stratagem / Deadeye Navigator and weird ones like Baral's Expertise and Supplant Form . And creatures that counter spells work well with blink like Frilled Mystic / Mystic Snake / Draining Whelk .
There's also Everflowing Chalice / Astral Cornucopia that work with Pir, and Thrummingbird / Skyship Plunderer that are basically magpies (with Toothy) and help the counter themes. Tel-Jilad Stylus / Crystal Shard / Lord of the Unreal helps with protecting Toothy. What do you think about Whirlpool Drake / Whirlpool Rider / Forgotten Creation / Teferi's Puzzle Box as an additional Alhammarret's Archive? Turbulent Dreams is a nice additional Cyclonic Rift. And why do you run no planeswalkers like Kiora, the Crashing Wave / Nissa, Vital Force / Garruk, Primal Hunter (they enter the battlefield and activate with an additional counter with Pir.
What do you think of Empyrial Plate / Thassa, God of the Sea / Words of Wilding / Sphinx's Tutelage / Psychic Corrosion / Key to the City as an extra wincon? I have my own deck (here)[http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/22-07-18-pirtoothy/?cat=type&sort=cost] and I'm considering if these are suboptimal.
