Gleeock I agree that Zurzoth, Chaos Rider is great and overlooked and is actually my favorite devil..but the problem is he mono red (not a problem with me personally, i never agreed with wizards making devils rakdos in color and wish they stuck with mono-red) but unfortunately wizards did make devils rakdos so and some of the best devils (other than Zurzoth) are mono black like Stone-Throwing Devils, Asmodeus the Archfiend and Lorcan, Warlock Collector or are in rakdos colors like the new spoiled Mahadi, Emporium Master and Raphael, Fiendish Savior (which will be the go to commander for tribal now) and Mayhem Devil. Now they are great mono red devils to but unfortunately not enough to warrent a mono red build at this time (particularly the lack of good boss level mono red devils and decent low level devils)

Personally from a gameplay perspective I think any chaotic effect should be 7+ mana - they’re typically very big-risk-big-rewards effects, so they need to be costed at a point where they don’t mess with competitive play. So, from a design-perspective, i’m fine with Devils doing whatever chaotic nonsense they want at those higher cmc amounts.
As far as “realistic casting costs” go, I’m much more in favour of Devils maintaining their sacrifice-matters identity. I think Mayhem Devil is a great card and example of a Devil done well. Its effect is controllable, but also can incidentally really mess with what at opponent is doing.

Castigus how competitive are you wanting this deck? What kind of stuff does your local meta generally field?
As far as only using zombie creatures, i’d suggest you aim towards ensuring the creatures you run benefit the tribe, as opposed to forcing yourself to only running zombie creature types. As an example, my own tribal-zombie deck (here) wouldn’t function at-all without the help of Fury and Mayhem Devil. You’re always better-off ensuring your creatures function well together towards an end-goal, than restricting yourself to only using a certain creature-type for no real net-gain

One thing to note is that Juri, Master of the Revue isn’t modern legal.
Feels like you want a full playset of Mayhem Devil in here.

I quite like this brew. Sone thoughts:
You probably want to use more fetchlands for Mayhem Devil to profit from.
I would suggest ditching both Immortal Servitude and Rally the Ancestors. Firstly, ditching them means you can easily get away with running only 22 lands. Secondly, Rally is particularly bad as you have no easy sac outlet (Priest will be summoning-sick). I would say, 99% of the time, running Unearth will be much stronger for you. After that, i think you need more interaction/killspells, but if you’re desperate for additional recursion, Persist, Undying Evil, or Malakir Rebirth Flip are all better than Servitude/Rally in this deck.
As mentioned before, I think your deck needs more ways to interact with the opponents boardstate. The Sac & discard you have are good - but they all let the opponent choose what’s going. A few copies of Infernal Grasp, or a playset of Lightning Bolt, could help you in sticky situations

I think that Mayhem Devil is gaining more traction as a card that needs to be responded to. It hoses so many deck strategies and can really pile up damage in commander.
I was already building a commander deck for Grist, the Hunger Tide and will see how it works out.
