Rooftop Storm could be useful if you don’t have access to your commander?

I would drop a few creatures to focus more on other cards that have synergy with zombies and have some cards that have interaction.
Rooftop Storm is a good enchantment since it will make all you zombie creatures cost so you can focus more on dumping mana into Scarab god.
Whip of Erebos is a good card for your creature focused deck since it will keep your life total at a nice spot
Endless ranks of the damned is pretty much a card that will build you a massive army of zombie if it’s not dealt with quickly.
You can also use Altar of Dementia to sacrifice your board in response to a board wipe to fill your opponent’s graveyards to give Scarab god more targets.

Thank you for your suggestions NV_1980! I really dig your deck, especially since this deck started out as a Gisa and Geralf deck too and came a long way from there by using The Scarab God for quite a while and now making a jump into the Grixis pool. I used to run the altars but I found out early, I don't want to run most of the infinite combos because I neither have efficient outlets for infinite mana nor did I want to win with infinite tokens since they just get wiped during the next turns before I am able to swing with them.
I could still go for infinite drain with Rooftop Storm Gravecrawler Carrion Feeder and Diregraf Captain, but my main gameplan was always to swing with my army (since I already got plenty of combostuff in my other decks) and Marchesa, the Black Rose provides haste and inbuilt recursion and thus seemed fitting and worth a try to me :)

Hey, the small changes you've made are an improvement, good job. You can still improve your deck a lot more with a deck budget of $600+.
Rooftop Storm, Endless Ranks of the Dead and Diregraf Colossus are good Zombie cards, but you're relying too much on Adaptation/Conspiracy for them to function in your deck. If you don't have an Adaptation effect on the battlefield then Endless/Colossus are not going to create enough tokens to matter and Rooftop won't do anything for a six drop.
The manabase can use some improvements, there's no Command Tower.
- Command Tower > Transguild Promenade
- Exotic Orchard > Dimir Guildgate
- Llanowar Wastes > Submerged Boneyard
- Yavimaya Coast > Jwar Isle Refuge
- Emergence Zone > Cabal Stronghold
- Sunken Hollow > Temple of Deceit
- Opal Palace > Mortuary Mire
By sacing Emergence Zone you can assemble combos at instant speed, play cards from your graveyard with Muldrotha at instant speed and play Zone again on your turn from your graveyard with Muldrotha. With enough mana, Zone and Muldrotha you could play the entire game at instant speed. This is just the beginning of budget upgrades you could make to the manabase, these are good lands for their prices especially Command Tower.
Consider Sakura-Tribe Elder? Two drop land ramp who sacs itself, interaction with Muldrotha. Signets can help with color fixing as well as be ramp and they're two drops: Arcane Signet, Golgari Signet, Dimir Signet, Simic Signet. My advice is cut several high CMC cards for more low CMC ramp. You're added more ramp which is good, but consider more? Ramp first helps to play Muldrotha faster, then it helps to cast more permanents from your graveyard. Muldrotha is a very mana hungry Commander since you need mana to cast as many types of permanents as you can from your graveyard. The combos here are very mana expensive which ramp can also help with.

It is solid in most metas. I don't know if there are any interactions that threaten to consistently win turn 5 or sooner so not cEDH but definitely solid enough for other groups. I would use at least Dimir colors so you get Rooftop Storm but mono black is good too. Either Grixis or Esper are good color combos. I don't know if there is any reason to do more than 3 colors. At a certain point you just start to spread yourself thin for marginal power increases.

IDK how competitive it would be for your group, but I had a strong Gisa/Geralf deck way back when. It was strong and consistent enough that I bagged it. It's real strength was through the utilization of Rooftop Storm, and abusing Gray Merchant of Asphodel.
If you want me to post the deck I will so you can peep it, but don't wanna spam your thread.

Hey, interesting concept, but your deck is kind of all over the place. All the combos are with Conspiracy, but Arcane Adaptation which is in the sideboard is the same effect, but a better card because less CMC and easier casting cost. I think you want Adaptation as a backup Conspiracy effect.
The game plan is to get an Adaptation effect to make all your creatures Zombies. Consider expanding on the current Zombie theme of The Scarab God, Door of Destinies, Lich Lord of Unx, Undead Alchemist, Gleaming Overseer, Liliana, Death's Majesty and Rooftop Storm? More Zombies that way you can have a more functioning deck without an Adaption effect. Play more Zombies and keep some good nonZombie creatures who then become better with an Adaption effect. Take more advantage of Doubling Season by expanding on the Zombie token theme?
Zombies to consider adding:
- Cryptbreaker: tokens.
- Grave Titan: tokens.
- Endless Ranks of the Dead: tokens.
- Ghoulcaller Gisa: tokens.
- Dreadhorde Invasion: tokens.
- Sidisi, Brood Tyrant: tokens.
- Cemetery Reaper: tokens.
- Sidisi, Undead Vizier
- Diregraf Captain
- Fleshbag Marauder
- Midnight Reaper
- Undead Augur
I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.
