I like the ability to just cantrip the Scarab Feast away when graveyard hate isn't relevant, but Soul-Guide Lantern fits that bill. Appreciate it!

I'm not too sure about Scarab Feast. As far as graveyard hate goes, I think you'll be a lot better off with Relic of Progenitus, Soul-Guide Lantern, Scrabbling Claws, Scavenger Grounds or my personal favorite, Bojuka Bog. Also, while I fully understand the allure of playing Tetzimoc, Horobi, Death's Wail has a similar strategy but is a lot smoother IMO.

The cycling sub-theme seems like a lot more investments than payoffs.

Gempalm Polluter feels like a nice zombie-themed include. Same for Lurching Rotbeast and Moaning Wall. Undead Gladiator also synergizes with your Bone Miser.

Running removal options like Clear/Forsake the Worldly, Expunge,Cast Out and Akroma's Vengeance might be useful. Your deck looks defensive, so maybe Choking Tethers or Djeru's Renunciation?

To bolster your control, maybe Compelling Argument or Countervailing Winds?

Scarab Feast and Rapid Decay answer decks that want you to mill them or use their own graveyards. Unearth gets low-cost zombies or Phantasmal Image back.

Maybe Abandoned Sarcophagus, while you're at it? And if you're cycling so much, throw in Fluctuator.

Hey, yes Insidious Dreams is an underrated, underplayed, tutor and it's an instant. If you have or can get Yawgmoth's Will then definitely add it. I didn't see that you're playing Zombie Infestation and you're right it can make a Zombie for Gravecrawler as long as you have two cards to discard which can be faster than Dreadhorde Invasion. I'm honestly not a fan of Infestation, but if it's working for you then great.

Other ways to consider to make your deck more competitive is more speed. Lower the avg. CMC with more one drops; cards that make mana and/or cards that can draw. One drops that draw can draw you cards faster because you don't have to pay mana for them as well as put more counters on Krrik faster. One drops that make mana are helpful to make mana for colorless mana costs of cards to assemble combos faster.

Rain of Filth and Bubbling Muck are powerful when playing a lot of Swamps. Culling the Weak and Sacrifice is good with Krrik or other creatures. All four of these cards can be particularly helpful when you're trying to assemble Aetherflux + Citadel which needs seven colorless mana. Sacrifice makes seven mana by sacing Krrik. Krrik is not needed after you assemble this combo and Sacrifice is an instant. You can pay Phyrexian mana for Citadel, pay Phyrexian mana for Sacrifice, sac Krrik to then make mana to pay for the rest of the combo.

Black one drops that draw to consider (I'm honestly only a fan of Wisps): Aphotic Wisps, Cremate, Scarab Feast, Fade from Memory. Cycling can be paid for with Phyrexian mana.

For your current deck there's less reasons to play so many high CMC creatures because you're winning with combo. Vilis, Razaketh, Pontiff, Sidisi and Gray are the best here. Instead of playing others, you could replace them lower CMC cards or other tutors: Mastermind's Acquisition and Dark Petition which can find important combo pieces. Tutors taking up high CMC card spots can better advance your game plan of winning with a combo rather than just having a big creature on the battlefield.

Yeah, the creatures never leave the side, they are there exclusively for Vivien to grab lol. The Price of betrayal is nice because it can kill an early Stonecoil that other things can't, it can substantially slow energy, and it can kill most walkers, all for the low price of B! The reason I tried putting Scarab Feast in the side instead of stronger cards is because grave strategies can (and most likely will automatically) side against the artifact hate, so being able to exile the cards as they try to use them just seems like it could catch people off guard and throw off strategies a bit. I could maybe justify cutting the Inspiring Call and Mistcutter Hydra for Return to Nature though, I honestly hadn't considered artifact/enchantment based removal much before now so thank you for putting that on my radar!

So in order to win on the same turn as Doomsday, you'll want to make sure you have a card like Night's Whisper , Sign in Blood , Aphotic Wisps , Cremate or Scarab Feast to draw a card on demand. Other cards that Cycle can also do the trick.
