I actually really like Tazri, Beacon of Unity as a commander. 5 Color commander that costs 1 less for each creature in your party (first cast can be for 1 mana if you get a solid hand). Her activated ability can easily build your boardstate and get you to necessary combos, and she works super well in my dungeon crawling deck, letting me slap down several venture into the dungeon cards early.

I think I could swap in most 5 color commander options in place of Tazri, Beacon of Unity and be...ok. That said, I wouldn't do it. Its a party deck to the core.

Tazri, Beacon of Unity as a zombie deck is definitely doable. I was thinking about it when planning my Tazri deck. I'm not sure about the Egyptian theme though.

What does he care more about for this deck? That it can run 4-5 colours? Or for it to be Egyptian and Zombie themed?
If the latter matters more, he might like The Scarab God , though it's only two colours. There are some others from Amonkhet or Hour of Devastation that might interest him as well, most of the commanders are only one or two colours though.
4-5 colour commanders, none specifically revolve around Zombies, nor do any have an Egyptian aesthetic, but you could still get creative with the options that are there.
Morophon, the Boundless - popular for a lot of tribes, but kind of lackluster for Zombies IMHO which have a lot more better options, albeit with fewer colours.
Niv-Mizzet Reborn could be interesting, when built right he can provide some serious card draw, which could be a free graveyard dump if you get enough extra cards in hand to discard. Zombies are all about reanimation, so you could get clever with that. Zombies will mostly be in black, blue, and red, you could find use with green and white with other cards.
Similarly, Tazri, Beacon of Unity could be fun to build around. There are many Zombies that are also Warriors, Clerics, and Wizards. Not so many Rogues and Ally, but there's one of each that makes Zombie tokens at least. You could always add support to your board with non-Zombies that are Allies and Rogues.
Zombies appear in white the least, so Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder might be the best four colour to go with. There's enough zombies that have ETBs that they could be pretty fun with Yidris.
Best of luck to you!

I've found the strongest allies can be is if you can repeat their ETB effects. Blink and cloning are the best ways to go about that. Graveyard retrieval is another option as well.
I've got tons of effects to make my allies recur over and over in my allies version. It's way more expensive (I originally built it as budget and had cracked most of the cards from packs at the time) but there are still some great budget finds in there:
My big suggestions for at least some protection/recursion from removal and some tricks (you don't have to go with the whole recurring flicker gimmick to get use out of some strategically done recursion... such as snagging more tutors out of Tazri) would be Eerie Interlude , Momentary Blink , Planar Guide , Rescue from the Underworld , March from the Tomb could replace your All Suns' Dawn since it puts them right back on the field. If you don't like the blinking idea Tazri, Beacon of Unity from your maybeboard can help repetitively dig for allies better than a one time tutor ETB from General Tazri will.
Also not budget, and it will make you do a lot of math since all the copies ETB and see each other at the same time, but Rite of Replication is one of the strongest cards allies decks can use, as well as Panharmonicon .

You're probably going to find more reduced-cost creatures, then, and you got a lot of the best ones. How about Ghoultree , Ancient Stone Idol , Tazri, Beacon of Unity , Marshmist Titan , or Khalni Hydra ? (I'd like to see the deck that runs both of the last two.)
