MarrecoMTG Good to hear you like the deck! Don't underestimate yours too! Great build +1. Strionic Resonator is a great utility card and you can use it with so many other cards in the deck besides The Scarab God, Undead Augur, an extra card draw, Diregraf Colossus an extra tapped zombie, Loyal Subordinate another 3 life, etc. Lithoform Engine is a great card, but you need a Dramatic Reversal type effect to make it really effective. It also costs more to cast and activate, total, instead of if you choose the "Strionic" effect the first time.

Oak-Eye, Servant of Chaos
Legendary Creature - Treefolk Berserker
Resilience - Whenever ~ would be destroyed, instead you may flip a coin. If it is Heads, ~ gains shroud and indestructible until the end of your turn. If Tails, destroy ~.
Whenever a player untaps a creature, flip a coin. For each successful flip, that player deals damage to any target equal to it's power. For each unsuccessful flip, they take damage equal to it's power.

Nice One! My Friend! +1. How about Thraben Heretic it is a cheap cast and has no extra activation costs, just a simple tap and on instant speed. I like Silent Gravestone, cheap to cast and it locks graveyard decks like Meren of Clan Nel Toth or The Scarab God and when someone tries to get rid of it, activate it.

Maybe adding Fiend Artisan might help. since you are running a few 1 and 2 ofs, it will help you get them on the board and sacking a Gravecrawler is fine in this deck (i've been running b/w zombies a while and am currently trying to go esper since i pulled The Scarab God in 2x masters).

The Scarab God is another solid option since you can use its ability to gain additional value out of opponents’ graveyards while also removing threats from opponents’ yards.
Out of curiosity, why was mill banned? It’s one of the worst archetypes in Commander due to having multiple enemies with 100 card decks and the prevalence of graveyard shenanigans.

Hi There! Strionic Resonator is a great cheap card to add, it copies The Scarab God, Paradox Haze and Endless Ranks of the Dead triggers, see my deck scarabaeus-invaders-of-the-lost-tomb for the indepth explanation.

Hi there, I would replace Aphemia, the Cacophony, you probably never use the exile abilty in a game. Good replacements for the same or less CMC are; Cryptbreaker Gravecrawler Relentless Dead Shepherd of Rot Undead Augur
