There is a primer for this deck here on Deckstats. Not too expensive, either. What you need is more milling options so you and your opponents have very large graveyards.
"Your next line will be "Golos shouldn't have been banned!""

"Golos shouldn't have been bann.."

Won't Call to the Grave cause you to sacrifice The Scarab God every upkeep?

Along these lines...

Mesmeric Orb
Dreamborn Muse
Mindcrank

All have been stars in my Sidisi, Brood Tyrant deck.

Morganator 2.0,

I have included Maskwood Nexus to make The Scarab God a zombie, then he’s safe from Call to the Grave. Fingers crossed!
Cheers!

So you’re running one card just to be able to play another so that you don’t fall victim to your own card so you have to draw both of them because without the other the one is a dead draw?

I think I’d just run Sheoldred, Whispering One and free up a slot.

Sheoldred would be great! Thank you!
But isn’t that how the majority of cards in EDH work, especially combo pieces?
Cheers!

Combos require a lot of prior setup and brewing to make them work. They are also game winning interactions. This is not that.

If you want a good substitute you can use Noxious Ghoul. It will also affect The Scarab God, but is unlikely to remove him if you're careful.
