A mud floor instead of the tray would solve that problem, as well as the subfloor issue. ;)

Since you're using a tray, I think you better get the 7/8". If you were using a mud floor as your base, having the floor a little uneven wouldn't matter. With a tray, it has to be perfectly flat...

I suspect you're correct about the mortar being too dry. You want it as wet as possible, but still able to hold a notch. And once the mortar is down, don't stop to use the bathroom, smoke a...

I would not use mastic in that application. Most of the big box stores sell 10lb. bags of thinset powder that you mix with water. Use that, and some masking tape to hold it in place overnight. ...
