I don't know exactly what your budget is like but a good way to speed this deck up would be with some artifact ramp, the signets are nice but I don't see a Sol Ring which should be a staple in a deck with this many big baddies. Also, if you can snag a Mana Vault it will really help on the early commander plays. Mana Crypt is insanely expensive now but it is also a very powerful ramp card. This all being said you are running green and because of that you have a huge variety of green ramp available to you as well as cards like Mirri's Guile and Sylvan Library to help set up the triggers from your commander. All of the shock lands were recently reprinted, now would be a good time to pick them up if you are able to before they go back up in price and though they can be rather pricey the fetch lands will make any deck run a lot smoother and more efficient thus making the deck faster. One more land I think you might want to consider is Ancient Tomb . It does damage you but with 40 life and the amount of dinosaurs you have to potentially swing with the game will (hopefully) be over before Tomb is a danger to yourself.

Knight of the Reliquary seems like a cool include that I’ll try out and my deck should definitely have Ancient Tomb in it. Yeh Seance is so good, was taking over a lot of games to the point where my play group almost always instantly remove it if they can. It can perform very poorly though if you have no way of putting cards in the grave. Think I’ll give Seedborn Muse a try as well.

Enral Usually as you hit your 3rd land you're fine, this is sort of the critical landdrop, if you're not drawing a rock.

As soon as you got the 3rd you can start playing cards like Painful Truths , Read the Bones or Honor the God-Pharaoh and a few are even cheaper as Cathartic Reunion , Faithless Looting and Night's Whisper . You can also use tutors like Demonic Tutor for a land like Ancient Tomb and you're good for 2 turns, or if you're just desperate for a landdrop. These cantrip, tutor and carddrawspells provide that you can keep on playing a land each turn.

Checkout my custom ordering, the cards mentioned are listed at ★ FILTER ★, ★ CARD-ADVANTAGE ★ and ★ TUTOR ★. All cards providing ritual like boosts are listed at ★ RITUALS ★. Some of these are reusable, some not. Adding up to a total of about 35 cards i can make sure i can follow the plan.

Thanks multimedia! I upvoted a bunch of your decks in return

I do hope to add the new modern horizons lands. They'll likely replace basic swamps and forests. I also just traded for a Phyrexian Tower which took the place of a basic swamp. Ancient Tomb I have in a few other decks. Maybe I'll swap one over eventually. Strip Mine is mean, maybe too mean, but I'll definitely consider it ;)

I tore apart two decks to build this one. Sylvan Library was in the pile, so that's an idea. Deathrite Shaman as well, which may go in my wife's Doran, the Siege Tower deck.

I don't own a Birthing Pod , Pernicious Deed , Spore Frog or Sidisi, Undead Vizier ; but I hope to sooner than later. They're all great ideas.

Thanks again! Cheers!

Looks like SideBae has mentioned most of the really great advice so far, a majority of it regarding strict upgrades to cards you have in the deck like Ancient Tomb over Temple of the False God . This is good advice but I would recommend that if you don’t have the cash to get your hands in the more expensive, strict upgrades that those can be done at a later stage. I think you should follow Sidebae’s advice more attuned with putting in totally new cards like Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos because these are cards you should be running with a sac outlet as a commander. Once you figure out the direction of the deck, then the strict cash-money upgrades can be made for the cheaper alternatives you may have in place.

I’s say the two biggest cards other than Gravepact and Dictate of Erebos that you shiukd be running are Conspiracy and/or Ashes of the Fallen . These cards will allow you to run a less strict zombie creature collection but will count those creatures as zombies anyway (if you were running blue Arcane Adaptation is the best card for this).

I definitely agree with SideBae regarding the zombie creatures, the removal, and the looting. I would recommend running Vandalblast specifically, maybe even something like Aura Barbs to smack opponents around for using enchantments. I would highly recommend Blood Moon for more control.

As far as the looting goes definitely Faithless Looting , Reforge the Soul , and Wheel of Fate as all cheaper alts to Wheel of Fortune . Burning Inquiry is decent too.

Crypt Ghast and Bubbling Muck for mana boosters. Also, Mana Flare or Braid of Fire perhaps—-although the latter will only help with instants.

Anyway, hope some of that helps! Super unique running Rakdos zombies. +1
