I'm not sure what your stance is, but you may want to consider using proxies. You could also consider Manaless Dredge. It's cheaper and more efficient than this list. If neither of these options strikes your fancy, then I have some suggestions for your list. Take out the 4 Creeping Chill s. Replace 1 with another Hogaak, 1 with another Putrid Imp , and the other 2 with Flayer of the Hatebound . Flayer will be your main reanimation target for Dread Return and should close out the game if you reanimate it. A Dread Return package in the maindeck is certainly not ideal though. You should definitely be playing Cephalid Coliseum . It's an uncounterable "Dredge 15ish" that you can usually play around turn 2-3. I'd consider taking out your fetches for these. Those are all the changes I'd make to the maindeck and the next changes are all for the sideboard. Chain of Vapor is what I personally run to deal with permanent-based graveyard hate but that usually fits better into the more explosive lists that can run Lion's Eye Diamond . Therefore, you'd probably have more success running 2 Serenity and 2 Nature's Claim . 4 Leyline of the Void is always a good idea. 3 Silent Gravestone in the sideboard doesn't hinder your plans as long as you don't run it alongside Dread Return and it protects your graveyard against Surgical Extraction . Playing 3 Lotus Petal in your sideboard can help your deck be more explosive when it needs to be. Lastly, 1 Ashen Rider should be in the sideboard as a reanimation target if you suspect that your opponent may have or may board in an Ensnaring Bridge to stop your zombie army. Once again, I'd reccommend that you either proxy the LEDs or play Manaless Dredge (both of which are better options than playing this list), but if that's not an attainable goal, then making these changes to the deck should be the best thing you can do for the deck. I hope this helped you out! Have a wonderful day!

META CHANGE / DECK CHANGE

very cool deck, I build also my own version, but decide to take more of midrange/ramp approach. If you are interested here the link: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/redgreen-combustible-gearhulk/
but there are some sub-optimal cards, that have a clear upside. Maybe check them out. Shock -> Wild Slash easy upgrade Silhana Wayfinder -> puts the card just on the top of the library, its not really a constructed card. with Once Upon a Time banned Bond of Flourishing or Seek the Wilds are very close.
Some suggestions from me: Paradise Druid -> i would go for the faster one like Llanowar Elves . so you can go Turn1: Llanowar Elves , Turn2: Rhythm of the Wild , Turn3: Champion of Rhonas -> drop a payoff. So you speed up your optimal gameplan by 1 turn.
Ashen Rider -> looks cute. but just works, if your plan A works and then you want go for a game ending play. i would just add castable cheap removal or sideboard it in for game 2/3. When you want go cute, then i would decide for Medomai the Ageless . the endless turns/attacks with Ilharg, the Raze-Boar is just winning on the spot, if your opp is not ready for it.

I was considering a list like this which maindecked Lazotep Plating to abuse Ashen Rider and Agent of Treachery , but its not really fast enough- flicker seems good enough. I'm pretty sure your list is close to optimal unless there are tutor effects you can use for setup.

I'd recommend Ashen Rider over Noxious even if it does contain white due to it's incredibly powerful ability. Whip of Erebos would be a really good reusable reanimation tool that could also replace the lifegain lost by potentially removing Noxious. Grisly Salvage might be worth using over Glowspore depending on how the creature base ends up looking.

Nice deck there dude!
Here are some ideas for improving it :
First time that came to me, the lands! Having the fetches could really helps you dig what you need better with the Sensei's Divining Top and the others cantrips effect you got. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is really good to help you fix your black mana, Karn's Bastion is good synergy with the commander itself.
Also, having MORE planewalkers to this deck sound really an advantage. Just the -1 of Aminatou, the Fateshifter could mean doing the abilities more times in the same turn, even better if you have the Oath of Teferi or The Chain Veil .
As for the creatures, I would try to find some space for those super valuable : Snapcaster Mage , Sun Titan , Eldrazi Displacer , Gilded Drake . For better version of Angel of Despair , either Hostage Taker and Ashen Rider .
Last advice would be, get some Wraths!

One of my favorite board wipes in a token based deck is
because you can either get 4 dudes for 6 mana which is eh or you can get 5+ and increasing starting at 7 with a board wipe.
Things like Ashen Rider , Archon of Justice , and Angel of Despair can work really well in any WB deck but especially when you are recovering them from the graveyard and wanting them to die anyway.
Would you also consider a Swords to Plowshares ? It's simply strong with no additional costs for 1 mana and who cares that they gain some life unless it's hundreds? And even then it could be hundreds that aren't killing you. Also, since you have the infinite combo for Teysa with Darkest Hour, you could also consider Debt to the Deathless or Exsanguinate for a finisher with that mana. I win with Debt without even going infinite. Storm Herd is also a heavy hitter.
