Saw your comment on my profile and i'm happy to help. Let me start by saying there is no one "right way to build" reanimator in modern. It is important to keep in mind though that relative to the rest of the meta, reanimator is worse in modern due to its legacy counterpart due to not having access to things like Reanimate, Animate Dead, or Exhume. As a result, you have to get a bit creative and approach it from a different angle. Here are a few different decklists and why they work.
1) Unburial Gifts
This deck works off of the interaction between Unburial Rites and Gifts Ungiven. Since gifts specifies UP TO four cards, at the end of your opponents turn you can choose just rites and a big creature (and you get to choose which one is the best in the current situation you can even have a 1-of Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite as a tutor target), forcing your opponent to put both in the yard. Then you untap and bring it back. Since counterspells work nicely with keeping your mana up, this deck tends to be a bit more on the controlling side. You also have the option to grab 4 similar spells like 4 hand disruption cards such that you can shred your opponents hand no matter which they pick.
I know i said at the beginning a lot of good reanimation spells aren't modern legal. Goryo's Vengeance however is. It's also instant speed so if you can get Emrakul, the Aeons Torn into your graveyard you can respond to the trigger by bringing it into play. Sure you need to exile it at the end of turn and don't get the cast trigger but attacking for 15 and making them sacrifice 6 permanents often gets the job done. The other big creature it brings back is Griselbrand. His activated ability is great and refills your hand (also a 7/7 flying lifelink isn't bad either). This deck also has easy ways to get around graveyard hate, something most reanimator decks can't deal with in the form of Through the Breach. Whereas the first deck works more as a control deck, this one is more focused on combo and runs the maximim number of copies of Serum Visions and Sleight of Hand
This is a modification of the second deck. The way tit works is you first cheat out a Griselbrand but then it gets a bit different. When you draw your deck using his ability, you hit Nourishing Shoal and Worldspine Wurm to gain your life back. Lastly you bring out Borborygmos Enraged and discard all the lands you drew.
If I were to build modern reanimator it would probably be built around one of those three. I'm not saying zombify won't work but i think the gifts version is significantly more consistent. If you want to stick with what you have, i'd look into picking up Griselbrand as it is arguably the best card to reanimate (iona being second) assuming you can't instant speed out Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. Also Collective Brutality is another way to discard fatties while still disrupting the opponent.

This looks a lot like Grishoalbrand
If you'd like, you could use Griselbrand's draw ability to draw through your deck, discarding Worldspine Wurm to Nourishing Shoal, then hucking all of your lands at your opponent's face with Borborygmos Enraged, but I also really appreciate this build. It looks really fun and good.

Thunderous Wrath is a great card in any format it's available in, and it's not all that pricey either. I personally love Temple of Abandon, too. It's a slow land, but never underestimate the ability to Scry. You can't go wrong with a little Vexing Shusher, either.
Now, if you want to add in a bit more green, you could throw in some ramp cards like Utopia Sprawl, Arbor Elf, Birds of Paradise and Sylvan Caryatid, or even do a little ramp-burn combo with Zhur-Taa Druid. With the extra ramp, you could very easy catch your opponent off-guard with high-costing heavy hitters like Banefire or Borborygmos Enraged.

I understand your thoughts regarding Dread. Do you find yourself encountering mill decks? One reason I'm keeping Dread in my deck is as a little bit of mill protection as there are some mill decks in my meta. I also like it because it doesn't specify COMBAT damage in order to destroy the creature. There is a Saskia the Unyielding deck and a Borborygmos Enraged deck in my meta and Dread gives them pause from targeting me with their abilities. I can see how it would be meta dependent though.

I know there's not a whole lot of more fine tuned Borborygmos Enraged deck lists out there, so I figured that I could link my deck list that includes a primer that goes over card choices and general strategy.
