Ok, are you playing in MTGO or paper? Either way, here are the cards I might take out, either because they are too slow, or they are better in multiplayer (or they are just bad). Dark Salvation, Prized Amalgam, Noxious Ghoul, Liliana's Reaver, Army of the Damned, Crux of Fate, Vanquisher's Banner, Noosegraf Mob, Vindictive Lich, Dread Summons, Endless Ranks of Dead, Altar of Dementia, Sol Ring, Undead Alchemist, Kindred Dominance, Geralf's Messenger, Never / Return, Call to the Grave Grimgrin, Corpse-Born. You could definitely take out others as you play the deck.

Here are some good cards that would be good to have, but not all will make the cut. Rings of Brighthearth, Basalt Monolith, Talisman of Dominance, Arcane Denial, Counterspell, Lim-Dul's Vault, Swan Song, Pact of Negation, Snapcaster Mage, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Toxic Deluge, Damnation, Leyline of Anticipation, Vedalken Orrery, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Thought Vessel, Glen Elendra Archmage, Commander's Sphere, Solemn Simulacrum, Gilded Lotus, Cyclonic Rift, Overwhelming Denial, Search for Azcanta  Flip, Forbid, Bloodchief Ascension, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Underground Sea, Sunken Ruins, Cavern of Souls, Ancient Tomb.

I'm sure there are many other cards that would be great in the optimized version of this deck, but these are the ones I can think of right now. Also, I am not extremely familiar with the current meta of MTGO(?) 1v1 commander, so there may be cards that are good because of the meta. You will want to do some research and you will definitely make changes as you play. Have Fun!

Call to the Grave has a hidden synergy, since Daxos is a zombie.

For starters, never play any card that only gains you life once Chaplain's Blessing. Especially in commander.

Take a look at your non zombie creatures, and with each one ask yourself "what does this do for my zombies?" Ex. "What does Avacyn, Angel of Hope do for my zombies? She gives them indestructible!"

Finally, my actual suggestions for cards to put in. Cemetery Reaper, Rooftop Storm, Death Baron, Diregraf Captain, Gempalm Polluter, Ghoulraiser, Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Lich Lord of Unx, Lord of the Undead, Risen Executioner, Undead Warchief, Zombie Master, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Gisa and Geralf, The Scarab God, Anointed Procession, Call to the Grave, Dread Summons, Grave Titan, and Endless Ranks of the Dead

Thanks for commenting ersatz_olorin. I've been thinking of taking skittles out of the deck. I'll probably put Call to the Grave or Black Market into the deck.

I'd take out Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon since it's your only infect creature.

Generally it's a good idea to choose one or the other rather than divide your damage between the two. One Swords to Plowshares and you just paid 5 mana to gain 4 life.

I'd probably replace it with Cryptbreaker, Urza's Incubator, Call to the Grave, or Black Market.

Noxious Ghoul so no one can block your army of the undead.

Door of Destinies so all your undead are beefy.

You have access to blue so maybe Cyclonic Rift to give yourself an open board.

Call to the Grave will also clear the board.

Death Baron could be nice to boost your Zombies.And Call to the Grave will let your opponents sacrifice their creatures while you are stocking up Zombies.
