Thanks man, Phyrexian Crusader blows those Contagious Nims out of the water. I added a good majority of the counter spells in my collection to my sideboard. Going to test it out with the counters in main before I officially move them over. Need to pick up some Crusaders soon :)

I would start by swapping the Contagious Nims out for Phyrexian Crusaders. I don't see double black being an issue with this build. Mathematically speaking you should have 2 black mana available on turn 3 most of the time and he can win games on his own. I also like Virulent Wound at least in the SB. Gives you a chance to handle most pesky 1 drops and mana dorks and gives a poison counter so you can start to proliferate on T2. It may not be a bad idea to consider some low cost counterspells also (I.e. Spell Snare, Spell Pierce, or even something like Remand to buy you time and draw a card.) Hope that helps. Just imagine having a Phyrexian Crusader in play and getting to drop your Quicksilver Gargantuan.

I run a mono-black zombie deck as well! Here's what I would suggest based on my own experience but take what I say with a grain of salt as I'm not sure how competitive you want to get of what your budget may be.
Gravecrawler is the quintessential zombie and should definitely be incorporated.
Cryptbreaker is nice for card draw, graveyard dumping, and token production.
I'm a big fan of Scourge of Nel Toth because zombie dragon!
Unholy Grotto is the Zombie land and certainly helps a bit.
While not a zombie, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is a massive token producer with all of the wraths you run.
Geralf's Messenger is another really solid zombie that can stir up some trouble with a few reanimations.
I'm playing in a more competitive LGS so I've tossed in some other things you may not want if you're going for a casual deck. Cards like Contamination, Phyrexian Crusader, Contagious Nim, and Hand of the Praetors.
