I would cut Festering Goblin, it is just really bad and instead make use of another zombie lord Death Baron being the best but stupidly expensive and then Metallic Mimic, Cemetery Reaper, Risen Executioner, Lord of the Undead, and Undead Warchief all also being options. I would also look into Vengeful Pharaoh for some incidental removal.

As for sideboard it is first necessary to evaluate the decks you face before making the sideboard.

Lords are creature cards that buff or interact positivly wuth other creatures of the same type, e.g. Goblin Chieftain , Goblin King, Master of the Pearl Trident , Death Baron etc..

Idk if anyone has mentioned this, but a growing number of cards are not loading their reversed side for the transform cards, and many cards are loading as generic black images with only the card name. Also, many cards (Especially the ones reprinted in Iconic Masters) are failing to load prices.

Here's a list of cards I have noticed problems with on the decks I have created.

So far that's all I have noticed, but I did notice that with these cards when I enter playtesting it often has issues. It won't truly "randomize" decks (You'll often topdeck the same card you just drew, or you'll shuffle all lands to the top / bottom).

I don't know if it's a coincidence but it's worth noting these are all black cards with the exception of Pious Evangel, who's a white creature but transforms into a black creature and it is the "Flip" side-text that won't load. That, and in playtest when you flip him over it reveals the generic back of the card, and not Wayward Disciple.

Personally, one of the first things I'd suggest doing is to take out the Revenant Patriarch and Corpulent Corpses. If the goal of the deck is to end the game early, then you should probably be taking out the cards that take a while to get out. Some good cheap cards you can get would be Bone Splinters, Plague Belcher, Diregraf Colossus, Lord of the Accursed, Carrion Feeder, Nantuko Husk, Voracious Null, and Wayward Servant. Some good expensive-ish cards you could get would be Geralf's Messenger, Gravecrawler, Relentless Dead, Undead Warchief, Lord of the Undead, Death Baron, and Endless Ranks of the Dead.

I have a slightly slower deck that looks a lot like this, and I've found that Diregraf Colossus works really well both in early and late game, and also synergizes really well with Gravecrawler and Relentless Dead. Also, Plague Belcher works with Relentless Dead and Bloodghast, essentially giving you a 5/4 menace for free. Undead Warchief gives a massive stat boost, plus making all of your zombies cost 1 less, and I would suggest replacing two Death Barons with two Lord of the Accursed. The Death Baron deathtouch ability is useless if you already have one, and you can always recur them, so Lord of the Accursed seems to be a great replacement for them.

My first deck I made, I've had one big revamp and I just made a small edit recently. The deck is going be about $250, but $300 for me because I like the foils. The main focus of the deck is to keep zombies on the field, either by pulling them back by their own abilities or others. If they can stay on the field until any one of the three chieftains (Death Baron, Lord of the Accursed, and Undead Warchief) can hit the field, victory should come swiftly.

I play legacy zombies. Unless you play zombardment (not a true zombie tribal) they are pretty weak. Legacy is a brutal format and elves/gobs seem to be the main viable tribals. That being said I love the direction you took with your legacy zombs, way different than the way I went.

I do think 4x Gravecrawler with 3-4x Buried Alive is probably one of the most synergistic combos for a zombie tribal, especially with the mana ramp like Dark Ritual you have in there. I also think that if you are playing monoblack like this you should ABUSE the discard power black has with Thoughtseize or Hymn to Tourach. One of the most broken black cards in the format Reanimate or Animate Dead if you want budget is great with zombies as well. With these you have some nasty potential for turns 1-2 to either force and opponent to discard a powerful creature card and reanimate it on your side, or t1 start shitting out gravecrawlers from your yard and overwhelm. A turn 1 Buried Alive will also be great to fuel your graveyard for dropping a very early Gurmag Angler if you have to.

Relentless Dead is obscenely overpowered, especially with Corpse Harvester.

I have been playing with Smallpox recently, and it could have some potential.

Diregraf Colossus is nuts for zombies.

Since you are going hard ramp, 4x Korlash, Heir to Blackblade is great. Read the Bones is a good draw over Night's Whisper and Sign in Blood as well imo.

Bloodghast, Death Baron.

You have the same amount of land I ran in a GoN elves deck, which doesn't seem right.

First I recommend taking out: Havengul Runebinder, Cemetery Recruitment, Undead Alchemist, Nantuko Husk, Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher, Ashes of the Fallen, Perpetual Timepiece, Secrets of the Dead, Ancient Excavation, Murder, Compelling Deterrence, Liliana's Mastery, Obelisk of Urd, Graf Harvest, and Zombie Infestation, Ghoulcaller's Chant,

Cards that you should put in: Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Grave Pact, Unholy Grotto, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Living Death, Cryptbreaker, Death Baron, Phyrexian Reclamation, High Market, Corpse Harvester, Balthor the Defiled, Reassembling Skeleton, Skullclamp, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Zombie Apocalypse, Crypt of Agadeem, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Reliquary Tower, Bojuka Bog, Diabolic Intent, Patriarch's Bidding, and Demonic Tutor.

Alternate commanders or cards to include in the deck could be: The Scarab God and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

If you are really trying to stay Timmy with the deck, then I won't recommend Phyrexian Altar because it goes infinite with Gravecrawler and any kind of death/ETB trigger, but then again, it does it with Rooftop Storm and a sac outlet too.

Other cards that can be really good in zombies include: Sheoldred, Whispering One, Corpse Connoisseur, Zombie Trailblazer, Twilight's Call, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Demonic Collusion, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Scourge of Nel Toth, River Kelpie, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Burnished Hart, Disciple of Bolas, Harvester of Souls, Damnation, Rune-Scarred Demon, Phenax, God of Deception, Beacon of Unrest, Corpse Augur, Palace Siege, Infernal Caretaker, Contamination, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead, Dread Wanderer, Boneknitter, Grimoire of the Dead, Pontiff of Blight, Custodi Lich
