If you are choosing to play Skilled Animator , I would play some one drop artifact spells. That way on turn three you can play the animator and swing with a 5/5. I would drop the Dimir Locket and add something like Fountain of Renewal or something close to that. Also I would drop Thought Collapse all together. A creature that might help you out and is pretty cheap $ is Traxos, Scourge of Kroog

Currently you have no reason to need white mana in the side so trading some BW duels for basics should be better. Running Field of Ruin / Blast Zone could add utility to your mana base that gets ramped up to 11 with the ability of Karn, the Great Creator to fetch Crucible of Worlds from the side. Your game plan seems pretty grindy so Mox Amber might be better off as a Dimir Locket / Gleaming Barrier just because only 7 cards enable it to make mana making it a Darksteel Relic most of the time.

UPDATES:

1) Replaced Wurmcoil Engine with Impervious Greatwurm as I believe it to be a better reanimation target.

2) Replaced Golgari Signet & Dimir Signet by Golgari Locket & Dimir Locket as I believe they are better.

3) Replaced Cancel with Thought Collapse as it fit the deck theme better.

Cards to consider ousting:

drpeppercan on Scarab god

Some cards to consider:

  • Bojuka Bog : A must include in any black commander deck.
  • Boneknitter : Utility, simple as that.
  • Corpse Harvester : Out with the old, in with the new... and a swamp!
  • Cryptbreaker : So much value in such a small package. Token generating, card draw, good in the early and late game... what is not to love about this card!
  • Death Baron : A zombie lord with some extra punch Sure he doesn't get deathtouch himself, but all those 2/2 tokens that are now 3/3 deathtouch.
  • Dread Summons : Ever seen those zombie movies with that big hoard that just keeps coming... that's this card. Gives you a bunch of tokens, and recursion bait for your commander.
  • Endless Ranks of the Dead : Card title kind of says it all for this one. Obviously not the best in metas with wrath effects coming down every turn, but shines like a copper penny otherwise.
  • Ghoulcaller Gisa : So take one creature, throw it under the bus, and get more...
  • Grave Titan : Why this thing isn't a zombie I will never know. 6/6 for 6, deathtouch, and brings two friends with it AND when it attacks.
  • Graveborn Muse : Card draw based on zombies, who is also a zombie!
  • Infernal Caretaker : Mass recursion, either play them out, or discard them back for more effects.
  • Liliana, Death's Majesty : Just an all around strong zombie planeswalker.
  • Liliana's Mastery : Zombies + an anthem that won't be a big target for removal.
  • Lord of the Undead : A low to the ground zombie lord with recursion on a stick.
  • Noxious Ghoul : Sweeps out low toughness cards for things you're already doing. Just great value.
  • Relentless Dead : A great early drop, and late game it serves as a sac target + recursion.
  • Shepherd of Rot : Yes it hits you, but this can be such a major threat.
  • Undead Warchief : Cheaper zombies, and bigger zombies. All in one convenient package.
  • Awaken the Erstwhile : Disruption, plain and simple. Sure it hurts your hand too, but you are the one with all the zombie based anthems.
  • Victim of Night : Doomblade 2.0, but hits black creatures.
  • Sidisi, Undead Vizier : You'll have so many tokens kicking around to exploit that she's just a straight tutor, and if she ever hits the graveyard just use her again with Scarab God.
  • Fleshbag Marauder : Hurts them a lot more than you, and enter the battlefield abilities are great with Scarab around.
  • Josu Vess, Lich Knight : Solid 4/5 Menace for 4, got the extra 6 mana though and he brings friends who also have menace.
  • Wonder : Flying zombies... yep, that's scary.
  • Pull from Tomorrow : Nice draw on an instant with the added benefit to pitch something for Scarab to target.
  • Price of Fame : Legendary killer + Surveil 2... love it.
  • Sinister Sabotage : Counterspell + Surveil... love it too.
  • Paradox Haze : You've got a couple effects that trigger on upkeep, why not double up?
Some mana fixing/ramp: What would I take out:
  • The deck currently seems to be going in two directions, you have a large zombie theme which I love, but you also have a minor mill theme which seems out of place.
  • Advanced Stitchwing : Slow for what it gives, even on the bounce back it comes back tapped.
  • Apprentice Necromancer : This is one I'm on the fence suggesting, it's a one use for one turn only.
  • Grimgrin, Corpse-Born : This guy is beast, but he works best in a deck build around him.
  • Lamplighter of Selhoff : Slow, for his effect.
  • Merciless Eternal : He's not bad, just a lot better things to include in the 3 cost bracket.
  • Phenax, God of Deception : Love this guy, really do, but he's out of place here because he's a mill guy who loves big butts.
  • Relentless Skaabs : This guy does everything you don't want as he hurts your graveyard in order to even hit play.
  • Servant of Tymaret : Slow with high cost. In order to make the best use of him you have to be attacking, and if the way isn't clear that means a 3 mana tax just for 1 life on each opponent.
  • Spiteful Returned : Don't hate it, but better things out there.
  • Stitchwing Skaab : Suffers from the same as Advanced Stitchwing.
  • Undead Alchemist : This guy can go either way, but the way I look at him is generally people have more cards in their decks than life, so it's easier to take out their life.
  • Vindictive Lich : This guy is fun, though for his cost there is a lot more out there.
  • Exotic Orchard : Risky unless you know your playgroup always has one of your colors, otherwise it's just a colorless and a swamp or island would be just as good.
  • Leechridden Swamp : Slows you down for a minor effect.
  • Path of Ancestry : Phenax is the only other god creature, so even if you keep him in it's very slow for the benefit it probably will never get the chance to give.
  • Coat of Arms : I love this card, I really do, but it's a calculated risk and I find zombies are usually too slow of it. Run up against a goblin or elf deck and this will do more for your opponent.
  • Mindcrank : This is another I'm on the fence with as it pairs really well with Scarab.
  • Vanquisher's Banner : Good card, though you're not casting all those tokens so you're only getting a bit of a benefit from it.
  • Liliana Vess : Good card, out of place in this deck unless you are going heavier into the mill.
  • Ob Nixilis Reignited : Just completely out of place for zombie tribal.
  • Glimpse the Unthinkable : One of those mill cards, it suffers as a one of.
  • Rise from the Grave : Expensive for effect.
  • Ruthless Disposal : This isn't bad in this deck, but compared to Morbid Slip for example it lacks that added shine.
  • Curse of Disturbance : So much politics, this is VERY meta dependent as to if players fall for the bait.
  • Quest for the Gravelord : This can work out, but more often then not stuff isn't dying fast enough or it just gets pinged with early removal.
  • Search for Azcanta  Flip: More at home in a non-creature strategy.
  • Torment of Scarabs : Most people can play around this with not too much fuss, and it gives all the choice to them. I'd prefer some targeted removal.

Yo WarriorMagic, based on the list you sent me it seems like you want to go with the value route. Is there a particular budget that you have in mind? Muldrotha has access to a plethora of colors, I can help you get like a defined list of core cards and packages that would be great and than you can add in your particular flair that you like to make it more personalized for your meta or style.

Right away from what I can see these are already a list of cards you can cut due to inefficiency.

Cut these cards away first so we can see the deck in a 100 cards first than we can work from there~

Enchantments: the Theros 'Font's, the 'Seal's (multiple sets), Zendikar's landfall expeditions, Dominaria's Sagas

Artifacts: the 'Spellbomb's (from Mirrodin/Scars of Mirrodin), Courier's Capsule , Executioner's Capsule , any on-color draw-rocks ( Dimir Locket , Simic Cluestone , etc)

Creatures: Lorwyn block's 'Evoke' creatures.

I'm scratching the surface, but most of these cards are ultra-budget to the point most are probably sitting in bulk boxes amongst the friend group.

Removed Lazav, added Siren Stormtamer and made a little room for Treasure Map  Flip. I guess anything that lets you gather info on your draw and get faster to your goal could work, like Dimir Locket
