Each player puts the top X cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard. For each creature card put into a graveyard this way, put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield tapped.

Thanks for visiting and the suggestions! Shot your deck an up vote.
For Sensei's Divining Top, you are right. My first play test with the original version of this deck was against a Breya deck that used it to completely destroy me, so I put it in because it was a good card.
Rhystic Study I will run, it is a very good draw engine.
Necropotence however, I will not, and if you are, I recommend you take it out. Necropotence's drawback is that whenever you discard a card, you exile it. I play a lot of discard on myself to eternalize powerful creatures, so I don't think Necropotence would work to my benefit even if it is one of the best black draw spells.
However, I don't like Dark Salvation as much cuz my deck's main focus isn't zombies. For yours it can be removal for B. For mine, it's much slower bc most of my zombies are the 4/4s.
Attrition I love. I do not love, however, that I can only kill nonblack creatures. I'll give it a try because it is a nice sac outlet and removal is always welcome.
Phyrexian Reclamation seems relatively pointless because bouncing creatures from my gy to my hand doesn't do too much if I'm already gonna eternalize them.

Indeed, our list are very different, but I think that is what makes this commander so good! I think the two best routes to take with him is control and tribal. Although tribal is considered "casual" I think The Scarab God gives hope for tribal decks to be nuts! (Ya, Dragons and Elves can already be nuts).
There are a ton of take-a-ways for me from your list, but I will focus on some suggestions.
1) I think Sensei's Divining Top is a waste of a slot. Ya, it is a good card, but the commander scrys plenty.
Again, I really like your variant of the deck! +1 from me!!!

Whoah first time anyones made suggestions on any of my decks,so i'll do my best to go over why i've made many of the decisions I've made.
First off my plan is a mix of damage and mill using mill in order to steal from an opponents graveyard with the cards Geth, Lord of the Vault ,Bone Dancer,and the big one Hedonist's Trove, plus wanting my opponents to have a large graveyard to make Consuming Aberration big makes my amount of graveyard hate somewhat small with only Bojuka Bogas a full grave exile and Crypt Incursion getting rid of all creatures and serve as my only real source of life gain.
I may look for a place for Forgotten Creation as my card draw isn't perfect.
As for reanimation i have several reusable reanimation sources and a creature that can be recurred at any time namely Gravecrawler.
I have considered Soulless One but i feel i don't need both it and Consuming Aberration and i simply think the aberration is better(although i may look for a place for it,it is in my maybe board for a reason).
Thanks for your suggestions I really,genuinely appreciate them but i won't be able to use most of them for some of the reasons above. I'll make a more elaborate description explaining my deck and it's stratagems in the future.
But for now thanks for the feedback and have a fantastic day.

If mill s your target Phenax, God of Deception might be a better general. here are some cards that aren't in your maybe list that might help with milling and keep the zombie theme.
Agent of Erebos - graveyard hate
Corpse Harvester - tutor for Undead Alchemist, best mill card in the deck
Forgotten Creation - card draw (my deck has a heavy reanimation theme, might not work for your deck
Relentless Dead - reanimation
Soulless One - ultimate zombie horde
Dread Summons - Mill + zombie tokens
Crypt Ghast - not a zombie but doubling up black mana doesnt hurt.

Here are several suggestions, both zombie specific and Mikaeus specific: Balthor the Defiled to reanimate all of your dead zombies; Liliana, Death's Majesty to make them, reanimate them, and/or board wipe everything but them; Triskelion to create an endless undying loop to combo kill your opponents; Door of Destinies for zombie mass pump; Stoneforge Masterwork for zombie solo pump; Gravecrawler and Phyrexian Altar with Vengeful Dead in play creates an endless sacrifice loop to drain all your opponents (maybe even add Blood Artist or Bontu's Monument for an additional combo opportunity); Death Baron because larger zombies with deathtouch are better; and Dread Summons for a load of zombie tokens to overrun your opponents. That should be a good start.

chaosumbreon87 what I have been finding and researching looks like a lot of fun. One combo I saw was with Dread Summons , Army of the Damned, and Throne of the God-Pharaoh. And with Cabal Coffers, Crypt of Agadeem and all the tutors in black and all the sacs with Bontu it could do a lot of damage. Also powering up bontu with artifacts since she has menace you could go for lethal commander damage. especially if there are artifacts that could giver her trample and double strike, which I assume there are.
