Sorry to butt in, but for a low-to-the-ground aggro zombies deck I would keep Diregraf Ghoul in. 1 mana for a 2/2 is a good rate, you want low cost creatures to flood the board with, and it gets pumped by the zombie lords so it's still fine later in the game. Here are some specific suggestions for upgrades once you get a budget for them:

Doomed Dissenter / Blood Scrivener --> Gravecrawler ( Dread Wanderer for budget)

Diabolic Tutor / Read the Bones --> Cryptbreaker (card advantage that gets buffed and makes more creatures)

Tattered Mummy --> Graveyard Marshal

Liliana's Elite / Khenra Eternal --> Relentless Dead (4 Khenras or Highborn Ghoul are fine too)

Some other cards you could look at are Diregraf Colossus , Undead Warchief , and Dark Salvation (it's probably worth playing Salvation in place of Murder ). Also, as a general tip, tribal creature decks don't play many non-creatures--around 6 at the most. Cutting some of those spells in favor of more lords would increase the efficiency and power of your deck.

Wouldn’t that be something. That’s been the main thing missing from the deck is that effect. Just dump your Gravecrawler s and Dread Wanderer s over and over. Diregraf Colossus triggers for days. I’d likely reshape the with more Colossi if they do reprint it.

This will sound bad, but you will want cheap, mediocre zombies. Dread Wanderer and Stitcher's Supplier have slightly niche abilities, but having zombies low on your curve is key to allowing you to abuse Varina's amazing card filtering ability. For 2-drops, Blood Scrivener , Graveyard Marshal , Metallic Mimic , Mummy Paramount , Nightscape Familiar , Relentless Dead , Wight of Precinct Six and Withered Wretch all have some decent abilities. Some of them are just efficient beaters, while others serve as reanimation, lords, token production, card draw and ramp, as well as graveyard hate, which is very important to have in an edh deck. Here is my list if you want to check it out.

i would add 2 Dread Wanderer too, i'm not a fan of cryptbreaker. also i think a lord like Death Baron could be more useful than Fleshbag Marauder

I would recommend Dread Wanderer as you can sacrifice it and bring it back easily for just 3 mana to sacrifice it again.

Well I'm finding Cryptbreaker a bit more useful than Dread Wanderer in my matches so far. Wanderer is nice but is a bit slow despite being a 1 drop as it comes into play tapped even when reanimated. Breaker can discard Crawler or another zombie for a creature and the discarded things eventually come back. Also with tokens in play I can easily exploit his second ability. I really like Endless Ranks of the Dead and I get where you're coming from when you say use the Seer but I feel the enchantment is more fun to play. If using the Seer what came to mind was Grave Pact to do a super combo of Crawler + Colossus + Seer + Pact. Aiming a bit high I know but most of the games I play are with friends which allow me to do these things

Alright, I finished a few decks over the last couple hours or so.

Humans: $15 Humans (Elite Inquisitors are for some spicy Vampire/Werewolf/Zombie hate)

Vampires: $15 Madness Vampires (Stromkirk Noble in place of Vampire Lacerator/Indulgent Aristocrat can be cool against the humans deck)

Here's a bonus Kor equipment deck I made for fun a while ago but never posted on tappedout: $15 Kor Equipment

I tried to make a decent zombies deck that fit within the budget but it's such a popular tribe that all the semi-good cards are over $1 each, which made it nigh impossible to make something good. If you're fine with pauper decks though, here's a zombie deck I made in that format: Suicide is occasionally the answer. It's like 10 bucks without the sideboard and can hold up pretty well against other non-competitive modern decks (and is really fun in multiplayer with Shepherd of Rot heheh).

If you don't mind using non-pauper legal cards, I suggest you make these edits:

The last two add $8ish to the price tag but with them the deck becomes more competitive and easier to play. That said, managing your life total is pretty fun if you enjoy a challenge, and chaining together Maggot Carriers with Ghoulcaller's Chant to hit the opponent for the last few points of damage is pretty satisfying. Do what you want with it.
