For the zombie theme, Grave Crawler will also be better for you in this deck than Reassembling Skeleton . You could also include Cover of Darkness and Kindred Dominance . Undead Warchief will help you recast your commander when he is inevitably removed, and powers up your deck, to boot.
As for other removal, Something like Festergloom is going to be low-impact, so you'd be better off running Decree of Pain . Hero's Downfall is an easy upgrade to Murder , and Bojuka Bog and Nihil Spellbomb are easily better than Tormod's Crypt and Vile Rebirth . Gate to Phyrexia is a good card to include in mono-black, especially with the ability to churn out 2/2 zombies.
As for lands, I'm sure you've already considered it, but you've still got room in the budget for Cabal Coffers . It's never going to be a bad investment with the growing popularity of Commander. I would also go for Shizo, Death's Storehouse . It will be better than Rogue's Passage . You should seriously consider how many non-swamps you want, too, with your commander. What do you have that is going to draw you over seven cards to make use of Reliquary Tower ? Temple of the False God is awful. If you have an opening hand of two swamps and Temple, what do you do if you don't draw a third land? Also, if you're running tutors for your Cabal Stronghold , as often as not, you're going to lose that extra mana by having one less swamp out, anyway. Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse aren't doing you any favors. The deck thinning is negligible in a 99-card deck, and your commander has built-in flood protection.

magic is a rather literal game, effects that target, need the word target (otherwise it doesnt), same with the difference between Festergloom and Black Sun's Zenith. Same with Hapatra, She only cares that a creature got a -1/-1 counter, not the number of counters (Black Sun's Zenith for x=1 makes the same number of snakes as x=4)
