Hey SP3CTR3_chelts and thanks for the comment.
I am going to keep this deck as mono Black because if white is added it may be too inconsistent but I have given Wayward Servant a thought. Anointed Procession is a different story because what I have played tokens aren't the main point and in this deck there are only 8 cards that make tokens.
Even though I love Festering Mummy I have to sadly say no. This deck has already 8 turn 1 plays and that is enough and it usually gives the -1/-1 counter to the creature that blocked it or become blocked by it.
Your suggestions could work in a different deck because BW zombies can be a thing but personally I want to stay in black (and staying in black means that I can play more nonzombie creatures if I want) and Festering Mummy could be played if you don't want to get Dread Wanderer

Hi loving the deck. I can see the zombies really getting quite big.
One suggestion could be splashing a little white in the deck. I know it could mean getting some cards out onto the field (like graveyard marshal) a little more difficult. However, if you kept it to a bare minimal splash for Wayward Servant it could be quite effective. This splash could be made quite easily with Concealed Courtyards and or Isolated Chapels. Which would also enable you to put an Anointed Procession in there (double the zombies=double the fun :D)
if you do not like the idea of adding white Festering Mummy is quite a nice 1 drop I know it is not as big as Diregraf Ghoul but its death effect can be very useful especially against aggro decks. It also can still trade with an opposing creature with 2 toughness the same as Diregraf Ghoul. Sorry for the long post, I am excited to see zombies make a comeback :) Thanks for reading, Ed

If you are going to use Fungal Infection then you should probably use it to replace Festering Mummy instead, I use Festering Mummy because the creature can come out before the -1/-1 counter and I can kill it and put on a creature at any moment with Costly Plunder, but you could use Fungal Infection if you want

Yeah, cut them altogether. Renewed Faith and Sanguine Glorifier are overcosted. Fan Bearer and Festering Mummy provide minimal benefit, so I think it's better to just replace them with higher value creatures. Squire's Devotion is a middling card that competes with better cards (e.g. Mavren Fein, Lord of the Accursed) for the 3 CMC slot.
Wow, I had no idea how poorly I was operating in the department of insanity and adventure. I'll get right on stepping up my game

I don't see the point in running 2 mana- mana dorks since your ramp curve is 1, 3, 5 not 2, 4, 6. If you are going all in on ramp then Llanowar Elves would be a lot more effective.
Now if you ever decide to run black instead of blue then the following should be pretty useful:
Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Torment of Hailfire, Journey to Eternity Flip, Liliana, Death's Majesty, Yawgmoth's Vile Offering, Demonlord Belzenlok, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Moment of Craving, Vraska's Contempt, Cut / Ribbons, Vicious Offering, Unlicensed Disintegration, Yahenni's Expertise, Phyrexian Scriptures, Golden Demise, Fatal Push
I found for dealing with aggro Festering Mummy is insanely good. Can deal with a lot of 2/1s or 1/1s and also trades in combat with 2/2s. To top it all off it is also a great sacrifice outlet.
Frankly, when you have enough mana and reanimation you can start to just ignore your opponents counter spells. With exception to syncopate.
The only thing you'll lose out on is Pull from Tomorrow though if all your cards are mana sinks its a non-issue.

Every commander deck should have Sol Ring. Strionic Resonator can copy Atraxas profligerate abilty, allowing you to do it twice per turn. Other suggestions I have are: Hardened Scales, Azor's Elocutors, Give / Take, Festering Mummy, Fuel for the Cause, Spread the Sickness, Blighted Agent, Core Prowler, Corrupted Conscience, Necropede, Pistus Strike, Plague Stinger, Tainted Strike, Viral Drake, Viridian Corrupter, Astral Cornucopia, Deepglow Skate, Banshee's Blade, Chimeric Mass, Darksteel Reactor, Grindclock, Lux Cannon, Umezawa's Jitte.

I don't think Duress or Harsh Scrutiny are good enough in a multiplayer game. Also Festering Mummy just seems like a waste of a card in this deck. These are the cards I'd most likely just swap for either maybe some mana rocks or removal.
