Okay, the easyest ways to upgrade this deck are:
This frees up fourteen slots.
To fill them I would add:
4x Undead Augur
Other (expensive) options:
Gravecrawler is great, but after it spiked, it might be a little to expensive. If you ever do add Gravecrawler , Carrion Feeder is insane. Tidehollow Sculler is one of the best zombies, but without expensive lands, it might not be the right fit.
Thoughtseize : Although you probably don't want to play Inquisition, Sculler and Thoughtseize , they are all good cards. Blood Moon compleatly shuts down some decks, while mostly leaving red decks intact. Leyline of the Void is A+ Sideboard Material, and is always a good cards to play in the 15.
Bloodstained Mire , Polluted Delta , Blackcleave Cliffs and Blood Crypt are all staples of R/B manabases, because of the fetchlands ability to fetch Blood Crypt . Because of this, they are at a crazy price right now, but they are the best.

Alright, I finished a few decks over the last couple hours or so.
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:
- 4 Maggot Carrier --> 4 Diregraf Ghoul
- 3 Festering Mummy + 1 Carnophage --> 4 Dread Wanderer
- 2 Sangrophage + 2 Wretched Anurid --> 4 Graveyard Marshal
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.

Interesting deck! I like the many different combos that are open for you to explore! Some other creatures that may help you get some -1-1s rolling are Fume Spitter, Festering Mummy, or even Pith Driller. Simple and cheap but in your deck, might help start some shenanigans.
