A Gempalm Polluter can be great at any game stage.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Undead Warchief would also fit in well.

For reanimation, Ghoulcaller's Chant, Cemetery Recruitment, and Wander in Death are both useful. Bontu's Monument can also help you keep your life where you need it. And while the Colossus can't reanimate itself, the constant supply of tokens more than outweighs it. For a bit more control, Compelling Deterrence is a zombie staple. If you want even more toys, an Esper ()zombie deck is now viable thanks to Amonkhet. If you'd like, you can check out my take on it here: Standard Esper Zombies. Drownyard Temple is nice cause you can always discard it and then return it to the battlefield. Dark Salvation is a bit situational, but it might prove useful. Gempalm Polluter is a great late-game wincon, along with Grey Merchant of Asphodel. Havengul Runebinder could also be interesting. Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip is expensive, but well worth saving for. Necromancer's Stockpile is probably better than Pulse of the Grid for card draw and creature advantage. And, of course, Rooftop Storm is a classic. Unbreathing Horde and Undead Alchemist are my final suggestions for a . Hope this helps!

Just a few old zombie tribal suggestions: Vengeful Dead, Gempalm Polluter and Unholy Grotto.

Tombstone Stairwell with Eldrazi Monument. I run this combo in my mono black zombie tribal deck and it gets out of hand real quick.

Cycling Gempalm Polluter is always fun in tribal zombies.

Since you're running Buried Alive, maybe it would be worth your while to try hard reanimates like Animate Dead, Necromancy, Stitch Together and Reanimate along with big threats like Sheoldred, Whispering One to control your opponent's board, but also reanimate yours with ease?

Imagine a T1 Swamp, Mox Diamond, Mana Crypt, buried alive, second main - Reanimate Sheoldred. Chances are they won't have an immediate answer, and you get to reanimate whatever creature you decided to pitch.

Gempalm Polluter, Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat make good alternate wincons with zombies, and all mono black decks need Necropotence.

Just realized if you play Army of the Damned and then cycle Gempalm Polluter it is 13+ dmg

Gempalm Polluter seems busted, at least for the price.
