Brawn, Filth (get an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth!) and Genesis could be useful.

Genesis is a recur engine stuck onto a creature. Depending on whether or not you stick to the all creatures idea, Birthing Pod is a ludicrous tutor engine. Speaking of, I think mostly creatures would be better than all, so you can get some tutors and such of the non creature variety, like Diabolic Tutor, Worldly Tutor, and maybe Demonic Tutor if you can get one. Also things like Sol Ring and Chromatic Lantern help you get ahead in mana and/or assure you have all your colours. Still, I kind of like the gimmick of creatures, these are more of a push to a less gimmicky version of the deck.

Interesting deck. Crypt of Agadeem is definitely worth considering. You should develop the mana base overall.

Lotleth Troll, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Dredge cards like Golgari Grave-Troll ? Then maybe some incarnations Genesis, Brawn, Filth (with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth). These cards are not zombies but all have some use in graveyard decks. Take what you want.

Phyrexian Arena, Underworld Connections, Oversold Cemetery, Palace Siege, and Genesis can keep your hand full even with all the discard. Nice looking deck i love a good tribal, especially when it's got a cool sub theme like discard/ tokens. Patriarch's Bidding is awesome in too.

Phenax is definitely a great fit. It's one of the cards that would be among first to go in if this wasn't a budget list.Other obvious upgrades would include

Mesmeric Orb Golgari Grave-Troll Living Death Eternal Witness and Genesis

I dont like Signal the Clans, Evolutionary Leap (although I haven't used it), and Man-o'-War

I would definitely add Mystic Snake, Conduit of Ruin, Bloom Tender, and Consecrated Sphinx. Maybe Flametongue Kavu and Genesis (aka Phil Collins)

You might also want some ways to protect creatures. Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Dosan the Falling Leaf, Stoneshaker Shaman, War's Toll, and Price of Glory protect against counterspells

Archetype of Endurance and Asceticism protect your creatures once theyre out

Army of the Damned is a cool finisher that you can still cast from your graveyard if it gets milled, a lot better than Empty the Pits most of the time. But I'm not sure about Ulamog, it doesn't work with graveyard cards (Splinterfright, Life from the Loam etc. and also Laboratory Maniac) I would play more controllable effects to avoid accidental graveyard shuffle.

I think Brawn, Wonder, Filth or Genesis would be great here. Svogthos, the Restless Tomb and Volrath's Stronghold would also be useful in this kind of deck...

All are great inclusions, and for a higher competitive meta, i would include all of these.

However my personal reason for building this was to actually use a new commander, use a few of the new cards like the cat snek and the vizier, and its basically a slower, more "Fun" version, of my Yisan list. My Yisan is a little more straight forward and finely tuned and highly competitive, and my LGS and casual playgroup tends to throw a hissy fit when i play Yisan, so lowering the power level a small bit makes the larger games more fun and gives my friends a better chance of winning rather than getting stomped every game.

However, with your suggestions, for a more competitive list i would make the following changes:

IN:

OUT:

Genesis wouldnt be necessary any more to lower the curve

Aura shards is just fun tech but soley reliant on my turn or some instant speed interaction to cheat a creature (not hard just not optimal just to blow up an artifact or enchantment)

SDT is no longer necessary since we dont really need top of deck manipulation

Bloom tender realistically would only tap for , rarely and almost never full Naya
