A few cards that I can recommend are Karmic Guide , it infinitely combos with Reveillark if you have a sac outlet. also, Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a great tutor along with Diabolic Tutor both good and cheaper than Demonic Tutor but any of the three are great for consistency. lastly, Razaketh, the Foulblooded is a great win con when you have phyrexian altar or pitiless plunderer and will most likely win you the game off it. I also recommend some instant speed removal as you have none, Go for the Throat , Swords to Plowshares are some good starters.

Thanks for the suggestions B0effe
Reliquary Tower for Swamp looks like a easy update and will give me 2 anti discarding effects in case I don't get Venser's Journal out. I'm trying to keep the Black mana symbols since those count toward a couple of my drain effects Soul Burn , Consume Spirit , Drain Life .
I absolutely love the buyback of Slaughter in this deck so it's staying in. I am considering the swap of Go for the Throat for Vraska's Contempt though. I won't get to reanimate the creature but sometime it's better to permanently remove a problem.

Looks like fun! I would suggest to use Reliquary Tower and maybe even Thought Vessel , since you run some draw abilities, which can be devastating for your opponents if you don't have to discard down to a maximum handsize, e.g. with Necropotence or Necrologia .
Further, although I fully get the idea of using lifegain to ensure your lifetotal while using, e.g., Erebos' draw ability, you may consider to run Platinum Angel . If you have angel on the battlefield and play Ad Nauseam at the end of opponent's turn, you may put your entire library into your hand. On your turn, you play Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond , gain +1 life = win the game.

Hi! First of all, I like the concept of the deck, it seems pretty cool. However at first sight I can see two issues that you might have with this deck. The first is that you have way too much land! Having 47 lands in a Commander deck is a ton, even with a 8-drop Commander, specially considering that you have quite some ramp.
That takes me to the second issue. You barely have any removal. I would cut about 10 lands and add more removal such as Hero's Downfall , Malicious Affliction , Go for the Throat or Doom Blade . Maybe even some board wipes, Black Sun's Zenith is a pretty cool and mosty unexpensive in black! Finally, you could add some counterspells if that's your jam, if only to protect yourself. Swan Song and Pact of Negation are specially useful in commander. Oh! Also Throne of the God-Pharaoh doesn't seem that useful, in that, you don't have too many creatures, and almost any of them have tap abilities.
As a final note, I like a lot this type of deck, and yours doesn't seem that bad (in spite of the length of my comment haha). Have fun brewing! :D

I too have found the problem of not having a board wipe for creature decks, and though it is four mana and not a guaranteed board wipe Languish has worked well for me, it also solves the problem of protection and indestructibility, all in one card! Languish may not be the best against big mana decks, but you could always try to go under them. Developing a sideboard that can switch Courser of Kruphix for a more aggressive creature is the way I would go. Another way to beat big mana decks would be to use a few Go for the Throat s and Maelstrom Pulse as it is currently on the cheap. The last way I can recommend is to maybe run one Ghost Quarter against Tron. Hope this helped, and good luck on budget Rock.

Hello my friend ! Really nice deck ! The only suggestion I would make is cutting Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker . The CCM is way to high and this card is 99% a dead card in hand in the format. Furthermore you already have quiet some kills in your deck (especially your commander).
I'm not that sure about Languish too since it kills all the creatures you have in the deck and your commander. Fiery Confluence or Radiant Flames seems much appropriated if you want to keep the same amount of wrath.
I'm far from beeing a pro player so these are more an opinions rather than advices ! Have a nice day !

2 ways I would build SG on a budget:
Zombie token makers ( Liliana's Reaver ) + Zombie Token lords ( Eternal Skylord ) + kill spells ( Go for the Throat ); since SG makes zombie tokens you can kill an opponent's best creature, reanimate it, and it will get buffed. You will proactively make zombies for offense/defense while reactively killing problem creatures and turning them into your minions.
Strong enter-the-battlefield trigger creatures ( Plaguecrafter ) + Arcane Adaptation + kill spells ( Murder ); since SG makes a token of the exiled creature, being able to get a second trigger is great. With AA you obviously name "zombies" and now all your creatures boost SG' upkeep trigger. You are controlling opponents through your creatures entering the battlefield while, again, you are using kill spells to get rid of threatening creatures you want to turn into zombies.
2 other viable routes, though less 'zombie,' are discard via spells ( Syphon Mind ) and creatures ( Liliana's Specter ) to which you reanimate creatures your opponents' discard & mill via creatures ( Consuming Aberration ) and spells ( Mind Grind ).
You chose a lot of good zombies but I would ask whether they are good enough that you would reanimate? While SG promotes creatures, I would not forget about relevant zombie-focused spells. Ex. Apprentice Necromancer is cute but I would cut it for Cemetery Recruitment since it draws a card too or Ghoulcaller's Chant which grabs 2 back.
I would add more card advantage ( Ambition's Cost , Ancient Craving , Live Fast ) and ramp ( Mind Stone , Dimir Cluestone , Seer's Lantern ). I would shoot 10+ sources of each because nothing is less fun than not being able to cast your spells and top-decking.
The inclusion of Paradox Haze is a great idea!
