I kinda like what I see here but I'd try to have closer to thirty creatures as critter beatdown is how Zombie Tribal decks roll (or should that be shamble?)
My favourite Zombie is Forgotten Creation - he's crazy for drawing the cards you need and being able to fill that 'yard to the brim with hungry undead is super cool.
Dark Salvation is great late game when you can sink heaps of mana into it and straight up killing a threat is always a bonus.
Adding Living Death to my Zombie Tribal deck definitely resulted in more wins so chuck one in here for sure.

You're very heavy on the 4-drop slot. I would recommend cutting the Approach of the Second Sun, since you should be trying to win by bringing your opponent's life to zero. Anointed Procession is cool, and can be powerful, but it relies on you following it up with other cards. THough pricey, this should be History of Benalia as this card does not depend on being followed up by another card and produces more Knights on its own.
You should be running 4 of the Dauntless Bodyguards in the maindeck, they should not be in the sideboard. You're going to be wanting to swarm the enemy in a flood of chivalry as fast as possible, and a few amazing 1 drops can help you out that way. Accorder Paladin, Knight of Glory, and Sigiled Paladin are all great 2 drop knights that help you out in attacking strong and early. Knight of the White Orchid can act as ramp, but is also a decent beater.
Mirran Crusader is extremely powerful and you should definitely be running 4 of this one.
Vona, Butcher of Magan is really cool and can give you an answer to nearly anything, and she helps pay for herself with that lifelink.
You'll also want to use some of black's card draw capabilities, since card advantage is definitely white's biggest weakness. Don't be afraid to spend a little bit of life to draw some cards with Dark Bargain, Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, or Damnable Pact just to name a few.
For your sideboard, cards like Duress are very important if you're running black, I would recommend running 3-4 of these in your sideboard, since you have no other hand disruption. Celestial Purge is pretty popular, as is Timely Reinforcements. Vraska's Contempt and Anguished Unmaking can help you deal with opposing planeswalkers, and Unmaking hits any troublesome non-land, Rest in Peace, Stony Silence, and Zealous Persecution are very strong sideboard options as well.
Let me know if this was helpful or would like to know some of the reasoning's behind the suggestions!

Teferi is currently very much limited in the number of decks that can play him due playable lands for manabases. Jan. 2019 however he could become a huge problem. When all ten Shock lands and all ten Check lands will be in Standard at the same time it could be totally different because then there's no restriction of playable lands for manabases; that's what is currently keeping Teferi back.
Esper for instance becomes a ridiculously powerful shard for Teferi when have access to Hallowed Fountain and Godless Shrine. Teferi could become the next $90 card in Standard due to it being such a powerful card and Planeswalker. It's $50 right now and it's only consisently played in one deck. He could do roughly the same thing that Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip did when Battle lands and Fetch lands were in BFZ/OGW Standard together which resulted in crazy four colored $700+ competitive decks that all played Jace, shooting Jace's price up to $93 for a time.
The biggest problem and in my opinion a reason to ban Teferi is he has a monopoly on Control which will most likely get worse in Jan. 2019 (if you're playing current competitive Control, most likely Jeskai, you're playing Teferi). In Standard that would be fine if Teferi wasn't a $50 card, but he is and that's a huge problem. You also want 3-4x of him, most likely 4x, in your deck which is another problem. Wizards is not going to ban a $50 card in Standard, that will never happen with their current greed above everything else company strategy :(
I don't think a ban is necessary now, however I think another errata is. Teferi should not be able to tuck itself into your own library. His -3 loyalty text needs to say "put another target nonland permanent". Another target nonland permanent allows you to still tuck a nonland permanent you control just not Teferi.

I'm getting a misprinted Kolaghan's Command with factory ink smearing for my final k-command. So stoked. And once the Canadian mail system gets off strike and delivers my 2nd Watery Grave and a Godless Shrine, I have a trade set up to get all the remaining cards that I need. I almost have this built.
I also played modern last night for the first time in weeks. I was still playing Delver. I went 2-0 against Mardu Pyromancer and 1-2 against Jund. The 3rd game against Jund was really close. He cascaded into Assassin's Trophy on the final turn, and if he hadn't hit a removal spell I had a lethal Creeping Tar Pit for the next turn.

Goronagar I thought of many of the same things you put on that deck, but some cards just can't agree with my budget... Especially buying all the dual lands needed for 3 color decks.

If you want to keep with the strategy of gaining life to make your opponent lose life, I'd strongly suggest a more soul sisters like package (Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, and Auriok Champion). They all have the same effect as Ajani's Welcome, but since they themselves are creatures they will trigger the ability as well, and you can attack or block with them if you need to as well. In fact, most soul sister cards seem like good choices here. If you want to look at a pretty basic list, check mine out at Modern Soul.
Alternatively, if you want to double down on your vampire theme as well, you might try some cards like Blood Artist, which gets along well with the tokens and creature removal.
Also, if you want to make the deck more competitive in general, it's always a good idea to upgrade your mana base. While they may not be the flashiest cards, Godless Shrine and Marsh Flats will make sure your mana is more consistant, at the cost of a little life, and are the gold standard for modern lands in this color combination.

Interesting to see which direction you've taken Aminatou :) Rather than focus on her top-deck control, I've really gone deep on the ETB and flicker abilities - feel free to check it out Aminatou bouncing. Definitely looking at putting Wall of Denial and Godless Shrine in my deck though, thanks for the ideas!
