I think you may not want to get too caught up with abusing Rakdos's ability. You don't need to stuff your deck full with >8 casting cost creatures to make Rakdos useful. In my experience Rakdos draws a lot of hate and gets targetted quite often - putting so many huge creatures in your deck just causes you to be neutralized very easily.
I would recommend putting only 2 or 3 huge casting cost creatures (or even none at all!), and making your main fighting force 5-6 mana cost creatures. This way even if you don't use Rakdos you get a good fighting force. And if Rakdos comes out you still can hyper-charge your plays. Swinging at someone for 6 damage with Rakdos, then paying BBRR to put an Inferno Titan and a Grave Titan into play is still huge.

I love zombies! and this deck is basic which means its not to hard for ANYONE WITH BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF MAGIC CAN PICK IT UP AND PLAY.
Some suggestions are Call to the Grave for removal can help get rid of pesky creatures your opponent controls making them sac them! One of my favorite non-zombie zombie support cards Grave Titan makes token and hes a beat-stick as it is. Liliana's Reaver is an awesome zombie that if left unchecked will cause your friends lots of misery!
if you want to add blue to spice things up you'll have access to counterspells along with one of my favorite zombie lords Diregraf Captain along with a decent flyer which zombies normally don't have in Siren of the Silent Song who helps get cards out of your opponents hands and if you like the effect of Grimoire of the Dead can help you fill the yard with lots of targets for mass zombification!!!!

So this deck doesn't have almost any really bad cards, but it does have quite a few suboptimal ones. Imma try to explain which and
Butcher of Malakir is almost always worse than Savra, Queen of the Golgari and than Dictate of Erebos. Both of them are much cheaper (mana-wise) and therefore can deal more damage before the opponents gather momentum.
Filth is really just not the best here. Not terrible, but this isn't a beatdown deck. Many of your dudes are always gonna have summoning sickness and the others are gonna just be too smol to deal any real damage.
Gonti, Lord of Luxury is a card that I love and have playtested a lot, but in the 4-mana slot, there are many better things. It's a good card, just not that good.
When you don't want your creatures to be sticking around, +1 counters aren't really a good plan. That makes Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest suboptimal.
Mycoloth never makes it to your upkeep. Trust me.
Priest of the Blood Rite is fine, but there are better payoffs out there for five mana.
Vulturous Zombie is only for opponents' graveyards.
So yeah. That's it. If you want me to propose some cards to include I will, but for now I'll assume one very lengthy comment is enough. Have a nice day, and happy brewing!

Some cards you can consider to making it more flavorful and threatening as well.
- Endless Ranks of the Dead
- Grave Titan
- Corpse Harvester
- Vindictive Lich
- Oversold Cemetery
- Graveborn Muse
- Sudden Spoiling
- Wake the Dead
Hope that helps!

These were just my opinions. I play the game in a certain way and enjoy the game in a certain way so thats what I base my suggestions off of. You almost certainly play and enjoy magic differently from me so there is never a "right" answer when it comes to this kind of stuff.
But as for Grave Titan, I'm not sure that he works the way you hope he does. True he doesn't specify directly that you put the zombies under your control, but I believe his text would have to say "target player puts two 2/2 zombie creature tokens onto the battlefield" or something similar to give them to a opponent. Still a awesome creature tho IMO.
And as a side note, I think maybe you should consider Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper over Reyhan, Last of the Abzan. This is entirely subjective but I think Ikra's life gain would be a lot more desirable to Reyhans counters in this deck.

Thanks! In my play tests (Just after I saved this) I felt the same thing about Runaway Steam-Kin. I was also thinking I wasn't really getting a ton of +1/+1 counters. These were great suggestions. I think the only thing I differed on was Forgotten Ancient especially in a 4 players scenario.
I am going to play around with it having Grave Titan. He does seem like a great creature. I saw you really like Black (your profile), and was wondering if you noticed it just says but two 2/2 zombies on the battlefield. It doesn't mention under your control! That makes him a great team card, but I imagine there might be some way to exploit that!
like maybe with Ward of Bones.
Thanks again for the suggestions.
