You both have good points, and I do have cards like Gravecrawler, Relentless Dead, Death Baron, and Lord of the Undead in my other Zombie Deck, but I was shooting for something a little different here. It originally started out as a standard deck and I realized Vedalken Orrery exists, which is the only reason this is modern. (I added Liliana Vess after making it modern, wouldn't have done that in standard obviously.) Should I just revert this back to standard and add these suggestions to my other Zombie Deck?

Have you considered Undead Warchief, Gravecrawler, Cryptbreaker, Unbreathing Horde, Relentless Dead, Death Baron, Lord of the Undead and Cemetery Reaper? I feel like a lot of these cards would help with triggering Wayward Servant and Binding Mummy multiple times as well as boosting up your zombies to do some serious damage.
Curious why you aren't running Path to Exile as cheap removal as well.

I'd look at Duskmantle Guildmage over Dimir Guildmage, as well as Bloodchief Ascension over Curse of Shallow Graves. You have several discard outlets already, and the first ability of the Duskmantle Guildmage will combo well with all of your mill effects. Now, the Curse is good, but as it only goes off once each combat, and provides aid to most of your opponents as well. The Ascension will give you a considerable stream of life, and is relatively easy to get online. Also, why no Gravecrawler? Geth, Lord of the Vault also goes well with the overall theme of the deck. I would suggest removing Cao Cao, Lord of Wei and Cabal Interrogator. They are both good cards, but you have several discard effects already. Plus, they must be used at sorcery speed, which can really slow down your plan, as well as forcing them to tap.

Honestly, this isn't a good zombie deck in Modern. Modern is a powerful format, and the rule of thumb is whatever you do that makes your deck powerful, you need to do it by turn 4. Affinity kills you on turn 4. Control plays Cryptic Command or wipes the board on turn 4. Storm goes off on turn 4. Deaths Shadow turns its cards on by turn 4 and lets out a stream of dudes.
You say you are a zombie deck focusing on going wide. So where are the cards that let you do that like Gravecrawler and Dread Wanderer that let you go wide with aggressive stats? Where are the lord effects to reward you for going wide?
What does Trespasser's Curse actually do against the low or creatureless decks? Where is the removal to make your stuff get in for damage or deal with threats? Why do you benefit from getting flash for 4 mana in a deck that wants to be attacking in?

I dig it. You definitely have the right idea here. Some upgrades to some of the cards you currently have in here:
I think going up to 4 Gravecrawler would help, too. Some decks have a reeeaaaally hard time dealing with it.

If you are only looking for one, then Death Baron is your best bet, although it definitely depends on your build/strategy. That said, in zombie tribal, Undead Warchief and Diregraf Captain are both very strong as well, with Cemetery Reaper and Zombie Master after that. As previously noted, if you are running Gravecrawler, then Diregraf is a must, and I'd recommend Carrion Feeder as well. Add a Phyrexian Altar, and you can infinite combo to win.
