First I recommend taking out: Havengul Runebinder, Cemetery Recruitment, Undead Alchemist, Nantuko Husk, Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher, Ashes of the Fallen, Perpetual Timepiece, Secrets of the Dead, Ancient Excavation, Murder, Compelling Deterrence, Liliana's Mastery, Obelisk of Urd, Graf Harvest, and Zombie Infestation, Ghoulcaller's Chant,
Cards that you should put in: Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Grave Pact, Unholy Grotto, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Living Death, Cryptbreaker, Death Baron, Phyrexian Reclamation, High Market, Corpse Harvester, Balthor the Defiled, Reassembling Skeleton, Skullclamp, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Zombie Apocalypse, Crypt of Agadeem, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Reliquary Tower, Bojuka Bog, Diabolic Intent, Patriarch's Bidding, and Demonic Tutor.
If you are really trying to stay Timmy with the deck, then I won't recommend Phyrexian Altar because it goes infinite with Gravecrawler and any kind of death/ETB trigger, but then again, it does it with Rooftop Storm and a sac outlet too.
Other cards that can be really good in zombies include: Sheoldred, Whispering One, Corpse Connoisseur, Zombie Trailblazer, Twilight's Call, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Demonic Collusion, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Scourge of Nel Toth, River Kelpie, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Burnished Hart, Disciple of Bolas, Harvester of Souls, Damnation, Rune-Scarred Demon, Phenax, God of Deception, Beacon of Unrest, Corpse Augur, Palace Siege, Infernal Caretaker, Contamination, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead, Dread Wanderer, Boneknitter, Grimoire of the Dead, Pontiff of Blight, Custodi Lich

Gravespawn Sovereign seems cool, I don't know if you want to go that route though. Also, Noxious Ghoul is a great card, if you're creating large quantities of zombies. Either one of these cards seems better than Custodi Lich.

Ok, first off, your deck has 2 too many cards, you'll need to cut those. Secondly, I think you'll find you have too few lands to be consistent. Next, I believe there are better zombies. Here's a few. I don't know what your budget is, so some of these may be a bit pricey.
Other card suggestions.
Skullclamp If you have Gravecrawler, it's a 2 mana draw 2.
Dictate of Erebos A good way to keep opponents locked down.
Thornbite Staff Combined with Gisa, you can keep pumping out zombies at a MUCH faster rate
Coat of Arms The ultimate buff to a tribal deck.
Hope that helps!

(Note: My playgroup is casual but with the heat turned up)
In playing AINT NO PARTY like an UNDEAD party.., I have taken a liking to getting out my general and Rooftop Storm, and then casting Sidisi, Undead Vizier, exploiting Sidisi to herself, and getting a bunch of free bodies out. I search out Possessed Skaab, Phyrexian Delver, and Gravespawn Sovereign, return sidisi to my hand, cast sidisi again. I re-use sidisi as much as I can, Including once from the general. The last thing I plop down is Gray Merchant of Asphodel for a big effect.
I'm planning on adding Gravedigger, and Sibsig Muckdraggers as additional creatures to chain together. I'm also going to add Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Phyrexian Reclamation, Havengul Lich and Panharmonicon to help enable the overall plan. Don't really want to run Ghoulraiser since it's random and my grave is likely to be somewhat full.
I was wondering if there are any creatures (they have to be zombies for it to work, since it relies on Rooftop Storm allowing me to cast for free) that I missed that have an effect like Gravedigger.
If anything else pops into your brain related to the shenanigans I'd love to hear that as well.

Cryptbreaker - Great for dumping creatures into the graveyard, making tokens, and drawing you cards.
Death Baron - Not a budget option, but highly effective.
Empty the Pits - I have a bunch of these from my Khans redemption.
Ghoulcaller Gisa - A great way to get creatures in to the bin and make a significant amount of token zombies.
Ghoulcaller's Chant - An interesting option as you can recur two zombies for one black mana.
Grave Betrayal - Similar to your commander's abilities as it steals dead creatures and makes them zombies under your control.
Graveborn Muse - Card draw FTW!!!
Gravespawn Sovereign - A spendy activated ability for an powerhouse ability.
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - Not all creatures need to fit the tribal theme as your commander makes them Zombies.
Liliana's Reaver - Token generation, discard effect, decent rate. Viable option.
Necromantic Selection A board wipe with a recursion ability.
Noosegraf Mob This card makes a ridiculous amount of zombies!
Quest for the Gravelord - An interesting, cheap, enchantment with repeatable value.
Risen Executioner - Odd Zombie Lord.
Rooftop Storm - A must in any Zombie deck.
Metallic Mimic - Lord
Vizier of Many Faces - Clones!
AND OF COURSEZombie Fanboy

Mind's Eye. A poor man's rhystic study.
Vengeful Pharaoh is also fun.
Gravespawn Sovereign for repeatable conversion.
Soulless One, just because
