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.

Lord of the Undead

Undead Warchief

Corpse Harvester

Geth, Lord of the Vault

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

Relentless Dead

Phyrexian Crusader

Death Baron

Gravespawn Sovereign

Zombie Master

Risen Executioner

Scourge of Nel Toth

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!

maxon on Abusing sidisi undead vizier and ...

(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.

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip - All the value :).

Lim-Dul the Necromancer - Spendy, but another redundant stealing effect . I would consider Clone and Mind Control effects also!

Necromantic Selection A board wipe with a recursion ability.

Noosegraf Mob This card makes a ridiculous amount of zombies!

Oath of Liliana - A decent Diabolic Edict effect with an upside for adding more Liliana's. Overall the oath and the PW's are vulnerable.

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

Adaptive Automaton

Unbreathing Horde

Vizier of Many Faces - Clones!

Waste Not

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

I am curious, how has cards worked for you in the deck:

Stronghold Assassin, Unbreathing Horde, Raving Dead,Noosegraf Mob,Phyrexian Crusader,Gravespawn Sovereign,Helldozer.

I am most curious to see how Noosegraf Mob works in a this deck. The design is a little odd, but it could be potentially useful considering you get zombies with or with Ghoulcaller Gisa.

looks like a solid deck! I have a couple ideas that i hope will improve your deck!

Nephalia Academy, Radiant Fountain and Waterveil Cavern could be upgraded, maybe Terramorphic Expanse, Nephalia Drownyard, Drownyard Temple, Bojuka Bog

Chronic Flooding, Corpse Churn, Strategic Planning, Forbidden Alchemy, Mesmeric Orb could be a clever way of adding cards to the graveyard

Sol Ring is a stable in commander, more mana rocks? Dimir Signet, Worn Powerstone, Gilded Lotus

Raise Dead dosen't seem strong enough. maybe Beacon of Unrest?

Exhume, Gnawing Zombie, Grave Peril, Gravepurge, Moan of the Unhallowed could be possible cuts

Secrets of the Dead is awesome! maybe swap for or add River Kelpie as well!

Fleshbag Marauder is super good!

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is great!

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon seems out of place

Rise from the Tides seems out of place as well

Call to the Grave is very good

Death Baron, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Gravespawn Sovereign, Lich Lord of Unx, Lord of the Undead, Noxious Ghoul are some zombies that i think could improve your deck!

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet isn't a zombie but makes them and provides a good effect for commander!

Maybe add a some sources of life gain as well, Whip of Erebos is a good one

Havengul Lich is amazing with Rooftop Storm!
