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

As you can probably tell from my profile name, I have a thing for the more sciencey of the Cecani twins. I've finally gotten around to building a deck based around Stitcher Geralf, running leviathans and other high power creatures to lvl up the zombies, but they still end up underwhelming due to they not having any abilities other than being fat. Can you help with cards that give them useful abilities or keywords, such as Levitation? Sadly all the fun Zombie synergy is never in mono blue (cept Undead Alchemist, who doesn't work with geralf, and Havengul Runebinder).

For reanimation, Ghoulcaller's Chant, Cemetery Recruitment, and Wander in Death are both useful. Bontu's Monument can also help you keep your life where you need it. And while the Colossus can't reanimate itself, the constant supply of tokens more than outweighs it. For a bit more control, Compelling Deterrence is a zombie staple. If you want even more toys, an Esper ()zombie deck is now viable thanks to Amonkhet. If you'd like, you can check out my take on it here: Standard Esper Zombies. Drownyard Temple is nice cause you can always discard it and then return it to the battlefield. Dark Salvation is a bit situational, but it might prove useful. Gempalm Polluter is a great late-game wincon, along with Grey Merchant of Asphodel. Havengul Runebinder could also be interesting. Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip is expensive, but well worth saving for. Necromancer's Stockpile is probably better than Pulse of the Grid for card draw and creature advantage. And, of course, Rooftop Storm is a classic. Unbreathing Horde and Undead Alchemist are my final suggestions for a . Hope this helps!

Hi! I have some ideas. At first: lands. Sorry, but 27 lands aren't enough. I also run B/U Zombies with Gisa and Geralf and I use 37. Then creatures. I'm not sure about Havengul Runebinder. Gisa and Geralf lets you to cast creatures from your graveyard so exiling them is not a good tactics. Even if it gives +1/+1 counters to each of your Zombies. I would also make some replacements.
Body Double: there are better shapeshifters.
Stitcher Geralf: he doesn't fit this deck much.
Evil Twin: it's better than Body Double. By the way Clever Impersonator is even much better - you may copy any permanent (creatures, artifacts, planeswalkers etc.)
Ghoulcaller Gisa: her ability works well with your commander. Sacrifice a creature, put tokens, then cast the sacrificed creature from your graveyard - what do you think?
Endless Ranks of the Dead: it's really funny to swarm the table with 2/2 Zombies each turn.
Necromancer's Stockpile: another useful enchantment. Card draw + 2/2 Zombie token each turn.
Phyrexian Arena and Underworld Connections: you really need draw engines. Necropotence is even better but it won't work in this deck 'cause it exiles your discarded cards. I hope my recommendations were useful.
Check out my deck Twins of Innistrad (B/U Zombies and Shapeshifters) - maybe you'll find something interesting. Good luck!

Personally I recommend Sedris, (maybe even his buddy Thraximundar) But the colour advantage you get is really nice, and the addition of blue gives you a lot of cool/fun options. Like for example Havengul Runebinder, Stitcher Geralf, Gisa and Geralf, Diregraf Captain, and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born. Red even splashes in some fun with Deathbringer Thoctar, Warstorm Surge, Goblin Bombardment, Impact Tremors, and even some fun thievery like Zealous Conscripts. Heck red even throws in the addition of Artifact removal, something Black and blue lack in. Vandalblast, Rakdos Charm, and By Force would all be nice additions.

Pontiff of Blight does fit in your commander colors as . Also have you considered Zombie Trailblazer, Deathmark Prelate, Empty the Pits, Grave Defiler, Havengul Runebinder, Call to the Grave, Corpse Harvester, Necromaster Dragon, Noxious Ghoul, Gempalm Polluter, Grave Titan, Vengeful Dead, Custodi Lich, Scourge of Nel Toth, Corpse Augur, Crypt Ghast, Raving Dead, Lim-Dul's Vault, Patriarch's Bidding, or Westvale Abbey Flip.
