Target player puts the top X cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard. If Increasing Confusion was cast from a graveyard, that player puts twice that many cards into his or her graveyard instead.
Flashback XU (You may cast this card from your graveyard for its flashback cost. Then exile it.)

There's no better feeling than casting it for 10+ mana from the graveyard!
My best suggestion is to convert this into a Grimgrin, Corpse-Born deck so you can run both Geralf and Ghoulcaller Gisa while keeping your option to play all of these zombies intact, (and giving you access to much more powerful synergy in a second color).
This deck has large potential to take your mill theme much further. Adding some cheap infinite mana combos/ mana generation engines gives you access to some explosive milling spells. + + gives you access to infinite blue mana. Adding in + in place of the Sages and Training Grounds will turn your lotus into an infinite mana battery of any color. Options also exist with + + to produce large amounts of black mana useful for X spells such as Mind Grind , Increasing Confusion , Diabolic Revelation , Mind Spring etc.
Should you decide to run Mono-Blue, cards such as Frozen AEther and Dissipation Field are shoe-ins as they offer not only large disruption to many different potential game-enders but also targets for countermagic/removal that might otherwise be spent on your win-conditions. Think about incorporating Altar of the Brood over Jace's Erasure , it's strictly better.
There are plenty more Zombie Lords and bonuses available to you than some of the subpar one's you're currently listing. Obelisk of Urd , Adaptive Automaton , Door of Destinies and Coat of Arms are all viable options that are much stronger than your Hall of Triumph could ever hope to be.
Helm of Obedience + Rest in Peace is a pretty fun alternate win-con in Legacy that sees a lot of play. Probably so good because all the pieces can be fetched by Enlightened Tutor . ALL THE COMBOS!!!! is my version of that deck.
What's Master Transmuter doing for you in here? Drift of Phantasms is for the transmute, which is fine. But remember that transmute is sorcery speed only, so it will pretty much take your whole turn, and unless it's late game it will take most of your available mana too. Blue Sun's Zenith doesn't fit in here, you only have 21 lands so you'll never get very good draw on it. To get 3 draw you have to spend 6 mana, which this deck will have a hard time getting to without the combo in play, and there are a lot more efficient spells than this to draw 3 cards. I understand that if you have your unlimited combo out then it's great, but if you have it out then you should be going for the win with Increasing Confusion and not trying to draw your whole library. You may need more early game control too. Cards like Spell Pierce and Spell Snare are great 2 of's. 4x Remand can help you get to your combo pieces faster while delaying the opponent. Also, I'd add in an extra land, and if you want to keep the Blue Sun's Zenith then run in 3-4 Reliquary Tower so you can draw more than just a couple cards w/out having to discard. Alternate win-con decks are a blast, glad to see you going for something original. You may want to consider a second win-con though incase someone removes all the Increasing Confusion from the game with cards like Surgical Extraction . That's a common side-board that would just wreck this deck.
I have updated some things. And am interested in Increasing Confusion But what to replace it with?
with either Increasing Confusion
or Deep Analysis
. Combo should go:
Double trigger your cheap flashback spell.
Trigger a 1 mana spell like Lightning Bolt or Serum Visions .
Bit harder to do but... Do-able with around 7 mana if you use Increasing Confusion as the flashback card
