Thank you for the breakdown and help with the mana and tempo curves.I love the suggestions you made for this build, even though they are a bit expensive :P, but I know it will be worth it in the end.
I added the lands,
replaced x4 Black Cat -> Thoughtseize
replaced x4 Belltower Sphinx -> Jace's Phantasm
replaced x3 Lich Lord of Unx -> Archive Trap
replaced x2 Consuming Aberration -> Inquisition of Kozilek
I see Grisly Spectacle is CMC heavy to play for an instant, I just like the idea that I can remove high threat targets from the board now and then, I'm going to have a look around if I can't spot something that might work better, bang for buck.
Thank you for your time and suggestions, really appreciate it.

Heya! Let me break this down for ya! :)
I feel like Grisly Spectacle costs a bit too much for instant speed removal, even though it does mill. I would definitely try to add Archive Trap to the list somewhere! Replace the 4x Black Cat with either 4x Thoughtseize or 4x Inquisition of Kozilek as they remove a precise card like a wincon, etc.
If you ever need to cut things, I would cut out the higher CMC spells, as they are too slow for the modern format. -3 Lich Lord of Unx -4 Belltower Sphinx -2 Consuming Aberration and add in 2-4x Archive Trap 4x Jace's Phantasm and 1-3 of either Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek, whichever you didn't use to replace Black Cat.
Hope this helped!

Zombie Tribal is Best Tribal! Your list looks very solid :) I really like zombies, so I have a few suggestions: Nightscape Familiar is awesome for getting out your blue guys earlier. Lord of the Undead is a great and very OG lord. Cryptbreaker is an amazing 1-drop that does wonders for your graveyard. Dralnu, Lich Lord is risky but soooo good for getting value out of your spells. Lich Lord of Unx has a lot of versatility. Necromancer's Stockpile is a bloody musthave for zombs. Grimoire of the Dead plays in nicely with your graveyard-game :) .... I'm basically feeding you My OG Zombies-deck, but hey, they're good cards :)
Blue has the funniest bit of removal: Reality Shift :P
Stay frosty, dude :)

There are plenty of cool zombie synergy cards to be had across lots of expansions. Getting a couple more Diregraf Captain will of course help the main theme.
Nightmare will probably be cut as soon as you have something else, as only 1/3 of your lands power it up. Save it for a mono black deck.
Negate is likely one of your best counter spell options. Using black spells to kill creatures.
And keep an eye out for awesome "zombie cares" cards like Lich Lord of Unx if you can get them.

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

Meren of Clan Nel Toth and Ezuri, Claw of Progress might make good additions to your deck. Brawn and Wonder both make great cards to discard or let Sidisi, Brood Tyrant mill and get their abilities.Morbid Curiosity with some of your Grave Pact type of cards could mean a great value. Novijen, Heart of Progress seems like good deck tech. High Market is a good way for you to get a little life back. Blighted Woodland is actually better than it looks. Perpetual Timepiece helps with your self mill. Elixir of Immortality in case you go too hard on the self mill. The Gitrog Monster because he's annoying af. Nyx Weaver more graveyard manipulation. Massacre Wurm is good. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord possible win con. Gisa and Geralf need to be able to use your graveyard as a resource. Zombie Apocalypse. Deadbridge Chant let's you use your graveyard as resource.Mikaeus, the Unhallowed so good. Risen Executioner another buff on a stick. Splinterfright more self mill. Evanescent Intellect let's sidisi mill without swinging. Extractor Demon could give you self mill your help you mill out an opponent.Mirror-Mad Phantasm and Hermit Druid both synergize well with sidisi. Laboratory Maniac as a safety net if you go too hard. Empty the Pits 4 mana plus your whole graveyard at an opponents end step could be stupid crazy. Eternal Witness grabbing what you need from your graveyard. Blood Artist makes all of those toekns even scarier as they are 2 point swings no matter what. Mesmeric Orb just have everyone mill. See the Unwritten this could do some work for you. Pharika's Mender another way to grab something from your graveyard. Deadwood Treefolk same as last card. Phyrexian Reclamation. Dig Through Time. Recollect. Praetor's Counsel all make your graveyard resource. Cellar Door. Eldrazi Monument. Distant Melody.Gaea's Blessing. Jarad's Orders.Unbreathing Horde. Lich Lord of Unx.

It is completely possible to build a UB zombie/spirit control deck but I'm not sure how competitive it would be. Just did a quick search and (within modern) other than Soul Separator, Graveborn Muse, and Haunted Dead, there isn't a large intersection between the two tribes
I've seen some decent UW spirit control decks before using Geist of Saint Traft, Spell Queller, Mausoleum Wanderer, Rattlechains and Selfless Spirit with some other removal, cantrips, and counterspells as backup. Spell queller is so good in spirit control I almost wonder if it would make sense to do U/W/B instead, the problem is it would make your mana pretty awkward.
As for zombies, I could see a deck that grinds people out in the long game with Endless Ranks of the Dead, Lich Lord of Unx, and Graveborn Muse. Also a lot of people forget that Undead Warchief is the only one of its cycle to be modern legal (thank you time spiral block)
Putting them together though might be a bit tricky as the zombie cards don't care about spirits and visa versa. Definitely doable if you want to commit to flavor though.
There exist lords in both tribes:
Also soulshift and much of the kamigawa block had a spirits theme across all 5 colors. The soulshift mechanic might be nice (some of the better ones were in green imo). Here's an example of soulshift: Thief of Hope
Zombies: Diregraf Captain, Cemetery Reaper, Diregraf Colossus (technically not a lord but close enough), Undead Warchief, Death Baron(not the best for budget reasons), Lord of the Undead and Risen Executioner
Also bonus flavor points if you run Zombie Apocalypse
Sorry if his wasn't as straight forward as you were looking for. I think I rambled a bit. Does this help or were you looking for something else?
