ill be updating a little, so you can change out Mortify for Vindicate now you can keep them both in, i love my control, it is amazing ! but the ability to destroy target permanent for the exact same cost... amazing ! i dont see Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares if money is an issue just get Swords to Plowshares very cheep very good !, if you can have the option to exile rather then Destroy choose exile to many people run indestructible.
Reveillark oh Reveillark, Reveillark ,Reveillark is amazing i love him he works wonders with Karmic Guide both are really strong in there own right even more so when his P/T is 2/2 "my commander says you come back, and you come back and you come too ! lol.
nice small cards fro protections that can be reanimated Selfless Spirit never failed me ! can sac at instant speed and save alot of hassle ! - Sun Titan great animated and great card - Devout Chaplain only matters on how much humans you have on final build, but it has saved me alot so if you have an extra spot and maybe like 8+ humans throw him in - Ashnod's Altar with reanimation i love to have a sac outlet that produces mana ! i love this - Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip okay this card, is a creature, easy to kill off, and turn into a planeswalker, +1 keeping your card advantage, with all that draw this shouldn't hurt you, -X reanimate again ! can be brought back if dead by your commander revlark or Karmatic because it goes back as a 2/3 creature to your graveyard ! and can be searched in your deck as a creature !

My Meren duel commander deck started out much the same way, a budget deck based on the pre-con with a couple dozen cards I had lying around that fit the deck and has grown from there. I am going to throw a couple of cards I think you might want to run in no particular order but feel free to take a look at my deck and make some comparisons.
For a start I would look at your instant-speed removal. Fatal Push, Dismember, Abrupt Decay, Go for the Throat and Smother are all cards I would run in any duel commander deck in golgari colours though Smother only really gets good once you are in a competitive meta where fast games keep the average CMC of creatures low enough to keep Smother relevant.
Since you are already running Buried Alive/Jarad's Orders and Victimize I strongly suggest you run Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion as a way win the game on the spot. Mike and trike are individually powerful cards and mike especially synergies very well with most of what a Meren deck is trying to do in general. More often than not you don't even need Trike to win with Mike in play. Another great wincon for Meren is Blood Artist.
Overall I think you creature count is a bit low, though I can understand that you are making room for stax pieces. In no particular order take a look at Lotleth Troll, Scavenging Ooze, Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip, Wood Elves and Thragtusk. Each one of those creatures are all-stars in my deck.
I worked out after much testing that cutting all non-creature mana acceleration was the way to go, but your mileage may vary.

Hard to say since there's a lot of synergy in your deck and honestly it depends on your meta, Stromgald Crusader seems pretty mana intensive for what he does. Metallic Mimic and Adaptive Automaton interrupt the zombie recurrence theme going on, cards like Diregraf Colossus don't benefit them being in the graveyard.
Blood Scrivener is a debatable one, while at low CMC and added card draw it depends how often you have 0 cards in hand, other than that I couldn't tell you what creatures to cut.
This is where your meta comes into play, personally I would cut most target removal, in a 4 player free for all if you 1-for-1 with an opponent your other 2 opponents are now up a card(however can save you from infinite combos and such) so it's a tough call to make. That being said I would cut Tragic Slip since you can't control morbid on other peoples turns and maybe Slaughter Pact depending on how often you verse other black decks.
Other than that I couldn't recommend anything else to cut your deck seems solid to me.
Edit: here are some other cards I found that go well with your decks synergy:
Cryptbreaker card draw
Call to the Grave control
Dictate of Erebos control
Potential yet high CMC sweepers

Rotting Rats I think would be better. Again, the ETB thing is nice and Unearth gives you another way to get them in. Stronghold Rats is another card, since it will be guaranteed to hit. Sure its not "at random", but it also fuels yourself. I really like Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip. One really fun thing I did was sac Viscera Seer to itself, flip Lilly, then used her -X to return Seer. Or I mean you can do stuff like this at EOT, flip her and then hopefully use the +2 rather than the minus.

Hey, I have a very not budget list for gisa and geralf but it's full of combos if you need any ideas:Life is Milling Me.
My suggestions from your list are to be careful adding Noxious Ghoul since it kills your commander. I like Living Death as a board wipe instead. Also Stitcher Geralf and Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip could be replaced imo.

Some cards from modern/standard that are popular in zombie decks I might have forgotten some, but I havent played zombie in a damn while.

The command zone is not the battlefield. Abilities of permanents do not normally function there, unless the either specifically say so (like Derevi, Empyrial Tactician) or effect how you cast spells (like Akroma, Angel of Fury). With Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip, if she's on the battlefield and another creature you control dies, her ability will trigger and tell you to exile it. You may choose to either exile it or put it in your command zone, but either way it will return to the battlefield as the result of the same ability. Under no circumstance can Liliana, Defiant Necromancer Flip be in your command zone, as sending it there as a planeswalker will just turn it face up again. Even if it could be a planeswalker there, you would not be able to use any of its abilities, as it wouldn't be a permanent, and you wouldn't be able to cast it, because it wouldn't have a casting cost. Nothing can target a card in the command zone, but the only thing you'd be able to do with it anyways would be cast it, so that's not a huge issue.
If your commander would be put into your hand, you may choose to put it in the command zone instead, but you usually shouldn't. The commander tax only applies based on how many times you've cast it from the command zone, and only applies when casting it from there, so casting it from your hand avoids the tax entirely. If you cast it from your hand nothing special happens, you won't have to send it back the the command zone or anything odd. Command tax acts as a normal additional cost, and standard cost reduction can be applied to it. If you've already cast Geist of Saint Traft twice and control an Urza's Incubator set to spirit and a Conduit of Ruin, casting Traft from the command zone will cost as long as it's your first creature spell for the turn.
