Since you are playing a midrange reanimator combo style SBT I would suggest Kiora's Follower and Birthing Pod. Pod puts things in your graveyard, which is good while grabbing another good card and putting it into play. Follower is just a good value creature that also gets even more value of out of pod and it does fun things with bloom tender, which should get you to T&N much faster. In my experience, it is very easy to set up the deadeye navigator and mike and trike combos with pod. Also getting access to undead sidisi and peregrine drake by podding SBT is very good. You could also add Body Double or Phyrexian Delver for a toolbox effect.

For SBT, Drift of Phantasms is strictly better than Perplex. Being able to tutor for both halves of FC combo with worldly tutor or fauna shaman is very good.

Why no Jin-Gitaxis, Core Augur?

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip checks a ton of boxes for SBT.

Here is a list of situational/low impact cards I dont think you will miss: Nyx Weaver Death Baron, Trickbind, Kessig Cagebreakers.

I think you have more than enough win conditions so the extra aggro options feel like overkill. Trickbind may be a meta call, but Swan Song is usually better imo. Nyx weaver is much weaker than baby jace imo.

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.

Yooo Tamino!

This deck looks pretty sweet -- I've wanted to build a Zombie/Mill deck for awhile but never got around to it, so here are some suggestions for you. If you want to mill, you should definitely try to do it in large swaths at a time so that you see a lot of resources in the yard at once. Tutors become less effective in mill strategies because they see less and less as your strategy progresses: imagine Fabricate-ing for Ashnod's Altar only to find that you milled it from the top 5 of your deck. As a result, your tutors should be focused on getting things back from the yard and not from the deck.

Some cuts I would make as well as explanations:

Treasure Cruise is a nice card here for the cost reduction, but I think you'd want to play a different draw spell more often than not. My replacement of choice would be Reprocess or Graveborn Muse. If you just want unconditional draw, Frantic Search or Ancient Excavation to throw things in the yard might be nice.

Perpetual Timepiece is a nice piece of tech, but if you consider that milling yourself uses resources, it seems counter-productive to use the tap effect to shuffle things back into the library. How about Trading Post for a reusable effect? (sorry, Goats are a flavor fail)

What are we doing with Basalt Monolith here? Would definitely swap this for Fellwar Stone unless you have a way to combo with the monolith.

Academy Ruins is nice in the main board -- consider Buried Ruin as well.

Fabricate out for Fortuitous Find.

Sakura-Tribe Elder for Nature's Lore or Kodama's Reach.

Cuts: Graf Harvest doesn't do enough, Green Sun's Zenith seems pretty limited here, Profane Command sounds good on paper, but doesn't ever feel like it does enough to justify a spot in the 99, Nyx Weaver can only be used once and feels like a worse Eternal Witness.

Suggestions: Cultivate, Zombie Apocalypse, Army of the Damned, Rise of the Dark Realms, Dralnu, Lich Lord, Pull from the Deep, Prized Amalgam, Noxious Ghoul, Withered Wretch, Ghoulcaller's Chant, Door of Destinies (for Gravecrawler shenanigans), Grimoire of the Dead, Secrets of the Dead, Call to the Grave, Unholy Grotto, Patriarch's Bidding, Seasons Past

-1 Corpse Connoisseur (Entomb felt better and can get you off to a great early start).

-1 Nyx Weaver (While has great synergy with Sidisi, is definitely less powerful than anything else).

-1 Ghost Quarter (Deck wanted ramp and I'm comfortable with 36 lands)

-1 Whip of Erebos (Exiling something always felt like too big a cost)

-1 Jarad's Orders (Effect replaced with Entomb and I couldn't really think of a card I wanted in my hand that I wouldn't rather just have in the yard, although maybe Big Game Hunter)

+1 Deathrite Shaman (Creature and ramp, gets a big tick of approval! Plenty of lands in the yard for redundancy. If it really screws over the Worm Harvest plan I'll reconsider.)

+1 Entomb (This is a reanimate deck, this guy and a reanimate in the opener is a big game!).

+1 Birthing Pod (Sacrificing creatures is great! Getting more powerful creatures from that is great).

+1 Dosan the Falling Leaf (Makes the Laboratory Maniac a more reliable win-con on your turn)

+1 Brutalizer Exarch (Tutors where you can dredge it into the yard or draw it is awesome and so is tucking annoying permanants. Deck does feel low-ish on removal for a black deck to he helps.)

I already have Codex Shredder, but Nyx Weaver is all but tailor-made for the deck. Definitely added!

You would probably benefit from having some way of getting a Mortal Combat out of your graveyard, so you can have access to it if you mill one: Nyx Weaver or Den Protector maybe.

Here are my suggestions:

Nyx Weaver is a pretty good card to mill yourself with every turn, and then tutor back something in your graveyard.

If you dump your whole library into your graveyard, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord can be brought back to your hand by sacrificing a couple lands, ready to smash face for a whole lot of damage. He's a zombie, too.

Splinterfright does double duty as a beatstick and self-mill. He also has trample, which ensures you'll be coming through for a lot of damage.

Havengul Lich is an incredible card that can be used to bring back a combo piece (Mikeaus or Tatterkite come to mind), and is generally a pain for enemies to deal with.

Gisa and Geralf lets you cast value zombies from your graveyard, as well as provide an etb self-mill effect.

Splendid Reclamation is a nice sorcery that can grab all those lands that you've milled.
