Training Grounds is super good with this commander. Necromancer's Stockpile offers some good cycling power. Gisa and Geralf offer some good utility. Grave Defiler is good draw power. Herald's Horn card draw + cost reduction. Obelisk of Urd offers a large board buff.

Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, and From Under the Floorboards are just decent cards that can generate more zombies.

You clearly don't care about discarding cards as much as most of your opponents do so maybe a Rotting Rats.

Also seems like you could use a bit more removal. Perhaps Price of Fame, Victim of Night, Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, and Kindred Dominance

As what Beluga says, consider adding in more ramp as well as ways to abuse your commander as well. If you are going to be adding in a lot of artifact mana than try adding in Paradox Engine to go get some unreal amount of mana. If you are going for more of the tribal Fairie route, add more effects that buffs up your Faeries. KayneMarco already listed some great cards here might be some other ones as well:

Obelisk of Urd

Favorable Winds

Akroma's Memorial

Hope that helps!

Goblin Trashmaster is really good when you have tons of goblins out, plus it makes the deck more interactive. Also, consider Obelisk of Urd as it can be cast for free sometimes and has a huge payoff.

I would recommend the following cards, assuming you are going for a mono black tribal zombie deck

Death Baron - deathtouch is cool

Grave Titan - not a zombie himself, but a great generator of them

Lord of the Undead - Bump and graveyard return

Undead Warchief - Cheaper and more painful zombies

Diregraf Colossus - Speaks for itself

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - Give's everything but humans you control undying (and is a zom)

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip - Speaks for itself

Plague Belcher - Neat Lad

Call to the Grave - Probably never leaves the battlefield via sac, totally ruins opponents board presence until they can destroy it

A Doom Blade or Fatal Push couldn't hurt either

Some Tribal necessities too:

Coat of Arms

Cavern of Souls - Though if money is tight don't even bother

Obelisk of Urd

Door of Destinies

Herald's Horn

That's all I can think of for now, let me know if you want more recommendations for cards to add. As for the cards you currently have, I would recommend the following:

Remove Liliana's Mastery - 5 Mana for a bump and zombie, seems to me like there are better options

Replace Thoughtseize with Duress if money is a concern.

Remove Patriarch's Bidding - It's a cool card, but you have better ways to bring your stuff back (like Zombie Apocalypse for one more , and it also allows tribal opponents to come back. Also $$$$$$$

Surprised you aren't running Obelisk of Urd or Mutavault.

have you thought about The Immortal Sun or Obelisk of Urd? I know immortal is nonbo with your tezzeret, but I feel it deserves a look. I personally like the idea of finding more ways to buff the thopters. Metallic Mimic, Gravitational Shift, Favorable Winds are all nice thopter buffers.

I have been testing Obelisk of Urd. Works best with Shimmer Myr. A Surprise 3/3 flying army can close out a game fast. Even if you don't go for obelisk(nonbo with sword of the meek), the Myr seems pretty solid for this build.
