Phyrexian Dreadnought, Buried Alive, and Unearth are not Modern playable cards.

You should consider Phyrexian Dreadnought

12 power, 1 mana, needs to be sacrificed as it enters the battlefield, but that is a triggered effect, so while that is on the stack you can sacrifice it to Ghoulcaller Gisa for 12 zombies, 1 card, 2 mana.

It's a bit wonky, but the Phyrexian Dreadnought is a 12/12 trampler in the regular scenario where you play it and sacrifice 6 2/2 zombie tokens.

Hahah very nice! I run a Brion Stoutarm so I have great respect for this deck!

Since your creatures die a lot Skullclamp will be great value.

Mimic Vat is sorta recursion... 3 mana for a sackable creature every turn.

You definitely want Illusionist's Bracers here, then you get twice the power for every activation!

Sort of a stretch but god is Phyrexian Dreadnought fun. Drop him for 1, sac/fling him in response to his self sacking ability.

Phyrexian Devourer + fling or Brion + kill someone!

Lifeline will get all of your sacked creatures back consistently. Might be good here!

Bloodshot Cyclops is another Flinger you might want.

I can see a place for a lot of these in here... hope some of them help!

is it possible to first boost varolz with Death's Shadow and Phyrexian Dreadnought and then sac it through Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord so your opponents lose a ton of lifes and then regenerate varolz again with all his counters?

+1 for your deck :)

As a general comment you may want to consider swapping your general over to Ghoulcaller Gisa or Geth, Lord of the Vault. Ten mana for 8 zombies seems expensive when you alternatively you could do something like sac Phyrexian Dreadnought to Ghoulcaller Gisa and make 12 zombies for a total of 7 mana. Ghoulcaller Gisa's ability is much more repeatable as well, both across turns and within the same turn when using Thousand-Year Elixir and/or Thornbite Staff. Add in Coat of Arms for extra damage and Eldrazi Monument for protection and you've got a pretty lethal zombie horde. Ghoulcaller Gisa does quickly become the target of spot removal though, so I'd be keeping that Swiftfoot Boots and maybe even adding Lightning Greaves.

Geth, Lord of the Vault builds in which you are emptying everyone's hands and filling up graveyards through cards like Mindslicer and Mindcrank, then using Geth, Lord of the Vault to steal the offerings, are even more powerful again. Although this does start to depart from being a zombie build, if that's what you're really after.

Hope that gives you some extra ideas to play with.

Pretty nice list, a couple nice includes might be Grave Titan for extra zombie production, Army of the Damned for a quick horde, and Phyrexian Dreadnought to sacrifice with Gisa and double your army!

I built a tiny leader deck around this commander, and I've had a bunch of success with it. Won a small tournament put on MTGBadWolf's. This is the deck list I'm all in! -Varolz. These were the outstanding cards in this deck.
