You can replace Quest for the Gravelord with Rooftop Storm for starters. It may be only one mana, but its effects are not very good since a single flicker effect will erase the 5/5 token. Cemetery Reaper should replace Ghoulcaller's Accomplice since Reaper's ability is instant speed, so you can respond to a reanimation target from an opponent's grave. The Scarab God is the exact same CMC as Possessed Skaab, and has it's own natural recursion. Grave Titan should replace Grixis Slavedriver when you get the opportunity as the titan makes twice as many zombies for simply entering the battlefield, and attacking.

Being printed in a Duel Deck doesn't make a card standard legal, though being printed in a Planeswalker deck does. Quest for the Gravelord is from original Zendikar, and is not standard legal. Ob Nixilis Reignited is from Battle for Zendikar block, which is standard legal until late September.

I have just double checked whats in my deck from the Ob Nixilis dual deck. It is only the Quest for the Gravelord and Ob Nixilis Reignited. I was finally able to find out to which exact block they belong and they are both from the Zendikar block. SO if they have that dual set symbol on them, but are also available in the zendikar block they should be fine, right?

I took out Dark Ritual and Immortal Servitude for the same reason. I just wasn't getting the use out of them. This I added Dark Prophecy for is card advantage that plays well with all of the sacrifice as well, two more Quest for the Gravelords for the amount of death as well and threw in Gray Merchant of Asphodel due to the black

Cryptbreaker - Great for dumping creatures into the graveyard, making tokens, and drawing you cards.

Death Baron - Not a budget option, but highly effective.

Empty the Pits - I have a bunch of these from my Khans redemption.

Ghoulcaller Gisa - A great way to get creatures in to the bin and make a significant amount of token zombies.

Ghoulcaller's Chant - An interesting option as you can recur two zombies for one black mana.

Grave Betrayal - Similar to your commander's abilities as it steals dead creatures and makes them zombies under your control.

Graveborn Muse - Card draw FTW!!!

Gravespawn Sovereign - A spendy activated ability for an powerhouse ability.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - Not all creatures need to fit the tribal theme as your commander makes them Zombies.

Liliana's Reaver - Token generation, discard effect, decent rate. Viable option.

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip - All the value :).

Lim-Dul the Necromancer - Spendy, but another redundant stealing effect . I would consider Clone and Mind Control effects also!

Necromantic Selection A board wipe with a recursion ability.

Noosegraf Mob This card makes a ridiculous amount of zombies!

Oath of Liliana - A decent Diabolic Edict effect with an upside for adding more Liliana's. Overall the oath and the PW's are vulnerable.

Quest for the Gravelord - An interesting, cheap, enchantment with repeatable value.

Risen Executioner - Odd Zombie Lord.

Rooftop Storm - A must in any Zombie deck.

Metallic Mimic - Lord

Adaptive Automaton

Unbreathing Horde

Vizier of Many Faces - Clones!

Waste Not

AND OF COURSEZombie Fanboy

solarPULSAR I considered that, but that would make me commit to a full Blood Artist + Zulaport Cutthroat deck, and that isn't my goal. I have Smallpox in there for creature removal, since i don't mind losing a creature. If i did want to take that route though the deck would be completely different with inclusions of Mortician Beetle and possibly Quest for the Gravelord in there.

Why Quest for the Gravelord? and only 1 Nighthawk? There are a lot of cool vampires out there. I run a nontraditional Vampire deck based around Vampire Nocturnus but the others are pretty traditional. I went Rakdos instead of mono-black for Stromkirk Captain who combos nicely with Vampire Nighthawk and Gifted Aetherborn. Deathtouch/First Strike is impenetrable defense! Check it out if you want, Vampires are a fun Tribal deck to play.
