I would recommend as another great combo, Pitiless Plunderer + Reassembling Skeleton (which you have in your deck already) and Ashnod's Altar with something like Blood Artist or Impact Tremors to go infinite. try it out! (you do not need to though.

Sooo what do you want for this deck? Do you need token producers? If that is the route you want to go down, there are some other cards you should look at:
More aristocrats. You are in the right colors for these, so this shouldn't be hard to fill out. Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Falkenrath Noble; I think there might be some red ones that make the creature itself deal damage to any target? If so, those should be an auto include what with the assassins having deathtouch.
As far as actual tokens go, it seems you mostly have one-off effects; if you want more of these, you should look for cards that get you tokens with a high amount of efficiency. If you had enough mana rocks and stuff like that I would suggest Kuldotha Rebirth, but for now I don't think that is going to do it as often as you want. Probably you want stuff like Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder, Hordeling Outburst, etc. for this category.
In terms of token producing that recursively gives you value, I would suggest Assemble the Legion for sure; also, maybe Ophiomancer (expensive but very good with a sacrifice outlet) and any of the Goonies would be good, though technically they aren't tokens, they just come back a lot (Reassembling Skeleton, Nether Traitor, Bloodsoaked Champion, Bloodghast, Tenacious Dead, either Squee would work). If you really do want tokens to come out and be there at the same time and start to build up a board state with them, you should probably use ... well, I dunno, you're in white. Figure it out.
Also, one last thing: Cathars' Crusade.
In terms of what to cut, I would look reaaally hard at the top of your curve. I would probably drop Gravewaker at least. I think Necrotic Hex is probably good in your deck, because you have so many creatures, but just in general I think it's better in a deck that actually cares about either the word "sacrifice" or the zombies for being zombies rather than the zombies being bodies. Lena seems bad here, I don't know how many nontoken creatures you'll have. I think Crush Contraband could get cut for more efficient removal, maybe Anguished Unmaking or Utter End if you want a budget version. Moan of the Unhallowed is ... straight up bad I think.
Let me know if these were helpful or if you need more cuts.

hudsonw Sorry about the late response.
I cut Reassembling Skeleton because it was often a dead draw and slots are tight. It's one of those cards that has potential to come back in, though. I've just been shifting a bit more towards a few control slots based on meta needs. As for Extraplanar Lens, it's a card I felt was too risky for what it does.

Sweet deck! Can I ask why the limited amount of recursion? All I really saw was Athreos, God of Passage and Luminous Broodmoth. I could be blind though XD. Also did you think about adding Reassembling Skeleton? It would go infinite with Teysa, Pitiless Plunderer, and a free sac outlet

Cards like Reassembling Skeleton might be nice if you’re going for repeated sac. I can list more if you’re interested.

I like the list, seems like a lot of fun.
Maybe more creatures that can recur along the lines of Tenacious Dead? Gravecrawler, Bloodsoaked Champion, maybe Gutterbones I suppose that's to your hand but at least Judith and a lot of other effects in your deck enable its return ability. I could be wrong but I can see the engine running out of steam if you miss out on your Reassembling Skeleton to enable consistent use of your sac effects.
But the deck looks very fun and fast, cheers.

Just a few more; Season of the Witch, Black Cat, Bubbling Cauldron, Disturbed Burial, Desecrated Tomb, Reassembling Skeleton, Ghosts of the Damned, Haunted Crossroads,Gallows at Willow Hill, Bad Moon.
Can go to the gatherer and look for creature types like werewolf, zombie, scarecrow.
Or keywords like haunted, dead, grim, blood, etc.
