While signets are good, you'd consider mana dorks over rocks. Sidisi triggers, cheaper to cast, ect.
You have a lot of ways to trigger Sidisi, which while not bad, means you're relying a ton on her. You may lack interaction or not do much besides trigger her. I'd look to try the deck with a couple less interactions or a way to put your graveyard back into the deck. Things like Stinkweed Imp, with dredge 5, can add up pretty quickly.
Noxious Revival is pretty handy.
I think Rot Farm Skeleton is too expensive compared to your other options.
Ashnod's Altar is good ramp with zombie tokens.

Before I start, just want to say this looks like a cool deck. It looks pretty promising.
First of all, 41 lands is a bit too many. Depending on the deck, the normal recommended amount is 36-39. Your deck is fairly low-cost, so I would recommend 37 or 38.
Reap is super situational and you shouldn't play it unless you know there's a big presence of black in your playgroup.
Take out Seedtime unless you're playing against a counterspell deck. It barely ever actually works.
Take out Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest. It's just not a good card, even in a deck like this. I have a Meren deck and Mazirek never had any impact.
Take out Ghoultree. By the time you have enough creatures in your graveyard to play it cheaper, it won't matter as much. Also, a 10/10 vanilla isn't really the best play considering all the crazy shenanigans you can start up with this deck.
I recommend taking out Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. Although it's a fine card, if you're looking to cut cards Jarad just doesn't perform as well as most others.
I would take out Kiora's Follower because I don't really see enough cards in the deck where it helps that much.
Take out Phyrexian Plaguelord. It's just a bad card.
I would take out Rot Farm Skeleton because it's a bit too expensive to work as pillow fort, and there are better ways to fill your graveyard.
Take out Scourge of Nel Toth. It doesn't really have any impact in a commander game.
Take out Zameck Guildmage. It doesn't have enough synergy with the deck.
Take out Thornbite Staff. Once again, it's just a bad card. It costs an absurd amount of mana to do anything useful with it.
This is just my opinion, so feel free to take it with a grain of salt. Have fun!

As Epoch said abilities only function on the battlefield or from the zone that they say they do. For example suspend (Search for Tomorrow) can be activated from your hand; Rot Farm Skeleton's ability can be activated from the graveyard; and Misthollow Griffin has a static ability that works in exile.
In Commander 2013 one of the cycles of generals was "command zone matters". Two of the cards had abilities that work from the command zone. Derevi, Empyrial Tactician had an activated ability that could be activated from the command zone. Oloro, Ageless Ascetic had a triggered ability that operated from the command zone. The other three had abilities that scaled with the amount of mana spent on them, making commander tax in some way a benefit.

thanks, but I have already exhausted all the 'can't be countered' things. I even tried a bunch of other phrases to expose more. Things like the Rot Farm Skeleton for example are beyond not being countered text for example. That's what I am after. Something more creative. The options for not being countered kinda suck really...

so current list in order of concept:

AEther Vial is cool! forgot about that thing cause it just 'puts' crap into play. not cast.
but again for the other stuff... perhaps. Issue is simply counters. Unless you go first, they will have two mana for a leak. Somethign not turn dependent is better. Like AEther Vial. Its 1 cost, so i mean, just plop it out there. In sideboard run:
4x AEther Vial
looking in terms of graveyard casting like Gravecrawler i found:
Reassembling Skeleton: well, its a pound of flesh right?
Sedraxis Specter: discard! you cast, they counter. you unearth, they have to remove or discard. good I think. minimum 2-1 trade in your favor.
Rot Farm Skeleton: really good damage and repeatable! Also would get other sideboard into graveyard if a good portion of sideboard is focused on graveyard persistence.
Bloodghast: easily repeatable
what do you guys think? any other thoughts? just thoughts are cool like subrosian above. (thanks!)
