Creature — Zombie Avatar
Soulless One's power and toughness are each equal to the number of Zombies on the battlefield plus the number of Zombie cards in all graveyards.

Gempalm Polluter is a necessity for any Zombie deck. The cycling is really good.
Liliana's Reaver is a good midrange card.
Lifebane Zombie is a great sideboard option vs green and white. With all the recursion in your deck, chances are you'll be exile a whole lot of cards.
Undead Warchief is amazing, and only four dollars.
Cemetery Reaper is a zombie lord.
Call to the Grave is great in that it causes all other players to sacrifice a creature on their turns, while leaving you virtually unharmed. The only problem is that your commander will be sacrificed too, but compared to the advantage, I'd say it's worth.

Great mono-black zambies deck! If you wanted to play this in standard, there are a couple cards that are not legal in the format such as Soulless One. It's up to you but if you keep them in the deck you should switch it to "modern" :)

I have to say while I agree with a good number of the cuts suggested above, I do disagree with a lot of what s/he said too, although I would probably make many of the cuts he suggested.
Mazirek is a good card, it can basically trip over a lot of cards to go infinite, but it doesn't just fit into random shells. Counters on tokens is usually a good powerful go-wide strategy.
Thornbite Staff is another infinite combo engine that doesn't seem to fit here. Great on Glissa, the Traitor but pointless in many other builds. Glissa needs to focus on her recursion in this deck and ignore the combo potential, unless that becomes one of your main plans.
Plaguelord is removal on a stick, but better with Grave Pact et al. Repeatable removal is great, and free sac outlets are good.
Essentially in EDH you want cards that either benefit from what your commander wants to do, or can be abused in the environment playing to you commander creates. In here it looks like the desire is to have Meren out and sac the tokens, or Ezuri out and ramp up on experience Counters to make huge dudes, which playing Ezuri next to Sidisi and doing her thing will just make zombies.
Ghoultree makes sense also, but generally your cards are better spent doing things other than turning sideways so I probably wouldn't run it.
Personally, I don't like Bane of Progress. Blowing up your own rocks and enchantments is a feel bad moment. The slots are better used elsewhere.
I do like the Sidisi + experience Counters plan. Ohthenoises has a deck that functions similarly, you should check it out.

I think Ghoulcaller Gisa should probably be here. She isn't a zombie, but she has the Innistrad flavour to go with Mikaeus and giving undying to things like Soulless One and then saccing it to Gisa is always a fun trick. That being said, with Triskelion you could probably just focus on that and not dying to be able to guarantee some wins. It's all about how competitive your group is really.
