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.

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.

Mind's Eye. A poor man's rhystic study.
Vengeful Pharaoh is also fun.
Gravespawn Sovereign for repeatable conversion.
Soulless One, just because

Whoah first time anyones made suggestions on any of my decks,so i'll do my best to go over why i've made many of the decisions I've made.
First off my plan is a mix of damage and mill using mill in order to steal from an opponents graveyard with the cards Geth, Lord of the Vault ,Bone Dancer,and the big one Hedonist's Trove, plus wanting my opponents to have a large graveyard to make Consuming Aberration big makes my amount of graveyard hate somewhat small with only Bojuka Bogas a full grave exile and Crypt Incursion getting rid of all creatures and serve as my only real source of life gain.
I may look for a place for Forgotten Creation as my card draw isn't perfect.
As for reanimation i have several reusable reanimation sources and a creature that can be recurred at any time namely Gravecrawler.
I have considered Soulless One but i feel i don't need both it and Consuming Aberration and i simply think the aberration is better(although i may look for a place for it,it is in my maybe board for a reason).
Thanks for your suggestions I really,genuinely appreciate them but i won't be able to use most of them for some of the reasons above. I'll make a more elaborate description explaining my deck and it's stratagems in the future.
But for now thanks for the feedback and have a fantastic day.

If mill s your target Phenax, God of Deception might be a better general. here are some cards that aren't in your maybe list that might help with milling and keep the zombie theme.
Agent of Erebos - graveyard hate
Corpse Harvester - tutor for Undead Alchemist, best mill card in the deck
Forgotten Creation - card draw (my deck has a heavy reanimation theme, might not work for your deck
Relentless Dead - reanimation
Soulless One - ultimate zombie horde
Dread Summons - Mill + zombie tokens
Crypt Ghast - not a zombie but doubling up black mana doesnt hurt.

With only 7 zombies in the deck and very few ways to make them, I would remove Undead Warchief, Soulless One, Lord of the Accursed, Gravecrawler only 7 zombies hard to bring back, Oath of Liliana,Relentless Dead (maby)
Or you can just add more zombies. to make the cards worth it.

FYI Necromancer's Covenant technically came out before Karador. It's from Alara Reborn.
Either way, one way I've seen people spew out masses of zombie tokens is by using Ghoulcaller Gisa and cards like Soulless One/Lord of Extinction which works awesome with Karador since you can just recur the sacrificed creature over and over. Also, Vampire Aristocrat et al let you sac the tokens and then sac the aristocrat to Gisa for twice the number of tokens. Something to think about. White would end up mostly being for support/removal etc.
