I love nekusar and everything about him, I started building him as soon as he was spoiled, and now have an insanely tuned and budgetless competitive multiplayer edh deck
Anyways, what would I recommend for budget casual constructed?
As you can see by my deck, i learned that nekusar loves Wheel of Fortune and is more of a spellslinger draw theme than zombie tribal.
That being said, if you want to build around the lich king, creatures should be your last priority,
In a 20 life format, nekusar only needs 3 "draw 7" or mass loot spells to kill an opponent, and thankfully a majority of these are cheap.
Second to wheels and forced draw, nekusar is kind of high cmc for a creature, so things like Nightscape Familiar can help you cast more spells faster, speaking of more spells, grixis has access to a beautiful array of rituals that you can chain into nekusar much earlier than turn 5 and also allow you to cast more wheels after refreshing your hand
The budget rituals include
Cards like Geth's Grimoire and Jace's Archivist can easily win you the game if left unchecked, and there are other forms of draw damage in Phyrexian Tyranny Fevered Visions Underworld Dreams Spiteful Visions
As far as cheap counterspells, Arcane Denial is BONKERS cuz it can deal draw damage with its draw, Sign in Blood is a cheap card draw that you can use to draw OR kill opponents by stacking it with nekusar.
Cards that save you from wheels decking you out
Other than "wheel" and countermagic, you can also mill opponents with Mindcrank or Sphinx's Tutelage, reanimate wheeled creatures with stuff like Stitch Together, or run discard like Despise or Duress, and Cephalid Coliseum is INSANE as a cheap 1-of in edh, id be scared to see what 3 or 4 could do.
Lastly, a spell decks worst weakmess is CREATURES
now im going to assume you're not going to be slinging Damnation around, but theres tons of budget alternatives in the likely case that opponents will have more creatures than you
And if you're still itching to run creatures even though i would not advise many, here are a few options thar nekusar has liked in the past
Hope this helps

Oooooh boy. I have been DYING to see a nice Scavenge deck with Varolz! I will have to use this as reference! Some suggestions that I have as far as scavenge creatures are Lord of Extinction and Skullbriar, the Walking Grave. Both of them will continuously get larger and larger as you play and Skullbriar can even be a possible win con for you, especially if you through in Stitch Together.

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.

Just FYI, there are various Formats in MTG you can play. Standard, Modern, Legacy, Vintage, Casual, etc.
Standard is limited to only newer cards, Modern allows cards going all the way back to 8th Edition (July 28, 2003), and most other formats allow cards from any printing, barring banned ones.
Presumably you're playing casually (correct me if I'm wrong), and you have your deck flagged as Standard at the moment, and it contains a couple of cards that are not legal in Standard (because they're too old).
If you are playing casually, there's loads of good cheap cards you can get your hands on. Hymn to Tourach can be found in the $0.60 range and it's incredibly powerful in casual play.
Also a real quick rules note:
If she uses Act of Treason on your Nightmare, while it is under her control it will have power and toughness based on the number of Swamps she controls, not the number you do. So unless she's also running Swamps, that shouldn't be an issue at all.
she takes my cards and turns them against me using act of treason....i had my nightmare at 7/7 And she beat me to death with it
None of these are "must have" cards, but they're all inexpensive (<$2 each), and can be incredible in the right deck in casual play.

So you have 8 big reanimation targets in Sepulchral Primordial and Diluvian Primordial which is a good number for optimized lists. As far as upgrades for your bombs go Inkwell Leviathan is a solid threat and Kederekt Leviathan helps reset the board after you bring it back.

Cycling Gempalm Polluter is always fun in tribal zombies.
Since you're running Buried Alive, maybe it would be worth your while to try hard reanimates like Animate Dead, Necromancy, Stitch Together and Reanimate along with big threats like Sheoldred, Whispering One to control your opponent's board, but also reanimate yours with ease?
Imagine a T1 Swamp, Mox Diamond, Mana Crypt, buried alive, second main - Reanimate Sheoldred. Chances are they won't have an immediate answer, and you get to reanimate whatever creature you decided to pitch.

And since Oloro is your new general I think Aetherflux Reservoir Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond would fit nicely! You should consider restructuring your creature base to fit a life gain and drain theme! Those two enchantments provide an infinite loop.
