Door of Destinies, Mesmeric Orb really good for self mill to feed you graveyard and really piss off your opponents. Pox, Small Pox, Syphon Flesh, Vengeful Pharaoh, Undead Gladiator, Raving Dead, Helldozer, Liliana's Reaver, Gravespawn Sovereign, Geth, Lord of the Vault there are lots of good zombies here are some and if you like check out my mono black for a few other zombies and such for poss. ideas. like the deck plus one mine if you don't mind.THE DAMNED INFECTED (ZOMBIE TRIBAL)

Actually really like the idea of Syphon Flesh, if i'm going to sacrifice any of my own creatures I'd rather tokens. But It'll probably be a sideboard card for when I play larger multiplayer games.

Here are some suggestions as to what to cut:
Tainted AEther is just a personal preference, you don't get any immediate profit off of it imo
I personally don't care too much for Meren of Clan Nel Toth, but if she works for you, go for it :)
Champion of Stray Souls seems pretty nifty, but I think he's rather mana-intensive
Wake the Dead is pretty good, but are there enough EtB effects to use it to its fullest potential?
From personal experience, this deck is rather weak to board wipes, so I think Damnation could be cut (very good card though)
It That Betrays is rather expensive mana-wise
Rise of the Dark Realms is fun and all, but idk if it's too good in this deck
Spawning Pit is okay, so it's a maybe
Those are all the suggestions I have right now, I'll add a link to my take on Mazirek if you are interested in any ideas, hope this helps!

I already built a Saskia the Unyielding deck going tall but now I want to experiment with going wide. However, the problem is that is not the best contributor to tokens. What could I do to give black some more representation?
I have the following right now:
Army of the Damned (I had this already but the Triple- is offputting)

-Elvish Mystic --> Land-Gatecreeper Vine --> Land
-Ohran Viper --> Land
-Syphon Flesh --> Land
-Grave Strength --> Land
-Stab Wound --> Burgeoning
-AEther Web --> Mana Accelerant (Commander's Sphere/Golgari Signet?)
And I would consider switching out the creatures whose effects revolve around combat in favor of cards which help you control your opponents or better help you reanimate creatures.

Well, I think running the Orzhov Signet instead of the Orzhov Keyrune might help. Dimir might actually be a bit better or even Grixis as it gives you Thraximundar and everything red has to offer (hasty zombies!). Zombie wise, Death Baron, Syphon Flesh, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Vengeful Pharaoh, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Undead Warchief, Lord of the Undead, Corpse Harvester which seems really nice with your commander, Grimoire of the Dead, and Helldozer. Land wise, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, and Unholy Grotto seem nice. By the way, you have two Ghoulcaller's Chants.

I think Blood Mist could be a fun and flavorful card for your hellbent vampires! I see you recently removed Anowon, the Ruin Sage and added Sheoldred, Whispering One but I ask: why not both? Use abusive forced sacrifice effects to keep your opponents weak so you can build up to the position where you can steal their creatures. Cards like Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are especially helpful. Barter in Blood and Syphon Flesh can stack with Sheoldred and Anowon to really put the screw to your opponent. Anyways I really like your deck, and I appreciate the difficulty of your endeavor: playing a control oriented commander in
+1 from me!
