Creature — Skeleton Warrior
When Tenacious Dead dies, you may pay . If you do, return it to the battlefield tapped under its owner's control.
Tenacious Dead Discussion

If you're looking for more recursion of creatures I would suggest Bloodsoaked Champion and Palace Siege . They're both easily repeatable. Tenacious Dead is okay but the drawback is you have to make sure you have mana to bring it back.

Pretty similar to a deck I just recently brewed and put together for pods this weekend The Aristocrats Featuring Teysa Karlov. As pointed out Nether Traitor is really easy to go infinite with having any type of creature generator out. I've also been thinking about putting in Tenacious Dead which has a similar effect for a little more mana. I guess it all depends on how you actually want to go about building the deck though.

I'd look at doubling down on the board wipes, especially if you can delay them, and looking more to artifacts like Lashwrithe . Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my list of all the stuff I've made work in mono-black in modern.

Blightsteel Colossus - Curve reasons
Graveblade Marauder - Cute but effect probably isn't good enough
Hamletback Goliath - Curve reasons
Khenra Eternal - Bad card basically. Though we want this slot to be at that mana cost
Khenra Scrapper - Again. We want aggressive cards like this but we can do better
Saskia the Unyielding - Big target on your head. Colour intensive. Not a warrior
Savage Knuckleblade - Colour intensive
Taurean Mauler - Doesn't work towards our game plan. Doesn't trigger off combat damage doesn't buff others.
Tenacious Dead - Just bad
Tolsimir Wolfblood - Buff isn't universal and its expensive
Zhur-Taa Druid - We want mana dorks. But only taps for green and its colour intensive to cast.
Maybe Cuts Or Later Cuts
Thunderfoot Baloth - Expensive but ok effect.
Hellkite Charger - Maybe cut. We already have access to this effect at cheaper cost
Zurgo Helmsmasher - He's good. But doesn't help the rest of the game plan
Clan Defiance - Doesn't impact the board enough to make us win the game.
Lavalanche - Effect we want but possible to find cheaper?
Crackling Doom - Doesn't do enough
Oketra's Monument - Doesn't trigger enough and the mana reduction isn't relevant enough
Attacking / Combat Matter Cards
Blood-Chin Rager - Warriors have Menace
Herald of Dromoka - Warriors have Vigilance
Chief of the Edge - Warriors get +1/+0
Raiders' Spoils - Very good card draw
Lovisa Coldeyes - Warriors +2/+2 Haste
Mindblade Render - MOAR card draw
Ogre Battledriver - Your warriors that enter will be 3/1s when attacking
Jazal Goldmane - Massive Buffs
Mardu Woe-Reaper - Graveyard Interaction
Thrasher Brute - Drains an opponent with warrior etb triggers
Edric, Spymaster of Trest - MOAR CARD DRAW
Cryptolith Rite - Lots of mana, infinite combats
Phyrexian Altar - Sac some of the tokens to activate Najeela
Derevi, Empyrial Tactician - Win the game
Sword of Feast and Famine - Win the game if you have the lands
Nature's Will - Win the game if you have the lands
Bear Umbra - Win the game if you have the lands
Archetype of Aggression - Trample
Purphoros, God of the Forge - This guy doesn't need explanation
Cyclonic Rift - ....yeh
Divine Visitation - BECAUSE ANGELS
Harvest Season - we make a lot of tapped and attacking creatures. We want mana
Throne of the God-Pharaoh - Alternate win cons
Shared Animosity - Massive Buffs
Aggravated Assault - Easier Najeela trigger without keywords
Aven Wind Guide - Gives our tokens flying and vigilance

Rather than Stitcher's Supplier and a whole bunch of Rally the Ancestors why not play Perilous Myr, Deathgreeter, Festering Mummy, Tenacious Dead, Doomed Dissenter, Relentless Dead, Gravecrawler, Bloodghast, or Dread Wanderer. These all allow for more of an "aristocrats strategy" rather than a reanimator-esque strategy. Repeatable affects or payoffs for sacrificing creatures is what you want in aristocrats. Stitcher's Supplier is better in decks like bridgevine or Dredge

I definitely cut:
Tenacious Dead (unless there's a combo I'm missing) Diregraf Colossus (I don't think there are enough zombies here) Captivating Crew (I tried this in a couple sac decks, but the 4 was just way too much.) Desecrated Tomb (bats seem low impact) Bone Splinters Murder Rend Flesh (You have a lot more single target removal spells than I generally like to run, though that's partially personal preference) Warstorm Surge/Impact Tremors (I might be missing a combo with these, though)
I'd probably cut:
