Some of the options I know aren't the most budget friendly but Mesmeric Orb Might be a better way than Traumatize to fill graveyards although with cards like Dralnu, Lich Lord and Call to Mind that's hard to tell. If you do add to the milling abilities, or even if you don't Undead Alchemist does a lot of work towards growing your horde. Geth, Lord of the Vault is also pretty handy at filling
Now this is meta dependent, but how often do you see yourself casting the CMC 6-8spells before the game ends?
You could cut some of the upper end to reinforce the lower with cards like Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat. If you want to stay closer to theme, Vengeful Dead Also causes life loss. The first two would also help mitigate the negative side of Dark Prophecy and reinforce the existing cards like Diregraf Captain and Plague Belcher.

- Thing in the Ice Flip
- Bedlam Reveler
- Aberrant Researcher Flip
- Docent of Perfection Flip
- Delver of Secrets Flip
- Young Pyromancer

- Past in Flames
- Snapcaster Mage (if your budget cap goes up)
- Arjun, the Shifting Flame
- Baral, Chief of Compliance

Atroxreaper, you mentioned Mill as an archetype, but that is a particular deck and win condition not it's own archetype.
For example, you can build Mill in all 3 archetypes.

I have a friend with a pretty similar deck, and based on his deck, you should add in a lot more creatures and self-mill to generate zombies from Sidisi. This friend of mine uses Traumatize to mill half his library, which now would probably get you an average of around 10 zombies from Sidisi. Mirror-Mad Phantasm works similarly. Splinterfright is a great addition as well. Hope this helps!

Hey friend! Love the list and the unique commander.
First, I would indeed double down on the mill -- however, mill in EDH is really too weak to be a viable win condition unless it is your only wincon. (In other words, plan to win through beatdown, which you achieve through mill and Geralf. You might sometimes win through mill, but don't bet everything on it.) I would include more mill to fuel the Stitcher. As is, you've got a ~17% chance to mill a creature, and only 4-5 of them are enormous creatures that you'd want exiled. As a result, you're relying on exiling opponents' libraries, which is always dangerous because they could be packing 17 creatures or even just 1.
Great mill cards are Mirror-Mad Phantasm, Undead Alchemist, Traumatize, Fraying Sanity, Startled Awake Flip, etc, especially if you use them on yourself where applicable! Laboratory Maniac helps mitigate the risk of that strategy.
To make room for the mill, I would cut a lot of your artifacts, in addition to the cards like Mechanized Production that are "cute" combos (ones that don't come together often) or the scrying (which doesn't advance your gameplan of filling your grave and abusing Geralf). Usually, five or six mana rocks and five or fewer utility artifacts are sufficient (depending on meta), so you can use all of those slots for creatures! That will increase the consistency of your deck and hopefully make it more fun for you!
Good luck! Let me know if I can be helpful!
