Creature — Zombie
If a Zombie you control would deal combat damage to a player, instead that player puts that many cards from the top of his or her library into his or her graveyard.
Whenever a creature card is put into an opponent's graveyard from his or her library, exile that card and put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield.

Undead Alchemist Discussion
4 days ago
Ok, are you playing in MTGO or paper? Either way, here are the cards I might take out, either because they are too slow, or they are better in multiplayer (or they are just bad). Dark Salvation, Prized Amalgam, Noxious Ghoul, Liliana's Reaver, Army of the Damned, Crux of Fate, Vanquisher's Banner, Noosegraf Mob, Vindictive Lich, Dread Summons, Endless Ranks of Dead, Altar of Dementia, Sol Ring, Undead Alchemist, Kindred Dominance, Geralf's Messenger, Never / Return, Call to the Grave Grimgrin, Corpse-Born. You could definitely take out others as you play the deck.
Here are some good cards that would be good to have, but not all will make the cut. Rings of Brighthearth, Basalt Monolith, Talisman of Dominance, Arcane Denial, Counterspell, Lim-Dul's Vault, Swan Song, Pact of Negation, Snapcaster Mage, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip, Toxic Deluge, Damnation, Leyline of Anticipation, Vedalken Orrery, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Thought Vessel, Glen Elendra Archmage, Commander's Sphere, Solemn Simulacrum, Gilded Lotus, Cyclonic Rift, Overwhelming Denial, Search for Azcanta Flip, Forbid, Bloodchief Ascension, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Underground Sea, Sunken Ruins, Cavern of Souls, Ancient Tomb.
I'm sure there are many other cards that would be great in the optimized version of this deck, but these are the ones I can think of right now. Also, I am not extremely familiar with the current meta of MTGO(?) 1v1 commander, so there may be cards that are good because of the meta. You will want to do some research and you will definitely make changes as you play. Have Fun!

Increasing Confusion can be a nice choice sometimes with the flashback
You could also try putting in a reanimator package and have some nice targets to access if you mill yourself.

Undead Alchemist is also a bit of a non-bo with your commander, which may be a consideration...

A good question - there's a couple of the creatures I'd try swapping out first. I think I'd lean towards swapping out Undead Alchemist. While it's on theme and can generate tokens, it also effectively resets the opponents' life totals while it is out. Alternatively, I'd look at Void Winnower, which is a cool card but quite off theme, and so won't work with all the things that work with Zombies. But it'd probably need a bit of testing and maybe depend on what your opponents are playing. I definitely think having one sac outlet adds a lot though (and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is great fun!)

Perhaps make room for more creatures, including Undead Alchemist, something like Vampiric Rites for card draw off of tokens, and, say, 4 or 5 fewer Island swapped out for 4 or 5 more Swamp or UB lands.
Also, if you can include a few more sac outlets like Nantuko Husk (maybe with a Rogue's Passage + Tainted Strike), Carrion Feeder, Corpse Blockade, or Phyrexian Ghoul, then Living Death or Living End become possibilities.
