Just a few old zombie tribal suggestions: Vengeful Dead, Gempalm Polluter and Unholy Grotto.

Tombstone Stairwell with Eldrazi Monument. I run this combo in my mono black zombie tribal deck and it gets out of hand real quick.

Dump as much zombies in your graveyard as you can then cast mass recurring spells such as Living Death, Patriarch's Bidding or Zombie Apocalypse, trigger "Gary" (Gray Merchant of Asphodel) then sac everything to your sac outlets (Carrion Feeder, Phyrexian Ghoul or Grimgrin, Corpse-Born) to trigger your "Zombie Aristocrats" (Vengeful Dead or Diregraf Captain). Rinse and repeat.

I think you've recognized the dilution of the deck as for what to do with it is up to you. There are some interesting synergies in it already but my favorite is the dynamic between; Vengeful Dead, Carrion Feeder and Soulless One. Noxious Ghoul looks interesting to go in your sideboard but is too late game to be in the main deck. as for thematic and functional sorceries I'd say keep Unearth, Stir the Grave (for returning Zombies) and Skulltap. Ghoul's Feast looks like it'll be great for a cheeky fatal swing too. If you focus on a playset of each of the above you've got an interesting mechanic that would be great fun to play and even lose against.

further recommendations would be; Butcher Ghoul, Dregscape Zombie, Geralf's Messenger, Relentless Dead, Cryptbreaker and of course Diregraf Colossus

word to the wise though; don't just go for the money cards

This looks like a ton of fun! I love zombies!!!

Noxious Ghoul gives all non-zombies -1/-1 when a zombie enters the battlefield. So you can clear the board pretty easily.

Vengeful Dead deals 1 damage to each opponent when a zombie leaves play which makes people think twice about board wipes.

Unholy Grotto is a must have land with zombies!

+1 good job!

I build this deck just to play with some friends with a limit of price that we set in the beginning.This deck is for hold down and drain life as you said, but you can do some damage too using Vengeful Dead and Nausea. (The point that I'm trying to do is to damage all players in a row).

Expedition Map is the best land tutor available to you. Scourge of Nel Toth is a great flying zombie, and he seems great to recur for cheap and sac to gisa every turn too. I like Curse of Shallow Graves and Ascendant Evincar a lot in my zombie deck. Just making sure you noticed the infinite combo you run too, Phyrexian Altar, Gravecrawler, & Vengeful Dead. I've seen some zombie lists more focused on achieving that combo. I don't have an altar or i would run it. Heres a link to mine check it out..

Vengeful Dead is another combo piece in rooftop storm in case your Captain goes.

Thanks KroggandMohawk for checking it out and for the upvote!

Goblins-turned-zombies, well, I am still working out the optimal uses for their dual citizenship, but cards like Vengeful Dead could really come in big, especially if the goblin swarm finds one of its sac outlets like Skirk Prospector. Also, Zombies in general are harder to keep down, so I may try to add more recursion/attrition type mechanics. I will likely be tweaking this deck here and there as I figure out what works best, and I am glad you like the concept!
