Neat deck!

I would recommend Eternal Skylord and God-Eternal Bontu and Vizier of the Scorpion as good support creatures.

You might also make good use of Unburial Rites .

Additionally, Crypt Ghast and Cabal Stronghold or Cabal Coffers all pair well with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

Vizier of the Scorpion could make your tokens a bigger threat and force the game into a stalemate and let you build your token up

Heyo! I've been out of standard for a while (aside from MTGA), so take my suggestions with a grain of salt, but I think you've got a pretty good base going, especially since you say you're new to magic. Bear with me here, since I don't know what you count as "budget", so I'm going to assume anything below $5. So lets get to the changes:

Fireblade Artist - pretty easy cut here, it's not a zombie so it isn't on theme, and it doesn't really do anything special to include despite not being a zombie.

Open the Graves - This one is a little less easy, I haven't playtested the deck so I don't know the mileage you get from it, but here are my issues - First, it's 5 mana. It's the only card at this cost and it tops off your list. Second, it doesn't do anything when it comes down to help you win. Third, it relies on you have a board that is dying, so you can get value off of it.

Blood Divination - There are cheaper alternatives you could go for here.

Recover - This card basically does nothing. It costs 3 mana and doesn't really bring you closer to winning. The card draw is nice, but I'm sure tehre are better options.

Vraska, Swarm's Eminence - Her passive only works while you have Death Baron on the field, so you can't really count on that.

Midnight Reaper - A zombie based card draw option that triggers off of itself - $3

Graveyard Marshal - Eats your bodies to make more zombies allowing you to go wide - $.50

Vizier of the Scorpion - Creates a zombie and provides your tokens with deathtouch if you decide to keep Vraska - $.10

Josu Vess, Lich Knight - now I'll admit this one is a bit out there, but it is a zombie, it has menace, it has a decent body for the cost and assuming you make it to the late late late game, it's a great finisher. This is my lowest recommendation though.

Costly Plunder - Draws 2 instead of 3, but is an instant so you can respond to creature removal by casting it. It's also half the cost. - $.10

Lastly, you may want to consider adding more Cast Down s, drop the land count by one (if you're dropping the 5 mana slot), and lastly Dragonskull Summit for mana fixing (these are about $5 each). Thaaaaat's everything, I think.

What's your thoughts on Death Baron vs Vizier of the Scorpion ?

Why not use Vizier of the Scorpion ? I know you have Death Baron but would the redundancy hurt?

Here are some interesting Amass cards. Gleaming Overseer , Vizier of the Scorpion , Dreadhorde Invasion , Bleeding Edge , Lazotep Plating , Herald of the Dreadhorde , Grim Initiate , Enter the God-Eternals , and Invade the City . Don't forget that cards that say proliferate could boost the counters on your army and Planeswalkers so they may be fine to throw in too. The one coming to my mind is Flux Channeler .
