The problem with Sweltering Suns is it is likely going to kill your board and having some 1/1's in exchange is not a great deal as most decks well be able to rebuild pretty quickly and zombies (probably the widest target of suns can recur everything from the grave. You also can't rely on having Nest of Scarabs out every time you suns as it is only a four of this means you have about a 39% chance of seeing it in your opening hand, if you played 2 Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons your chances to have a token generator with the -1/-1 counters goes to 54% so the odds are in your favor.
Finally, three colors doesn't have to be slow, if anything three colours is better because it gives you access to more cards that work better with your strategy. I have never had any problem playing 3 or even 4 colors speed wise. To make three colours work you just need to invest in duals like Blooming Marsh, Aether Hub, and maybe even Attune with Aether, when Ixalan comes around the manabase gets even better with the buddy lands. Basically, sorry for coming on strong but I really feel that -1/-1 counters needs green to be worth it. 1/1 deathtouch snakes are a great payoff, 1/1 insects are nice but not a game ender, and green has all the support for -1/-1 counters (you even get Stinging Shot in the side).

My advice: More lands. Lol. But in all honesty here is my advice
The new Torment of Hailfire would be pretty nice as well.
Also remember Living Death is an incredibly powerful card. Especially in this kind of deck.
If you need anymore advice you know where to find me.

I would suggest less creatures. Creatures are good, but there is a thing as too much. Cards like the new Liliana and old one are good. Anointed Procession, In Oketra's Name, Time to Reflect, Never, Wander in Death, Supernatural Stamina, Stir the Sands, Plague Belcher, Liliana's Mastery, and Gravedigger are all cards from Ahmonkhet that could do nicely in a zombie deck. Innistrad, of course, has a lot of good zombies but those are black and blue. If you want to keep this deck to a minimal price, I would suggest something along the lines of...4xWayward Servant 2xLord of the Accursed 4xFan Bearer 3xBinding Mummy 3xVoracious Null 4xDoomed Dissenter 4xIn Oketra's Name 4xTime to Reflect 4xWander in Death 2xStir the Sands 4xSupernatural Stamina 12xSwamp 10xIsland or something along those lines.This deck using just Ahmonkhet cards. And if I am correct, this (main)deck, minus land, should only be about $12-14 on CardKingdom.

Instead of hijack run Kari Zev's Expertise add Invigorated Rampage and run either Yahenni, Undying Partisan Defiant Salvager Voracious Null or even bontu if you want. I tried this exact deck and it lacks consistency. have a look at my improved mono red version, ive won a fnm with it last week, Amonkhet Paradox Smorc. trust me 20x better and still budget.

have you thought of using Voracious Null sac a creature for 2 1/1 counters, it's an expensive effect but using your opponents creatures to create 2 counters instead of Defiant Salvager or Syndicate Trafficker's add a counter get bigger strategy is what I use for my build of this deck.

Westvale Abbey Flip is really nice with Endrek Sahr, giving you a 9/7 haste, flying, indestructible, and I think trample for 5 Thrulls. Demon of Death's Gate is another nice beater that goes well with tokens. You also can try out Voracious Null, Flesh Carver, Deathgreeter, Gutless Ghoul, and Hecatomb.
Conspiracy allows you to get around Endrek Sahr's second ability, although you can always sac creatures in response to it.

Deck looks great. I'd suggest removing Hanweir Garrison and adding in more Defiant Salvager or Voracious Null. You could even drop a Gonti since he's legendary. You want to be consistent and stay true to the strategy.

First of all, with this high CMC you need 24 lands.
While I understand you are trying to sacrifice your creatures for beneficial effects, the high converted mana cost of your deck makes it kind of hard to work with.
Here are some lower cost creatures that could be good:
Augur of SkullsBasal Sliver (mana accelerator to cast Ruthless Deathfang faster)Bile UrchinBlind ZealotBlood BairnBloodthrone VampireCarrier Thrall (mana accelerator, 2x creature)Corpse HaulerDeath CultistDemonic Taskmaster (need tokens spawn everyturn)Devouring SwarmWestvale Abbey Flip This is a must have.Disciple of Griselbrand Save yourself.Doomed Necromancer Worth it.Eldrazi Skyspawner Mana acceleratorFont of ReturnFume SpitterGnawing ZombieGutless GhoulMerciless ExecutionerMortician Beetle -------> Cause why not.Nezumi Bone-Reader ControlPawn of Ulamog mana acceleratorQarsi SadistQuest for the GravelordThoughtpicker Witch controlThrull Surgeon controlVampiric RitesVoracious Null
