Holy shit that maybeboard! :D

Some thoughts:

Immediate +1 for Elspeth ;)

I'm glad you already know about Hatred. That would have been my first suggestion.

Cathars' Crusade will useful. Make 10 tokens from Elenda and they all get 10 +1/+1 counters. Just pure value.

Well of Lost Dreams. Lifegain seems to be a secondary theme here, but having this around to draw some extra cards will always be good.

Eldrazi Monument. Just a nice way to buff all your tokens.

Edict effects go hand in hand with sac outlet decks. Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact.

Mentor of the Meek. Again, more card draw.

Sigil of the New Dawn. Return Elenda to your hand immediately.

I'm considering making an Elenda build. One avenue I was thinking was graveyard hate. Really unconventionl strategy here but maybe it'll work. Planar Void, Purgatory(could choose the 2 life over 2 mana. Good deal), Mortuary, Cremate(also draws you a card), Withered Wretch, Thraben Heretic could all be useful. Just some thoughts.

Hope some of this helps! I'll keep following this with interest.

I do like the suggestion of Exquisite Blood. Since I play paper I will have to wait to add the actual card to the deck until I can afford it. I know that Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat would combo off nicely with a number of things in the deck, but I am trying to keep this zombie/necromancy themed and that flavor means a lot to me. I will have to think for a while on Withered Wretch as it is both clutch in certain situations, but also very niche.

Would cut Withered Wretch because it seems like a bad graveyard hate card and that it doesn't do anything in the way of zombie tribal

Or better yet, cut them both and run Withered Wretch instead. I understand that Life-Gain is important... but how important...?

Ghoulcaller's Chant vs. Disentomb to pull 2 instead of 1.

Screeching Skaab vs. Withered Wretch. Wretch is the only creature in here focused on exiling from the grave, which is good if an opponent is running reanimate but as the only card in here that does that, I'd just ditch it and go with the self mill idea. Maybe think about finding a couple cards with flashback that help retrieve an instant/sorcery from the grave in case you throw out Zombie Apocalypse or Living Death. I'd suggest getting rid of the counterspells but that's just me.

Nightcreep is a cool card but seems pointless in here. You don't have any swampwalk, and it'd help your opponents out if you have Bad Moon out. I could see maybe some kind of combo with Bubbling Muck but trying to play one card off another card that you may or may not have is risky.

From the maybeboard, I wouldn't bother with Forgotten Creation, Graf Harvest, Liliana's Elite or Servant of Tymaret. The crow is perfect for the mill theme. I'd argue that Door of Destinies could be better than Coat of Arms, but ideally switch out Jinxed Idol for it. The other cards are just really good.
