Zombie Master is not modern legal
Zombie Master too high mana cost, and more importantly not a zombie... so rip

I've played a more creature-based version of this commander, so while my suggestions may be skewed towards creatures, I hope they'll be helpful at the very least.
- Prized Amalgam
- Necromancer's Stockpile
- Vengeful Pharaoh
- Noosegraf Mob
- Dark Salvation

You've already got Tomb of Yawgmoth so Zombie Master can be a little unfair at times. Even if the swampwalk doesn't come in handy, the regenerate is nice to have available. Granted, he helps opponents' zombies too. But unless you're going against another zombie tribal, it should help you far more than your opponents.

Helldozer is slow, but if he comes online he seems legit. you'll probably need to test him out in your meta.
Scourge of Nel Toth is just too expensive for my taste, but hey he is a flyin' Zombie..I could see it getting cut in favor of a more efficient card.
Diabolic Tutormy least favorite tutor, should be replaced by a more efficient one, like Vampiric TutorDemonic TutorBeseech the QueenRune-Scarred Demonor any other one. There are probably 8 more I can't think of right now. BtQ being one of the budget option.
that should give you some options to trade for. I would also check out the other Gisa lists on EDHREC for ideas, she is a very popular commander. Have Fun :)

Also Bile Blight is too good not to include on a black build.

Undead Alchemist can be so much fun to mill with. There's a ton of cards to build a zombie army with him but my favorite is Zombie Master. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth makes it even more effective. You've got green so why not Parallel Lives to get math on your side? I use to run this combo when I had a Sidisi, Brood Tyrant deck and it was lots of fun.
You mention you like milling artifacts, so if you're bored, check out my mill deck centered on artifacts:

First things first, I would lower your land count to 35. You shouldn't need much more than that due to being Mono, and Black gets a lot of good ramp cards. Barren Moor and Myriad Landscape should be removed for sure. I would say Crypt of Agadeem needs testing. Personally I find it to be too slow.
Under your Artifacts, I would personally cut Charcoal Diamond due to it being a fairly weak mana rock. My suggestion would be Mana Crypt but you don't have to replace it. Coat of Arms is great but I have never found a need for it. It is something I cut. It is great when I have a lot, but if I have a lot, I should already be winning. This is what we call "Win More" but it could also hurt you. Consulate Dreadnought is an easy cut. You would usually rather attack with the Zombies. Door of Destinies is another card I would cut. It's only getting counters when you cast spells, while Gisa is usually swarming with tokens. Door of Destinies is a personal choice, and the best card I just suggested to be cut.
As you want more mana ramp, especially due to my cut of Charcoal Diamond, get a Black Market.
I'll get to the Sorceries and Creatures later. Those two with Instants are all personal choices.
I'm not sure how much I've helped with cuts so far as I've made a few suggestions. We will figure this out.
