I feel like too many white zombie lists keep overlooking Binding Mummy, the card is fantastic for getting through tough blockers or setting up favorable trades for your zombies with menace. Functions quite well with Diregraf Colossus and/or token producing spells as well.
Not playing liliana, death's majesty is just painful though.

Avakosh, I do agree that Binding Mummy is great alongside Menace. Say they have 5 creatures. You cast or have one enter. Tapping a single capable blocker leaving them with just 4 now those 4 need to team up to block just 2 of your Zombies and this can open up holes for others to get through. Thing is though dedicated removal does the same thing for Menace. It thins out their forces or takes one away that could've been used to block 2 for 1 but it's permanent tapping so to speak. They lose their target forever not just one turn while it's tapped. Dark Salvation and Time to Reflect to me do this better. Pairing with Menacing creatures.
Also Binding Mummy's effect is only on ETB. So what if you've already cast all your creatures in hand and don't have any continual effect that puts Zombies into play? Your suggestions of Liliana and Diregraf Colossus are great continuous effects but otherwise if you run out of creatures or spells that put Zombies into play then the Binding Mummy is just another pointless 2/2 Zombie and a waste of a drawn card slot. Would much rather draw a target removal spell than this creature if I'm top decking. It's good early on when your still playing creatures or casting spells that put Zombies into play but it's really bad otherwise when your not.
liliana, death's majesty is great (and to be honest I didn't actually see it until you shared it). I don't know how I missed it. It can be costly at 5 mana but I like how it comes in with 5/7 already towards the Ultimate. That's to say it's only two turns of creating a 2/2 Zombie away from board wiping the enemy and opening a free path for all your creatures to attack in with. Running more Lili's might give reason to run the Oath of Liliana spell too.
I think I would fool around with a different Zombie build, running creatures that ARE NOT Zombies already though. Something like Combat Celebrant would be awesome to hit with put the top two cards of your library into your graveyard or by discarding it to Cryptbreaker or some other discard outlet. Then you can just -3 Liliana and return it from the grave to the play straight onto the battlefield. That creature is then a black Zombie in addition to its other colors and types. Exert it now and attack in with all Zombies twice in the same turn (maybe running Always Watching as well?)

Honestly i'd say Diregraf Colossus is better suited than Stir the Sands he's more than likely to come in as a 3/3 + and keeps giving you ZAMBIES also with 22 lands you are highly unlikely to reach 6 mana before the game ends. Especially with all the 1 and 2 cmc ZAMBIES you have. Though admittedly he's the main reason I'm thinking of sideboarding Supernatural Stamina in mine. In playtests him and Binding Mummy can create some crazy turn fours. Tis why i minimized the amount of removal in mine so i could have enough ZAMBIES to cast for Diregraf Colossus to be worth it. He's defo worth it as at least a 1x in your deck though. Tattered Mummy and Festering Mummy were the others i was looking at for mine how are those working out for you? Lastly you need Fatal Push as at least a 3x maybe 4x in your sideboard. Nice deck i like were you are going more token based than mine its nice to see where other people are going with this.

I like your build! I'm really excited about BW zombies in Standard, so if you get to play this at FNM please let us know how you do. Here's the build I went with if you wanna check it>Necropowered Army. Good luck!

This looks good, real good. 1. If I had any suggestions however, they would be to take out one or two of Liliana's Mastery and maybe replace the Graf Harvest with a Lord of the Accursed. That, or add at least one more Graf Harvest. The menace and a lot of tokens combined can be a real pain to block, hehe. 2. As well as that, one or two more Diregraf Colossus's would be nice, as they can be great for tokens when playing zombies, or for late game big creature when you have plenty dead in your grave. 3. And finnaly, maybe add a small bit more cards that just make tokens. Great deck all around mate, looks fun!

If you play this in Standard let us know how you do! I built my own BW zombies that I think are going to kick ass at FNM seen here> Necropowered Army. Good luck!
