Good day to you!
I really liked your most recent article, especially since its theme is exactly on what I've brewed a modern deck around. Let me explain:
I'm solely a commander player, but I've always liked the idea of playing a modern deck that punishes the "unfair" decks.
I'm not too familiar with the format, so I was wondering... would you mind taking a look at my deck and offering some feedback? If so, thank you very much!

No problem, my lists are for anyone to view, glad I got you a fancy username.

Thanks I have been wondering how others made their username Fancy. :D I've never played modern or stranded. But I do have some decks on here. :D and thank you so much.

Well I think the first step to building your sideboard is identifying what decks your playgroup has, and then from there we can look at what matchups you need help with. Be sure to link my name like you did last time so I get notified.

I'll have to agree with previous comments that this is just a mono-black devotion deck that you decided to throw some recursive creatures into, along with Lord of the Accursed and called mono-black zombies. This isn't to say the deck is bad, as a Mono-black Midrange player myself I will attest this. But this is far from a Zombie tribal deck as advertised.
If you really wanted to build a Zombie Tribal deck, I'd reccomend a green splash, which would easily be affordable considering the amount of fetches you play, in order to play Collected Company.
Another fatty you should be playing in zombie tribal is Plague Belcher. Since you can easily kill a Gravecrawler or any other recursive creature, it's a 5/4 menance that can easily take over a game (With Menace to boot!)
If you aren't going to take advantage of the Zombie tribe, I'd recommend moving Gifted Aetherborn to the maindeck, and cutting your zombie sub-theme since basically all your creatures turns 1-3 can't really block anything at all.
Also, cards like Lashwrithe can show up because with fatties like Kalitas you can just win games swinging for upwards of 9 power with lifelink a turn. (Also goes really well with Obliterator)
Also, if this deck is meant to be played competitively, run Liliana, the Last Hope, if in the sideboard if not the mainboard. The reason for this is becuase she can hold off small aggressive creatures, as well as fetch your zombies that you are already playing (cards like Gravecrawler and Bloodghast, and the best part, SHE CAN RECUR FULMINATOR MAGES! something this deck needs to do to beat decks like tron.
If you want any further help, feel free to look at my primer for all mono-black needs!

Interesting deck, so +1 from me, here are my suggestions.
Replace Cryptic Serpent, Weaver of Lightning, and Niblis of Frost with Guttersnipe, the amount of synergy this card has with your deck is insane. I'd honestly try to figure out how to put 4 copies of him into the board this would also allow you to play more spells over small wipe cards like Pyroclasm since you can probably burn your opponent out before they become relevant. However, if Pyroclasm is relevant enough in your playgroup that you MUST play it, then I'd recommend it be a sideboard card.
While it doesn't exactly fit your strategy, the card AEtherling is infamous as a control finisher in many decks due to it's exceptional versatility. Although such a card is far better suited for budget UW control.
Is there a real reason to play Counterflux over an additional copy of Dissolve? Because Counterflux is almost always a sideboard card, and is more mana intensive then Dissolve and doesn't even give you a scry bonus.
I know that this card is a little less budget then you'd like it to be but Shivan Reef seems excellent since it sees no play currently.
Those are just my suggestions, if you want any more help or advice let me know!

Interesting deck, so +1 from me, here's my 2 cents.
- There are some cards that are great in Commander that fit your theme! Among these are Whispersilk Cloak, Rogue's Passage, Cloak and Dagger, Swiftfoot Boots, Invisible Stalker, Shadowmage Infiltrator, Thalakos Deceiver, and Quietus Spike.
Coastal Piracy also comes to mind.
The next cards I'm going to suggest aren't exactly on theme, but I think they do enough in your deck that they should be included regardless, as they have such powerful synergy with what you play.
If you want any more suggestions feel free to let me know!

Thanks for the comment!
The reason I personally do not play push in this deck is because I'm usually tapping out to cast my spells and cracking fetches. This usually means that push doesn't hit everything I need it to. This conclusion was reached through playing in my list.
Since I have a more aggressive meta, I do not play Geralf's Messenger since 3 cmc puts it at odds with the other 3 drops I play. I am considering adding Liliana, the Last Hope, as it would help me in that.

It's due to an admin claiming that a deck has been convicted of voter fraud.

At this point, I'd just playtest, and see how it fares, from there you can decide what is helpful and what's not. You have pretty much all I can think of for a deck like this, so now it's more how much of each thing do you want.

After some extensive testing I think Lingering Souls needs to be kept in the sideboard, as in the mirror matchup, souls, Ranger, and Push come in over the peacekeepers, since it's one of the few matchups where it is ineffective.
Also, due to the fact that some people do try to steal peacekeeper, removal is there just in case we need to get rid of it should it change sides.
