The deck looks good but seems somewhat slow. Some suggestions IMO would be:
Out 4 Cryptbreaker for 4 Undead Augur which gives a lot of card advantage with no life loss thanks to Zulaport Cutthroat and Wayward Servant. The problem with Cryptbreaker is that it needs 3 zombies to draw a card. The Augur also pairs great with Village Rites and Bone Shards for more card advantage. If any board wipe happens, you can sacrifice your zombies to Carrion Feeder to trigger the Augur to easily rebuild.
Out 6 Plains for Fetch Lands that can fetch a swamp (Marsh Flats is at it's cheapest)
Out 1 swamp and 2 Castle Locthwain for 3 Geralf's Messenger. With a smaller average CMC, you can cut a few more lands for more creatures. Keeping just 1 Castle is also good enough since Augur in the main deck gives more cards than the Castle's ability.
Unearth over Blasting Station if you already swapped out some land for Geralf's Messenger. These two, at the very least, makes the opponent lose 8 life; more with Cutthroat and Knight on the field. Reanimating other creatures is also another viable strategy to get out of a tight situation.
Ghoulish Procession over Jadar since it's a nonlegendary permanent that can potentially make more zombies to fuel an aristocrats strategy and trigger ETB and death triggers.

- Buy the precon. It already has quite a few things in there.
- What kind of commander do you want to play? Somewhat casual, or is your playgroup okay with infinite combos?
The precon already contains Rooftop Storm for example.. adding something like Acererak the Archlich or Gravecrawler will allow for going infinite. If you don't want to do that, just gravecrawler is sufficient.

I play a commander deck built around The Scarab God, and I have a ton of great recommendations. There's a few really fun directions you can take this, but flooding the board with zombie tokens and making them really beefy is a good bet. Here's some decent budget options, since you say you don't buy many cards:
- Undead Augur is also cheap to cast, and gets you drawing a lot of cards very quickly.
- Zombie Lords like Diregraf Captain, Lord of the Accursed, Death Baron, and many more are staples for zombie decks, though getting more than a few can get expensive.
- Wonder gives you a zombie air force whenever it's in the graveyard.
- Liliana's Mastery gets you two tokens and buffs your zombies.
- Necromancer's Stockpile is a good way to draw cards and get tokens on the board, and if you pitch anything that can recur it's doesn't even have much of a downside.
For some cards that aren't budget, if you want to eventually buy/trade for some really good zombie cards, I've got you covered there too:
- Cryptbreaker is cheap to cast, and is fantastic for getting tokens out and drawing cards. Note that the second ability ignores summoning sickness.
- Diregraf Colossus gets you a token whenever you cast a zombie.
- Army of the Damned creates thirteen zombie tokens if you can get the mana, and then does it again.
- Rooftop Storm makes your zombies free to cast.
- Endless Ranks of the Dead is a diet version of Liliana, the Last Hope's ult.
Best of luck in your future zombie-fueled games!

Hey, well done on a low budget.
Some budget cards to consider adding and then I'll explain why I'm suggesting these:
- Master of Death
- Carrion Feeder
- Tormod, the Desecrator
- Undead Augur
- Midnight Reaper
- Unmarked Grave
- Patriarch's Bidding
Master of Death and Carrion Feeder is a casual budget self-mill engine to get Zombies into your graveyard to embalm them with Scarab. Master of Death surveil 2 each time it ETB which is you look at the top two cards of your library and choose to put them into your graveyard (self-mill) or keep them on top of your library in any order. Carrion Feeder is the one drop Zombie repeatable sac outlet who grows in power with a +1/+1 counter each time it sacs.
Carrion Feeder sacs Master of Death who can at your next upkeep return to your hand for the cost of 1 life. Master of Death returns and you repeat the interaction by casting Master for three mana. Having a Zombie sac outlet is also helpful to sac any Zombie who's going to be exiled by an opponent such as from Swords to Plowshares , one of the most popular instant creature removal spells in Commander. By sacing the Zombie in response to exile it dies and goes to the graveyard instead thus you can embalm it with Scarab.
You can take even more advantage of Master of Death being saced by Carrion Feeder and by Master able to return itself to your hand from your graveyard. Each time you cast Master of Death you create a 2/2 Zombie with Diregraf Colossus making Master a repeatable Zombie source to cast. Each time Master of Death is saced by Feeder it dies which triggers Undead Augur and Midnight Reaper to draw a card for repeatable draw. Each time Master of Death leaves your graveyard to return to your hand or you embalm a Zombie with Scarab it triggers Tormod, the Desecrator to create a 2/2 Zombie.
Self-mill from surveil can also get Wonder into your graveyard which when that happens and you control just one Island then all creatures you control have flying. Wonder gives Scarab and all Zombies flying evasion to make it easier to attack and do combat damage to your opponents. Unmarked Grave can tutor for and put Wonder or any other nonlegendary card into your graveyard which is powerful with Wonder. Self-mill can get many Zombies into your graveyard to then cheat many Zombies onto the battlefield at the same time with mass reanimation from Patriarch's Bidding . Bidding is also excellent quick recovery from an opponent's board wipe.
If interested in any of these suggestions then I offer more advice including cuts to consider, some other budget card upgrades and budget land options. Good luck with your deck.

Chats the only 2 cuts I think you should perhaps reconsider are Discovery / Dispersal (early game this card can dig in your deck a bit to help find land while also supplying your grave with cards for Empty the Pits + Rise from the Tides . In addition the second half is decent late game to bounce peoples higher costed cards) and Forbidden Alchemy (fills up your grave again while also helping you find the card you need, can cast again with flashback instant speed).
