Black also has a lot of disease/plague effects, so along with Zombies you're solid.
Blue/Black gives you a few good commander options too, the best to my mind being Gisa and Geralf -- You can cast a zombie from the grave each of your turns and you could say they're like The Ashford Twins (minus the weirdness and plus the good-natured antagonism). Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is also a good card just in the deck, a big Tyrant style zombie albeit with a setback.
But, for some real fun, look to equipment with Living Weapon like Batterskull, Lashwrithe, Scytheclaw and Skinwing -- Equipments that have that bioweapon vibe on top of creating germ tokens to act as your T/G Virus!
Hope this gives you some ideas!

I hear you but to define it as a Tutor and not recursion is like saying Gisa and Geralf cant be your zombie tribal cmdr because they are not zombies
Its clearly both recursion and tutor, but mostly a tutor. I get it, it's not that good classified as recursion but the added tutor does make it a good card
Let's not forget that if X is 10 or more it can become a win con

Sweet Deck! If you're trying to make the deck more competitive, I would suggest cutting Gisa and Geralf, Rescue from the Underworld, Sultai Soothsayer, and most of the artifact ramp for cheaper ramp that doubles as creatures for Sidisi hits, like Deathrite Shaman, Elves of Deep Shadow, and the like.

Thank you for your suggestions NV_1980! I really dig your deck, especially since this deck started out as a Gisa and Geralf deck too and came a long way from there by using The Scarab God for quite a while and now making a jump into the Grixis pool. I used to run the altars but I found out early, I don't want to run most of the infinite combos because I neither have efficient outlets for infinite mana nor did I want to win with infinite tokens since they just get wiped during the next turns before I am able to swing with them.
I could still go for infinite drain with Rooftop Storm Gravecrawler Carrion Feeder and Diregraf Captain, but my main gameplan was always to swing with my army (since I already got plenty of combostuff in my other decks) and Marchesa, the Black Rose provides haste and inbuilt recursion and thus seemed fitting and worth a try to me :)

I like the idea of having the plan B of milling your opponents. This way your commander has more targets and Rise of the Dark Realms becomes so much spicier.
For this I’d suggest running cards that fill your opponent’s hands and graves using cards like Font of Mythos/Howling Mine, Fascination, and Anvil of Bogardan. This sets up explosive combos with cards like: Psychic Corrosion, Dreamborn Muse, and Windfall/Jace's Archivist.
Another suggestion I have is to run Phyrexian Altar. It’s 1. a sac outlet 2. Ramp 3. a whole lot of fun with Gravecrawler. He combos with the altar giving you infinite 2/2s with Diregraf Colossus and infinite Altar of the Brood triggers.
Things I’d cut for the 9 cards I mentioned would be: Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (see above), Liliana's Mastery (too much for too little)), Dark Salvation (same reason), Sinister Sabotage (same reason), Expropriate (cut for something that synergies with your general. Take a cooler Rise over some stolen permanents), Ancient Excavation (Dreamborn Muse tho), Liliana, Untouched By Death (the best part about her Gisa and Geralf do already), Entomb (not sure about this one actually), and a land.
Thank you for coming to my ted talk.
