Mimic Vat has interesting synergy with Konrad. Upon a creature dying, you can put the creature into the vat and pop the previously-imprinted one out, getting you 3 Konrad triggers per death instead of just one.

Perhaps Corpse Connoisseur and Gravebreaker Lamia? These could be neat too: Hell's Caretaker, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Cauldron of Souls, Requiem Angel, Nim Devourer, Black Market, Mimic Vat (this one is neat with Tormod. the vat takes the creature from grave to exile, triggering Tormod. so you could imprint every creature of yours that dies to make that many zombies)

You are going to need more than 12 lands. Whenever I build a deck, I always start with 40 lands and then for every 3 pieces of ramp, which for a mono black deck would be a mana rock or swamp doubler or ritual spell like Dark Ritual, I remove a land.
Please retune the deck with 12 non-land mana sources and 36 swamps for starters and you can think of non-swamp lands you want to include later.
My suggestions for those sources are any 12 of the following, depending on your budget:
Songs of the Damned
Cabal Coffers <- could replace a swamp
Pristine Talisman <- defiantly want that
After that you've got the commander, which takes up 1 card slot, so that leaves you with 51 cards to choose from.
I see the bare beginnings of either an aristocrats or a reanimator deck. In my opinion you should push more for aristocrats. It can draw you tons of cards and gain you quite a lot of life. There's no harm in keeping some reanimation spells in there though.
You want a good number of sacrifice outlets. I haven't heard of what a hard number should be so I'd shoot for at least 5. Here's a list of some that I remember off hand:
Infernal Tribute <- has a funny synergy with Spine of Ish Sah
Altar of Dementia
Disciple of Griselbrand
Lampad of Death's Vigil
For this strategy you'll need recurring creatures or token generators
Bridge from Below
Open the Graves
Blood Artist is a staple
Plunge into Darkness is something you might want for the pure lifegain of 3 per creature you sacrifice. Not sure that you want to use the "exile a bunch of your deck" too often.
Shadows of the Past
and so forth. I'd look through some already built aristocrats decks to see exactly whether you want to take that strategy.
Oh yeah, for utility lands I'd choose any of the following within your price range:
Geier Reach Sanitarium

Nice list! You might like these: Nature's Revolt, Squandered Resources, Cauldron of Souls, Blighted Woodland, Jund Panorama, Grim Backwoods, Pitiless Plunderer (this guy is really cool cuz sacking the treasures triggers Mazirek), Fleshbag Marauder, Tribute to the Wild, Nim Devourer (you can sack the nim to itself for its ability, so it essentially gives you the ability to pay BB: put a + counter on all your dudes), Sporeback Troll, Oona's Blackguard, Winding Constrictor

Something else to add: a way to recur artifacts seems extremely important, if there were cards that could do this without deviating from the plan too much, that could also make this deck much more efficient.
I have also come across Nim Devourer, which seems good, but I am not sure if this would be over-committing to the graveyard. Also, only being able to return this card to the battlefield is very restrictive.
