If I were you I'd add Dark Ritual. It's a great way to start the first few rounds, and also add Geralf, Visionary Stitcher it's a good way to make the zombies so much more terrifying. If you wanna spring for another 20$ add Relentless Dead it's a great way to take advantage of Wilhelt's ability and not lose anything.

Maybe the closest other ones are Malevolent Awakening and Soul of Innistrad. Malevolent Awakening is also conditional with a creature sacrifice instead of paying life or discarding a card but can be used at instant speed. Soul of Innistrad has a steep mana cost but you did not say if that was a limiting factor.
If creature sacrifice as part of the cost is okay and you have a sacrifice outlet then there are creatures which can do the same thing if you have 2 copies of them to create a cycle like with Relentless Dead, Dutiful Attendant, Entomber Exarch, and Gravedigger.
I don't think Red has any graveyard recovery. Red's tactic is more like Sneak Attack or similar.

You could consider Gravecrawler, Coat of Arms , Relentless Dead , Metallic Mimic , Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Door of Destinies. You might know about these already and they are somewhat expensive but they are very powerful in zombie lists.

I've thought about the non target removal you mention.
I think I'm going to try and get combo and tutors piece by piece slowly....

Zombies are a very aggro deck. Aether Vial is better suited to midrange gameplans, and will only slow you down here, i’d suggest ditching them, and going up to 20 lands.
Waaay too many 3 drops, i’d suggest limiting yourself to 8 cards. If it were me, that would be in the form of playsets of Geralf's Messenger and Geralf, Visionary Stitcher, as they’ll give you the best “bang for buck” at the top end of the spectrum.
Run the full playset of Carrion Feeder, as it just works soo well alongside Gravecrawler and Champion of the Perished. Feeder is one of the best zombies for the zombie archtype as it gives you a ton of utility.
Undead Augur is a great 2-drop, and Tainted Adversary isn’t bad. But Graveyard Marshal and Relentless Dead don’t seem great. If you need an additional 2-drop, i’d suggest Bladestitched Skaab, or Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia
you need more interaction to guarantee you can wear your opponent down. I’d suggest 8 killspells total. Something like a playset of Fatal Push and Infernal Grasp should work well. Dismember is fine, but can cause problems if you’re up against burn.

Scottysnacktime, thanks for your comment! I’m glad you were able to use the structure of the deck. I’ve been refining it for a while. I’m also a big fan of Tidehollow Sculler, it’s one of my favorite zombies of all time. I’d love to hear any insight you may have.
pinto_bean1324, thanks for the compliment and suggestion of Relentless Dead! You and several other people including Balaam__ have been encouraging me to run it for a while, but I have been hesitant since I only have Carrion Feeder as a sacrifice outlet, and my deck is so lean on mana. So I’m going to give it a shot. I squeezed a couple Relentless Dead in and I’m going to see if they help. Lately my Skaab Ruinators have been killed pretty quickly and extra recursion may be useful.
