This is a classic Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar deck. The ultimate goal is to have one of the following: Zulaport Cutthroat , Wayward Servant , Plague Belcher , Diregraf Captain , Corpse Knight ; alongside the Gravecrawler constantly going back and forth.
There are some cards that allow this combo without Phyrexian Altar . Mikaeus, the Unhallowed can combo with Putrid Goblin . Both can also double sacrifice effects if they are alone for value without combo- ing off. Rooftop Storm can replace Phyrexian Altar or unlock Relentless Dead to replace Gravecrawler .
With a commander like Varina, Lich Queen , with a strong Draw/discard effect, we need cards to discard. Cards that can make incredible value for Windfall + Whispering Madness + Memory Jar while refilling our hand and filling the graveyard. From Under the Floorboards , Waste Not (for opponents), Reanimate , Stitch Together .

Paradox Engine is an interesting idea as it does give redundancy for Phyrexian Altar, the piece with the least amount of backups. I think to take enough advantage of this, I'd include more fast mana ( Mox Diamond plays well with Crucible of Worlds, Chrome Mox 's card disadvantage is mitigated a bit because we operate well without many cards).
Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and Undead Augur are my adds from Modern Horizons, with Cabal Therapist on my to-test list. I'm cutting Midnight Reaper and keeping Grim Haruspex for now (the zombie type is nice on the Reaper but no life loss on the Haruspex is probably worth more to me).
I'm sure the change to Gisa and Geralf will have some advantages. Counterspells alone will help you not lose and I know zombies have some combo potential in Dimir with
. I can't follow you there though; I have too much fondness for Liliana and love challenging myself to make the best mono-coloured decks.
I'll follow that decklist on TappedOut and put in my two cents though, if you like.

olivebagel thanks so much for giving some feedback!
The reason I like Desecrated Tomb and Debt to the Deathless is because I'f you have a Phyrexian Altar out as well as a Gravecrawler and Rooftop Storm you can make infinite bats to sack and you can kill the table. But maybe you're right, maybe ita not reliable enough.
Thanks again! :)

They are replacement effects that allow you to cast for an alternate cost. This language is used on cards with a static effect, such as As Foretold, Rooftop Storm, etc.
“Without paying its mana cost” is used in different situations, such as part of the resolution of a spell or ability.
