I’m not a fan of either Mortician Beetle or Reassembling Skeleton. The Beetle just feels like it’ll be hard to get value from, and the Skeleton just feels waay too slow/clumsy. I’d suggest using Blisterpod and Shambling Ghast instead, as these both have stronger death triggers, and can chump-block in the early game to help ramp you into the spells that matter.
Tap lands are almost always a terrible idea. You’re only running 2 colours so running just basics should be fine, and trip you up less often, than running stuff like Evolving Wilds. I’d suggest just playing 11x Swamp, 11x Forest, 2x Golgari Rot Farm

Welcome to the format and nice budget list! I've seen a slightly upgraded version of this adding Green for Renegade Rallier and Kaya's Ghostform for an infinte combo. Adding green allowed them to play Collected Company to find the pieces easier. All you need is a sacrifice outlet (they ran Cartel Aristocrat along with Woe Strider). You have Kaya's Ghostform attached to Renegade Rallier, sacrifice the Rallier, it triggers the enter the battlefield trigger you attach Kaya's Ghostform from the graveyard to the Rallier and repeat along with a creature like Zulaport Cutthroat to deal damage while doing it.
It's a pretty cool deck I would suggest at least another sacrifice outlet as you only have Cartel Aristocrat and Priest of Forgotten Gods that has to tap to activate. There is most likely another combo with Bontu's Monument and Oathsworn Vampire as well. Honestly the rest of the deck and the sideboard look pretty good.

I love zombie decks! It’s one of my favorite themes but I stayed mono-black with mine. But I know there are good black/blue zombie cards like one that will give all zombie tokens Hexproof I believe or another that gives them flying. Just use an Advanced Search on Scryfall.com to find them. When it comes to non-mono black, I just don’t prefer the “mill” theme that comes with blue; I love the reanimated swarm theme black focuses on. Anyways, here is the "zombie" I know:
For added consistency with Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver, you could consider Diregraf Colossus and Headless Rider. I know they don’t work nicely with the Death Tyrant + Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver combo but here is how all 3 of them are really nice:
- Sac Gravecrawler to Phyrexian Altar with Diregraf Colossus, Headless Rider, and/or Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver = Infinite Zombie Tokens
- In that combo, subing Phyrexian Altar out with cards like Carrion Feeder = 1Zombie per 1Swamp And Carrion Feeder Gets Big
As a Rooftop Storm backup, you may want to consider Liliana, Untouched By Death (-3 ability). Her with Shambling Ghast (Search the Body) plus a sac outlet; or, Her with Phyrexian Altar and any 1 drop zombie make a 1 turn infinite cycle fueling any ETB and death triggers. Liliana, Untouched By Death's -3 ability effectively turns any 1 drop zombie like Shambling Ghast, Carrion Feeder, Champion of the Perished, and Cryptbreaker -into- Gravecrawlers for 1 turn. Basically, she'll increase your consistency getting your combos rolling.
- Champion of the Perished is really good when your constantly making zombies ETB.
- Consider using Blasting Station as a sac outlet too. For example, any time you sac with the station during a combo, the combo will also do 1-dmg per cycle. And, if the combo is making zombies, the station will untap too.
- Black Market can also get out of hand when doing sac combos. It can really help when the combo is not infinite. It also makes people think harder about the cost of boardwiping.
Anyways cool seeing the Death Tyrant + Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver combo; I hadn’t seen that one yet!

I don't have any experience with Historic, but could Shambling Ghast get in here? As a Zombie that begs to be sacrificed, it feels like it would fit in well.

You may want to consider Liliana, Untouched By Death (-3 ability) and Shambling Ghast (Search the Body) plus a sac outlet. Those together make a 1 turn infinite cycle good for growing Carrion Feeder, growing Champion of the Perished, and generating infinite zombie tokens like Phyrexian Altar can. Liliana, Untouched By Death's -3 ability effectively turns Shambling Ghast, Carrion Feeder, Champion of the Perished, and Cryptbreaker into Gravecrawlers for 1 turn. Basically, she'll increase your consistency getting those infinite (and per mana) combos rolling.

Taking out Foulmire Knight may actually push your curve up too high, you do want 7-8 one drop creatures. Take out Geralf, Visionary Stitcher instead, since the Death Baron gives enough evasion with the deathtouch and he does not get zombie effects. Shambling Ghast may better than Foulmire Knight because he can kill and ramp, but that depends on how relevant deathtouch is in your meta.
