I like the prison/mill strategy. It really makes me miss my old Varina deck. Have you considered Shepherd of Rot or Lochmere Serpent ? I found them to be excellent includes in my previous build. The Shepherd can suddenly blow out opponents if your steadily increasing zombie hoard can't get through plus he sees your opponents' zombies and Varina's life-gain keeps your life total at reasonable levels. The Serpent is excellent discard fodder that you can recur for good effects.

I've decided to make more than one list but each one should be helpful to you in the future. Also, you don't need to put in all these cards. There are too many here for you to fit in the deck.

Liliana cards:

Liliana, Death's Majesty (can be a board wipe but don't count on it), Liliana, Dreadhorde General (also doubles as amazing card draw), Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Liliana, the Last Hope, and Liliana, Untouched By Death (has a removal ability).

Zombie tribal cards:

Shepherd of Rot, Lord of the Accursed, Risen Executioner, Relentless Dead, Field of the Dead, Undead Augur (also card advantage), Havengul Runebinder, Stitcher Geralf, Gleaming Overseer, Call to the Grave (rude card), Endless Ranks of the Dead (my favorite zombie tribal card), Graf Harvest, Graveborn Muse (also card advantage), and Josu Vess, Lich Knight.

Never/Return is zombie themed removal.

Necromantic Selection is a zombie themed board wipe.

Ramp cards:

Dimir Signet, Talisman of Dominance, Charcoal Diamond, Sky Diamond, and Fellwar Stone.

I hope this helps!

Liliana's Devotee, Necrotic Hex, Shepherd of Rot, Tormod, the Desecrator, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Dread Summons are cards to consider

Liliana's Standard Bearer and Midnight Reaper as draw engines.

Opposition Agent and Hullbreacher for control.

Tortured Existence and Graf Harvest make an incredible synergy.

Mindslicer and Living Death are a must.

Price of Fame works well with its surveil ability (you can discard creatures in graveyard and use them with your cmd), plus is an excellent removal.

You've been at this deck for a long time, so you probably don't want suggestions. However, have you thought about adding Gempalm Polluter? High CMC, but mostly utilized for its cycling ability, which is low cost. And moderately high power if it does end up on the battlefield somehow. Thought of it because you have Shepherd of Rot as the only card in the "Win" category. Figured 'Ol Gempalm could fit there as well.

I mean if you just want to make people lose life at CMC 2 there's always Sanctum of Stone Fangs (more niche: Lim-Dul's Hex & Shepherd of Rot

Leechridden Swamp is a thing but you've probably already seen it

Hi there, I would replace Aphemia, the Cacophony, you probably never use the exile abilty in a game. Good replacements for the same or less CMC are; Cryptbreaker Gravecrawler Relentless Dead Shepherd of Rot Undead Augur

If the purpose was flying, then Siren of the Silent Song might be a good include, with a bonus discard and mill effect, for The Scarab God to grab.
