For sure add Sol Ring.
Lower CMC mana rocks: Arcane Signet, Talisman of Dominance, Dimir Signet that ETB untapped to make black mana are good with Zombies. K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is not a Zombie, but has a powerful ability when playing a lot of black cards. He makes black mana costs able to be paid for with 2 life instead of mana. Make him huge with Gravecrawler and other black Zombies.
Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Bubbling Muck. Rituals are options for ramp especially Dark which can help to cast Scarab fast. Soldevi Adnate not a Zombie, but can be repeatable sac of Zombies to make black mana.

Which have been amazing cards for me.

Shade's Form is definitely one to look at to get extra Gary triggers. Unhallowed Pact, Unholy Indenture, Undying Evil, Supernatural Stamina, and Abnormal Endurance are some others you might look into.
Defile is a good removal option.
Syphon Mind would be a good draw spell.

@iammute: Changeling Berserker is definitely a card I would include if I was looking to optimize the deck to near-cEDH levels, but I don't think it's what I'm going for here. As backward as it might sound, I don't actually want to go infinite more than I already do. In my playgroup, winning via infinite combo once every other night is fine, but people start getting a little too salty for my tastes if the combos happen more often than that.
@X-Factor11105: Oh don't worry, this deck is one of my forever decks. It's never getting taken apart, and I typically update it every time a new set comes out. I'm still in the middle of updating the description, but I should have an update with my new additions posted soon.
as for your suggestions:
the myr are good, but my meta runs way too much removal for them to be reliable. I don't think Priest of Gix is going to do much for me, as I don't really have any good ways of recurring him that wouldn't be better spent on something like Solemn Simulacrum or a dragon.
Soldevi Adnate is really cool, but suffers from the same weaknesses as the myr (people would kill it), and since most of the creatures in the deck are mono-red I don't think I'd be able to use it all that effectively.
Dread Return is super awesome. I used to run it, but space is incredibly tight here and it ended up getting cut in favor of cheaper/more versatile reanimation.
Thanks for the suggestions both of you! I'm very picky about what makes the cut in this deck, but I'm always looking for new things to try out.

I hope you're still working on this deck! I'd love to know if you've made any updates since October.
A few ideas:
Creature sac/ramp: Soldevi Adnate could work really well in this build with all the high CMC gold dragons, especially if they're re-animated and going to be binned at the end step.

So I have been playing Chainer for a while now. I can give a bit of insight. First off I do like your list. So now into the thick of it. Chainer is a really mana hungry deck. Strands of Night is an amazing card but in my playing you need a card like Crucible of Worlds to get around the sac clause. All in all it is a fine card if you want to invest more slots to it. Nim Deathmantle No .... this card requires to much for it to be good. paired with a Grave Titan and an Ashnod's Altar is great but that turns into a 3 card combo. IMO not worth it. Lake of the Dead can be good if you add both of the other cards listed above. Soldevi Adnate best card. As long as you have a sac outlet on board and he never gets exiled he is amazing. Even if he does die just animate him back. As far as Pitiless Plunderer great card if you can sac alot. Generates mana witch is nice. As for Gauntlet of Power i mean if you feel as if you need that then go for it. I personally like the Plunderer better because of the fact that it is a creature. It is very hard for black to interact with artifacts and get them back. (Side note I know it can be done but not worth the ammount of slots needed again IMO) As for the cuts do not cut Villis , he is amazing card advantage. Priest is fine if you can make tokens or just have a good grip on the board state. Disciple is an okay card i cut and add it all the time. I also think you have too many cutie lands. swamps are your best friend in the deck along with urborg.

Hey, already been suggested, but Vilis is amazing with Erebos. It's also amazing with K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth because then you're drawing cards when paying Phyrexian mana (life) for black spells you cast. Vilis is a big upgrade for Harvester of Souls .
Some other upgrades to consider:
- Necropotence > Dark Prophecy
- Sol Ring > Vedalken Orrery
- Viscera Seer > Undercity Informer
- Dark Ritual > Weaponcraft Enthusiast
- Crypt Ghast > Revel in Riches
- Soldevi Adnate > Pilgrim's Eye
- Sidisi, Undead Vizier > Pitiless Plunderer
- Buried Alive > Vampiric Rites
- Animate Dead > Cadaver Imp
- Apprentice Necromancer > Whisper, Blood Liturgist
- Plaguecrafter > Merciless Executioner
- Murderous Rider > Murder
- Defile > Doom Blade
Good luck with your deck.
