I would love to see an updated version of this deck. Some recent cards I have personally found to be amazing are: Liliana, Dreadhorde General , Undead Augur , Dreadhorde Invasion , Murderous Rider , Bolas's Citadel and Nyx Lotus .

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, 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.
I hope this helps!

Crow-Umbra: Broodbirth draws 9 if all the copies hit -- not BAD, but we can draw 9 for 2 mana with Undead Augur/Floating-Dream Zubera. I'm completely spoiled, I don't want to pay 5 mana for the cards XD
The Fell Specter is an interesting idea, I'll think about that! It's a shame that it doesn't say "each player discard"... Still, I've cut the big discard effects here because my playgroup was PISSED about them.

I love Zombies! Probably one of the first tribes that got me interested in tribal decks, after I saw the power of my friend's Zombie deck. +1 from me just for Zombies!
Question 0: Before we can offer any meaningful help, we need to know if you truly mean this to be a deck for the Modern format? Or will it be casual and you won't care about format that much?
(As an aside, when I first started Magic and joined T/O, I didn't really understand that Modern was a competitive format and I just labeled any deck that could be legal in Modern as Modern. LoL. Pretty sure some of my decks on T/O still mistakenly have Modern set when really they should be Casual!)
I'm going to offer my advice assuming you want it to be Modern, but if you're going more for a casual build, then feel free to ignore some of this.
I would remove the "swamps matter" subtheme, as you don't really have ways to dump extra swamps onto the battlefield nor do you take full advantage of it (where is Defile for example?). Korlash might be worth keeping, since he's a zombie, but get rid of both Nightmare and Squelching Leeches, as they're not even zombies and they're on the higher end of CMC. Personally, I'd get rid of Lashwrithe as well, but if you really love the card and want to keep it, at least you can equip that to a zombie.
Then I would choose between full-on zombie tribal including tokens, or devotion and recursion. Neither of the latter play nicely with tokens, which don't have mana costs for devotion or stay in the graveyard for recursion. A few incidental tokens are fine, but cards like Moan of the Unhallowed and Shamble Back are not synergistic at all with devotion/recursion.
Next, are you more interested in recurring your graveyard or exiling it for tokens? I.e. do you want to do Ghoulraiser, Gravecrawler, Lord of the Undead, etc., or do you want to do Cemetery Reaper, Graveyard Marshal, Tymaret, etc.? You can't do both. Personally, I'd go the recursion route, add more ways to sac your zombies for value, and cycle them in and out of the graveyard at will.
So in summary, I would go with 1) zombie aggro including tokens, or 2) zombie recursion, with a subtheme of devotion for Gray Merchant. Going either route, I'd cut Nightmare, Leeches, Lashwrithe, and Tymaret (he's not a zombie, and provides only inefficient graveyard hate). If you go route 2, I'd also cut the sorceries Moan and Shamble. That's at minimum 8 cards out. What you add depends on which game plan you choose.
You didn't label this deck as "budget", so if you can afford it, Cavern of Souls is a must-include land in any tribal deck.
I don't like Sands of Delirium. It's only function is self-mill and there's more efficient ways to do self-mill. You also currently don't take full advantage of self-mill, with things like Dredge or Flashback-style effects. If you go full force into graveyard synergies, then self-mill is important, but even then, I'd play Stitcher's Supplier over Sands. For 1 mana, you can easily get 6 cards into your graveyard, and you can easily recur him, and he's a zombie that can attack. That would take 9 mana with Sands, which is just a dead artifact.
Lastly, some sacrifice options: Gnawing Zombie isn't amazing, but the effect is relevant. I would replace Sign in Blood with Village Rites — same card draw, but one less mana, instant speed, and no life loss. You also have cards that like to die, like Festering Mummy, Black Cat, Tattered Mummy, and the above-mentioned Stitcher's Supplier.
Sorry for the wall of text. I just love zombies! So I hope at least something in there was useful.

Tried to make the deck a little bit more consistent and with a couple more draw and planeswalker cards. In addition, the creatures added give a bit more staying power and other abilities instead of just strictly attacking, although that's still the main mode of winning. Also went a bit more in on +1/+1 counters as well.
-1 Changeling Sentinel -1 Moonglove Changeling -1 Valiant Changeling -1 Undead Augur -1 Venom Sliver -1 King of the Pride -1 Winding Constrictor -1 Neoform -1 Tatyova, Benthic Druid -1 Vastwood Surge -1 Bloodline Keeper Flip -1 Chromatic Lantern +1 Skyshroud Claim +1 Despark +1 Oath of Ajani +1 Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter +1 Kaya, Ghost Assassin +1 Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver +1 Teferi, Time Raveler +1 Crystalline Crawler +1 Tendershoot Dryad +1 Twilight Prophet +1 Sanctum Seeker +1 Shalai, Voice of Plenty

MarrecoMTG Good to hear you like the deck! Don't underestimate yours too! Great build +1. Strionic Resonator is a great utility card and you can use it with so many other cards in the deck besides The Scarab God, Undead Augur, an extra card draw, Diregraf Colossus an extra tapped zombie, Loyal Subordinate another 3 life, etc. Lithoform Engine is a great card, but you need a Dramatic Reversal type effect to make it really effective. It also costs more to cast and activate, total, instead of if you choose the "Strionic" effect the first time.

Thanks a lot multimedia, those are some great tips! I'm a very casual player and I don't really like combos, but the Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar + Undead Augur/Diregraf Captain I really like. I don't think it's overpowered, it takes 3 cards and I won't really tutor except maybe for the Gravecrawler with Buried Alive.
I've changed many cards in the deck for a better manacurve and a lower CMC. I think the deck is actually starting to be really nice. Any further tips or advice is definitely welcome!
