Hey Hercules23, I think with Zombie tribal it's better to utilize Scarab with your opponent's creatures rather than your own. Exiling your own Zombies to embalm seems counter productive since Zombies want to rely on the graveyard and the Zombie combos require Zombies coming back from the graveyard. Cards such as Patriarch's Bidding and Zombie Apocalypse are powerful tribal reanimation that has less of an effect when you don't have Zombies in your graveyard because you exiled them. Exiling your opponents creatures and turning them into Zombies is an added bonus for Zombie tribal.
Orb, Dementia are powerful affects if you want to use Scarab against your opponents as long as your opponents are playing creatures. I would only play Orb though if you also include ways to recur some noncreature permanents/spells which I suggested some in my last comment. The only reason I suggested to cut Grounds is because it only really has an effect on Scarab which is too minimal. If you want to keep Grounds for Scarab keep it; after all it's only a one drop therefore realistically you will always be able to cast it.
Scarab is slow reanimation being a five drop that you then have to pay additional mana to embalm thus to improve reanimation you could include some faster ways to reanimate:
- Entomb and Reanimate is as fast as you can get.
- Razaketh, the Foulblooded would improve reanimation and he can be a sac outlet with Zombies to tutor especially with Gravecrawler.
- I would only play Mikaeus if he's part of a combo such as Walking Ballista + Carrion Feeder . Mikaeus without a combo is a subpar reanimation target.

You may choose not to untap Research Supplies during your untap step.
At the beginning of your upkeep, if Research Supplies is tapped, sacrifice it unless you pay and put a charge counter on it.
, Discard a card: Gain 1 life.
Inspired - When Research Supplies becomes untapped, remove all charge counters from it and draw that many cards.

Have you thought about Zombie Apocalypse ? It's a fun pseudo-wrath reanimation thing.

I'm very happy to see Tormod, the Desecrator in here! He is one of my favourite cards from that set. I have him in two different zombie decks (one of which he is a partner commander) because I love his effect so much.
There are a few other things that will give you bonuses for removing things from your graveyard. I'm not sure how much they fit your theme, but Syr Konrad, the Grim is fun for the ping damage, and Desecrated Tomb gives you bats!
If you do end up including these, I would definitely recommend Zombie Apocalypse too for the combos you could get off.
This looks like a fun deck, either way. Good job!

Second and Third Public Game: We Survived game 1 by the skin of our teeth even dropping to 1 before Clearing the Horde of its field and Library. Game 2 we kept the Horde at clear of creatures and were smashing them into oblivion... Our arrogance was our downfall as the Horde flipped Zombie Apocalypse off the top killing all humans and draining the Survivors for 73 (Survivors were at 68), even if the players managed to survive the Apocalypse, the Horde had over 100 Hungry Zombies ready to go in for the kill.

I love the deck!
I've really wanted to mess around with Tombstone Stairwell, but I have yet to get my hands on a copy.
I'm curious how Alhammarret's Archive and Bone Miser have worked for you. I tried the Archive for a bit, but found myself wishing I just had another zombie to slam more often than not, but admittedly I cut it pretty early in testing. Miser is something I've considered adding because it synergizes so well with Varina, but I'm skeptical that it's impactful enough at 5 mana.
I feel like Sorin could easily be swapped out for Liliana, Death's Majesty. It reanimates anything for -3 and it's +1 advances your Living Death/Zombie Apocalypse shenanigans while netting a zombie. For 1 extra that seems a little more on the nose.
My build tosses in The Scarab God as well because it's just bonkers if you go wide and nobody has a board wipe on hand. It can single handedly take over games and can get you back on board after the aforementioned board wipe.

Okay bro I love you deck idea. How are you feelings about adding Josu Vess, Lich Knight Rise from the Tides or even Zombie Apocalypse they could all potentially boost the zombe aspect of the deck let me know what you would substitute for them because I really want to go in this direction for my Wrexial deck. Also Fleet Swallower could be devastating combined with Traumatize Just let me know your thoughts about them and whether or not you think they'd be worth adding. Thanks!
