I might be coming back to the forums for a time as I'm getting back into casual magic! Anyways, as a welcome back present, I have spent the last while hunting through the gatherer (torturous) to cobble together a semi decent Necrotic Army deck.
4 x Gravecrawler
The biggest issue I see is that you pretty much have only one form of removal, and it's not even going to be easy to activate on will given that you Festering Goblin tokens have to die for you to give another creature -1/-1. Which means Cemetary Reaper would have to target stuff in your own graveyard (unless you're getting trades in combat), in which case your graveyard recursion becomes almost useless.
Fleshbag Marauder is on theme, cheap, and can be recurred or fed to Cemetary Reaper. Skinrender is another solid option. Besides that, black has all sorts of awesome spot removal. Geth's Verdict , Go for the Throat , Ultimate Price , Tragic Slip etc.
You're also susceptible to non-creatures your opponent plays when you're going mono black, so targetted hand hate, like Duress and Thoughtseize and be good options.
needs more two drops
dump the stitch togethers and the Ghoulcaller's Chant. Many games will not have creatures in the graveyard to grab
none of the creatures are worth recovering except the lich
