Are your total units to work with:

20 Zombies
20 Skeletons
2 Necromancers

Do you have any other units?

He can't use a unit of only 5 marauders, they're 10+

I'd say a level 2 necro the book arkhan and dispel scroll-150 pts.

level 2 necro with staff of damnation and biting blade-150 pts.

10 zombies-60 points

12 skellys with spear, armour, champ and standard-140 points

You should be able to out magic him(same dispel dice as his power dice, 6 power dice and 2 bound spells) and you can raise models into your units and create new ones as well.

Should do fine, but I'd say that you might want to ditch the Biting Blade, spears and something else with a small cost and add a unit of 5 Dire Wolves.

Myself I'd take some Ghouls as well. They're very good in 500 pts armies (?).
