While acedawg4's solution is a good starting point, there is some information missing. I will give a complete overview of this boss and recommendations to defeat him.

The Necromancer is a rather simple boss, aside from floating to summon zombies, he is generally stationary, remaining on the right end of this area. He has only 2 attacks, either attack follows shortly after he summons zombies. The first is a blue electrical bolt shot from his staff, it doesn't to a great amount of damage, and can be avoided by jumping. The second attack shows up after depleting about 1/3 of his HP. A series of spikes sprout from the ground starting on the left side of the screen and traveling right, these can also be avoided by jumping but one should remember to jump toward the left, jumping straight up or to the right may have you landing on a spike. Use caution as these spikes are heavily damaging.

The Necromancer has a revolving shield - it is periodically vulnerable to certain attacks.

Black = Fully Shielded, Do not attack.
Yellow = Weak to Machine Gun & Explosive Gun.
Red = Weak to Fire.
Blue = Weak to Ice.

Your scythe is only useful to dispatch the zombies during this battle as you can not get close enough to the Necromancer to do any damage with it, his shield will push you back no matter the color. Using the matching projectile attack as noted above is the only way to do damage.

At this point in the game I had all the attacks / abilities fully upgraded, so certainly keep in mind what weapons you have upgraded and adjust accordingly. The Explosive Gun did the most damage for me - with it and the Energy Storage fully upgraded (on normal difficulty) one can deplete 3/4th of the Necromancer's HP during one cycle of the shield turning yellow.

Take your time and learn his cycle of attacks - I found it easier to hold off my attack when his shield was Red or Blue in favor of the Yellow shield so I didn't have to consistently swap weapons during battle. Hold out through a few zombie summons and spike / bolt attacks and you too can dispatch The Necromancer in no time.
