You could make Augmenting Automaton infinitely huge.

Bontu the Glorified could be used to not only kill your opponent, but also scry a bunch.

My personal favorite though would be to use Blighted Bat's ability an infinite number of times to make him extra hastey! ;P

I like what you got here. I'm thinking you might be on the budget side but if not:

Bomat Courier instead of Augmenting Automaton. I think Bomat is everything this deck wants as a quick drop.

Whirler Virtuoso instead of Tezzeret's Simulacrum and Weaponcraft Enthusiast. I like the Simulacrum combo with Tezzeret planeswalker but Whirler is just better with Saheeli and Tezzeret's Touch. Plus it opens up Aether Hub.

I would look at Maverick Thopterist with the extra slot.

Finally looking at Walking Ballista. Yeah he's not the greatest here but still a viable option.

Yeah tappeout can highlight the illegal cards for you. Buy a second copy of the deck and mesh the best cards together. Augmenting Automaton is good with Tezzeret's Touch.

Thanks for the comment! I don't know if you noticed that I also have two Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip which are legendary lands that have the ability to give me A LOT of mana in this deck.

As for Augmenting Automaton and Workshop Assistant, I just had them in here, because I was using cards that I currently owned to see if this was even a good idea before I put money into it. Augmenting Automaton has been a nice card to be able to pump up early game and block or get some attacks in. To be honest though I've not used Workshop Assistant's ability.

I'll look into adding Reckless Fireweaver into the deck and see what happens!

Thanks for the ideas!

ok, the Augmenting Automaton and the Workshop Assistants are just bad. Also, put in a few more lands, 16 isnt enough for any deck. Also, consider Reckless Fireweaver. U have many red sources, and helps deal a LOT of damage to their face.

I like more Red actually. Scrap Trawler has great recursion with the very diverse mana curve and it can edge in pretty decent damage with Pia's Revolution If you put your opponent in the right spot. Going back to the hand to avoid damage from Revolution still hits the graveyard to trigger the Trawler if there are legal targets. There are many sac outlets to exploit, such as Metalwork Colossus. Pitch the Colossus to something like Key to the City to get a hit in and then bring the Colosus back to hand by killing off two Constructs that will trigger both things and either keep your hand nice and full or edge in more damage and it's completely sustainable. If you ever actually play the Colossus it can die and bring back literally anything and then buy itself back as well. Good idea to run Hedron Archive for the mana and cost reduction just in case. He's also a construct, so there's that. All of this gives good reason to run Cathartic Reunion too to help draw through everything.

It's expensive, but I also like the idea of Aegis Automaton being able to bounce things with ETB abilities like the Gearhulks or even Ballista.

Also, there might be some power behind Augmenting Automaton and Crackdown Construct. Good old fashioned Looming Shade but it pumps both.

You can't overlook my favorite Construct in Standard either: Hedron Crawler, because mana :)

Just tossing ideas around. I'll throw together a Red build because I think that's where I'm most comfortable and see what happens.

I'm not exactly sure what you're trying theme you're trying to go with. I'm going to assume you want to have B/W aggro-zombies, and base my suggestions around that.

First of all, I would recommend putting some more land in there. I know you're deck does have much mana cost, but you can still get mana screwed. Secondly, I would put in some dual colored lands, if you have any.

Secondly, I would personally make this a Zombie tribal deck, so I would remove Augmenting Automaton, Devoted Crop-Mate, Fourth Bridge Prowler, and Gonti, Lord of Luxury, as none of them help your zombies at all.

There are quite a few zombie cards that I think would have a good place in this deck. Particularly Wayward Servant and Graf Harvest. Wayward Servant would allow you to deal some damage to your opponents each time you play or bring back a Zombie, and let you gain some life as well. Graf Harvest would make it much more of a pain to prevent your horde of zombies from eating your opponents brains, as they would all have menace.

I feel like this deck needs a little more removal, so I would look at Cruel Revival as it kills your opponents things and allows you to bring back your own. Dark Salvation would let you create more zombies and potentially kill a creature, or weaken it enough to kill it with a token.

A few more cards to look at for general zombie purposes would be Shamble Back, Cemetery Recruitment, and From Under the Floorboards.

If you decided to upgrade your budget, a few pricier options are Liliana's Mastery, Relentless Dead, Diregraf Colossus, and liliana, death's majesty.
