Cursed Minotaur Discussion

Since your deck is more aggressive, and one of the win conditions is Approach of the Second Sun, Read the Bones can potentially dig you 4 cards deeper to your win condition. Possible cuts are Lay Bare the Heart and possibly a Cursed Minotaur.
Hope this helps!

So I don't know if this is relevant to your decisions or not but I started with this deck in mind and then tweaked the crap out of it (mostly due to the cards I had on hand) and it turned into a double tribal Zombie Minotaur deck with the intention of providing buffs to Neheb, the Eternal and Cursed Minotaur.
The end result looked nothing like your deck obviously but I just wanted to mention how well The Scorpion God played for me. I don't know your meta but mine was pretty fast at standard showdown this week. I played against Ramunap Red (which blew me out) A black white token and a Naya Dinos deck.
Scorpy was a wonderful play and finisher. Even without focusing on -1/-1 counters his ability was taking out 1 or 2 creatures a turn against these decks that like to run fast creatures and such. In the process he was drawing me mid game fuel that I otherwise would have been topdecking at that point. He's obviously less effective against creatureless or near creatureless control decks but he's easily sided out. I was also able to get him on the board the turn following a Neheb, the Eternal once and the extra mana from neheb ended up helping me wipe her board post combat :)
Scorpy doesn't fit everywhere but he is great mid/late game fuel against decks running weenies. Something you can't get a lot of in rakdos colors.

Fun deck! You seem really aggressive, so I would take out expensive cards like Gravedigger, Liliana's Mastery, and Liliana, Death's Majesty in favor of some cheaper threats like additional Cursed Minotaur and Desiccated Naga. It will probably help you run smoother, as you'll more often be able to curve out properly. Also, if your curve becomes that low, you can probably cut the 23rd Swamp for an extra Skulduggery as well. Good luck!

I love the deck and the theme.. ZOMBIES!!!
However, I feel as if some cards that I found are quite sub-par like Sparring Mummy and maybe even the Cursed Minotaur have crept themselves into the deck leaving the great cards like Wayward Servant and Lord of the Accursed feeling left out (you only have 2 copies of each).
Also, I feel like your deck has pretty low mana costs as a whole (your average CMC is 2.83), so I would recommend taking out maybe 1 or 2 for maybe some Liliana's Mastery - I personally love this card :)
See how that runs.
Other cards you might want to take a closer look at are:
Binding Mummy - the tap is very nice.
More Ammit Eternals - I think they are quite sweet.
Also, maybe check out if there is some card draw, but otherwise +1!

I agree with the advice to cut back on the 3 drops, so suggesting Cursed Minotaur probably isn't going to help, unless you explain what to take out for it.

First off, what type of deck are you wanting? You said you wanted to build around nicol bolas. Do you want to stay a zombie deck as well? If so, i will give you some suggestions
you need to drop the 3 costs down. Spellweaver Eternal is a decent 2 drop thatcan become bigger when casting noncreature spells.
Cursed Minotaur is good when your lords are already out. He becomes big and can already have menace without havig to tap a lord.
i've personally not liked The Scorpion God so my opinion on him is a but biased. That said i dont know how it would work in this deck. I would personally add in card draw effects or burn in red such as Tormenting Voice, Abrade, Magma Spray, or Shock
Just suggestions, i like the idea of the deck either way as i planned on building zombies awhile ago but never got around to it.

Cool Cool, Yeah I had Bontu's Last Reckoning in mind and have not sprung to purchase a set of Fatal Push but maybe i should just go for it. Just not sure if it will take me from like getting 2/2 at FNM to more 3/2 and higher spendng money on Fatal Push. But I feel it is possible.
Do you think Dread Wanderer would be just a good replacement for Night Market Lookout?

I know there's a rationale for putting in Cursed Minotaur, but that card should be replaced by something that gives more value. I've run it before - it carries no synergies and is a mana sink for a card with short-term, if any value.
