Thanks! The reason I don't include Squad Hawk is because I prefer interaction over value in an aggro deck like this. Hawk wouldn't, for example, be able to protect your Pride of the Clouds from a Path like Spellstutter Sprite can. Tempo plays like that help you eke out wins, plus there are already a few value-generating cards like Curious Obsession , Vesperlark and Smuggler's Copter in the deck.

I love zombies. I have a few things to say about your deck that I think you should consider though. In your sideboard, you play Engineered Explosives , this is very bad in mono black because you can only get up to 1 counter on it. for mono colored decks, a similar effect can be achieved with Blast Zone or more conventionally Ratchet Bomb . About Undead Augur , life is worth far less than a card, and being able to replace zombies that have died is what I think puts this tribe over the top. Basically, I dont think lifeloss is going to be a problem, as this is the only card that will deal damage to you in your entire deck. Being mono colored means you dont take damage from your lands, making this card all the much safer. now about lands, Mutavault is awesome, but I am not sure if it has a place in zombies. The problem is that zombies require a lot of black mana, and being stuck with a Mutavault instead of another black source can be backbreaking. I see you have Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to solve that, but it can really only be a one of, so it doesn't do a good job of solving the problem. Also Relentless Dead is Awesome, I'd try to run 4. Also Consider adding Aether Vial , trust me it is very good being able to play an instant speed Undead Augur or Carrion Feeder , or be able to put a Relentless Dead on the battlefield with mana open on turn 3 vs a heavy removal deck.

In short this is what I would say:

-3 Zulaport Cutthroat

+2 Relentless Dead

+1 Zombie Lord

-1 Engineered Explosives (Sideboard)

+1 Ratchet Bomb (Sideboard)

+4 Aether Vial

-4 Something, rly up to you, probably Smuggler's Copter and something else.

Anyways, awesome deck, you had some stuff in there that I never heard of and I am 100% adding now. Feel free to check out the deck I made, http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/16-06-19-mono-black-zombies/?cb=1560

One thing to note about the BW deck is that its more of a value deck than aggro deck. one thing that I would say personally is that I think the deck need Smuggler's Copter . Probably the best rate on a vehicle. Even if you dont fully use the discard part in its looting ability, having 3 power for 2 mana and being able to sift through your deck is amazing. Playing around with the discard is something that you can play with after you take that into account. If you do end up playing with copter, Bloodghast sounds significantly stronger than Scrapheap Scrounger to me.

Only having one discard outlet for Echo seems like a potential hazard to me. Maybe consider Smuggler's Copter ? It's a beater to close out the game, it can stick Echo in the bin to actually cast it, and everything can crew it.

This deck looks sweet! Why Smuggler's Copter though?

Interesting deck, I think you should go lore down the efficient discard route than the Minotaur theme.

I’d run a Smuggler's Copter and Ruthless Sniper

Maybe cut some of the common Minotaurs and replace them with some other options in your sideboard that would be more valuable? I’m not sure, I’ve been trying to build a v similar deck for a long time and have always struggled to make it click! So maybe I’m not the best to listen to!

Happy brewing

I've not paid as much attention to War of The Spark as I should have, so the Ugin, the Ineffable is a nice surprise. Smuggler's Copter should be in this with such a focus on vehicles, though I don't like adding discard into decks unless I have some sort of recursion. I'll stick in the maybeboard for now and decide when I play a few more games.

Also, you're totally missing out on Smuggler's Copter . Tezzeret, Artifice Master offers you draw as well as a way to create more artifacts that can crew your vehicles. Last thing I can immediately think of off the top of my head is Mechanized Production , which could go completely crazy with your deck if you got it out on the right artifacts.
