Looks fun! I like building around Bogbrew Witch and her posse, since they're such unusual effects in Magic. Plus, wearing your opponent down by sacrificing stuff is also pretty fun - it's like winning by remote control. Having said that, I can think of a few ways you might be able to improve this build!
Witch of the Moors is a very cool way to bring stuff back, but since you only have a couple and she's a lot of mana... well, you probably can't always rely on her. Since you're running lots of ways to sacrifice guys, it might be wise to invest in little critters who can bring themselves back! Reassembling Skeleton, Persistent Specimen and Gutterbones are all solid examples, though depending on your budget, Bloodghast and Nether Traitor are probably upgrades.
Since you're trying to wear your opponent down via sacrificing little critters, there are a number of ways to ensure it happens at a good pace - Bastion of Remembrance, Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist are all classic options!
You might also prefer Vampiric Rites to Witch's Cauldron. The flavour isn't quite as appropriate, but being able to use it multiple times in one turn is bound to come up at some point. Enchantments usually seem to get blown up less frequently than artifacts in my experience, too!

Awesome deck my man! I absolutely love Hapatra and think she is really fun! Feel free to check out my own build and see if there is anything in there you like: Hapatra, Vizier of Plagues
Keep it up man! Really fun to play :)

Out of curiosity, have you ever thought about running Academy Rector? He's a pretty solid card that cares about going to the graveyard. It could allow you to immediately put into play our strong Enchantments like Necropotence, Bolas's Citadel, Land Tax, Grave Pact, Bastion of Remembrance - whichever you need most at the given time.
Also, what are your thoughts on Ranger-Captain of Eos? He could tutor up Viscera Seer, Carrion Feeder or sac fodder if needed. He also can stop some of the annoying blue players from countering our spells if needed by saying him.
As always, I'm Looking forward to hearing your feedback! :) Thanks!

You could be interested in Ruinous Ultimatum.
And i think, if you're playing with BW-colours Damn is more flexible than Damnation or Wrath of God Bastion of Remembrance would fit perfectly into the plan, too. Even though he does not produce humans, the Synergy of Xathrid Necromancer in this deck wold be enormous! And Titan Hunter performed in our meta extremly well.

i would suggest adding more tutors. also get rid of your bad zombies as this is an infinite combo deck and not a zombie tribal deck. zombies is more the subtheme. if you want to go into the zombie tribal deck consider adding more lords like Death Baron and Lord of the Accursed. other than that I would add some more staples in black aristocrats like Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Viscera Seer, Bolas's Citadel, and Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact. Also just good black cards are Diabolic Intent, Necropotence, Carrion Feeder, Deadly Rollick, Grim Haruspex, Grim Tutor, Bastion of Remembrance, Butcher of Malakir, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Imperial Seal, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and Decree of Pain. also Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion is a good combo. looks like a good idea but i would get rid of all those 1-2 mana zombies that have no effect of the game. enjoy the deck!

JackMinds a classic and yes I have run it in the deck previously. Great card, and it synergizes well with things like Infernal Genesis and Bastion of Remembrance. I have a host of reasons I'm not running it now, I'll have to add it to the notable exclusions, so thank you for the suggestion. I have a lot of repeatable draw already (particularly from the walkers), I'm not usually trying to get crazy value from death shenanigans, and it's always difficult to balance colorless spells since this deck does lean heavily on black devotion due to K'rrik. Most importantly, this is supposed to be a suicide black list that plays creatures only for them to die to Massacre Girl's wipe, and that makes Clamp awkward to work with. If the deck is doing its job, Clamp has nothing to gain value from, and if Clamp is doing it's job, MG can whiff. I suggest having a couple sac outlets that can react to MG's trigger at instant speed. All that aside though, I cut Clamp for things that felt more fun and excited my playgroup more. The deck is in a pretty optimized spot overall, so I'm currently excluding similar staples and combo pieces in order to make room to test silly stuff like VecnaTron.

There are more suggestions, but those are the bigger ones. Here's a deck of mine that follows the same concept. It isn't standard 2022 legal but has a lot of cards that are. Check it out.

I have another sacrifice deck that's in black and white, and is standard 2022 legal. Check it out as well.

Housegheist I'll consider Plumb the Forbidden, because I do need more draw power in here. I've actually been thinking about adding Life's Legacy for the same reason, and in a lot of ways I like that even better for this deck than Plumb Forb. Either way, the problem then becomes what to cut from the list to fit either of them.
Which is why I would turn down Bastion of Remembrance. In any other Mazirek deck, that card (and many others you don't see on this list) would be an automatic include. Here, however, I need the space to smash in as many Squirrel spells as possible. So that, Viscera Seer, Zulaport Cutthroat and/or Blood Artist, etc. etc. etc., did not make the cut.
Thanks for checking in!
