Hey there, I have some suggestions first would be Plaguecrafter you already have two similar effects but the control over the board is always welcome,because it is hard to outgrind Meren when she does her thing.
As Greg said try, to get your hands on as many 1 drop manadorks as you can,so you can speed up your engine because you will draw hate as Meren fast and if you are heavily disrupted in the early stages of the game it can get tricky to get a foothold on The board later on (sidenote Exploration and Burgeoning may also help).
I also enjoy Birthing Pod in my Meren deck as a reapeatable tutor/saccoutlet it can help to get the creatures you need in some situations.
Also maybe add 1-2 additional artifact/enchantment removal spells in case something like Torpor Orb hits the field which would screw you up otherwise.
Last as mentioned try to get your hands on a Viscera Seer free saccoutlets are very powerful in your deck and the cheaper they are the better they become, Phyrexian Tower would also be a major upgrade to your manabase.
Suggestions to cut: Winding Constrictor yes you have a +1counter subtheme but the creatures are either removed if they get too big or not online at all which makes this card more or less a vanillacreature
Wall of Blossoms :it's often used as a filler to thin your deck a little but you would profit more from a simple manadork
Eater of Hope to expensive for a a evasive beater and you could have better saccoutlets if you want a scary creature for The top of your curve Terastodon would be better in my opinion or Attrition for the removalaspect
Extractor Demon would be fin if you had more cards to reanimate creatures of The opponent but the mill alone isn't Wörth it mostly
Vulturous Zombie ...meh
Hope some of these suggestions help with The deck.

Henryu Personally, I don't like it. It's too expensive to justify its effects. Most of the time, I see it being either a bad Hex or a bad Rise of the Dark Realms . The only thing it has going for it is its versatility, and for such an expensive spell that's pretty bad at <4 mana, its not even that versatile.
If you feel like you need more late-game finishers, I'd run Exsanguinate , Rise of the Dark Realms , or Debt to the Deathless . If more mass removal, Damnation , Austere Command , or maybe something like Attrition .
EDIT: The card in question: Finale of Eternity

Ooh! I LOVE the idea of this deck!
I'm also curious — How consistently do you get the three counters on Ascension? You only have Blood Artist and Priest of Forgotten Gods to ensure the necessary life loss, and Blood Artist by himself doesn't provide a sac outlet to ensure creature deaths. In fact, the Priest is the only sac outlet in the deck. A couple sac outlets you could consider are Viscera Seer and Mind Slash . (I also love Attrition , but it's not Modern-legal.)
If you tend to play multiplayer, you could also consider Zulaport Cutthroat .

So VietMoneys, I got your boy Hazezon out tonight with an Attrition and Strands of Night in play and was able to get him to set up three triggers a turn for a couple turns in a row as insurance against board wipes. Even brought him back in on my next turn with the delayed trigger on the stack during my upkeep to set up the next turn before immediately sacing him again. Paul absolutely rekt the Harkonnen scum :)

Attrition Free sac outlets are better.
Buried Alive Significantly reduced need for creature tutors.
Chainer, Dementia Master Liliana is more focused towards the discard aspect I want.
Curse of Disturbance With fewer creatures comes less value out of this cycle of curses
Entomb Less need for creature tutors.
Fellwar Stone Lower curve means that I want to be using mana more efficiently, as opposed to tapping out on 2 to ramp.
Gray Merchant of Asphodel less overall devotion with the reduced creature count
Lightning Greaves Fewer creatures to protect in this version
Scythe Specter Too slow for this type of effect, the idea is to get rid of all opponent's hands as fast as possible and to keep them empty.
Stitcher's Supplier Less graveyard focus now, I dont need the self mill as much.
Victimize There just aren't enough good targets for this spell to be useful.
Liliana Vess More Discard, yay, also, more tutors.
Animate Dead the replacement for victimize, grabs one very important creature.
Razaketh, the Foulblooded More tutors!
Sensei's Divining Top Card selection is great.
Phyrexian Arena More consistent card draw.
Vampiric Tutor And even more tutors.

You may need more reliable sac outlets, I would recommend Stronghold Assassin or Attrition if you want to lean towards control. Viscera Seer and Goblin Bombardment are generally good in any situation.
Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest is perfect when you have hordes of tokens.

Vraska, Golgari Queen is a pretty decent sac outlet and she can become a win condition.
I also don't think the mana curve really requires 40 lands, you could definitely take out a few if you have more cards you want to swap in.

Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip is something I experimented with, but in the end all I could ever really do was activate her +, which is pretty weak in this deck. But my meta is pretty hard on planeswalkers. Maybe yours is more lenient, idk.
Lord of Extinction is sorta just weak here. I mean it combos great with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , but how often are you going to christmas-dreamland into both of those two? And Nighthowler is kinda just a worse Lord of Extinction .
I have played Sheoldred, Whispering One before and, like all of the praetors, all she does is get you targeted to death- especially if you can recur her.
Deadbridge Chant 's randomness makes it pretty bad. You're aiming to have like 10 or 15 cards in your grave by the time you play this, it makes that number 25. 1 in 25 is not very good. Like the card is a decent value engine, but it's not likely to get you what you're looking for.
Suggestions for Adds:
Acidic Slime : flexible removal
Farhaven Elf : better ramp
Thragtusk : a BIG pillow to lie back against- five life and two blockers!
Treasure Keeper : good value
Veteran Explorer : never hurts to have the table on your side
Vindictive Lich : hits each opponent where it hurts
Wall of Blossoms : big-butt creature and a draw
Wurmcoil Engine : just insane
Hell's Caretaker : good recursion
Attrition : repeatable removal
Perilous Forays : repeatable ramp
Quagmire Druid : repeatable enchantment removal
Sadistic Hypnotist : repeatable hand hate
Thoughtpicker Witch : f.ck somebody's draws
Viscera Seer : free, instant-speed sac outlet, provides some card advantage
Vraska, Golgari Queen : + is great, - is great, and ult is insane
Deathreap Ritual : lots of draw
Shadows of the Past : so. many. scries.
Zulaport Cutthroat : pings opponents to death, gains life
Attrition occurrence in decks from the last year
