Behold the Beyond Discussion

PookandPie your suggestions are highly appreciated. I'm not sure how, but I forgot that Cabal Coffers and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx existed even though I use them in other commander decks. Expedition Map flew completely under my radar and I'm really grateful that you suggested it. I would run Sanguine Bond, but I played against someone who managed to pull the 2 enchantment combo off, and it wasn't necessarily that fun. So even though it is a win condition I'll leave it out of my deck. Diabolic Revelation is another card that I didn't know existed until you mentioned it, but sadly I was already replacing Behold the Beyond with Demonic Tutor due to the fact that it never saw play even if I drew it, because it cost too much mana and the discard effect is also pretty nasty when you have a good hand.

Behold the Beyond. Its way too much mana for tutoring what? you dont have a 3 card (or less) win con you want to be dropping on separate turns. Lord of Extinction is only really good with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord which you dont have in the deck. i love Lurking Predators but you dont have enough big "this will win the game like, now" creatures to benefit from it. Thats more of a mayael card. Not sure your map is worth keeping, with the speed you can run through the deck. not a big fan of Increasing Ambition just due to targetted graveyard hate. I would much rather you get a creature back like sakura tribe-elder or e-wit than a flashback tutor. Thats all i really see for now, i would have to playtest the deck to find what else might be worth cutting. I have my own meren deck as well, Meren does the stuffs if you want to look at a little more control-built deck

I think One with Nature, Whirler Rogue, Awakening Zone, Behold the Beyond, Shamanic Revelation, Bow of Nylea and Bident of Thassa would all fit your deck very well.
Sundering Vitae is similar to Naturalize, but looks a lot better in the context of your deck.
I am not sure if Downsize, Reclaim, Primal Growth and the 1/1 fliers with no other abilities are quite good enough. Also, in your low curve 2 color deck, Chromatic Lantern seems unnecessary, Simic Signet is probably better if you need the ramp at all. Dissipate is expensive at 3 mana, i would play Unified Will or Arcane Denial instead.
You might want a couple of ways to answer an opponent's creature in case it becomes too threatening. Consider Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, Reality Shift, Lignify, Control Magic or Ulvenwald Tracker.

You're welcome! I bought this deck for my wife and she loves it. You may also think about adding dredge creatures just to fill your graveyard a bit more. Examples are Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Grave-Troll, Golgari Thug. I use them plus The Gitrog Monster and Lotleth Troll to form an unassuming combo in which you dredge, hit a land, discard the dredger and dredge again. As long as you hit a land every time you dredge (which isn't hard), you can mill yourself as much as you want, then cast Living Death to get everyone on the battlefield. It's kind of jankey, but she's assembled it several times to great effect.

I adjusted the tutors in the deck to better synergize with it, namely attaching bodies to the tutors or lowering their costs. I am hoping to get more value out of them with Lifeline, Volrath's Stronghold and Doomed Necromancer.

Suggestions for your mana base:
Bad Moon, Eternal Thirst, and Lashwrithe are fine cards but your creatures are already so huge, I don't think you need them. I would just add more ramp instead: Ashnod's Altar (also serves as a sacrifice outlet), Caged Sun, and Expedition Map (to find Cabal Coffers).
Suggestions for draw and card advantage:
It seems like a great win condition is the interaction between your Commander and Maralen of the Mornsong so I recommend more tutor and dark spells to get the combo out. Maybe switch out: Cremate, Sanguine Bond, Unholy Hunger, Abyssal Persecutor, Visions of Brutality, and Vile Requiem for Night's Whisper, Dark Petition, Behold the Beyond, Ambition's Cost, Beseech the Queen and Viscera Seer.
Suggestions for removal spells:
Several of your removal spells cost alot of mana. To the Slaughter, Reach of Shadows, In Garruk's Wake, Dregs of Sorrow, and Annihilate could be replaced with Diabolic Edict, Hero's Downfall, Killing Wave, Malicious Affliction, and Grave Pact.
