Black Sun's Zenith Discussion

Yeah, in EDH, you can only have cards that correspond with your commander's color identity. It's okay, my buddy used to put Guttural Response in his Kaalia deck but took it out because it had a green mana symbol in the card.
Black Sun's Zenith is pretty budget I think, it's insane in Hapatra. Grafted Exoskeleton is also really good but it might draw hate to that creature or artifact since infect scares people very quickly.
Some other cool cards that is most likely budget:
Just some thoughts to get you started. Good Luck!

So personally, I love Meren and all that she does. Because of that, I have a good amount of cards that I really enjoy that you may also like..
Vampire Hexmage is a free sacrifice that can kill walkers and make some permanents bad - but its totally a meta call.
Spore Frog AKA fog frog should be in every Meren deck because of how BEAUTIFUL he is in negating combat.
Night's Whisper I think is better than ambition's cost. It's half the mana for one less card. Usually, you want 4+ mana things to be doing big stuff and taking the turn off to draw 3 is medium sometimes. If you are looking for that kind of effect, Harmonize does the same thing in a different color.
Carrion Feeder can be seer #2
Triumph of the Hordes is a personal favorite of mine, but if you dislike infecting people, I understand.
Birthing Pod I think should be in all the Merens, but that also depends on budget and how your people react to that sort of thing.
Pattern of Rebirth can be a tutor for combo-y things if you ever go that way or you can just get a big dumb thing by trading in a little guy.
Kokusho, the Evening Star is my favorite card in MtG and he has a home in all my Meren builds. CoCo Puffs the dragon is a house!
Sorry for the wall of words.. I just enjoy naming cards I enjoy in decks I also enjoy! Make your choices around what you want your deck to remain and make your friends fear the swamp lady!

Hi- There are a few cards that deserve honourable mentions from my testing. I've got this big list of cards I've tested and made work, but a lot of it is pure jank. Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox The ones below deserve specific mention.
Plunge into Darkness. It pseudo tutors, its a sac outlet, it hates on burn. Its ability to look for a sideboard card is both understated and very strong.
Imp's Mischief is a meta call, but in some metas is devastating. Used to be run a lot to redirect splinter twin, will likely see play when something similar reapears.
Blade of the Bloodchief is a big payoff card for mono-black vampire tribal, as sitting lower to the ground and spamming creatures/removal makes lashwrithe and this a lot stronger.
Dark Prophecy is worth mentioning in that it is unplayable. You have to say it or people will try. Unless its a key combo peice in a Zulaport Cutthroat list, don't bother. Jam a Phyrexian Arena or heck, Underworld Connections instead.
Defense Grid, Storage Matrix and Culling Scales deserve mention as artifacts. They aren't in favour at the moment, but have in the past been devastating tools. Sun Droplet is often a better Dragon's Claw, or in a degenerate meta, copies 5-8.
Soul Spike is a powerful wincon when you can draw your library, which is tricky in mono black, but very possible with Grim Haruspex lists. The lifegain can also offset lifeloss a lot of repeatable 'draw your library' cards often incur.
Gonti's Machinations is a 1 mana lightning helix with suspend which bypasses leyline.

CommanderAdventures and Coward_Token: I've been considering Cauldron of Souls for a while now - it's a good way to recur my board after a board wipe, and end up with an army of snakes afterwards. The only issue I am worried about with it is that I often place -1 counters on my own stuff (between Black Sun's Zenith, Harbinger of Night, etc) so I'm worried about it being a dead card in many draws...what would you cut from it?
(PS: CommanderAdventures - I'm a huge fan of your EDH variant format, and I am currently trying to convince my group to try it. Can I promote it in an EDH facebook group I admin?)

As for Crumbling Ashes I didn't think the deck needed it as it's already quite heavy on removal with the likes of the death touch tokens and Skinrender applying 3 -1/-1 counters. Plus it only activates on your upkeep so there's the possibility a big TRON creature would still get a good hit, in which case Doom Blade could just deal with the threat instantly.
