First of all, with this high CMC you need 24 lands.

While I understand you are trying to sacrifice your creatures for beneficial effects, the high converted mana cost of your deck makes it kind of hard to work with.

Here are some lower cost creatures that could be good:

Augur of SkullsBasal Sliver (mana accelerator to cast Ruthless Deathfang faster)Bile UrchinBlind ZealotBlood BairnBloodthrone VampireCarrier Thrall (mana accelerator, 2x creature)Corpse HaulerDeath CultistDemonic Taskmaster (need tokens spawn everyturn)Devouring SwarmWestvale Abbey  Flip This is a must have.Disciple of Griselbrand Save yourself.Doomed Necromancer Worth it.Eldrazi Skyspawner Mana acceleratorFont of ReturnFume SpitterGnawing ZombieGutless GhoulMerciless ExecutionerMortician Beetle -------> Cause why not.Nezumi Bone-Reader ControlPawn of Ulamog mana acceleratorQarsi SadistQuest for the GravelordThoughtpicker Witch controlThrull Surgeon controlVampiric RitesVoracious Null

Skirsdag High Priest Isn't this amazing?

  1. Traitorous Blood -> Act of Aggression: this may be a mistake due to the trample factor, but red tends to be an issue for this deck, and ray of command is better than threaten...
  2. Coat of Arms -> Shared Animosity
  3. Blood Bairn -> Yahenni, Undying Partisan
  4. Stromkirk Patrol -> Gifted Aetherborn

Ok, some changes made. Yavimaya Elder in for Crumbling Vestige (an early game Elder will provide excellent card draw and land fetch, thinning the deck by at least three cards per turn, if not more); Phyrexian Plaguelord in, Baloth Null out; Eternal Witness in for Restock (recursion makes it too good to pass up); Carnival of Souls in for Decaying Soil (the price for keeping Decaying Soil around is too steep, as I need the cards in my graveyard); Necropotence in for Blood Bairn (going to give it a try).

Always looking for some more comments!

D_Fenn on Super sac turn 3 sneaky win(budget $51/35tix)

octopimp turn 3 is a little less cosisten then i would like but have Nantuko Husk and Blood Bairn dose help and is still possible turn 3 win with them if you use Blisterpod as a chump block you get a mana out of it and can play either 3 drop turn two this combo is less cosisten and turn 4 kills are a lot more common. Thank you for the input

Nantuko Husk is strictly better than Blood Bairn in a non-vampire tribal deck, because you can sacrifice it to itself in case you want to trigger something, whereas the bair demands another creature.

Hey! Looks like an awesome deck, I love Waste Not decks!

I just have a couple pieces of advice for you:

Hope this works out for you! Enjoy the holidays!

REMOVE

-Blood Bairn -> +Viscera Seer (cheaper sac outlet) or at least Bloodthrone Vampire (strictly better)
-Satyr Wayfinder (even though Self-mill can be quite good for Meren, therer are better cards for this)
-Grisly Salvage (same thing. The only one I'd tell you to keep is Mulch because it might give you 2 lands)
-Viridian Zealot -> outclassed by +Caustic Caterpillar
-Kessig Cagebreakers (the tokens could be fun, but I don't think they are useful enough)
-Banshee of the Dread Choir (meh)
-Lotleth Troll (meh...)
-Bloodspore Thrinax (growing creatures are not all that good in a commander based on graveyard recursion)
-Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest (growing creatures are not all that good in a commander based on graveyard recursion)
-Vulturous Zombie (growing creatures are not all that good in a commander based on graveyard recursion)
-Champion of Stray Souls (I know you like it, but check out my suggestions first. I don't think they are useful enough)
-Doomgape (same thing. A 10/10 trampler is great, but if you manage to get some 5/5 flying demons, you'll be happier)

MANA BASE SUGGESTIONS

-Golgari Guildgate
-Vivid Grove
-Vivid Marsh
-Polluted Mire
-Slippery Karst
+Basic Forests and Swamps. There's no need for all this color-fixing and taplands in a deck with just two colors and one of them being green and with access to ramp cards.

GETTING YOUR ELDRAZI EXPERIENCE FARM AND RAMP

+Nest Invader (small ramp)
+Growth Spasm (ramp)
+From Beyond and/or Awakening Zone (consistent ramp and experience builder for Meren)
+Catacomb Sifter (scry, ramp, experience)

WIN CON

+Rootrunner lockdown when you are ahead
+Triumph of the Hordes for the infect win

TUTOR

+Jarad's Orders (2 in 1)
+Corpse Connoisseur (reusable Entomb)

RAMP (besides eldrazi)

+Solemn Simulacrum
+Farhaven Elf
+Kodama's Reach or Cultivate

DRAW ENGINES

+Smothering Abomination (the mandatory upkeep sacrifice won't be a problem most of the times... and you can sac itself if needed be)
+Bloodgift Demon (getting 1 extra card for 1 life and a big flying dude is pretty neat)
+Kothophed, Soul Hoarder (6/6 flying for ? The drawing clause is mandatory and it could be problematic against some decks, but if you remember to have a sac outlet ready, you can sacrifice him if you need to)
+Vampiric Rites (doubles as a sac outlet)

BACK FROM THE GRAVE

+Beacon of Unrest is a must have. Gets you a creature or artifact (birthing pod, probably) back.
+Ever After isn't bad either
+Grim Return (sacrifice something and cast that)

OTHER CARDS

+Xathrid Demon a second Jarad
+Demon of Dark Schemes is a cheaper Massacre Wurm and it allows you to get creatures from ANY graveyard for some energy.
+Aetherworks Marvel (speaking of energy, this one allows you to cast a card for free for 6 energy. And tokens generate energy as well)
+Riftsweeper is a safeguard card when you get most of your win-cons exiled.
+Deadbridge Chant can be downright amazing in a Meren deck. The initial self-mill won't be a problem 99% of the time.
+Avenger of Zendikar gives you a bunch of tokens.
+Overseer of the Damned (removal and token generator... besides being a 5/5 flying creature)
+Havoc Demon (mass removal -break in case of emergency-, 5/5 flying creature)

Cards that could come out for upgrades that i found are Sever the Bloodline, same name is not really relevant there is way better removal. Banshee of the Dread Choir, Blood Bairn, Caller of the Pack, Cloudthresher, Eater of Hope, Extractor Demon, Great Oak Guardian, Indrik Stomphowler, Altar's Reap, Thief of Blood and Ambition's Cost could all be better cards i think.
