From some test plays, Greater Good + my infinite green mana loop can draw my deck very easily, only problem is running out of black mana, so I wanted to try address both the pain of death to self mill and a better option for right now to get black mana.
So addition of Kozilek can help me :
1) Gitrog Card Draw Combo when I acquire gitrog for deck,
2) allow me avoid self mill from greater good,
3) if I havent used Songs of the Damned yet, can help me acquire a large amount of black mana by rotating through my deck.
Olivia's Dragoon is an instant speed discard outlet which like Kozilek will help me with Gitrog Card Draw Combo.
Blood Bairn is a cheaper no cost sac outlet and pumps herself which can work nicely with Greater Good.
Final Parting + Diabolic Tutor more cheap tutors for deck, Final Parting is nice as it puts stuff into grave.
Nezumi Graverobber is added in more specifically to play graveyard hate as deadeye tracker is not multi use in 1 turn.
Removed Avenger of Zen as it was more a midrange card combo option with world shaker, but is too slow due to the summon sickness on the plants.
Removed Praetor's Counsel, as being able to discard to handsize is beneficial and a filled graveyard is far more valuable to Meren, was solely a "fun" card due to stupid hand size when played.
Removed Noxious Gearhulk as its cmc is too high for what you get in return.
Removed Shirei as it was far to much setup to get the value out of him, too slow to get value out of him and was never a card I tutored for.
Removed Plaguelord due to it being a rather high cmc sac outlet, may end up being put back in as it does help clear boards and kill indestructible creatures.

Don't know much about artifact sac outlets but as far as creature sac outlets go there's Viscera Seer, Carrion Feeder, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Blood Bairn, Nantuko Husk, Spawning Pit, Bloodthrone Vampire, Vampiric Rites, Disciple of Griselbrand, Altar's Reap, and Bone Splinters, Hell's Caretaker, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Phyrexian Plaguelord, and Whisper, Blood Liturgist off the top of my head. There's also Phyrexian Altar but it's not cheap. You can probably find more of these effects as well as artifact sac effects on gatherer.

Hi! What is the purpose of Fatal Push? Just to kill weenie creatures? I don't see fetch lands here or any other permanent to sacrifice. jgc10 is right: you should add Indulgent Aristocrat. I would also recommend to look at Bloodthrone Vampire, Blood Bairn, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or any other Vampire card that utilizes sacrifice mechanic. All these cards should cooperate well with Blood Artist and/or Kalastria Highborn. Hope you'll find the solution. Good luck!

Black/Green (as you can guess from the username) is kinda my jam, and reanimator is one of the things it does best. Your Meren actually wants similar things to my Alesha deck...a creature has to die for it to come back and be reused, and creatures that have great effects that you can reuse are going to be the best.
Look for good Enter the Battlefield (ETB) and Leave the Battlefield (LTB) effects at a variety of mana costs to trigger Meren's experience tokens. Look for mana ramp creatures that put lands into play instead of tap for mana such as Sakura-Tribe Elder, Farhaven Elf, Yavimaya Elder, Civic Wayfinder. What you want to ramp into are all the fun different things you can do and then recur. Thragtusk, Woodland Bellower, Greenwarden of Murasa, Agent of Erebos, Priest of the Blood Rite, Ravenous Chupacabra, Fleshbag Marauder
Also look for fun creatures that care when other creatures you control die, since you want that to happen.
Most importantly, sacrifice outlets to a.) stop your creatures from being exiled b.) get that experience as fast as possible and c.) keep reusing those ETB/LTB abilities. Look for cards like Nantuko Husk, Disciple of Bolas, Blood Bairn, Viscera Seer, Ashnod's Altar
One more note... Elixir of Immortality is your friend. Many players know how dangerous a well-stocked graveyard is, and getting yours exiled can knock the wind from your sails. It's 100% better for it to get shuffled into your library that be gone for good!

first of all I like the low mana curve of your deck. This is how Edgar Markov should be played!
Skullclamp was already mentioned. It is the most important inclusion in your deck, I think. It's your draw engine in combination with the tokens.
You could consider Blood Bairn, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Bloodthrone Vampire, Vampire Aristocrat and Viscera Seer. The first four give you an advantage in combat and the Viscera Seer gives you card selection which is desperately needed in mardu. All are good with Skullclamp. Take out Skymarch Bloodletter, Bloodmad Vampire, Inspiring Cleric, Olivia's Dragoon, Ravenous Bloodseeker or Sanguinary Mage. Or take out Gifted Aetherborn and Tithe Drinker because they're difficult to cast on turn 2 consistently.
Carnival of Souls could be a great tool for an aggro deck in a 1vs1 format. I think it will really spice things up in your deck!
you should invest some money in your mana base, so that you're able to cast your spells consistently on turn 1,2 and 3. For example fetches, shocks, Dragonskull Summit, Isolated Chapel, Clifftop Retreat and Unclaimed Territory.

I had Gisa for a bit and looking at your deck you're land heavy and short on ramp. Making your land drops is great but when you're stuck at only that you'll be left in the dust by other decks most times. Charcoal Diamond, Wild-Field Scarecrow, Solemn Simulacrum, Pilgrim's Eye, Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, etc. are options to get you ahead or get lands out of your deck so your draws are action.
Magewright's Stone is another source of untapping to consider.
In my deck I employed Blood Bairn, Bloodthrone Vampire and Nantuko Husk to eat zombies and sack it for a ton more. Then reanimate again for more. Necromancy, Dance of the Dead, Animate Dead are always useful in black decks imo.
Hope something helps!
