Mana Vault on T1 lets you cast Sidisi on T2.
Mox Jet - obvious but you most likely won't get one cheap.
...can't think of any more accelerations right now, hope you find some usefull!

In Commander, there are in fact more than two black thrulls. There's Armor Thrull (one of my favorites), Necrite & Mindstab Thrull, Blood Pet, Basal Thrull & Blood Vassal, Exhumer Thrull, Thrull Champion, Thrull Parasite, Thrull Surgeon & Thrull Wizard... and that's pretty much all the good ones in mono-black.
I love thrulls, btw. =)

So you play your eggs (cheap artifacts that draw cards when you sacrifice them), then use lands like Archaeological Dig, Ghost Quarter and Crystal Vein, artifacts like Ashnod's Altar, and creatures like Basal Sliver, Blood Pet, and Blood Vassal to generate mana, then pass the mana through your eggs to get white mana and draw cards. Cast Second Sunrise to bring everything back. Then, use Codex Shredder to bring back the Sunrise. Respect and profit. Now, it's more difficult to pull off without Krark-Clan Ironworks, but it's doable. It may not be consistent enough for you, but if you like it, it's a pretty neat combo, IMO.

Ah missed that one actually lol =D . If you are using mostly 1v1 that does minimize the need for non creature permanent hate. One combo i run i my deck that you may want to consider and is effectively a turn 4-6 win is Nim Deathmantle + Solemn Simulacrum + Ashnod's Altar + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed or you can use Matter Reshaper instead of sad robot.
First get every basic land out of you deck and into play (tapped if using sad robot) then draw infinite cards or if your using Matter Reshaper put any to all permanents CMC 3 or less into play untapped and draw the rest of the deck.
Sifter of Skulls is really solid too can't fault you there i constantly debate using it in mine.

The big thing I realised with Meren decks is you don't have to get alot of experience counters. Even with zero counters she can be useful, and you should find once you're set up around the 8-10th turn that you should have enough experience counters to get any creature from your graveyard (unless Meren has been getting alot of hate in the game).

Yeah, color identity rules really kill the opportunities to use the unfortunate toad. My Balthor deck makes use of Basal Sliver and Blood Vassal though. Also Overeager Apprentice is surprisingly good in a deck that likes to discard.

I have a Duel Commander and a Casual Commander Sidisi, Undead Vizier list in my profile.
Infinite mana combos are a key part of both lists. I try to fill in the gaps(weaknesses) with artifacts.
- Nim Deathmantle(this card is an all-star) + Priest of Gix/Cathodion + Ashnod's Altar
- Rings of Brighthearth + Basalt Monolith
In your list, I would recommend more spot removal and sweepers.
- Go for the Throat
- Doom Blade
- Geth's Verdict
- Hero's Downfall
- Black Sun's Zenith
- Barter in Blood
Also, ramp. You need way more ramp. I prefer creature based ramp in duel commnader.
