An interesting list!
I would look at lowering/smoothing out your curve, I have found it helps improve the functionality of a deck.

TheChaosVault thanks for your suggestions! Although All Is Dust would technically be a "strictly better" sig for Ugin, I don't want to get targeted early in the game for having a massive boardwipe drawing attention to myself; Scour could be much more political. I'll consider it though, thank you.__

Consider Knight of the White Orchid replacing Map? You're playing both Foundry and Mistveil, lands that Orchid can search for and ramp. Also consider adding Aven Mindcensor in place of Burnished Hart or Gift of Estates ? I'm not a fan of Hart, it's too slow. In my opinion Orchid and Mindcensor are must haves for any heavy white deck.

My immediate thought with utilizing the Bros efficiently was to emphasize artifact creatures (ex. Goblin Replica ) and enchantment creatures (ex. Courser of Kruphix ) so you could always have options on what to sacrifice to answer a problem. You have the creature portion covered completely but I honestly cannot see you wanting to sacrifice any of your enchantments without also hurting yourself.
Most options to make expendable enchantment tokens are not great, like Pharika, God of Affliction , but some like Renowned Weaver could be viable because, again, it gives you options on what you want to sacrifice.
Bros' cost is also kind of expensive so ways to reduce it or generate more mana (you are in ) will allow multiple activations if need be. Heartstone and Thran Turbine come to mind to reduce their cost and Burnished Hart , Wild-Field Scarecrow , Solemn Simulacrum , Skittering Surveyor and Pilgrim's Eye are great early game to fix your mana while late-game you can sacrifice them to either ability.
You mentioned reanimation in the description so some more options are Animate Dead , Dance of the Dead , Phyrexian Delver , Oath of Ghouls , Palace Siege , Entreat the Dead , Feldon of the Third Path , Victimize , and Whisper, Blood Liturgist .
I would also consider other sacrifice options so in case you do not need to activate Bros you can still generate value via sacrificing your tokens or creatures. Altar's Reap and Costly Plunder for card advantage, Sidisi, Undead Vizier to tutor, Priest of Forgotten Gods for multi-value, etc.
You have the protective-footwear covered but I would consider adding Spider Umbra and Kaya's Ghostform so you can protect or sacrifice them if need be. Other personal favorites of mine are Undying Evil and Supernatural Stamina .
Looks nefariously "fun!"

Creatures like Farhaven Elf and Sakura-Tribe Elder are great, and I don't mean for them to come out. Others like them that would run well include Burnished Hart , Yavimaya Elder , and Yavimaya Granger . Anything that can sac itself with Meren on the board is a bonus. With the Granger, you just decline to pay the echo cost if it suits you.
I run an Aristocrats package in my Meren build, but you don't have to if you don't want to. But the sheer fact that creatures are going to die a lot over the course of the game does make cards like Zulaport Cutthroat , Blood Artist , and Poison-Tip Archer great for wearing opponents down.
I like Whisper, Blood Liturgist , and think she is pretty strong. I do believe you can sacrifice her to herself to satisfy the trigger, too. I think you are running enough tutors to get to your win conditions on a fairly consistent basis, but I find that playing a deck that is too consistent can tend to get you removed from the table fairly quickly. When I first build my Meren deck, I crammed it full of tutors. As I've gone forward, I've taken more of the tutors out, which takes away some of the consistency, but let's me put more fun things in to play, and provides a fresher game play experience for me. But that's just my experience. Your mileage may vary.

Before we get into this, I just want to say that if I sound like a know-it-all and a dick, it's toatally unintentional and I apologize for it. Also, I have never played Jeskai in EDH, so please take my suggestions with a grain of salt.
It's kind of hard to find a good Jeskai Commander that is based around creatures, so I think you have two options:
Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest , which will have to be more spell based, to trigger his abilities,
Of course, you could have both in your deck, and switch them around as the meta/playgroup changes, but it's best to choose one now. I'll provide options for both.
The ramp and land package wil be roughly the same, so I'll start with that. I use TCC's manabase template, but feel free to change it.
TCC's template for a manabase is this, but feel free to change it to fit your budget etc.
3 OG Duals (Can be replaced by Check, Scry or Man lands)
3 Zend-Onslought Fetch (Can be replaced by Panoramas)
15 total basics and utility (9/6 split)
3 Filter Lands
3 Pain Lands
4 Any Colour Lands
1 Tri Land
3 Other Lands(more utility, duals, Lairs, etc)
Here's a deck that I drafted if you want Shu Yun, Silent Tempest as your commander. I left three slots for the cards already in your deck
That ends my very long post. Feel free the change anything you want about the decks I made, as they are only a first draft.
