With nobody able to help w/ this deck (Even though the fighting game series of the same name is so great), I really wanted to know what I can do to make this deck great, while faithful to the original source. Here's what I want from this:
- Creatures representing the characters of the verse.
- Lands representing the many areas of the verse
- Reasons why X (X = Card in Question.) is faithful to the original source; & also good.
- Why you think X is a good fit, even if it means sacrificing art for good effects
- Other things that are part of UNIB lore representing the other things (I'll get to it.)
- Even amounts of all 5 mana colors
- Having others help w/ some degree of knowledge of UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH.
I hope this helps, as I already have several things noted:
Merkava = Fathom Feeder (Voids consume w/o reason, & this Eldrazi has Ingest; & Deathtouch, which fits the bill the most about Merkava; a Void whose transformation is incomplete. That, & says Despair more than other color identities.
Ash Barrens = Abandoned Building (朽ち荒れた廃墟) (Welp, something happened to both things, so it fits.)
Mana Confluence or Cascading Cataracts = Abyss (The center of the Hollow Night; filled with Infinite EXS. Both of these are considered like the power of an Abyss; but only one can truly be forcefully Destroyed.)
Hinterland Harbor = Riverside Esplanade (川沿いの遊歩道) (Well, both have some body of Water in the Background, & are both Harbors.)
Isolated Chapel = Cathedral of Far East (極東の大聖堂) (Both have quite some religious quality to them.)
Prismatic Geoscope = The Ruby of Nothingness (虚無なる紅玉) (Both Rocks contain energy of its most powerful; although I dun think Geoscope would fit this...)
And... That's it. If anyone can help me w/ just the cards alone, that would be great as I'm using terminology for all this (I'll finish this later; let's see what we can find for now...). Thanks again for helping in advance... :)

Hey there! Sen Triplets used to be one of my favorite decks to play, for a 2HG tournament here might be some cards that can be of use. I would definitely recommend Paradox Haze for one of them as you would then be able to take control of both players hands. Cascading Cataracts is also a good untility land that can be used to filter all your colorless mana to use your opponents spells. Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study can help you get some mass card draw so you can support your buddy. Memnarch although quite high on the cmc cost can also allow you to help protect your buddy from threatening stuff. Hostage Taker is also quite great as well as Notion Thief to prevent your opponents from doing stuff. Spell Queller also has some hidden strategy as you can flash it in to stop your opponent kill it on your turn and the card will be able to cast for free for you.
Since you are also in the protection route, running all the cheap interaction spells are optimal. Delay, Swan Song, Remand, Render Silent, Silence, Mission Briefing, Spell Pierce, Mana Leak, Snap are all great cards that can be abused with Sen.
You can also run a Academy Ruins + Mindslaver to lock out one person. As Foretold can also go pretty crazy if you use it in conjunction with Paradox Haze. You can also copy it with Copy Enchantment, Estrid's Invocation, or Clever Impersonator to tic up the counters a lot to start free casting a lot of things.
Lastly for Sen mana is important, you have plenty of the decent ones, so here might be some others you can consider. Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress, Fellwar Stone, Thought Vessel, Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Worn Powerstone, Coldsteel Heart.
I hope that gives some insight and helps!

Revitalize is...not a good card, especially for EDH. It just doesn't have a big enough impact to merit a card slot. Likewise for Root Snare - fog effects aren't worthwhile unless you take advantage of them in some way which this deck does not.
Beneath the Sands could be replaced with Cultivate -two lands for the same cmc. I'd look into more ramp as well, you probably want to aim for around 10 sources and I think I count 6-7 right now.
You ABSOLUTELY need some more removal. A Day of Judgment or Rout would be great. Even a Martial Coup to rebuild your tokens. Disenchant or Naturalize for enchantments and artifacts, Beast Within for other pesky things.
You don't currently have much in the way of +1/+1 counter synergies as far as I could see so you might want to find some more sources of the counters. Hungry Lynx is a good option.
Cards I'd remove:
- Beneath the Sands
- Root Snare
- Inspired Charge
- Luxa River Shrine
- Filigree Familiar
- Longtusk Cub - no way to make more energy
- Oreskos Swiftclaw - there's better cats
- Riparian Tiger - energy dependent

I have not seen the deck either but I saw someone use Mana Reflection and Cascading Cataracts to make . Those cards are so good together. So are all the filter lands. Like Wooded Bastion it taps for or or but with Mana Reflection it taps for or or . Just a really good few cards I recommend. Also any other land that produces 2 or more mana is good with the reflection. Scorched Ruins taps for but with the reflection its but I wouldn't recommend Scorched Ruins or Lotus Vale.
there a elf that does the Chromatic Lantern effect to I forget its name.

You'd probably appreciate City of Brass and Mana Confluence - with 40 life, their drawbacks are virtually nil, making them essentially Command Towers #2 and 3. Likewise, Path of Ancestry is superior to any of the taplands, even if you never use its scrying ability, and Cascading Cataracts is a better Crystal Quarry - although in that case I'd try to run both!

I actually run a fairly similar deck to this. It is Fury of the 9? Suns.
Grozoth is just insane value. Just take a good look at the 9 drops you're already running. They're all super powerful and there is a lot of them. It even gets Blasphemous Act, which is a nice board clear to have fast access to in a pinch.
