Custodi Lich Discussion

Monarch seems like a great mechanic in this type of deck. Perhaps Custodi Lich?

Last_Laugh I don't think Sage of Fables is very usable, I have some wizards but I don't think I have enough to make a big effect, I only have seven. Metallic Mimic could be good though, I think I'll wait for Kaladesh to rotate before I buy though, they're too big in metas right now.
Haste could be good but I don't think I really want to use it THAT much. I might include Anger because I have it in my Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, so I could move it into this deck, not sure about Urabrask the Hidden. Too much hate will happen.

First I recommend taking out: Havengul Runebinder, Cemetery Recruitment, Undead Alchemist, Nantuko Husk, Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher, Ashes of the Fallen, Perpetual Timepiece, Secrets of the Dead, Ancient Excavation, Murder, Compelling Deterrence, Liliana's Mastery, Obelisk of Urd, Graf Harvest, and Zombie Infestation, Ghoulcaller's Chant,
Cards that you should put in: Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Grave Pact, Unholy Grotto, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Living Death, Cryptbreaker, Death Baron, Phyrexian Reclamation, High Market, Corpse Harvester, Balthor the Defiled, Reassembling Skeleton, Skullclamp, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Zombie Apocalypse, Crypt of Agadeem, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Reliquary Tower, Bojuka Bog, Diabolic Intent, Patriarch's Bidding, and Demonic Tutor.
If you are really trying to stay Timmy with the deck, then I won't recommend Phyrexian Altar because it goes infinite with Gravecrawler and any kind of death/ETB trigger, but then again, it does it with Rooftop Storm and a sac outlet too.
Other cards that can be really good in zombies include: Sheoldred, Whispering One, Corpse Connoisseur, Zombie Trailblazer, Twilight's Call, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Demonic Collusion, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Scourge of Nel Toth, River Kelpie, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Burnished Hart, Disciple of Bolas, Harvester of Souls, Damnation, Rune-Scarred Demon, Phenax, God of Deception, Beacon of Unrest, Corpse Augur, Palace Siege, Infernal Caretaker, Contamination, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead, Dread Wanderer, Boneknitter, Grimoire of the Dead, Pontiff of Blight, Custodi Lich

Gravespawn Sovereign seems cool, I don't know if you want to go that route though. Also, Noxious Ghoul is a great card, if you're creating large quantities of zombies. Either one of these cards seems better than Custodi Lich.

Thank you pjeseb and Reverie42 great suggestions. So as for the things that could work in other decks but I don't feel the theme of mine goes towards is taking stuff back into my hand. I almost always have something to play due to draw cards. Also big creatures that benefit from graveyards don't really have a place because I never finish people with big creatures. I took out Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord due to this fact and the fact that it costs to sacrifice a creature. Viscera Seer will be staying cause it is such a simple and free sac outlet that does something pretty good for a one drop. I have thought about taking out Stronghold Assassin and Custodi Lich though which I could replace with Eternal Witness and Fauna Shaman those are great!!! And as for It That Betrays the only other big creatures I will be adding is Protean Hulk. Minister of Pain I could take out. But Virulent Plague has saved me multiple times so that is a keeper. Fume Spitter can take out small commanders easy but is also an option to replace with Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip thanks for the suggestions! And upvotes are always appreciated!

A few options that you might consider, in mostly decreasing order of how good I think they're likely to be:
- Eternal Witness is a great card in Meren. Fetches whatever you need and you're always happy to sac it.
- Evolutionary Leap lets you sacrifice without inate card disadvantage
- Smothering Abomination fills a similar role to Evo Leap, but on a pretty good flying body.
- Hermit Druid may be better than Silverglade Pathfinder since it can fill your graveyard. It doesn't ramp, but it has a very low opportunity cost.
- Thragtusk gives value going in and out, and the extra token to chump/sac is pretty nice.
- Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip flips easily and can help empty your opponents' hands
- It That Betrays is super expensive and maybe kind of impractical, but it can also just win on its own. Also steals fetchlands, which is nice.
You could likely make room by removing some ETB sac effects or sac effects that don't provide card advantage (Viscera Seer, Stronghold Assassin, Slum Reaper, etc). Winding Constrictor is likely cuttable (I have to imagine you get enough XP to do what you need without it). Custodi Lich is probably just less efficient than other stuff at 5 mana.
This is definitely the most all-in Meren deck I've seen in terms of creature count, though. Pretty cool list, thanks for posting.
