Eater of Hope Discussion

Hey there, I have some suggestions first would be Plaguecrafter you already have two similar effects but the control over the board is always welcome,because it is hard to outgrind Meren when she does her thing.
As Greg said try, to get your hands on as many 1 drop manadorks as you can,so you can speed up your engine because you will draw hate as Meren fast and if you are heavily disrupted in the early stages of the game it can get tricky to get a foothold on The board later on (sidenote Exploration and Burgeoning may also help).
I also enjoy Birthing Pod in my Meren deck as a reapeatable tutor/saccoutlet it can help to get the creatures you need in some situations.
Also maybe add 1-2 additional artifact/enchantment removal spells in case something like Torpor Orb hits the field which would screw you up otherwise.
Last as mentioned try to get your hands on a Viscera Seer free saccoutlets are very powerful in your deck and the cheaper they are the better they become, Phyrexian Tower would also be a major upgrade to your manabase.
Suggestions to cut: Winding Constrictor yes you have a +1counter subtheme but the creatures are either removed if they get too big or not online at all which makes this card more or less a vanillacreature
Wall of Blossoms :it's often used as a filler to thin your deck a little but you would profit more from a simple manadork
Eater of Hope to expensive for a a evasive beater and you could have better saccoutlets if you want a scary creature for The top of your curve Terastodon would be better in my opinion or Attrition for the removalaspect
Extractor Demon would be fin if you had more cards to reanimate creatures of The opponent but the mill alone isn't Wörth it mostly
Vulturous Zombie ...meh
Hope some of these suggestions help with The deck.

I like the changes! Looks like a solid deck. The last thing I would do to tune it is look at the bottom end of the curve. Gibbering Fiend and Pilfering Imp are cute, but now that you've removed your token producers, you'll have a tough time feeding Demonlord of Ashmouth , Eater of Hope , Xathrid Demon , Shadowborn Demon , and Infernal Offering . You've still got some cards that care about going wide, like Torrent of Souls , Hellrider , and Skirsdag High Priest .
The rate on Hordeling Outburst is good. For a reanimator deck, Skirk Ridge Exhumer , Cryptbreaker , Call the Bloodline , and Silversmith are also good. At the top end of the curve, Abhorrent Overlord could also warrant consideration. Also, in the land slot, if you feel your manabase is good, I like Kher Keep . Speaking of the manabase, Urborg Volcano and Tresserhorn Sinks are better in your deck than Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse . Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace is a good utility land for reanimator. Also, Pyramid of the Pantheon and Molten Slagheap are real bad. Myriad Landscape is miles better.
My favorite low-curve option for pumping out bodies is Hanweir Garrison . Hanweir Battlements would be a sweet addition, as well, and I think it's better in this deck than Hammer of Purphoros . You don't really want to be taxing your lands with a deck full of 5+ drops, and I could say the same for Underworld Connections . It looks like a budget Phyrexian Arena , but it's really not. You're pretty good on card draw at this point, but if you really feel the need for another source, Night's Whisper is a clean, solid option.

@griffstick: Went back to Lazav, the Multifarious... I'm currently trying to find ways for stuff like Leveler, Eater of Hope, & others in there. But I have to ask; is their downside part of the effects? & after switching names but keeping effects, how long does this last? Is it Indefinite, or after the end of turn? This was never addressed in the Rulings for this card...
I'll see if I can find anything I could use as a base from here.
@ShaharRyu & ZendikariWol: I'll start w/ the former. Since I've returned to this Lazav for good, what else would you suggest for this? I'll be list looking from there. For the Latter, I Apologize for switching Etrata, but this is far superior anyway; I just am finding some stuff that might somehow fit; though I wonder if Banshee of the Dread Choir would insta-kill a whole field when using Vector Asp, Blighted Agent, & Phyrexian Dreadnought?
That said, I'm now inspiration-searching from here...

mfogle you'll definitely like my most recent revisions.
I've replace Archdemon of Unx and Eater of Hope and Carnifex Demon for Kuro, Pitlord. Acrhdemon is to slow, eater needs to many resources to be efficient and carnifex has the problem of hitting my commander and has limited kill potential and use.
Lastly I think I'll swap Reprocess for Liliana's Contract when I am able to, reprocess can net you more cards but you have to have the available creatures to sac, versus contract will net you four cards no matter what, plus the additional win con makes it an excellent card for this build.
Let me know what kind of build you go with when its finished, I'd recommend all of the above mentioned.

Golgari Grave-Troll + Life from the Loam + Stinkweed Imp all great means for self milling with dredge. Liliana, Death's Majesty, Living Death, Command Beacon would be really good additions. You have almost no means to sacrifice you own creatures to recur their effects, which is a key component to golgari/sultai. Whisper, Blood Liturgist + Diabolic Intent + Scourge of Nel Toth + Razaketh, the Foulblooded + Eater of Hope are great means for using the etb effect creatures to be able to re-use them again from grave. Replace Taigam, Sidisi's Hand with Sultai Ascendancy because it's pointless to skip your draw step, you never want to exile cards form your graveyard, and it's cheaper. Pelakka Wurm, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Rune-Scarred Demon, Journey to Eternity Flip, Pattern of Rebirth, The Mending of Dominaria, Birthing Pod, Mimic Vat, Nim Deathmantle, Sword of Feast and Famine, Boseiju, Who Shelters All, Demonic Tutor; all should be considered.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel, and more removal/wrath effects. I don't like Abyssal Persecutor, or Bad Moon in this deck. Demon of Dark Schemes for token/mana dork wrath, Demonlord Belzenlok to get to your apostles,Eater of Hope turns late game apostles into removal. I also really don't like Dark Ritual either. In your description that's a little magical Christmas land.

Illusionist's Bracers Only works with activated abilities. Activated abilities are always written this way "Cost: Effect."
Currently you have these creatures that could get some use of the Illusionist's Bracers, but Meren or Sheoldred won't:
Yavimaya Elder, Viscera Seer, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Hell's Caretaker, Eater of Hope, Caustic Caterpillar, Bontu the Glorified and Razaketh, the Foulblooded.
I'd say you have way too much sacrificing going on and too little stuff to sacrifice, few creatures and token producers. I'd also add more card draw.
