It looks like you're going for infinite mana combos, with Nest of Scarabs to create a bunch of 1/1s to win the game.

Thanks! Makes sense, and powerful combo indeed. Not too much of a fan of ballista + mikaeus, but the combo is clever.
Fauna Shaman and/or Birthing Pod sound like great additions because of the tutor abilities. I’ll try and get someone to trade them, they’re a lot of fun and can gain me access more easily to silver bullets like Spore Frog, Deranged Hermit, Caustic Caterpillar and Shriekmaw.

Hey, looks good.
Have you considered the FlashHulk combo (Protean Hulk and Flash) with Phyrexian Delver and Phantasmal Image? Buried Alive is a good enabler to get creatures into the graveyard for Muldrotha or reanimation. Hermit Druid and Life from the Loam are ways to get many types of permanents into your graveyard. Skullclamp is very good as a draw engine with all the 1 toughness creatures as well as sac outlets. Fauna Shaman is a less expensive/less powerful Survival of the Fittest they can fill your graveyard up with creatures while also tutoring for specific ones. Birthing Pod is similar, all are powerful with Muldrotha.
River Kelpie has busted interactions with Muldrotha and sac outlets. Razaketh, the Foulblooded(sac outlet, tutor) very good Demon to reanimate. Mindslicer with a sac outlet can be back-backing for your opponents, less bad for you.
Good luck with your deck.

This one has a pretty sweet unlimited graveyard recursion with Fauna Shaman out and Kozilek or Ulamog in your hand. Simply tap Shaman, discard Ulamog, shuffle graveyard into library, search for Ulamog.

Thanks zingzang, The birds of paradise, Elvish Mystic and Elves of Deep Shadow are there because not only are they really cheap they provide fodder so you can bring them back early on to sac them to gain experience counters, so you can grab massive things. But yeah- I see the argument for both your Yavimaya's but the rest require mana and this deck is more about ramping fast early and then gaining experience to be able to always out value your opponent because your creatures are never dying. The deck is also trying it's best to be budget but also viable, that's why there was no cards from your comment in the 6-drop part included- I wanted to but they were to high in price. I will be including Sepulchral Primordial and Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip- Birthing Pod is too high but I also wanted him. The deck doesn't need more card draw though Necropotence can be added if you want to. I will also be adding Altar of Dementia and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. Writing this I then saw Fauna Shaman I will most definitely be adding that. With the budget Mikaeus, the Unhallowed was worth it to me.

I'm happy to see, that you like the best commander of all time, Meren ;-). Really like the addition of Apprentice Necromancer - gotta include him in my deck as well.
But there are some cards, that have no synergy with your commander and could easily be replaced. Creature ramp like Birds of Paradise, Elvish Mystic or Elves of Deep Shadow don't really do anything for your experience counters.
But with creatures like Yavimaya Granger, Burnished Hart, Dawntreader Elk or Yavimaya Elder you get ramp AND experience counters - this way you can loop your ramp creatures every round with Meren.
Your curve has a little breakdown at 6 - Mikaeus is your only 6-drop :(. Here are some creatures that work as a 6-drop in Meren: Kokusho, the Evening Star, Grave Titan, Bane of Progress, Massacre Wurm, Wurmcoil Engine.
Some other important signature cards for Meren include: Birthing Pod, Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Sepulchral Primordial, Ashnod's Altar, Necropotence, Fauna Shaman, Vindictive Lich, Grave Pact and Altar of Dementia
