Mesmeric Orb Discussion

2 cards i strongly recommend also for this deck Mesmeric Orb is huge not only does it feed your grave yard but it really messes with everyone else's game huge disruptor, the other is Nyx Weaver another one thats good for feeding your library and getting a card from your graveyard and then with meren you just keep getting that back.

This deck looks very cool and well crafted. Since you are looking for cards to cut, i personally dislike Risen Executioner, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, Contingency Plan and Dimir Keyrune. Mesmeric Orb seems powerful, but also risky since it can actually threaten to mill you all the way (i can't see a way in your list to get rid of it).
As for further improvements, Phyrexian Delver, Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed are some great zombies. Black Market can be another powerful mana source, and a couple of delve cards like Murderous Cut or Dig Through Time could easily work here. Finally, i think it's important to be able to defend against game winning spells like Time Stretch, Tooth and Nail, Insurrection, Cyclonic Rift, Omniscience etc. A couple of counterspells like Swan Song, Stubborn Denial or Arcane Denial could provide a nice safety net to prevent those "Oops the game just ended" moments.

A Mesmeric Orb is a mill powerhouse. Fun build, +1.

i built a meren deck it is one of my favs. Gravedigger give it a plus one if ya don't mind. there are also a few cards that i love in meren that work well that i don't see to feed your graveyard like Mesmeric Orb for example really strong card give her a look.

How about Slagwurm Armor for massive toughness boost that sticks around.

Mesmeric Orb can be beastly in mill.

Muddle the Mixture is an OK tutor and an OK counter, but as a single card it's quite nice.

Off to a great start, +1.

Care to elaborate how this works? I see the Mesmeric Orb + Fatestitcher/Kiora's Follower to mill your entire deck, but what does Intruder Alarm do for you? Regardless, +1 for creating such evil.
