Creature — Fungus
Devour 2 (As this enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. This creature enters the battlefield with twice that many +1/+1 counters on it.)
At the beginning of your upkeep, create a 1/1 green Saproling creature token for each +1/+1 counter on Mycoloth.

About the best removal package I've found is your sac creatures. You can recur Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, and Slum Reaper to keep most people board states clean. Those trying to go wide you already have covered with Massacre Wurm. To be honest, I found the token package a little win-more, I ended up dropping Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Mycoloth, and many more. I don't use the Scions either. I do use Altar of Dementia as it is a free sac outlet, and allows me to mill myself or use it as an alternate win con later with either Nighthowler or Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. You may also consider Greater Good as it allows you to draw and pitch what you don't need or specifically want in the graveyard. Another thing I highly recommend that you don't see very often is Void Winnower it turns off on average half of people's decks, and a lot of times more, my meta in particular is full of powerhouse 3 drops. Hornet Queen actually seems great here though, how is it running for you? I have a nest laying around, but I've never considered picking up the Queen.
Unfortunately piloting Meren is a dangerous game as people are familiar with her as an absolute powerhouse. Haha. A decent Meren deck will destroy many other GOOD decks. The key is to know your group and constantly update your list to fair well in your meta. My meta doesn't run much graveyard hate as I play the only graveyard deck, so I'm not familiar with working around it. Perhaps run a few shuffle effects that allow you to place your graveyard back in your library as opposed to being exiled? You'd have to re-mill everything, but at least you wouldn't lose it.

You don't actually need a sac outlet for the Mike&Trike combo, you just need to have the trike ping itself once so that it dies.
Since most of the counter-based cards in this deck don't really need to sit around for very long to get value, I imagine getting Reyhan exiled isn't too big of a deal.
In terms of some suggestions:
- Scavenging Ooze is probably better than Predator Ooze.
- Pir, Imaginative Rascal might be fun for your theme.
- Crop Rotation to find Urborg seems pretty important for Crypt Ghast to do anything given how few swamps the deck is running.
- You seem a little light on early ramp. Some number of Golgari Signet, Primal Growth, Kodama's Reach or Cultivate might not be amiss. I also like Yavimaya Elder
- When playing out of your graveyard, Hermit Druid is pretty much broken.
- Grave Titan is arguably even better than Wurmcoil in Meren.
Some possible cuts:
- I think Gyre Sage is worse than a ramp spell. In general, if you can afford the setup it needs to be good, you probably don't need the mana.
- I've run and cut Dark Imposter a lot of times. At 9 mana to do anything, it's almost always worse than Ravenous Chupacabra.
- Endrek Sahr is probably worth keeping an eye on. He gets worse the more board wipes your meta has.
- Also probably worth watching Bloodspore Thrinax and Mycoloth. Thrinax seems really solid here. Mycoloth is another "high upside, but puts such a huge target on you that it backfires a lot" sort of card.
Good luck. Looks like a fun list.

First off, I really like your deck so far and it seems like you put a lot of time in it, so good job :)
But still i have a few recommendations:
I would probably cut Awakening Zone aswell as From Beyond for Putrefy and Beast Within, because the synergy with enchantments in your deck is limited and interaction is something your opponents should be afraid of. These cards can shut down many combos aswell as swings for letal.
If you want to get a step further i think cutting the really expensive cards like razaketh, the foulblooded , Woodfall Primus, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Avenger of Zendikar and Grave Titan would be a good first step on lowering your curve.
Meren is more of a midrange deck wich wins by having more value than you opponent while keeping them at bay. And two or three big finishers like Craterhoof Behemoth, the Protean Hulk combo aswell as Kokusho, the Evening Star and Gray Merchant of Asphodel should be enough.
Hope this helped and if you have any questions or just want to tell me why you may think otherwise, feel free to message me :) <3

My opinion would be to pick what you want your commander to do and run with it. At the moment, you have a fair amount of "splashy' big things that are cool, but don't help the sacrifice theme, some zombie theme things, and expensive things to have sacrifice effects.
My recommendations would be to cut anything that is above 6 mana that isn't helping the sacrifice plan like Sandwurm Convergence and such.
After that, your commander says ANY PLAYER and ANY PERMANANT. Because of that, things like Carrion Feeder, Ashnod's Altar, even things like Evolving Wilds puts counters on your little dudes. So you could Ghost Quarter for a combat trick, sac one token to build an army, etc.
You should run all the 1 mana dorks so you can power out your commander/bigger threats faster without having to run slow ramp like Gift of Paradise and Worn Powerstone. Also, Sol Ring, Skullclamp, and at least Golgari Signet should be in the deck. Examples of dorks would be Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Boreal Druid, Arbor Elf, Elves of Deep Shadow.
In terms of "Payoff" cards, you could run Mycoloth and Tendershoot Dryad for token making, The Gitrog Monster makes card draw into creature power, Grim Haruspex draws lots of cards, Killing Wave is a kinda board wipe (or good life loss spell) that sacrifices instead of killing, Death Cloud or Smallpox can change a board state massively.

Dropped Mycoloth for Kokusho, the Evening Star. I didn't need the additional sac outlet and without some of the other token cards I've removed, Mycoloth was substantially less effective. Though at one time he was a BOMB. Once dropped 57 57/57's thanks to him...oh the good old out of the box days. Haha. Much more consistent now though.

Supply // Demand needs spaces to read properly for some reason.
Triumph of the Hordes is a game ending card for this style of deck, although commander popularity has pushed the price up a lot.
Some of my favourite MTG memories are of a Pollenbright Wings on a Mycoloth. Both cards aren't great in modern, as they're too easily disrupted (barring a Leyline of Anticipation deck), but are a lot of fun in more casual lists. I've tinkered some, but you're pretty close to how this deck wants to run.
Sideboard wise, Alive // Well is worth a look. Cheap, helps hate out burn as well as, (if not better than,) a leyline in token decks. Solemnity hates infect while stopping both Ratchet Bomb and Engineered Explosives from hitting anything bigger than your tokens. Wilt-Leaf Liege is amazing in hollow-one metas.
Fungal Plots is a big saproling tribal card. You might not be making tokens often with it, but the lifegain/carddraw is very strong when you're using saprolings as chump blockers and trying to dig into your sideboard cards.
Utopia mycorn feels like it could be part of some kind of haste/combo list, but I've never seen it work well. Wayfaring Temple is basically either a 1/1 or a 3 mana duress as your opponent kills it.
Hope this helps- good luck and happy piloting.

Forced Adaptation would look good with this, as well as Gyre Sage and Kalonian Hydra. There's room for bigger glory with Doubling Season or the like. If you're willing to splash black there's Corpsejack Menace. Other than that Renegade Krasis is a nice touch. There's a few others but they're not as memorable, Mycoloth among them
