Didn't see the infinity damage combo, that's pretty cool :)

A friend of mine used to play a Nantuko Husk + Zulaport Cutthroat + Eldrazi token deck, but i like yours way better

If you're still looking for budget options, I still strongly recommend Evolutionary Leap as one of your sac outlets. Other cheap creatures that are sac outlets are Nantuko Husk and Phyrexian Ghoul . Also, consider Spawning Pit . I also like to run creatures I can sacrifice and have great re-usage, like Blood Pet and Blood Vassal . These options can easily keep your budget down and the functionality of the deck up.

I include several of these in my own build, and I am always pleased with how it runs.

Beautiful mana curve, the mana base may need a little tweak so it matches the cost wheel, but this is very minor. Some suggestions to look at: Ashnod's Altar Terminate Blasphemous Act Black Market Nantuko Husk Diabolic Tutor Westvale Abbey  Flip Victimize

It looks like your trying to go budget with this list as well as low cmc, and +1/+1 counters. Meren of Clan Nel Toth wants creatures to get those experience counters. As well as sac outlets. id recommend increasing creatures and cutting from mostly instants and some enchantments possibly sorcerys too. Also not entirely sure why your running Black Knight . On that note.

Yahenni, Undying Partisan

Carrion Feeder

Nantuko Husk

all low drop creature sac outlet to make those xp counters while meren is out yahenni can get particularly mean as he gets big from board wipes that he can survive.

Skullclamp card draw.

Ashnod's Altar sac outlet and mana.

Sakura-Tribe Elder is great ramp as if meren see it die she gets a xp counter and if she has 2 she just puts it on the battlefield at end step to ramp even more.

Wood Elves is also a good card to res to ramp ahead. It can even tutor Overgrown Tomb if you have one (they are going for about 7 bucks as of this comment don't know your budget.)

Corpsejack Menace explosive with +1/+1.

Fleshbag Marauder make em sac get a counter.

Plaguecrafter make em sac premium.

Merciless Executioner make em sac more.

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest benefit from them sacing.

Savra, Queen of the Golgari benifit from sacing only if you can sac reliably though. i still feel she is worth mentioning.

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord a sac outlet that gets big and can win you the game.

Pir, Imaginative Rascal get more counters.

Managorger Hydra get alot of counters.

Gyre Sage get ramp with +1/+1.

Poison-Tip Archer make em pay with life for all the death.

Skullwinder good for politics.

Pollenbright Druid uber cheap proliferate or +1/+1.

Ravenous Slime make other graveyard deck hate you as your creature get huge.

Reyhan, Last of the Abzan a less potent but cheaper Death's Presence .

Scute Mob adorable and terrifing if left on the field to long.

Tendershoot Dryad if you like tokens.

Vigor he makes everything bigger.

Vulturous Zombie bird that gets big.

Winding Constrictor more counters

Golgari Grave-Troll dredge +1/+1 counter a golgari staple cheaper since the reprint

Skullbriar, the Walking Grave +1/+1 staple

you also might want creatures to bomb into with meren.

Avenger of Zendikar high cmc yes but if hes in the grave with enough xp free plants that get bigger or die for xp.

Hornet Queen same as avenger but deathtouch and flying they dont get bigger but dont really need to.

Underrealm Lich is a great way to filter through your top deck and load your graveyard. combos with the oh so pricey but oh so worth it Sylvan Library the way the replacement effect works with these two out has you drawing three cards keeping one putting two into the yard 3 times for 3 more cards in hand an 6 more in your graveyard for meren to see at endstep. (sorry if unnecessary i love that combo.)

i may have gone a little overboard (and could go on) but i think looking through the creatures i mentioned might be able to give the deck a shot in the arm probably aim for 30-35 creatures as thats what meren wants to abuse. thats just the creatures though and you still might want to look into increasing your ramp and card draw.

i hope this helps.

Oh ok I am a long time aristocrats player in a variety of formats and I usually prefer cards Nantuko Husk , but I was just curious what your thoughts process was.

Comory on I die, you die, we all die, bye bye!

so i have a green black and white black life gain token janky decks im finishing. but my main sac outlet is Nantuko Husk i find it by far the best sac option also combos well with Essence Harvest and Dying Wish as nantuko husk can sac itself to itself so you can 1 shot pretty easy with it. also for fun you can run Murder Investigation for more tokens!

hope this help have fun.
