Crystal Vein and Cephalid Coliseum are both excellent lands here.

There's also a few staples like Pernicious Deed that probably deserve a spot here.

I'm also of the opinion that Song of the Dryads and Imprisoned in the Moon are 2 of your best pieces of spot removal here due to versatility and the ability to reuse it via Muldrotha.

so here is my meren deck of almost 5 years. it isnt budget anymore however there are some budget cards in there for ya to consider and it can help ya figure out how ya want to build the deck or maybe a way for you not to want to build the deck.

So some basic tips is you want a lot of sac outlets, you want stuff that have good etb abilities or stuff that want to die, then any flavor for wins. For cuts i think a lot of your artifact creatures doesn't add much for your deck. There are a lot better cards that can help you with control.

Mana: Devoted Druid (2 dollar card) Can get you mana and exp counters

Graveyard: Having multiple ways to interact with graveyard is important because people will try to get rid of meren cause she is a gravy engine. A lot of the good ones are a bit expensive like Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip and Sheoldred, Whispering One so if you don't want to do expensive upgrades it is understandable.

Tutor: Fierce Empath has a solid etb trigger to get creatures for you. Woodland Bellower is another solid etb trigger to get creatures for you and interacts with fierce empath. Pattern of Rebirth is nice tutor because your creatures should be easy to kill and now you can get your best creature on the field right away.

Removal: Plaguecrafter , Merciless Executioner , and Fleshbag Marauder are solid creatures that can get rid of your opponents creatures and with meren you can bring them back to cause constant removal. I personally like using two of the three in my deck.

Sac outlets: Sadistic Hypnotist is a nice sac outlet that gets rid of people hands for you. Evolutionary Leap is a nice sac outlet to help you draw cards.

I want to die: Mindslicer is a nice creature that you want to die and can cause everybody problems. Skullclamp is a useful artifact that lets you kill off your creatures to help you draw a lot.

Boardwipes: Boardwipes are solid cause you benefit the most from them. Pox , Living Death , Pernicious Deed are all really wonderful ones that I use. If i have to push one I recommend Pernicious deed because that card scares a lot of people from doing stuff, and at worst you can always blow it up for 0 to get rid of tokens or 1 to get rid of a lot of mana rocks.

Last_Laugh on Muldrotha, Grave Cast

Crystal Vein , Cephalid Coliseum , and Command Beacon are all great lands here.

Imprisoned in the Moon and Song of the Dryads are 2 of your best pieces of spot removal here.

Pernicious Deed deserves a spot here also.

Hey friend! Just a few things of note: - You don't need 40 lands. I'd drop it down to 37 or even 36. - 40 creatures is WAY too many. I'd take out some of the higher converted mana cost ones. - What Muldrotha wants to do is cast one type of permanent from your grave each turn. So you should have more artifacts, enchantments, and plainswalkers. - Maybe consider some self-mill? This gives you some ammunition for Muldrotha once she hits the field.

My Muldrotha deck (before I dismantled due to power level) had some nice self-mill, reanimation, and cards that had solid ETB triggers or sacrifice abilities (i.e. Archaeomancer , Spore Frog , and Pernicious Deed ). this way you get the most bang for your buck.

Love to see meren deck. Meren was my first commander deck, very fun high value deck. If you want some fun ideas check out my deck list.

So if you want your deck to be more competitive you will probably want to add more tutors. Diabolic Intent , Eldritch Evolution , Natural Order , and Pattern of Rebirth are high power tutors that have a lot of synergy with Meren because they are there own sac outlets. Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor are naturally high power tutors but they are expensive. so if you are building with a budget you might want to hold off on these cards.

This leads to sac outlets. Sac outlets have a lot of synergy for meren. So I recommend running a lot of decent ones like Altar of Dementia so you can mill yourself, Carrion Feeder to get a t1 sac outlet and beater, and Evolutionary Leap to be a sac outlet/draw. Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar are really good sac outlets but they cost a bit of money.

Boardwipes can be nice but you dont need to many. Pernicious Deed and Toxic Deluge is solid cause they are 3 mana boardwipes and it has a lot of control, ya can pick what dies.

Plaguecrafter is a solid removal spell that you can keep getting back.

Also adding a lot of mana dorks and draw cards can be very nice to make your deck more powerful.

For cuts, its whatever you think doesnt work to well. from my experience spore frog, phyrexian plaguelord, and priest of the forgotten gods dont really work that well. you usally want to tutor, draw, or play better cards.

I hope this helps out and dont forgot to check out my decklist and other meren decklist to help ya out.

Looking to fit Reanimate into the deck. Have Twilight Prophet , Overgrown Tomb , Praetor's Grasp , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Grim Haruspex , Riftsweeper , Pernicious Deed , and Westvale Abbey  Flip on the way. With the group I play with we don't do combo or a lot of land destruction so I have tried to tune it as best I can without those elements.

Muldrotha really isn't a spellslinger deck. She wants permanents to recycle from the graveyard and right now you have almost nothing to recur without waiting for your opponents to kill it first, just Pernicious Deed , a couple of fetches and a relatively small number of planeswalkers. Honestly, this list looks like it goes better in Tasigur or maybe Atraxa.

For each permanent type you'll want a few targets to recycle for value and you can find replacements for some of your instants and sorceries with permanents that produce a similar effect. For example, cut Farseek and sub in Wayfarer's Bauble and/or Expedition Map and pull Chemister's Insight for Witching Well . Seal of Primordium for a disenchant each turn, etc.

I've kept Muldrotha in the 99 of my Tasigur deck that is less instant/sorcery heavy than this deck and I've come close to pulling her out as too often she's been a vanilla 6/6 for 6. Without building a lot more around her strengths, I think you'll be very disappointed in how the deck performs.
