When Phyrexian Devourer's power is 7 or greater, sacrifice it.
Exile the top card of your library: Put X +1/+1 counters on Phyrexian Devourer, where X is the exiled card's converted mana cost.

Such an interesting deck concept lol. Magus of the coffees goes infinite with Sword of the Paruns also you can get another combo by adding Phyrexian Devourer with Necrotic Ooze + Triskelion + Phyrexian Devourer :)

I'm really happy about the Scribnibblers combo, though.

So i see you have sheoldred and Jarad, but some cards that really make those nuts are Phyrexian Devourer (jarad can wipe a table with this) and Triskelion + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . Fauna Shaman can put the right cards in your hand and the grave. Necrotic Ooze is insane in grave decks, and another card that can cause gravyard decks to win on the spot is Buried Alive . All that should take a little pressure of the genesis win con and provide more win con outlets, but i also play a competetive meren so i understand im a little biased towards the reanimation side of things. Life from the loam is one of my favorite golgari cards (i know its mono green, but we all know where it goes lol) so congrats on this badass looking page btw well done! Im a little jelous lol. Good luck!

Hey, good looking deck, ive been enjoying tuning up meren as well, feel free to take this with a grain of salt but here are a couple things i notice that i would suggest changing
-first i notice a strong discard theme, which i can understand the temtation to just get to dip cards into the grave, unfortunatly with some of these you might be unintentionally giving your opponent card advantage with cards like Dark Deal . I prefer Fauna Shaman to get cards from hand to grave yard, cause then you can find the other half of a combo, for ex. Fauna Shaman >discard Phyrexian Devourer search for Triskelion discard Triskelion search for Necrotic Ooze play it, win on the spot, or if there is a counter just bring him back at the end of turn and do it again. Another great option is Buried Alive when i play meren against another graveyard deck it is pretty much a race to get this because many times it can cause a graveyard deck to win on the spot. Also Phyrexian Reclamation and Tortured Existence can have some awsome graveyard interactions depending on your need -next is recurgence you have some great card effects that cant really be recurged like you can with creatures so cards like Nihil Spellbomb while a good effect maybe something like Agent of Erebos could give you much more value, in a deck like this seeking out creatures to do the job of spells can be very powerfull. Another card that does a lot of work for me is Life from the Loam getting lands and filling your grave yard is great ive played it turn two with no target to value drege on t3. -lastley im glad your running Necropotence many overlook this card for some crazy reason, but i would recomend running Reliquary Tower or Thought Vessel to get some crazy value out of it, my personal favorite is Venser's Journal but some ppl think its to costy, i understand that. -Well if you read all that thanks for listening to my rant, i enjoy playing meren a lot and have tested her in a pretty competetive environment extensivly, so i have lots of opinions on her lol. Some last thoughts would be to drop: Bloodghast , Priest of Forgotten Gods , Shriekmaw and add somthing like : Viscera Seer , Phyrexian Delver , and Fauna Shaman . Any questions or anything just let me know, i like talking about meren, good luck buddy

Hey thanks for coming here! :) - as i usually play at 2 different LGS's the power level in my play group changes quite a lot, however, i want this to be a deck that is able to combo out and compete at a bit higher level, if that is possible at a "budget". That being said i have not played or played against Meren yet so my knowledge is kind of limited as to how he plays, but i want it to operate around sacrificing, graveyard and then some fast win cons such as Phyrexian Devourer Triskelion and Necrotic Ooze . It would be nice if there is different ways to win though, so you are not doing the same combo each game and its the only way to play it if you get me :)
I was also wondering how stuff like Korozda Guildmage could play out in this deck as you could use it to sacrifice a creature and then get a bunch of tokens to sac for experience counters to then bring back the thing you sacced in the first place? however, i dont see him in any decks or on EDHREC, is there any particular reason for that?
btw, the cards i left in maybe is close to all the cards i had in the colors that had the slightest chance of going in the deck, so i will filter them a bit soon so it is more relevant cards! :D
Please let me know if that did not really answer your question, and thanks for taking the time to help me out :)

I agree with most of what Carlmoores says, being a Mairsil main myself since the guyt was printed. However bear in mind that Mirror-Mad Phantasm ability looks for a card named "Mirror-Mad Phastasm" and not "This card" the "a card named" makes the whole difference. And also I personally hate Laboratory Maniac also I dislike Phyrexian Devourer because, yeah sure in a causal meta you can win, but at the expense of ending up with no library, and not just a random mill to the graveyard that can be fixed with an eldrazi, but EXILED, also remember this cards will not have a cage counter so you are just putting all your eggs in one basket with no plan B.
Also you guys are both forgeting about one of the most broken creatures in this deck Cinderhaze Wretch
