Maybe Dying Wish and/or Murder Investigation? Also, Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Slum Reaper, and Barter in Blood help up your commander's power considerably. Also, Rite of Consumption, Essence Harvest, and Curse of the Cabal might be fun.

This seems like a super fun deck to play, honestly. But I can definitely see where some of the creatures are too expensive. You might want to trade some of the big-impact 7/8 mana creatures like Terastodon, Woodfall Primus, Bloodshot Cyclops and Bloodfire Colossus for less-impactful but more immediately-available cards. Like the trifecta of sac-removal creatures: Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner and Slum Reaper.(Highly approve of Flesh / Blood, incidentally. Include it if you can, it's won me multiple games.)

I'd add Fleshbag Marauder and Slum Reaper as redundances of Merciless Executioner because the effect works great with your commander.

I'm sure you know these two, still, worths the mention: Cabal Coffers and maybe Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to turn your nonbasics into swamps. Could prove interesting with Filth on your graveyard.

You can get more advantage of your commander's ability if you do the sacrifice: Typical sac outlets like Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Altar of Dementia, Carrion Feeder, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Sadistic Hypnotist, Viscera Seer and also, sac fodder: Bloodghast, Bloodsoaked Champion, Nether Traitor, Reassembling Skeleton.

Also, what do you think about Horobi, Death's Wail?

I strongly agree with PartyJ on the land count and even go further, because WB can be slow on ramp, you need mana rocks:

On the ramp side, there are a few things that can get you lands, but some can be expensive:

Also, any deck running black should include Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers and maybe, Expedition Map to find them.

Besides all the above in my opinion this deck needs a direction on what you want to do with it, namely answering the questions What does this deck do? and How does it wins by doing that?

I also sort of agree with shaftdiggity's suggestion. Since your commander has a low CMC, and also is not very easy to deal with, you can rely on him staying on the battlefield and using his ability to get your creatures back from your graveyard. So, one way to go is by searching for creatures with relatively low CMC and/or good Enter the Battlefield effects, combined with Sacrifice Outlets.

These are some ETB examples:

These need to be used with an available Sac Outlet:

The way to play these cards goes like this: As they enter the battlefield, their first ability triggers and you get to exile somethin. Then, in response (or when the ability is on the stack but hasn't resolved yet you sacrifice the creature. Hence, the second ability will go to the stack, but since the first one hasn't resolved yet, there is nothing to return from exile. The first ability will then resolve, exiling something permanently.

Some good Sac Outlets exmples:

Forcing your opponents to sacrifice with you is very good:

I didn't realize, but Vigor is absolutely fantastic for Kresh. Neat!

One question: How often do you need Innocent Blood to be a 1-mana kill spell? Something like Slum Reaper might work better (basically a third Fleshbag).

On the other hand Meren gets out of hand extremely quickly because there's no way to interact with the experience counters. Expect that someone's going to realize like I did that the weakest link of the Meren deck is Meren and will just remove her every time. If you want to keep Meren casual my recommendation is that you avoid playing anything with a Slum Reaper type effect.

All that said though I am biased because I've played against Meren a lot and have had long discussions with my friend about his decks where the best thing I can do is make sure he never keeps his commander. You don't have to go that competitive.
