Slum Reaper Dictate of Erebos Deathpact Nim Deathmantle main deck the Butcher of Malakir. Mikaeus enables combos, nim death mantle is a combo piece with Ashnod's Altar and Mikeaus turns it on if you are using any 1 single creature to tribute and reanimate (looking at you Kokusho). Something like Wurmcoil Engine or Abhorrent Overlord or Avenger of Zendikar that makes tokens will make Ashnod's/Nim live without Mikeaus. The other 3 cards I mentioned as well as the main deck Butcher will enable better board control. To me, Meren is not just about reanimation, it is about producing the most value that you can. Swing by my profile if you want to see my personal Meren list. It includes several combos that I have left out of this comment.

Blue_Flame with Bogles poised to be a strong list right now, I'll definitely take Slum Reaper into consideration. It's just so hard figuring out what to cut...

Blue_Flame on Graveyard Maverick - My Tortex Brew

Really cool stuff! I've always had a soft spot for Tortured Existence in my heart - I'm actually building the deck in paper right now! One card that I've had success with testing online is the newly pauper-legal Slum Reaper - though it's 4 mana, the card is absolutely nuts against strategies like Bogles and Mono-White Heroic that just want to beat you down with one creature.

Dark Impostor is another removal spell on a stick that exiles the creature it targeted as well as gains its activated abilites, all for low CMC and low $. Same goes for Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief but she powers herself up for a quicker kill. Guul Draz Assassin and Big Game Hunter also fit into this category.

For single target kill spells: Sever the Bloodline is a bit overcosted for most targets but is a pretty good token killer, Price of Fame is cheap enough if targeting opposing commanders and lets you dig through your library looking for answers. Tragic Slip is low CMC and can be a way around indestructible.

For mass removal, Mutilate and Black Sun's Zenith are inexpensive options. Nevinyrral's Disk can wipe the board of both artifacts and enchantments which black flat out has no real way to directly deal with.

But one of black's specialties is getting opponents to sac their owns permanents, especially creatures: Gatekeeper of Malakir , Chainer's Edict , Geth's Verdict , Plaguecrafter , Slum Reaper , Fleshbag Marauder , Diabolic Edict

For some additional artifact ramp: Charcoal Diamond , Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , Hedron Archive Unstable Obelisk with the Obelisk doubling as 'hit anything' removal and the Stone and Archive being some card draw as well.

...which leads into more card draw: Phyrexian Arena for steady card draw, Necrologia for that rush of cards.

For mono black Cabal Stronghold is a cheap option to gain extra mana late game.

I didn't price check everything listed above but nothing there should be too outrageously priced.

I'm not fully convinced by the Grim Monolith here, it's better in decks that need a huge burst of mana early, then low-cost afterwards. I don't think this deck fits that description, personally.

No Fleshbag Marauder or Merciless Executioner, but you're running Slum Reaper?

You're missing Oona's Blackguard here, which is BACKBREAKING for opponents.

Could run Unspeakable Symbol if you really want to protect your stuff.

I'd run Blasphemous Act over Damnation, though you should probably run both.

I'd want Wheel of Fortune over Windfall, though again I might try both.

Slave of Bolas and Grave Betrayal are awesome ways to get your hands on your opponents' stuff.

You need to run WAY more creatures to make full use of Marchesa's ability, IMO. My Marchesa deck (from early in my EDH career, don't judge me: *RETIRED* Roses Aren't Red: Marchesa EDH) had over 30, though it was a bit of a different take on her (much more focused on her ability and much more budget). I'd check out that link, it may give you some other ideas :)

I'm looking forward to using Miming Slime, Reckless Wurm, Foil and Moan of the Unhallowed (not many Pauper cards that can make 2/2 Zombies!). Do you think any of these downshifted cards will improve your decks? or inspire new ones?
