A few more sac outlets and amplifiers (like, say, Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Viscera Seer or Spawning Pit and a Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos) + counters-and-tokens-matter cards (like Doubling Season and Parallel Lives and Hardened Scales and Winding Constrictor + a Cauldron of Souls, Blood Artist, and Zulaport Cutthroat might be fun to test here.

I run a similar list at Mazirek Counters. Please stop by if you'd ever like to compare notes.

Have fun brewing!

Skullclamp for card draw, and Spawning Pit is another good sacrifice outlet.

if you want a haste effect like fervor i'd recommend Anger since it's easy to get to access in a deck like this and harder to remove unless you know your meta has grave hate, everyone automatically runs any enchantment or artifact removal since they expect it.

I'd recommend looking into Parallel Evolution, and Second Harvest. parallel evolution has the downside of working for everyone's tokens but hopeully with a impact tremors or purphoros out your gf shouldn't care. Also, agreeing with what the other guy said, more mana rocks. And for ramp in general Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are staples in any deck with green. Also, you have zulaport cutthroat but no Blood Artist. Consistency is rare in a singleton format so i would take it when you can get it.

one last card recommend, since with a lot of mana and doubling season out it's insane. look into Spawning Pit, and if you wanna produce a lot of mana, Ashnod's Altar will get you tons of mana quick.

okay, i've written a lot so far, so sorry for that! Aside from cutting a few lands i'd also say cutting cruel reality might be a good cut, it doesn't do much for your deck as it is and at the point where you'd wanna cast it you'd probably rather be casting something else. There's so many other cards i can think of but this post is getting long as is, best of luck!

Doubling Season, Panharmonicon, Parallel Lives, and Spawning Pit might help with tokens, as might Fresh Meat and Second Harvest.

It might also be fun to test with Mitotic Slime, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Rune-Scarred Demon, and Sheoldred, Whispering One as value creatures.

Cauldron of Souls can help with recursion after sac, too. Phyrexian Reclamation can help with recursion if Meren isn't on the field.

Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, and the Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond combo might also be helpful.

Have fun playing!

I love it - I just built a Meren deck to test from pieces of my Mazirek deck.

Some cards that might be helpful:

Happy playing!

I love this commander.

I might suggest more creatures in the mainboard - some mill-themed (e.g. Manic Scribe, some value (e.g. Grave Titan; some big (e.g. Sheoldred, Whispering One, some small (e.g. Jace's Phantasm). Maybe +/- 30 total?

I'm a big fan of Altar of the Brood in The Locust God decks. How might you generate a bunch of tokens in UB or colorless to trigger multiple mill effects each turn? A protected Liliana, the Last Hope, that ultimates might be good. Chasm Skulker is a good squid battery if you can protect it until it has a ton of counters. Abhorrent Overlord might help if your devotion to B is up there. Nuisance Engine and Spawning Pit are okay. Myr Battlesphere comes to mind, too. And maybe a Carrion to use on a giant Consuming Aberration.

Altar can be a pretty narrow win con, but it's easy to recast if you can bring it back to hand.

Have fun playing!

chadsansing I had Fecundity and Spawning Pit in the initial build, but cut them because I have had a huge issue with consistency so most of the time they just sit on the field doing nothing. It either explodes or I'm stuck there doing nothing.

I'm thinking of trying to convert this into a Treefolk/Saproling Tribal token deck after seeing the new Saproling Lord from Rivals of Ixalan. If/When I do Mana Echoes will definitely go in. Do you know how it interacts with a token flood? will I get 1 mana or as much mana as the monsters I played? I added all the X costing token producers I could find in Naya, but that is only 3.

I think my thoughts about Utvara Hellkite were that I don't have a lot of dragons in here so It would be kind of slow unless I played Descent of the Dragons recently, but thank you for reminding me about it because I totally forgot it was an option. I thought of Deflecting Palm too for the same reasons you have, but stuck with Arachnogenesis which is a surprising MVP. I wonder if Defelcting Palm is used on a Blightsteel Colossus does the owner take infect damage?

Part of me thinks i just need to get better with playing around other decks and learning when the best time to flood the board is. I don't know yet, the deck is still fairly young even though I've edited it 3 times already

Thank you so much for the help
