Spawning Pool enters the battlefield tapped.
Tap: Add (Black) to your mana pool.
(1)(Black): Spawning Pool becomes a 1/1 black Skeleton creature with "(Black): Regenerate this creature" until end of turn. It's still a land. (If it regenerates, the next time it would be destroyed this turn, it isn't. Instead tap it, remove all damage from it, and remove it from combat.)

Mana flood is a real concern in monoblack, but the only good ways around all take up significant space in the deck. Dark Confidant and Phyrexian Arena do the job, but I'm not sure if this deck wants that or not. Might work but it'd be significantly different
I know the statistical advantage is small, but if you have black fetches you could always run some.

This is a cool deck! Lots of different ways for it to go off. When last played against a Meren deck, I lost to Innocent Blood and still haven't recovered. That and Smallpox might be worth considering. If I understand correctly, you'd like to produce a situation where you have a ton of creatures in your graveyard and a ton of experience counters, at which point you don't need more land than it takes to get your commander out. I'm not sure where you would go for MLD in these colors, but this a deck at least the recovers well from other players MLD-ing. In terms of targeted land destruction, I'm not sure the 1-fors that black offers are worth it because you're not looking to destroy their land on curve. Because this is a value deck, I think the best thing to do to make it competitive would be to add more acceleration. I don't know how much you're looking to drop or if this is for paper at all, but Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, and other rocks like that would be strong here. Ancient Tomb is obviously worth it if you want to buy it. Alternatively, Wood Elves and Farhaven Elf could be ramp options along-side some dorks like Somberwald Sage and Birds of Paradise. In might be to your advantage also to accerate your mana base a little more. You're only 2 colors and most of your restrictive costs are higher CMCs, so it probably isn't worth running Vivid Grove or Vivid Marsh in my opinion. The same might even be true for Evolving Wilds. Other misc ideas: Spawning Pool to pair with your Spawning Bed, Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Nevinyrral's Disk might be a bit of a stretch, and Read the Bones and its ilk to help recover from wipes. Finally, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed could be a really fun addition. It's good with your sac creatures like Caustic Caterpillar, and you could even throw in Triskelion for an infinite combo that you can put in your graveyard with Buried Alive

if you're going to use Earth Surge, i would recommend using Treetop Village, Spawning Pool, and/or Hissing Quagmire. other options could be Mutavault or Blinkmoth Nexus or Inkmoth Nexus, but i think the colored ones would prove to be more useful. especially the quagmire.

crawler3: ya, same with my group. I pulled the combo once and then scrapped it, just wasn't a fun win.
I'd say definitely add in man-lands as they'll avoid board wipes and you'll have the option to attack with them if the way is clear. Others Forbidding Watchtower, Spawning Pool. And then there's Blighted Fen and Kjeldoran Outpost for added fun.

Alwayz a +1 for deck that run Dash Hopes
Somes suggestions for ya, take what you want:
Deathmark against those color
Asylum Visitor for grindy game, to draw more
Quest for the Nihil Stone which may be a dead draw late game
- Also, if they sideboard out all their removal, maybe some Pack Rat can be fun

Very cool take on marchesa...have you thought of inclusion of manlands like Mutavault/Forbidding Watchtower/Ghitu Encampment/Lavaclaw Reaches/Spawning Pool to crew your vehicles in case you don't have a creature on the board? Token generator like Assemble the Legion/Bitterblossom/Elspeth, Sun's Champion are also great for more crew.
