Reclamation Sage will ETB to destroy and trigger ezuri.
Viridian Corrupter will do the same and have infect.
Deadeye Navigator will let you repeat ETB effects.
Peregrine Drake will go infinite with deadeye navigator making mana and it triggers ezuri.
Sylvan Safekeeper will help protect your important creatures.
Heroic Intervention will help protect everything.
Sage of Hours combos with ezuri for infinite turns once you have 5 experience.
Tuskguard Captain will give all your buffed creatures trample and trigger ezuri.
Edric, Spymaster of Trest gets you cards and convinces opponents to hit other players.
Alchemist's Refuge let's you flash cards on other turns and it's a land.
Triumph of the Hordes would be a one shot kill card in the deck as it would give all your creatures infect and a buff.
Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is overrun on a creature.
I'd consider cutting: Arbor Collossus and Elder Druid

thanks thrustwhistle! great suggestions, i put Soulherder , Vesperlark , and Ephemerate in the deck. Eldrazi Displacer is a very good combo piece (and also a good blink card actually), the problem is that i don't have enought fonts of colorless mana; also i don't want to make my deck too much combo focused, but more of a control/value. Spike Weaver is a great card but doesn't quite make the cut, i used to play Stonehorn Dignitary which is similar, but there are too few people who play aggro in my playgroup to make it worth it.

theres a couple really good newer cards you might want to consider adding though.
Is there a reason you dont run Eldrazi Displacer ? comboing that with Peregrine Drake gives you infinite mana which has helped me win a lot with the deck. and the ability to instantly blink a creature for 3 is very powerful in the deck
Spike Weaver is another id consider adding. if hes out and you have mana open you have very solid protection from combat while you build a board. It also will combo with eldrazi displacer and peregrine drake to power up all of your creatures.

certain cards you may really like for the +1 +1 counter strategy: Spike Weaver it gives you the ability to repeat fogs over and over against people who like to swing. Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder give you the ability to go hecka tall hecka quick and make your dudes as big as you want em. Plaxcaster Frogling gives you the ability to protect your boys with counters on them for hecka cheap.
More two mana rocks would be better in your deck then some of the others you chose. look up the full set of talisman cards and throw in some more signets. they recently just completed the cycle of all 10 talisman and those are just nice and cheap ways to assure you get mana faster. the first three turns of a non cEDH game tend to be all set up. having stuff to do on the first few turns is pretty sweet. also throw in Coalition Relic over Darksteel Ingot . you lose out on the indestructible, but gain so much more mana out of it because of atraxa
because you can be a bit more of a combo deck that a guarantee you the people you play with don't expect, you wanna have more tutors in the deck. now you COULD run counterspells, or hear me out, you could run more tutors. stuff like Eladamri's Call , Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor , Enlightened Tutor , Worldly Tutor , Sylvan Tutor and of course instead of Diabolic Tutor try Mastermind's Acquisition . it's the same cost but also throws on a second mode for a wish so just in case people exile something you really could have wanted to use you can grab that bad boy back. also a better tamiyo to run is Tamiyo, Field Researcher .

You can always run disruption to slow your opponents down so your deck has more time to set up a win condition. Hall of Gemstone and Contamination mess with multicoloured decks and with a good set of mana dorks you won't be nearly as affected. Both of these enchantments also prevent interaction from your opponent on your turn disabling counter spells and other instant speed removal.
If aggro is more prevalent in your meta run some more fogs other than the fog-frog. Spike Weaver and Arachnogenesis are some serious powerhouses that can prevent combat and give you a board to work with.
The biggest leg up most decks have over Meren is the constant use of artifacts, so disrupt them. Bane of Progress is the quick and easy hail Mary for this problem but often can be stopped by Torpor orb so I would suggest including some of the following: Caustic Caterpillar , Thrashing Brontodon , Abrupt Decay , Collector Ouphe (I really like this one), Manglehorn , Return to Nature , Root Maze , Viridian Corrupter .
Meren is my GF's favourite deck so I see the damn thing ALL THE TIME. The deck's biggest weakness is the fact that most of the deck is at sorcery speed so there are some cards to include to make it a whole lot faster. Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Vedalken Orrery , and Yeva, Nature's Herald make most of your deck instant speed which is HUGE, essentially granting psuedo haste and protection from sorcery speed board wipes. Speaking of which...
Where are your board wipes? I know Damnation and Toxic Deluge are expensive but there are some fantastic creatures that acts as wipes as well. Demon of Dark Schemes , Massacre Wurm , and Night Incarnate are small board wipes on bodies that you can abuse.

I would have some sort of fog engine or static creature control in place so your walkers aren't constantly being picked at by everyone's creatures. Silent Arbiter and like effects prevents mass swing outs. Constant Mists and Spike Weaver are the best reusable fogs I can think of, the latter even having synergy with +1/+1 counter walkers.
A lot of super friends decks rely on stax effects like Tainted AEther and Pestilence to prevent creatures from sticking to the table so their walkers are untouchable. These are very powerful effects but I will warn you they will lose you friends or make you public enemy #1 upon sitting down at a table.

Spike Weaver is perfect FunBun. It’s a great card and I would love to include it. Sadly I’m not allowed to do that until there’s another artwork for it because „it looks too much like a spider“. That’s the price you have to pay if your girlfriend plays your decks too ^^

I like Tamiyo and I prefer her over Greenwarden of Murasa :)
Secrets of the Dead seems to be a bit random after some goldfishing. It can do a lot at times, but at other times you just wish you had a basic forest instead!
Also, I stumbled upon Spike Weaver today and I'm going to test it. It seems like the perfect control card. Have you tried it?
