Word. Yeah Spore Frog is ridiculously good in starting up the experience counters and just his general ability. Keep your eye out!!! And I agree with Deathreap Ritual as well

Definitely want Spore Frog. Spore Frog is probably the strongest card I would use with Meren. The card checks a lot of boxes, like being able to sacrifice itself and is easily brought back with Meren if you ever need a fog or even just extra exp counters. Plus, having a fog on board that you can sac at instant speed makes people less likely to attack you. Maybe swap it with Greenwarden of Murasa?? I don't think the cost to cast him is worth a second E-Wit effect...

Aiding on Dungeon Keeper (Semi-Competitive Meren EDH)

I would say to add more spot removal of some kind. I ran a Meren deck that infuriated my friends (reanimate a Void Winnower and durdle with Spore Frog until I could infinite persist combo with Melira) and the moment my friends began running any form of graveyard hate, the deck does almost nothing because the majority of the cards read "when x is put into the graveyard, x happens" Something as simple as an Anafenza can just sit on the field and as long as they have some little mana dorks, sacrifice effects wont edict her off the field. As I can see, you have 2 spot removals and one and half board wipes (BSZ is a half because of the larger mana requirement to kill the fatties.)

I still love the idea of the deck, but something as simple as a rest in piece can essentially go unanswered from your deck because of the lack of spot removal.

I would say Abrupt Decay and Beast Within are solid inclusions just as catch-all answers

A couple of suggestions:

Spore Frog is a fog each turn that ups Meren's experience counters.

If you can get a hold of one, Survival of the Fittest is nuts in Meren.

I would probably run Animate Dead or Reanimate over Rise from the Grave.

I prefer Grave Pact over Butcher of Malakir simply because it's generally harder to remove.

If you're not opposed to running combo, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion goes infinite for the win. You can also victimize if both are in your graveyard to win on the spot.

Altar of Dementia is probably my favorite sac outlet in the game. Great flavor, it's free, and you can increase the size of your own yard easily.

Pernicious Deed is always a good card to have. It's also very political in nature, and you don't always have to pop it. In a multiplayer game, often times people won't mess with you knowing you can wipe their board.

If you can get a hold of one, Craterhoof Behemoth is just better than Pathbreaker Ibex in most situations.

I like Nantuko Husk over Bloodflow Connoisseur.

Entomb puts whatever you want into the yard.

Living Death is another win con.

Hope some of that helps.

I've got to give a shoutout to my girl Meren of Clan Nel Toth. While most Meren decks (including my own) are far from budget, Meren can easily be built in a budget shell. In fact, you are likely to have many of the necessary cards lying around. Key cards include Fleshbag Marauder, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Viridian Emissary, Spore Frog, Caustic Caterpillar, Grim Haruspex, Satyr Wayfinder, Victimize, and Jarad's Orders. Of course, the deck can abuse many less budget cards (Eternal Witness, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Hell's Caretaker, Fauna Shaman and Entomb) but it is not even close to necessary for a starter shell. Also, keep in mind, not all cards are as expensive as you might think. In my deck, I find that Seasons Past and Demon of Dark Schemes are extremely powerful.
