Spore Frog Discussion

Thanks for the suggestions chadsansing!
Phyrexian Reclamation is on my radar, I've only had a chance to play the deck twice so far. I'll be running it again a few more times this week so I'll decide after that. My concern is that I won't need the effect more than a couple of times, hence the Mortuary Mire. We'll see though!
I've considered Unspeakable Symbol but rejected it because it just didn't seem to do enough. Bone Splinters is nice, if I need more removal it'll definitely be one I consider! Spore Frog isn't as useful without recursion and I rely too much on tokens for Soldevi Adnate I think. Necrotic Ooze and Vigor Mortis are too high on the curve for what they do I think.

I love it - working on non-budget list over at Mazirek Counters.
Have you tested with Phyrexian Reclamation? That might be a useful 2DH recursion effect. Unspeakable Symbol is another enchantment that might be useful. Bone Splinters is a sac-friendly piece of removal. Spore Frog and Soldevi Adnate might be useful sac creatures/outlets. Necrotic Ooze might be cool. Vigor Mortis brings a creature back from the graveyard with counters.
Have fun brewing!

direct budget swaps that are better most of the time.
I would say your curve is a tad high (average 4.03 atm, even with over 100 this is problematic). Depending on the speed of your meta you will get left behind on experience counters and setup if you can't play anything. So more value 2 drops and 3 drops will smooth the deck out.
I would also recommend Shadowborn Demon quite heavily in any meren deck. Surprise catch most kill with a slow sac outlet in a pinch (with a 5/6 flying body when you are adequately set up).
A question you want to ask yourself while cutting/swapping with this deck is: What do I want my mid/late game to look like?
Do you want fatty beats? (Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, etc)
Is this deck focused more on multiplayer amongst friends, store multiplayer, or 1v1?

Bane of Progress is one of the best boardwipes for a mono green deck, and can totally swing games in your favor. If you add that in, I would cut Tree of Tales since it doesn't seem to be helping the deck all too much. Some great ramp cards that you can play early are Voyaging Satyr and Arbor Elf, which can untap Nykthos, Jungle Basin, Temple of the False God, or a Forest with Overgrowth or something similar on it. Shamanic Revelation and Harmonize are some of the best single use card draw spells, and Spore Frog provides you with a fog effect while also adding to your green devotion.

Constant Mists, Spore Frog, Fog Bank can help you against aggro decks. 1v1 the only fast decks that gave me huge issue were Rafiq of the Many and Zurgo Helmsmasher if my starting hand was bad. If they hit their rocks and acceleration they swing for lethal turn 4, but one wrench throws that tempo off balance.
Overall I don't see many true to form aggro decks often, most swingy decks tend to peak at around turn 6 (xenagod, kaarthas, samut). If you feel that sort of thing coming, the best i can recommemd is to hold off playing kruphix until after hosing their tempo or killing/countering their commander.

Sorry for wall of text but I have a Meren Toolbox deck and here are some of my thoughts on what is good to use.
I would replace Shriekmaw with Bone Shredder. You can return it with Meren easier due to its lower CMC and it self sacrifices if you dont pay the echo cost (to make it easier to get into the graveyard).
Also, you already have Sidisi, Undead Vizier as a repeatable tutor card, and even Rune-Scarred Demon (which i think is inferior to Sidisi anyways), why also run Razaketh, the Foulblooded who has a ridiculously high CMC and requires sacrificing other creature and paying 2 life to search? A far better tutor that is easier to use is Yisan, the Wanderer Bard. More similar to Birthing Pod granted, but they go strait to the library and if you need to you can always sack Yisan to reset his counters. Entomb is also a fantastic tutor for this deck (as long as you arent planning on playing 1v1) and Corpse Connoisseur is Entomb on a creature.
Mindslicer is great for shredding opponents hands.
Agent of Erebos is great for destroying opponents graveyards.
