Hey I like your deck and I got a few ideas while I was looking at it. If you are not interested in decking people i would cut the mill cards. Otherwise add Altar of the Brood. I think you could cut creatures that only provide tokens or are self recurring. Your commander makes everything come into play with tokens so you should always have things to kill. Im more a fan of effects like Carrion Feeder that don't end at end of turn. Burning up creatures for a few extra damage for one turn seems like not good enough for a long multiplayer game. Here's a few more random ideas..

I would second Casey4321's suggestion of adding Mikaeus, the Unhallowed: play Victimize to get both pieces of the combo. You could Dread Return targeting Eternal Witness to get Victimize back in hand...
I also appreciate the googly-eyed Triskelion by the way ;)

I would replace Geralf's Masterpiece for Advanced Stitchwing just cause hes easier to get back is still a flier and doesnt get smaller. Monastery Siege for Ancient Excavation so you can draw a bunch and discard a bunch, this helps with your commander getting some Z's in the grave. I'd also replace Victimize and Buried Alive with Whispering Madness and Day's Undoing. Dark Salvation for Necromantic Selection with all the new wheel affects you should be able to grab something good and its another board wipe. Maalfeld Twins for Overseer of the Damned just because hes super impactfu, a flier makes Z's and kills something when it comes out. Scourge of Nel Toth for Call to the Grave cause sacrifice is really good especially against voltron commander damage decks. Raving Dead for Phyrexian Delver. Wight of Precinct Six for Shepherd of Rot. Entomb for Graf Harvest purely for the menace, butyou could use the other abilitly in a pinch if your commander gets killed to much. Necrogen Mists for Windfall, again just so you get card draw and are still forcing people to discard. Epiphany at the Drownyard for Grave Pact. and to be sure you can get your value from cards like this id nix Nim Deathmantle for Ashnod's Altar. Geralf's Messenger is slow and 2 life wont do too much so id put in Nantuko Husk or Corpse Blockade for more sac outlets.

Ghirapur AEther Grid will help you abuse your orbs if your deck wants that.
Mother of Runes -- 'nuff said there
Cataclysm is great because it will likely lock down all opponents for the rest of the game.
Gonti, Lord of Luxury is pretty fun with Alesha
Victimize is great recursion.
Overall, nice deck!! +1

Like the deck idea!
Many artifacts double as creatures. One way to expand the theme could with more cards that care about creatures dying, such as Dictate of Erebos, Black Market and Deathbringer Thoctar. All still trigger, even if you get the card back.
Vedalken Engineer could also help as another artifact mana source.

I like the idea, and honestly i say keep your current commander, its something different you don't see all that oftenif you don't mind im just gonna list some cards that could be good for you, and some of my favorites
Demon of Dark Schemes while the -2/-2 might wipe your tokens and honestly might not be a great idea, I think his other ability make him at least worth a look
Sheoldred, Whispering One she lets you bring a creature back a turn and each opponent loses one, just if you have trouble with recursion
Vampire Hexmage for counter heavy decks if you need it
Black Market for that sweet sweet ramp if you need it
Palace Siege just here cause i like it, lets you either get creatures back or drain opponents
Victimize its a sac outlet and recursion all in one

My Meren duel commander deck started out much the same way, a budget deck based on the pre-con with a couple dozen cards I had lying around that fit the deck and has grown from there. I am going to throw a couple of cards I think you might want to run in no particular order but feel free to take a look at my deck and make some comparisons.
For a start I would look at your instant-speed removal. Fatal Push, Dismember, Abrupt Decay, Go for the Throat and Smother are all cards I would run in any duel commander deck in golgari colours though Smother only really gets good once you are in a competitive meta where fast games keep the average CMC of creatures low enough to keep Smother relevant.
Since you are already running Buried Alive/Jarad's Orders and Victimize I strongly suggest you run Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion as a way win the game on the spot. Mike and trike are individually powerful cards and mike especially synergies very well with most of what a Meren deck is trying to do in general. More often than not you don't even need Trike to win with Mike in play. Another great wincon for Meren is Blood Artist.
Overall I think you creature count is a bit low, though I can understand that you are making room for stax pieces. In no particular order take a look at Lotleth Troll, Scavenging Ooze, Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip, Wood Elves and Thragtusk. Each one of those creatures are all-stars in my deck.
I worked out after much testing that cutting all non-creature mana acceleration was the way to go, but your mileage may vary.
