New stuff/Lowering curve a bit.

It looks like your trying to go budget with this list as well as low cmc, and +1/+1 counters. Meren of Clan Nel Toth wants creatures to get those experience counters. As well as sac outlets. id recommend increasing creatures and cutting from mostly instants and some enchantments possibly sorcerys too. Also not entirely sure why your running Black Knight . On that note.
all low drop creature sac outlet to make those xp counters while meren is out yahenni can get particularly mean as he gets big from board wipes that he can survive.
Skullclamp card draw.
Ashnod's Altar sac outlet and mana.
Sakura-Tribe Elder is great ramp as if meren see it die she gets a xp counter and if she has 2 she just puts it on the battlefield at end step to ramp even more.
Corpsejack Menace explosive with +1/+1.
Fleshbag Marauder make em sac get a counter.
Plaguecrafter make em sac premium.
Merciless Executioner make em sac more.
Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest benefit from them sacing.
Savra, Queen of the Golgari benifit from sacing only if you can sac reliably though. i still feel she is worth mentioning.
Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord a sac outlet that gets big and can win you the game.
Pir, Imaginative Rascal get more counters.
Managorger Hydra get alot of counters.
Gyre Sage get ramp with +1/+1.
Poison-Tip Archer make em pay with life for all the death.
Skullwinder good for politics.
Pollenbright Druid uber cheap proliferate or +1/+1.
Ravenous Slime make other graveyard deck hate you as your creature get huge.
Scute Mob adorable and terrifing if left on the field to long.
Tendershoot Dryad if you like tokens.
Vigor he makes everything bigger.
Vulturous Zombie bird that gets big.
Winding Constrictor more counters
Golgari Grave-Troll dredge +1/+1 counter a golgari staple cheaper since the reprint
Skullbriar, the Walking Grave +1/+1 staple
you also might want creatures to bomb into with meren.
Avenger of Zendikar high cmc yes but if hes in the grave with enough xp free plants that get bigger or die for xp.
Hornet Queen same as avenger but deathtouch and flying they dont get bigger but dont really need to.
Underrealm Lich is a great way to filter through your top deck and load your graveyard. combos with the oh so pricey but oh so worth it Sylvan Library the way the replacement effect works with these two out has you drawing three cards keeping one putting two into the yard 3 times for 3 more cards in hand an 6 more in your graveyard for meren to see at endstep. (sorry if unnecessary i love that combo.)
i may have gone a little overboard (and could go on) but i think looking through the creatures i mentioned might be able to give the deck a shot in the arm probably aim for 30-35 creatures as thats what meren wants to abuse. thats just the creatures though and you still might want to look into increasing your ramp and card draw.
i hope this helps.

Hey there, I have some suggestions first would be Plaguecrafter you already have two similar effects but the control over the board is always welcome,because it is hard to outgrind Meren when she does her thing.
As Greg said try, to get your hands on as many 1 drop manadorks as you can,so you can speed up your engine because you will draw hate as Meren fast and if you are heavily disrupted in the early stages of the game it can get tricky to get a foothold on The board later on (sidenote Exploration and Burgeoning may also help).
I also enjoy Birthing Pod in my Meren deck as a reapeatable tutor/saccoutlet it can help to get the creatures you need in some situations.
Also maybe add 1-2 additional artifact/enchantment removal spells in case something like Torpor Orb hits the field which would screw you up otherwise.
Last as mentioned try to get your hands on a Viscera Seer free saccoutlets are very powerful in your deck and the cheaper they are the better they become, Phyrexian Tower would also be a major upgrade to your manabase.
Suggestions to cut: Winding Constrictor yes you have a +1counter subtheme but the creatures are either removed if they get too big or not online at all which makes this card more or less a vanillacreature
Wall of Blossoms :it's often used as a filler to thin your deck a little but you would profit more from a simple manadork
Eater of Hope to expensive for a a evasive beater and you could have better saccoutlets if you want a scary creature for The top of your curve Terastodon would be better in my opinion or Attrition for the removalaspect
Extractor Demon would be fin if you had more cards to reanimate creatures of The opponent but the mill alone isn't Wörth it mostly
Vulturous Zombie ...meh
Hope some of these suggestions help with The deck.

Okay so first update
Although I can imagine Pyroblast being good my group very rarely runs blue so it's probably a waste in this situation.
Thanks for the input!

other evoke creature are also really great like Spitebellows
Malignus to have insane a creature with insane easily power.
Berserk is insane in this deck but it's a not a cheap card.
Vulturous Zombie i don't know if he will have enough time to be better than other t5, it might be complicated to help him survive with the few protection you have.
Flesh is good flexible card that will help you finish the game.
I think that you have enough draw and i don't think that a counter based theme is great in the for the deck, card that double the number of counter are really good but card that only put 1 additonnal counter are not powerful enough.
Good luck !

I really like your deck cascadien. I love the inclusion of Woodripper and Vorel. Looking at your maybe-board, Avatar of the Resolute , Vulturous Zombie and Grim Affliction are cards I'd maybe include on your mainboard.
Cheers! For my deck, I'm aiming to be a group hug/slug deck with Xantcha. Trying to upgrade it while staying under the 120$ line.

I love it, but I think Slitherhead is too slow. Vulturous Zombie could really help you ramp the +1 counters, especially against opponents that run sacrifice engines. You should also replace a forest with a Llanowar Reborn for the free +1/+1 counter on a creature (this counter can get doubled too if you proliferate, which gets you more mileage by throwing free +1s on creatures entering the battlefield). Consider also Forced Adaptation , which is slow but imagine the combination of having it on Fathom Mage or Sharktocrab , Mutant's Prey makes good removal, and Savage Summoning if you're playing against a lot of blue. (I like these better than Villainous Wealth .) I would also put Nimbus Swimmer and Shambleshark into your maybeboard, play test with them, but I don't feel confident enough to say definitely mainboard them. They might be good, so I just thought to mention them. (Evolve is just so good) These are just my thoughts. I like it overall! GLHF

What I'd take out:
- Whiptongue Hydra (no synergy and very situational)
- Pelt Collector (cards like Wight of Precinct Six cost only 1 mana more and get way bigger)
- Dryad Greenseeker (there are a lot of better options for your deck)
- Chlorophant (same as Pelt Collector)
- Ghoultree (Boneyard Wurm is similar, but always only costs 2 mana)
What I'd put in:
By the way, Guardian Project is a great card. First time that I see it.
