Hey love seeing new meren decks out there. This is the deck that I have been using since meren has been out https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/graveyard-queen-meren-of-clan-nel-toth/ . I recommend taking a peak and hopefully there might be some fun stuff for you to find. If you have any questions on why I use or dont use certain cards feel free to ask.
So one thing Meren decks love to do is abuse ETB or LTB triggers and sac outlets. So I recommend any card that helps synergize with those type of effects or have those type of effects. A good ETB trigger is Terastodon, it blows up a lot of stuff and is easy to cast with cards like Natural Order or Pattern of Rebirth which I recommenced putting in your deck as well. Things that enjoy dying is nice like Mindslicer. This card is nice because it really hurts your opponenets but you enjoy having stuff in your graveyard so you benefit from having mind slicer be constantly sac.
Having a Demonic Tutor is nice but also any tutors that you can abuse will also be nice. For example Fierce Empath, Woodland Bellower, and Sidisi, Undead Vizier are really nice. A nice combo is fierce empath can tutor woodland for you and woodland can then get you any of your strong 3 drops, the reverse can happen as well. you can play woodland get fierce empath to enter and then you can get your hulk or combo piece out.
For planeswalker, Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip is an amazing one to have. I recommend cutting vraska but that is just because I personally think all the vraskas are bad for edh decks, especially meren edh decks.
If you want to be rude, Contamination is a nice card to lock out most decks with.
Also I recommend going down to 36 lands and then when you add more mana dork and ramp you should go below 36 lands. High Market is a good land cause its a 0 mana sac outlet for your deck.
If you want a strong and fair win, It That Betrays is really strong especially because it can steal other commanders.
I hope you end up having a lot of fun playing meren and I hope this advice helps out.

Thank you for the suggestions criscofieldsforever! Yea, the one time I ran Selvala the deck definitely played more smoothly from the get-go.
Loxodon Smiter is a pet-card but it probably should be something that does more. I switched to Prowling Serpopard for protection from counters and this will give me a reason to finally pick one up.
Good call on Wispweaver and Sabertooth. Switched one to Woodland Bellower to find Serpopard or Wayward as needed and the other to Lumbering Battlement. I like the idea of casting him and then Day of Judgment so fingers crossed there is no exile removal in response!
Also Baru was not going to be doing as much work without Karametra always present so switched some stuff up and added Kytheon's Irregulars. Always wanted to play with them and I hope to make his tap ability into a political tool.
And Dragonlord Dromoka is a good suggestion but sadly she is too expensive for my wallet at this time.

Hey, after seeing your deck it made me wanna draft up a risen reef brew. What do you think of my take on your deck.. Risen Reef Buddies? It's trying to get lots of extra land out with simic shenanigans, and runs Woodland Bellower to fetch more reefs. It feels lacking in finishers and removal. I'm debating on what to add, but not sure. Cyclonic Rift? Maybe you could suggest some fun stuff. Fun over powerful, but I would like to be able to ruffle some feathers with it of I actually built it and brought it to a modern event.
I've got 5 card slots still open.

The first two can be dropped on turn 1 and can repeatedly ramp your lands as opposed to the once-off effects of the other two. The Hyrax Tower Scout is a new addition from Theros: Beyond Death as another option to be fetched with Woodland Bellower. It also reduces the initial activation cost of the combo with Temur Sabertooth. Priest of Titania is the wrong CMC for this deck as a mana dork. It would be an awful feeling if you have to cast that on turn 2 instead of Selvala, Heart of the Wilds.

Tata - Nissa, Voice of Zendikar is a pet card. She was the first planeswalker I ever pulled out of a pack. She's not perfect for the deck, but she has been pretty good. Token generation isn't the worst, the pump is ok. She's pretty low threat so getting to her ult isn't as difficult as you would think (at least in my meta).
I've leaned out removal in this deck over the last few months. I have plenty of other decks that run more, and I wanted this deck to play a bit more aggressively and try to outpace everyone else. Beast Within is good enough for me atm. Generous Gift is great, but for now one instance of that type of removal is what I'm looking for. You're definitely right about Woodland Bellower though. I'll pick up a copy soon and look at getting it slotted.
Same goes for Fleetfoot Panther. That's one that I have sleeved and ready to put in. Just haven't pulled the trigger yet. Usually by the time I get either the lion or skyfisher out I've bounced them out enough to give me a huge lead. Redundancy is always nice. I might put him in soon and playtest having all three for a while. Thanks for the feedback!

Is Nissa, Voice of Zendikar really impactful aside from its Ultimate? And is that even realistic to reach?

Rankle, Master of Pranks tends to be one of the better engines in the deck, allowing for sacrifice, eating at each players' hand, and drawing cards in a pinch. Winding Way is one of the cards that permits the deck to run so few lands (only 31), so I am not too comfortable cutting it.
Catacomb Sifter is an interesting one. I often find it gets me quite a bit of value, but I could see cutting it pretty easily. Falkenrath Noble can also be lacking, but effects that gain life every time something dies tend to be sought out in-game.
For fodder, I want to primarily have a low curve early game, being turns one through three, then play a sacrifice outlet and draw engine turns three and four. What you suggest is a little too expensive for what this deck currently does.
Pitiless Plunderer is fine, but a 1/4 for four is not appealing, especially in a deck that is not very mana-hungry.
