Woodland Bellower Discussion

Black/Green (as you can guess from the username) is kinda my jam, and reanimator is one of the things it does best. Your Meren actually wants similar things to my Alesha deck...a creature has to die for it to come back and be reused, and creatures that have great effects that you can reuse are going to be the best.
Look for good Enter the Battlefield (ETB) and Leave the Battlefield (LTB) effects at a variety of mana costs to trigger Meren's experience tokens. Look for mana ramp creatures that put lands into play instead of tap for mana such as Sakura-Tribe Elder, Farhaven Elf, Yavimaya Elder, Civic Wayfinder. What you want to ramp into are all the fun different things you can do and then recur. Thragtusk, Woodland Bellower, Greenwarden of Murasa, Agent of Erebos, Priest of the Blood Rite, Ravenous Chupacabra, Fleshbag Marauder
Also look for fun creatures that care when other creatures you control die, since you want that to happen.
Most importantly, sacrifice outlets to a.) stop your creatures from being exiled b.) get that experience as fast as possible and c.) keep reusing those ETB/LTB abilities. Look for cards like Nantuko Husk, Disciple of Bolas, Blood Bairn, Viscera Seer, Ashnod's Altar
One more note... Elixir of Immortality is your friend. Many players know how dangerous a well-stocked graveyard is, and getting yours exiled can knock the wind from your sails. It's 100% better for it to get shuffled into your library that be gone for good!

Kalonian Hydra, Hooded Hydra, Marwyn, the Nurturer, Sylvan Offering,Ulvenwald Tracker,Viral Drake, Cytoplast Manipulator, Druid's Call, Thada Adel, Acquisitor and AEther Mutation are all fun cards here. I think only the Kalonian Hydra is expensive.
Triskelion is amazing here.
If you want to strengthen the Elf theme there's enough to do the entire deck just with that. I was fiddling with my Ezuri deck and started to look at possible themes like Elf, Rogue, Wizard etc. Morph, Wizard and Elf were the strongest. Not enough creatures to make Modular work =(
I'm almost certain you're going to want some more protection for Ezuri once people start seeing him work.

Thanks Guys For your suggestions!
kamelyan I now see how Woodland Bellower can tutor for one of my other tutors like Fierce Empath or Mwonvuli Beast Tracker and help me get another big badass creature ready to be played next turn! also Mage Slayer with creatures like Malignus or anything equipped with Grafted Exoskeleton could be a game winner so that is at the top of my shopping list!
babushkasara I have added Sol Ring but I feel Command Tower isn't worth the value for me in a dual colour deck. World Breaker is my favourite of your other suggestions as I added it and it has saved my life and changed the game several times, especially against troublesome lands and decks with lots of graveyard recursion. Lurking Predators I wouldn't want to run purely because of the revealing aspect of the card as I like playing my big spells and shocking people when playing magic. The rest of your suggestions are definitely going to be worth ordering and testing in the deck!
Thanks again guys!

Kiora, the Crashing Wave explores seem good.
This style of deck probably thrives off of a modest suite of black sweepers, to reuse your effects. And it's obviously sacrilege to not run Putrefy.
On the topic of durdly land goofery, Ghost Quarter is mandatory, both offensively and as a way to recycle your lands into the graveyard for replaying and tutor up to new basics for additional basics. Lotus Cobra also sounds fun. Barrin, Master Wizard can sac your lands when they're in surplus for late game interaction, and is a reasonable mana sink for your alpha strike turns. Infernal Tribute might also be reasonable.
Recycling Nihil Spellbomb every turn is kind of boner inducing.

As I said, Spike Weaver is sweet anti-creature tech. There's also other Fog effects, but I tend to prioritize creatures since we run such a high amount of creature tutors that it's pretty easy find specific ones. Other than that, the best bet is to just slam a Deranged Hermit/Hornet Queen/Ant Queen/Woodland Bellower/Realm Seekers/Green Sun's Zenith the turn after playing Freya.

Deadeye Navigator is great with Zegana. Stormsurge Kraken and Gigapede are nice too, because they come out a turn before Zegana, give a lot of cards with her, and are hard to remove. Adding Great Whale and Palinchron gives you a way to make infinite mana and draw your deck with Deadeye as well.
Big, high CMC creatures are totally unnecessary. Zegana works much better with bounce/blink effects to draw more cards for less mana, through spells like Ghostly Flicker, Displace, and Illusionist's Stratagem. Since you want to win through combo anyway, there's no reason to have Eldrazi titans, Ghalta, or Myojin in the deck. Those flicker spells also combo with Great Whale/Palinchron and Eternal Witness/Archaeomancer to make infinite mana.
Your countermagic has really high mana costs. In my opinion, Miscalculation, Mana Leak, Spell Pierce, Arcane Denial, and Memory Lapse should all be used before any 3 mana counterspells. That being said, Forbid is super gross with Zegana as your commander. Also, Scour from Existence is terrible.

I think I would like Obstinate Baloth in the sideboard as a tool against Burn decks and Liliana of the Veil.
Are you sure you need the full 4 Nykthos? It is legendary after all. Maybe you could run 3 and add a couple of Oath of Nissa to dig for it.
Also, drawing multiple Eternal Witness in you opening hand might be awkward sometimes. How about replacing one with Woodland Bellower? It can grab Witness when you need it, but also gives you other options and a nice big body.

I've been getting into playing Fierce Empath to find Protean Hulk; then when the Hulk dies, grab Woodland Bellower to nab Eternal Witness, and scoop up Protean Hulk again. I seem to be doing that a lot lately, and it really helps with cards like Zendikar Resurgent and Path of Discovery.
