Cool deck idea!

I am not sure you need Conjurer's Bauble in here, this deck should be very stable already. I would replace these with Wild Growth to feed Ancestral Mask and ramp all at once.

Also not a fan of using Bequeathal while being entirely dependant on blocking to activate it; I feel Snake Umbra would bring more value, protecting your beaters with Totem armor and triggering draw.

Alchemist's Vial will prevent one blocker or one attacker for 3 mana and is telegraphed if left on the board, with the added benefit of cantrip. I would weight it against Elemental Uprising, that would also take care of a blocker while also potentially destroying it, or could be used as a backup creature to finish a match.

It would be nice to see a sideboard for the deck. Other cards I could see playing a role here would be Seal of Strength and Yavimaya Elder, possibly also Bonesplitter or Glistener Elf.

You play only 2 fetches and 0 dual lands. You have no use for Chromatic Lantern or Thran Dynamo. Change them to Mana Crypt and Mana Vault. Also Woodfall Primus, Steel Hellkite, Solemn Simulacrum and Yavimaya Elder are not doing much. Putrefax, Phyrexian Dreadnought, Frantic Search, Fathom Mage, Entomb, Reanimate, Abrupt Decay, Assassin's Trophy are missing. You have only TWO instant speed removal and only one counterpell and you call this competetive?

@Ironheart78 - those are good creatures for constant card draw! the Baleful Force and Indulgent Tormentor are the ones i'll most likely to include.. probably the Yavimaya Elder as well.. Thanks for the suggestions!

My spoilers in the comment above arnt working for me so im trying something different. "If you want to sift through some cards you can look at each section, but I would recommend just looking at the first grouping to start with, as I went a bit too far with the other lists. Those lists are fine to just look at ideas or "good cards" but there are far too many to call them suggestions.

I noticed that three of your cards show in more than one category so to save myself and anyone who considers building this deck some headache, here's a list of the all the dupes and what category they're in.

Hey, wow a turn three win, good job.

Apprentice Necromancer is too good with Hulk because he can give you an instant way to reanimate/sac Hulk since you can sac Necromancer at instant speed. The great thing about Necromancer is he can sac Hulk after reanimating meaning you don't also need a sac outlet to combo off. With Necromancer on the battlefield and Hulk in your graveyard your opponents can't tap out because when they do you can response for only to reanimate Hulk and combo off at instant speed. Because Necromancer is a creature then he has good interaction with Meren and having reanimation that comes from a creature who can also give you experience is helpful.

If you're looking for fast wins such as turn two/three then Necromancer can be an enabler for this with Entomb because Necromancer sacs Hulk at the end of the next turn. Dark Ritual is great for fast wins, it's staple ramp for black. Ritual + Necromancer + Entomb, these three cards can be a turn two win. Turn 1: play Swamp/Tower/Overgrown/Peatland/Wastes, cast Ritual, cast Necromancer, cast Entomb for Hulk. Turn two sac Necromancer reanimate Hulk and at your end step you could win.

I'm not a fan of Yavimaya Elder . Your card instinct to cut it is spot on because you're right there's much better ramp cards and Elder is not actually ramp since it doesn't put the land onto the battlefield instead into your hand which is lackluster.
