Hey! Thanks for the comments!

I'll move the cantripping creatures under the utility section. The Great Henge is out of my budget, too, so I'll throw a Beast Whisperer in, replacing a Forest. I totally get what you are saying about Fractal Harness so I'll replace it with Pathbreaker Ibex. Thanks for the positive feedback!

I'll definitely think about dropping 2-3 more lands (note the Forest dropped above, but I'm paranoid about getting mana screwed, so I'll plan to get a few games in with it first and reassess then. And, yeah, I had Sage of Hours in before, but I didn't really feel like including an "I win" card in this version of the deck at this moment--totally fair, but not for me.

And I might be wrong here, but I really want my cards to do more than one thing. I used to run Avenger of Zendikar and Fable of Wolf and Owl, but I don't feel they do enough... Like, sure, they both produce a bunch of experience counters, but--and my opinion might shift after a few games--I'd rather all my creatures incrementally increment my exp counters and be a great target for the +1s themselves, instead of running cards that just give me exp counters, ya know?

Anyway, thanks again for the feedback, all!

I think you could easily cut a land, especially if you replace it with another card draw effect. As it stands, you're sitting closer to 11 of such draw cards than the 13 you say--the cantripping creatures don't provide card advantage, and as such should maybe be considered 1/3 of a card draw effect each.

The Great Henge, while a maddeningly expensive card, provides great repeatable draw, counters, mana, and even life. It just does everything! But if it's past your budget (as it certainly is mine), a simple Beast Whisperer would suffice.

I do see Pathbreaker Ibex in your considering-board; Fractal Harness seems far worse than the Ibex in a deck that doesn't really care about going hard on one specific creature's counters, such as this one appears to me.

I like the deck though, always happy to comment on folks' decks who clearly know what they're doing--makes it so I don't have to comment the same old mana rocks again and again.

Nice deck! I feel like the deck is probably missing some draw tho? You have a shit ton of creatures so all effect like Beast Whisperer, Primordial Sage, The Great Henge, Zendikar Resurgent, Garruk's Uprising could be good I think even if it's on cast for a couple of them. I also like Shamanic Revelation, Return of the Wildspeaker and Rishkar's Expertise

Pir, Imaginative Rascal is great human that does what you want with counters. I know you don't want to run too many non-human creatures, but Beast Whisperer would be worth it for the card draw, and Rishkar, Peema Renegade would help you ramp like crazy. Rootborn Defenses is another good protection option.

I find Sakura-Tribe Elder is a very good card in Meren. I run 5 cards that serve a similar purpose presently, and I am rarely unhappy to draw them (though I run a lot less lands). If I can get a card like Elder out early, I can end up with a ton of mana while adding to Meren's XP count. Blood Pet is another interesting option.

Here are a few other cards I think might work. If you like to win with attacking, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest is a nice option, those counters can add up quickly. Ohran Frostfang is another great attacking option, probably better in Meren than Toski, Bearer of Secrets, who might also be a fun alternative to Beast Whisperer. There are also Grim Haruspex and Midnight Reaper, these can be better than Phyrexian Arena in my experience. I also use Liliana's Standard Bearer, which can draw a mittfull of cards, including after you are boardwiped. Rise of the Dread Marn can help vs board wipes as well. Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder can make a fair number of tokens, and if you can keep sacrificing them he won't die (and becomes a very solid token generator). Foundation Breaker is a pretty handy removal effect stapled to a body, it's Evoke cast is also cheap XP (and a body in the yard). Sidisi, Undead Vizier is almost too good in Meren in my experience, but I feel I should mention her.

Cool deck, lots of interesting choices in here! I think you have 2 Willow Geist atm.

Hey, you changed Sliver Commander, now playing Overlord instead of Hivelord. It looks like you've already added some of those cards I suggested except Scapegoat. Scapegoat could replace Lymph Sliver as it's effect is minimal protection for a five drop Sliver.

Some other upgrades you could make:

By changing to Overlord as Commander then you lose easy access to indestructible from Hivelord thus my advice is increase the amount of Slivers that provide good protection.

I think you should cut: Brutalizer Exarch, Conduit of Ruin, Frost Titan, Giant Adephage, Myr Battlesphere, Oblivion Sower, Pelakka Wurm, Phyrexian Ingester, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, Rattleclaw Mystic, Sagu Mauler, Simic Sky Swallower, Sphinx Ambassador, Stalking Vengeance, Tornado Elemental, Plasm Capture, Pandemonium, Sunken Hope, Tezzeret the Seeker, Chromatic Lantern, Darksteel Ingot, Disaster Radius, Explosive Vegetation, Heat Shimmer, Rude Awakening, and Spelltwine. As for lands, I do think you should replace: Izzet Boilerworks, Spawning Bed, and Temple of the False God.

I think you should add: Temur Sabertooth, Genesis Ultimatum, Etali, Primal Storm, Skyshroud Claim, Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Chaos Warp, Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient, Terror of the Peaks, Kodama of the East Tree, Reclamation Sage, Kogla, the Titan Ape, Consecrated Sphinx, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Wood Elves, Ilharg, the Raze-Boar, Diluvian Primordial, Prime Speaker Zegana, Release to the Wind, Return of the Wildspeaker, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Garruk's Uprising, Guardian Project, Unnatural Growth, and Arcane Signet.

I do think one option that you have is replacing all signets with mana dorks like Birds of Paradise, Llanowar Elves, and Elvish Mystic

If you are able to find more slots, I think you should consider: Hullbreaker Horror, Thryx, the Sudden Storm (dependent on count of spells with 5 cmc or more), Soothsaying, Mulldrifter, Beast Whisperer (dependent on final count of creatures), Rishkar's Expertise, Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip, See the Unwritten, Balefire Dragon, Scourge of the Throne, Bane of Progress (I feel like you do not have a ton of high value artifacts or enchantments that would cause this to cripple you), Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, and Genesis Storm.

I usually want around 20 of a type of card to justify running an effect that cares about it--that allows for one in 5 cards to be synergistic with it.

I would instead run Beast Whisperer, or--if you can afford it--The Great Henge.
