If you want a more unusual option than Spore Frog, you could try Dawnstrider , which doesn't need to be recurred each turn. Not sure why nobody uses it, other than it's old and uses an unpopular mechanic. I run both in my Meren deck, but I need discard outlets more than most Meren decks.

In my experience, creature based ramp plays really well in Meren, especially anything like Diligent Farmhand or Dawntreader Elk or even Yavimaya Granger . They aren't as good as Sakura Tribe Elder, but they can do a lot of work. The built in sac seems to be key, because it's hard to get a sac outlet consistently to start recurring your Wood Elves type creatures.

Callous Bloodmage is a really nice new card for a deck like this, very versatile.

Dawnstrider is more of an EDH card, but it might fit in here, and it's reasonably budget. Cool deck.

I've always shied away from discarding in this deck, but Dawnstrider is definitely a solid card. I'm gonna playtest it and see how it goes. As for Wild Pair, I ran it years ago in an earlier rendition of the deck and replaced it. Im going to wait until after the full spoiler list of ikoria to see what big changes I'll make, if any, and take a look at adding it back in. Thanks for the suggestions!

What about Dawnstrider for Fog Ability? Reliable staple card and reusable unlike Spore Frog.

Also, you have a lot of cards with similar total power/toughness. In that case, you might want to consider Wild Pair as that would combo well with your big bois and draw effects.

Awesome idea! I might try to build something similar, but without the infect.

Bubble Matrix is probably the best way to keep your creatures safe while still dealing all their damage.

Constant Mists is a Commander staple and works even better in your deck.

Spike Weaver is perfect for your deck since you are dealing with +1/+1 counters anyways.

Dawnstrider is probably also worth it, but much more fragile.

Arachnogenesis is a classic Fog effect in Commander.

Moment's Peace is still one of the best fogs you can play.

Finally, a home for Leery Fogbeast! I'm not sure if it's good enough, since opponents likely won't block it at all.

In terms of cuts, I think most of your current fogs could be replaced with the ones I've suggested. They are often too expensive or don't give you any additional value or can only be used once.

If most of your creatures have infect already, why play Triumph of the Hordes over another Overrun effect? You could get much stronger effects such as Craterhoof Behemoth.

The 3 I would remove myself are:

The 3 I would add would be:

Circle of Despair would be great as well but the only thing I could think of removing for it is one of your proliferate cards. That’s up to you on that one. The Wanderer is more of a meta dependent card. If your playgroup uses a lot of direct damage then I would add it. Dawnstrider is the weakest link of all of them so if you feel the need to add it you’ll have to figure out that one. Other than that I would definitely add the 3 and if possible the circle as well. They truly are game winners, at least they really work for my walker deck. I used to run Atraxa as well but I switched to Sisay, Weatherlight Captain once that set was released.
