Azoth2099 on 100 cards for Meren

Oh man, speaking of Sidisi, Undead Vizier & Razaketh, the Foulblooded - Diabolic Intent is another no-brainer here.

Blood Pet & Basal Thrull are also greats recs, y'all! Those Eldrazi Token generators reminded me to mention Sifter of Skulls as well.

Not sure how I forgot to mention this in my 1st post, but Proliferate bangs here. Consider Plaguemaw Beast, Unnatural Restoration, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Karn's Bastion, Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine & Evolution Sage.

Also, a word of warning: there is no way to keep Meren of Clan Nel Toth ultra-casual. Her nature as a Reanimator steers her to higher power levels than casual pods aim for. You'll see what I mean as you continue to refine your decklist!

Totally seeing that, there's actually probably even some easier ways with some of the cards I'm seeing that have reusable proliferate, just losing that first turn is a thing that will probably get you focused to death.

My workspace is over here Theorycrafting counter deck But, Karn's Bastion would probably work for yours, or your Flux Channeler. Guildpact Informant, Inexorable Tide, Thrummingbird, or Viral Drake are also good candidates.

That said you filled out a lot of my blue cards.

I think I'm shifting to Atraxa, Praetors' Voice which is an expensive card, but I splurge when it comes to lynchpins for a deck.

One more thing!!

As far as cuts go, anything EXCEPT FOR the following should be cut in favor of a more streamlined strategy with some of the pieces that have been mentioned imo:

Blightbelly Rat Bloated Contaminator Cankerbloom Fynn, the Fangbearer Phyrexian Hydra Scheming Aspirant Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Thalia and The Gitrog Monster Invasion of Ikoria  Flip Chromatic Lantern Grafted Exoskeleton Snake Cult Initiation Carnivorous Canopy Drown in Ichor Infectious Bite Putrefy Tainted Strike Command Tower Inkmoth Nexus Karn's Bastion

All of these are great picks that can easily slot into the deck's rework.

I ended up replacing Ugin, the Ineffable with Vraska, Betrayal's Sting right now. She has much more limited target removal but is less evasive (and my group tends to combo on creatures anyways). Too bad she couldn't turn things into non-sacrificial tokens though for removing commanders for greater length of time. There is so much artifact hate/board wipes in my group that I have switched some of the more costly mana ramp cards for some green ramp land fetch spells, so not missing the lower artifact cost benefit of Ugin. Also with all the new proliferate gems in All Will Be One, I feel that Karn's Bastion can probably be replaced?

Just for fun, throw in Karn's Bastion or something with Proliferate to put multiple Bounty counters on things.

Bounty Hunter and Termination Facilitator both put Bounty counters on creatures for more fun.

I feel like you need to punish opponents for for drawing cards or maybe reduce their hand size. Black Vise? One of the white cards that limit you to one spell per turn? Tainted Remedy

Maybe Blood Tribute since your boss is a vampire

Neat deck!

Dust Bowl incredible in the late game with all those basic lands.

Nesting Grounds tech.

Bonders' Enclave Bushido card draw.

Karn's Bastion and/or Sword of Truth and Justice double up the Bushido counters.
