king-saproling My only concern with Mastery as the main wincon is that it's much more susceptible to instant-speed graveyard hate. It would mean that I would have to fold pretty hard to Tormod's Crypt unless I ran some kind of Krosan Grip type effect. Which, granted, I could do that if I was removing all the creature tutors, but it still feels somewhat iffy. I'm not sure.

Hey there, Cool deck idea! I would say that you need to incorporate more effects like Kardur, Doomscourge (effects that trigger when creatures die, for example) that punish your opponents for attacking anyone rather than just you. Your opponents can simply decide not to attack you until they can alpha strike you down (especially if you are going to be playing a lot of fogs). Try and come up with some creative ways to get your opponents to only attack you if your main win condition involves pumping your commander/draining them with effects like Hissing Miasma. Like, for instance, you are playing cards like Frontier Warmonger that reward your opponents for not attacking you - but you don't really want that presumably.
As far as cuts go - until you are happy with how your deck functions, you need to just cut out all the fluff (e.g. Jarad, Golgari Lichlord) and removal (Krosan Grip, etc). You can add that stuff back in later once your deck functions the way you want it to. And there are cards here that I think just don't realistically do anything for you:- Transmogrifying Wand Gruul War Chant Brash Taunter Frontier Warmonger, and several others. You could also cut some of the ramp - you don't need that much.
Ultimately I think you just need to chose whether you want your opponents to kill each others' creatures through combat so you can gain value off their carnage - or try and make them attack you somehow and then utilize fogs to protect yourself (in which case you NEED to play Isochron Scepter!). I hope this helps and that you repost it when it's finished! =)
Tyrant-Thanatos on Your Cheap Obscure Overperformers?

Stave Off - This card just does everything. It's so easy to miss that this can target creatures other than just the ones you control, and it makes a world of difference. Prevent buffs, debuffs, swing the tide of combat, the shear number of options this affords me feels nuts. I have a very hard time saying no to this in any deck with white.
Supreme Will - Choose between Mana Leak or Impulse for just 1 more. When I'm holding up untapped Islands in blue, there are two options I want: Interaction, or Card Advantage. This gives me both in a single card.
Priest of the Blood Rite - Setting aside my love of the way the mechanics and flavor tie together in this card; this thing is really easy to abuse. Sac and reanimate, flicker or blink, you can lay down a lot of 5/5 flyers with this faster than people expect.
Unravel the Aether/Deglamer - Shuffling things back into my opponents deck is often worse for them than destroying. By now there are a fair handful of "better than Naturalize" cards, but these two are my favorites, and are often met with sighs from opponents that would rather have been Krosan Grip'd than this.

Interesting deck, but I think it needs more protection against graveyard-hate. Especially a card like Krosan Grip is key as it doesn't allow activation of graveyard hate as a response to you killing some graveyard-hate (so it will neutralize stuff like Tormod's Crypt and Soul-Guide Lantern). You can also use a Elixir of Immortality as a reaction to someone casting a graveyard-hate spell, or you can pick out specific graveyard hate spells from someone's deck with a card like Jester's Cap.

Personally I find 35 lands to be the minimum I like to run. Rogue's Passage and Reliquary Tower have always served me well but you could also just do 2 more basics.
Ezuri's Predation seems like a shoe in for this commander. Avenger of Zendikar would be good too. Biovisionary if you don't mind alt win-cons. Awaken the Woods and Arachnogenesis maybe?
I see a distinct lack of removal here, I like to run at least 10 removal cards. Otherwise you are kind of just at the mercy of your opponents. Ezuri's Predation that I already suggested can be one but here are some others- Aether Channeler, Perplexing Test, Beast Within, Rapid Hybridization, Reclamation Sage, Terastodon, Acidic Slime, Krosan Grip, Pongify, Return to Nature are all decent options. Some of these are good targets for making copies of too, which could get nutty with say Ezuri's Predation...

thanks a ton. Underrealm Lich and Acidic Slime are on my to add list already. and for Blightstep Pathway Flip i was just saying the other day i need to do some land work on this deck to make it run more efficiently so thank for pointing out to change to Darkbore Pathway Flip.
i had never heard of Blood Artist or Grim Haruspex but ill make sure i grab them and find a way to work them in same with Krosan Grip and Indrik Stomphowler.

Good deck all around. I do have a couple of suggestions based on my long history with Meren.
1- Replace Blightstep Pathway Flip with Darkbore Pathway Flip. I'm assuming that's what you meant to enter?
2- Underrealm Lich is super underplayed in these reanimation-based decks, but it's beyond useful. It fills up your graveyard and protects you from milling out.
3- Blood Artist is pretty much a must-have for any aristocrats deck.
4- Grim Haruspex is incredible for card advantage.
5- Cards like Acidic Slime, Krosan Grip, and Indrik Stomphowler as most graveyard-hate cards are artifacts and enchantments and you'll want to be able to shut those cards down whenever you can (think Tormod's Crypt, Rest in Peace, Leyline of the Void, Relic of Progenitus, etc). You have some, but you could have more.
I like the deck themes you're working with; this looks pretty different from my build but I think this could help improve your power level a bit.

Nice deck! I play Meren too, she's a super fun commander.
Given my experience, a couple of suggestions-
- Aid from the Cowl is super powerful as it tends to get several huge creatures out over the course of the game, plus many smaller creatures.
- Carrion Feeder is a nice sacrifice outlet.
- Reclamation Sage, Krosan Grip, Acidic Slime, Quagmire Druid, and Indrik Stomphowler are super useful cards to run given the prevalence of highly-played artifacts and enchantments that exile stuff from graveyards (think Rest in Peace, Leyline of the Void, Relic of Progenitus, Tormod's Crypt, etc). Many of them synergize with the deck nicely, too, as a cherry on top.
- Zulaport Cutthroat and Vindictive Vampire can put you at a HUGE life advantage over the course of a couple of turns. I have even used them as my win condition a few times, they're super powerful in this deck.
Besides that, the rest is looking really strong. I'm definitely going to steal some of your ideas. Nice deck!
