Hey love seeing new meren decks out there. This is the deck that I have been using since meren has been out https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/graveyard-queen-meren-of-clan-nel-toth/ . I recommend taking a peak and hopefully there might be some fun stuff for you to find. If you have any questions on why I use or dont use certain cards feel free to ask.
So one thing Meren decks love to do is abuse ETB or LTB triggers and sac outlets. So I recommend any card that helps synergize with those type of effects or have those type of effects. A good ETB trigger is Terastodon, it blows up a lot of stuff and is easy to cast with cards like Natural Order or Pattern of Rebirth which I recommenced putting in your deck as well. Things that enjoy dying is nice like Mindslicer. This card is nice because it really hurts your opponenets but you enjoy having stuff in your graveyard so you benefit from having mind slicer be constantly sac.
Having a Demonic Tutor is nice but also any tutors that you can abuse will also be nice. For example Fierce Empath, Woodland Bellower, and Sidisi, Undead Vizier are really nice. A nice combo is fierce empath can tutor woodland for you and woodland can then get you any of your strong 3 drops, the reverse can happen as well. you can play woodland get fierce empath to enter and then you can get your hulk or combo piece out.
For planeswalker, Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip is an amazing one to have. I recommend cutting vraska but that is just because I personally think all the vraskas are bad for edh decks, especially meren edh decks.
If you want to be rude, Contamination is a nice card to lock out most decks with.
Also I recommend going down to 36 lands and then when you add more mana dork and ramp you should go below 36 lands. High Market is a good land cause its a 0 mana sac outlet for your deck.
If you want a strong and fair win, It That Betrays is really strong especially because it can steal other commanders.
I hope you end up having a lot of fun playing meren and I hope this advice helps out.

Seems pretty solid- a nice mixture between fair Ghave with loads of combo backup. I can safely recommend Pattern of Rebirth for the deck- it's a solid way to find Razaketh, Mikaeus, or Woodfall Primus for a much lower cost.
Quick note about the Yawgmoth combo with Undying creatures- you need both Geralf's Messenger and Young Wolf in order for Yawgmoth to reset the Undying creature's +1/+1 counter. This is because Yawgmoth's ability requires a target.
So if you have just Young Wolf and sacrifice it to Yawgmoth, you can target Young Wolf with the -1/-1 counter ability, sure. However, due to the sacrifice and Undying trigger, the Young Wolf that comes back into the battlefield will not be the same one as the one that was targeted, so no -1/-1 counter will be placed. This is the same reason that, if you target someone's creature with Assassin's Trophy and they respond with Momentary Blink, your Trophy will do nothing: Because the creature targeted left play and the creature that entered is a new instance of that creature (so the creature targeted is no longer a valid target).
Outside of that, everything looks reasonably solid. Here's the list I play: Ghave: Baby Makin' and Alimony. I like the reanimation package; I'm currently on Hulk because why not but the reanimation might work better during more drawn out games.

Any time you are in green and want to speed up a deck, you should first make sure you are using all of the 1 drop mana dorks available to you. Birds of Paradise,Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves, Arbor Elf, Elves of Deep Shadow, Deathrite Shaman. In doing so you can drop a few lands to speed up the deck and have fewer dead draws. Mana dorks op.
There are a few cards in here that I find questionable that could be replaced for more speed and power if that is what you are looking for. Doubling Season imo is not really the way you want to go unless you are all in on either tokens or counters and I don't think you have quite enough considering the cmc of this bad boy. Darksteel Forge is weak here due to the low number of artifacts and the fact that muldrotha doesn't give a golly gosh darn about things being destroyed. That Which Was Taken is another instance of mully-D not caring about things dying too much so it could go. Planar Portal is a very high cmc for a tutor, sure it is repeatable, but a Diabolic Intent, Eldritch Evolution, Birthing Pod, Pattern of Rebirth, Entomb, Buried Alive, Intuition or Finale of Devastation would be faster and therefore stronger here. As Foretold is a sick card in formats where you can cast suspend cards for free reliably, here... you don't have enough cheap spells to get the most from it. Mortus Strider's ability is redundant and is basically just a vanilla 1/1.
A few fun cards you could add are Darkblast, Life from the Loam, God-Eternal Rhonas, God-Eternal Bontu, God-Eternal Kefnet, Lotleth Troll, Underrealm Lich, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Deadbridge Chant, Jarad's Orders, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed
I hope this wall of text has some ideas you like!

I have a super similar list: But I would definitely add Acidic Slime over Archon of Justice. It fits better into the reveillark loop, though it has less versatility. I'd also add Finale of Devastation,Reclamation Sage or Manglehorn, AND DEFINITELY Skullclamp. Also, Open the Armory, as it can find Pattern of Rebirth AND Skullclamp

Nice meren deck. This is mine that I have been using since meren has came out as a card. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/graveyard-queen-meren-of-clan-nel-toth/ If you have any questions on why I use or dont use a card let me know, I am always happy to help other meren players out.
Having a Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip and Reanimate is nice for backup reanimation cards. Meren does typically get targeted so you want your 99 to be really tight and well. Then Meren is just the nice gravy engine that takes the deck from 100% to 1000%. So having similar effects of Meren is nice.
Sac outlets are very important for meren cause you want your exp counters to be as high as possible. It also synergizes well with merens ability. Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar are nice ones to use cause they can generate mana. Carrion Feeder is a good one drop sac outlet that can sac itself. Protip: you mainly want creatures that can sac themselves and others vs just others. The exception to the rule is creatures with really strong abilities like Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Diabolic Intent is very nice because it is a tutor and a sac ability combined together.
Because meren ability revolves around bringing the dead back to life, you want creatures that can either kill themselves, have strong etb triggers, or like to die so you abuse meren ability and get a lot of value. Plaguecrafter, Fleshbag Marauder, and Merciless Executioner are some creatures that a really solid etb trigger. I recommend at least running Plaguecrafter. Terastodon has a very nice etb trigger, it also synergizes well with natural order. Getting a turn 3 or turn 4 terastodon and targeting 3 lands is a nice way to get somebody to scoop. Mindslicer is a wonderful creature in meren decks, you sac it get an exp counter, make everybody top deck, and you fill up your graveyard. Everybody is suffering except you.
You are playing black and green so you have access to some really strong tutors. Pattern of Rebirth is a really good one because it just grabs any creature. Woodland Bellower is nice because it puts the tutor creature onto the battlefield, Fierce Empath is a nice tutor to grab any of your big creatures. Whats nice is both these cards synergize with each other so you can cast woodland bellower, tutor fierce empath and then grab another big creature Or do the inverse and you can do fierce empath to grab woodland so then woodland can get you a useful small creature. What is also nice is both of these are creature cards so you can abuse them with meren ability and keep tutoring cards each turn.
Some straight upgrades. Instead of Wall of Roots use Devoted Druid. Same mana cost but you can use devoted druid ability more then once per turn, plus when it dies you get an exp counter. Instead of Nyx Weaver use Altar of Dementia, same mana cost but easier to cast cause colorless, its a sac outlet so it synergizes with the deck better. It also has a higher roof which means you can mill yourself much more then 2 per turn. Also its ability if flexible and you have the option to mill other people but that isnt as strong as just milling yourself. Instead of Glowspore Shaman try Entomb or Buried Alive, it allows you to search your deck and pick what card you want to put in your graveyard. What is also nice is entomb is at instant speed.
I hope this helps a lot.
