MensRightsFTW what about Relic of Progenitus. Part of my idea was a land or enchantment that says Cards in your graveyard cannot be exiled

Cool voltron concept.

Riptide Laboratory to properly abuse that Snapcaster Mage.

Capsize would be a great spell in this draw/go strategy. Dust Bowl for similar reasons.

Mystic Speculation fits the top deck Counterbalance strategy.

Urza's Saga to grab that crucial Sensei's Divining Top, Relic of Progenitus removal and two powerful mana rocks.

Sentinel's Eyes cheap and reusable vigilance.

Narset, Parter of Veils round out the playset of powerful planeswalkers.

Pendrell Mists would be a useful stax tax.

This is indeed a very funny affinity deck. I can help here, friend. (:

I also think that you should replace Welding Jar, Shadowspear, and Gingerbrute either wil three copies of Welding Jar or three copies of Shadowspear, putting three copies of the other into your sideboard.

Consider going up to 25 lands, as a long time Pox player, Smallpox loves to be a double edged sword. I also suggest Liliana of the Veil and a more resilient threat than Bloodghast, there’s just too much Solitude & Relic of Progenitus in the meta right now. I’ve used Bitterblossom in the past but honestly I don’t know if that’s currently the right call, maybe Sword of Fire and Ice

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-

Besides that, the rest is looking really strong. I'm definitely going to steal some of your ideas. Nice deck!

If you are gonna main deck Blood Moon and not have it as a sideboard option I'd just go all in on a Skred Red control build.

Koth of the Hammer, Snow-Covered Mountain, Scrying Sheets Skred, Mind Stone, Pyrite Spellbomb, Galvanic Blast, Relic of Progenitus, Torpor Orb, Trinisphere.

Profet93 Thanks for the recommendations.

I have messed around with Mystic Forge and it's associated combo a bit but I ended up cutting Sensei's Divining Top as I felt that it was unnecessary more often than not and not having ways to shuffle consistently made it way worse if I didn't have a way to go infinite with it. I mighy try Mystic Forge again but I felt that it was too slow in my testing. cEDH nowadays has the "turn 3 rule" where you need to be threatening a win or overwhelming advantage by turn 3 consistently by turn 3 if you want to be relevant. From my testing, cutting a lot of the random value pieces for extra ramp has allowed for a lot more turn 2 or 3 Eldrazi Titans and a lot more success against cEDH decks.

Manascape Refractor has been very good in testing. Mishra's Workshop is my personal favorite but it also copies Inventors' Fair pretty frequently. Ancient Tomb or City of Traitors makes it into a Worn Powerstone (which I already run). Bazaar of Baghdad and Eye of Ugin are useful as well, especially when I have access to Unwinding Clock and can repeatedly activate a random tech land every turn. At one point, this deck ran Candelabra of Tawnos as a way to repeatedly use tech lands but I would argue that Manascape Refractor is a much better way to accomplish that. High Market, Homeward Path, etc. are also surprisingly useful. On that topic, using it as a High Market with access to infinite mana through Rings of Brighthearth + Voltaic Key + Chromatic Orrery (also gives infinite untaps of all artifacts) allowed me to win once as I didn't have access to a different way to sacrifice and recast Kozilek, Butcher of Truth.

I had no idea that Soul-Guide Lantern even existed. I'm not sure if I would call it a strict upgrade to Relic of Progenitus but it is definitely good. I might swap out Tormod's Crypt for it so that all of my graveyard hate can be cycled if it isn't relevant.

Regarding the Metalworker combo, a lot of the primer is outdated. I tried updating it a few times but I ended up changing out 20ish cards so I figured I would wait until I had a pretty stable list to update it. The Metalworker combo is absolutely a backup option though. Typically by the time I would go for that combo, I would have access to casting Kozilek. As for Field of the Dead, I am not a fan of tap lands and roughly 1 out of every 20 games with this deck would even go long enough to get to 7 lands for it's ability to be relevant. I think Field of the Dead would be good in a casual meta but I try to play this at cEDH tables as this deck is ridiculously unfair to play at casual tables.

Reliquary Tower is a good budget option but it might as well be a Wastes with the way the deck runs most games. I typically mulligan for some form of acceleration and try to immediately get to 10 mana which usually empties my hand. Kozilek will get me a new hand, but very rarely will I pass with more than 7 cards in hand, and if I do, I haven't had the scenario yet where I had to ditch anything useful.

The main form of drawing power in the deck is my commander. Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, War Room, Ugin, the Ineffable, sacrificing Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, or Dreamstone Hedron are the only other ones I have for card advantage. This deck is basically an all or nothing deck intent on playing really early Eldrazi Titans, going infinite, or playing stax to slow everyone else down (usually some combination of the 3). As colorless does not have access to particularly great interaction, I have tuned the deck to be about as fast as physically possible. Most games I am able to cast Kozilek, Butcher of Truth on turn 3 or earlier (admittedly almost always at least 1 mulligan for fast mana). Although some times people will have answers, that early in the game is enough to cause problems for most decks. The plan from there is to either just kill my oponents or do as you said where I cast Kozilek, draw some cards, ramp some more, and repeat. Although the situation will occasionally show up where the game goes long, this deck absolutely shines when it is doing terrifying things really early.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
