Boxfish Hey! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I finished up a series of decks I had been working on just recently; saw I had some notifications regarding this deck and the new additions are beautiful! Necrotic Ooze can lead to a beautiful toolbox of effects. Especially if you pop a Viscera Seer or Woe Strider which pop up in a ton of sac engine decks; or to become a mana dork or combo piece if anyone runs artifact dudes. Heck Yeah!
Graveyard hate is. Rough. It feels rough when you don't have answers for it. When it's creature-based, great. Black mana is excellent for resolving this. But when it comes to destroying enchantments. Black struggles. Realistically it's just easier to make your opponent sacrifice them, which isn't often simple with some mono Black strategies. I wish I had useful advice for such endeavors. It's namely just suffocating out your competition with value you so you can lock them out, or answer their plays; and you've got plenty of answers that's for sure.
Be sure to keep an eye out for Dominaria United this September. It features a new Sheoldren card and a Phyrexian Invasion on Dominaria. I look forwards to using what comes out to make a flavorful Phyrexian-only Yawgmoth, Thran Physician deck to play against a Weatherlight Crew deck, Sisay, Weatherlight Captain I've been slowly making. Every card featured from a set specifically referencing the Weatherlight Crew and its characters (likewise for the Yawgmoth deck). So that I can recreate Yawgmoth's Vile Offering where Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero brings Yawgmoth Urza's head, as promised and depicted in one of the Phyrexian Arena arts. Gerrard betraying this promise uses Urza's head (still alize, magically) to use the Legacy Weapon in an attempt to defeat Yawgmoth once and for all.

Really appreciate the feedback QuiteFrankly13!
I've purchased a lot more cards in the last week or so, including Chainer, Dementia Master and Woe Strider. Luckily, I already had a Carrion Feeder laying around, so he's made the cut as well. I've played this a few times now and it's for sure coming down to being able to strike a balance between pulling from the graveyard, and actually getting stuff in there. The biggest hurdle I hit my first two games was just getting cards from the deck to the graveyard fast enough. So, I also ended up adding / replacing some cards with ones that would mill the deck, or allow me to draw/discard, or even better yet, place straight from the deck to the graveyard. I've also been thinking about trying out Meren of Clan Nel Toth, as they seem to be a more effective commander for this type of deck. Additionally, they maybe stand a lower chance of upsetting all 3 others. Unlike Sheoldred, Whispering One who might become too much of a target since they force everyone else to sac creatures.
Thanks again for the help. Hopefully I'll have the (at this point) version 2 of this deck up sometime in the next few days after I get a few more rounds in to make sure it's working out at least somewhat better than before.

Good list! In my experience playing a Meren reanimator/sacrifice deck, Sheoldred is a bit slow and costly (mana-wise) for a reanimator commander and eats removal like candy. If she can be protected or is left on the battlefield for a bit though, she can be a great value engine.
Have you checked out Chainer, Dementia Master as a potential commander? He gives instant-speed reanimation/recursion and if you have a sac-outlet on the field, his exile clause is negated. Even if you ultimately decide against it, he'd be a strong addition in the 99.

As far as mechanics go? I think the ones you listed are the main ones. Maybe Escape cards from Theros: Beyond Death? (Woe Strider etc) As far as cards go, there are always the Reassembling Skeleton type cards. Luminous Broodmoth from Ikoria might also be worth looking at. What are the potential commander options?

Dark Prophecy is solid, if you plan on taking advantage of the land untapping Font of Agonies is pretty good. i've been liking Dig Up as a casual tutor card because of the mechanic. i dont know how often you've gotten to play this deck but i feel like you need more sac outlets. Woe Strider, Carrion Feeder i've always liked Disciple of Griselbrand. that's all i got for suggestions. enjoy beledros i love my deck i made of him

Meren is my first and favorite commander deck I've ever owned so I have been working on mine since it came out.
So some really good additions I've used are:

this deck has alot of mill and ways to get stuff in the graveyard (although missing Golgari Grave-Troll and Golgari Thug) but then...what happens next? like you swing with a big creature(and no Splinterfright?)? not sure what the game plan is here unless you misread old rustein. Some payoffs for milling could be Syr Konrad, the Grim, Kessig Cagebreakers, Dread Return and other good flashback cards, Timeless Witness and Eternal Witness, Genesis and Brawn, Woe Strider, Mausoleum Secrets, Songs of the Damned, just more cards that do stuff in the graveyard or care about the graveyard to go with the mill plan. Living Death so good. Necrogoyf might work. Egon, God of Death Flip.
also whats the all the dumb discard in the maybeboard lmaoo
