If you are looking for equal endgames, pick almost any game Carlsen has played in the last few years against Anand, Aronian, or Kramnik and set up the position around move 25. Then try to come up with some plans and ideas on how to play it.
After spending half an hour on your own, try those ideas against your favorite silicon monster. Keep extensive notes.
When you're done with all that, compare what you've found with what the great players actually did. Go back and try again against your silicon friend.
You will get better in a hurry if you're willing to do the work.
Do you recommend any specific Carlsen game that might be similar to the rook position that I posted?
When you're down to 12 total pieces or less, just look really carefully for forcing threats like captures and checks as well as tactical themes like pin, fork, overload, removing the defender, decoy, etc. on every single move.
Usually you won't have to look any further than 2 or 3 moves and you can at the very least "hold" these equalish endgames against anyone lower than master.
