The offering cycle that cmdr 14 gave us, Volcanic Offering , and Infernal Offering .

There's voting from conspiracy like Capital Punishment and Bite of the Black Rose

You clearly love politics and I have a few politics cards you might like. Bite of the Black Rose can poison your foes against one another. Cruel Entertainment will suddenly make allies out of people who have threatened to kill you. Tyrant's Choice gives them a choice between torture and death. You may also have use for Marchesa's Decree. If you have some time, would you review my Game of Marchesa deck, please?

I hope these suggestions have been of some use to you.

Bite of the Black Rose, Tyrant's Choice and Cruel Entertainment would be fun additions to this deck. Act of Treason and Press into Service may also be of use to you. I hope these suggestions have helped.

I like this Marchesa too though the Queen will always rule my heart. For this deck I recommend Cruel Entertainment, Bite of the Black Rose, and Order of Succession due to usefulness and flavour. I think you might also enjoy Plea for Power. I do not know what your budget is but I think you might want to invest in Scourge of the Throne. Skyline Despot could be a good prophetic card: it makes you monarch. Rewind and Unwind are worthy counter spells to consider.

I hope these suggestions have helped!

Really interesting and fun idea for multiplayer!

+1 from me!

One question though, what would you sideboard out for Bite of the Black Rose and Council's Judgment?

If you want to explore the political side of Marchesa more, you might consider adding some voting cards. Most are not very good, but there are some playable ones.

The best is probably Council's Judgment. Coercive Portal can be played in a situation where one player other than you is obviously far ahead of the others. Magister of Worth works the same way. Bite of the Black Rose is interesting, but I like it simply because it doesn't affect you at all.

I don't think it is actually that good of a win con but if you want to run a few I probably wouldn't run more than 2 and would probably start by trimming cards from your 6 drop slot (Council Guardian?). If you know games will go long so you can play lots of late drops then maybe 1 Bite of the Black Rose and one or two Tyrant's Choice?
