If you're having problems finding answers then don't cut Gamble :) It's one of red best cards to actually find an answer by tutoring for it. Dualcaster Mage , Reverberate and Reiterate are helpful in multiplayer Commander because they can copy an opponents tutor.
Tectonic Reformation is an underrated red card for draw. One thing mono red has a lot of are Mountains and getting flooded happens. Reformation turns extra Mountains into draws. Repeatable cycling of lands for each is very good. I also suggest adding all the low mana cost draw in red: Faithless Looting , Light Up the Stage , Thrill of Possibility , Tormenting Voice , Wild Guess .
This draw/discard can help to find answers and be enablers for Feldon of the Third Path who can be good repeatable value in red especially with creatures such as Magus of the Wheel , Solemn Simulacrum . Torbran, Thane of Red Fell makes each red source do more damage which equals more life loss which makes more mana with Neheb. Comet Storm and Chaos Warp are pretty much a staple cards for mono red.

This is what I think that you can do:
For Big Game Hunter you can cut Terminate . The reason to do this is that you can rehuse the Hunter with Chainer, and Terminate is only an instant. And don't cut Bedevil or Chaos Warp because them can also kill other type of permanents.
I hope this helped you.

So I am working on some changes to my Neheb deck to make it just a little more efficient. I've had pretty good games with it so far, but I've had some issues where I will dig like 5 plus cards deep and still not get an answer to situations that I need solved.
Stuff I am trying to put into the deck is Helkite charger and Comet Storm . Knowing I also need to pick up a Chaos Warp for the deck. I am up for any suggestions that anyone has and appreciate the help.

Mana Leak is also a weaker counterspell in EDH (it's pretty decent in 60-card formats). I would only recommend it in very counterspell-heavy decks. If the goal is protecting against removal/boardwipes use Swan Song or Negate . Otherwise, use Counterspell , Arcane Denial , or any of the other good cards that counter anything.
As for Rift Bolt and Lightning Bolt , if they're for removal I would highly recommend something more reliable like Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , Reality Shift , Aftershock , or Fissure . Comet Storm or Rolling Thunder work well with Saheeli too. If they're for going upstairs I'd again recommend things like Comet Storm to have a bigger impact and even end the game outright.
Without counterspelling them, the only way in to handle enchantments is Chaos Warp . I insist you run it. There are a few colorless ways to deal, like Scour from Existence , Unstable Obelisk , and Spine of Ish Sah . The latter two are great with recursion.
Personally, I always run two boardwipes minimum and I try to squeeze more in when possible. You already have the best in Cyclonic Rift, but another could save your bacon (you don't have tutors to find it, nor would I necessarily recommend running any). Even decks that go wide, like ours, need reset buttons in emergencies. Blasphemous Act is the gold standard, but Ixidron , Earthquake , Wash Out , and Coastal Breach are good too.

Ok, I've ran Marchesa for several years now albeit not theft focused. First thing is work on lowering your avg. cmc to 3.5 or less (preferably 3.3ish).
Spark Double copying Marchesa for double dethrone, the two copies protect one another, and the copy enters immediately protecting itself.
Sage of Fables / Metallic Mimic - Immediately protects Marchesa and they also allow you to abuse ETB/Death triggers on everyone's turn instead of once per round. I.e. Sower of Temptation , Vindictive Lich , etc.
Skullclamp is excellent here with all the sacrificing going on.
I'll try to suggest cuts if I get a minute but I'd skim off the top (Primordials etc). Feel free to check out my list for inspiration, it's one of the top rated Marchesa lists on this site. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

For whatever reason the sections in your comment refuse to expand, no matter which computer/browser I'm using. At the very least I can see the cards you suggested including.
I'm still not a fan of Confusion in the Ranks , however. This deck is so meticulous about achieving a consistent board state via draw and tutors, I wouldn't want to risk an opponent snatching something vital that I spent resources obtaining. Also, at some point I actually DID run Sunbird's Invocation , but that's really only so effective in a deck with low average CMC. It's better in big mana decks imho.
Also, the decision to make the deck entirely permanents was deliberate. I tend to run low instant/sorcery counts in a lot of my decks anyway, but here I opted for MAXIMUM DURDLE. Still, I listed some of the ones I'd otherwise include in the Maybeboard, because I know my peculiarities aren't universal and if someone else were to build a similar Norin, they'd likely include things like Chaos Warp , Scrap Mastery , etc.
I also have a bit of an OCD when it comes to cards with old-school borders/backgrounds. Simply put, I can't play them. It wigs me out. I know it's dumb and irrational, and gimps me from using some really powerful old cards in my deckbuilding; but it's also forced me to get creative in finding ways to achieve similar effects using more modern cards (even if they're often slightly less cost-efficient).

Okay. I'm the Reddit dude. Sorry for the wait. Life interfered and I didn’t have a great opportunity to write this, so my b. Here's what I'd try messing around with. I'll do my best to keep suggestions budget
Removal Naya Charm is a fog, removal spell, mass unblockablility, and a Regrowth all at once. Worth it. Generous Gift and Beast Within are also solid open-ended removal spells. Oblation , Chaos Warp , and Swords to Plowshares should do the rest
Draw Add Beast Whisperer , Guardian Project , and some other spells that draw off creatures. Your deck has so many creatures - might as well turn them into cantrips. Primordial Sage and Lifecrafter's Bestiary also come to mind. Maybe a Vivien Reid as removal and draw all in one, if you feel like splurging a bit?
Boardwipes, removal, ramp, draw - That’s the general stuff that each deck needs simply to function
Here’s some more niche stuff I think your deck could use
Protection Kindred Boon and Eight-and-a-Half-Tails are good at protecting your creatures, and what makes them better is that the're activated abilities - to say, your werewolves won't flip but you’ll get to spend your mana
The Other Stuff I really like Cult of the Waxing Moon , Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves , Bow of Nylea , Mastery of the Unseen and Boros Charm . Bow synergises particularly well with your commander, making blocking a lose-lose situation. Mastery of the Unseen is a solid mana sink, so you’ll have something to do on the turns where you don’t want to flip your wolves. Boros Charm ’s just insanely more versatile than it appears
Ok. This comment’s long enough as is, so I’ll take my leave. If you want a hand making cuts, though, feel free to comment and I’ll try to get back to you quicker this time :)

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. I don't have any experience with Licia, never played the card, but I do have experience with Mardu and life gaining/aristocrat strategies with Alesha.
Cards to consider to upgrade your deck are tutors and an aristocrat combo. Cards within the budget to consider adding:
- Demonic Tutor
- Diabolic Intent
- Enlightened Tutor
- Blood Artist : combo piece, triggers when any creature dies including your opponents creatures.
- Animate Dead : combo piece, two drop reanimation of your own creature or an opponents.
- Leonin Relic-Warder : combo piece.
- Buried Alive : combo enabler, tutor for both Warder and Razaketh putting them into your graveyard.
- Entomb : combo enabler, tutor for Warder and put it into your graveyard.
- Razaketh, the Foulblooded : combo piece, repeatable tutor.
- Arcane Signet
- Mother of Runes : repeatable protection from targeted removal and in combat for Licia, protection of the color of the blocking creature makes it so it can't block Licia.
- Blind Obedience : repeatable tap of potential blockers your opponents play making it easier for Licia to attack. Extort is a way to gain life and in multiplayer Commander you pay one mana to gain 3 life if you have three opponents.
- Authority of the Consuls
- Reanimate : one drop reanimation, use life to reanimate your creature or opponents.
- Chaos Warp
- Fetid Heath
- Rugged Prairie
- Graven Cairns
The most important cards to consider adding for upgrades are tutors. If you can afford them they're some of the best investments you can make in Commander because they can be played in all decks you make no matter the strategy. When playing combos then tutors are very helpful to find the combo pieces or Necropotence . Tutors can replace high mana cost cards, redundancy or reduce the amount of win conditions. Which in return creates smoother gameplay, reducing the avg. CMC of your deck, speeding up your deck.
Aristocrat strategies can strengthen your deck and give you another avenue to victory using life without needing Licia. Aristocrats are good for gaining life as well as making your opponents lose life which can be a win condition. A combo for Mardu aristocrats is called Razacats. It's Leonin Relic-Warder and Animate Dead with Razaketh, the Foulblooded , but you don't even need Razaketh. He's played with reanimation to tutor for Warder/Animate. Create the loop and then using Warder as repeatable sac to tutor for and assemble other combos. Razaketh's ability to tutor is powerful when you have a lot of life to use.
The two card Leonin Relic-Warder / Animate Dead combo are the cards to consider adding because it creates an infinite dying or creature ETB loop of Warder. If before you create the loop have on the battlefield an aristocrat such as Blood Artist then this combo kills all your opponents and you gain infinite life. The combo has interaction with the overall life gaining strategy. It can be used with Soul Warden / Soul's Attendant . One of them has to be on the battlefield before you create the loop to gain infinite life because Warder is repeatedly ETB and each time you gain 1 life.
When gaining infinite life you can add other cards to win such as Aetherflux Reservoir , Cliffhaven Vampire , Sanguine Bond . Aetherflux is the best option because you can cast it after you have made infinite life and broken the loop to use all the life you gained to kill each opponent. Declare you're gaining infinite life with the combo then break the loop then cast Reservior. Cliffhaven or Bond would have to be along with one of Warden or Attendant on the battlefield before you created the loop.
Sun Titan can reanimate Animate Dead which can be helpful to keep creating the loop as long as Warder is in your graveyard. If you are interested in learning more about this combo then I will explain it further.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Beacon of Immortality
- Storm Herd
- Approach of the Second Sun
- True Conviction
- Minion of the Wastes
- Serra Avatar
- Sorin, Grim Nemesis
- Hide / Seek
- Nyx-Fleece Ram
- Sun Droplet
- Tainted Sigil
- Debt to the Deathless
- Angel of Vitality
- Diabolic Tutor
- 1x Swamp
- 1x Plains
- Tainted Field
The majority of these suggested cuts are high mana cost cards. This is to reduce the high avg. CMC that's 3.7. To improve your deck cut some these high mana cost cards and replace them with low mana cost tutors which can search for and get the better cards into your hand. Good luck with your deck.
