Saheeli, the Gifted and Chasm Skulker seem like decent adds here.

I don't want to seem overly critical but you really need to lower the avg. cmc of your creatures by a LOT. You're currently at 4.62 avg. cmc on your creatures which is astronomically high.

You have a total of 5 creatures that cost or less and by comparison you have 17 creatures that cost to mana. This will result in VERY clunky opening hands where you consistently aren't doing anything for the first several turns and you'll hardly ever reach that sweet spot where you're able to chain multiple spells on the same turn.

Here's a list of all the and under creatures in my Marchesa list and her maybeboard that are $5 or less. Baleful Strix, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Grim Haruspex, Legion Loyalist, Liliana's Standard Bearer, Midnight Reaper, Oona's Blackguard, Sage of Fables, Vigean Graftmage, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Burglar Rat, Chasm Skulker, Fulminator Mage, and Judith, the Scourge Diva. I would cut from the top of your curve and work you way down.

Like I said, just trying to help. Feel free to check out my list for inspiration, it's one of the top rated Marchesa lists on this site and there's also a decent sized maybeboard and over 90 comments to sift through for more ideas.

SQUID-MAGIC on I Fought The Claw And The Claw Won

Wow, great deck! Nice, it's on a decent budget. A card that would fit in the deck is Feed the Pack. If you have a creature with a death trigger, like Chasm Skulker or Hangarback Walker, it works incredibly well.

     nothingstar: Great suggestions! I knew I was missing one of the red looting spells, and it was Wild Guess; Thank you! Been considering taking Chasm Skulker from my Animar deck, and I have a Reforge the Soul I was thinking about taking from my Kalemne deck.

     Magus of the Jar and Memory Jar will definitely make it to the final product as well. Again, great suggestions, thank you. =)

A few suggestions -- Wild Guess, Chasm Skulker, Magus of the Jar and, depending on your budget, Reforge the Soul and Memory Jar.

I do like the cycling sub-theme as a way to get more draws, I might have to consider it for my own wheely deck.
