Magus of the Abyss / Defiler of Souls / Reaper from the Abyss and the under-used Archfiend of Depravity will do pretty well at keeping folks down

You can, if you like, create custom sort categories by adding a # in your edit list (eg. "1x City of Brass #Land") and then setting >Edit >Default category >Custom

Don't forget Thraximundar and Warstorm Surge ...

Here are some houses:

Bloodtracker ... must have imo

Herald of Secret Streams ... where'd this go?

Dack's Duplicate ... +1/+1 clone

Spark Double ... +1/+1 clone

Viscera Seer ... tier 1 version of Carrion Feeder

Mulldrifter ... if is too much then play this

Treasonous Ogre ... seems good

Harvester of Souls ... + Damnation ?

Reef Worm ... endless worms

Spawning Pit ... you can sacrifice the Spawn tokens to recoup 1/2 the value if they're wiped

Drana, Liberator of Malakir ... yes... anything that lets you ignore the throne is amazing

Yahenni, Undying Partisan ... it never leaves the board so expect 10+/10+

Toothy, Imaginary Friend ... yes

Midnight Reaper ... yes

Burnished Hart ... do not underestimate this

Goblin Bombardment ... yes

You could also try playing some big beefs that are wipe oriented like...

Ogre Slumlord

Overseer of the Damned

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled

Revel in Riches

If you count Merciless Executioner , Innocent Blood , etc, with wipes like Damnation , etc, you have 12 wipes and 5 removal... which is probably too much control.

To play aggressively, Marchesa needs evasive creatures with double strike ...or maybe even...

Core Prowler ... maybe

Flesh-Eater Imp ... I have one, you should try it out

Grafted Exoskeleton ... sacrifice might be nice

Viral Drake ... proliferating your +1/+1 counters would be pretty sweet

...Keep in mind Infect replaces damage so either make it a core theme or only play the ones that can get to 10 Infect quickly.

Demons would also be pretty sweet:

Archfiend of Depravity ... wipe

Defiler of Souls ... make them sacrifice

Demon of Wailing Agonies ... make them sacrifice

Havoc Demon ... wipe

Indulgent Tormentor ... another Bloodgift Demon

Kothophed, Soul Hoarder ... draw to get off the throne?

Krav, the Unredeemed ... seems good

Lord of the Void ... betrayal

Malfegor ... wipe?

Rakdos, the Showstopper ... wipe

Ravenous Demon  Flip... sacrifice Marchesa or take the 9 to get off the throne?

Reaper from the Abyss ... removal

Rune-Scarred Demon ... tutor

Silent-Blade Oni ... betrayal

Liliana's Contract ... hilarous

this looks cruel and unusual! or rather, just usual for you - that's meant as a compliment, if you couldn't tell ;) I was gonna suggest Defiler of Souls - as I think he's the perfect rakdos demon - but he doesn't look to fit in nicely with your other demons. stay frosty, my man!

Hunter of Eyeblights and Humble Defector seem very odd for a stax/control deck. Defiler of Souls is cute, but I think it's too much mana for its effect (given that you have a decent number of mono-colored creatures) - I'd almost rather run something like Reaper from the Abyss (more versatile and gives you the choice) or Sheoldred, Whispering One. Tsabo Tavoc is a LOT of mana, and I'd consider removing her.

I'd find space for Anguished Unmaking - while you should play both, probably, it's generally better than Chaos Warp. Beyond that, Null Rod, Armageddon, Rule of Law, and other common stax pieces are what I would consider a "must". Also, no Archfiend of Depravity? It's a good way to thin out large hordes.

...also, I'd put more basics in the deck, and work on making more of the landbase come in untapped. You need to drop your stax/control pieces before opponents drop major answers onto the field.

Huh, the thread glitched. Well here's what it was:

Right now, I'm building a Modern Grixis deck centered around Bolas but I'm trying to keep the manabase budget while staying competitive. I'm willing to spend up to $50 outside of the cards I already have on the manabase itself. The deck itself has a lot of control aspects with a bit of beatdown, with either Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker or Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh being the primary win conditions and Blood Tyrant/Defiler of Souls being back up win conditions.

Right now, I have:

Any Number of Basics (Who Doesn't)

Blood Crypt 1x

Polluted Delta 1x

Watery Grave 2x

Drowned Catacomb 2x

Dragonskull Summit 2x

I will have Crypt of the Eternals 1x (pre-ordered, I liked the land; if it doesn't go in here I have another Grixis deck)

Sulfur Falls 1x

Crumbling Necropolis 3x

Spirebluff Canal 1x

Again, I want to keep the manabase under $50 outside of what I already have. What I listed above is what's available to help construct the manabase (without spending out of the $50). Thank you!

(30% black, 19% blue, 21% red, 30% colorless (not the Eldrazi kind) in the deck)

Deck is mostly multicolored, with the majority of spells being 2 mana but having several 1 mana spells and a lot of 3-5 mana spells. Only five 6+ mana spells.

Aiming to have 22 lands total.
