Ok, I have a few suggestions for you. I also run Marchesa but it's more of an oppresive etb/death trigger abuse with a side of aggro.
First suggestion isn't really a suggestion lol. Spark Double copies Marchesa for double Dethrone, the copies protect one another, and the copy enters already protected. Get it in here asap... thank me later. Herald of Secret Streams falls into this category of 'not a suggestion' too lol.
Boardwipes: 3 opponents can play stuff faster than you can steal it sometimes. Blasphemous Act , Last One Standing , and Jokulhaups are really good budget friendly options. Fire Covenant is better in competitive metas with lots of small utilty creatures.
Sac Outlets: Goblin Bombardment is hard for some colors to get rid of. Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Falkenrath Aristocrat both have haste so they get an immediate counter and they protect themselves.
I'm sure there's several other options I'm missing... feel free to check out my list for ideas. 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

I've found 3-mana mana-rocks to be largely inferior to two-mana mana-rocks. I think you should run things like Orzhov Signet and Rakdos Signet over their respective lockets. Also, Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Hierarchy and Talisman of Conviction . Other two-mana rocks to consider: Arcane Signet , Fellwar Stone , Thought Vessel , Prismatic Lens , Mind Stone ... these'll help you produce mana while allowing you to run fewer lands; I try not to go above 33 in most EDH decks.
Card-draw is essential to a good deck. Consider Painful Truths , Phyrexian Arena , Mentor of the Meek , Faithless Looting , Light Up the Stage , Commune with Lava ... anything that can get you more ammo.
You're in the colors to run some pretty powerful hate-cards. Consider some of the following: Aven Mindcensor , Eidolon of the Great Revel , Grafdigger's Cage , Harsh Mentor , Suppression Field (if you're really ballsy), Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Cataclysm ...
I gotta go to class. Good luck.

Yo m_to_the_three, did a lot of heavy testing tonight with Syr Gwyn. I'm going to add in a lot more instants and interaction as it didn't do enough. But yes Fire Covenant is going in as well as a lot of removal and tech cards. Essentially it's going to be a sunforger deck with a light Knight tribal theme, but going to revamp it over the weekend.
In this type of build I would rather not use Cataclysm unless I use it in conjunction with other cards like Faith's Reward or such cards, but until than the biggest issue I had so far is not having enough answers to do things.

Hey I love the idea of using not so popular commanders and trying to make them good. Having a boardwipe can be very useful to make it easier to get clean hits with your knights. You should try the best boardwipe in the game. Fire Covenant is insanely powerful, you do use a lot of life but typically you put everybody so behind that you win the game. I use it in my Vaevictis Asmadi(the OG legend version) deck, typically pay between 20 to 30 life and win after i cast. Also its an instant speed making it a really powerful boardwipe for only 3 mana. Cataclysm is also very nice, you dont really need to worry about mana that much with your commander and a lot of your cards being colorless, so it wont hurt you as badly. You keep your commander or best creature plus your best equipment and just beat everybody to death.

This is very awesome, but I worry about being overloaded with products, that WotC may be focusing on quantity rather than quality; however, I shall make an effort to remain optimistic about it.
On a more positive note, I am very pleased to learn that there shall be a great number of reprints, since there are many cards that I feel need to be reprinted, and my most desired reprints are Book of Rass , Akroma's Memorial , Vedalken Orrery , Rhystic Study , and Reflecting Pool , but some other reprints that would be nice are Dromar, the Banisher , Undermine , Recoil , Fire Covenant , Fungal Shambler , and Tsabo Tavoc . I am certain that I shall remember more cards as time passes, so I shall mention them, here.
Also, is that a new incarnation of Baron Sengir? Yes, finally! I am certain that many long-time players have been waiting for years for this, and I know that I am one of those players; I have very high expectations for that card, since a character of his iconic status deserves nothing less than the best.
Will Commander Collection replace Signature Spellbook? I certainly hope not, since only two of those have been released thus far, and there are still many more characters who have not yet received their own.
