I'm not sure which format this is meant for, but it clearly isn't Standard. As the the legality checker will tell you, all but 3 non-basic land cards are not legal in Standard. Many cards in the deck are not even Legacy legal (Sol Ring, Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor) and the variance in power level is off the charts (Sol Ring is almost as good as Black Lotus or a Mox, while I'm afraid the same can't be said for Fleshwrither). All the one-ofs suggest that the deck might be Singleton, which isn't listed as a format on Tappedout. Finally, the sideboard is 20 cards, and I know of no format that allows more than 15.
Also, there are some inconsistencies that I can't figure out. For example, I don't know how you expect to cast Zur with only two nonblue sources in your deck, but I can tell you it will be very difficult. In addition, some cards simply don't make sense (I'm not sure what you're Flashing in or why, and I don't know what you expect to steal with Aura Thief). In addition, while the majority of the combos you talked about work, I have no idea how Entomb + Fleshwrither gives you Academy Rector.
All in all, the only recommendation I can give for sure is to add more colors to your mana base. If you can give the format you play this in, and possibly explain a few more tech-y cards, I could probably give more feedback. I hope that the deck is working for you though.

Even though he is a little bit mana expensive to use, i like Fleshwrither. He can get you some good creatures like the oracle, clever imposter, venser or solemn simulacrum. But I don't know how important these creatures are in your deck.
What about Sire of Stagnation? It is a card I like to put in many decks - if possible.

I'll try to squeeze in Miren, I like sac outlets and emergency lifegain here. I'll look at my lands and see if I can figure out a cut.
As far as Mer-Ek goes, he's a good card but he doesn't make the cut as a 4 drop, I'm already very flooded at 4 drops (20 lol) including Marchesa.
Also, this is an aggro deck first and foremost but with a definite emphasis on combo as an alternate way to win. Due to the aggro nature of the deck, I try to keep the avg cmc of the deck low and your combo costs a lot.
I am however considering dropping a few cards to make room to test suggestions you guys have made. I'm considering dropping:
Razaketh, the Foulblooded - cute but not needed, also my highest cmc card by far.
Sidisi, Undead Vizier - exploit can be very awkward when Marchesa brings her back.
Fleshwrither - I love this card, but it's activation cost is prohibitive. It does amazing things or sits in my hand doing nothing. This is the card I'm most tentative to cut.
Thoughts on these cuts or any other suggestions? I know Kokusho has been suggested but he's part of my 'plan b' of win without combat or worrying about the throne.
Thinking I'll replace 1 cut with Vigean Graftmage. Any suggestions to test in the other 1-2 possible slots anyone?

Well, with Spike Feeder maindeck, I think you're probably going to be good against Burn.
I'm not sure what to do against Death's Shadow. Maybe if you get a Fleshwrither in your graveyard, the ooze can fetch a Guardian of the Guildpact, and that'll be nearly impossible for them to deal with? Or a Molten-Tail Masticore? I really don't know what your deck can do about it.

Had to be brief before, please allow me to expand. I understand it's a more casual list. I understand you run Animar or Narset when you want to be cruel to others at the table, says it right there in your concise deck description. That's why I recommended Graft (It's not the most OP mechanic for Marchesa, but looks like it would synergize well). Just trying to give "feedback or ideas" as solicited. I really am sorry about the contextual typo, on my part it's unfortunate. As I said, I really like your setup. You have a well tuned and reliable deck list with several cards I'm looking to integrate into my playlists because I like what you're going that much. I plan to cite you if that's alright on my deck upgrades (Dimir House Guard, Fleshwrither and Jokulhaups) once incorporated into my Marchesa deck. Job well done.

I really like your set up. I may have to get myself a Dimir House Guard, Fleshwrither and Jokulhaups. I have a slightly different take on it: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/big-turns-engine/ ... Anywho, Living Death... That's a tough one. You may have to much life gain to ensure you keep getting your dethrone triggers. My knee-jerk response is Kokusho, the Evening Star. It contributes straight damage to all players and gains you life, sweet. However it doesn't have a lot to contribute to swinging... You have a good lineup for turning things sideways and loading up +1/+1 counters (Marton Stromgald, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Ogre Battledriver, and Urabrask the Hidden). Then creatures with those counters matter (Herald of Secret Streams and Oona's Blackguard). It's not that Kokusho isn't good in your lineup. Without Graft or something to help you throw silly amounts of counters on it without Dethrone, you need to swing and Kokusho doesn't do that for you. I can hear you already: "What about Unspeakable Symbol?" The three card combo is nice, but that's what I would do.
