Looking good so far I'll just add a few notes if thats ok. Probably replace one of those Acquire with Bribery. Coalition Relic is strictly better than Obelisk of Grixis. While Dragon Blood isn't the worst I think Unspeakable Symbol is most likely better (6 mana for the first +1 counter is rough) especially since you need kinda low life to trigger dethrone. Feast on the Fallen is a card that seems good but that I don't super like since to get max value out of it relies on your opponents attacking each other instead of you. Finally Fork or Twincast are always better than Doublecast.
I did not know this until today, not only does Marchesa's ability effect herself but it still triggers if she herself isn't on the battlefield so wrath effects like Damnation,Toxic Deluge and Blasphemous Act will basically only effect your opponents.
Soul Channeling is some sweet old school tech but I'd rather get haste so you can get those counters on asap since once they're on your team is safe, Fervor and Lightning Greaves are classics, Bloodsworn Steward, Urabrask the Hidden, and Dragonlord Kolaghan are also fair options.
On the creature front I won't say too much more other than maybe cosider a few cards that just get +1/+1 counters in other ways like Scourge of the Throne, Markov Blademaster, and Taurean Mauler. Although none of those are compulsory inclusions by any means.
ps. you might like Wild Ricochet

Don't feel obligated to respond, this is kind of unreasonable and unrelated.
Do you believe that this deck can work on a hardcore budget?(under $100) I initially thought that most of its 'core' cards aren't super expensive, and i was interested in building this. after looking at the more costly cards, it looks like most of the extra money is in tutors and the manabase - do you think it can be done? or does the combo need those cheap cards so badly? This is what I have so far:
Yawgmoth's Will -> Recoup --- Fork -> Mana Geyser --- Entomb -> Demonic Collusion --- Sensei's Divining Top -> Crystal Ball This one is sketchy --- Demonic Tutor -> Tainted Pact --- Vampiric Tutor -> Diabolic Tutor --- Serra Ascendant -> Sphinx-Bone Wand --- Phyrexian Arena -> Ambition's Cost ---- Austere Command -> Planar Cleansing --- Necropotence -> Painful Truths --- Cloud Key -> primal amulet --- Lotus Petal -> Pentad Prism --- Tithe -> Terrarion --- Abeyance -> Niveous Wisps ---

hoyanader Thanks for the upvote and the kind words man.
Amazingly, especially given how much scrilla I've already dropped on this deck, it IS possible to upgrade:

Quick update from the weekend. I am still punishing myself by going against the Jhoira Paradox Storm and Kambal Lifegain Control.
First game I lost to Jhoira going off on turn two with a pile of Rocks and a Paradox Engine. I had only played a tapped Godless Shrine by that time. She shrugged and we shuffled up and played again. Not sure what to say.
Second game, Jhoira dropped an Ancient Tomb, an Island, and 6 Rocks on turn 2. I figured I needed to be super aggressive, and I had a fantastic hand for not losing turn 2 this time. I played Hide // Seek -> Seek, planning to exile the Paradox Engine. Jhoira Pact of Negationed it. Crap. At least I sort of Time Walked her. I ramped through turn 4 and held a Word of Seizing as Kambal played his commander and Path to Exiled Jhoira for another Time Walk. Finally Jhoira plays a Tezzeret the Seeker and upticks it to 5. I figured it was a perfect time. I wait for my turn, then Word of Seizing the Tezzeret the Seeker , -X for 5 to send it to the graveyard, delaying the tutor for Paradox Engine and I tutor up my Sunforger. Jhoira durdles for a turn, Kambal beats on her for every artifact that she plays, and holds up mana for responses. I play Queen Marchesa, and hold mana up for a Monarch top decked Anguished Unmaking and a Sunforger response. At this point, I can't remember the details, but Kambal seems to control the board, keeping Jhoira in check with single target removal until she starts taking an uncomfortable amount of damage to Kambal tax and a couple of Sunforger equipped Queen Marchesa attacks. Kambal takes her out with an Exsanguinate she can't respond to, and now it is me and Kambal. I pillow in, play an Erebos, God of the Dead, then Kambal plays a series of spells and hits some Extort triggers, and eventually I end up Forking a Debt to the Deathless played against me while holding a Mana Tithe, Reverberate, and Teferi's Protection in hand.
Jhoira Paradox Storm is a beast. If there are more competitive decks than her, I am not sure I want to play them. Still, Jhoira Paradox Storm isn't a guaranteed loss for Queen Marchesa, it is just probably a loss.

Hey, one thing I noticed while testing my Lightning Dragon Form deck is that cards like Reverberate, Reiterate, Dual Casting, Wild Ricochet, Fork, and others can actually put a copy of the Epic cards on the stack if you copy them. It is a lot more mana, but could be worth looking into.

other than that, just as many tutors as you can, more token spawning, perhaps protection like Asceticism?
other than that,you need to make up for the speed that the expensive cards provide so definitely run 4-10 more lands than me depending on your curve, and you could run a lot more ramp like Cultivate Farseek Explosive Vegetation, more damage like Banefire Goblin War Strike Kodama's Reach Collective Voyage Hour of Promise

Geo963, what are the staple counters/black spells for cedh? this deck was originally casual and then turned into an investment and primer. and ive tuned it quite well, but i probably could trim for more staple cedh cards
i want to continue with testing my Chains of Mephistopheles + Anvil of Bogardan + Necropotence combo for a while, but it usually seems to be too much setup and chains can totally screw you when you cast it wrong, totally screws up the whole megrim/Waste Not+ Windfall + nekusar spike damage
im also debating running the best of the 2 mana Fork spells for wheels, but in cedh i think fork is mostly just cute

I am looking to trade my Liliana of the Veil for, or towards, something from my list, or possible multiple for the smaller ones. I understand that they are Reserved list so I am willing to negotiate and adjust values accordingly.
There are others, but these are the highlights of what I would want most. If anyone is interested, please let me know.
