Hi MTGPower314, thanks for stopping by + all of the suggestions. Here's my thoughts on all those cards:

I love absolutely everything about this deck. Don't change a thing ;)
Well, except that I would love to see Squee, the Immortal in there, and Furious Assault in addition to the Impact Tremors you already have, because you have no enchantment fetch, and that's a good effect.
Other cards possibly overlooked that are worth looking at:
Though I could never conceive of a list of cards you could remove to fit all of that in.
Anyway, I started this giant comment by saying you shouldn't ever change a thing. I mean that. The deck looks amazing as is. These suggestions are just food for thought.

So, nearly a week since I last updated. I feel like enough of the substitutions have aggregated to warrant a new commentary.
First up, more Haste providers. Ogre Battledriver and In the Web of War now join the ranks of the already present Temur Ascendancy and Cavalier of Flame. Upping the chances of Haste feels like the right call to help close out games. After playing even just one Windfall-like card, you'll suddenly have up to 21 new snake friends to play with and Haste makes them immediately viable beyond ETB and Sacrifice effects. Whether it be for the swing or making mad Mana with Cryptolith Rite, it'll be sure to make an impression (especially if you keep your Haste a secret until the turn of).
Next a few odds and ends. Following my own advice, I ended up dropping Expropriate and Tooth and Nail, alongside others whose names are already forgotten. In exchange, a couple of new faces: Ohran Frostfang, Teferi's Puzzle Box, Steely Resolve, and Riptide Shapeshifter. Plus Sylvan Library for funsies, since I remembered that I already own a copy!
You could say that the Riptide Shapeshifter is my budget option replacing Tooth and Nail. On the plus side, I like that you can activate its ability at any time, which can make for a neat Combat Trick if you choose "Beast". "God" is also a good choice, as Purphoros, God of the Forge and The Locust God both really hum in this deck.
Thanks for reading this far, by the way! There hasn't been much outside interaction to date (it feels like I'm talking to the wind). But maybe I'm wrong, since there's no way of knowing how many folks take the time to navigate my admittedly chonky stream of consciousness.

Board wipes that seem "on theme" and white "ramp" to consider. Kaya's Wrath Fumigate Retaliate Austere Command Decree of Pain Martial Coup Merciless Eviction Descent of Dragons Angel of the Dire Hour Magister of Worth Sunblast Angel Boreas Charger Oreskos Explorer Surveyor's Scope Solemn Simulacrum Sword of the Animist Verge Rangers Smothering Tithe Sword of Feast and Famine Dowsing Dagger Flip
Queen Marchesa doesn't have a clear single way to build so you have lots of options. However, I feel like said you want to play her like the Kween she is and create a royal court full of politicin' and group interaction to make all the boys whine. I don't think you want to discourgage people from taking the monarch from you, more encourage them to swing others IE: NO Ghostly Prisons, YES Teysa effects. Punish the ones who swing you only after the fact and reward the ones who swing others. There is a lot listed!
You will also want to get retake the throne each turn and lets face it, the Assasin's won't always get through Dauthi Embrace Dauthi Trapper Nether Shadow Nether Traitor Soltari Visionary Changeling Outcast Tormented Soul Break Through the Line Ferropede Gingerbrute Key to the City Whispersilk Cloak Trailblazer's Boots Zhang He, Wei General Yellow Scarves Cavalry Wei Night Raiders Wei Scout Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed Lu Bu, Master-at-Arms Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior Shadow Alley Denizen
Finally here are some other fun interactions befitting the royal court. Crown of Doom Kor Haven Cathars' Crusade Electropotence + Pandemonium (Nasty with deathtouch) Field of the Dead Mentor of the Meek In the Web of War Mace of the Valiant Ogre Battledriver Orc Sureshot Mathas, Fiend Seeker Master of Cruelties Anya, Merciless Angel Tree of Perdition Alesha, Who Smiles at Death Ashling, the Extinguisher Azra Oddsmaker Aurification Bloodforged Battle-Axe Contested War Zone Thaumatic Compass Flip Dread Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip Iroas, God of Victory Aurelia, the Warleader Gisela, Blade of Goldnight Five-Alarm Fire Hellrider Hixus, Prison Warden Larceny Necropolis Regent No Mercy Phage the Untouchable Quietus Spike Skeleton Key Throat Slitter Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor Vraska, Scheming Gorgon Scourge of the Throne Akroan Horse Captive Audience Goblin Spymaster Forbidden Orchard Clackbridge Troll Hunted Dragon Hunted Lammasu Hunted Horror

Very cool concept! Any deck that can make use of a card like Death Match is super rad in my book. What do you think of these? Seize the Day , Hazoret's Favor , In the Web of War , Rage Reflection , Gratuitous Violence , Inquisitor's Flail , Spreading Plague , Revel in Riches , Black Market
