Wassup LordWaterbird, +1!
Something that has always helped me is adding custom tags to count draw and ramp, like so:
1x Yawgmoth, Thran Physician #Draw #Sacrifice #Removal
If you really want to cap Marchesa's power level at 7/8 I think you'd have to gut many of the fun cards and play a really consistent, conservative midrange style with lots of interaction or MLD to really be an 8.
That'd be pretty spikey, but here are a few alternative (6-7/10) ideas:
Lean into aggro/midrange... BBB, BB, UU, etc, are really going to slow you down. I would only run cards with those costs that can compare to Necropotence , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , etc. Eg. Grave Pact is good, but Plaguecrafter does more (...also Merciless Executioner / Fleshbag Marauder ). If you're trying to wipe the board, I'd go for Massacre Girl / Profaner of the Dead , etc.
Fire Covenant ... awesome card. Dethrone is tricky and so you need to be able to consistently manipulate life.
Flayer of the Hatebound ... this card is MVP in Marchesa. Add this.

Aye this is a solid meren deck. here is mine to help ya with some ideas https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/graveyard-queen-meren-of-clan-nel-toth/
So I've been playing meren for almost 5 years now so I got some fun ideas to help ya out. So first i recommend some more sac outlets. Building your exp counters can be very useful and a lot of sac outlets can get you a lot of nice stuff. Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder are solid 1 drop sac outlets. Evolutionary Leap is a decent 2 drop sac outlet that lets you draw cards. Sadistic Hypnotist is expensive mana wise but is a nice way to hurt your opponents.
some of the best creatures for meren are creatures that want to die. Mindslicer is an amazing one because it puts everybody back except for you. you dont care if your hand gets discarded because you can use them still. Plaguecrafter , Fleshbag Marauder , and Merciless Executioner is really good trio. I like to use only 2 of them. Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a really good one as well because its a reusable tutor. You make it kill itself and just keep bringing it back to just get the best cards in your deck to help ya win.
Solid etb triggers are also really useful. Terastodon is one of my favorite etb because if you fine tune the deck you can bring a terastodon around turn 3 to turn 5 and just make a person concede. its a very brutal etb trigger. Fierce Empath and Woodland Bellower are also really nice because they can tutor for each other or tutor for some of your best creatures.
If ya got any questions about certain suggestions or about why I use certain cards or why I dont use certain cards feel free to ask. I am always down to help fellow meren decks out.

so here is my meren deck of almost 5 years. it isnt budget anymore however there are some budget cards in there for ya to consider and it can help ya figure out how ya want to build the deck or maybe a way for you not to want to build the deck. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/graveyard-queen-meren-of-clan-nel-toth/
So some basic tips is you want a lot of sac outlets, you want stuff that have good etb abilities or stuff that want to die, then any flavor for wins. For cuts i think a lot of your artifact creatures doesn't add much for your deck. There are a lot better cards that can help you with control.
Mana: Devoted Druid (2 dollar card) Can get you mana and exp counters
Graveyard: Having multiple ways to interact with graveyard is important because people will try to get rid of meren cause she is a gravy engine. A lot of the good ones are a bit expensive like Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip and Sheoldred, Whispering One so if you don't want to do expensive upgrades it is understandable.
Tutor: Fierce Empath has a solid etb trigger to get creatures for you. Woodland Bellower is another solid etb trigger to get creatures for you and interacts with fierce empath. Pattern of Rebirth is nice tutor because your creatures should be easy to kill and now you can get your best creature on the field right away.
Removal: Plaguecrafter , Merciless Executioner , and Fleshbag Marauder are solid creatures that can get rid of your opponents creatures and with meren you can bring them back to cause constant removal. I personally like using two of the three in my deck.
Boardwipes: Boardwipes are solid cause you benefit the most from them. Pox , Living Death , Pernicious Deed are all really wonderful ones that I use. If i have to push one I recommend Pernicious deed because that card scares a lot of people from doing stuff, and at worst you can always blow it up for 0 to get rid of tokens or 1 to get rid of a lot of mana rocks.

I think your deck could be improved if you included a few more value engines and/or tutors to get those engines. My problem with Mardu/Alesha generally is a lack of resources (cards and lands).
At a glance, the most important engine in your deck is Skullclamp . It's the card that makes your deck go off. Because of this, I think you should include things like Stoneforge Mystic , Steelshaper's Gift , Open the Armory , Enlightened Tutor , and Taj-Nar Swordsmith . Any of these would help to make your deck more consistent.

Cards like Notion Rain , Jarad's Orders , and Final Parting are great with Muldrotha, putting select cards in your hand and bin. Merciless Executioner and Fleshbag Marauder are solid removal options that don't bend your mana curve too bad. Carnage Altar is another card draw/sac outlet.

so a couple of suggestions, Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls are awesome in any kind of aristocrats deck where you plan to sac things. Plaguecrafter , Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner can really disrupt your opponents boardstate and hit targets that you might not otherwise beable to take out. while they are expensive both Smothering Tithe and Yahenni, Undying Partisan can help you steam roll and net value from a freshly board wiped state very quickly. I feel that you need to more clearly define your win conditions. While the sacrifice things to get value and utility while you protect yoiur boardstate isnt a bad overall gameplan as you get closer to edging out your opponents they will start to focus you. when that happens you need to beable to deal with them very quickly.
