oh do not cut bottom end removal pieces you might have to cut some top end big things.
yes Rocks as in rakdos signed locket and mind stones and all the things bushido_man96 recommended. Although personally I would lean away from the myrs because they are more likly to get removed, the extra body does not help you much, they suffer from summoning sickness and Rakdos TSS might kill them when he lands.
Cut wise i would probably ditch:
Fate Unraveler Underworld Dreams these cards i would only really put in a deck where you are making them draw cards Nekusar, the Mindrazer for example. really the minor amounds of damage they do is not worth the card slot.
now onto the maybe cuts, this section I'm more hesitant but if you say they work they probably do:
Halo Hunter how often do you see angels?

I played around with a similar build in my play group and had some feedback from experience:
This list runs a lot of targeted creature removal on high-cmc bodies, but lacks responses to non-creature-heavy decks. I put in Mesmeric Fiend and Thought-Knot Seer as more general removal instead of Duplicant and Ravenous Chupacabra . I usually ended up tutoring and reoccurring Meteor Golem , so even Noxious Gearhulk seemed a bit redundant. I'm considering replacing it with Brain Maggot .
Vulturous Aven surprised me and actually performed really well. With a few recursions, this was reliable, under-the-radar card draw that also acted as a sac-outlet for Kokusho, the Evening Star when reanimated together. Considering adding Dusk Legion Zealot and/or Disciple of Bolas for more ETB card draw. I might also replace Phyrexian Arena for another ETB card draw creature or probably just Dark Confidant
I put in Viscera Seer for the reliable, cheap sac outlet on a body (with card filtering).
When playing opponents' cards from Gonti, they go straight to their graveyards, which often creates a powerful disincentive to using the main ability of the deck. For graveyard control, I'm looking for a place for Heap Doll and Withered Wretch . This lets me play opponents' cards with Gonti and then instantly exile them before someone drops something like Snapcaster Mage.
Adjusted the land base and ramp to include Fellwar Stone , Exotic Orchard , and Mox Opal to give more options for using activated abilities of opponents' permanents. Used Gonti to steal a Deadeye Navigator , which was hilarious and awesome.
Finally, the real fun/value/intrigue of Gonti from the games I played revolved around the mystery of what cards I'd exiled with Gonti, and less on what goodstuff creatures might be lurking in my graveyard. My opponents were always flipping through their decks when they tutored, looking to see if I snatched away key cards. The combo players at the table were especially anxious. I loved it. I put in Praetor's Grasp and Bitter Ordeal to play to this strength.
Great deck and definitely recommend anyone checking out this list give it a shot!

You honestly don't need any other wizard other than Marchesa for the Sage to be worth including. It's worth it just on its own as protection for Marchesa and it comes with the bonus of turning extra +1+1 counters on a creature into cards.
My build was heavily focused on sacrificing my own cards for value. I like building grindy, synergistic decks so I was using Carrion Feeder for it's ability to sac my stuff and didn't really care about how big it got to use as an attacker. The counters it gave itself just made it harder to remove when Marchesa was on the board.
I know I ran a lot of ways to use my life total as a resource, so Noxious Gearhulk 's lifegain was actually useful for when I wanted to bulk up some life to sink into something like Necropotence or Toxic Deluge . Pretty sure I also ran Miren, the Moaning Well as another way to gain some life as well.
