Polluted Dead with Teysa Karlov equals 2 lands for 1, plus I can reanimate it with many of my reanimate cards to use this effect more. With my many sac outlets it is also instant speed.

Polluted Dead is terrible, you should run Vindicate instead.

Unspeakable Symbol should definitely be in here. It does both of the things Marchesa wants to do. Harvester of Souls and/or Grim Haruspex can be great card draw here as well. Avalanche Riders and Polluted Dead can get rid of troublesome lands like Arcane Lighthouse. Maybe the talisman for acceleration as well as life manipulation? Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence Marchesa is one of my favorite commanders. I always upvote a good Marchesa. :D

I like Krosan Grip a lot and the only reason it isn't here is because I don't have a copy! For now Fade into Antiquity works and I like the exile effect.

I've never heard of Hell's Caretaker before. I think it'll be an instant add if i get a copy. great suggestion.

The two land cards are excellent as well. I've been using Polluted Dead and Acidic Slime for similar effects, but I've never considered having the ability on a land before.

Polluted Dead Helldozer Deus of Calamity

Some cards that destroy lands. Helldozer might be good if everythings a swamp, wont be hard to cast and you can untap him lots to destroy more land

Polluted Dead made way for Beguiler of Wills, and Butcher Ghoul made way for Zombie Master. Still need to remove something to make room for the Grimoire of the Dead. Veilborn Ghoul is a tempting choice.
