Being that you want to do land hate here are some cheaper nasty land destruction cards that might interest you I don't know many green land hate cards so:
Orcish Settlers <-- would be really nasty with some ramp
Price of Glory sadly this is a little pricey for a budget deck
Pyromancer's Goggles <-- if you decide to throw some targeting land hate spells

You might want to up your land count. Most EDH decks run between 35 and 40. 32 means you're probably going to struggle with your land drops.
Anyway it looks like you're trying for an aggro punisher type deck. If that's the case then something like Savage Beating and Hellkite Charger would be good for being aggressive. Furnace of Rath is good for more damage doubling. Also Zo-Zu the Punisher; Ankh of Mishra; and Manabarbs are all really good. Price of Glory is good at stopping people from countering your spells and removing your creatures at instant speed. Lastly I'd recommend Chromatic Lantern for color fixing.

I agree. Add in No Mercy.
If you are playing Maralen of the Mornsong, along with the necessary Stranglehold to keep it one sided, you have no issue with tutors and combo. You should go all the way with this and play Vampiric Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, and Idyllic Tutor. Maybe add in some Transmute cards for extra tutoring, since these are often budget friendly tutor effects. Brainspoil gets you Starfield of Nyx, Sphere of Safety, Norn's Annex, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs (why aren't you running this?), and Master of Cruelties. Dimir House Guard gets you a ton of stuff, most importantly including Stranglehold, but could also get Opalescence. Dimir Machinations gets you any number of cards, most importantly including Maralen of the Mornsong, Price of Glory, and Solitary Confinement. Both Shred Memory and Netherborn Phalanx could potentially tutor up some good stuff. Add in some Group Slug enchantments for continuous pings, or some combo kill, and you have a lockout recipe. Any of the Gods in would also make nice wincons that are tutorable with any of the above tutors. If you are going strong on enchantments, both Opalescence and Starfield of Nyx turn out to be good wincons all by themselves. If you have that many enchantments, Replenish provides protection against an enchantment board wipe.
I like all the Freeze elements, it makes this into a scary Stax style taxation deck. If you are going that direction, why not add in the three best Stax pieces, Parallax Wave, Smokestack, and Tangle Wire? Lethal Vapors, Parallax Wave, and Starfield of Nyx would create a recurring board wipe for creatures, and even as a one shot, both Tangle Wire and Parallax Wave would fit in here nicely.
I also suggest thinking about lowering your curve. The cards in your list that are the highest CMC are actually not adding much to your major strategy. Trim them to make room for more efficient pieces, more tutors, and more cards that exploit the Stax/Tax theme. Also, you should think about running more ramp in the form of mana rocks. My experience is that both Stax and Pillow Fort want a curve with an average CMC somewhere around 2.5, and these archetypes also want a lot of mana rocks to power out early defensive plays. You only run two ramp cards, and your average CMC is 3.65, with a curve that tops out at 9! You will probably be waiting until turn 15 or so to get out Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Blazing Archon. Waiting that long for your defense means that it is unlikely to be doing anything for you.
Anyway, this is a very interesting deck, and a very different take on Queen Marchesa than most. I will be watching you develop it with great interest.

dlamars: Thanks for the upvote! I'll check out your list in a second.
(Also, I find Price of Glory to be pretty 1-sided in my list, because I tap very few lands at instant speed, but it may be different in yours.)

If you would like to I've made a first draft you can check out:A church angle, have seen. I ended up with a lot less enchantments than I expected, but Stranglehold, War's Toll, Crackdown etc made the cut. Let me know what you think.

feyn_do_alduin: I tried it, but I don't like infect, and I found it far too easy to get blown out (by having them destroy the Exoskeleton, forcing me to sac the equipped creature). Also, what's your meta like? Maybe we can figure out a way to overcome that.
dlamars: Hi! I will say that if you plan to run this as more of enchantment control, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight might work better for you. With regards to War's Toll specifically, I always preferred Price of Glory.
But I definitely considered that route, and chose not to follow it. Basically, this is a voltron deck first, and a stax deck second (because playing a lot of stax enchantments dilutes the aggressive nature of the deck). The deck you seem to be making is a stax deck first and a voltron deck second: they may overlap in a lot of the card choices but the focus is different. Regardless, feel free to tag me if you want any help with yours! :)

Price of Glory is a great suggestion thank you! I'm not sure about dropping the Asylum Visitor as it's been pretty solid so far. I might cut Disciple of Bolas though, hasn't really been working out well.

I recently put together Marchesa too she is fun with all those tokens. Surprisingly aggressive with pillow fort. I sadly found that pillow fort is kinda boring for me and only works for a few turns at my table, hopefully you have more success. Just watch out for giant creatures, I'm having to go with things like Worship instead. You might be able to get some real use out of things like Price of Glory. Causes a lot of counter spells to not get played. I have some other control hate in my current heavily in progress list Divine Decree. You may also want to find some more worth while enchantments to get the most out of Sphere of Safety, creature enchants can really help with this.
