Cool list!

Have you considered Novijen Sages or Sage of Fables to turn counters into cards?

Drana, Liberator of Malakir works nicely with Marchesa's second ability. You can also consider Yahenni, Undying Partisan as well. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is extremely useful, so you can include him if you're willing to break the bank a little.

Dictate of Erebos is an instant-speed version of Grave Pact, so when someone blocks your guy with a bigger creature, just flash in Dictate for annoyance.

River Kelpie, Sage of Fables, Disciple of Bolas, and Grim Haruspex give nice card advantage. These are also somewhat synergistic with Chasm Skulker.

You can also try out Olivia, Mobilized for War (and/or Olivia Voldaren) and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born for some synergy with Marchesa.

Oona's Blackguard and Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch work as well.

For some more ETB damage, you can put in Warstorm Surge, Goblin Bombardment, and maybe Sneak Attack.

Just a thought you could add Archetype of Imagination which would solve flying problems. even though it is a human it is a human wizard which would give it the counters from Sage of Fables but it would also cost one less because of Stonybrook Banneret

In my opinion, I'd get rid of Customs Depot, Long-Term Plans, Snapcaster Mage (too powerful and just not necessary), Mormir Vig, Sage of Fables (multiple turns for days huh? ugh...), Lifecrafter's Bestiary (never as good as you think), The Great Aurora (too silly)... and probably 1-3 lands... in a deck with such a low average CMC, you can get away with less :)

Are Sage of Fables, Novijen Sages, Prime Speaker Zegana, or Soul's Majesty any good to you for fat card drawing?

Also Sage of Fables and Riptide Director are ridiculous sources of card draw, if you didn't know about them

As I recall, Cytoplast Manipulator is the only one worth mentioning.

Sage of Fables is also nice.

Old Marchesa is a lovely general, allowing you to build around a lot of themes. Aggro/poison is where I went.

ETB creatures looks to be your shtick though. Grave Betrayal & Cauldron of Souls both add to that hilarity. At this point, we start talking about a combo-esque deck and I don't know if that's where you want go.
