From my Marchesa deck:

Blood Tyrant is great if it can survive. Dark Impostor is really scary if you can exile a few commanders. Drana, Liberator of Malakir is pretty scary. Hellhole Flailer is decent removal. Malakir Cullblade HOLY SHIT that got big fast. Marchesa's Smuggler can come out of nowhere. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen is really, really big. Fervor doesn't seem that great, but it can destroy removal-centric control decks. Rhystic Study is SO MUCH DRAAAW. Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker is easily the best artifact/enchantment removal in Grixis. Blasphemous Act is awesome when death is impermanent. Killing Wave is in the same boat. Rakdos's Return ANNIHILATES combo players. Use Sudden Demise on the G or W player, or even on your guys. Bident of Thassa is just awesome.

And there's still an entire Meren deck to cover.

Attrition. Champion of Stray Souls is good for those who fall through the cracks or just as a bluff. 'Even if you DO finally kill my guy he'll just come back'. Corpse Traders against combo players. Disciple of Bolas is good draw and it can be a TON. Slum Reaper is good, and wildly asymmetrical. Stronghold Assassin, in your build, is recursive Attrition. Vampiric Rites is really good early game. Westvale Abbey  Flip is stupid difficult to remove, starting as a land and then an indestructible creature.

And finally, my favorite one of all: Vindictive Lich. I normally use it as a political piece, letting people pick the fate that seems least bad. Through that, I learn what their unique kryptonite is. I then use that once I am strong enough that I don't need any alliances.

I love this deck, but... no Ghostly Prison? No Starfield of Nyx? Let's go full-on enchantress on this bitch. Curse of Misfortunes is monstrous, especially when paired with Overwhelming Splendor. Sigil of the Empty Throne is a beast in enchantments, too. Worth considering is Daxos the Returned but he's not fantastic. Great blocker generator.

Good removal can be Doom Blade, Ultimate Price, Sudden Demise is good vs. blue, Divine Reckoning, Wrath of God, Blasphemous Act, Fumigate. All great with little-to-no creatures. Lightning Helix is also neat.

This one's more optional, but Sorin, Lord of Innistrad is good life gain, gives you a few good blockers. And if you're running Exquisite Blood you might as well have Sanguine Bond up your sleeve to go infinite.

Magister of Worth is a gamble, since you'll probably have few cards in the grave. Also, no rocks? That's up to you, I guess. I appreciate the flavor of Triskaidekaphobia but it's really not good.

This deck is awesome, super cool and fun. I love the flavor of it, the functionality, and the fact that group hug comes in black.

Oh jeez, no wonder early game has been a nightmare for you! You need more lands, along with some artifacts that generate mana.

I would immediately add ~5 lands along with a few staple artifact ramp cards like Commander's Sphere, Gruul Signet, Golgari Signet, Rakdos Signet, and Chromatic Lantern.

To make room for these additions, you're looking at a few cuts as well - I would start with:

Sudden Demise - As a 3 color deck, you will often be calling your own colors.

Cryptolith Rite - You don't really want to be tapping your dragons for mana.

Argentum Armor - This feels like overkill to me, though this is more personal preference.

The sub-theme you have with token generation is also kind of weird, what is your goal with the additional token generation cards?

Hopefully your future early game endeavors will go smoother - best of luck with the deck!

Ok ok so, i have a commander deck with Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund as the commander. The deck itself has functioned pretty well up until recently, i have been getting completely rekt early game. Do keep in mind i have not been playing long and do not have a great understanding of cards or of a good build, in fact this is the first deck i have ever built. All i really need help with is early game because dinos have been destroying me as of late. The deck is built as follows:i have no clue what im doing dragons

I'd cut both enchantments and put in a Preordain and Mana Leak / Negate. More importantly though, you could use another solid boardwipe or two. Obviously Damnation is the need here, but if you don't have one, Sudden Demise, Black Sun's Zenith, or Bontu's Last Reckoning? Feels really important to have a couple of hard wipes to be able to Intuition.

Also, you have very poor spot removal. Also also, to be honest, I think there are better ramp commanders, but if you are dedicated to child, whatever. I suggest Swords to Plowshares over spreading flames, Sudden Demise, Toxic Deluge, Fact or Fiction are also good
