Sidisi, Undead Vizier is an excellent card for Thrax. Deathtouch blocker, sacrifice engine for a counter, and a tutor all in one!
You have too many lands that etb tapped. You don't want any lands that etb tapped, it's just too slow.
Solid deck! Making it faster will make it more consistent. And hateful. ;)

You asked for help, so here I am:
Paradox Engine is banned.
Cut Manalith and Chromatic Lantern . They are fine cards but there are more efficient ramp options at only 2 mana:
Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Dominance , Talisman of Creativity , Fellwar Stone , Mind Stone , Thought Vessel and Wayfarer's Bauble .
Some of your sorceries seem a bit clunky, like Cruel Ultimatum or Life's Finale .
Evacuation and Devastation Tide are great boardwipes, Crux of Fate is a solid budget option and Toxic Deluge is amazing but a bit pricy.
Wurmcoil Engine , Noxious Gearhulk , Neheb, the Eternal and Massacre Wurm are all quite highly costed and don't synergize well with the rest of the deck.
If you want to be mean, you could replace them with extra turn spells: Time Warp , Part the Waterveil and Karn's Temporal Sundering are reasonably priced, both in money and mana.
I personally would throw out all Guild Gates and raplace them with literally anything that does not enter tapped. A good budget replacement would be the pain lands: Underground River , Shivan Reef , Sulfurous Springs .
Lastly, cheap and efficient removal pieces I would consider are: Doomblade, Go for the Throat , Reality Shift , Rapid Hybridization and Pongify .

Ok, I finally have a day off.
Diabolic Intent for another tutor.
Grateful Apparition over Thrummingbird. Proliferates off hitting walkers too.

Pain lands such as Fiery Islet too
Are also pretty good ones if you're a masochist like me. You're playing black though, so why wouldn't you be? Hehe. Consistent color profile is important in these multicolored libraries.
My grixis under Thraximundar is undergoing some major changes right now. Check it out for more ideas on ramp and lands.

The Why: Show
Urborg - I feel that 30 lands may be just too much, and I hate giving my opponents any possible advantage, so we cut it for Negate.
Azorius Signet - I actually meant to swap this for Talisman of Creativity , not Talisman of Dominance

Get rid of Manalith , Pristine Talisman , and Darksteel Ingot for the Talismans: Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Dominance , and Talisman of Progress . Condemn should be replaced by something like Utter End , Anguished Unmaking , Murder , Go for the Throat , or some better removal spell that will actually remove something. You are running in here, so play to it's strengths. Instead of Curse of the Swine , I'd run something more like In Garruk's Wake or Plague Wind . Yeah, they are a high CMC, but they're budget, and one-sided. Day of Judgment would be a decent option, too.
You're running Wizard's Retort with only one Wizard in your deck. Cut it for 2 CMC counterspell or another removal piece.
Book of Rass is Book of Ass in this deck; the only colors I run Book of Rass in is Boros, because Boros sucks at card draw. With all the lifegain, Necropotence could be worth the risk to run. can be tough to pull off in a three-color deck, but it might be worth a shot in this deck with all the lifegain. Arguel's Blood Fast Flip and Erebos, God of the Dead are other options to consider.

As an easy and really cheap upgrade I'd replace all the lockets with the talismans such as: Talisman of Creativity , Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence . You can drop these talisman's (talismen) before you drop down your commander which can come in huge, also these allow you to lower your life total, thus making Marchesa, the Black Rose 's dethrone ability easier to trigger.
Currently I'm experimating with a budget Marchesa, the Black Rose - Theft deck aswell.
