Talisman of Dominance Discussion

Instead I would add a Conjurer's Bauble for some graveyard recusion and up your mana rock count. Talisman of Dominance, Mind Stone and Fellwar Stone are all really good. If you want another backup combo, adding a Paradox Engine will give you a few lines.
The addition of more low cost mana rocks will speed the deck up as well as help out Dramatic Scepter.

You need to add more control elements to make it run smoother, you have a decent amount, but it needs some sweepers like Anger of the Gods Languish or AEtherize. Disallow is going to be better than Cancel, but if you don't want to spend the money on it Scatter to the Winds, Void Shatter, Dissolve, Dissipate and Counterflux are all cheaper upgrades. Upgrade your mana base as you can, you could easily start by adding a few of the cycle dual lands or the battle for zendikar ones, then get Dragonskull Summit. I also like Foreboding Ruins and Choked Estuary, especially if you focus more on swamps. To help get bolas in play faster, Talisman of Indulgence and Talisman of Dominance are 2 drop mana rocks that work well in your colors. I would drop all your creatures and go more spell heavy, maybe making room for some Spellheart Chimera or Enigma Drake since you would increase your spell count. You can also run things like Sea Gate Oracle and Augury Owl to set up your draws. Consult the Necrosages is better than Brainbite. Slave of Bolas and Elder Mastery should be replaced with Dark Intimations. Drop Throne of the God-Pharaoh as well since you arent making tokens to benefit from it. Another decent creature to put in would be Noxious Gearhulk since it removes a creature. Duress and Blightning are also really good, as well as Negate and Barter in Blood.

Talisman of Dominance is illegal in this deck.
Otherwise I like where this deck is.

I am not a huge fan of signets. I would replace the 2 of them with Talisman of Dominance and Fellwar Stone as they can tap the turn they come into play without needing additional mana to activate. I also dont like wipe away. I would prefer something like Abrupt Decay, Stifle, Pongify, or Into the Roil over Wipe Away. Aside from that I think the brew looks great for your budget limitations.

Great looking deck so far, there is a lot of potential with Mill, it is generally very hard to deal with.
First, Mirko Vosk is woefully incomplete without his dagger, Trepanation Blade.
Phenax, God of Deception combos with the creatures you have in the deck.
Looks good so far though, try making all of those cards mesh in with your deck.

Creatures with graft are ridiculously powerful in Marchesa, since they recur themselves while providing recursion to your other creatures. Some of the best ones are Cytoplast Manipulator, Novijen Sages, Vigean Graftmage, and Helium Squirter. Alright, so maybe that's just all of them in your colors, but they're all fantastic.
Mulldrifter isn't the only good evoke creature, and evoke is a pretty strong ability with graft or other instant-speed counter production. Ingot Chewer is great artifact removal, while Shriekmaw is great for killing creatures. One that I particularly like is Nevermaker, though having to leave the battlefield to trigger can make things tricky.
Free sac outlets are fantastic, and you have access to two of the best: Carrion Feeder and Viscera Seer. I'm not a huge fan of 3-cmc mana rocks, there are a bunch of other great 2-cmc options in Fellwar Stone, Thought Vessel, Talisman of Indulgence, and Talisman of Dominance. Finally, you've got a great set of powerful etb creatures, why not try Panharmonicon to double their abilities. Also, you're missing one of the most powerful etb effect of them all, Rune-Scarred Demon.

The Talisman of Dominance mistake was a dumb mistake on my part, I have put it in most of my decks (as Ive been brewing with Esper) and just didnt think
Dovescape is in here as a finisher of sorts, it essentially makes my enchantments immortal and I can create a copious amounts of bird, I just love the card itself so I am a bit biased lol
As for Oblivion Ring I have 3 cards that do basically the same thing in the deck, but with more upsides to them then O ring does (Grasp of Fate is amazing)
However I cannot turn down Cyclonic Rift, Teferi's Protection (as it has gone down by half in price since I last looked), Leyline of Anticipation, Propaganda is a bit iffy as I already have Ghostly Prison I just think its uneeded. I also will include Solemn Simulacrum, I regret trading my copy away :(

Hey there! Nice deck! I have some general suggestions for you:
- While not particularly "on-theme", Cyclonic Rift is absolutely amazing, and belongs in pretty much every Blue EDH deck out there.
- Likewise, Teferi's Protection belongs in pretty much every White deck out there.
- Propaganda is also very effective at annoying your opponents and just being a generally good enchantment.
- Oblivion Ring can eliminate troublesome threats for you.
- I like Solemn Simulacrum in all of my non-Green decks, it ramps you, it chump blocks, and it replaces itself, what's not to like?
- Fact or Fiction is excellent card "draw".
- I know you said you were only looking at cheaper cards, but Idyllic Tutor is very good at getting you your utility enchantments.
- Likewise, Leyline of Anticipation can allow you to sneak in an Oblivion Ring, Greater Auramancy, or the like to surprise your opponents.
That's pretty much it for suggestions, now I have a few cards I would recommend cutting:
- I'm not the biggest fan of Dovescape, as it affects you too.
- I likewise don't care for Aura Thief, as you have to find a way to kill it before it becomes useful.
- Talisman of Dominance actually isn't legal in your deck, as it has a Blue/Black color identity.
In any case, nice job you did here! Hope this helps!
