Other commanders you might consider:
I would highly recommend to reconsider your commander-picks. Garza Zol, Plague Queen as well as Thraximundar are not likely to help you get your win conditions. They are very expensive and may not even help the conundrum of this deck as well.
Other cards you might want to include in your deck:

I'd recommend Army of the Damned, Cyclonic Rift, and Thraximundar. Crosis's Charm is a great utility card, and Grave Upheaval is probably better than Breaking / Entering because it gives you early-game mana fixing if you need it.

Nicol Bolas is kinda awful, not gonna lie. He is expensive, has no protection and the effect is mediocre in late game.

TheRedGoat and RedJokr, I'm not sure why I didn't consider Crosis, the Purger already. But as far as being a hate commander, do you think Crosis, the Purger or Thraximundar is better? Based on the way I built this, I'm not sold on Marchesa, the Black Rose because, as TheRedGoat saod, there is no synergy.
TheRedGoat what would you take out for Blood Artist or the other? My problem with them is generally they are targeted before anyone board wipes, and they are generally ineffective. I've taken Blood Artist out of so many edh decks for that reason. Plus, Hissing Miasma is harder to destroy.
Also TheRedGoat, what synergies would you like to add in?

Nice composition, I especially like the creature choice.I am building a similar deck and can throw some ideas your way:I think the main drawback you have is card draw. You are going for Card quality instead, with tons of ways to search your library. However, if you don't draw any of those cards, or you don't draw enough lands you will starve before ramping up. Any of your creatures are good enough to dominate mid-game. You only need specific cards for lategame. It would be considerably easier to achieve the mid-game with ramping up mana and drawing cards.I would suggest switching out some copies of Time of Need, Weird Harvest and Congregation at Dawn for Explore and Harmonize. And perhaps 2 Elvish Harbinger for 2 Sakura-Tribe Elder.
Some further creatures to look at:
Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Aurelia, the Warleader, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Knollspine Dragon, Sepulchral Primordial, Ashen Rider, Bringer of the Blue Dawn, Craterhoof Behemoth, Hellkite Overlord, Pelakka Wurm, Razia, Boros Archangel, Thraximundar

Ok...There are typically two ways of making a Marchesa deck. The first way is to put in a lot of creatures that can get +1/+1 counters easily (like Anthroplasm, Aetherborn Marauder, Butcher Ghoul, Carrion Feeder or Unleash/Modular cards). The problem is, these cards hardly do anything other than putting counters on themselves. They're pretty much duds. So to make up for this, people will put in good sac outlets, (Cards like Mind Slash, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia, Attrition, etc). This type of deck gets its engine running STRICTLY from it's sac outlets, (NOT FROM ITS CREATURES) and because of this, it is a bit more reliant on it's commander.
The second type of deck is my preferred method of playstyle. Whereby, the deck is not RELYING on its sac outlets, (although it does have a few) but rather on the bounce effects of creatures. (Cards like Mulldrifter and Harvester of Souls). With this type of deck, you're also not fully relying on your commander. Marchesa is just a perk. If you don't have her out, you can still play your creatures and benefit from them.
Also keep in mind, that it isn't too hard getting +1/+1 counters on your creatures just using the dethrone ability itself. I find that most, if not all the time, you will NOT be at the highest life total; especially if you have Necropotence, Ancient Tomb, Unspeakable Symbol, shock lands, fetch lands, and pain lands in the deck.
This is the Marchesa deck that I personally made. You're welcome to look at it for suggestions.

Some cards that I would highly recommend putting in the deck are:
- Sneak Attack
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Demonic Tutor
- River Kelpie
- Consecrated Sphinx
- Diabolic Intent
- Harvester of Souls
- Glen Elendra Archmage
- Mind Slash
- Thalakos Deceiver
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Phyrexian Tower
- Cyclonic Rift
- Grimgrin, Corpse-Born
- Mikaeus, the Unhallowed
- Scourge of the Throne
- Unspeakable Symbol
- Grave Betrayal
- Flayer of the Hatebound
NOTE: If you do decide to have this deck be a bit more ETB heavy, Deadeye Navigator and Rite of Replication are good cards to help abuse the ETB triggers.

Well, I don't play standard (haven't since Origins), but if I did, this would seem fun. The only grixis I've played is in EDH, formerly under the likes of Thraximundar and Sedris, the Traitor King. I like the colors, so it's good to see it finally feeling at least mildly relevant in standard.
