Hey, looks good. Consider digging a little deeper away from undying for budget cards that have great synergy with Marchesa?
Unspeakable Symbol is a good starting point because it can for the cost of life put a +1/+1 counter on any creature. Sage of Fables, counters can be removed to draw cards. Any Wizard that ETB after Fables then gets a counter this includes Marchesa because she's a Wizard. This Wizard interaction has good synergy with Wizards who give you value when they die: Disciple of Bolas(card draw and life gain) and Vindictive Lich(opponent disruption). These Wizards with Fables, Marchesa and a sac outlet is powerful.
No mana cost sac outlets are very much needed to take the most advantage of Marchesa's abilities: Carrion Feeder, Viscera Seer, and Yahenni, Undying Partisan. Both Feeder and Yahenni can put counters on themselves.
- Sage of Fables
- Dack's Duplicate
- Viscera Seer
- Carrion Feeder
- Yahenni, Undying Partisan
- Disciple of Bolas
- Vindictive Lich
- Zealous Conscripts
- Unspeakable Symbol
- Chaos Warp
- Fact or Fiction
- Lim-Dul's Vault
- Exotic Orchard
- Shivan Reef
- Dragonskull Summit
- Graven Cairns
- Sunken Hollow
- Smoldering Marsh
- Darkwater Catacombs
Duplicate is a very good creature clone because it can put a counter on the creature it clones with haste allowing it to be reanimated when it dies returning to clone something else. Conscripts is another value creature who can steal any permanent from an opponent. She has haste getting a counter from dethrone before she dies in combat being reanimated to steal something else. Thraximundar is one of the better top of the mana curve creatures with Marchesa because it has haste and can put counters on itself from your creatures dying or your opponents'.
Terminate and Warp are two budget staple Grixis removal spells in Commander. Fact is a staple blue draw spell since it most of the time gives you card advantage. Vault lets you dig for the cost of life for an important card such as Unspeakable Symbol, River Kelpie, etc. Victimize is a staple budget black reanimation spell. Sac one creature to reanimate two others.
All these budget land suggestions can ETB untapped. You're playing a lot of Basic lands making Sunken and Marsh good for less than $2 each.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Butcher Ghoul
- Cloudfin Raptor
- Ignition Team
- Kothophed, Soul Hoarder
- Overseer of the Damned
- Prince of Thralls
- Rakdos Cackler
- Rakdos, Lord of Riots
- Abyssal Persecutor
- Hound of Griselbrand
- Preyseizer Dragon
- Neurok Stealthsuit
- Obelisk of Grixis
- Vicious Shadows
- Red Elemental Blast
Any five cards in this list can be cut to make 100 cards, but I would start with cutting cards with the highest CMC.
Good luck with your deck.

Although Grixis isn't the greatest color for ramp, using a few rocks with Thraximundar in a control deck can be pretty cool... Throw in a few cards like Killing Wave , Archfiend of Depravity , Torment of Hailfire or whatever and have fun...

I really like the idea of making an EDH deck that's focused on all three HoD Gods. However, I don't think Nekusar, the Mindrazer is a good choice here. The only remotely effective way of playing Nekusar is to play that one-of Nekusar card drawing/burn deck you always see with him. Any other deck (including this one), you may as well pick literally any other Grixis commander. Thraximundar, Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, etc. Nekusar's abilities are gone to complete waste in this deck. I would highly recommend swapping him out.
Love the originality of the deck, +1.

It's funny; I have a similar history in the EDH format as you. I started out (if you can count it) making a stupid mash of my decks/cards to make a Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper with Savra and some weird token generation and a lot of sack outlets. After that night, I decided Golgari was the way to go, and I ordered that Izzet v. Golgari deck, and built Jarad. I think I'm probably a Johnny at heart so as soon as I started using the Dredge mechanic, I found it intriguing, building a Savra stacks Dredge deck with cards like Possessed Portal and Vengeful Pharaoh. It was fun, but hard to win with. I inadvertently created my first infinite combo and realized that's where its at. I went back to Jarad, took a tip or two from my Thraximundar zombie tribal, and Frankenstein'ed my Savra. I stayed with this deck as my main for a while, till Sidisi, Brood Tyrant came out. I saw Dredge as a viable mechanic in EDH and went for it. Iv'e tweaked it a lot since then, but the brother sister combo of Jarad and Savra have always had a place in my heart and decks.

My decks came the day after they were released. I have SOOOO many cards I have to sift through and choose which ones NOT to put in my deck. Lol
One thing I saw, it may not be tribal, but it synergizes well, and that's Thraximundar with all the saccing of tokens, it's not a bad pick.
