I think your deck crucially lacks Unspeakable Symbol. No Marchesa build is complete without it. :-D It does everything you want.

how about an Unspeakable Symbol or a Souldrinker to get uneven life so you can win with Near-Death Experience + Selenia, Dark Angel

Love the idea for the deck. I highly recommend Exsanguinate for more life stealing and Unspeakable Symbol so you can put some of your excess life to use.

One card that definitely should be added since the release of Rivals of Ixalan is Path of Discovery. A few other cheap card suggestions are Obsessive Skinner, Loxodon Warhammer, and Unspeakable Symbol.

My Skullbriar deck is valued at twice your budget, but feel free to take a look at the theme and mechanics, and for card inspiration.

Good Luck.

Thank you TheCatHerder & zebeg for the suggestions. I have taken your advice and added Unspeakable Symbol & Eldrazi Monument to the 99.

Unspeakable Symbol can be really nice for decks like this.

Hi! No problem! Got some ideas for ya!

I'm thinking this is a good start to a steal, dethrone, sack, gain control of a creature deck. Threaten effect, attack triggering Dethrone, sac to Ashnod's Altar, you end up with permanent control of the creature. P.S. I really like your Unspeakable Symbol in here. Brilliant!

So for what I'm thinking we'll need a bunch of stuff: Steal spells, ways to lose life(to activate dethrone), and sac outlets. Let's get to work!

Steal Spells: Slave of Bolas, Mass Mutiny, Insurrection, Mark of Mutiny(holy moley you don't even need dethrone :D), Act of Aggression, Word of Seizing, Zealous Conscripts, Kari Zev's Expertise, Act of Treason, Traitorous Instinct, Harness by Force, Hijack, Threaten.... these are all decent options. I think you should capitalize on the cost-efficiency of the red Threatens to leave room to do other things the same turn. Others like Insurrection are just game winners, especially if you end up with control of all of the stolen creatures in the end :)

Sac outlets: Fling(for the lolz and to deal some damage), Phyrexian Altar($$$$ I know), Attrition, Goblin Bombardment, Viscera Seer, Greater Gargadon, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Phyrexian Tower, Carrion Feeder, High Market... that's a good start. Hopefully find sac outlets with added utility. I also really like the lands, definitely run those.

Ways to lose life: Necropotence(commander staple, nice because you can pay only as much life as you need), Phyrexian Arena, Dark Confidant, Yawgmoth's Bargain, Bloodgift Demon, Sign in Blood & Night's Whisper, Dark Tutelage, Greed, Reprocess.... wow! luckily, black has us covered in this category! Take your pick! These are all amazing because they enable the strategy of the deck and draw you cards! Perfect!

Hopefully this will give you a good jumping off point! Good luck friend!
