I've added a comment with my thoughts.

It would be good to have a rough idea of what additional money you're wanting to throw towards the deck, so that people have a good idea of what to suggest. I see you have some expensive cards, like Metallic Mimic - but I've made a perhaps incorrect assumption that you're largely looking for cards costing under a dollar.

Last_Laugh I've always considered Metallic Mimic but found it awkward. Never realized you can kill it to reset the creature type and it definitely goes in as another way to protect Marchesa. Kokusho is funny but I've been trying to heavily lower the curve on the deck. Mikaeus shenanigans are my favorite way to win along with Juri, Master of the Revue + Dockside Extortionist . Last One Standing is a favorite board wipe of mine I just don't know what to pull out. I definitely think Gary is insane but I have too many decks that win off of it and my playgroup wouldn't appreciate another deck that does the same thing. Thanks for the suggestions I can always use more!

Metallic Mimic deserves a spot. It either immediately protects Marchesa or it helps abuse etb/death triggers over and over. Just sac it to rename the creature type as needed. Kokusho, the Evening Star and Gray Merchant of Asphodel are two of my favorites to end games.

Last One Standing has a few things going for it. It costs less than Damnation and it gets under/around Gaddock Teeg/Void Winnower.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's likewise etb/death abuse with no theft but it has over 100 comments and a pretty big maybeboard to sift through. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Got 99 Upvotes And A Bitch Ain't One - Marchesa

This list feels very good - a lot like the older Steel Overseer hardened scales lists. It might be a little too optimal for casual play, depending on the group.

In terms of being stronger, the main thing I'd look at is Lurrus of the Dream-Den - a single side slot makes the entire list substantially grindier, and splashing white is fairly simple with artifact supporting lands, also giving access to Esper Sentinel , Arcbound Mouser and Arcbound Javelineer if you want them.

If you aren't pushing for pure power, Scrapyard Recombiner likes constructs, which would let you run a weird Metallic Mimic tribal list. There are also various combo options.

Chalice of the Void usually is the counterpart to Power Conduit as they play very well together, but with the number of 1 drops you run, I'm not sure its an ideal choice, often needing to wait for 4 mana or more to be useful. Other answers are probably preferable

You're missing a few important cards that allow you to abuse etb/death triggers on everyones turn instead of once per round. These cards also have the added bonus of immediately protecting Marchesa as she enters.

Metallic Mimic , Sage of Fables , and Vigean Graftmage . Mimic is probably the most powerful of the bunch just due to versatility... name zombies for Grey Merchant or Vindictive Lich , dragons for Kokusho, the Evening Star , Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip, or Terror of the Peaks , or humans/wizards to protect Marchesa. Just sac as needed to reset the creature type.

I also run a synergistic etb/death trigger abuse Marchesa. Feel free to check out my list for other ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Got 99 Upvotes And A Bitch Ain't One - Marchesa

This deck was exactly what I was looking for- and I built a very similar one, just omitting some of the really expensive cards. Now I am actually converting it to Jund with Korvold and the new Modern Horizons 2 Gobbos Ignoble Hierarch Goblin Anarchomancer Grumgully Putrid Goblin Metallic Mimic Vexing Shusher Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth Life and Limb

Just wanted to let you know I love this deck- and wanted to let you know it inspired me!

king-saproling my mistake, Cauldron of Souls DO sinergize well with Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel and Metallic Mimic ...just realize :')

king-saproling thanks for the comment! i didnt see that Metallic Mimic sinergized well with Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel so it's indeed a nice add! On the same idea, i dont think that the persist of Cauldron of Souls would work well with either Metallic Mimic nor Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel .I'm considering all the cards you cite but i still have too much cards to cut, any outside point of view on which cards seem not worth the cut?
