I have a few recommendations for you.
Second, Spark Double feels like it was custom made for Marchesa. It copies Marchesa for double Dethrone, the copies protect one another, and this copy enters with a counter immediately protecting itself.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not wizards but still the same idea. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

Nice deck, I do have a few suggestions though.
First, Spark Double feels like it was custom made for Marchesa. It copies Marchesa for double Dethrone, the copies protect one another, and the copy enters with a counter immediately protecting itself.
Baleful Strix is definitely worth including.
Metallic Mimic can be used to abuse an etb/death trigger on everyone's turn instead of once per round. Just sac to reset the creature type as needed. Can also name human or wizard to immediately protect Marchesa.
Sage of Fables immediately protects Marchesa and it's an infinite combo piece with Ashnod's Altar and Flayer of the Hatebound. The draw ability is nice too.
Glen Elendra Archmage - Not an artifact... but your best counterspell in Marchesa by a long shot. Also infinitely combos with Mikaeus + Goblin Bombardment.
Diabolic Intent is arguably better than Demonic Tutor here.
Midnight Reaper in addition to Grim Haruspex.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not modular Marchesa but it's one of the top rated Marchesa lists on this site and you may find something you like. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

Nice start. I do have a few suggestions to help you lower your avg. cmc though and I'll try to break it down by category and suggest a cut.
Draw: Midnight Reaper , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , and Skullclamp for Butcher of Malakir (Grave Pact if your mana can handle it but Butcher is overcosted and susceptible to more removal), Bedevil (versatile but single use and not abuseable here), and Necropolis Regent (Really good at what it does but there's better finishers for Marchesa).
Control: Glen Elendra Archmage (combos with Mikaeus and Goblin Bombardment also) for Mystic Confluence (Glen Elendra gets multiple uses, Confluence only 1).
Boardwipes: Last One Standing and Jokulhaups for Decree of Pain (You won't need extra cards with Jokulhaups and it's cheaper to cast) and Polymorphists Gest (Last One Standing is the same cost but effects all opponents rather than 1).
Discard: Sadistic Hypnotist and Oona's Blackguard (discard helps seal up games tighter than a dolphin's butthole) for Vilis (Marchesa does better with cheap aggro) and Underworld Connections (You'll have better results out of resource denial than a single use per turn draw).

Plz forgive if this is a stupid thing to ask: Is synergy a must have for competitive play? I’ve had mixed results with this mono black aggro deck over the past 5 or 6 weeks. Any comments/criticisms from anyone more experienced than me (everyone ha!) are appreciated.
2 drop - Order of Midnight x2
Sideboard is a couple more removals, green countermeasures, and planeswalker removals
If this was a stupid question, I’m sorry for spam. TY for taking the time to read.

Thanks for the suggestions KibaAlpha, much appreciated!
I decided not to run too many one-use spells like Dark Ritual , Bubbling Muck and Lotus Petal and keep the deck more midrange. I'll get a better feel for the need to add aggressive ramp after I get more playtesting under my belt.
I saw your Teysa deck when I was looking around for ideas early on, great work and thanks again.

I can definitely see her as a go wide Commander, I personally prefer to go tall though. I don't think I would have to change the 99 a lot to switch to a go wide strategy, although just adding the Knight Exemplar , Inspiring Captain and/or the Midnight Reaper won't suffice. I have most of the pieces for a go wide approach in the Maybeboard already. I just can't bring myself to switch :D

Suggested Additions -
Spark Double - Copies Marchesa 100% of games. Double dethrone, 2 Marchesas protecting each other, and the copy enters immediately protecting itself.
Drana, Liberator of Malakir - Essentially Commander #2 for you here. Reliably gets counters to your team without worrying about the Throne.
Sage of Fables - Immediately protects Marchesa, allows you to abuse wizard etb/death triggers every turn, and it enables an infinite combo with Ashnod's Altar and Flayer of the Hatebound. (See my list for explanations on both infinite combos I mentioned)
I can keep going on both additions and cuts... just let me know you're picking up what I'm putting down. Feel free to check out my list for ideas, it's one of the top rated Marchesa lists on this site. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them
