I'm using this sequence for a while now and I pretty much cleared the whole Story Mode with it and I've been winning some competitive matches with this sequence too, but I got feeling I'm missing something and I was hoping if you guy's (and girls^.^) could give me your opinion on this sequence....
Waaay too fragmented, IMO. You want consistency. I advise you to buy more Dama/Lanz/FC/PP and lay off the courtesans and deceptive a bit in exchange for adding Magnetic Personality (use on Lanz/Antonio to score through enemies), Bearer of Mixed Tidings (draw), and/or Sofia Sartor, Clothes Make The Man, Copycat, Auxilary Ego, and/or Art Gallery for Agent Rush.

Like Joek said, this deck is way too fragmented. Now I understand you want this to be a semi-rush deck and I think you don't have all the cards yet so I'll try my best to edit this deck with cards that are not too expensive in case you want to give it a try.
Also one thing I noted in your deck is that you used Media but only have 2x Dama Rossas so I'm not sure if Media would be your best secondary set here. But in my edit below, I still used Media just to be consistent with what you wanted.
I haven't tested the deck but based on eyeballing it, it should do fairly well. 50% of the deck is income, Agents should be aplenty and if you have an opening hand that includes Bearer of Mixed Tidings, you should be fine, I think. Try to build income early on (shouldn't be a problem with Dama, Merchant Ship, and Occhi all providing +2). You can probably survive against Deceptive Rush with the Beguiling Courtesans there but you may want to change it back to Coy Courtesan if you feel you need more income.
The core cards are Damat, Lanz, and Underground Maze. Try to get one of each down (preferably Maze first), then let your Thieves do the rest. You will be susceptible to mass destruction cards (Animus Reboot, Wrath of the Righteous) but hopefully you'd be faster than your opponent.
Agents / Income: - Dama Rossa x2 x5 [not very expensive if you need to buy more] - Beguiling Courtesan x5 [change back to Coy Courtesan if you feel you still lack income] - Cento Occhi Footpad x2 x5
Sites / Income: - Hidden Refuge x3 x5 [As an alternative, you can replace with Slave Trade - gold card] - Merchant Ship x5
Draw: - Bearer of Mixed Tidings x5 - Forced Charity x1 [Add more if you have, otherwise very expensive]
Core Cards: - Damat Ali Pasha x4 - Lanz x1 x5 [not sure what the price is today but hovered between 300 - 500 last I checked] - Underground Maze x1 x5 [don't know what the current price is for UM] - Antonio de Magianis x3 x5 [Needed vs. Sites]
Discarded: - Romani Pickpocket x2 - Romani Camp x3 [sticking with Hidden Refuge] - Discreet Calling x4 [changing this to Bearer of Mixed Tidings] - Coy Courtesan x3 [favor Beguiling Courtesans as defense for Deceptive Rush] - Ruthless Robbers x4 - Turkish Assassin x4 - Fiora Cavazza x2 - Ugo x2 [favor Cento Occhi] - Vicious Sneak Attack x1 [taken out because most agents have Threat] - La Volpe x2 - No Rest for the Wicked x1 - Altair, Assassin x2 [favor Bearer and Forced Charity over this] - Mark Target x1 [taken out because most agents have Threat] - Assassin Den x2 - Lia de Russo x2 - Assassin Stronghold x1 [ability glitch but good influance] [taken out because you're doing Agent rush / semi-rush] - Ezio Auditore, Assassin x1 - Master Assassin x2

Oke thanx, those are some good pointers! I forgot to mention it was also supposed to be a 99% Crime Sequence [Dama Rosa was put in cuz of 0cost/2Income] but none the less I got to work and tried to put up a new sequence with the suggestions I got from you guy's, at least as far as I got the cards to do it with
I took the list of Coolkendude and came up with 31 cards so I had to fill in the other 19 cards, I'm out of Animus Credits so I couldn't buy much more in the market but here is what I came up with hehe
Agents/Income: - Dama Rosa x2 - Beguilding Courtesans x3 - Romani Pickpocket x4 [Income plus good combo with Lanz/Damat] - Ugo x3 - Cento Ucchi Footpad x5
Blocking Guards: - Fiora Cavazza x3
Sites/Income: - Hidden Refuge x5 - Main Piazza x1
Action/Income: - Vantage Point x1 [needed one card to make 50...]
