Lvl 32 Carnage Marauder here, just want to add my two cents about what I am doing. Specifically regarding the abilities you didn't mention/cover.

Retaliation - I use it whenever proc is up. Doesn't waste a GCD and it's only slightly weaker than Vicious Slash. Not sure if it will still be worth it once I get Massacre, however.

Pommel Strike - Very strong and does not cost Rage. Smash and Force Scream both stun weak and standard enemies allowing you to use this. I actually open on a group of enemies with something like Charge > Smash > Pommel > Battering Assault (this usually kills one) > Gore > Ravage. In Flashpoint/heroic situation you would have to wait for another party member to do a stun before you can use it since we don't have a stun that works on strong/champion mobs.

Force Choke - It's channeling and doesn't do great damage so it's not really worth it unless you are 1v1 with a mob. Apply Rupture first of course. While channeling it also stuns the enemy so that's great to allow cooldowns to refresh and also gives your companion extra time to attack them/heal you/whatever. I had a hard time with Strong quest mobs until I started using this actually. If your Jugg tank uses this (I'm not sure if this is optimal for them but I've seen some use it) it's a good time to Pommel Strike as well.

Feel free to correct me on anything wrong/stupid.

EDIT: Also wouldn't Surge be better for us than the other trees since we crit more via Frenzy > Force Scream.

Annihilation, Carnage is lacking compared. Smash & Deadly Saber/Sweeping Slash makes aoe packs drop like flies.
