That isn't really Marxism, it's Marxism-Leninism.

As long as Marx advocated for seizing the state and replacing the rulers with a different set of rulers - he supported hierarchy and thus, tyranny.

There are a lot of communist thinkers that didn't advocate taking over the state - including several that predated Marx. But Marxists choose to identify as followers of Marx, and have little interest in non-Marxist communism, even mocking any ideas that don't originate from their idol and his disciples. So I can only assume they embrace hierarchy.
