You are correct! Grenzo is great fun. I, also, have been somewhat underwhelmed by making Grenzo goblin tribal and switched over to a more, impact critter/voltron scrambled eggs deck that is great fun.
Commander / EDH

Great to see people think outside the goblin-box at least a little with this zany commander.
Godo MUST be combined with blade of selves to be fun (I just learned that)

Blade of Selves probably would not be bad. Especially if you make the deck more consistently reanimating bigger creatures. Blade of Selves attached to Avatar of Slaughter or Furyborn Hellkite could deal some significant damage.

Magewright's Stone, Puppet Strings, and Staff of Domination because you want to be able to use the commander's ability as much as possible. Also, those are going to be huge targets once people realize what is happening. You'll want as much redundancy as possible.
Also, I think you could play some different big red stuff. Avatar of Slaughter could be hugely beneficial for you. Since you have to sacrifice him, you are the only one that gets the double strike benefit. Excruciator just to bypass any Fogs in your meta. Utvara Hellkite seems extremely beneficial because it will give you a dragon just for attacking. Plus, you already play multiple dragons. Spitebellows just seems funny here. It will always deal 6 damage to something! Furyborn Hellkite I feel like you could use if you made the deck a little different. Anything to deal one damage, to get a 12/12 flying for three mana. Hellkite Igniter seems good here, since you play an artifact subtheme. Hellkite Charger for the win. Scourge of the Throne for the same reason as Hellkite Igniter. Ryusei, the Falling Star for board wipes. Thundermaw Hellkite to tap all flying creatures so your attacks can get through. Akroma, Angel of Fury because she can just be a powerhouse. Combustible Gearhulk actually seems like a win-win for your deck. Neheb, the Eternal seems like he could benefit you with extra mana mainphase two. Conquering Manticore and Zealous Conscripts for similar reasons. Dragon Mage if you need a new hand. Combat Celebrant seems good here. Goblin Dark-Dwellers could be a possibility. Heartless Hidetsugu, dude yes!
I mainly searched for power, so I'm sure there are other creatures to look up with good ETB effects. After doing that search for you I realized that I like Feldon as a commander. Hope you don't mind if I make him based on your deck XD.

Speaking of jank....
Avatar of Slaughter cranks things up to 11 if he sticks. Might be too expensive, but he looks fun.
Thunderstaff for ultimate jank / low budget options.

Really enjoyed reading the Decklist, Primer and Comments. I've been looking for a deck to use Avatar of Slaughter because it just seems so ... brutal. I love it.
I'd be interested to know if you've considered any of these cards and why or why you wouldn't use them; Master Warcraft/Melee (too much of a one off?), Brutal Hordechief (too much mana?), Invasion Plans (TOO much of a sh*t storm and potentially unfavorable?), Odric, Master Tactician (not enough creatures of your own?).
Do you find that your opponents mostly end up tapped out and defenceless so Odric and the Hordechief aren't so much help?

Hey there, Is it okay for your playgroup that you use a non-legendary card as your commander? If so and you will continue to use Godsire, then you should consider tokendoublers. I am aware that some of them are kind of expensive, but on the other side, some of them arent: Anointed Procession, Doubling Season, Parallel Lives, Primal Vigor.
Populate, can work very good as well, because you play with huge Tokens: Druid's Deliverance, Growing Ranks, Rootborn Defenses, Sundering Growth, Trostani's Judgment, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage, Wake the Reflections, Wayfaring Temple, also great: Samut, Voice of Dissent.
Altough you have to think about, wich route you want to go with the deck. I would say swarm with tokens and go broad, not Voltron. But if you want to Voltron like hell, you should consider the follwing: Ramp like f*** in the first few turns. Godsire is expensive! and then give it a boost! Godsire has the Potential of killing in one hit if you combine it with the following:
Double Strike: Assault Strobe, Avatar of Slaughter, Battle Mastery, Berserkers' Onslaught, Blood Mist, Boros Charm, Duelist's Heritage, Fireshrieker, Psychotic Fury, Samut, the Tested, Silverblade Paladin, Temur Battle Rage.
Combine this with +X'er: Berserk, Dragon Throne of Tarkir on one of the Tokens, Fatal Frenzy, Nantuko Mentor, Onward, Overwhelming Stampede, Pathbreaker Ibex, Rush of Blood, Wine of Blood and Iron, Xenagos, God of Revels.
I hope i could help you.
