Blood Pet Discussion

Pawn of Ulamog is great, I would also play stuff like Blood Pet, Caustic Caterpillar, Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed, which you can sac for really good effects. Noosegraf Mob is something you should have a look at...I guess there's a combo with that but I have yet to figure it out.
Protean Hulk is probably not worth the slot if it doesn't start an infinite combo. It's ridiculously strong when played with Flash, which can be a turn 1 or 2 kill. With lots of tutors it's even reliable...here you can't automatically win when hulk dies.

invigorate_berserk10: While that is a neat pile its a bit too bulky for this list and sorcery speed. The reason breakfast combo is so good is that it has extra cc to deal with hate pieces and stop interaction. This version requires Blood Pet to be "free" and has no real advantages over the HD piles. The only card I would want in my list would be trinket mage. If we had a good instant speed pile (no mike ballista, delver, sac outlet nonsense) I would definitely give it a try.

Wheres Burning-Tree Emissary? I feel this deck could also use another 1 drop mana dork or you can go the routes of

I like the look of it. I've got a Meren build that I've kept tinkering with too. I've not heard of this "seven by nine" build, but I will look into it. Thanks for sharing!

Lions' Eye Diamond is a powerhouse, in the same way any rocks are a powerhouse with Grenzo DD.
We don't cast DD with it, but we crack it in response to a successful DD cast. If DD is resolved, we're already all in. What LED does, however, is for 0 to ensure we can count it against our required land to plug DD. With something like Chrome Mox, or Mox Diamond, etc, we need BBB + both of those rocks to hit our threshold.
With LED, we can ensure we hit that threshold for using Grenzo's ability for 0. With LED, we need: BBB+LED. With almost any other rock/mana source (outside of the double taps like Crypt/Sol), we need BBB+Rock/Rock, or BBB+B(for ritual, etc). This means that we end up needing to cast more things.
Sure, the loss of the hand is regrettable, and we'd always prefer to keep that hand, but LED is another 0 drop to keep us firing on what we do best - win the race to go off. Without it, we just end up needing more cards/ramp/ritual that slow us down or affect our opening hand more. LED is probably one of the best rocks inside of a DD deck simply due to that - it ensures you only need to cast 1 rock to go off, not 2.
Victimize acts a a final backup for the KIZC pile, and while ending in a position that you need to wait a full turn to cast it probably means life is over for you, it does give you that sliver after a failed DD. Reanimate is certainly something you could consider in it's place. If you do, please let me know how it handles, especially after double removal.
Cards that are currently likely to be cut, as per my testing log if you're looking for cuts to add in a reanimate package:

In that case, what do you think of Scuttling Doom Engine , Anvil of Bogardan , Necromancy , Culling the Weak , maybe even a Blood Pet , Hecatomb , Priest of Gix , Laquatus's Champion , Silent Arbiter , always thought Tortured Existence was a cool card, but I'm not sure if it'd make sense in this deck, something to consider at least.

Mana Vault on T1 lets you cast Sidisi on T2.
Mox Jet - obvious but you most likely won't get one cheap.
...can't think of any more accelerations right now, hope you find some usefull!

If you are going wide Cryptolith Rite, and Elder of Laurels for green. I used to use Pawn of Ulamog and Blood Pet with Decaying Soil to trigger infinite deaths. Deathgreeterand cards that trigger on death like Extractor Demon are good. If you went that route, milling with Altar of the Brood and cards like Animate Dead that let you take from their grave. Great sacrifice fodder: Nether Traitor and Reassembling Skeleton.
