Sorry, but I honestly don't see the pillow-fortiness of this deck, with exception of the Crawlspace. Maybe a Disrupt Decorum or Grenzo, Havoc Raiser would be considered pillow-fort cards for red.

And without listing a bunch of walls (or creatures with Defender), you may want to consider Endbringer, Briber's Purse, or Edifice of Authority.

Golem's Heart isn't worth its CMC. I would recommend Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice, which you can use to ramp into Ad Naus or cast for 0 after you get a couple Altars out. Paradise Mantle is another possibility. Briber's Purse is another CMC 0 artifact that you can put a little mana into to help stay alive long enough to get your Ad Naus. You'll want some discard like Duress either mainboard or in the side to strip their counterspells.

Thanks for the feedback October_Scream! Eldrazi are too mana intensive for my taste, though I find that approach fresh and interesting in comparison to the usual weenies. Boldwyr Intimidator and Briber's Purse and the new Earthshaker Khenra are also very flavorfull and could be a fine starting point when beginning to build a Grenzo deck before working the way for cheaper alternatives with higher levels of repeatableness.

Berserkers' Onslaught on the other hand seems like a great addition for almost any level of tuning, and I'll be trying it out once I'm finished testing Scourge of the Throne or find another slot for trying out things. Key to the City is also actually quite nice when considering how little card selection is available for mono red.

Mana Geyser is a bit of a sometimes-do-nothing card, but It can still do heavy lifting when your board is empty and opponents always have plenty of tapped lands. I've never had to do it for less than ten for a net of 5 and usually goes towards 20. Very fun card :) I'd love to try out Neheb too if I ever get one.

The well thought out part of this deck in my mind is the efficient mana curve and stable amount of enablers (the ceatures and evasion) that come out early so that the deck consistently does what it's made for. I Wish there were more board wipes and removal that fit a token deck in red! It's harsh to wipe your own board and not have much mana to rebuild that turn, luckily Blasphemous act is so good in that regard and I wouldn't even run any of the others. There's also so few ways to beat Elesh Norn without playing 7+ mana cards. Those kinds of things the Unstable Obelisk is here for. I'm lucky to not see her often in my group!

When I was building Grenzo I thought the idea of having Eldrazis with Annihilator was a good idea, or Breaker of Armies to make sure you get as many small hitters in. Bane of Bala Ged was also a good add in my head since it's Annihilator but with permanents being exiled. The theme of my deck though was casting small creatures and getting in while the big ones take the blockers or certain spells make the smaller creatures unblockable. Briber's Purse is a maybe for me right now because of the X cost and only available once per turn, but if I had Pia and Kiran in my deck I'd probably keep it since it's another artifact to sacrifice.

Earthshaker Khenra is good for early game block prevention, then has more benefits late game when you Eternalize them.

There are also some spells that would be best to replace with other spells that give your creatures benefits or more mana rather than a take a creature spell, since that usually can only be used once. Boldwyr Intimidator is a weird late game card for block prevention, but when you have your own ramp, it will be a really good card. The last card I can think of is Key to the City, since it stops a blocker and gets you a card draw if you want it.

Berserkers' Onslaught is a really good card for a deck focusing on exiling and taking for yourself. The more unblocked creatures, the more spells to choose from to cast. Combat Celebrant is good too for extra combat, and it doesn't need a dethrone ability with an opponent that has more life (though it does have to be exerted, but it's still worth it in my eyes).

Battle Hymn may be something you should replace Mana Geyser with since you don't need to spend so much mana or wait for your opponents to become tapped out. Same goes with Neheb, the Eternal, since you're not having to rely on your opponent to help you produce mana.

Most of the deck still looks really well thought out though, and I may have to use some of these ideas for my own deck. I originally had Chandra's Ignition and Jaya Ballard, Task Mage as my boardwipe cards, but I forgot Blasphemous Act existed.
