I wouldn't make them tribal decks. I would just pick a "commander" that reflects that colors greatest strengths. You might at well make the format modern as well if its just going to be the set 5 decks.
Here are some Ideas for my commanders and their edicts.

Trtl - Apprentice lets you ramp into Razaketh, while Priest is a free creature.
Gigi - First, Deathmark is probably a meta card, so that can come out for Priest. Codex Shredder seems too mana intensive to be relevant and can be replaced with Sacrifice. Animate Dead and Dance of the Dead were probably meant to reanimate Sidisi, so they can be replaced with Unearth (to get a cheap creature to tutor again) and Bob.

Relentless Dead is too slow on too small of a body in modern. I could see keeping 1, but personally I would rather run 2x Bile Blight and 1 Tasigur, the Golden Fang/Gurmag Angler/Bontu the Glorified/Erebos, God of the Dead/Kolaghan's Command instead.
Profane Command is a waste of sideboard space. I really don't think Tragic Slip warrants additional space either. If it's within your budget I would suggest 1x Sword of Fire and Ice or 1x Sword of Light and Shadow.
Crumble to Dust, Blood Moon, Fulminator Mage, Deathmark, Demon's Horn, Lifebane Zombie, Damnation, Phyrexian Crusader, Phyrexian Arena, Pithing Needle, Boil, Flashfires, Terminate/Dreadbore (in place of Go for the Throat) are all viable options as well.

I like seeing what you've done with the tinkered list, and in an effort to make my own work better, I'd like to ask you about your changes.
Below, I've just included the cards unique to your list (and my general thoughts on them in the overall shell).
I was hoping you might correct my thinking about the cards (written below), with your own reasons for including them so that I may give them more fair consideration to bringing into my own work.
Boseiju, Who Shelters All - Without being able to protect Doomsday or Grenzo on cast, I was wondering what you were using this to protect.
Balthor the Defiled - What is Balthor being used for? He seems to be a big hit off ad nauseum. My original guess was his use being added to the KiZC pile as the fifth card for protection, but I'm not sure if he's the strongest option for it. If you eat a boardwipe, you should be able to respond by just stacking instant speed interactions. If the wipe is successful, Grenzo would be dead to and won't be able to bring Balthor in to get his ability off. I don't see a lot of buried alive effects to force balthor into play and reanimate a combo. His ability is also quite expensive. I could see a use for playing him, combo parts in hand, using LED to discard the hand, and then reanimating with Balthor, but I feels a Buried Alive combo would be cheaper and more efficient. So I was just wondering what your reason for his inclusion is.
Gorilla Shaman - Removal is nice, but the main stax issues for Grenzo are stax pieces that prevent activated abilties from being used, which means he can't remove the main stax creatures. What are the main targets for removal with him?
Collective Brutality - I dont mind this, and may try it out. I'm not sure if early on Grenzo wants to be spending precious black on the effects, but I'll certainly give it a run and see what happens.
Deathmark - Nice cheap stax removal, but feels to limited in the colours it can hit. Is this a meta call?
Desperate Research - I just worry about exiling combo parts. I know we run a similar effect with Plunge into Darkness, but plunge operates on instant speed to dodge Codex Shredder and shuffle effects, and has synergies with top and scroll rack. When do you find yourself getting the most value out of Desperate Research? How often do you exile important combo parts when? What are you usually hunting for?
Pentad Prism - I'd be worried about only ever casting this for 1R or 1B, and only getting a single counter on it preventing it from paying for itself. Would not something like the newly tested Springleaf Drum work better for you?
Firestorm - With the amount of board-wipes and removal that the deck uses, is another necessary? How often do you have cards you want to pitch to the effect?
Volcanic Fallout - I don't dislike it, but as above, we certainly run a good deal of wipes already. Do you often need extras? Do you generally have the excess red mana to cast this?
Price of Glory - I'll be testing this in my own list. Good tech.
Seal of Fire - Not a bad single mana T1 drop if you open with red. Would you rather use this or Lightning Bolt (for the extra damage)?
I'd appreciate if you could clarify your new card choices. I'm always looking to improve my deck and primer, so any ideas you have that have I would certainly love to hear about. You can find me either on TappedOut (as you've already done), reddit, or the cEDH discord.
Thanks for taking the time to explain your card selection to me!

- Virulent Plague -> looks better to me then Night of Souls' Betrayal or Illness in the Ranks
- Nyxathid -> looks better to me then Hunted Horror
Asylum Visitor is nice, but I can't find any spot to remove something on mainboard for it though. Quest for the Nihil Stone was in there in my first version, but I think The Rack and Liliana's Caress are more potent.

Alwayz a +1 for deck that run Dash Hopes
Somes suggestions for ya, take what you want:
Deathmark against those color
Asylum Visitor for grindy game, to draw more
Quest for the Nihil Stone which may be a dead draw late game
- Also, if they sideboard out all their removal, maybe some Pack Rat can be fun

@ghostdesigns I suggest replacing 2-4 Scars depending on the type and how many annoyances you're dealing with; if they're only teching in 2 Melira, Sylvok Outcast and nothing else, you likely only need 2-3 answers in the deck to hold in your back pocket.
