"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .
One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

Heh, it's been awhile. Thank you for the suggestions on my deck, sorry I promised I'd get to this and didn't get back to it sooner. Awesome build, loving the theft theme of the deck.
- Torment of Hailfire ; it feels alright to run, but I'd consider playing Exsanguinate . It does one job and does it well, and gives you a bit of insurance.
- Liliana, Dreadhorde General and Chandra, Awakened Inferno are incredibly powerful planeswalkers, and if that's what you need them for, heck, that's a good enough reason. However, they ain't really on theme; maybe Geth, Lord of the Vault instead? Same high-end cost, similar powerful presence, and really supports what you want to do. Etali, Primal Storm , Sepulchral Primordial , Diluvian Primordial , and Wrexial, the Risen Deep are all awesome big drops as well.
- Mystic Remora or Rhystic Study is a great question, however, even through Remora's sucky cumulative upkeep and not hitting creatures, it does still only drop for 1 mana.
- And my personal favorite, Herald of Leshrac . Kinda Jank, but ahh, it's so good.

I would suggest anything with a insane ETB trigger. Etali, Primal Storm is pretty funny, Ilhag can protect it from any next turn removal. God-Eternal Rhonas ,and Verdurous Gearhulk are hilarious if you want to pump your team. Combustible Gearhulk ’s ETB trigger seems fun too.

kennical I appreciate the +1 and the feedback, unfortunately for Etali, Primal Storm the free effect is actrually not declaring it as attacking, hence why there are also no eldrazi in the deck, annihilator would be great but it wouldn't trigger off of Ilharg, the Raze-Boar 's ability. I really had a hard time cutting down the deck because of it, the same way it doesnt trigger Desolation Twin 's ability because im not casting the card. But thank you for the Bedlam Reveler suggestion. I know my hand will play out kinda fast if all goes right, could be just the thing in top-deck mode!

I feel like Ilharg's ability was created for creatures like Etali, Primal Storm , Bedlam Reveler , Lathliss, Dragon Queen where the creature might be temporary, but they have permanent effects. I love the inclusion of Thundermare and Breaker of Armies for the free swings though.

I've been looking through most of the Grenzo decks on tappedout and haven't been able to settle on one. Most of the builds seem to be torn between goblin tribal or theft. Whats your take on Grenzo? Whats is the best way to handle him or what would be the best archetype?
Goblin tribal seems cool (I don't have any deck similar to goblin tribal playstyle) but I feel like it would just be too heavily pressured. In my meta every player has boardwipes in their deck so going wide has been always risky in the past. Maybe i'm just missing out on the goblin speed due to lack of inexperience and not seeing some plays/strings.
I've been trying to complete 5 mono colored decks and decided on grenzo because I got some inspiration from your deck. Would love to hear your thoughts.
