Exploration is going out. You are completely right, it really is only good for my openening hand. Most of the other cards applications are useful.
Herald of Leshrac will stay because I have never played him before. As you say, he will probably paint a big target on my back or get removed. I do see myself possibly removing the card in the future, depeniding on how he preformes!
Thanks for the tips t3hdarkness!

The weakest cards after that point are probably meta dependent.
Exploration is purely luck based in your build (Unless your group House Rules Partial Paris Mulligan). When its in your opening hand its fantastic but more often than not its comes down too late to do anything. Deathreap Ritual isn't so great if you primarily play vs 1 or 2 players Herald of Leshrac draws a giagantic target on you vs 2 or more. Aetherworks Marvel probably won't proc very often unless you see a ton of field wipes Void Winnower is good against combo decks and Overseer of the Damned is good against creature and graveyard based decks but both are situational.

lagotripha - Villainous Wealth has 0 synergy with what the deck is trying to do, we're trying to cheat costs on creatures more than straight ramping. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen tends to win us the game on the spot if we untap with him. Depending on our board sometimes he wins just with his landfall ability the turn he's played. Avenger of Zendikar has horrible synergy with our key card, Heartless Summoning, and Herald of Leshrac is much too slow for 7 mana. Reap Intellect runs into the same problem as Villainous Wealth. We're not actually ramping, we're just cheating the cost of creatures, so it is extremely slow and too weak for modern in general. I appreciate the feedback though :)
ijustaguy - Rhonas the Indomitable is great with The Gitrog Monster, but it has no synergy with the land drops, and it's really only good with my frog friend. As for Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, that's a card I might consider, although it feels like it's probably too slow. Khalni Heart Expedition is another interesting one, and with the amount of fetches we run, it could be a good consideration. It fits into the same spot on the curve as Heartless Summoning which is very nice.

I really like this list. I'd consider putting sommething x costed in place of ob nixilis, personally, but thats mostly taste. Villainous Wealth for style kills?
Have you tested Reap Intellect as a sideboard tech? It feels like it could be a 1-hit kill against some of the lower land count decks with the amount of lands you should be stripping with shenanigans.

Oblivion Sower maybe but you need a way to get them into exile first

I think it's a total shame you didn't put Opal Palace in this list, as it allows you to make Grenzo slightly bigger every time your opponents remove him, which boosts the power of his ability, plus it isn't an expensive card. Some other cards I would put on the "maybe" list for this deck would be: Illusionist's Bracers, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Ravenous Chupacabra, Zealous Conscripts, Herald of Leshrac, Neheb, the Eternal, Goblin Charbelcher is just DUMB in this deck, Crucible of Worlds, and maybe Purphoros, God of the Forge.

Vona's Hunger could be better than doom blade or unlicensed disintegration.
Swords to Plowshares might be able to fit in on the budget
Custodi Soulbinders could be fun to swing out on a full board
Magmasaur repeatable board wipe?
Seekers' Squire could explore for value
Banewhip Punisher is repeatable creature kill
Emissary of Sunrise probably to expensive CMC, but i think i like explore in your deck
Grenzo, Dungeon Warden most of your creatures have 2 power, this seems great!
Herald of Leshrac if you wanna be mean, but funny at the same time!
Solemn Recruit could get big fast
Taurean Mauler could get big fast
Vampire Hexmage planswalker hate
Rally the Ancestors could be clever. get your combo into the grave, play this and win!
Mask of Memory help filter your draws
Dauthi Mindripper might be better than delirium skeins
drana, liberator of malakir for budget reasons

Hi, I have a Gitrog deck of my own. What I think would improve your deck:
Mesmeric Orb It's a bit pricey but amazing with gitrog as the milling is done one card at a time.
Gaea's Blessing If you happen to mill it you'll shuffle Graveyard with Library, this is a the third layer of protection to avoid milling myself to death which happened to me several times before with previous builds of this deck.
Key to the City Discard a card to smash your opponent with Gitrog or your biggest creature, was it a land? the draw a card, and another on your upkeep. This card has become a staple of many of my decks.
Roar of Challenge kill up to six creatures of an opponent thanks to Gitrog's Deathtouch.
Constant Mists I almos feel bad using this card with Gitrog... almost!
Spitting Spider and Grotesque Hybrid to have some dissuade flyers of coming my way and another land sac outlet and discard outlet.
Stinkweed Imp another great flyer dissuader with high Dredge, I don't run it anymore on this deck because discarding it over and over to Skirge Familiar and finishing the game with Exsanguinate wasn't my playstyle, so I took most of the dredge and discard outlets.
Herald of Leshrac Hi, can I borrow your land for a while... ups, it broke!
