Pyronic.I might remove Comet Storm, I just don't have any removal in this deck, especially not if I remove my potential multiremoval.

I am going to remove Blade of Selves, Feldon of the Third Path, Hound of Griselbrand, Krenko's Command and Hordeling Outburst... And maybe Rite of the Raging Storm

Both Oblivion Sower and Blight Herder fit quite well into the deck think. I will almost always have a lot of lands exiled (Oblivion Sower also gives me lands that i exiled earlier with Grenzo!) and spawning 3 Eldrazi Scion is pretty good as well. The Scions work both as extra attackers and as extra mana.

Chancellor of the Forge is really awesome at spawning a million tiny hitters lategame (I am going as wide as possible - remember I want many damagetriggers, not just big ones).

Dragonmaster Outcast spawns big flyers, which are very much needed in the deck. They have a lot of damage, but also evasion. Furthermore the deck is pretty vulnerable to flyers and this helps a bit.

Hanweir Garrison spawns hitters every time it attacks, and is therefore really great when I make it unblockable.

Thopter Assembly is also a creature that creates a lot of evasive 1/1's. I will hopefully have haste most of the time, which makes this a lot better.

Cloak and Dagger + Whispersilk Cloak These both give hexproof or shroud to Grenzo, which I need i this deck, as he is essential to the strategy. Whispersilk Cloak also gives unblockable, which is nice.

Tempt with Vengeance Gives a lot a small hitters relatively cheap, which is great for this deck, espicially with something like Goblin War Drums or War Cadence

Mana Flare is something I might remove too... But the ramp is really strong in this deck...

You could power out those cards with Generator Servant and Smokebraider this would allow you to drop a threat through soulstoke such as Liege of the Tangle Nova Chaser or Hound of Griselbrand turn 3. I would reccomend going the full 4 on each as well as a few Mulldrifters and hitting all 4 Primal Beyonds. Ancient Ziggurat is also an option. this would allow you to splash a 3rd or 4th color fairly painlessly. If you are going on this route, ball lightning would be the first to cut. If the combo is really important also add 2-4 Serum Powder.

Wurmlover Would you be okay taking out Green and your planeswalkers to make it sync more, that way instead of Savage Lands, you can run playsets of Dragonskull Summit and Rakdos Guildgate.

-2 Murderous Redcap, for a 4 CMC I think you'll do much better with +2 Falkenrath Aristocrat. You get a flying haste beater with a plus of being a sac outlet to trigger your abilities, while also making her indestructible.

dropping Flayer of the Hatebound to 2 would help with tempo a lot. Also take a look at running a playset of Hellspark Elemental instead of Young Wolf, and take out -4 Hound of Griselbrand for 2 Thunderblust and 2 Faithless Looting. It's all up to you though mate, I've seen this deck change considerably. Your count will be off and will need fine tuning but that's all I got for now. Whatever you decide I'll continue to watch how this deck changes and evolves. +1

I'm finally here. Lets talk cuts:

I'll get to suggestions later.

Elemental Mastery instead of Hound of Griselbrand. Other than Undying/elemental type, Hound is almost a vanilla beater, while Elemental Mastery triggers Omnaths ability more often, and repeatably.

Crypt Champion, Double Cleave, Hound of Griselbrand, Prophetic Flamespeaker, Viashino Slaughtermaster Maybe one of these creatures instead of two headed cerberus?

Browbeat, Sign in Blood For card drawl?
