Really cool list! Plying Greven is so much fun, if you one shot an opponent out of nothing with Hatred and stuff. Sadly he isn't a top tier cEDH commander, but he has so much flavour. But if you really want to play him on a cEDH table you need a bit more interaction:

Sorry for the double post but I can't edit the first.

I searched for the sentence "no cards in hand" and found some usefull things.

Modern has a bunch of efficient 1 drops and cards that care about artifacts. Even on a budget there are cards like Ardent Recruit / Toolcraft Exemplar , Shrapnel Blast , Galvanic Blast , Dispatch etc.

The vehicle most likely to see play, oddly enough, might be Consulate Dreadnought , if there are high-power creatures that can't attack (like ahmonket gods, Slumbering Dragon or Lupine Prototype ) right now though, everything falls just shy.

I'd focus on playing 1 and 2 cost spells, with creatures that can reach 3 power to crew or attack turn 2/3, and burn spells (shrapenel blast and boros charm) to finish up. Heart likes turn 3 plainswalkers, so I'd hunt through the list of three drop walkers to drop something somewhat efficient- Saheeli, Sublime Artificer might make the cut, as copying an animated dreadnought is pretty scary.

I'm not sure about glacial/scrying sheets- Into the north is slow, scrying sheets takes you off of desperately needed coloured mana and glacial refills your hand, but can't pick up gas (most creatures non-snow), so Winding Way or Once Upon a Time might be stronger. They are great cards if you want to be midrange, but this is a zoo list.

Since your creatures mostly care about forests (sorry wild nacatyl), you might look at increasing the forest count and running more artifact fixing ( Springleaf Drum , Chromatic Sphere , Navigator's Compass , Paradise Mantle ), which would also let you pick up Shrapnel Blast to finish games. While I'm mentioning burn options, I have seen Tribal Flames in non budget versions of these lists- representing ten points of burn from flames/blast will win games.

There is also the option of trying to make your creatures mostly playable with green mana (like Sunblade Elf , Lupine Prototype or Soultether Golem ), then cast Lush Growth / Nylea's Presence or get a singleton Sacred Foundry off Flower / Flourish . This is a bit more fragile.

If you want to go harder into snow-matters, Boreal Druid and Coldsteel Heart offer ramp, while Frostwalk Bastion is a decent manland, but that will look more like a midrange value list (eventually becoming another Ice-Fang Coatl list, and less like zoo, and may call for dropping to two colours on a budget.

If you do want to move up in CMC, Knight of New Alara offers multicolour-matters synergy, while the Naya Hushblade cycle isn't awful.

Lupine Prototype may be great here. swap 2 smallpox for 2 lupines maybe. also look at Lightning Skelemental . it cost 3 and because your curve is so low you could easily swap with a 1 drop. cool deck

I remember this deck. I always thought Spark Elemental would make a good push for this deck. Rancor might be another good way to milk those dies triggers while still getting value out of it. If this deck is fast at emptying the hand you might find either Lupine Prototype or Rhonas's Last Stand helpful.
