I like Grenzo decks. Here's a couple of cards I thought might work well with your build. Junktroller and Reito Lantern give you more copies of the Epitaph Golem effect. Heartstone will let you use his ability two times as much, as long as you're okay with it helping your opponents, too.

As it currently stands, your deck could use more creatures in order to use Grenzo's ability better. With only 20 creatures, you'll whiff 3 out of 4 times. There are lots of creatures who have similar abilities to cards in your deck. Here are some examples.

Dark Ritual and Priest of Gix or Priest of Urabrask

Dictate of Erebos and Butcher of Malakir

Any burn spell and Murderous Redcap , Flametongue Kavu , Flayer of the Hatebound (please, please, please add this card)

Any kill spell and Nekrataal , Meteor Golem , and Shriekmaw

Expedite and Ogre Battledriver

Scouring Sands and Siege Dragon or Dagger Caster

Nice deck, I run a similar Animar deck but with more emphasis on cloudstone type bounce. I do however have several suggestions and I'll try to break it down by category.

Card Draw: Beast Whisperer and Glimpse of Nature .

Bounce Enablers: Temur Sabertooth , Tidespout Tyrant , and Equilibrium .

Bounce Targets: Great Whale and Palinchron .

And...: Spellseeker , Heroic Intervention , Ogre Battledriver , Momir Vig, Simic Visionary , and Draining Whelk

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Spellseeker deserves a spot. Looks up Glimpse of Nature, Tutors, Weird Harvest, etc.

I'd also find room for haste enablers like Urabrask the Hidden and Ogre Battledriver to make your threats immediate and turn all your mana dorks turn into Cloudstone combo pieces.

I love Animar... it's a weird relationship. I have several suggestions for you and I'll try to break it down by category. I'd suggest dropping several of your non-creature spells to find room for similar abilities on legs.

Card Draw: Primordial Sage , Tishana, Voice of Thunder , and Glimpse of Nature if it's in your budget.

Ramp: Sakura-Tribe Elder , Somberwald Sage , Shaman of Forgotten Ways , and Rishkar, Peema Renegade . Beastcaller Savant also works like any morph/eldrazi for Cloudstone combos. Bloom Tender is amazing if you can afford one.

Counter Doubling: Pir, Imaginative Rascal .

Turn 2 Animar: Wild Cantor and Exploration .

Haste Enablers: Ogre Battledriver and Urabrask the Hidden . Turns all your mana dorks into Cloudstone combo pieces and everything else into immediate threats.

Nice deck. I do have a few suggestions though. I'll try to break it down by category.

Card draw: Primordial Sage and Tishana, Voice of Thunder .

Bounce Enablers: Equilibrium and/or Tidespout Tyrant . Both can be used to bounce opponents stuff also.

Turn 2 Animar: Exploration and Wild Cantor .

Haste Enablers: Ogre Battledriver and Urabrask the Hidden . Turns all your mana dorks into cloudstone combo pieces and immediate threats.

Board Protection/Interaction: Draining Whelk , Stratus Dancer , Glen Elendra Archmage , and Heroic Intervention .

Last is Spellseeker to look up Cyclonic Rift, Glimpse of Nature, Pact of Negation etc.

Very similar to my Animar list. Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Misc.: Drop - Angler Drake, Exclusion Mage, Ezuri's Archers, Filligree Familiar, Mercurial Chemister, Ornithopter, Spawnwrithe, Pelt collector, Tilonalli's Summoner, Warbreak Trumpeteer, and Wildfire Eternal. Add- Cloud of Faeries , Great Whale , Temur Sabertooth (and Equilibrium / Tidespout Tyrant mentioned above), Fierce Empath , Den Protector , Stratus Dancer , Ainok Survivalist , Ogre Battledriver , and Momir Vig, Simic Visionary .

Also, you 100% need to put Ancestral Statue in. Targets itself with its' own ETB and goes infinite due to eventually costing nothing to cast.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

TheGeneralAdvisor thank you very much for your considerations, you have given me a lot of food for thought.

I agree with your view that Wheel of Fate probably doesn’t earn the place. The more tuned the deck has become, the more suspend has been situational (need to cast it in the first few turns otherwise it’s a dead card). This might be a good cut to try Apex of Power . My only reservation is ten mana is a significant investment as would normally be expecting to win (or have been knocked out) by then. Certainly worth trying though!

If I could afford a Gauntlet of Might I would definitely swap out Extraplanar Lens . I have lost count the number of times that it has ramped me to a win when the early game had been thwarted. I also plan to pick up a Grim Monolith just to tune/speed the deck up a bit.

Goblin Bushwhacker is always cast for its kicker cost as a 2-mana, single turn haste enabler to combo off. Goblin Ringleader is a holdover from when it was more tribal based deck, and your probably right it needs removing. Moggcatcher is there to tutor up Skirk Prospector or one of the haste enabling goblins. With this list’s lack of tutors, I would definitely think she earns the spot to stay.

I used to run Aggravated Assault , but took it out to lower the curve. Now that the deck has lots of ways to produce infinite mana, I think it may be worth testing again.

I have tried Anger but could never consistently get it in the bin and don’t have space to dedicate for it to work. Hopefully a more efficient haste enabler than Ogre Battledriver comes in time and I will drop it.

I love the idea of extra turns, it’s not something I have given any thought to. I have picked up both Final Fortune and Last Chance and will start playtesting!

Thank you so much man, your comment was awesome!
