Alms Collector + wheel of your choice. Wheel of Fortune Winds of Change Reforge the Soul Wheel of Fate Memory Jar . The alms collector is strong against decks that draw cards, and wheels are powerful even without the bonus lockout and draw from the alms collector.
Goblin Welder + Memory Jar . At the cost of an sacrifice an artifact you get to draw 7 cards a turn that you get to abuse better than your opponent due to them leaving EOT. Welder has big potential for abuse with other cards, and can recur pieces of the combos you've already mentioned. Memory Jar is used with Alms collector and has the words "Draw 7 cards on it" outside of combo usage.
Kor Spiritdancer / Mesa Enchantress / Sram, Senior Edificer + Mark of Fury / Flickering Ward . Mark of fury is obviously better and easier to slot, but Flickering Ward serves as reusable protection for creatures you want to survive a round or two, and if it resolves you can stop yourself getting 2-for-1'd by returning it to hand. Similar situation with Kor Spiritdancer and the enchantress, one is obviously better but if you're running this engine your deck is going to be wanting enchantments anyways (maybe some future enchantress damage commander?) to benefit extra value of enchantresses. Either way, enchantress + Mark of fury is a draw every turn for just
Astral Slide or Astral Drift + Seasoned Pyromancer is very bonkers. You obviously put it into a cycling deck. You pay 1 for the cycle to draw 1, then get 2 loots from the pyromancer while getting 2 critters. Digging 3 deep while keeping 1 is better than Burning Inquiry or Faithless Looting , and you get up to 2 tokens. Another deck specific engine, despite being fantastic. There's also the new red Tectonic Reformation to GREATLY improve this build. Honestly you could probably mash this together with the enchantress one for a laugh.
Enduring Renewal + Phyrexian Altar + creature of your choice gets some interesting effects. Mesa Enchantress + Hopeful Eidolon / Nyxborn Rollicker lets you draw through. Seasoned Pyromancer lets you filter a LOT of cards and build a large board of tokens. Insolent Neonate lets you filter through your entire library. Thraben Inspector gives you an infinite amount of clues for draws. Priest of Urabrask gives infinite mana, which isn't draws but relevant to Altar
Enduring Renewal has other combo options outside Altar or draws. Priest of Urabrask + free sac outlet is infinite sacs, great with something like Altar of the Brood or Altar of Dementia . Renewal can also loop with free sac outlets with 0 cost creatures.

Prolly not Predict. I remember the predict combo tho:
It is pretty simple.
The line is draw+cast+activate Grenzo, then flip priest, get 3, use 2 for activation, hit Kiki, copy, priest, have 4, activate again, hit sledder, then sacrifice sledder to itself targeting Grenzo, so it is a 3/3, activate again, hit Conscripts, untap Kiki, go infinite, swing, win.

Wasn't sure if these counted as dorks but I felt like they did because of other examples on the list.

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.

So if you like weird combos, and aren't opposed to infinite combos, you can run Priest of Gix , Priest of Urabrask , and Viscera Seer or any sac outlet, with epitaph on the field and heartstone (assuming you also have grenzo on the field) to produce inifnite mana. ex: grenzo ability for 1. priest to field, 3 mana. sac priest to sac outlet, activate epitaph. 2 mana. activate grenzo. 1 mana. priest to field. 4 mana. I had a janky grenzo deck and this takes me back when it was able to be played. you can also either go really big, near infinite, or infinite with workhorse and end up cutting out the sac outlet. There's infinite etb or death triggers which zulaport loves. maybe put in Blood Artist and/or Falkenrath Noble as they do the same thing as zulaport. I am all for redundancy in a deck because it creates consistency which is extremely important. I would suggest doing a jank Doomsday build but frankly, if you're building doomsday, you might as well go competitive with the deck. Murderous redcap loves ashnod's altar with this jank. And as a final food for thought, maybe run a few utility creatures, Crystal Ball and/or Darksteel Pendant for scrying to get creatures to bottom for grenzo, and utility creatures like Ravenous Chupacabra or Vampire Hexmage for some spot removal and utility against planeswalkers. Definitely getting an upvote my dude! if you want any deck suggestions or help on the deck, message me if you'd like!

The piles are flexible.
Priest of Gix or Priest of Urabrask or Overeager Apprentice + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (tap to make a copy of the priest) + Goblin Sledder or Mogg Raider (sac to itself to give Grenzo +1/+1 until the end of turn) + Zealous Conscripts (untap Kiki and make infinite Conscripts)
Priest of Gix or Priest of Urabrask or Overeager Apprentice + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (tap to make a copy of the priest) + Skirk Prospector + Murderous Redcap (sac Redcap and Kiki to Prospector and with Redcap's Persist trigger on the stack use Grenzo's ability again) + Metallic Mimic (the +1/+1 from Mimic will cancel out -1/-1 from redcap's persist for infinite direct damage when sacrificed to Prospector).

Doomsday has the most amazing synergy with Grenzo's ability. Cast Doomsday and build the pile from the bottom up starting with Priest of Gix or Priest of Urabrask, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, (tap Kiki to make a copy of the priest), Mogg Raider or Goblin Sledder (sacrificed to itself to give Grenzo +1/+1 until end of turn) and then Zealous Conscripts (targeting and untapping Kiki starting the Kiki/Conscripts infinite). You can also use a similar Doomsday pile with Metallic Mimic, Murderous Redcap and Skirk Prospector.

@hkhssweiss: All right. I suppose I can deal w/ those two; at least they're better than (Insert Boros Partner Duo from Battlebond.). That said; It'll be nuts if I can switch the 99 to 98. If Aurelia is to be removed from the equation, I wonder how these two can be useful for a Value Town/Stax/Prison Deck. Oh, and more questions; should you choose to accept them:
As I'm using Rule of Law/Eidolon of Rhetoric, what cards do you think would work well w/ them in a cEDH environment? I currently have Possibility Storm + Knowledge Pool, but I believe I can think of better while lowering CMC.
Tamiyo's Journal + Thraben Inspector seems Sketchy for a combo; though Inspector seems useful on his own; but what card to use if Tamiyo's Journal is too much? I mean ALL the Artifact Tutors seem too hefty; & nobody likes them in the slightest, even in Boros...
What do you think of the following?: Panharmonicon/Strionic Resonator (Doubling ETB/CIP effects seems great here...), Prototype Portal + Ugin's Nexus/Lotus Petal (Infinite Turns is rarely thought about, but I dunno about Petal on its own...), Aegis of the Gods (I probably am the only one here who thinks this is good...), Paradox Engine (What? I don't even run Isochron Scepter for something Ugin's Nexus can do better.), Farrelite Priest (Err... Better than Gold Myr? At least has a Dork...), Priest of Urabrask (ETB w/ Red's idea of Dark Ritual is always a good thing.), Spirit of the Labyrinth (IMO, the only thing Boros has to the Chains of "What the Hell is your name you friggen n00b! God..."), Palace Sentinels (Monarch is great, but I want to ask: Does Flickering or even Recurring them automatically make another, currently the Monarch give the role to me again? If not, this is a cut.), Goblin Chainwhirler (Damaging foes is great & all; all while NOT targeting them, but is this still worth it?), Grafdigger's Cage/Ashes of the Abhorrent (Some of the best of this deck. But it also locksdown Fiend Hunter + Sun Titan in some ways. Chop it?), Resplendent Mentor (Most o the creatures here are anyway, but since you Mentioned Treasonous Ogre, why would one think he's better than Priest of Urabrask? Gaining life will only make you a primary target for Dethroned...), Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite (7 Drop, & powerful as a staple. Is she worth keeping though?), &... that's it I guess... I wonder what your thoughts on this is; as I need to drop to less than CMC 2 anyway... Now if you don't mind, I'm Switching Commanders (Again...). Now I have 98 problems to deal with...
