Ashnod's Altar, Soldevi Digger and Priest of Gix, Priest of Urabrask or any token producer. Sacrifice one of the priests to Ashnod's Altar. Put it from the top of your graveyard on the bottom of your library with Soldevi Digger using the mana Altar gave you. Use Grenzo to put the priest back on the field. Get 3 mana. Sacrifice it for 2 mana. Put it on the bottom of your library with Digger. You still have 3 mana. Use 2 mana for Grenzo to put the priest back on the field. Repeat steps for infinite mana. Anything that makes at least one token can also go infinite with this, as you can sacc the tokens to the altar along with the producer. With 2 tokens, you can get infinite mana.
Soldevi Digger and Workhorse - Remove 4 counters from Workhorse, killing Workhorse and getting 4 mana. Put Workhorse on the bottom of your library with Digger. Throw it back out with Grenzo. Repeat steps. With Ashnod's Altar, you can also make infinite mana by removing 3 counters from Workhorse, then saccing it. You then have 5 mana total. Use 4 mana to throw Workhorse back out with Digger and Grenzo and you'll have 1 mana left, so just repeat steps for infinite mana.

Compare that with Worldgorger combo where it's so fragile a Swords to Plowshares sets you back to having no permanents. For Grenzo at least, it might be better to go with some "safer" infinite mana combos, especially since Grenzo doesn't need mana of any color the way Lyzolda does. Stuff like: Basalt+Rings combo, Nooze+Palladium Myr+Pili-Pala, Rings+Voltaic Key, ... Yeah, there aren't a lot of infinite mana combos in Black/Red, are there?
That said, I don't think they're incompatible, since infinite activations of Grenzo make a lot of plays that already use the cards in the Doomsday pile. For example:
Kiki-Jiki, mirror breaker comes out with Grenzo at 2, Zealous Conscripts comes out at 3. Usually you'll just be able to go off with that.
- Or if you don't have access to Doomsday:
- Or if you don't have access to Kiki+Conscripts:
- If you get an infinite combo before casting Grenzo you can also put infinite counters on him, and just get every creature out of your deck.
Even still though, infinite mana combos are always going to be 2 to 3 cards, while Doomsday is a single card. This gives Doomsday a much lower threshold of necessary tutors and set-up, and means that Doomsday should probably remain plan A for the deck.

Wheres Burning-Tree Emissary? I feel this deck could also use another 1 drop mana dork or you can go the routes of

Priest of Urabrask can become a Dark Ritual. If you have Cloudstone Curio and another creature you can cast for free or for 1-2 red mana, you generate both infinite mana and put an infinite number of counters on animar. Even if it takes three red to cast the second creature you still put infinite counters which will likely mean you start generating mana.
Also this seems like a deck where if you resolve Primal Surge you will likely flip a decent amount of cards over.

If you add cards like Phyrexian Altar, and Ashnod's Altar you can add Thornbite Staff for good way to go infinite with Feldon or Kiki Jiki...Also i think you should add Clone Shell cause it is such a good card :) oh yeah and maybe Emrakul's Hatcher or Priest of Urabrask for some extra mana ramp

Could use some work, to be honest. Cards to add:
Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Bloodstained Mire, Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs, Arid Mesa, Priest of Urabrask, Dryad Arbor, Glimpse of Nature, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Emrakul, the Promised End, Sylvan Safekeeper, Primordial Sage, Lotus Petal, Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Worldly Tutor.
Things to cut: Lumbering Falls, Raging Ravine, Jace Beleren, Cinder Glade, the checklands, Mosswort Bridge, Earthcraft, your remaining basics, and most of your large creatures are underwhelming. This deck seems to have the classic Animar problem: too stompy to hold its own at TRULY competitive tables, and too commander-reliant (though that of course comes with the territory in this kind of deck).

Taking a look at this what do you think about replacing Goldnight Castigator with Mogis, God of Slaughter and Purphoros, God of the Forge ? Heartless Summoning allows them in for 2 mana each and they can keep up the pressure in mid game when the deck might run out of steam. Also, Priest of Urabrask gives us lots of mana to play with from abusing the combination of it and HS, giving us 3 red mana from spending 1 red mana. Let me know what you think.
