Whew, so now that I'm a bit more rested: Since the deck is quite dependent on Greven to work, how do you feel about Sanctum of Eternity ? I think it's a pretty dependable answer to enchantment-based interaction (e.g. Song of the Dryads & Treachery ) and indefinite non-enchantment stealing (e.g. Gilded Drake ).

Thank ya! I am a fan of Moldervine Reclamation mainly because I wanted to slot something in that was the same CMC as Black Market that still provided advantages to the deck while on a budget. I don't think any of the new cards appeal to me yet besides Sanctum of Eternity from C19, but some of the reprints surely do. Beacon of Unrest getting reprinted again is nice and so is Grimoire of the Dead . Both were above the $3-$5 mark so hopefully we will see the prices drop more for them as well as Solemn Simulacrum , Sol Ring , Lightning Greaves and some other staples. That would be very nice.
Godzerker To answer your question I think you could slide Phyrexian Arena in for Moldervine Reclamation , or Smothering Abomination , or even a basic land. I think you could make it work. Just never drop below 36 lands.
Are there any Commanders that you guys are interested in lately? I know I have been looking to revamp my WG token deck with a RWG deck. I am also thinking about brewing Morph and a Landfall deck.

Atla seems very weak. The ability to combo with the Stalactite and Altar is like any 3-card combo with one piece being a commander. Unless the combo pieces tutor for each other, are able to all be tutored by a separate card, or the commander can tutor for at least one of the pieces, or the combo is 1-3 mana entirely, the combo isn't reasonably viable on a general basis.
Elsha seems... kind of bad? It is a combo enabler with Top, and Flash, no reveal, only noncreature Future Sight seems okay, but a 5 mana creature variant that any Swords to Plowshares or counterspell can deal with seems weak. Maybe with enough protection, such as Silence type effects, the deck can just be a combo deck with Elsha as a piece, but as a Storm Engine, I doubt it will be able to reliably go off without too little protection. Maybe a midrange combo deck in the realms of tier 2-3.
Anje Falkenrath can cycle through all madness cards for free really fast. I am sure there are some ways to abuse this. I don't know any off of the top of my head, but a Razaketh, the Foulblooded reanimator plan seems reasonable. Just run normal b/r tutors, a few reanimation spells, rakazeth, the combo you plan to use him with, and then lands and fill the rest with madness enablers and fast mana, I'd imagine you could do well with it, not entirely sure. Maybe there is a doomsday line as well, like another Grenzo.
Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero is apparently a good eggs commander, but I haven't seem any list. Ichor Wellspring , Krark-Clan Ironworks , etc do seem to have the proper synergies for a sweet list though.
Chainer, Nightmare Adept seems possibly decent. Buried Alive for Zealous Conscripts , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , and Phyrexian Delver might be a thing, but I am not sure how much I am a fan of that. It may just be a decent value engine like Elsha.
Pramikon, Sky Rampart is a reasonable include into some decks to fight Tymna the Weaver , kind of a Silent Arbiter effect, able to deal well with some blood pod decks in the meta, but isn't really a commander for cEDH, unless if Spark Double , Sakashima the Impostor , or Helm of the Host for no attacks at all seems useful.
I may go over the other cards more indepth, like the legendaries, but for now:
Cliffside Rescuer , Backdraft Hellkite , Mandate of Peace , Road of Return , Sudden Substitution , Sanctum of Eternity , Leadership Vacuum , Sevinne's Reclamation , Selesnya Eulogist , Mire in Misery, Selesnya Eulogist , and Bone Miser seem posssible, but Dockside Extortionist is the best of them by far.
No data for this card yet.
