Personally, I would just remove as many instants and sorceries as possible. I would keep the removal ones, but the cards like Fortuitous Find , Scouring Sands , Warp World , Grave Birthing , Expedite , Incinerate , Lightning Bolt , and Lightning Strike aren't very strong for a creature-based commander. Burn spells just can't kill the threats present in commander, and cheap cantrips aren't necessary because your commander itself is a cantrip once you get enough creatures into your deck. I know it's tempting to get instants and sorceries back that Grenzo chucks into the graveyard, but outside of Past in Flames , I would try to keep the deck more focused towards creatures. It's better to make better use of Grenzo's ability to cheat in creatures then try to shore up his weakness of whiffing on other spells.

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

Suggestions for updates.

Pyretic Ritual or Desperate Ritual + Isochron Scepter + Paradox Engine = Infinite Red mana + Infinite Untap triggers for everything except lands.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Kormus Bell + Scouring Sands or Savage Alliance =

Deals 1 damage to each creature your opponents control & destroy all of their lands (provided they are still 1/1 swamps. Naturally either Scouring Sands or Savage Alliance can be replaced with a each creature spell if you've got alternative ways of getting mana, at the cost of your own lands. Few will expect this or see it coming in a red deck and it's EDH legal.)

Krenko, Mob Boss + Mana Echoes + Umbral Mantle = Infinite Tokens + Purphoros, God of the Forge = Infinite Damage

Stuffy Doll + Pariah's Shield = Redirect all damage dealt to you, to Stuffy Doll, which redirects to target opponent.

Ensnaring Bridge + Bottled Cloister = Opponents can't attack you when it's not your turn, + Darksteel Forge protects the artifacts from destroy effects.

Glacial Chasm + Eon Hub = Prevents all damage dealt to you / players no longer have upkeeps (so you're not having to pay life to the Chasm)
