Hi there, there's certainly some cards that I can suggest which I think are great in the deck:

Overall Yawgmoth is very flexible and you can build him in any direction. I do like your inclusion of torment of hailfire as an alternative win condition!

Ball Lightning just doesn't really do anything, outside of being sac fodder, and I'm really not hurting for good sac fodder.

I definitely agree that I need to make several adjustments to the mana rocks.

Fire Covenant and Rogue's Passage are great suggestions.

I'm probably going to run Aftershock and Bedevil both. Being able to hit lands is sometimes relevant. And giving Greven +3/+0 is not nothing. There are definitely cards in here I could cut over Aftershock.

Malevolent Whispers is only in here because I was running Traitorous Instinct, but I realized the Whispers was a straight upgrade. It's absolutely getting replaced with Tentative Connection as soon as I can get my hands on some Ikoria cards.

And as for Skirge Familiar, that thing has been on the aquireboard basically since I first laid eyes on Greven. I just haven't found one.

cool deck.
maybe Ball Lightning?
also i would run Rakdos Signet over Pristine Talisman. if you are worried about your life total maybe some extra ways to give greven lifelink would be good, like Eternal Thirst or Rush of Vitality or Grotesque Mutation.
also Fire Covenant allows you to pay an arbitrary amount of life to make greven bigger for a Hatred-like effect for only 3 mana. cool.
and Rogue's Passage maybe?
also i feel like you want Bedevil over Aftershock maybe - need that instant speed for your point removal.
same reasoning, i would consider Act of Aggression over Malevolent Whispers? i guess it depends how often you have a discard outlet so that madness is useful. speaking of discard outlets Skirge Familiar is a good one.
anyway just some thoughts keep having fun!

Anvil of Bogardan seems good with madness Apocalypse could be board wipe with madness Avatar of Discord is good value with madness Bog Witch & Skirge Familiargets you mana with madness Bola Warrior synergizes well with creatures like Book Devourer

I see what you mean about the ramp. Not sure mana rocks are where you want to be though. I think you want to be pumping out as many lands as you can as early as you can. Rampant Growth, Cultivate etc. are what I would look at for more ramp. Rituals like Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual are also pretty commonly used in these decks. As far as cuts go, I would suggest World Shaper, not that it's a bad card, but I have generally not been very impressed with it every time it shows up in my games. It's really hard to actually attack with, and you kind of have to jump through hoops for the death trigger. Also if you don't want to go the combo route, you could definitely cut the titans (or at least one of them) and Skirge Familiar as it isn't really great at ramping in the early game and there are much more efficient discard outlets out there. Hope this helps :)

DrValium. Been a while and I've decided to entertain these suggestions. Specifically, I love the idea of using Sadistic Hypnotist. Can you explain how Skirge Familiar would interact if you have a moment? I don't see how it would be good. If just to discard my own cards for black Mana, then I don't think I could afford to add that card. My playgroup targets Grenzo quickly and I would need to keep a hand as well just in case. Unless I'm totally missing the real use of that card. Please help if you can spare a moment. Thanks again for these suggestions. I didn't mean to not respond, I was recovering from surgery and then got into a newer deck for a while. Really wanna get this one tuned better.

Thank you!
