Please print a new mono-red dragon with an ETB that isn't trash. Zirilan wants new toys and the last good one was Spawn of Thraxes. This set has got me hyped, though.

Why not both? I've a better than 1 in 100 chance of drawing it. Anywho, I'd like to squeeze ALL those cards into this deck. Right now I'm focused on trying to finish it, by adding dragons and measures to protect Krenko or at lease squeeze off his ability once or twice before the opponent KO's him into next week. Thanks for the recommends tho, those would be fantastic adds.

@Adamaro: I've played my deck probably 75+ times and Kilnmouth Dragon may only have been relevant in 1/10 of those but it was very important. You are bound to run into a situation where your hand ends up full of dragons, either from an underwhelming opening hand; an unlucky Dragon Mage/Knollspine Dragon/Wheel of Fortune; or bad draws. In scenarios such as this you can use it draw a lot of cards with Knollspine Dragon, and even if all you can do is tutor it for 15 damage, that is better than being a sitting duck. My deck also utilizes a lot of copy creature/copy ability/untap creature cards so you can get more mileage out of it.
It is also another source of damage for Worldgorger Dragon combos. Sometimes your Scourge of Valkas/Bogardan Hellkite/Spawn of Thraxes will be MIA and you just need a way to deal direct damage to win. Similarly, if those same dragons are MIA, you can use it as a way to kill utility creatures such as Blood Artist/Deadeye Navigator/Seedborn Muse.
I am definitely looking into tuning the deck to have sac outlets so I can add Hoarding Dragon back in. It is what enables the Sword of Feast and Famine/Hellkite Charger combo which should be considered basically non-existent if playing without Hoarding Dragon.
I don't know how I feel about Skyship Weatherlight. It has a very powerful ability but an investment to put a card in hand is approaching untenable, especially since it can potentially be destroyed before you can activate it. If all you need is one card I think Gamble would be the better option, even if you risk losing said card.
The sideboard I have is mostly for when I go to play at my LGS. People are dicks there and like to run Grand Arbiter Augustin IV stax and Zur the Enchanter Doomsday type decks so the anti-blue cards are a necessity there. My group doesn't play much blue so there isn't much reason to have it in there normally.

I guess I should talk about what works good from live testing. I've noticed that with grenzo in play it tends to be mostly effective in a second main phase deck where cards like Maraxus of Keld shine witch I will be adding in eventually. You also need the deck to function just fine without grenzo witch should be easy. So what I've noticed certain cards shined when grenzo was in play cards such as. Zealous Conscripts taking a blocker was good, Spawn of Thraxes killing a blocker was good, Inferno Titan for the same reason, Etched Champion gets through almost always, Avatar of Fury being able to cast it for 2 red is great but a flying 5/5 with a fire breathing built in was great. Hateflayer was especially good for grenzo can attack too and just use its untap ability to get grenzo through and keep him alive. That one I really liked. Hamletback Goliath got so huge so quick. But with Blade of Selves and or Rite of the Raging Storm inot play it was awesome. Sword of Feast and Famine was great. It was perfect. All the Swords were great especially Sword of Vengeance for its Trample and Vigilance mostly.
I played roughly 8 games didn't get to use all the cards but found myself not having and problem with mana. Being able to cast other peopls spells is such a nice quality that you usually find something to make your mana curve work just right. Additionally I found myself have any where from 3 to 5 creatures in play on an average at all times. So that was good. Flying for evasion was good too.
Grenzo allows you to build a mono red deck with creatures however you like. That's the coolest part.

You only have 14 lands and you think you'll ever cast Spawn of Thraxes? I'd replace it with another Bedlam Reveler and cut the 4 shocks for 4 more Mountains so you can play your 2-3 drops on time, and so Shard Volley and Searing Blaze don't just suck. Also, you're not getting to 7 lands, so the Valakuts aren't needed. Replace them with Mountains. 18 lands is the minimum used in most burn decks (both Modern and Legacy), so I'd start there.

I know that there is a drawback, but Goblin Guide is great for early game and you get to see what card your opponent has next. If I had to choose a card to get rid of it would be Spawn of Thraxes because it just doesn't fit the flavor as well. Of course, it's up to you, but I thought I'd just give my thought about it.
Draw well! :D

Nice deck, always good to see mono-red in commander!
Here are some suggestions, if you are interested:
Skirk Alarmist can unmorph Akroma cheaply, but you'll need to sacrifice Akroma after the end of the turn.
Double Strike granters: Berserkers' Onslaught.
