Although Grixis isn't the greatest color for ramp, using a few rocks with Thraximundar in a control deck can be pretty cool... Throw in a few cards like Killing Wave , Archfiend of Depravity , Torment of Hailfire or whatever and have fun...

This leaves you with 114 cards. Though I didn't really consider curve when I made these cuts so I don't know what will happen to that. Regardless, this would be my first pass at cuts.

I really like the idea of making an EDH deck that's focused on all three HoD Gods. However, I don't think Nekusar, the Mindrazer is a good choice here. The only remotely effective way of playing Nekusar is to play that one-of Nekusar card drawing/burn deck you always see with him. Any other deck (including this one), you may as well pick literally any other Grixis commander. Thraximundar, Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, etc. Nekusar's abilities are gone to complete waste in this deck. I would highly recommend swapping him out.
Love the originality of the deck, +1.

It's funny; I have a similar history in the EDH format as you. I started out (if you can count it) making a stupid mash of my decks/cards to make a Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper with Savra and some weird token generation and a lot of sack outlets. After that night, I decided Golgari was the way to go, and I ordered that Izzet v. Golgari deck, and built Jarad. I think I'm probably a Johnny at heart so as soon as I started using the Dredge mechanic, I found it intriguing, building a Savra stacks Dredge deck with cards like Possessed Portal and Vengeful Pharaoh. It was fun, but hard to win with. I inadvertently created my first infinite combo and realized that's where its at. I went back to Jarad, took a tip or two from my Thraximundar zombie tribal, and Frankenstein'ed my Savra. I stayed with this deck as my main for a while, till Sidisi, Brood Tyrant came out. I saw Dredge as a viable mechanic in EDH and went for it. Iv'e tweaked it a lot since then, but the brother sister combo of Jarad and Savra have always had a place in my heart and decks.

My decks came the day after they were released. I have SOOOO many cards I have to sift through and choose which ones NOT to put in my deck. Lol
One thing I saw, it may not be tribal, but it synergizes well, and that's Thraximundar with all the saccing of tokens, it's not a bad pick.

Gotta run as many cards that cost ungodly amounts of mana but are stupid powerful, cuz in this deck you can do it for 2B
Ones i see missing, some of which are just due to recent print

Well the best advice I can honestly give for consistency is definitely more lands. At least 3-6 more. I know it sucks taking cards out, but believe me you wanna be able to hit land drops every turn if you want to play stuff like Thraximundar, Platinum Angel or Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker. For added consistency, tutors definitely help a million. You have demonic tutor, which is a fantastic start, but also consider stuff like Diabolic Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Increasing Ambition, or just the classic Vampiric Tutor if budget isn't a problem. If you want to make it more competitive, then also consider some infinite combos. In Grixis you have insanely good options such as Palinchron and Deadeye Navigator for infinite mana, Zealous Conscripts/Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch and Splinter Twin/Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker for infinite hastey combat damage, or just any Doomsday pile with your wincon being Laboratory Maniac. And those are just a very few that are quite popular! Personally I'm all about value decks, but I firmly believe every EDH deck should always have an infinite combo that can win on the spot. It doesn't necessarily have to be what the main focus of the deck is either, but regardless something that can close out a game immediately so you and your play group can get onto the next game, I think, should always be something heavily considered. Anyway I'm digging how spell heavy the deck is, and I'm positive it's a ton of fun to play with then it gets going! Hopefully I could be of some help!
