Spells you control have ripple 4. (Whenever you cast a spell, you may reveal the top four cards of your library. You may cast any revealed cards with the same name as the spell without paying their mana costs. Put the rest on the bottom of your library.)

Im trying the same idea but with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , attack, they block, you sacrifice a rat and all lose life.
Same as you....Fear, Trample and trying to draw cards as fast as you can.
Don't have Thrumming Stone so my deck is a lot slower =(

Thanks for the comment on my Grenzo deck.
Love the rats theme, as it's definitely very flavourful for a dungeon warden.
The major difference I find between our two lists is that yours appears to be much more aggressive than mine wants to be. I want to continuously re-suse controlling etb effects of cards like Meteor Golem and Ravenous Chupacabra , and then combo out somehow.
I do like that you've found a use for Thrumming Stone , as it's potentially a great way to stack the bottom of the library, which my deck definitely wants to do. I find a lot of Grenzo decks just want to use his ability as many times as possible, just to see whats on the bottom. I definitely do that, but love it when I can stack the bottom, for some really great reactive plays - also rewards the decisions you make, as you stack the last few cards of your library. Though it makes me wonder if you should be running more rats though, to potentially go off with casting a bunch of rats for free, whilst bottoming key cards?
I also had a hard rule when deck building - I want to be able to recur anything from my graveyard - hence, I have included no enchantments, and only 1 sorcery I can't get back from the GY. How do you find running so many enchantments? I guess that's what Magus of the Will is for, but I'm curious how that's working for you.
Also like the inclusion of Garna, the Bloodflame - I wanted to put her in mine, but decided to go for other forms of recursion, as I want to cheat mana costs with Grenzo as much as possible. With the inclusion of Thrumming Stone , casting from the hand may be more ideal than just flipping it off the bottom though, which is cool.

The idea started with gagging the power level of what a Persistent Petitioners should be. My play group largely consists of mostly highly tuned deck with power level around 8, so I want to build a deck that is able to survive and thrive in my group. But clearly a mill strategy is not that strong in EDH, so I went with a group hug mill route and play the politics. Since the difference in power at the beginning is so big, most players won't pay much attention to you. Plus mass card drawn is the most successful feel good strategy for group hug and with enchantments discouraging other player from targeting you and card draw in some way is just another to mill your opponents and with adviser mill to carry the deck in the final stretch of the race everything starting to take shape and form the basis of this deck. After play testing I realize I don’t need that many Persistent Petitioners because the best way to use petitioners is to hold it in your hand until in the last stretch when you see a opening or disrupt a player’s win con that has to do with the library therefore no need to cards like Bloodbond March , Wood Sage , Thrumming Stone etc. Instead I added counterspells for other’s win con disruption and my own jinky combo like Mindcrank Duskmantle Guildmage and Phyrexian Unlife Solemnity to increase my win percentage if I get to the final 1v1. This deck is ablt to get second play fairly consistantly and from time to time that mill strategy does work if game is longe. Overall I'm happy with what I got here and by sharing with the community helping ti get more feedback to improve and learn. Please work together and try to build the perfect Persistent Petitioners deck.

Thrumming Stone would be very good. I'm trying to get it running w/o it for now, and if it does what I want then I will add it. Ditto with removal and counterspells. I want to see what it falls short to.
Been gold fishing it a lot this past week. Stay tuned for updates... :)
Some notes: Mana dorks are really good here. If you goldfish this deck, you need to remember to use petitioners first ability when you can see your top deck to assure draws from momir's second ability.
