Nice deck. My only question is why is Treasonous Ogre your commander?

+1 from me.

I'm surprised no Cabal Coffers to really burst up the mana.

Always good to add some damage multipliers like Temur Battle Rage, Unleash Fury, Fiery Emancipation (though it's a bit pricey unless you've got Treasonous Ogre there to help you out on the costs).

Also fun to combo it up with things to copy your extra combat cards like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Splinter Twin.

Tentative Connection is a great ol' "one turn steal and sack" trick that synergizes amazingly with Greven, but there's one more that I throw in so I can have more fun: Act of Aggression. I'd give up some of those homespun sacrifice targets and enjoy sacrificing other people's creatures! ;-)

On the life gain side of things, you gotta want Exquisite Blood no? Throw in a Tree of Perdition and you can do horrible, horrible things to people: the Tree swaps their health down to 13, and that counts as life gain for you, and then you sack the Tree, giving up all that life you just gained, but now Greven is this unholy monster that just levels the playing field (and ironically, if that wasn't lethal, you'll get back all the life loss they get again). It also pairs similarly with Heartless Hidetsugu (though the Whip of Erebos you've got already in there makes it work well enough).

Some things are just better in graves, like Filth and Anger... and if you aren't going to have much in the way of reanimators, Necrotic Ooze comes in handy... just in case someone somehow dodged a bullet with the first use of Tree of Perdition's active ability... now you can try taking them down to 3 health! ;-)

I also like having Squee, the Immortal and Gravecrawler around to give me cheap card draw, and Rekindling Phoenix for a bit more juice in "immortal" sacrifice targets.

Pro-tip if you play multi-player games: the myriad mechanic is your friend. Banshee of the Dread Choir and Warchief Giant let you trigger any ETB effects, and then you can play politics with your opponents trading favours for which token you are going to sacrifice to boost Greven.

I love pairing Greven with Flayer of the Hatebound as you do. Even more fun is bringing in K'rrik's old man, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, because at the cost of 1 life (yeah! Greven and Font of Agonies get even more charged up!, and a minion sacrifice, you can cancel out that +1/+1 counter so that you can keep sacrificing the Flayer each round.

One more fun thing that can add chaos into everything is Brash Taunter. Not only is he a great blocker, but If you've got Fiery Emancipation out, you can use Soul's Fire and then have Brash Taunter be the target, who then redirects to your opponent... with the damage tripling on each hop, for 9x damage from Greven's power after he's done a sacrifice... and that's not counting his actual attack damage.

Sundial of the Infinite could be used to keep the pig's friends in play. Activate it when the delayed return to hand trigger goes on the stack, fizzling the trigger and keeping the creature on the field.

You might like these too: Conjurer's Closet (works similar to sundial), Voyager Staff, Seize the Day, Fiendish Duo, It That Betrays, Minion Reflector, War Elemental, Treasonous Ogre, Helm of the Host, Knollspine Dragon, Ogre Battledriver, Dockside Extortionist, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Rapacious One, Chancellor of the Forge

-1 Daretti, Scrap Savant

-1 Goblin Trashmaster

+1 Dockside Extortionist

+1 Deflecting Swat

So in an effort to get more ramp and interaction, I have to start cutting good cards that are just simply not strong enough.

For Daretti, although he is a great engine, in dozens and dozens of games I have only activated him twice a few times, so for his cost and the slot he takes up at least in my meta he isn't good enough.

For Trashmaster, in this deck his first ability doesn't matter hardly ever, and his second ability is good, but not 4 CMC and on a stick good.

I also would like to add Treasonous Ogre for more ramp (or maybe Chrome Mox instead?), and for some recursion Underworld Breach. Opinions on the current list and what feels like the "weakest" cards? I think I'm past the point of having bad cards now, and have to judge things on which is the "least good".

Treasonous Ogre & Geode Golem are going to be your best cheaters to fast play this commander.
11 mana although do able will require a exact opening hand that will probably never happen

TriusMalarky xD I'm pretty sure Treasonous Ogre is more efficient than Dramatic Reversal+Isochron Scepter, for card purposes at least.

Nah, TriusMalarky Zacama facilitates multiple infinite mana combos, without blue just fine, such as Temur Sabertooth and Sanctum of Eternity with enough lands or mana generated by lands.

Dockside Extortionist is probably a great card in the deck, comboing with Temur Sabertooth and additionally as a value piece on your own. I mean theoretically dependent on board state all you need, Omniscience is life is a Lotus Petal or a Spirit Guide and a land and you could have 11 mana turn one with a Dockside Extortionist.

More realistically:

Lotus Petal/Elvish Spirit Guide -> Mana Vault/Mana Crypt -> Simian Spirit Guide/Lotus Petal -> Treasonous Ogre -> Sungrass Prairie -
