If you're not already familiar with this deck - the main goal is to discard Griselbrand and/or Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and reanimate them at instant speed using Goryo's Vengeance, the deck has a solid backup plan in the form of Through the Breach as well.

i don't think you can reanimate emrakul because it gets shuffled into the library when you discard it

That's why it's important to note that Goryo's Vengeance is an instant. To reanimate Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, you have to respond to the shuffle trigger when it hits the graveyard.

Love all the Griselvengeance-Variants out there! I think with all that Zoo and Infect around I'd go with -1 Sleight of Hand and +1 Lightning Bolt though. Also, when does Creeping Tar Pit come in handy? To me this would be +1 Molten Slagheap and +1 Steam Vents/Blood Crypt. - Cheers!

Creeping Tar Pit (and also Lightning Bolt) is mostly about getting those last few points of damage in when your opponent is near dead. Amazingly, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn isn't always an instant win.

Maybe add Cathartic Reunion in place of a few sleight of hands or bolts?

Also, since you are playing a bunch of instants and sorceries, you could also play Thing in the Ice  Flip as an alternate win condition.

Is this version of the deck, I've always enjoyed Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip.

Makes it much more resilient.

Amazing deck! Can't wait to put it up together, needs lot of dough though. .

Thought Scour would be a great play in this deck

you can also drop the Lightning Bolt and put in Lava Spike because it is an arcane so you can splice your Goryo's Vengeance with it
