Have you thought about trying to give Zangief Deathtouch and Trample, so he can deal 2 damage to each creature? Would be funny with a Lure or Nemesis Mask. Ohran Frostfang is a nice Deathtouch source and draw source if you've got creatures, Bow of Nylea also makes it easier to kill creatures. There are countless great trample sources in Green, I can point out a few if necessary, including ones like Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma that have lots of other upsides.
Would janky stuff like Akroan Horse make sense here, to give opponents weenies for Zangief to piledrive? If people have a bunch of weenies, you can hit them with a Chandra's Ignition, so Zangief Piledrives stuff for you. Helm of the Host can copy Zangief for you I guess?

I've never thought about this synergy, but would Nyxbloom Ancient allow you to draw more cards with Gilanra? I think the "ability" she gives to her mana should also apply to the additional mana Ancient would give you.

The hard thing about a favourite commander deck is that my favourite changes quite regularly, depending on where my head currently is. My current favourite propably is Moraug, Fury of Akoum, but in general, I think Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma takes the cake. The perfect card for Moraug is the Herald of Valakut I did yesterday, so I'll try something for Goreclaw.
Creatures you control with power 4 or greater have Exploit and "Whenever this creature exploits a creature, untap up to X lands you control, where X is the exploited creatures toughness.
"Power attracts more power. Size attracts greater size. That's how we got to this point. And that's why we had to run into this thing."

My Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma has a little more than 30 creatures, and I have a vizier in there without questions. Considering Chulane's draw ability can easily help you get non-creatures away from the top, you shouldn't have any problem chaining creature after creature after creature with these two on the field.

davidny212 I appreciate you taking the time to check out my deck list out! Your right, it does helps by giving my creatures trample and pumping up my team. The main reason I run Day of Destiny as a back up for when jodah gets removed. Definitely adding Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma in my maybe board. Will most likely add it to the deck, if play testing it goes well. Thanks again for the feedback!

Came back here because I noticed your Baru update. I've had built a Grothama deck in the meantime, but I didn't keep it.
A card I added to Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma a while ago is Crop Rotation. It's awesome to find Reliquary Tower there, and it seems somewhat important here, too, even though Baru doesn't itself draw cards.

Hey, cool list. I think there are a couple of different ways of building Henzie and I feel like you have a couple of different ideas going on here. Here are my thoughts on the different themes you can focus on that synergize with Henzie's abilities:
Cost reduction (making big impactful creature cost as little as possible to cast multiple in a turn every turn) Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, Nylea, Keen-Eyed, Cloud Key, The Immortal Sun, Marauding Raptor, Heartless Summoning, Krosan Drover, Goblin Anarchomancer, Semblance Anvil
"Blink" (lots of undying, persist, and plenty of "Feign Death" effects to maximize etb/dies triggers and keep the creatures after blitz) Cauldron of Souls, Conjurer's Closet, Kaya's Ghostform, Supernatural Stamina, Blood for Bones, Undying Malice, Minion's Return, Demonic Gifts, Abnormal Endurance, Unholy Indenture, Return to Action, Fake Your Own Death, Flayer of the Hatebound, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Puppeteer Clique, Woodfall Primus, Murderous Redcap, Faceless Butcher
Value Town (maximize card advantage, keep the cards flowing, recursion, keep non-creature count low) Guardian Project, The Great Henge, Greater Good, Lifeblood Hydra, Demonlord Belzenlok, Gorex, the Tombshell, Deadwood Treefolk, Acolyte of Affliction, Evolutionary Leap
I think doing a combination of these three things is solid, but I'd recommend focusing on one and trying to keep the game plan somewhat focused. My brew leans towards Value Town.
Things in your current list that I'm a little skeptical of:
Sundial of the Infinite I think since Henzie is only giving us a small mana discount, this would just be used as a weird "your creatures have haste". I think you often want to take advantage of the "when this dies, draw" rather than 1+ mana cost reduction.
Deathreap Ritual This doesn't trigger if your creatures are dying in your end step to blitz, creatures need to die before the end step for the Ritual trigger to go on the stack. Even if that wasn't the case, I feel like it's better in decks where you're the one making sure it's triggering on each of your opponents turns. What Henzie is doing doesn't really help with doing that. I feel like Moldervine Reclamation would be similar in concept, but more synergistic once the deck is going (but I also don't think it's worth an inclusion).
Living Death How are you filling your yard? Henzie doesn't get cards into your yard very quickly. I think the is a card that fits better in decks that are doing plenty of looting and self milling. It's very likely the other graveyard players will benefit more than you when you cast this.
Most of your creatures that are less than 4 cmc don't seem like they do enough with Henzie to take a slot. I think you'd be better off if your CMC<4 mana stuff was non-creatures that ramp and/or setup for your game plan. I can understand the sac outlet ones if you're really taking advantage of the instant speed aspect, but most of the time you're having to sac end of turn anyway, so I think it'd be better to take advantage of the better payoff of the non-creature sac outlets (like Evo Leap, Vampiric Rites, the various Altars, Greater Good, etc.) As far as mana dorks, I feel like 2 mana ramp spells will help more in the long run. I don't think Henzie is powerful enough of a turn 2 play to risk losing mana sources to pings and/or wraths.
All that being said, it's great seeing other peoples takes on Henzie. I've certainly gained a bunch from reading your comment on my decklist and thinking critically about yours. I'll try and keep my list updated as I play it more. It's been a blast so far. If I didn't already have a black based "blink" deck I think I'd probably lean Henzie towards that strat. :)

That is one hell of a deck!
Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma would be a fine addition. Would Colossification and/or Eldrazi Conscription be useful? Unnatural Growth seems perfect here. And finally, how about Exuberant Wolfbear? It's worse than some of your other cards, but the only reason it isn't the legendary bear next to Faren is that it's from the wrong plane.
