Grubbernaut on Kenrith, the Omnipotent

With Kenny, I like sac effects because it guarantees I can reanimate the creature for value. Fleshbag Marauder, Demon's Disciple, Merciless Executioner, Plaguecrafter, etc.

Bloom Tender is great, as is Phantasmal Image. Of course, Dockside+loops. Ranger-Captain of Eos is great with recursion. Cataclysmic Gearhulk is also a good backup plan for when things go wrong, and easier to reuse because you can sac it to itself. On that note, any of the Altars or other sac outlets are great. There's Peregrine Drake loops, too, and it's also just great for value if you have a cost reducer out for Kenny.

Some cards I think would be worth considering swapping out: Esika, God of the Tree  Flip, Burnished Hart, Ethersworn Adjudicator (IMO, Caustic Caterpillar is best, or Cathar Commando for artifact/enchantment hate), Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Celestial Dawn.

You could probably justify going down on lands if you upped your dork count, which would play really well if you added Ashnod's Altar to use them for mana later. City of Brass is also a pretty budget rainbow land. Chittering Witch is a good source of removal, blockers, or fodder for sac effects. Renegade Rallier and Sun Titan can make for some explosive turns, as well. Shriekmaw is great for targeted removal that can later be reanimated. Cowardice and Willbreaker are more nice effects like Horobi. Fires of Invention can be another effect like Wilderness Reclamation, and doesn't limit Kenny's activations.

But finally, my absolute most favorite card when playing casual Kenny is Final Parting. Basically another Jarad's Orders, but adding Unburial Rites or Priest of Fell Rites makes it a tight package to reanimate a fatty, or tutor one of your enchantments if needed.

Cheers!

Definitely a cool card. Some suggestions:

I like how you're already leveraging the enchantment with grave dumping like Commune and some evoke/undying creatures, but I think you could be running even more creatures like this.

Shriekmaw is so funny. I definitely think you should run some, since you don't really have any removal. For 2 mana, you can return like 2 more shriekmaws from your grave to blow up three creatures and then get some 3/2 bodies.

For the sideboard, Endurance would be very strong grave hate, a lot better than bojuka bog. The price tag definitely isn't ideal though.

Satyr Wayfinder is a great way to dump cards into the graveyard on a creature body. It's a shame it only gets lands, but it still feels very strong here.

Splinterfright is another self mill threat similar to Nyx Weaver but it gets fat as hell.

You'd have to splash red, but casting a Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger for 2 and then getting one back from the grave for free sounds super cool.

Fulminator Mage for tron? Or even for non tron because wiping opponents lands is nice.

Eternal Witness can get back stuff.

Why the singletons? For most decks in Modern you want to be running 4x of the best options, that's how you make the deck consistent. Your deck just seems a bit unfocussed, as an example if I was running Feign Death I'd be running Grief or Shriekmaw something you can actually leverage with the effect.

Have a look at https://www.mtggoldfish.com/metagame/modern#paper it will help you get an idea of the modern meta...

Damn, the creatures in this deck really look like a blast from the past. Shriekmaw, Geist, Tasigur?? (I love Shriekmaw btw)

I've seen esper stoneblade lists with Dakkon before, the card is pretty cool.

I think you could do with a little more threats, since this isn't like esper stoneblade control and more like esper stoneblade midrange. Esper Sentinel is a great proactive t1 play, and usually draws a card even if its removed. With more 1 drops I think you can cut the Thoughtseize and maybe go to 4 IoK.

I recommend cutting the two paths for more Prismatic Ending. Also I recommend cutting Damnation for a second Damn.

Not sure what else to suggest. Solitude maybe? Kaya, Orzhov Usurper can deal with opponent delirium and exile opposing reanimation targets, and also exile ragavan and drc.

Demon519 on M-m-m-m-m-my Muldrotha! That's a bad name.

I bet Evoke cards are really good with Liesa, you already have Grief in there with the discard plan. I'd also recommend Reveillark and Shriekmaw. I'm also a little confused why you added in Font of Mythos into the deck when you are so heavily invested in the discard package. Grim Haruspex would likely be a much better option for you in terms of card draw. I also like Callous Bloodmage
