Got two in my artifact/scarecrow deck. And yes, the aforementioned combo with Master Transmuter is both fun and hate-able. The interaction between the two has saved me more than once from a trampling nasty like Terra Stomper that the deck ordinarily has a hard time dealing with. Best part about it is that if you leave blue mana open, you can do it at instant-speed. Great art, great flavor, good card all-around.

Combine Grim Poppet with an old blue card 'Unstable Mutation', Unstable mutation generally sucks but with Grim it's awesome, each turn Grim becomes a 7/7 PLUS gets a -1/-1 counter each turn, so you can just wither away their forces! Though once they got no creatures... Lol... But then his job is done for the time lol, until a new one hits the field.. And you got quite a few turns before Grim will wither away.

Splinter Twin this with the Reaper King in play. Sure it's as costly and silly as it is unlikely, but a vindicate plus a puncture blast plus a colorless silverback ape attacking each turn is pretty cool.

Two of these + a Doubling Season makes an infinite counter combo XD.

Has anyone noticed how similar this card is to Triskelion? It's basically a toned-down version. Grim Poppet can't deal damage to players, but it does a better job of killing creatures, since -1/-1 counters can't be prevented. I'm sure this card is a blast to use with Master Transmuter.

Grim Poppet could also benefit from Sinking Feeling, Torture, or Unstable Mutation.
