No one sees the Haunted Mansion reference? Grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize~

Reassembling Skeleton seems like good food for him. He's crazy if you find a way to give him vigilance.

Holy shit, it's the Leviathan clause. I didn't think I'd see that for a long time.

The middle ability seems like a combo piece. Note that it also appears in mono-black in Black Carriage (yes, in Homelands) if you don't care that you have to do it during your upkeep.

Tangleroot, Reassembling Skeleton, Ashnod's Altar and Bog Initiate gives you infinite black mana to infinitely sac Reassembling Skeleton to Grimgrin.
There's also the Thopter Foundry combo: Thopter Foundry, Krak-Clan Ironworks and Sword of the Meek. This'll give you infinite 1/1 tokens that you can infinitely sacrifice to Grimgrin (and infinite life and mana).
Hmm.. 2 Myr Retrievers, Tangleroot and a Krak-Clan Ironworks perhaps? In all cases, you could probably use the infinite combo for something better; hit your opponent for 1 million with Consume Spirit, swing with a billion thopter tokens on your next turn or replace Tangleroot with Desciple of the Vault :/

In itself, Grimgrin c... (see all)

Pretty big lulzy legend. Fun with good ol' Necrotic Ooze, along with Bloodline Keeper and Trespassing Souleater :D

Zombie Shenanigans in EDH
Grimgrin, Corpse-Born
Rooftop Storm
Diregraf Captain
Drop Rooftop Storm, grab Grimgrin from the Command zone, Play Gravecrawler and Diregraf Captain.
Sacrifice Gravecrawler to Grimgrin, play from graveyard for 0. Rinse and repeat.
Grimgrin becomes an infinite/infinite and any player you choose loses infinite life.
Also, you can throw in a Demon's Horn for infinite life, use Savra, Queen of the Golgari in a casual deck to force them to sack an infinite number of creatures...lots of utility with the right cards.

he looks abusable, but i'm having a hard time finding a good infinite combo with him in his colors

sure, there's Elemental Mastery and presence of gond, but they're both off color

EDIT: there's more than enough many card combos (3+ cards) that i can think of; even in the same colors, and from an EDH perspective tangleroot isn't even allowed in the deck (although i never did specify EDH rulings)

Kinda of a mini Thraximundar... I like him a lot... if I open one, I may try to make an EDH deck out of him.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
