I want to like him, but he just seems like a slightly worse, slightly cheaper Thraximundar. The only positive aspect is that he can create untap shenanigans with creature auras... hmm...

As has been said, great for EDH. He's going to go great in a token/counter blue-black deck. Cards like Dream's Grip, or the other five dozen blue cards that do something similar, plus the overall control of blue-black. This guy is awesome.

I'm currently building a tribal zombie deck around this guy, he's definitely one of my favorite cards from innistrad, how about turn 1 Diregraf ghoul turn 2 Heartless Summoning Turn 3 GRIMGRIN INSTA-WIN!

Alright, so I put this in my deck with my Lich Lord of Unx's, Undead Alchemists and a bunch of utility zombies. This thing is *** crazy.

His art is totally Pudge from Dota.

this guy was the first thing michael jackson brought to life in thriller, gravebane zombie was the next, and he watched them both do the thriller dance from the rooftop storm

Grimgrin is an excellent mix of old-school flavor, with new-school power. Cards that boast this sort of strength should require some finesse in order to exploit. Also, the design of this card makes other creud displays of power (ie Phyrexian Obliterator, Wurmcoil Engine, geist of saint traft etc...) seem just lazily and poorly designed by comparison.

reassembling skeleton + grimgrin + lumberknot + call to the grave = 'nuff said!

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

Could be, or it could be a reference to the Shakespearean poem 'Venus and Adonis' which was the inspiration for the Haunted Mansion song:

...thus chides she Death,
"Grim-grinning ghost, earth’s worm, what dost thou mean
To stifle beauty and to steal his breath"

But it's probably both. I'd be shocked if Wizards' creative team didn't have a few people who are fans of both Disney and Shakespeare.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
