I just killed my friend in an EDH game with this bad boy and a splinter twin. I'm definately considering making an EDH deck with him as a general. ^^

Necrotic Ooze + Grimgrin, Corpse-Born + Bloodline Keeper + Butcher of Malakir

Tap the Ooze for a token which you then sacrifice to untap the Ooze gaining +1/+1 each time. Repeat ad nauseam. Each token sacrificed forces you opponent(s) to sacrifice a creature of their own. Do it until the cube is big enough to 1hit kill you opponent(s).

A fantastic finisher for my Zombie tribal. He effectively has vigilance because you can sac to untap right after you attack, although I've gotten several free kills from people swinging at my tapped out field forgetting I could untap Grimgrin to block. The repeatable Doom Blades (now with black-killing!) is great for clearing out Guard Gomazoas and the like, as well as murdering anything strong enough to stand up to Grimgrin. Being able to sac to power him up at any time is useful too, it can get him out of range of burn or provide those extra few points of damage. And in a Zombie deck, between the tokens and the recursion, you should have no trouble keeping him fed long enough to finish your opponent.

awesome with token generators like "moan of the unhallowed" and "endless ranks of the dead" when backed by B/U control, to give you enough time to build tokens.

this bad boy crushes everything in his path and then jumps back on defense afterwords... easy 5/5

Zombie Tribal just got a lot more powerful thanks to Dark Ascension.
With Grimgrin, Gravecrawler (which Symar pointed out and was so rudely voted down), Diregraf Captain and Havengul Lich, I may build my first block-constructed deck ever.

Also nasty with Undying creatures to sacrifice and a Hex Parasite.

DytjeSaur- Grimgrin is Legendary. Activating Splinter Twin would kill him instantly.

I love this guy, I just don't see why they had to put a blue cost on him. Nothing in his abilities says he's blue. Oh well, I'm not complaining, I was going to put him in a U/B zombie deck anyway.

Grim-Grin +Endless Ranks of the Dead is a decent (albeit somewhat expensive and somewhat slow) near-infinite combo. So long as you don't sac ALL of your zombies in one turn, you'll pretty quickly have enough zombies to sac more than you could need.

ok, why is everyone coming up with rediculously long combos for him when there is the simple rooftop storm and gravecrawler

Shenanigans with Grimgrin, Corpse-Born + Bloodline Keeper in the yard and Necrotic Ooze + Falkenrath Noble on board.

Rooftop Storm + Gravecrawler + Diregraf Captain will also kill the opponent outright but that's true with any sac outlet...

Combos with Gravecrawler and Rooftop Storm. Throw in a dash of Diregraf Captain for an instant win
