Avacyn's Collar for ridiculous, continuous effect with no/little drawback drawback and ironic flavor.

Or splinter twin with mirror gallery once you get him untapped for +1/+1 madness.

I like this guy a lot actually and made a deck around him that has some interesting concepts in it. Well, to me they were anyway.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed & Hex Parasite.

From there just have a ball. As many has stated, finding an unlimted mana combo would be nice as you can sac creatures to Grimgrin, Corpse-Born and with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed giving them Undying you just use Hex Parasite to eat the counters.

Okay yea sure, "Why not just use Reassembling Skeleton?". Well, because using cards like Falkenrath Noble, Blistergrub, Perilous Myr, and Geralf's Messenger (although he already has undying) is just so much more fun, albiet harder to manage. Sac, sac sac, Target player loses life. Undying kicks in, bring them back, and if you have the mana...do it all over again.... (see all)

Tangleroot doesn't make any sense in the first combo, it adds mana when a creature is cast, not when it comes into play, so you wouldn't be getting mana every time you reanimate a skeleton.

Does Grimgrin need to be tapped in order to activate his ability?

I really enjoy using this card with Geralf's Messenger when available to cause two extra damage worth of misery to my opponent, and then sac a Fume Spitter next turn to do it all over again.

Failing that, Gravecrawler is wonderful as well.

I absolutely love this guy, and his blue requirement makes me more than happy enough to toss in a bunch of Diregraf Captain since I'm splashing blue anyways. That and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born just looks badass.

When Titan tribal takes a foothold this guy is going to become very valuable. Frost Titan is king when it comes to Titans, and Grimgrin is about the best answer to Frost Titan that I know of.

Combo with Rooftop Storm and Grave crawler to pump him up.

People keep saying if there was a way to give him vigilance he would be awesome, but doesn't his second ability give him vigilance? All you have to do is sacrifice another creature after he attacks in order to untap him.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
