Though some have clear reasons, such as Griselbrand being a powerhouse storm commander like Sidisi, Undead Vizier with an Ad Nauseam in deck, I just don't personally agree with all of the choices. An example would be that Library of Alexandria is banned yet similarly powerful cards like Candelabra of Tawnos are legal. Sundering Titan I couldn't even tell you why it was banned from a competitive standpoint, and from a casual standpoint of it being too powerful, Jokulhaups should be banned instead.
I'll probably do it, but because of these discrepancies, it'll take some amount of time.

Magic_Aids - Did you ever think of cutting Bloodghast for Griselbrand? Also after watching your video for like 12th time, is there anyway to fit another Swamp in or just always fetch for it first? Seemed like that was keeping you back some games. I plan on running this at an upcoming PPTQ because I like spicy stuff, and you got the goods sir!

Sarkhan, Fireblood is aeons ahead of Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded. It has a good-to great +1 (it can be used to enable stuff like Goryo's Vengeance + Griselbrand), and the floor is Tormenting Voice. And it has a game winning ultimate - which is a better Marit lage (due to evasion and multiple bodies).
Its likely gonna be a staple in free win red variants, and gonna pop up time to time in decks like skred, or ponza, that would love card filtering but have little to no access to it. (And the latter two decks may be able to use the second +1 to power out early dragon)
(While tibalt has 3 useless abilities)
Bone Dragon easily could have been fixed Skaab Ruinator, is the ability would not include a mana cost. As it is its complete garbage in constructed. Just compare it to cards that we have since eaons like Demigod of Revenge, and that is only marginally played.

Griselbrand is one of THE things to reanimate if you can afford a couple of those if not I'll come up with some cheap alternatives

As mentioned, sinking that many resources and sacrificing multiple creatures only to get a single one without haste or tample in a format rife with single target removal is a feels bad. And since it has no inbuilt protection (unlike Emrakul, the Aeons Torn), no trample/evasion (unlike Siege Rhino), no immediate effect (unlike Griselbrand), it just sits there for a turn before it does anything. Then even when you finally can do something with it, it taps to make a token which has to wait a turn before attacking. The best way to make it work would be to ramp into a Tooth and Nail to get it and Xenagos, God of Revels but at this point, you could get any creature.
The other issue is that you're having to devote quite a chunk of your deck to making it work.
As has also been said though, if you want to make it work then go for it. But The reason that it isn't played is that it's just not efficient.
