Welcome to the beautiful world of Zombies, where we sacrifice you because we all need to eat

enter image description here

This is my Grimgrin EDH Deck, please look at the Maybeboard because Im still working on it - but basically I want to build up Tokens / Zombies to get Grimgrin getting stronger and stronger... well you know that old Chestnut. That old Creature stealing, bigger getting, pain in the ass Chestnut.

"Feeding a normal army is a problem of logistics. With zombies, it is an asset. Feeding is why they fight. Feeding is why they are feared."


With Rooftop StormGE icon I can play GravecrawlerGE icon for from the Graveyard after sacrificing him with Grimgrin, Corpse-Born. With this he could get unlimited power.Power

Kill the Enemy:

Kill ALL the creatures of the Enemy:



2/2 Zombie Tokens:

Your Opponent discards all his cards (Only in your turn - No Grimgrin needed but another Zombie is needed)

Get a lot of Lifepoints

  • Gutless GhoulGE icon (It costs to get 2 Life; No Grimgrin needed. I had this combo ones and gained about 50 Lifepoints very quick)


Additional Sacrifice Combo Trigger:

Synergy Effects

Blasting Station or Grimgrin, Corpse-Born or Carrion FeederGE icon or Nantuko HuskGE icon or Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Gutless GhoulGE icon or Sadistic Hypnotist + Reef Worm is an instant 9/9 Kraken Creature Token. Just sacrifice the Reef Worm and every creature who will be generated until you get the Kraken. Give the Reef Worm and all after that Skullclamp and you can draw 6 cards and a 10/10 Kraken.

If I sacrifice a Zombie (best would be Gravecrawler ) I can get out Bone Picker for .

Grimgrin has always been a favorite zombie of mine too (Just look at him!)

Wouldn't you still have to pay to cast gravecrawler with Rooftop Storm? I may be confused by how it works, but I thought Rooftop Storm just made it so where you don't need to cast the uncolored mana requirements for zombies.

Thanks I love him to -

No because the text says "rather than" so the 0 is the new Cost for every Zombie Creature.

I've been wondering how to handle a Grimgrin deck for a while now. Glad this deck came up.

I mostly use Grimgrin to deal commander damage, its a really easy way to win because he literally eats the oponnents creatures away and you can attack the lifepoints while he gets stronger

but can you still untap grimgrin if he is not tapped?

No, but you can always sacrifice creatures to get him stronger. Sacrificing creatures does both and when he's untapped he still stays untapped until you attack with him

The new Plague Belcher is an upgrade to Vengeful Dead. Cool deck though! I'd love any advice you had for my Grimgrin deck.

Do you want a list of Tutors(Or draw/anything you really need)? I would look up the user MagicalHacker, because he has created a lot of EDH lists that are extremely useful.

Cool deck though. I like it.

I can't stress enough how important Minamo, School at Water's Edge can be for you!

Replace Falkenrath Noble with Blood Artist and we'll be good.
