"Me Grimlock no bozo, me KING!" - Grimlock, Transformers The Movie

I want to use Grimlock and my play group has been kind enough to agree to let me use him.

I'm starting with just jamming in whatever I have available of the things he cares about. I forgot my Transformer toy the first time I played the deck so I couldn't transform Grimlock, but he doesn't really need to transform. The deck is good at just playing creatures and turning them sideways and Grimlock's power boost makes those creatures good at what they're doing.

The next step is to include cards to help my creatures "Get In There" for damage. Most of the cards in this category grant my creatures trample or menace.

I hope I have included enough removal. I am also partially relying on forcing my opponents to block as a form of creature removal.

Card draw is definitely an issue to look at. A creature-heavy aggro deck needs some extra card draw in order to keep going.

The Utility category is mostly ramp. It also includes a few other effects which are helpful. Utility is my catch-all for anything that doesn't have enough cards to need its own category.

So far the greatest weakness I have here is card draw.

Sylvan Library, Harmonize, Sensei's Diving Top, staff of nin and drum hunter are some good card draw. Sylvan Library works especially well because you have ways to recoup that life loss

Which Transformer do you use? There are some nice, but expensive Grimlock figures out there. A fun one to use, if it woulnd't mess up everyone's board state would be a Jumpstarter. You pull it back in vehicle mode, it goes off automatically and flips into a robot.

Speed of transformation is the most important thing as no one is willing to wait around more than a couple of seconds. This is completely understandable and I agree. I chose to use Beetle who is one of the Beast Wars Predicons who appeared in McDonald's happy meals when I was a kid. I can convert him in about two or three seconds.
