There seem to be three decent ways to abuse Grothama.

1) Give him lifelink and every creature you attack with will gain you 10 life. Bonus points if one of your opponents does this for you.

2) Hurt him a lot and draw all the cards.

3) Play Stuffy Doll, Broodhatch Nantuko, Protean Hulk, Saber Ants, or Vigor.

Most of these interactions can be improved by either indestructible for your creatures via Eldrazi Monument or bouncing Grothama with Temur Sabertooth.

Otherwise the deck is a pretty straight forward face beater.
