I played against a Grimgrin deck with Mayael on Friday night. After I tucked his general with Primal Command I flew over his zombies and beat his face.

I recommend Levitation.

Love the self mill tribal theme lots of graveyard hate and mass GY recursion.


Why Consumptive Goo? It seems like a very expensive kill an X/1 get +1/+1 counter.

Phantasmagorian & Zombie Infestation I see lots of discard engines and while these are both reusable they seem far less strong than the others. What is your experience with their effect on the games they come up in?

River Kelpie & Secrets of the Dead both trigger card draw for spells played from the graveyard and I don't see much flashback/retrace to work with and just the one Gravecrawler. I like the Kelpie not sure about Secrets.

I agree with the statement about Levitation and second with Wonder because of all the options for self mill.

No Zombify, Animate Dead, Necromancy? If for flavor alone I would say auto-include.

Depending on the meta perhaps a Nevinyrral's Disk or Capsize to answer non-creature threats.

I've still had very little play with this deck so far, but as I am testing, I find that a Buried Alive into a Phantasmagorian plus two others really gets my self-discard engine going.

Havengul Lich does wonders with these two cards, especially when combined with a Rooftop Storm. That said, I included them in an early draft of the deck, and they may need to go.

I think that you may be right about adding Wonder. I had to cut some recursion cards when I was building the deck, and that's why Zombify, Animate Dead, and Necromancy didn't make it. If I cut the wrong ones, I can switch them out.

Pretty sure Primal Command says "noncreature permanent".

More importantly, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born isn't the only threat in the deck, and several cards tutor for him.
