As someone that just recently got back into Dota after a long hiatus, I don't really get what Grimstroke does. He doesn't seem to have much of an impact at all in the games he's picked.

Q is a linear nuke that does more damage the more units it hits
W is a single target weaver beetle that silences. If the ghost survives, the cooldown is refreshed
E is a buff on allies that stuns and damages depending how close the unit was to enemies before it exploded
R leashes two enemy heroes together and any single target spell cast on one tethered target is automatically cast on the other.
Aghs creates a BKB'd illusion of the target with 150% damage like a dark seer wall illusion

He's a squishy though very single-target combo heavy support largely dependent on if his team draft around him. Too polarizing right now and he got nerfed numerous times before TI. Which is a shame since I love seeing the hero

It's like a more boring Warlock, not sure why it gets picked so often either.

Talking as a spectator though, Grim looks dull and his impact is very opaque.

gyro wants to play faster than before now tbh. Often goes drums bkb. And it scales late game so it's not as greedy a pick as before. EG are probably expecting the traditional 1v1 matchup mid so gyro not having an escape is not that a big a deal I guess?

He's usually paired with a hero that has a really good single target damage ult like Doom or maybe Lina. Also his new Arghs creates a spell immune illusion of an enemy hero, so I think that's the reason they picked him against the TB last game, plus you can get two copies if you combo it.
