How many abilities has Slice and Dice? And Grim Reminder? What are they? (activated,triggered,static)

Slice and Dice has a static ability, a triggered ability, and an activated ability.
Static -- Slice and Dice deals 4 damage to each creature.
Activated -- Cycling . (Discard Slice and Dice, : Draw a card.)
Triggered -- When you cycle Slice and Dice, you may have it deal 1 damage to each creature.

An activated ability is always written Cost: Effect. Look for the colon.
A triggered ability always includes "when", "whenever", or "at".
A static abiltiy is everything else.

Grim Reminder has a static ability and an activated ability. The main ability is static, the return to hand is activated.
How many abilities has Slice and Dice?

Three. In order, they are:
1) The static ability "Slice and Dice deals 4 damage to each creature."
2) The activated ability "Cycling ".
3) The triggered ability "When you cycle Slice and Dice, you may have it deal 1 damage to each creature."
Grim Reminder?

Two:
1) The static ability "Search your library for a nonland card and reveal it. Each opponent who played a card this turn with the same name as that card loses 6 life. Then shuffle the revealed card back into your library. "
2) The activated ability ": Return Grim Reminder from your graveyard to your hand. Play this ability only during your upkeep."

Since these are a sorcery and an instant, their static abilities are instructions to be followed as they resolve.
Thank you
