Deck of the Week: Tarmofolk

Whoops, its friday again. Dang, I didn't noticed it. Time really flies these days. I better find myself a girlfriend or I'll end up an old and single dude. Lol... I'm getting off-topic. Anyways for my choice of the deck for this week, I'll feature the most expensive deck so far in the current Standard. It utilizes bomb cards, both in play and in your budget, like Doran, Tarmogoyf, Birds of Paradise, Thoughtseize, Chameleon Colossus and the treefolk land, Murmuring Bosk.

Playing the deck is somewhat like the B/G Elves. Accelerate into a second turn Doran through birds, hand disruption via Thoughtseize, and creature kills by Nameless Inversion and Slaughter Pact. Win conditions can be done by creature beats or Profane to the dome. Here's a sample build. Its a list piloted by Drew Ganske that got first place in Winnipeg Regionals in Canada.
