Deck of the Month: January 2011: Samedi eat your brain

This year's January has the first tournament winning deck with a full Samedi crypt since June 2009. But wait there's not only one Samedi deck in the TWDA in January 2011, but there are two TWD both in January 2011 and back in June 2009! This sure has something to mean .. so here's Dmitriy Konstantinov's deck named "Samedi eat your brain".

I chose Dmitriy's over Robyn's Samedi deck because frankly I still cannot see how she won a tournament with it, while I can see that Dimitry's deck has considerable offensive strength. Dimitry's deck is a full blown Reanimated Corpse deck with Little Mountain Cemetery for pool gain and Freak Drive for multi-action.

Interestingly Dimitry's is really quite similar to the first TWD with a pure Samedi crypt, played by Ben Swainbank in 2006.
