Deck of the Month: December 2011: Shattering test Villein Perfectionist

This month's deck is the tournament winning deck "Shattering test Villein Perfectionist" played by Vincent Ripoll (FRA). They were several other candidates for this month's choice, for example Stefan Karlsson's Gerald Windham Multirush deck or Johannes Walch's Chain of Command deck as well. In the end I liked Vincent's deck best, possibly because I saw it in action several times. The deck is based on Shattering Crescendo and it's devastating effects, especially in the endgame. The deck first keeps a low profile and tries to build up and plays Shattering Crescendo against his predator (as defense). The real deal with the deck is find the right time to play the Shattering Crescendo as offense or and/or to control the table.
