Olivier Ruel's Birthing Pod

We're in the midst of Nationals season, and this past weekend featured the best players from France battling to defend their nation at the 2011 World Championships. Historically France is one of the top Magic-playing nations, with more Hall of Fame members than almost any other country. One of those players, Olivier Ruel, made the Top 8 at the event this past weekend. His deck? A green, white, and blue Birthing Pod concoction that works up a chain of creatures to tutor forth the best option for whatever situation he finds himself in. Full coverage of the event (in French) can be found here.
