Alan Comer's Comerzilla

Reanimator has long been a popular archetype in formats around the Magic multiverse. One of the most popular early forms of the deck was played by the famous Alan Comer, and aptly nicknamed "Comerzilla." The deck's game plan was to plop a fatty like Verdant Force into the graveyard via Hidden Horror or Firestorm, then hop it back into play on the cheap with a card like Animate Dead or Necromancy. Comer earned a reputation as a deckbuilder over the course of his professional career, and was even enshrined into the Pro Tour Hall of Fame. It's now voting season for the 2011 class; find out who is up for election on the Hall of Fame page.
