|Set:||World Championship Decks 2000|
Hannover, Germany native Janosch Kühn joined an elite group of players in earning his second World Championship Top 8. Kühn played a red-green deck known as "Angry 'Derm" or "Son of Hermit." The deck built up its mana early with Birds of Paradise or Llanowar Elves, and then followed that up with mana-denial cards like Stone Rain, Plow Under, and Avalanche Riders. Masticore and Blastoderm provided the finishing punch.
