Nicolas Labarre
   Nicolas Labarre's combo deck, called Chimera, used searching cards to fetch Fecundity, Saproling Cluster, and Ashnod's Alter so he could generate unlimited mana.

With this mana Labarre used Blaze or Whetstone to plow right over his opponents.

       The 2000 World Championships was Nicolas Labarre's third Top 8 finish at a Pro Tour event (Rome '98, New York '99, Worlds '00).

       This Rennes, France native played a combo deck that he called "Chimera". This deck used searching cards like Academy Rector and Enlightened Tutor to fetch Fecundity, Saproling Cluster, and Ashnod's Alter.

       Once those three cards were in play, Labarre could generate as much mana as he wanted. With unlimited mana, he could play a very big Blaze or use Whetsone to immediately deck his opponent.
