That was the best article Doug's ever written. He should do flavor decks more often.
I, too, enjoyed the article, but was bugged by the Scheme mistake. Also, the Grave Titan on Immersturm should have vanquished the Verdant Force without assistance; Deathtouch does that.

From the comprehensive rules:
104.3b If a player’s life total is 0 or less, he or she loses the game the next time a player wouldreceive priority.
104.2c In a multiplayer game between teams, a team with at least one player still in the game winsthe game if all other teams have left the game. Each player on the winning team wins the game,even if one or more of those players had previously lost that game.
