Well first I spend a lot of money on cards, second I have a father-in-law who also spends a lot of money on cards (well he spends a lot more money on cards than I do) who will give me and my friends cards and we both use e-bay and craig's list besides going to the card shops.

You'd be very surprised what kind of cards people sell on these sites, I've gotten A LOT of really good cards for cheap. I remember once my father-in-law bought 5000 cards (for 30 dollars + shipping) which had mostly junk in it, but then he got about 30 or so rares that we're worth quite a bit of money.

Plus before Shinders went out of business they had some idiots working there who'd have rare cards in common boxes, so I've bought a lot of rare cards for 10 cents that are worth 12-20 bucks (Morphling/Force of will for example).

Edit:

By the way I've recently put together a deck for chaos magic. Chaos magic is basically at the beginning of each players turn (I usually play multi-player with about 5-7 people) you roll a die (we use an 8 sided die). If you roll a 2-7 your turn continues as normal, HOWEVER if you roll a 1 or an 8 you take a card from the chaos deck and flip it over. The cards I've put in affect everyone and some of them are good/bad and some of them are situational. I'll post it later, but it makes the game a lot more fun and interesting.

I have been playing a multiplayer Treefolk deck for about a year. It has actually won a lot of games, to my surprise, because mono-green is usually terrible. I can make a couple suggestions.

Assuming no restrictions concerning format, I would suggest adding Weatherseed Treefolk into the deck because it is one of the best green creatures ever printed. It's also pretty cheap to buy off EBAY.

The key to the deck I use is Sylvan Library. It lets you stack the top of your deck for Leaf Crowned Elder, and if you use life gain, like from Orchard Warden, you can just draw a million cards. It also is an early drop that filters draws. This one is also inexpensive.

Wickerbough Elder is much better than Rootgrapple. Creatures are more important than an cantripping instants. I also really like Woodfall Primus in my deck. Blowing up utility lands can win games and persist is incredible.

The decks main weakness (fliers) is better handled by either Whirlwind or Squall Line, rather than Cloudcrown Oak. I tend towards Squall Line because I use Orchard Warden, so I can fireball the table when I am ahead in life totals.

Pixel your deck looks pretty good, however I could make some suggestions to cut it down:

-1 Verdeloth the Ancient & -1 Doran the Siege Tower: With treefolk harbinger + leaf-crowned elder, you will only need 1 of each (which you'll be able to play for free).

-2 Sapling of Colfenor: you could replace him with Orchard Warden, costs 1 more but you only gain life and again cost doesn't matter so much with harbinger/leaf-crowned elder

-1 Cloudcrowned Oak, with what you have in your deck, even if your opponent has flying, they'll be dead before they can kill you and even with 3 it'll come up often enough, losing one won't hurt you any.

-4 root grapple, not needed really - better as a sideboard than as main deck

Anyway those are the cards that I see that your deck could probably either be put on the side-board or just eliminated completely the rest of your deck I think is pretty solid.

I made a treefolk deck myself that's somewhat similar to that:

2 Orchard Warden
4 Leaf-Crowned Elder
3 Wickerbough Elder
4 Bosk Banneret
4 Dauntless Dourbark
4 Treefolk Harbinger
4 Timber Protector
3 Cloudcrown Oak
3 Battlewand Oak
3 Chameleon Colossus
4 Evolution Charm
20 Forest
2 Gaea's Cradle

Okay... so I thought up a new and funny deck to play - squirrels!

4 Squirrel Nest
4 Earthcraft
4 Chatter of the Squirrel
4 Squirrel Mob
3 Deranged Hermit
4 Druid's Call
2 Might of Oaks
3 Muraganda Petroglyphs
2 Nut Collector
4 Overrun (might replace this with coat of arms)
4 Harmonize
2 Krosan Beast

2 Gaea's Cradle
1 Pendel Haven
4 Swarmyard
13 forest

Provided I get the right cards I could probably win in about 4 turn or 5 turns and over run my opponent(s) with a ton of the furry little bastards (Earthcraft + Squirrel nest = infinite squirrels) :D!

Hymn to Tourach might go really good with your deck...

You're deck looks pretty interesting, you should let me know how it does.

So anyway, I've already gotten my foil, FNM, Myr Enforcer promo for this month as well as two copies of last month's Magma Jet. So I'm on track to winning all of the promos this year. Hopefully I can keep it up!
