Willow Palecek won the Wisconsin State Championships "Who's The Big Cheese Now?" at Plattecon Upsilon (2007) using this deck. She also won the GenCon 2007 world championships using a slightly retuned version (listed down below).
------------Nazi Cheese (Plattecon 2007 version)
Foundations: DNA Mage x5 Friends of the Dragon x4 Hacker x2 Test Subjects x5 Hitters: Agent Tanaka x1 BoneChill x2 CHAR x2 Elsa Winterhagen x2 Genghis X x1 Homo Omega (original) x1 Rocket Man x1 White Ninja x1 Denial: Aerial Bombardment x5 Arcanovirus x2 Final Brawl x5 Nerve Gas x5 Neutron Bomb x1 Support: Cellular Reinvigoration x1 Dangeous Experiment x3 Evacuation 2066 x2 Golden Combeback x3 Rise of the Neoburo x1 Secret Pact x1 Feng Shui: 1x Blessed Orchard 1x Disco 1x Gambling House 1x Family Home 1x Fortress of Shadow 1x Fox Pass 1x Nine Dragon Temple 1x Maze of Stairs 1x Sacred Heart Hospital 1x Mobius Gardens 1x Stone Dolmens 1x Temple of the Angry Spirits 2x Whirlpool of Blood
Strategy: Play lots of Resources. Play Dangerous Experiment. Play a six cost hitter. Golden Combeback as necessary. Kill anyone who gets in your way. The trickiest part tends to be knowing when to play Dangerous Experiment.
Substitutions: If you lack some of the high-end hitters, Magog, the Queen of the Ice Pagoda, or Desdemona Deathangel will do the job. The Queen is especially handy if Shadowy Mentors are popular in your play-group. I don't have the new version of Homo Omega; I'd be worth running it for the tech requirement.
The Bonechills and CHARs are more or less interchangable, and mix and match with your preferred 4 cost hitters as you like. These guys are there to get you a burn for power. Shung Dai almost made it into this slot.
The Rocket Man, Aerial Bombardments, and Final Brawls are anti-weenie, which is needed my local metagame. If yours tends towards bigger characters, the Rocket man will probably be better off as a bigger hitter, and the Aerial Bombardments should probably be Imprisons.
The deck doesn't use that much tech; substituting Stormtroopers for the DNA Mages should give it a little more to do in the early game, and they even fit the 'theme'.
