This is a deck i haven't seen around on magic-league or MWS at all, whereas it is considered a tier1 deck in Holland.
I'd like to hear your comments about it.

Here's is the list im playing at the moment, though i have tested a lot of different lists so i will also add possible other options.

Lands:
4 Wasteland
1 Volrath's Stronghold
1 Barren Moor
3 Bayou
1 Scrubland
4 Tranquil Thicket
3 Savannah
4 Windswept Heath
1 Bloodstained Mire
1 Polluted Delta
1 Forest
1 Swamp

Creatures
3 Terravore
4 Dark Confidant
4 Tarmogoyf
3 Eternal Witness

Spells
4 Life from the Loam
2 Engineered Explosives
4 Mox Diamond
4 Swords to Plowshares
2 Pernicious Deed
2 Extirpate
3 Vindicate

Sideboard
2 Umezawa's Jitte
3 Krosan Grip
3 Duress
3 Tormod's Crypt
4 Gaddock Teeg

Some other versions i've tested: version one had 4 thoughtseize and 4 wild mongrel instead of 3 vindicate, 3 witness and 2 extirpate. Version 2 had 2 umezawa's jitte instead of 1 witness and 1 vindicate. I have not yet decided which is the strongest, but im currently testing the list above.

The sideboard is off course highly meta dependant so this is just an example. This sideboard is built for a metagame in which different kinds of combo decks are expected, which is the worst match-up for the deck, so it has teegs and duress for that reason.

I'd appreciate idea's to strenghten the deck. Please dont start about playing red instead of white, i know thats a really viable option but i simply like this version better and i happen to own this mana base and dont have taiga's and foothills and so on.

With all the testing ive done terravore is one of the last cards i'd cut. It can easily be a 9/9 trample in turn 5 (if your opponent fetches a few times). Doran is a good creature but in this deck terravore simply does more, with trample as a great bonus.

The 2 engineered explosives seems weird.

thats an interesting option. Though i dont think it would be viable in this version, without wild mongrel, since the only way to get it in the graveyard would be to dredge.
If i change back to a version with mongrels ill seriously consider genesis.

Although cutting a confidant isnt something i would do easily, they're game winners!

the only thing i would do is change the jittes in the side for swords its completly opiion because the extra mana hurts but i think the card advantage is worth it

I suppose u mean sword of fire and ice? I dont really see the point in that. Against what match-ups would u side them in?

The version with armageddon and mongrel is an earlier version of this deck. It was called terrageddon back then. Later the deck was improved to something more similar to my list and called terranova.
Mongel is still good in the new version but geddon doesnt fit into my list.
