    One of the few constants in highlander is Jean-Paul Kelly aka JP, and that when he attends an event he will be on his Storm deck. JP started built and began playing his storm deck possibly as early as 2007 and definitely by 2009. During that time he has racked up a conservative estimate of 26,000 goldfishes, making him more experienced with this particular flavour of storm than the next three most experienced pilots combined.

    This particular Storm represents a near perfect medium for Storm(-like) combo in highlander. Medium difficulty. Mid-level complexity. Middle of the pack for speed and resiliency. The deck proves intimidatingly complex for new players, as they can struggle to find ways to meaningfully interact. The deck is weak to extract effects and almost certainly loses to a Sadistic Sacrament or Bitter Ordeal (for 3). As a rule of thumb, one piece of interaction every 2-turns accompanied by a clock is enough to disrupt all but the absolutely most resilient of highlander combo decks.
