Welcome to a Special Feature Friday here at GDC! We’re going to step outside the usual schedule today to put up an article by our good friend Imshan (of Commandercast.com fame.)
Tonight I’m going to break from the mold to let Imshan talk a little bit about Storm and its applications in our beloved format. I know you all know my usual stance about combo in EDH, and there are some options in here that I can’t quite personally come to terms with. But this isn’t your typical two-card immediately-end-the-game monster; it’s really pretty cool and wildly random. You get some epic occurrences, but it doesn’t feel broken. It’s a deck built around a mechanic, rather than a deck built to combo off.
He showed me the decklist the other day and it really piqued my curiosity, so I wanted to throw it up on the site for people to take a look at something a little different. I’ve got a storied background of playing Storm combo in Vintage, so I thought it’d be a great way to end the week.
I hope you all enjoy it, and we’ll see you Monday.
