We often get questions about how the points are developed and built upon. The answer is simple – our community elects a council of five individuals to make decisions on behalf of the format and its players. As it stands currently, the five individuals are elected and sit for a 6-month term, with each present community member getting three votes to go towards nominees they feel are most suited for the role.

I have been playing Highlander for 8 years. I got into the format with a U/W control deck which I played for a while. Recently I am known for playing just about every deck imaginable, my most recent wins coming with Scapeshift, Reanimator, and UW Control. My ideal format allows every archetype (Control, Midrange, Aggro, Tempo, Combo) to be competitive. When looking at pointing a card or a deck I try hard to take emotion out of the equation and look at the situation with as little bias as possible. My favourite deck to play is: 5 Colour Aluren Food Chain Pod.
