Turns out Highlander Mage is pretty strong right now.
Theo “Felkeine” Dumont defeated Martin “Zhym” Prete to win the first leg of the Hearthstone Masters Tour in Seoul, South Korea. He takes home $88,000 of the $500,000 prize pool and heads into the next stage of the tour as the player to beat.
Not only was it an all French final, but both players used the same Highlander Mage deck in an exciting mirror match. Felkeine explained his strategy in the post-match interview with a wry smile, “I focused on drawing Luna’s Pocket Galaxy”.

Felkeine’s victory wasn’t all up to Hearthstone’s RNG, though. He emerged the final player standing after a phenomenal run through 12 swiss rounds and a stacked top 8 bracket. Out of 300 top players, the french man certainly proved he’s on top of the Saviors of Uldum meta right now.
