Dave Martin made it to the finals of the GenCon UK 2001 Final Brawl multiplayer championship using this deck. The next year, he went all the way to win with a slightly different mix.

Dave has been playing this deck for some time. Its heart is the combination of Shadowy Mentor and Shaolin Surprise. Three new cards from Shaolin Surprise made it into the deck: Year of the Snake, Yen Fan, Heaven's Peak and Temple of the Monkey King. I don't what people see in Heaven's Peak but the other cards are very solid. Yen Fan played a big part in the final but was, as you might expect, working for the other side - Steve Bailey.
