Jim has managed to consistently pilot rogue decks of his own design to strong finishes at States and Regionals. In 2003, he qualified for Nationals with one such creation named "The Ralphie Treatment".

The Ralphie Treatment: The Black/White Astroglide Alternative

I thought that the R/W Astroglide deck played a lot of cards that didn’t really do anything besides cycle (which, I grant you, is the concept of the deck)… And if the Lightning Rift was ever countered/disenchanted/sent to the graveyard in any fashion, the deck didn’t do much. But Astral Glide and Mesmeric Fiend? Ouch.
