    Sorry for the Noob question but what is a highlander deck?

    Is it something to do with the movie? Or is it just a random name?

    "There can only be one!" ...copy of each card in your deck. The movie is definitely the reason behind the name :D

    It's also called a Singleton or Reno deck; Singleton is pretty self-explanatory, and Reno refers to Reno Jackson, the first Hearthstone card to employ the Highlander mechanic.

    If you have the time, you should totally check out our weekly Hearthstone card design competitions! :D

    You should check out this week's Rock Paper Scissors article that talks a bit about the history. "A word about Highlander decks"

    TL;DR of it though is Highlander is indeed a movie reference "there can only be one" which means your deck cannot include more than 1 copy of any card.

    it was pretty cool when I watched the highlander movie and had that realization myself.
