Yes I play Storm pretty regularly. Once I hit 6 you can kill 600-700 hp with my build. I also gank with him as much as I can, I don't go bottle because it somewhat slows me down and I don't have mana issues with my build ever.
Ganking 2+ heroes usually consumes all my mana and I use that time to farm up while my mana regens to go do it all again.
Main reason why I don't get bottle is because you most likely won't be getting every rune. Their are also other heroes that could be using the runes to bottle themselves.
I use your build as an alternative if I feel we need more disable over damage. Usually I can kill people before my grapple runs out. In your build you don't max remnant over grapple either so you are agreeing with my point
Both builds are suitable, the main thing is, static remnant isn't worth maxing super early, which i what I see a LOT of people do and it makes me mad.
