Hello everyone,
Since we found out that thanks to BCP VTES is coming back our local scene has exploded! I myself came back after almost 14 years and the game is just as great as I remember it.
Recently I've tried to build deck based around Malgorzata and it’s not bad but I think it needs some additional fine tuning. It's great at surviving but it doesn't oust its prey fast enough. I usually stay till the end and my prey has <10 pool left but alas no points for that.

1. How do you intend to oust?
Bleeds for 3 from Mistress Fanchon and Lord Tremere, bouncing big bleeds from my predator using Telepathic.
2. How do you intend to keep from being ousted?
Bounces, wakes + intercept cards from auspex + perma cept from Lord Tremere/Radio/GA, "digging" for Ancient Influence/Political Stranglehold
3. What do you want your ready region to look like (ie, how many guys are you planning on getting out)?
1st Mistress then she uses her ability to influence out Mistress or Lord (depending on what I get in crypt and sitting). I hope to have Malgorzata, Mistress and Lord Tremere after 1h.
4. What do you want your average turn to look like?
Mistress Fanchon “digs” for card, Lord Tremere unlocks her. Both bleed for 3, Malgorzata stays unlocked to bounce/block if I don’t feel safe. If I feel safe (unlocks + intercept in hand) she either tries to produce pool with her ability or bleeds for 1 (maybe 2 with changeling)
5. What's your metagame like? How do your opponents play?
We have a group of 10 players and we all have different decks to play so meta changes a lot every time we meet.
6. What problems have you observed with the deck in play?
Well the worst case scenario is if get 4 Malgorzata in uncontrolled and then 5th comes from the top of the crypt. Besides that deck seems to be highly resilient.
Like I mentioned earlier my biggest problem seems I don’t oust quickly enough.
