-- 1 GW 5 VP + 2 VP in final

Deck Name: Propaganda Moves
Author: Karl Schaefer & Ke Carlton
Description: Night Moves + Propaganda.

I played this online several times and liked the basic concept. Big thanks to Ke
for helping tune this deck. It worked beautifully today until the finals. Round 1
finshed in 37:30 with a sweep at a four-player table. Round 2 gave me an additional
VP, which tied me for second-place. Both rounds were helped immensely by a first
turn Information Highway. As usual, I lost the die roll, so I was third seed going
into the finals.

Me ->
Conner Bell (Legacy of Pander) ->
Mark Loughman (KS Stealth Bleed) ->
John Pattie (Tremere with Potence toolbox) ->
Alex Romano (Henry Taylor Twister)

I ended up exactly where I wanted. I knew if Alex could get set up that none of the
decks at the table would be able to oust him. So, I was hoping to let Mark get John
off the table and out-race the eventual Smiling Jack to get 2 VPs and win on seeding.

My opening crypt draw was awful, containing no Anarch Converts. I had to dig twice
just to find the first one. So, there was a lot of early discarding of unplayable
cards. Fortunately, the Legacy deck never got one into play, which would have made
my victory impossible. Mark made somewhat quick work of John. In the four-player,
Alex allowed me to call two Diversity, which gave me 12 pool and Alex 8, with Mark
and Conner only gaining 2 pool each. I think it was a mistake for Alex to allow these
votes to go through.

The rest of the game was me crashing into Conner's vampires sometimes with stealth,
sometimes slap fighting. Eventually I oust Conner and continue against Mark in the
same way. Alex tried to deal with Mark to oust me and go heads up, but Alex was
already set up. Mark kept trying to make forward progress, even getting Alex to 3 pool.
Eventually, I got Mark next and conceded my VP to Alex, since I had no way of getting by
Henry Taylor.

I won on seeding in a 2-2-1 result.
