Basic:
Who played which corruption counter?
Superior:
Wall of text. Lock this vampire to Misdirect. Something about corruption counters.

:tore: :pre: :tem: :aus: Independent Futurist. Contrarian (titled, X votes where X is the number of votes as the acting minion.) Target Vitals is always the better combat card.

Was this criticism?

If yes, the former point is not exactly a problem. Each player provides their own corruption counters if they're using them. That'll be a distinction. Players already have to do that with plenty of cards.

As for the latter point, amount of text is sad, kinda. The effect is cool though.

The superior text is too much. My recommendation is to spend more time theory crafting the design. There are some similarities to a card I submitted last year. If you want some inspiration, please take a look: http://www.vekn.net/forum/expansion-sets-card-ideas/75940-submission-taste-of-corruption

Flicks have a cost - usually in blood or by locking, or both if youre not dominate.

What about making corruption the cost to flick?

-burn a corruption counter from the bleeding minion to flick to prey (with proper words) instead of locking?
Getting corruption on predator isnt as easy as prey though...

What about avoiding flicking altogether? not everyone needs a flick right?

What about taking the bleed and putting corruption counters on the bleeder based on the bleed amount (x or x/2 or something) - creates a threat of stealing if you have another card?

i dunno, just spewing thoughts really...

As a possible simplification of card text (at superior), which ratchets the power level down some by making it less flexible.
Only usable when a Methuselah who is not your prey is bleeding you with an ally or younger vampire, after blocks are declined. Lock this reacting vampire. Choose one of your prey's minions. The acting minion is now bleeding your prey. If they successfully bleed your prey, instead of burning pool, place X corruption counters on the chosen minion, where X is half the bleed amount (rounded down).

Trying to think up an inferior that's more react-y, and then reshuffling some card text, perhaps an overall card might look like:
Cost: 1 blood
Reaction
Only usable when an ally or younger vampire is bleeding you. You cannot play another Alluring Distraction this action.
[ser] During this action, action modifiers cost an additional blood or life.
[SER] Only usable if the acting Methuselah is not your prey, after blocks are declined. Lock this reacting vampire. Choose one of your prey's minions. The acting minion is now bleeding your prey. If they successfully bleed your prey, instead of burning pool, place X corruption counters on the chosen minion, where X is half the bleed amount (rounded down).

Note that, with the inferior, somewhat like Blessing of Chaos, the acting minion can evade it a bit by playing cards before giving you the chance to play reactions - which mostly won't work with stealth, but would work with most bleed mods.
