Eyes of the Dead is fine as it is. It serves its role as comic relief.

My president is Donald Trump. No more comic relief please.

Generally speaking, we need a more narrow power level on cards. There are nearly 2300 library cards but maybe 500 are 'playable'. That is like 2 sets effectively for a 25 year old game. Clearly I just kind of made up 500 but the idea still stands.

Things if the game would be reboot:
-three discipline levels
-just 13 major clans, and bloodlines not as prominent as they are in the game, antitribu incorporated into clans
-streamlined turn sequence, unlock, main phase, influence phase (discard interchangeable with transfers)
-minimum 11 vampires in crypt, 5 transfers starting from 2 for first player (transferring out vampire cost 1 transfer, getting new vampire all transfers)
-masters card playable in main phase, just a few playable after/before minions are acting but it's written down on those individual cards.
-no damn gehenna (no event cards either, events would go into master cards territory)
-most controversial thing, 1/2 (written down as 15 for 1.5 and 10 for 1.0.
-pool grouped into location-type of card (say, 5 locations for 6 pool each) that could be affected by cards effects, upgraded and other stuff.
-deflection type of cards shouldn't work as they do, but instead the pool damage should be split between both players (deflector and victim), and both can attempt to block)
-Combat has three phases: Maneuver, Strike, Press. All effects fit into these phases. Resolve effects as played, with each player going back and forth until neither player plays a card (they then proceed with the next phase).
-Preferable cards that give mandatory presses between sects that don't like each other. Preferably permanent effect, not one shot.


Otherwise what @LivesByProxy said, also make that disciplineless deflection triflemaster already.
