This deck is one of my "catch people off guard" decks. I really like doing either new deck ideas with old vampires or doing old tech with new ones. I was looking at some things and came to the decision that no one would expect "the law firm" to go Anarch. I also wanted to find a way to make Elder Kindred Network a viable option. Essentially, I have one or two go anarch either with fee stake or secession, start dropping the revolts and hope that someone tries to pull off the vote to cancel it and I can use EKN and Kindred Coercion to blow them off the table. I also get tired of negotiating for 10 minutes with my cross table on votes and have had the time and place to burn them away to give myself vote lock. The deck is currently at 80 cards and I'm looking at another 10 to add.

Arika x3
Queen Anne x2

MalkavianPrank,

The online community has been spoiled by ARDB formatted decks for years. The way it parses cards and keeps them separate is beyond value in quickly evaluating a deck. I highly recommend it.

Quick review:

1) You have 4 vampires that can go Anarch without an Anarch Session, and 8 that require it (and 3 of them lose their votes by doing so). This is not a plan to have many Anarchs in play. Revolutionary Council works based on the number of untapped Anarchs you have. These things don't work together in your current deck.

1a) Consider adding Third Traditions and Embrace/Becoming to get more Anarchable minions.
1b) Drop Revolutionary Council for Banishment, to get rid of your prey's new Anarchs.

2) You have no crypt acceleration, so it takes more than a turn to get 11 of your vampires into play, and for 6 of them it takes 3 turns to get into play. Consider Information Highway/Zillah's Valley.

3) You have to already be an Anarch to call a Fee Stake, so your exposition that "I have one or two go anarch either with fee stake or secession" doesn't make a lot of sense. If you mean that your vampire goes anarch first, then takes the action to gain the 1 Fee Stake, it would be more accurate. You really only need one Anarch to avoid the effects of the Anarch Revolt yourself, and with Parity Shift, you might not even need that.

4) You won't have a lot of minions in play, for quite a while, as your initial start is 2+ turns and your Governs are a bit few for my taste to be used as crypt acceleration. I'd replace some of the Consanguineous Boons with votes that oust your prey. See also the discussion of how to decide the political actions included that appeared in this newsletter:

I totally missed that Fee Stake requires a ready anarch to pull off, luckily there's only the one in the deck so thats an easy pull.

I like the idea of switching in the banishments. I'd mostly put the Revolutionary Council's in to have something else for the anarchs to do besides save me from the revolt.

I've got space for 10 more cards which could easily be a few more Governs and a handful of KRCs or a Zillah's or two.

With the fee stake gone, I could easily modify the crypt to be more prince heavy, possibly even splashing in one or two either Brujah or Toreador, keeping in mind trying not to lose the option of using EKN.

1a helps with the con boons as well, and Rev Council is just cool. The banishment idea may be more damage for less work than the council/embrace. Also, you could go with reckless agitation too.

Don't forget the Secret Library either. You can build, save and access your decks anywhere. And it also produces nicely formatted code, even with BB-code included :)
