Dark Libertas was created by extrala
The deck was initially build to punish bleed bounce. After the EC last year I was seriously annoyed by the amount of bleed bounce I have seen. The cards of choice were Libertas and Narrow Minds (and to some extent Touch of Clarity), which makes Deflection cost 3 blood and Telepathic Midirection 2 blood. Unfortunately Libertas only works against younger vampires, so my choice fell on the vampires with +1 stealth. This in turn requires some multi-action capability (Crimethinc and Mylan Horseed) for getting enough permanent bleed.

1. How do you intend to oust?
Bleeding twice each turn for +2 bleed each (at +1 stealth) (without playing cards).

2. How do you intend to keep from being ousted?
Reoouping blodd by Villein. A little defense with Eyes of Argus, Wrong & Crosswise and No Trace.

3. What do you want your ready region to look like (ie, how many guys are you planning on getting out)?

At least two big cap vampires, preferably including William Biltmore (for playing Crimethinc).

4. What do you want your average turn to look like?
Equip/Rercuit with one of the vampires, untap with Crimethinc., then bleed with two big caps for +2, then untap one of the vampires to be able to block (Eyes of Argus) or play Wrong and Crosswise).

5. What's your metagame like? How do your opponents play?
Few combat decks. Mostly bleed decks and some vote & toolboxy decks.

6. What problems have you observed with the deck in play?
The deck doesn't feel just right now. Blood on the vampires is sometimes a problem, but most of the times it runs out of pool (paying for the vampires, paying for Crimthinc, being bleed hard ...). There's a lack of speed (or bleeding harder), which makes the lack of defense all more apparent.

  • Metro Underground was in the deck before, but the Crimethinc's are good enough, and the master card section is already very full.
  • Currently on the list to add is Heidelburg Castle to move equipment and retainers aorund.

I don't find this to be true...

Libertas
Master
1 :pool:
Master. Requires an anarch.
Put this card on an anarch.
Allies cannot block this anarch.
Cards that require Dominate :dom: or Presence :pre: cost other minions an additional blood while this anarch is acting, attempting to block, or in combat.


Club Illusion can give you +2 bleed per turn, if you stick with the plan of bleeding twice, but it can also be used against you by your predator going anarch. I'd favor an Anarch Railroad or Anarch Troublemaker or even a Hunting Ground instead.

Oh, my bad, I would have sworn that it only works only ag. younger vampires.

Instead of Club Illusion or Libertas? The later should definitely stay in the deck. One point of the deck was to punish the very copious amount of bleed bounce used in my playgroup. Club Illusion is not strictly required in the deck, but it fits the Anarch theme in the deck and is good for lunging at my prey.

I recommend replacing the Club Illusion.
The Libertas are pure gold.

Put in some Regarhagan's Holds and I'd be reducing the size of the crypt ASAP. I'd be looking to have a mix of vampires with 7 cap :cap7: at the high end. Plus remember, 90% of anarch tech doesn't care about superior disciplines... which always feels counterintuitive. Maybe some Nikolai, the Survivor so he can learn what needs to be learned.

Libertas + Regarhagan's + Narrow Minds = Deflection costs 4 blood.

Regarhagan's Hold
Type: Master
Cost: 2 pool :pool:
Master: out-of-turn.
Give this card to another Methuselah during his or her untap phase and move a reaction card from that Methuselah's ash heap to this card. The chosen reaction card costs that Methuselah's vampires an additional blood. That Methuselah may move 1 pool to this card as a master phase action. Burn this card when it has 2 pool counters. A Methuselah can have only 1 Regarhagan's Hold.

:bruj::CEL::POT::PRE::tha: Baron of Sydney, Australia, 418

Libertas stacks, you know. I would pick a second Libertas over Regarhagan's Hold.
