file Need help with this Gangrel deck

12 Mar 2021 04:48 #101834 by smeeag
As described below, this deck have many moving parts on the way to success:
- Big caps
=> Slow influencing especially without governs, zillahs, highway

- Your combat significantly rely on weapon from Alastor, but it's also tricky.
=> You may you have tiny stealth module. Not required to be a wall, just telepathic misdirection is enough.
=> High chances not to draw it in the first few turns at all.
=> Vote lock is also real, with highcaps (enemies will influence all they want also) + no vote gain.

- Anathema pool gain is OK, but have it flaws: it's weak vs low-caps and if you got blocked by other minion (not only vampire, imagine nocturn / legionnaire) you (1) got no pool (2) lost a turn for 10-cap vampire requiring multiturn setup.

- The plan "weaken the predator by turn 6 in the perfect scenario" then bleed the prey with base bleeds of avg. < 2 is very questionable, because... there are 3 other players on the table and your prey were free to do anything (no pool / combat pressure from you).

So much this!

Even the "normal" Stanislava deck tends to get low on pool. But it packs an awesome stealcth/anti-combat module and can really inflict a horrendous amount of pool damage during a turn. Love your Anatheme idea though.

Stani is your main gun, she should always be brought up first. The "Govern chain" used to bring the next one(s) more cheaply and quickly.


I've been pondering a combat Stani deck with the intention of torporizing and right away graverobbing vampires. Have serious doubts about it and it'll most likely be nowehre near as good as the "regular" Stani decks...

If you haven't actually given a couple of tries to playing the 25th Anniversary deck I STRONGLY suggest you do a couple of times and hopefully notice that the deck will mostly flow like a dream and work so much better than your deck. It is only, like, in the handful of top Tier 1 decks... ;)

Finnish :POT: Politics!
