file A new Player with bunch of old cards - Deck Feedback Please

07 Oct 2021 17:05 - 07 Oct 2021 17:06 #103459 by Lankweird

I am a new player and have tried to put a deck together using some old cards that I've got a hold of, as well as some new ones I've purchased recently. I suspect this deck is a bit of a mess, but I'd appreciate any feedback which could help make it better. My crypt is entirely made up of G1 and 2 Tremere, so this may put me at a serious disadvantage from the get go.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, even if it means starting from scratch, or just getting hold of new preconstructed decks.

Thanks in advance.

The crypt is awkward, but I can see trying it out.

Mostly, I'd replace all of the discipline cards with Villeins and replace 2-3 Walk of Flame with Rego Motus or something else that might be useful in combat. Otherwise, it's okay for running general Trem stuff.

Thanks for your feedback very much appreciated. Any thoughts on what I can do with the crypt?

Group 1/2 most appealing options in a discipline plus other good stuff sense:

Tremere - a most unexciting collection for generic goodness
Blythe Candelaria
Sarah Cobbler
Aisling Sturbridge
Muaziz (for special)
Justine, Elder of Dallas
Ulugh Beg, The Watcher

Bryan Van Duesen
Kij Dansky
Ayalea, The Manipulator

!Trem are better on disciplines. Few things to want: Govern down chain; AUS w/ THA for defense.

But, there are just different directions can go in. Can more cheap minions, more starrish, just run like 4-6 different options and run Wider View, switch to group 2/3. The feature of the deck that makes deciding harder is that there's no specific need you have - the deck is very general in its plays. You simultaneously want every discipline at superior and don't need that, though it depends. I'd look to try to get four minions in play with at least two having one of the three disciplines at superior.

This is why you can just try playing something and decide which vamps are going to frustrate you the most by their cost, disciplines, or whatever. Metagame is going to matter. If you were going to run this in some national championships this weekend, I could see caring more about specific crypt composition. You have lots of strong library cards that might come together or might not.

Thanks a million for getting back again.

I'll have a play around with the crypt and some of the library cards over the next few days and test out the deck with my friends in our next game.

VTES has a pretty steep learning curve, but loving getting stuck into the game.

Thanks again for your advice.

Do remember that even in majority of official tournaments you tend to be allowed to use proxy cards...
