(My first deck) was created by LadyVTES
Hello everyone,

New to the forum and hoping a few of the more knowledgeable players can lend me a hand here. Am a new player too (i love Malkavian lore) and just geting (I am limited to):

X1 Fall of London
X2 Malkavian New Blood
X1 Malkavian Fifth Edition
X1 Pact with Nephandi
X1 Parliament of Shadows
X1 25th Anniversary

I am seeking advice regarding building decks (tournament deck): I don't like politics/votes

Any comments would be greatly appreciated!

P.D: I don't know how to use ardb, sorry. My English is also bad.

Looks pretty decent to me ... the only thing I have my doubts about is the 2nd copy of secure haven (i dont like to play too many doubles of unique cards).
heart of nizchetus would also be great to cycle but not crypt accelerating like govern or bleed forwards.
If available i would swop a cloak for a swallowed by the night (also provides a maneuver and sometimes that is enough to survive a combat if lucky). Also 1 copy of hide the mind would be useful to cancel a auspex card (read bounce).

Depending on your local meta, this should be fine, unless you face a lot of rush combat.

=====================================
2x Abraham Mellon 8 AUS DOM OBF for tha Malkavian:6
2x Gilbert Duane 7 AUS DOM OBF baron Malkavian:6
2x Jason "Son" Newberry 7 AUS DOM OBF pre primogen Malkavian:6
1x Darius Shirazi 6 AUS DOM obf Malkavian:5
2x Evan Klein 5 OBF aus dom pre Malkavian:6
1x Colette 5 AUS OBF dom Malkavian:6
1x Sully 4 aus dom obf Malkavian:6
1x Ashley 3 dom obf Malkavian:6


If you were not looking for specific special texts you could/should diversify you crypt a bit more.
For example, "2x Abraham Mellon" could easily be "1x Abraham Mellon, 1x Alexander Silverson" etc.

And you could improve the "Govern down" chain [which is to play "Govern the Unaligned" on superior in order to make many of your vampires appear on the board very fast].
Currently, you have 2x 8-Cap with DOM, 4x 7-Cap with DOM, 1x 6-Cap with DOM, 3x 5-Cap with dom, 1x 4-Cap with dom, 1x 3-Cap with dom.
I would change "4x 7-Cap with DOM, 1x 6-Cap with DOM, 3x 5-Cap with dom" to "3x or 2x 7-Cap with DOM, 2x or 3x 6-Cap with DOM, 2x 5-Cap with dom".

As mentioned, the crypt being few multiples would be ideal. Replace 1 Evan 1 Jason with andi and gelasia?
Maybe swap Alex in for an Abraham. There's a Nosferatu that has :OBF: :DOM: in this grouping, if you can get 1 to swap for a Gilbert.

Maybe swap a haven for a wider view.

Most else is meta dependent. I'd do 4 spying mission if you get bounced alot.

Other cards you may obtain from players who have extra to give would be effective management, command of the beast(or a single leverage), and veil the legions.
You're bleeding as much as possible, most players know that :DOM: means the minion can bleed for 6 with 2 cards, so the non limited +1 bleed modifiers throw off thier "survival math".
The archetype is nearly 30 years old, and still effective. Speaking of your meta, cards like Delaying Tactics are handy in vote heavy tables, you should have some.

Otherwise, the mentioned cards.

Have fun!
