Winner, Seattle/Denver Spring Tourneys 2019, Day 2

Deck was fun and resilient. If I were to play it again, I would include one more anti-location card (either Unnatural Disaster or a second Dominate Kine) and one or two bits of intercept (maybe KRCG and an Eyes of the Night). Oh, and a Great Symposium would be a nice add as well.

30 Ashur Tablets :lol:

I like the variety of +stealth and block denial.

:gang: :CEL: :FOR: :PRO: :cap6: Gangrel. Noddist. Camarilla. Once each turn, LivesByProxy may burn 1 blood to lose Protean :PRO: until the end of the turn and gain your choice of superior Auspex :AUS:, Obfuscate :OBF:, or Potence :POT: for the current action.

Got a request from Karl for a summary of this tournament win, or, more to the point, an explanation of how a midcap S+B Ashur deck with 57 masters could win a table alongside Arika and two Giovanni bleed decks. Here’s the skinny.

1. My predator (Burt), drew no early-game acceleration and brought out Arika first. I immediately Pentexed her and the Pentex stuck for a couple of turns.
2. My prey (Geoff, piloting Setite bleed/Entice) was packing bleed reduction but no bounce, so he was the bleed sink at a bleed-heavy table.
3. Grayson (Giovanni bleed w/Talbot’s) scored the first VP against the weakened Arika deck.
4. Darby (Giovanni power-bleed with Le Dinh Tho and Lisandro G.) scored the second VP with huge bleeds against Grayson, who had spent a fair amount of pool on allies, vamps and equipment.
5. Geoff had out a Form of Corruption with a couple counters by now. I was making sure to bleed him every turn so that every time Darby landed a bleed, the Form would gain a counter. The idea of possibly losing Le Dinh Tho to the Form pissed Darby off, so he deliberately uncorked some “irresponsible” bleed.
6. I had already recycled a Deflection to hand with my first set of Ashurs, and had drawn into 2 more, so I was ready for Darby’s lunge. He knocked out most of Geoff’s pool, and I finished him off with a Govern+Bonding.
7. For the heads up, I had already bloated a good amount thanks to Specialization and Liquidation. I also had some bleed in hand, and used it. By the time my second set of Ashurs went off (yes, I only popped 2 sets that game), Darby was low on pool, so the only thing I bothered to grab from the ash heap was a Conditioning for the win.

Long story short, I had good seating and a good draw. It was a fun final, and well-played all around.
