file Hall of Mirrors (ANI-CHI deck with Netwar)

10 Feb 2016 10:22 #75389 by Ankha
Deck Name : Hall of Mirrors
Author : Ankha
Description :
The anarch part is here to give the various vampires the missing level of CHI or ANI and to use Netwar whose [aus] effect is cool.
The goal is to either move forward (maybe I'd add some Monkey Wrench for extra surprise) or backwards with the Deep Song, depending on how aggressive the predator is, and use the ANI combat module efficiently with the Hall of Mirrors to avoid a S:CE on the first round.

The proportions are inspired by one of Hugh's deck because it saves me time to have the right ones.

Cards from the Anarch Unbound set are displayed in bold.

Seems nice.
I'm certainly not the best to comment on deck creation but i would replace Kumpania for an Anarch Free Press as it's more versatil.

It looks really solid.
The Mole is pretty good on ani, instead of forced awakening.

Mole, The
Reaction
Animalism/Celerity/Dominate
Requires a ready anarch. Only usable when a non-anarch minion is acting.
[ani] Only usable by a tapped vampire. This vampire untaps and attempts to block.
[cel] +1 intercept. Not usable if the acting minion has Celerity [cel].
[dom] Only usable when you are being bled by a younger vampire. Tap this vampire to cause the action to fail.

I'm hesistating. I'm expecting to see a lot more of anarch vampires, so the "only usable" clause is quite restrictive. Since I won't be playing the other disciplines, I'd rather stick to the requirement-less wake cards.

I dig that you're using Chavi. 40 red cards is a lot,,but they should move. Draba as a one of makes me nervous, as its one of the most overlooked chi cards there is.
Seems solid, and I'd use vigil or rats over the mole here. Atonement? I see 5 support minions not named anarch convert who can use it to keep weenie whatever's in check.I'll admit neighbor john or "about to merge" Tariq are stronger, but could help.

I have fairly similar deck, without the anarch angle though, and it is quite decent. First thing I would like to ask though is do you really need to have that much variety in the crypt? You don't really have much pool gain there so I can't imagine you getting more than 3-4 vampires out in most games, so why not tighten up the crypt and focus on the vampires that have the discplines you want? Which would also let you get rid of all the field trainings. I would also go for group 6 rather than 4 to get you Dhita and Sanjay that are just perfect for the discplines you are going for. Vasiliy would be something to consider too, his specials are really strong. I would also switch couple raven spies to murder of crows, and whether you do or not, that many retainers definetily calls for some pack alphas so you don't need to waste too many actions getting them.
