Deck Name: HoS Antediluvian Awakening/Jack
Author: Jakob Haley
A rebuild of my origional harbingers tap and bleed. Things didn't work out well with the last deck, so I'm going to try another angle.

Any suggestions for combat or equipment cards. I need to add some aggravated damage and maybe some pulled fangs?
I'm open to more allies, Akhen was on hand and fit the bill.
Would a couple Masquer allies be worth it?
I've included bleed for a lunge to oust.
Any help would be appreciated.

You could give the Secret Library a try.
Maybe look for "50%+", "Harbinger of Skull", "Tournament with 10+ participants", "Smiling Jack" and see what you will find.

Wouldn't really consider this a Jack deck. The deck is not good at blocking and terrible at surviving combat. If anything, the deck is kind of bleedy, looking at Fortitude for evasion.

As a fake Jack deck, that could be something. It's an important decision to make because if a real blocky deck, I'd drop all of your actions, where a fake blocky deck I can see the Force of Will possibilities.

As for weapons, .44 is solid, Ivory Bow is an annoyance, WWS is free, then start to get more questionable, though Sniper Rifle when blocking is a thing.

I've had some success with self-nuking HoS, though the recent efforts were with Blessed Resilience and group 4/5. This is an old version, don't recall if I played this or just changed an earlier build. Trochomancy obviously didn't exist in 2004.

Blocking harbinger decks are super doable, but you have to decide if its worth it. Trochomancy is appealing, block fail, a +2 hand size equipment.... All good for walls. Stealth or intercept for a blood is cool too. Butthey have :for: :aus: like !ventrue and both flavors of salubri. That means buddies are easy to cut in a crypt. But they have :NEC: instead of :vall: :dom: or :obe:. Necromancy sucks, so what puts harbinger above other choices besides contesting?
With g2, I like abbot. under siege is cool too for an all sabbat group, and Matthias has :nec: :AUS: :FOR: to help with +1 intercept.

I ran group 4-5 for awhile with Mordechai ben-nun, crows, traps, deepsongs, sticks, ans sense the savage way with eyes of argus. Defending jack is important, so standing intercept, cards that are wake and or interceptin one card, and not running out of pool, so pb monty and Barranquilla are good too.
Just decide what harbingers will support your style wall.
