This beast had awesome result in my old playgroup so I wanted to develop a more advanced version of it.

Basically the deck is Celerity-gun deck with support fortitude and prince/justicar cards.
The deck plays table and rushes and torporises everything.
You get no friends playing this deck.
It's a lonely existence being an Alastor.

CRYPT
5 Jaroslav Pascek
3 Madame Guil
2 Mark Decker
2 Pug Jackson
(not sure about the crypt requirements are pretty strict, there aren't many Pasceks around)


MASTERS
1 Trophy: Revered
1 Trophy: Diablerie (not sure about this, counter intuitive with alastor)
2 Trophy: Hunting ground
2 Trophy: Domain
1 DI
1 Sudden reversal
1 Archon investigation
2 Vessel
1 Archetype card (haven't decided yet, perfectionist/depravity/monster)
2 Fame
1 Tension in the ranks (not sure if 2 tensions is better than 2 fames)
1 Fortitude

ACTIONS
5 Big Game

POLITICAL ACTIONS
5 Alastor
4 Trumped-up charges
5 Anathema
5 Parity shift

ACTION MODIFIERS/REACTIONS
6 Forced march
4 Scalpel tongue
8 2nd tradition

COMBAT
12 Psyche! (this is just silly op with assault rifle and alastor)
4 Pursuit
4 Superior mettle
6 Taste of vitae
2 Disguised weapon (just for Jaroslav)

EQUIPMENT
4 Assault rifle

Baron of Riihimäki

Do you often run out of cards playing this? If not, slim it down to 76.

Consistancy. While I dislike slimming down combat decks, this one isn't a dedicated combat deck the way let's say a count Germain multirush or Eknidu multi Rush is.

You specifically pursue a combo with a few trophies out, then anathema on something red list, then alastor rush to empty and scoop a trophy. Combos like thin decks. I'm just not crazy about combos with this many pieces, regardless of deck size..... But if it works regularly, that's the size you want.

Edit: adv Xavier gets an untap and is justicar. Villeins would help you live to see the combo.

The deck does nothing without a gun, and any deck with access to +1 intercept can pretty much shut you down. With Pascek as your main vampire, I would base the deck on Disguised weapon and Parity Shift to get your pool back. If you really want Alastor, I would rather base the deck on Madam Guil and Grand Bal to make the action unblockable.

Because it helps you draw the cards you want to draw. But of course, if you tend to deck yourself out of the game it´s not good. But people seldom do that, and yet they build 90 card decks all the time. No idea why.
