file Deck Building challenge: Sylvester Simms

04 Apr 2018 09:00 - 04 Apr 2018 13:17 #86151 by Whisker
Hello all,
Because of family reasons I have not been able play any VtES recently, but I have been amusing myself by coming up with convoluted ideas for decks. Here one of my latest demented plots, use Sylvester Simms special as an actual oust mechanish.

Make sylvester go torpor several times each turn, to remove pool from whole table, bleed hard enough to make sure your prey is first to fall and bloat so you don't die yourself. That's the basic premise. I'd like to see your take on this. Below is my first draft to use as starting point, though it's still missing the bloat / survival part.

Cheers, let your inner Malkavians loose.

Sylvester Simms
ani dom pre AUS OBF
Malkavian
Capacity: 8
Group: 1
Camarilla primogen: If Sylvester goes into torpor, each Methuselah burns 1 pool.

Deck Name: Sylvester Simms torpor machine v0.1
Author: Mikko Moisander
Description:
Put fortitude on Sylvester. Bleed, hunt or do table actions and each time play daring the dawn to sent sylvester in torpor netting damage to whole table. Repeat as many times as you can rescue sylvester and untap him. Hopefully your actions hurt your prey faster than other players, you included.

What about using AUS to stay alive longer and pressure your prey more. By using AUS + fortitude support vamps you can do that. Also there's good synergy with NEC / OBE here:



Also a few conditionings wouldn't hurt:

Using lord of serenity could work quite well, I had decent results with it in gangel "torpor Olympics" style decks with catacombs and humanitas.(they add stealth, unsure if it actually reduced the card cost, its been awhile, but I feel like you still have to pay for it...)
You could cut in spirit marionette action with the outferior usable as a computer hacking as well.

I understand that Baltimore Purge (BP) not only puts you in torpor, but creates a bunch of table actions, some of which can give you blood.

..And if you are using BP and have fortitude on Sylvester (SS), Renewed Vigor is a good add. SS can use it at outferior to bounce right back from torpor during untap, and if you have a wingman with OBE, you can use it to fill him, which you will likely need to do if he is traveling in and out of torpor so much. I see you have one in your deck already; that’s a start!

Cheers!
