Hi, I may be jumping off the deep end here but... I've dabbled in Vtes maybe playing 3 5-man games. You might say I've become hooked, a friend of mine has a lot of cards and let me pilfer his stash to build a deck. I know it isn't competitive worthy but if all of y'all see some glaring holes that need to be filled please let me know what they are and how I can plug them appropriately. Please and thank you!

There's not enough wake up cards and too many other reaction cards. You combat could really use some consolidating, it got a bit of everything and will be unreliable.

Take a look at other Tremere decks to see how the distribution and priority is spread out. Here's a good example:

I don't mind that your combat is a bit all-over-the-place, that's a good way to get a feel for what works, but I'd get rid of some of the second round only cards -- like maybe lose Drain Essence and Eldritch Glimmer -- because you can't always get to the second round, and Drain Essence isn't enough better than Theft of Vitae to justify it.

Also the reaction package should be trimmed. Six Eagle's Sight is too many, and you don't need the Telepathic Counters since you have Deflection and Telepathic Misdirection. Add a few more wakes.

Finally, I don't think you'd regret having a few Bonding or Conditioning, and more Govern the Unaligned is better than fewer.

I second the posters above. You need to increase the number of "On the Qui vive" and "wake with evening's freshness" a LOT. There should be 1-2 more of them than you have bleed bounce cards.

Fast reaction and minor irritation are quite poor in my opinion. You have loads of bleed bounce (10), meaning you will likely not need "telepathic counter" either. There is probably a bit too many of these even, considering your deck also has lots of combat and intercept. In any case you want more wakes/untaps.

You could also try to thin the deck down to 80 cards, until you get the card ratios right.
