What about the flavor of the decks?


I'm guessing that most of current players care more about power level and efficacy than flavor and other considerations (note the proliferation of mixed clan decks as an example). I would posit that this is a result of VTES never doing a perfect job of conveying theme (where are all of the mortal retainers for Camarilla vampires, who specialize in manipulating mortals?). But personally, I love this idea. Theme-first is how I prefer to play. Although I suppose summoning up Tutu the Doubly Evil One and buying him a camera phone (the premise of my last tournament deck) might not be all that thematic.... :(

As a side note, Aching Beauty and Zephyr could make for an interesting combo.... Hell, gun nuts could even throw those in to punish blockers before untapping.

Check out my VTES blog: Gaming with BS

I also host a google doc which separates the TWDA into clans . That means I track how often clans win, which crypt groups get used, and how many people attend events. You can access all of that info here:

The best is Aching Beauty + Torrent. The pain is real.

Cam could work like this:
-Brujah vote featuring Dmitra and Co, parity shift, 2nd trad, etc. (works with !Tor, also has Camarilla utility cards)

The issue I see is that Dmitra is already almost too common so it would increase the already abundant contesting of that crypt. Ie: there are not enough working Brujah archetypes. Theres eurobrujah, theres Dmitra & co, and thats about it. I'd rather see a deck that doesnt hinge on Dmitra, with some brand new vampires.

-Toreador guns wall (works with Tzim or !Tor)

Id rather see a toreador grand ball vote/block. With the better art for grand ball. :)

-Gangrel swarm (animalism crosses over with Tzim)
if 5:

Not sure what this even is, but a deep song deck with animalism combat should be pretty decent deck. It would let us reprint aid from bats. The issue is that were already drowning in deep songs... at least I am. Im convinced the anarch revolt spam animalism deep song rush deck is already an archetype, but I'm not sure would I want to see that in precons.

-Ventrue vote (can cross over with some Lasombra cards)

YES!

Isn't Brujah Debate an actually good card? It just lacks support and good crypt options lest in G1? It's a bit of an unexplored territory for Brujah, and could be reintroduced.

Are Brujah even going to remain Camarilla in Gr. 6?
