Haqim's law: retribution is another new, strong, clan-specific card. I applaud this sort of card design. It basically looks to create a new deck archetype, which I really like. This is what VTES needs to keep the game moving forward. 

Its very useful that BH now have a way to cycle their combat cards without getting into combat. Also cycle a combat card during bleed hoping to hit another bleed card.. 

Hunter's mark is a card that may find its way into other decks than BH... Made me go check what did Thaumaturgy have in the "can't be used during first round" department.. 

Hunger of marduk is practically better than taste of vitae for rush decks that can play it, since it can't be avoided, unlike taste (which can be avoided by preventing the damage). 

However, Banu are still lacking in damage prevention, which is probably the biggest reason why they won't become "too" strong. But regardless gotta give big thumbs up for the designers and playtesters. 


ps. You are missing some line breaks there..

Haqim Law : Retribution boost any Assamites based combat deck in order to make more than 1 VP in a game. Great cards.

I lke the set of little untitled Vampire, they fit good in order to go anarch and play "Diversion" and "Bollix".

Dunno what we can do with that Justicar. He can cycle politics cards , but dunno if it's a gppd investment for a justicar.

Haquim Law is fine.

Everything else are bad - there are still no reasonable point in combining :cel with :obf (and :obf with :tau), no valid defence in assamite discipline spread and no point in using melee weapons.

Small :obf: princes can be combined with other such dorks from :nosf: and :malk: to make some alternative crypt for a royalty deck spamming parity shifts.

a Rush with a built in S:CE prevention is pretty awesome.  I'll be looking to make it work somehow after I get the decks.
