Kiasyd

The Kiasyd and their unique x discipline are quite close to the Lasombra, so they've been included in Lasombra deck as additional vampires, but also led to an archetype of their own, the Kiasyd Stealth & Bleed. Compared to the Lasombra, x provides more bleed and stealth options and less combat options than p.

Highlights

Dame Hollerton

played in 70 decks, typically 1-2 copies

A solid £D combination for just 5 pool, she is even often included in Lasombra  decks.

Isanwayen

played in 50 decks, typically 1-3 copies

All clan disciplines at superior £DX for just 6 pool, he also has a rare ability that can provide an additional Master action. He sometimes get included in decks for this ability alone.

Stone Travel

played in 45 decks, typically 2-6 copies

It is included in most Kiasyd decks and even in Lasombra + Kiasyd mixes as it can also be used at $. Additional stealth from x is one of the main point of using Kiasyd instead of Lasombra.

Great Symposium

played in 37 decks, typically 1 copy

Often included when playing four or more Kiasyds in the crypt — it has no burn option and can jam the hand if no Kiasyd is out yet. This is a 3 pool bloat, a high value for a Master card.

Pherydima

played in 31 decks, typically 1-3 copies

A good disciplines combination at a reasonable price — she is often included in Kiasyd only crypts.

Aura Absorption

played in 33 decks, typically 2-6 copies

The intercept feature can come in handy in some cases, but this card is mostly used for yet another source of stealth

Fae Contortion

played in 32 decks, typically 3-7 copies

Yet another stealth source, with a combat option that can come in handy in certain constructs. The ability to cancel an Immortal Grapple can save a vampire, even if it is not the main point of the card.

Omme Enberbenight

played in 29 decks, typically 1-3 copies

Good disciplines combination and an excellent ability in pure Kiasyd crypts, for a very reasonnable 7 pool.

Roderick Phillips March

played in 29 decks, typically 1-2 copies

A good disciplines combination for pure Kiasyd crypts, although his ability is rarely used.

The Arcadian

played in 27 decks, typically 1-3 copies

Although a bit expensive with his 8 pool cost, he has all clan disciplines at superior and an excellent ability that let him deliver deadlier bleeds to the prey.

Gremlins

played in 25 decks, typically 1-6 copies

Not used in all Kiasyd constructs, as d gives access to better bleed actions, its +1 stealth bonus can still be the cornerstone of a stealth & bleed strategy. Combined with Bonding, it results in a solid 3 bleed and 2 stealth action.

Song of Pan

played in 25 decks, typically 2-4 copies

A nice boost for a lunge move, it is a classic inclusion for pure Kiasyd decks. Again, the lack of a burn option makes it difficult to include in mixed Lasombra decks.
