This is an entry in the Bibliodèque project.
The archetype has consistently won tournaments: here is the analysis of a tournament-winning decklist of the archetype instead.
This is an allies bleed deck using Bima with Dominate to play a profusion of Govern the Unaligned and Deflection.
Bima gets no stealth but the sheer number of actions — and the fact that he has a strenght of 2 — makes it quickly difficult for the prey to block everything.
The deck has serious stealth, with most vampires having o, and even plays Cloak the Gathering and Veil the Legions that can beneficiate the Bima.
Most vampires of the crypt also have D and build a nice chain for Govern the Unaligned: Halim Bey can help get everyone out fast and cheap using the superior version.
Tips & Tricks
Waters of Duat make for additional minions with d since the Dominate card is available in such numbers.
Conditioning is used for the lunge and can even be used by Bima if they didn't use Govern the Unaligned beforehand.
The high number of Deflection and Delaying Tactics makes for a sturdy defence. Keeping a minion or two unlocked to play is critical.
The archetype is seldom played and not many variations exist. The number of Bima in respects to Waters of Duat can vary and Perfectionist can be included to help the Followers of Set get some blood back. Ivor Blockley's deck from 2008 is another example.
Pentex™ Subversion has been modified by an errata in September 2019. It does not prevent a vampire to act anymore, so it is less powerful . Its ability to disable a strong blocker is still an important aspect so it can have its place here.
