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 a stealth & bleed deck using Tunnel Runner. An Akunanse is required to get the weremoles out, and Jacob Fermor is expected to come out and boost their bleed power. Computer Hacking is used to help them bleed harder, too.
The deck relies on additional vampires with d for Deflection bounces. As the deck does not block so much, this is essential for defence.
Tips & Tricks
As the deck is supposed to get an Akunanse, Jacob Fermor then a low capacity vampire with d, it has a bit of each in the crypt and plays a bunch of Wider View and an Anarch Convert to rotate through them if necessary.
Tunnel Runner are expensive allies, getting Powerbase: Tshwane and/or Charisma out fast is a lot of help.
Predator's Transformation provides additional stealth to get the allies into play without being blocked.
Aid from Bats is used as a defensive combat card. Tunnel Runner can use it, but most Akunanse also can. The allies have The Unmasking and the Akunanse their Predator's Communion for some tactical intercept — vampires that do not fight aggressively, as they have very few combat capabilities themselves.
There is no variant to this deck. The decklist given in example won the 2013 North American Championship (NAC).
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.
