Death Star

Highlights

This is a breed & boon anarch political deck using Alamut and Fee Stake actions to get votes, plus The Embrace and Web of Knives Recruit for breeding, Consanguineous Boon and Exclusion Principle for bloating.

The idea is to use Revolutionary Council with a lot of anarchs at hand to deliver more than a dozen pool damage in a single blow, hence the "Death Star" name.

The deck has a strong stealth module with O.

Tips & Tricks

During the beginning of the game, the deck should focus on breeding and bloating, surviving its predator.

CrimethInc and Firebrand are used to improve A&B.

Alamut should be resplenished as much as possible. Vampires with o are supposed to get some bleed through (even for 1 pool) to get tokens on it fast. If drawn, Club Illusion make these bleed stronger.

In late game, Garibaldi-Meucci Museum helps get some Revolutionary Council back in hand to finish the table.

Variants

This decklist is quite famous, as Matt Morgan won the North American Championship (NAC) first day with it, only to see Ben Peal win the final on day 2 with an almost identical decklist.

Karl Schaefer's deck from 2019 is a variant using Daughters of Cacophony instead of Assamite. Alamut, o stealth modifiers and Web of Knives Recruit are lost, but the Daughters of Cacophony have access to r vote modifiers and combat ends, Conductor, The Missing Voice, Lily Prelude and Madrigal, making up for it.

Errata

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.
