Seems like something has gotten into the VEKN website... It's been like this for the last 5 hours at least. So if people don't know, there you go.

Maybe the Hunters are out...

DECK: Followers of the Fist

Deck Name : Followers of Fist
Author : Juggernaut1981
Description :
This is an idea that came to me last night. There have been a few Typhonic Beast type decks making an appearance in my meta, but they are basically just "Raaargh Must Smash!" and don't really have a "kill trigger".

So instead I was thinking... Form of Corruption and Temptation both check for blood... There are quite a few snakes with Potence now... why not merge Horseshoes, Touch of Pain and Temptation/FoC into something fun and nasty and a variation on Matt Barnett's Famous Spirit Marionette of Death deck (Spirit Marionette backwards into your predators minion that you use to then bleed your prey with a Day Op or similar... after you gave your predator's minion Fortitude).

So the plan is to use my predator's minions, put Enrage on them (or just make them bleed) and then use my predator's guys to "part the vampire waters" in front of me. Then kill by having a swarm of Waters of the Duat turning around and bleeding with a Dream World in play.

Counters for All...

I've been tinkering with some artwork, and a variety of other things, and I've started creating counters that you could use with your games. I'm thinking that it might be worth making one for Contracts as well (but I'd recommend you laminate them and then use either a dry-erase OR a non-permanent OHP Pen to name the vampire with the Contract). They are all intended to be placed underneath the Crypt Card and have the left-edge showing (300dpi printing for the correct scale).

Here is the first one: Corruption Counter. The idea is that you would place counters on this card to be the corruption counters.

VTES-Play Moments

Its all about how you use it...
Corine Marcon rush Lambach via a Haven Uncovered. Trap, Close Range, Body Arsenal, Telepathic Tracking... end result... Corine Marcon takes 1 agg, Lambach takes 3 agg...

It seemed like such a GOOD idea...
Nergal is a Famed Vampire. He declares an action and gets around my paltry +1 intercept. Then he gets blocked by Donal O'Connor on his Domain. Surprise! Nergal was Daring the Dawn to do this... and sends himself to torpor. (-3 pool at this point...). A debate starts about rescuing, who might eat Nergal, who would save who from eating Nergal... finally a cross-table deal is met which basically hangs Nergal out to dry. I then soak up the 1 pool damage. (I am playing an AUS-DOM-THA deck). I then turn around and declare.... Superior Graverobbing on my Predator's Nergal... But that Daring the Dawn seemed to be such a good idea at the time...
