This is the deck I took to the Battles at Summerhall tournament held in Aldershot, UK and ran by Martin Lewis:

As soon as Tokar was spoilt, I knew I had to build deck with this as it's lynchpin. The card given the worse possible rating by the esteemed CardGameDB reviews and described as "terrible, terrible" by the White Book podcast but what do they know ;-)
I played about 25 games with Tokar proxied before the HoT box was released so I was able to develop and optimise my deck.
The aim of the game is to get Dany or Drogo and Voltron them up as soon as possible. I muliganed decent 5 card set-ups if it didn't have my Voltran.
Supporting the Faith is my control plot with allows me to ignore Fleabottom, Nightmares, We Do Not Sow, ambush etc while I can threaten Dracarys! It provides 6 gold as well and the low reserve isn't so much of an issue from turn 2.
Unexpected Delay can work really well but sometimes is a dead plot. In 2 games, I played it turn 1 and it pretty much was gg from that point.
Ser Barristan Selmy (LoCR) was key against Kevin's Martell Wolf deck who had Ghaston Grey in play during both games - Kevin drew lots of cards in our games so Barristan was alway able to win 3 challenges on offence while my Voltron sat back.
Irri was awesome too.
My Most Valuable Card was Tokar off course. I faced a fair few Confiscations and they generally chose a Tokar, leaving Seal of the Hand and Bodyguards behind, my Warrior's Braid was confiscated once as well. I got Khal Drogo to 10 STR in a few games and got Dany to 11 STR in one game. I never achieved the dream of having 2 Tokars on a character.
As a Targaryen Loyalist, I really struggle to play against Stark. Catelyn, Bran, Robb and Winterfell screw my plans over and Eddard can get 2 challenges in when Jon Snow is about which is really brutal. I faced of against Dan Williams Stark Fealty for the King of Swiss title and again in the final.
In the final, I knew 6 of Dan's plots so I felt I had a chance Unfortunately, I made some bad plays and Dan took it. All credit to Dan for going undefeated and having the stamina to play really well all day.
A big shout out to the London Crosse Keys Meta for letting me proxy Tokar in our regular casual games!
