The loss against Bitterbridge was one we counted on, to win the matchup you need to draw 2x FroZo + atleast 1x Varys, which I didn't. Targ being a very volatile matchup I was very fortunate to be able to slug through 3 of them in the tournament. On the other hand I lost to one of my comfort-matchups in Greyjoy ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The core of the deck is very very strong, The Water Gardens gave the deck a big upswing. The big change we made with the new pack was adding Ramsay Snow. After playing around with him a lot we started running The First Snow of Winter and it was 'love at first test'.
We also moved away from Dohaeris, it just doesn't do much for the victory condition. Quite early we also started to add Varys to have better matchups vs Greyjoy and Night's Watch and quickly after we found Valar Morghulis to be redundant.
My big contribiution to the deck was the removal of Counting Coppers. I've found the 2 gold plots (CC & VM) to be too much of a tempoloss to be worth it and have added more economy plots(Riddle, Routes & FFF) - reliable 5 gold plot is very important and gives you the gold needed to spend on your tools. Secret Schemes and Trader+The First Snow/Flea Bottom is enough sustain in most matches but Bara's Hand Destruction can be an issue.
A big difference from the other versions is my 3x Arya(Core) & Nymeria. I also 2x instead of 3x Arianne until we got word on how Ryan would rule on the Ramsay + Arianne interaction which made me mind less to draw Arianne dupes.
The Elia / HH / FBH / Tears / NM slot is very much up to personal preference and can be entirely cut if need be.
- Vengeance is better vs aggresive decks and on the First Snow turn
- Tears is better vs Bara/Greyjoy/Stark + very solid overall with Nymeria Sand, Darkstar & Spies
- Harrenhal (GoH) is better with Valar or if you can play it and Varys on the same turn.
- Forgotten by History needs more testing, but have performed well. 3x Gardens is recommended as a pairing.
A big thank you to Team Martell and The All Blacks for the testing, tuning and theorcrafting. This also includes our recruited helpers: Plamen Marekov, Kyle Duncan, Zack Decoto, Jakob Hultman, Kevin Richardson, Rabs, Jakob Wåhleman
Feel free to ask questions, there is definitely a science to playing the deck - we have a big team, lots of testing and pages of discussions to fall back on.
