Who said mill isn't consistent?
This deck was born of wondering what Tywin + Greensight was like. I decided to go whole hog for the mill and added each pillage card I could find. I played it once against Vince Tee and managed to mill him, so decided to take it to a tournament.
Dragons Tail, Without his Beard and the Lannisport Guard force your opponent to draw cards. I've had multiple Dragons Tails cancelled by HJs and that being the correct decision instead of on a Tears. Time of Plenty & Late Summer Feast (sort of) do the same.
When you have around 15 or fewer cards in the opponent's deck (which is public knowledge) you can flip Annals and recur all the events (3 dragons tails + greensight + draw is 9 cards by marshalling). Often you close on this turn or in the draw phase afterwards - you can flip Time of Plenty to get rid of four cards.
You very rarely win by getting to 15 - try and win Pillage challenges on defence, claim as little power as possible to slow the game down. Tywin allows the Tickler and the Mountain to control the board.
Trigger Greensight pretty much every turn unless its your first copy of Tywin. In mulitple games I've discarded a Tyrion first turn and my opponent's have looked at me like I'm mad. Tywin allows you to control the board as above, and allows you to filter draw through Greensight - you get your best card and your opponent the worst.
In testing and then the first tournament I played 13 games: 2 regular win, 7 mills, 4 loss. I made top 4 at Aldershot.
The deck struggled with fast decks (Tyrell, for instance). My other competitive loss was to a NW Crossing that Riddled my Valar and could capitalize from there (goodbye Tywin, Tyrion, the Mountain and the Tickler!)
I showed the deck to Isian Hasmuja and he took it to the Brighton Charity Joust and made second (alcohol beat him in the final). Its been played to slightly less success elsewhere, though everyone has commented how much fun it is to play (though not to play against!)
The original build had Wildling Hordes but their action was basically pointless and they were too expensive, so they got dropped for the Scholars. We've tried Off to Gulltown for more power icons, and Confiscation and Close Call to protect Tywin, but none really pulled their weight. This version is roughly how I last played it, but there are a number of flex slots in the characters (Pycelle over Shae for instance).
I considered the deck for Euros, and a number of friends encouraged me to play it but with the ascendency of Tyrell the deck is too fragile to take, so I've decided to publish it instead. If I make multiple Regionals, expect it!
I talk about this deck briefly on episode 85 of Banter Behind the Throne: https://soundcloud.com/banterbehindthethrone/episode-85-fergie-turn-1
