First of all I would like to praise and thank the organization team of the event. It was absolutely awesome and I strongly recommend you to come to Barcelona next year, you will have great fun. And secondly I would like to say that I really enjoyed the tournament and that it is a pleasure and a privilege to do this surrounded by friends. To win is nice, but to have fun and be amongst friends is much better. HAIL TO THE OLD GUARD!
Sorry but I cannot remember the pairings too well so I will not report them, 11 matches are a lot and I am getting old but I will make some comments on the deck if someone is interested. The good thing is that I run 0 restricted cards so the deck is still playable.
2 economy plots, nearly always open with Noble Cause. Trade Routes to replenish the board after a reset.
Forced March is just brutal, lots of 2 cost shenanigans to take full advantage of the plot, including the crappy Salty Navigators. I am considering to add a second copy of the plot.
The King in the North, a really good plot, however now everybody has kings (except Martell or NW but there weren’t a lot and I never crossed one) and was not an impactful plot during the tournament. Maybe I will change it for a second Forced or a Weapons at the Door (Qohor is so strong right now) depending on the new meta.
Valar Morghulis, my reset, won me a lot of games, sometimes even in turn 1. Do not hesitate to play it when you have the opportunity, be aggresive with it.
Supporting the Faith is an absolutely key plot against Targaryen, it really wrecks their turn and I was expecting a lot of them. Ideally play it in the Blood of the Dragon turn.
Nothing Burns like the Cold, really good plot also in this deck as you can leverage it with the Newly Made Lords and the We do not Sow. Key in a lot of moments also. Lots of times can even be your opener.
The plot deck is the thing that I am more proud and satisfied with, it worked the whole day, you have a tool for nearly every situation.
I would just comment on the few things that stand out.
3 Old Victarion, he is so good, ok there is Breaking Ties but it is definetly worth the risk in my opinion. A true MVP the whole day.
2 Salty Navigators, they are crap I know, but i wanted to maximize my Forced March and I didn’t want to play 2-costers with 1 STR with so many Targs.
1 Hagen’s Daughter, not so convinced about her, not important during the day, maybe Aeron (Core) would have been a better choice.
The rest I think are self-explanatory. Just let me say that Drowned God Fanatics are SO GOOD. They put GJ at a whole another level.
The usual suspects, maybe I regret the Iron Victory, was useless in nearly all the matches, however to save Victarion discarding to power and gain another one is hilarious. The Iron Fleet Scouts where absolutely key, I strongly reccomend to never cut them. Same goes for Great Kraken, always so key.
Important for more King characters to run the plot, some mil and power grab, protection for burn and more possibilities to stop Rattleshirt.
Usual stuff here, no big changes, how good is to play We do not Sow with Fealty in the Supporting the Faith turn. I considered Pay the Iron Price as it is a really good meta call but I like to play always 3x and 1 copy in a deck that doesn’t draw is too random for me.
I think it is a very solid and stable deck, but it is not flashy or out-of-the box. It is fun and you can adapt to a lot of different situations, I love mid-range decks and this defnitely is. If someone has questions do not hesitate to ask. Thanks to everybody.
