How Can a deck be both funny and competitive? Easy: first you marshal an innocent handmaiden, then boost her with strength, military icon, renown, intimidate, stealth and the possibility to do 4 challenges in a round. Growing your board by length is for boys, growing your board by height is for handmaidens! That's the plan of this deck, nothing more and nothing less!
The usual plotline is: at the gates-exchange-fortified-king in the north-valar. You can also play king before fortified, it depends on the situations. Against a KoS deck, play Barring instead of exchange, because you cannot give the opponent time to do his things, too risky. Play Pentoshi after a reset, like Valar or First snow.
Game scheme: During the setup/first round, choose a Voltron among Doreah, Irri, Jhiqui and Missandei. The chosen one will receive lots of attachments and will serve you toward the victory. Open with At the Gates and put in play Gates of the Moon; if you already have it, go for Dragon Gate. If you have Gifts for the Widow, the first attachment you need to search is Queensguard, the second is Tokar. Then you need Syrio's Training, the second Tokar and Dragon Skull. In this way, your maiden will reach str 12, that could be enough, but if you can attach other things... do it! Once you've done this, follow the plot line described above and gain as much powers as possible winning power challenges, domination and renown.
What cards must discard? Discard the cards you don't need in the current matchup.
How to draw? Exchange of Information is the first draw engine, then you can do the Dragon gate-King's Landing recursion, or play To Go Forward You Must Go Back when you need it. Remember: better to have cards on hand than on board (but just stay safe against Marched to the Wall!!)
Why the Banner Kraken? Because Iron Mines are comfortable, Stealth is needed against Gj, and location control can be necessary to cancel Ghaston grey, Grey Ghost, The Black cells...
Valar Morghulis: if you're not lucky enough to save your Voltron, just simply play Pentoshi and attach everything to another handmaiden.
The First Snow of Winter: The luckiest scenario is to have your Voltron duped, and to have Breaker of Chains with Queensguard attached to it: in this case, first snow will be a normal turn for you. If you don't have dupes, just spend your money in the best way you can (f.e. playing cards from shadows or marshaling some location), then play Pentoshi the next round. Pentoshi will give you 12 golds (10 + gates of the moon), and you need just 8 golds to place a good Voltron (2 golds for the char, 3 for queensgard, 2 for the two tokar and 1 for the mil icon).
Weapons at the Door: same as first snow, just simpler.
A single reset is not a problem, but a combination of Valar and first snow can be hard if you don't see dupes/iron mines. Anyway, you need just few golds to fill your board, horizontally or vertically.
** FUTURE DIRECTIONS**
During the tournament, I realized that Hagen's Daughter, Hired Assassin and Black Market Merchant are useless: I suggest to replace them with 3 Wildling Scout (I lost in the top8 because I didn't see the Saltcliffe Sailor, so I think that more stealth is necessary!) and 3 one-cost card, because Bolton Flayer can be a serious problem (except during the Fortified Position turn). Also Begging Brother can be good against him or the new Yoren (TB).
Anyway, That was my European walk:
G1: W vs Martell Wars
G2: W vs Tyrell RoC
G3: W vs Gj Crossing
G4: W vs Gj Prince
G5: W vs Nightwatch Builder
G6: W vs Targa KOTHH
G7: L vs Tyrell Dragon (Combo excellently driven by Hanno. Didn't know that deck before, otherwise I would have changed my plot line)
Top 32: W vs Tyrell KoS
Top 16: W vs Nightwatch Builder
Top 8: Loss vs Gj Crossing. I had a tri-iconed, 20 STR, duped Missandei... but no stealth. The opponent had stealth, and rushed me with a serious amount of unopposed.
I hope you'll enjoy playing it. Let me know what you think writing a comment below, so we can discuss about possible problems or improvements of this deck. I love you all, Peace.
