|"Mag's Choke Slam" - A semi-viable choke deck||40||27||26||1.0|
This is the deck i played at the French National. i took inspiration from "Mag's Choke Slam" deck even though i tried to made it in my own way, especially since the release of Yoren and bound to the wall. I mostly buffed econ and draw and remove what i felt was unnecessary or too expensive. With Yoren and Bound released, the deck looked viable to me, even though, there was some work to do. I used to played NW wolf two years ago so this was a deck that i knew i would enjoy and be familiar with.
I made the cut during after swiss, ending 5W - 2L
There are probably many improvements to be made again but this version of the deck was rather stable during the whole week-end. All my losses were because of my own mistakes rather than the deck itself.
Yoren and Bound are amazing cards. Yoren especially fits perfectly the deck since you have many ways to remove him in order to play him back : Mutiny At Craster's Keep, Marched to the Wall, Breaking Ties, even Coldhands is great, so that's a second yoren trigger.
Against a NW player the best use i made of Yoren was trigger Yoren on some of my opponent three coster, then Janos the three coster, then Coldhands yoren, guarding the realm on the three coster to have him back, then get rid of coldhands to have yoren back for a second trigger.
Without going that further, Yoren and Coldhands just works perfectly together as long as you find a way to get rid of the characters you stole with yoren.
The plotline is somewhat arguable since with Maester Aemon (WotW), we might want to include a 2 claim plot. But i felt more confortable with an oldschool Valar Morghulis instead, and it really saved my ass during one game. I felt playing valar confortable against swarm decks, since you do have several ways to get rid of dupes (mutiny, coldhands, breaking ties) before the valar
For the record : Round 1 : loss VS Kingdom of shadows (Deilan) Round 2 : Win VS Bara Kraken (Golo) Round 3 : Win VS Night's watch wars to come (Sadyear) Round 4 : Win VS Stark Rains (YopYop) Round 5 : Win VS Stark Crossin (Laplante) Round 6 : Loss VS Night's watch wars to come (Daniele) Round 7 : Win VS Greyjoy Prince (Arutho) Top 16 : Loss VS Night's King of summer (Argento, amazing game)
I felt lucky i didn't met any targ, especially targ burn during the tournament.
