Claims, death and orange cards! I've been trying different Knights of the Hollow Hill lists during the last weeks, and I finally decided to take this one to Feast For Crows. I had a bunch of really fun games and the deck behaved quite smoothly, even though I guess it could gain consistency with some changes. Happy to get feedback!
The main point of the deck is to maximize claim benefit, either with high claim plots such as You Win Or You Die or Desperate Attack, or with claim denier cards Burning on the Sand and Vengeance for Elia. Also running a bunch of killable characters helps in case claim cannot be prevented.
Without going into round-by-round detail, these were the key factors that I believe contributed most to the victory:
Opening with Desperate Attack: the mere sense of bluff for a Vengeance for Elia made the 1st rounds go a lot to my side, with a couple of succesful 3-claim military challenges that basically destroyed my opponent's setups without having to use either Varys (Core) or Valar Morghulis.
Running You Win Or You Die into Siege Preparations: simple and effective, I got to see a lot of cards and this totally countered Cersei Lannister (DitD) in the round against Banner of the Kraken. Of course the fact that my opponent didn't see his bowels in the whole was a big help :D
Political Disaster: Easily the most important plot (and card) in the whole deck. A must-have against any shadow decks, Greyjoys or builders, among others.
I hope you enjoy the list if you try it, there are lots of tricks and fun sequences! My initial lists also ran Sunspear or more control cards like The Iron Throne (LMHR) but I finally added 1x Ghaston Grey and 1x Secret Pact to deny Renown as much as possible, which along with passive power are the worst enemies of this deck. Notably, I was bashed by a Fealty and I was lucky enough to dodge the other Tyrells in the top8, which I think were a worse matchup due to their insane card draw.
See you all around! Cheers
