This is a pretty standard Baratheon Fealty deck. The only card that’s in this and not on the standard decklist is Seal of the Hand. I put it in because every deck seems to have at least one copy of Filthy Accusations, Baratheon is big right now, and it can help negate the negative effects of my own Stannis Baratheon. It’s responsible for at least one of my wins, so I’m considering removing Bodyguard and putting an extra copy in.
I had skilled opponents throughout the day, and the deck performed admirably, but two matches stand out as particularly difficult.
First was my third round matchup against Hugo, who was playing a Grayjoy/Baratheon deck. I had a weak setup, and he made me fight for every inch, burning my locations, killing my characters, and kneeling my guys out. I forget how I pulled it off, but somehow I managed to catch up during the course of the game. By the end it was one of the closest games I’ve ever played. On the final turn we both had 13 power, he had 2 characters (1 w/ stealth) standing, I had 3, and I think I won it by 1. If he had one more character standing, or his other character had stealth, he would have won.
The other was my final round pairing against Nicholas. He was playing an undefeated Stark/Grayjoy deck that used Sneak Attacks, Winter Is Coming, Grey Wind’s intimidate, and stealth to clear the field. He had me on the ropes the entire game, and I could never get my economy off the ground, but I think the critical moment was when I did an challenge in the midst of a Stannis/Melisandre board lockdown and managed to discard his Robb Stark. If he’d been able to play him it probably would have been the final nail in my coffin.
I had a blast playing in the tournament, and I’m excited to see how the landscape will change as the Chapter Packs are released. I think FFG has a real winner here.
tldr; Kneel Baratheon is ridiculous and no fun to play against.
