"Your Grace's royal brother was renowned for turning fallen foes into friends. Make me your man."
This is the deck I used to win a local tournament in the "Road to Storm's End" series held in Portland, Oregon. I was expecting a large amount of Stark Fealty and a fair amount of Martell, and I was already curious about Asha Greyjoy in Baratheon, so I put this deck together and discovered that it worked really well.
The Iron Mines were for targeted kill protection, in order to back up Ser Barristan Selmy, while the Lordsport Shipwrights were included to deal with Ghaston Grey. Maester Wendamyr synergizes well with Baratheon's power-centric approach. Theon Greyjoy provided a character immune to The First Snow of Winter alongside Ser Davos Seaworth, and the single Raiding Longship rounded out the curve with a location that could stick around after First Snow or Wildfire Assault.
Asha Greyjoy along with Melisandre were the stars of the show, with Melisandre's kneeling ability opening up routes for Asha to win unopposed challenges. Robert Baratheon also pairs very well with her, as Robert can Intimidate a potential defender of Asha's second challenge.
Noteworthy is the lack of Stannis Baratheon. This choice was made because of the matches I was expecting. Stark has ways to stand up their characters with Robb Stark and Jon Snow, and Stannis is very susceptible to targeted kill like Tears of Lys. I knew going in that I was going to win matches with power challenges and with targeted kill protection, and Stannis did not fit with that strategy.
If you are looking for something different out of Baratheon, give the Kraken a try!
