Here's the deck I used to turn around my poor regional luck and do much better than I expected at both Origins and GenCon. I call it "95% Idiot-Proof" because the decisions you make are usually pretty easy to get correct, and the deck has so many power cards and answers that even when you make a mistake, oftentimes you still win easily.
In 21 games total across the two conventions I only played three opponents who weren't playing either Lannister or Banner of the Lion - Nathan's Stark Fealty in the Origins finals, Greyjoy Fealty in round seven of the GenCon Swiss, and my poor Bara Fealty opponent in the t8 at GenCon, who go the worst draw in history (set up two characters, had no other characters to play after nine cards).
All the combos in the deck are simple. You play a better character than your opponent almost every single turn - in fact, of my five losses in those 21 games, three came from not seeing any of the plethora of big characters on turns two and three. Drop big guys, kill people with events, cancel events with Bran and abilities with Treachery. It's that straightforward. Very easy to board-wipe via a First Snow, Ambushed character, and then a Marched the next turn, too.
The most common deck I played against was Martell/Lion, and this deck has a lot of easy answers to Nymeria. Get her off the board and it's pretty much game over for them. Rattleshirt's Raiders are a 3-of partly for that matchup, and partly because I think every single tournament deck right now should be running 3x Milk. Raiders will be even better now that Craven is joining the environment. I was only 2-2 against Lanni/Dragon, so you can call that a weakness, but one of the losses was to getting both my Mountain and my Tyrion hit by his Tickler - if Lanni/Dragon does that consistently, I suppose it's a bad matchup for me!
Anyway, thanks to all my opponents for the games, especially my incredible game against Chris in the GenCon t4 which should be posted at some point. I'm looking forward to not having to play decks to win events so I can go back to Greyjoy/Stag.
