After my 2nd place finish at Blackwater Bay, I decided to rock my HoD Gates at this years UK Nationals - now with a few games of actual practice rather than creating it on the eve of the event. After an extremely tiring day full of close-fought games, I beat Kristian's Lanni/Fealty in an epic final and succeeded Dave Bamford as the UK National Champion!
I made a few changes since Blackwater, including the 'madness' of dropping all three copies of The Roseroad - I was never short of money thanks to the plots and Fealty, so top decking (or the chance of missing a draw with Gates of Winterfell) a Roseroad was never something I wanted. These were replaced by third copies of King Robb's Host, Rattleshirt's Raiders and Riverrun Minstrel bringing me to a lovely 48 characters. Calling the Banners replaced A Noble Cause as it often provided me more income (with no reset) and the initiative could be key on certain rounds.
A full report (what I can remember at least) can be found in the latest episode of The Southron Bannermen (Facebook or Soundcloud) so I won't go into too much detail here. You can also check out the previous deck for an explanation of how it arose. I would like to thank all my opponents on the day, and my Thrones family as a whole for being a truly fantastic group of people. The amount of congratulatory messages and support I received during/after the tournament was awesome. Thanks to Liam Hall and Esdevium for the smooth running of the event too.
