So my memory is super bad, and it was a crazy week with copious amounts of alcohol. I'll recount what I can remember.
The idea of the deck is to apply massive amounts of pressure. FSoW to punish bad setups and low cost chars, followed by famine and winds combined with Trial by combat to kill everything that remains. Theres some tricks like Things I do and Hear Me Roar to get a lot more impact out of those two claim plots, by either bouncing something back for juicer claim, or bouncing something in to get that claim.
Everyone I played was a great player and some really tough competition. There are no freebies at worlds, that's for sure.
Round 1 Win -- Lucas Sydlaske, Bara Watch
Was able to get an early lead, narrow board down with FSoW, and apply pressure and choke to keep the board from growing back. I was able to see what I needed before Lucas, and close any chance he had of coming back into it.
Round 2 Win -- Brad Eire, Stark Fealty(?)
I honestly can't remember if I played Brad round 2 or later, or if he was Fealty or maybe Crossing, but I think Fealty. I do recall this was a close match. Brad had gotten up to 13 or 14 power, and was coming in for a power challenge with the Blackfish and Eddard. I was able to play 'Things I Do' to pop the blackfish back, setting him back 6 power, and opening the door for me to steal it away.
Round 3 Win -- Steven Cantrell, Targ Crossing
Another tough match. They were all tough. When Steven crowned a brothel madame, I caught wind that he was looking to put some military pressure on and march. I was able to play around it by going on defense and avoiding the drac.
Round 4 Win -- Norwegian Nationals (forgot name), Stark Fealty
Name might have been Ray? I was able to get the mountain out early, and pillaged Ed to take out, I think, Rob. That was a huge hit, that was shortly followed by a claim 2 trial by combat which saw Fat Cat with a body card chosen for claim which I Trechery'd. I felt dirty after this one.
Round 5 Win -- ????
I honestly can't remember. Not that it was forgetful, there was just so much going on. I could be confusing which round some of the earlier matches happened too. I won, I know that much for sure.
Round 6 Win -- Steven Simoni, NW Crossing
This deck probably would have been a problem. I was lucky enough to get out in front of it with a FSoW. Pressure to keep the board small. Played around Arry and Dolorous Edd so I wasn't giving up challenges, keeping Edd locked in hand until I could Int him out.
Round 7 Loss -- Tupac Castro, Bara Summer
Mel, Rhollers, stinking drunk. I saw Cersie early and thought I'd be able to get some sweet sweet Trials off, but she ended up not being able to do much. I just couldn't get any cards to change the pressure that was coming my way, and was on the receiving end of having a clear board.
Round 8 Loss -- Joe Mirando, Lanni Wolf
This was a pretty fun one. We both saw Tywin early which kind of keep things level. Joe got Bran out early, and when I tried to FSoW him away so I could do my thing unimpeded, he found the dupe. Joe got in some clutch nightmares and treachery's that kept me on the back foot until I just couldn't recover.
Top 16 -- Giovanni, Targ Fealty Giovanni is a great player (like everyone else I played). I setup with Ilyn and thought I'd be in good shape, but Giovanni had the milk, and another one in reserve for Tywin (I think it was). This was a total blowout, I couldn't get anything going and Giovanni kept widening the gap until it was clear I had no chance.
I know I'm forgetting details and important bits. It was a great couple days of thrones filled with a lot of great people. Looking forward to returning next year.
