Here is the 'choke' list I used in 'Battle for the Wall 17' for getting the 2nd Swiss position. It has suffered a lot of changes from the last version I played for winning Dorne as I felt Valar made the typical aggresive control of the deck (in terms of board) useless in some cases (stalling decks) or not efective ( a lot of saves in the meta) so I wanted to reach a middle-point building where I could change the win condition depending on the matchup or even adapt the way of playing during the match if the initial plan you had becomes unachievable for some reason.
So, specially inspired by Qhorin renown, I tried to give the deck a 'rush' approach without losing too much in the aggresive side, which of course is something unavoidable, being Qhorin the main representation of this plan. This way, the first thing I did was to transform PttS in suprising Wall appearances where my Rangers and Wildlings will hide if they can't beat the opponents in the cold battleground, and to include 1 more 5-gold plot to be able to pay Qhorin & Varys in the same game if necessary leading me to use 2 Winter Festival to be coherent with the new strategy. And of course, if you play the Wall, you have to play 3x Craven.
On the other hand The plotline has higher reserve and economy than it had before so I decided I could run only Sam as a reserve bonus, taking away its copies and the "God's eye" I used to run in my lists. The plotline also counts with The Long Winter absence for obvious (rush) reasons.
The result was not bad, 7-1 in the Swiss getting the 2nd place, being my only defeat against Alex Trigonakis and his Lanni-Rains Swiss champion, where I lost due to a huge HUGE misscount in a match I think I had totally under control. Truth to be told, I was very lucky to not be pairing against any heavy summer deck. In Top 32 I lost against the nemesis of the deck, Bara-kneeling-fealty, against Wesker, a great friend and player from Spanish meta who played a very good match even when he started with a weak setup.
As always, thanks to all of my opponents and people who made possible this event, specially to all the Battle for the Wall Staff!! Next stop: ZGZ with the NW box!!!
