Hereby the deck I build to take to the Leiden (the Netherlands) regional. I'm a Targ loyalist so it was nice to have my spot in the sun with the recent additions.
The deck plays pretty slow. Almost every game it looks like I'm off to a very bad start but that is just the way the deck works. I was unsure which plot to take as a 7th spot but Richard Walker pointed me on a second Counting Coppers. This brought me to 4x 2 gold plots, but it works out great.
I'm really bad at remembering all my games so here's a summary:
Round 1 vs Egbert Targ Fealty: Egbert was ahead at the start but that is just how my deck plays. He played fairly aggressive so I could punish that later on in the game. He made 2 mistake which cost him his board. I put Crown of gold on his Khal Drogo that also had a bodyguard and instead of killing him off for claim during my 2 military challenges he decided to kill 2 different characters. Next turn came Blood of the Dragon so the Khal went down instantly. I was also able to burn his Daeny afterwards during the Blood of the Dragon turn with Plaza of Punishment + a Dragon is no Slave. 1-0
Round 2 vs Jamie Bamfield (Bambi) Night Watch Crossing: Jamie brought a fun NW wildlings deck because he already won another regionals. He started of strong but I could burn through his Jon Snow pretty quickly. Don't remember much more about this game, always to nervous when playing Bambi. 2-0
Round 3 vs Thijs Meeuwsen Tyrel Lion:
Thijs opened up strong. Luckily I could burn his Margaery. I suspected him to play Ghost of Harrenhall so I played Blood of the Dragon killing a reducer that died, came back and died again. So no more tinder Margaery. After that it was a bit easier for me. In my Blood of the Dragon turn he made a few mistakes which allowed me to take the win. Thijs is a great guy, always a blast playing him.
Round 4 vs Franke Roders Targ Fealty: This was a very close match. Franke is an amazing player but luckily for me not quite as experienced with Targ as me. He still played great though. He opened Varys Riddle vs my counting coppers so he had a great start. After 2 turns we both had a 4 gold Astapor so challenges were sparse. His deck played more high curve with Great Hall and even Varys. Game was exciting till the end but I managed to get the win. 4-0 King of Swiss :)
Quarter finals vs Chris Meeuwsen Stark Fealty: The other halve of the Meeuwsen brothers and a Stark loyalist. We both started strong. He had Winterfell but I had a 4 gold Astapor. The game was very exciting and nail biting for me because he was playing very well and I was kinda worried about the curse of King of Swiss. He saw Ice 3 times and had a pretty aggressive deck with loads of claim and fun tricks. He didn't see his Frozen Solid though which was good for me. Managed to win out in the end.
Semi finals vs Sebastiaan Knetch Greyjoy Crossing: This was a deck I was afraid of. Greyjoy has great location control and Crossing can be too quick for my deck. His setup was duped Victarion + Lordsport Shipright. I don't really remember my setup. I did play Blood of the Dragon on turn 1 and turned Victarion into a very dead king. I had Viserys in hand to play if he did have a Risen from the Sea, but he wasn't needed. This left him with no board before his marshalling. He couldn't really recover and had some bad luck.
Finals vs Franke again: Frankes setup was Khal Drogo + Viserys. Mine was both plazas + Slavers Bay Port. I opened with Valar Morghulis and the rest of the game was really one sided. Franke couldn't recover and my double Counting coppers gave me everything I needed. I closed the game with still 3 dracarys in hand. Not a very exciting finals but it was very nice to win my first regional after getting to semi finals or finals in all but one of my other tournaments.
Thanks for the great organization and fun times and to the amazingly friendly Dutch players. I have no home meta because no one plays ind my region so I only play online so thanks for everyone on Theironthrone for helping me test the deck. And thanks to Richard again for the 7th plot!
