Here's the deck I've used today in the Ludus Belli regional in Madrid. Finally, 15 players showed up (these small tournaments are declining in Madrid, unfortunately...).
So, basically, I've been playing Stark in every tournament I've attended since 2013. I've been loyal to the house in the good and the bad times, and I have to admit, the latest months haven't been very good to the Wolves, in terms of competitiveness. However, Flea Bottom is a very powerful card (one could say it's even broken, I'm not sure) and it's given Stark an important edge that they were missing: having the ability to repopulate the board so easily via Summer is very powerful. But that's not the only trick. There are many other uses, and the Stark 3-costers are quite decent in this aspect.
This is the evolution of the deck I've been playing for more than one year now. The original deck was "Mother Queen in the North" and it's the one I used to make top 4 in Spanish Nats 2016, plus some other nice achievements. It's basically a Stark deck that revolves around Catelyn Stark. However, this latest iteration tries not to depend so much on her, since nowadays keeping important characters on the board for too long is getting harder and harder, with all the killing and discarding present in the meta.
The deck has a basic principle of being super-defensive: it tries to negate the hazards that your opponent might throw at you, and at the same time it packs some ways of gaining passive power with cards like Catelyn Stark, Sansa Stark (Core), Winter Festival or The Iron Throne. When playing this deck, you usually only attack in power challenges, or intrigue if it's easy and/or it's gonna be an unoposed. You rarely do military, unless you have both Jon Snow (WotN) and Robb Stark (Core) and can stand your entire table. I've won games with this deck in which I've barely initiated a single challenge.
Marriage Pact is also a card that works wonders in this deck. I used to play it x3, but I finally cut one copy in favour of other cards. It was really useful today in round 3 vs Greyjoy, and generally speaking it fits the mechanic of the deck very well. However, the real novelty of the deck, and what makes it shine is Flea Bottom. During the games today, it was awesome how the deck could recover from my opponent's Valar Morghulis.
As always, any questions or suggestions are welcome. Thank you for reading!
