One day one deck nº10: Enkidu Superstar

Enkidu Superstar’s deck is a deck of combat visits that with a bit of luck can decapitate the entire table in a few turns.

This deck is surely the one that I have played the most times until today, because although it is not a deck of the “best” that can be played at a competitive level, I have a lot of fun. I have a phrase for this deck: “Enkidu’s deck works very well until something goes wrong.”

The fundamental strategy of the deck is to visit everyone, usually your first predator and then as appropriate. Enkidu is a capacity 11 vampire with a built-in visit and +2 strength. For this deck, the issue of teams and retainers doesn’t matter to us.

If you are going to play the deck, you have to keep in mind that your game depends above all on Enkidu (or Matasuntha) in its absence. Everyone is going to want to stop you so it is important that you are able to show who is in charge at the table. An entombment or a sensory deprivation is usually the reason for the end of the game.

The combat of this monster is both simple and effective: it’s about hitting with Enkidu’s super hand. “Nothing before range, no maneuver, hand of 3, additional 3, psyche! And repeat until you kill.

In addition to the Enkidu visit, the deck has many visits and multiactions so we can almost certainly get where we set out. I recommend getting a little distracted during the beginning of the game, we must try to make others see us as a minor threat (not usually easy) to deposit their pool in the vampires.

If you play against this deck, there is a weak point that you should know, the strength to inferior of enkidu makes it only capable of multiactioning in successful actions since it uses Freak Drive, Forced March and Instantaneous Transformation. If you stop a visit it will be very difficult to return that same turn.
