One day one deck nº11: Nosferatu Royale

This deck is based on Nosferatu princes and justicares (which are cheap in terms of capacity). The classic version of the deck plays with groups 1 and 2 (Nikolaus, Calebros, Selma, Sheldon and even Murat) although the version of groups 2-3 can also be seen by the tables (how good is Cock Robin!).

This deck follows a somewhat particular dynamic due to its peculiarities. This is a deck based on traditions and policies. The strong point is obfuscation, which allows you to pass over most intercept decks without disheveled. As a main weakness it is quite blind to bleed (it only has second traditions) and none of its disciplines can deflect. Of course we could add intercept of animalism, but the deck is not about that. Another problem is that we have to pass the voting only with the votes of our vampires (we can help ourselves with the animal magnetism and the legendary vampire for that).

In general we will be interested in taking out many vampires (and surviving on the road!). Nikolaus’s special ability comes to us luxury and that is why the first one should be taken out. Then we can use the fourth tradition to accelerate that. If we are doing well, we may be able to play parity to our prey in order to continue influencing. Fifth tradition to fill us. For everything else, KRCard.

With regard to combat, there are decks that play with a lot of POT and / or ANI and others that prefer to forget that to specialize in their own. (If we are not going to play combat, we can play third traditions to block possible visits that we want to make).
