The Ventrue Lawfirm is a deck that evolved from its primitive version with ‘midcaps’ of groups 1-2 (Sir Walter, Emerson, Timothy, etc …) to other variants such as Arika and company or group version 4-5 ( with Lodin, Victor P, Victor D, etc …).
The basic operation of the deck has three phases:
· First abuse the extra influence that gives us the Government, Enchant and Scouting (usually accompanied by zilla’s and villeins)
· Second build up your strategy taking out vampires with votes to push the multi-action / bleed policies of the final phase.ed de la fase final.
· Third, end up sweeping whoever is at the table repeating to the bleed / politca, freak drive, politics / bleed taste.
The deck is based on a large number of strong cards:
Govern the unaligned, Enchant Kindred, Scouting Mission.
Parity Shift, KRC, Awe, Bewitching Oration, Voter Captivation.
Deflection, Second Tradition, Murmur of the False Will.
Some based on the clan: Ventrue HQ and Yiaros Island.
And finally they move between Majesty, Obedience and the prevention of strength.
The best way to win a deck of this style is to take advantage of the start of the game wisely, trying to block the initial actions of gaining blood in an uncontrolled area. If the Ventrue manages to build up it’s strategy it will be difficult to resist his bleed or beat him in votes.
