One day one deck nº9: Goratrix blocker

Today I will tell you about the Goratrix block deck.

If by chance you are sitting playing a pachanga and curiosity has brought you here to see Goratrix in front or behind you … take a breath and ask for something to drink, that the thing is going long.

This deck is characterized by being sickly solid once it has passed the initial phase of the game. Goratrix’s special ability (draw 2R of blood per strike) means that this deck can dispense with most combat cards and can continue to pay the cards with blood cost (especially Rego Motus and Deflection).

The habitual companion of Goratrix “the weary one” is usually Omaya, “the heavy one”. Omaya has the AUSpex and the ANImalism that we will use to block to infinity and one of combat damage is prevented.

The usual thing in this deck is to play to wear the rest of the table intercepting everything that pool / blood / power. The intercept crads of the deck is the best in the game (Sense the savage way, Eyes of Argus, Read the winds, The Mole, etc …). You can expect at least 30-40 wakes in the deck.

The other key cards of the deck are quite evident (Govern, Conditioning, Deflection, Rego Motus …), accompanied by Enkil Cog, Army of Rats, Maggic of the Smith to equip with the classic Ruins of Ceoris that Goratrix likes so much , Guardian Angels and some Carrion – Canine Horde. Smiling Jack to fix the day.

A strategy that often accompanies this deck is anarchism, which gives us access to the Constant Revolution, the Mole and the deadly Anarch Revolt.
