I really liked the Lannister vs Stark short game.

Are there any short game decklists?

Re: Any deck lists quick games with a single Core Set
With one core I would just do Kingslayer. Smash two factions together and add 10 neutrals.

As Robert said, you could use the Kingslayer format (example decks are listed at the back of the Learn To Play booklet.

Or if you like the short game ("Introduction Mode"), no deck building is required anyway because you just take the 20 faction cards and add neutral and plots.

Ten neutrals? Three coalitions get 7 and one 8; none 10.

That's what I asked for. I want to play the quick games, so I'm asking about decklists of the neutral cards and plots in a 1v1 short game.

The Kingslayer rules don't refer to the starting decks. What it means is to choose all the cards from two factions, 10 or more neutrals of your choice, and 7 plots of your choice. These decks are a good starting experience if you want more variety than the starter decks

Making the decks smaller (like stark vs Lannister intro) doesn't really make games shorter since the game usually ends due to power total anyway and the deck size has nothing to do with how fast you get power.

If you feel the game is too long with full decks, just play to lower power (maybe 12) or just call the game as over after the 7th round.

Just take 20 cards from a faction, and put some neutrals you feel are fine. It's so easy I doubt anyone thought about preparing exact card lists.

Not that easy; there are 31 Neutral cards and I just thought if there are some experienced playthroughs perhaps for a balanced one.

Well if you look at those tutorial decks they actually use exactly the same set of straightforward neutrals for each. So unless you're playing melee (more than two player) just always use those same two base neutral sets and add the twenty faction cards from each of two factions to them, done.

If anything will need a bit more effort it's plot decks. You could try using the plot decks listed [geekurl=https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1462963/8-mono-faction-decks-2-or-3-core-sets]here[/geekurl].
