Matthew Morgan's Tournament Winning Deck

Deck Name: Salmon Fishstick
Created by: Matt Morgan, based on Martin Major's deck
Description: It's rush combat with a strong master module. Master cards are the best in the game. I'd always rather have too many than too few. The name is because the final was won 2-1-1-1 and Fish and Stick lead the way while Nana stayed hidden in my crypt. Fish is only in the deck to make it count as a Guruhi deck for TWDA purposes.

Crypt [12 vampires, average capacity: 4.66667]
4x Nana Buruku ANI POT PRE 8 Guruhi:4
1x Fish ANI POT pre 5 Guruhi:4
1x Beetleman ANI obf 4 Nosferatu:4
1x Bobby Lemon ANI pro 4 Gangrel:3
1x Dolie abo ani 3 Akunanse:4
1x Stick ANI 3 Nosferatu antitribu:4
1x Mouse ani 2 Nosferatu:3
1x Zip ani 2 Ravnos:3
1x Lisa Noble ani 1 Caitiff:3

/* One might wonder why only 4 Nana when she's the star? The answer is that it's way better to have no Nana than all Nana. This deck needs a bunch of minion actions to succeed */

Library [76 cards]
Master [24]
2x Animalism
1x Archon Investigation
9x Ashur Tablets
2x Blood Doll
1x Fame
1x Giant's Blood
1x Mbare Market, Harare
1x Pentex(TM) Subversion
1x Powerbase: Luanda
1x Powerbase: Montreal
1x Rack, The
2x Villein
1x Wider View

/* I really liked having AI here in the final, though I wound up not playing it. Mbare Market probably isn't worth the slot. Should be a 2nd Fame, I think. Otherwise the masters worked out very well. */

Action [12]
10x Deep Song
1x Entrancement
1x Well-Marked

Equipment [1]
1x Ivory Bow

/* The Entrancement and Well-Marked didn't really earn their keep at any point, though Well-Marked is typically a free action at least. I play fewer Deep Songs than Martin's version because I'm not trying to rush with every minion with every action. I bleed for 1 a little or stay up. I want my prey to go forward. I don't want to simply squish him. Coming out of the gate too fast is a mistake. */

Event [1]
1x Dragonbound

Reaction [6]
2x Cats' Guidance
1x Delaying Tactics
1x On the Qui Vive
2x Sense the Savage Way

/* Very few reactions. Sense the Savage Way should probably go since only Nana can play them. I had multiple situations where I would have liked to block with somebody else but couldn't because of the restriction on that card. Getting to 2 intercept is nice, but it isn't worth the cost. */

Combat [32]
11x Aid from Bats
1x Canine Horde
13x Carrion Crows
3x Target Vitals
4x Taste of Vitae

/* Very consistent. Not a lot can survive repeated hits from this. Of course it's not fun to run into other ANI decks, but them's the breaks. */
