Deck of the Month: December 2008: Nocturns Twins

In December the list of decks to choose from was a little bit shorter because of the holiday season. The most interesting deck was the Nocturn Shadow Twin deck by Carlos Eduardo Ganso. Not that the deck list is so variable and innovative, but you have to have the chutzpah to enter a tournament with this kind of deck, and the skill to win with it. Note the lack of any Dominate bleed actions or modifiers, pure concentration on the "Nocturn" ally and the "Shadow Twin" action.

Thanks Mr. Anonymous!

This deck 1st idea using Fame but at 2nd version I use Society of Leopold make it more funny. To Tournament I opt to use Fame with this configuration posted.

The strategy is simple. Call Nocturn and untap. Nocturn perform Shadow Twin. Vampire perform Shadow Twin or recuse a Famed vampire from torpor.

Ever have in hand 1 intercept (Eye of the Night or Darksight) with Unmasking in play or Deflection and 1 or 2 On the Qui Vive, to bleed.

No block any action unless the acting minion can be sent to torpor.

The minions have low capacity causing low pool using.

A portion of luck is essential.
