Deck of the Month: March 2009: Guillaume Powerbleed

This month's deck is the tournament winning deck "Guillaume Powerbleed" played by Tomasz Pietkiewicz. This month's competition was tough with Erik Torstensen's Malkavian Petra Resonance deck and Will Kristoff's Four Skills of Fury deck.

As Tomasz has noted this deck is a slight variation of Erik Torstensen's version. The deck is basically a powerbleed deck, whose minions can bleed for 6 pool damage per turn ("Govern the Unaligned" plus "Conditioning"). For lunging the deck can build the "perfect" hand with the help "Guillaume Giovanni's" special ability and a number of "Storage Annexes".

Make your Baron Windham deck a TWD, and I'll post it immediately as Deck of the Month April!

I'll try ;o).

But why didn't you choose one of the other two decks? I just don't care for another powerbleed deck, as everybody knows about the might of Dominate. The other two decks are much more genuine and stuffed with kind of new ideas, you know. That's what makes a deck a deck of the month in my book (on the other hand this blog is YOUR book of course :o) ).
