Gelsenkirchen VtES League 2010: April 7th

Here are the decks of the Gelsenkirchen VtES League 2010 from the meeting on April 7th (prey is from left to right, from top to bottom):

Left: Didi fielded his Tremere / Tremere antitribu Big Cap Toolbox deck. Slow to build up, hard to oust in the long run!
Right: Kinner played his well-known Anarch Presence Bleed deck, with no pressure early on, he was becoming a force of nature in the game.

Left: Martin's Ventrue/Brujah Royalty was pressured hard from the start, although he managed to get two Progenies out, he hardly had a chance against the Presence Weenies.
Right: Another player without a predator early on, was Zille with his Ravnos bleed deck.

Left: Although Ralf had a good start with his Tzimisce/Toreador antitribu War Ghoul deck, being able to bleed Didi a couple of times, he overextended by playing three vampires and two War Ghouls, and was ousted after Zille played a Week of Nightmares for his Ravnos.

Result: The first one to go was Ralf, after the Ravnos overran his defenses with the Week of Nightmares. Soon after Martin had to succumb to the bleed power of Kinner's horde of Anarch vampires. Since Zille had influenced out 4 rather big Ravnos vampires, and had little pool gain, he also was ousted more or less quickly by the Anarchs. In the heads-up game it was the Anarchs' raw attack power against the well-laid defenses (Carlton and Ponticulus) of Didi's deck. Eventually the game timed out -- with Kinner emerging as victor with 2.5 VPs.
