Deck of the Month: December 2010: Obey Redux

This month's deck is the tournament winning deck "Obey Redux" played by Mike Zajac. This month it was rather hard to decide for a deck of the month, since December is usually a month with rather few tournaments. I decided for the Malkavian Old School Bleed & Vote deck as shown below, not because it's an innovate or overly clever design, but because it shows that you can still use your old card collection (pre-1996) to win a VtES tournament. With the exception of Gran Madre di Dio, Italy all cards are from the Sabbat or earlier expansion.

Deck Name: Obey Redux
An Anarch Manifesto
San Jose, California
December 20, 2010
14 players
2R + F

Vote and bleed down prey, and reassign pool via Parity Shifts to keep others from being ousted; bounce with Deflections and reduce combat with Obedience and Read Intentions; slow to start up and weak against Grapples and heavy combat, but tends to keep things interesting, as passing votes is rarely a problem.
