Memorable Quotes (Part 120)

"The most overwhelming strategic problem of the Rush deck is that killing vampires does not directly work towards your goal of ousting your prey. -- Peter Bakija (notorious combat deck player)
Reference: The Rush Combat Deck (ca. 1995)

But it's soooo much fun :o).

That's so true. The bigger problem is maybe, that your grandprey doesn't face much if any pressure and build up quite easily if you harrass your prey intensively.
