Deck of the Month: September 2011: Assamite Dementia

This month's deck is the tournament winning deck "Assamite Dementia" played by Simone Longobardi. Although it was "only" a ten-player-tournament he won, I quite like the fusion of the strengths of an Assamite bleed with the advantages of the Malkavian antitribu/Dementation (i.e. Kindred Spirits, Touch of Clarity), and Sybil's Tongue. Beside this deck other notable decks (e.g. candidates for the Deck of the Month) were the Assamite Bleed & Bloat deck by Jay Kristoff and the Una-style Gerald Windham Freakshow deck by Stewart MacLeod.

Isn't it a little to late to choose the Deck of the Month for September 2010?

Err, maybe. But technically I always choose the deck after the month has ended. ;)

Ya, but a whole year after?
