Malkavian Out of Turn Combat Deck
Anyway i've been thinking about the Malky combat deck and talking about it
with Rob Treasure and i think there is a better and simpler version, based on
protean aggravated damage.
4 Greger Anderssen
5 Madness Network
2 Direct Intervention
11 x Bum's Rush
4 x 3rd tradition: Progeny
3 x GtU [either that or Sacrificial Lamb or Graverobbing]
12 x Flesh of Marble
12 x Claws of the Dead
6 x Form of the Ghost
5 x Amaranth
5 x Ritual of the Bitter Rose
Anathema x 3
Malkavian Justicar x 2
Consanguineous Boon x 3
Archon x 2
2nd Tradition: Domain x 4
Maybe there ought to be a space for Ivory Bow in here, just one of them.
Possibly replacing one of the Archons. And if i build this deck in real space
i will have to replace most of the Flesh of Marbles with Leather jackets and
blood Tears cos i only have 4.I'm not sure about the Amaranth/Ritual combo
though, and that's the reason for this post. Can i use Amaranth to diablerise
a vampire that is going to torpor due to Rotschreck? We [James Coupe,
William Lee and I] talked about this on the IoW and were really unsure,
though our feeling was probably not -once strike combat ends has occurred,
you can't do anything else [so if we're right Catatonic fear at superior on
a vamp with no blood could not be followed by Amaranth, for example].
If not [ruling, LSJ?], the Amaranth cards would go out and be replaced by
+stealth action modifiers to cover the diablerie - also useful for voting
and equipping so you could use Forgotten Labyrinth.
