Description: Okay so I'm in a deck building phase. Sue me... Now, I'm
not used to playing with fat vamps so I apologize in advance if this
looks incredibly off. I want to keep at 80 cards, though I think I make
use of every discipline fairly well. Granted could have focused more on
the bleed aspect but Rosa Martinez and Count Germaine come with
additional bleed attached. Lots of untapping with a touch of block
denial. The ability to rush couples with either light bounce or
intercept should keep prey at bay. Thoughts?

OK, here they come. I don't have time right now to make those thoughts
come out politely - please excuse the somewhat brusque tone.

Your crypt is too fat without having pool recursion actions. You'll be
lucky to run on 2 minions with this configuration. Lighten up, or
include a bunch of Enchant Kindred to use at PRE.

I don't like Venere Carboni - no for/FOR at 8 cap and an special you
don't want to be using. Would Hrothulf be better (especially with a
built-on conditional rush)? You lose AUS CEL, but gain FOR CEL, which
seem more important in your deck.

> 3 Sonja Blue 5 CEL dom FOR pot PRE Ventrue:4
> 4 Diamond Thunderbolt

Every time you play her, you'll lose Sonja Blue. 4 Thunderbolts wont
be enough, from what I've seen.

> 1 Parthenon, The
Drop it - with only 12 Masters, it's not worth the slot, even if you're
hoping to use it as a diversion with Thunderbolts. Heidelburg Castle
would be better for the ability to move guns.

> 1 Celerity
I don't really like it, but I understand that it's there for +1 stealth
with Forced March. Consider dropping it anyway, as only 3 crypt cards
(one of which is duplicated) lack CEL.

> Equipment: 5 cards
> 5 Desert Eagle

Despite having a little bit of sneak/block avoidance, this is a weak
spot. Add Vast Wealth and Concealed Weapons to be sure that you'll get
the guns in play - without em, you're neutered.

> 4 Indominability

I like Hidden Strength better if you're looking for damage mitigation,
and Psyche better if you're after the standalone press. As you have
some Master slots available, Mob Connections might even be useful
(shudder). Psyche would be even better, though.

6 Flurry of Action
7 Forced March
3 Crocodile's Tongue
2 Approximation of Loyalty

I hope you're not running into even modest intercept, as you're entire
untap scheme is dependent on successful actions and you're not going to
be hugely successful in getting those actions complete.

Hope that helps a bit
