Jon Morris also qualified.

Haliburton Fairfax = Corey Brindley

He had a fake name entered into the Archon due to superstition. He
believes that when the name "Brindley" is entered, that person will be
assigned to go 1st, 2nd and 3rd during the preliminary rounds.

Thank you for pimping my feed, Lasombra. I'm still refining my

Oh, my!!! Jay Kristoff (I see by looking at the blog) WON the
tournament! With a quote-LEGACY-OF-PANDER-unquote deck!?! Wow!

I *MUST* see the tournament-winning deck. I've been down on
this card since it got modified a few years ago to end the
stacking of them. Not that I had a big problem with ending
the stacking of LoPs (granted, backstory-wise, that WAS strange
and it made for decks that either ran away with game or died
horribly, which are not missed) but I've always that the
card that resulted from just removing the ability to stack
was totally ass. If I was wrong, I owe LSJ an apology for
the times I've moaned about that.

And, assuming the card really is central to a solid deck,
props to Jay for thinking up how to use it to good effect.

Good to see a few 2+ caps in here for rescuing purposes.

Great card choices. Did you get to use any of these to good effect? I
presume the Peace of Khetamon was to use on your *own* Pander to allow
for a pseudo-rescue.

Excellently done Jay!

Congratulations on the repeat win.

If Ankur will post the number of players in attendance, the deck can
join all of your others in the Tournament Winning Deck Archive.

They are for recuing and for crypt
variety. I wanted 12 unique vamps.
I usually brought all of them into play.

I had hoped to draw Kamakli early. I did so in two
rounds. The first of which I played it on turn two after
I brought up two vamps on turn one. No one else had
any minions. That seems like the optimal situation.
In the final round I had it in my opening hand and tried
to play it on turn 1. I was going fourth, I thought it would
be good to wipe away the blood that the 3 previous meths
had transfered. Alas, my predator Suddened it.

Kingston Penitentiary is an on-going experiment. I wanted
a Pander Hunting Ground. If other players pay me a pool to
use it, I figured that was like a free vamp in this deck. Not
many players bit. Even when they did, it was to keep their
vamp from having to hunt. I think that I prefer my old friend
Club Zombie.

Police Department is awesome. I like to use it in non-combative
decks, where the vamps have a chance of lasting through
the first round. People tend to laugh when I put it in play, but
that doesn't slow me down. At the qualifier in each game in which
I had P.D. in play, I tapped it at least once. Police Department is
the best card that White Wolf has yet to re-print.

Finding the Path was another experiment. It's pretty good, but
one drawback is that I need to anger a majority of the other
players at the table. Oh well, I guess that meek table
posture is out of the question for this deck.

>I presume the Peace of Khetamon was to use on your *own* Pander

Yes, that's the idea. If my deck is running properly, my pool is less
important than the blood on the vampires. Plus, Mitchell the Head-
hunter's text says that it costs an extra blood to rescue him from
torpor. Mitchell loves P.o.K!

Thanks for your interest.

Jay
