Name of tournament: Praxis Seizure: Québec 2005
Location: Québec, Canada
Date: April 3, 2005
Number of players: 27
Number of rounds: 3 + F

Rémy Auclair was back this year to organize the 2005 edition of the Praxis
Seizure: Québec tournament (6 years running!). Rémy is also back in the
Prince seat since Daniel Bouchard, who has been our very good local Prince
for over a year, has stepped down for personal reasons.

27 players gathered in Québec to battle it out, a number not often seen in
Québec tournaments. In the end, Michel-Étienne "MiF" Fortin won the
tournament with a !Tremere Nephandus deck.

Here are the final results:

Here is MiF's winning deck:


Deck Name: Mage Power
Created By: MiF (Michel-Etienne Fortin)
Description: Weenie ally swarm using one of the most versatile ally in the
game. Put out a couple vamps, recruit like crazy and start the onslaught.
Once the recruiting is done, the vamps are here mostly to hunt and bloat
with the blood dolls or bounce bleeds and block unharmful vampires. The
rest is all done by the nephandi and Ossian (who can be a real beast with
Memories + Trap). Since you only have to spend about 8-10 pools for vamps,
you can afford to recruit about 4 or 5 allies and still have a decent pool
cushion. The deck fears intercept and the creepshow is often not enough,
but you can bait them out if you have multiple nephandus in your hand and
try to slip one by. Heavy combat is bad as well, which the Quebec metagame
is full of, but the Memories help a lot here, hence the high number of
them in the deck; just remember that Carrion Crows are your worst enemy
(about 1 deck out of 3 played those during the tournament, so I'm
surprised I managed to do that well).

well thank you. it was also a lot of fun to play. :)

i had some very tense and close (and enjoyable as well) games with this
deck.

i don't know wether or not it proves that allies are getting quite
viable, but i'll definitely try to come up with more decks like this
one (i have an idea involving louhi and harzomatuili that i'm toying
with).

i'm still looking for ways to improve the deck, or new concepts as
well. comments and suggestions are always welcomed. :)
