Wiz-Wars blows!  lol   Christian is NPE in Wiz-Wars!  But, Christian will always be Lord Commander of _________!  (inside joke)

Excellent and honest report.  Well done and congrats!  Glad you were able to go but disappointed that I didn't get to receive the flesh price!

 Congrats… way to represent Lanni! And yes, leading everyone on the dance floor during the afterparty was EPIC! Haha. CaliCon was awesome!

Congrats and great report! If you're not intending on taking this deck to Worlds, could you be convinced to post the list? I'm quite curious about Winter Lannister.

I'd love to but I promised John Bruno that I wouldn't. I'm a man of my word.

Great Tourney Report!

I just have to say that I was absolutely floored by this deck; it was a real reminder to me of the importance of high claim in control, and with the freaking complexity of the challenge math (at least in our game), I have no doubts that you'll be adapting to naval challenges with no problems.  Way to show everyone that Lannisters still have legs.

All Hail the Lord Commander!

 It was great playing against Christian.  This was my first time in top 8 (came in as 8th) but I really enjoyed how casual and fun our game was even when he started steamrolling me.  It think my mistake with my Winter Greyjoy WAS trying to go for winter.  I saw he took a Carrion Bird and that telegraphed his plan.  I then spent 7 gold putting out White Raven + 2 Wintertime Marauders.  I really should not have bet it all and instead bring out the lower cost Greyjoys I had in hand.  Next time I will learn to play a bit more patiently.

 It was great playing against you too Greg. Actually I had a ton of fun playing against everyone at Calicon. Not a single negative experience.

Once more, well done Christian! Couldn't ask for a more conclusive and in-control set of victories. I like most of the GoT world was pretty close-minded in my belief regarding Martell dominance. It is possible that you created a deck with more universal counters/strategies regardless of opponent. It was fun to watch you carve your way through such a talented group of Thrones players. I wish you were taking the show to World's, but if you're content with a CaliCon win this year, well I'm happy you made it up. And I hope you do show off that Lord Commander House Card! Great tournament report.

 Thanks Syd it was an awesome event. I wish I could make it to Worlds but I can't afford to go this year. Maybe next year! BTW Lord Commander is probably the coolest title I'll ever achieve in anything ever.

Is that the version that John used, or has he used your more updated version?

Are you keeping the changes you have made close to your chest for now?

 Bruno ran Targ KotHH at Worlds.  He just didn't want to have to play against Lanni Winter.

Ah, I misunderstood. So it was solely to prevent net-decking for Worlds then?

Yes that is correct. As to my current version I'm always making changes to all of my decks all the time always testing new things sometimes the changes are not necessarily better but I think I've definitely made some changes that have made it better.

i played Targ KotHH. I always prefer to play my own deck that I've worked on and played a lot in big events.

actually, I wan't worried about playing against Christian's deck. It is a good deck and he played it well at Calicon, but I played against it many times and had a lot of success against it. I just asked Christian to not post it until after Worlds so people wouldn't net deck. Too many people are afraid to make their own deck nowadays.
