1st Stark LCG Deck

Recommended Posts

Alright, i've returned after many months and finally gotten around to LCG-ifying my decks with great reluctance. since iv ebeen out for awhile im gonna bow to the superior wisdom of the internets here and post my deck list to see what you all have to say. i've played 4 games with it so far and ive won at least 3 of em, inculding a very fun and close game with stag lord's bastard of a bara deck the other night so i figure im doing at least something right (and Red Terror, if your lurking about i can't for the life of me remember how our second game went so yeah).

Especially when you are looking at the cost of some of those cards. King Robb really helps letting you get those armies out on the cheap, but getting Robb out early enough to make a difference may become a bit of a problem.

Well, I think Summoning Season is generally used for Robb, no? Or Jeyne, too. So, with Jeyne he's practically running Robb x3; couple that with search and he should be okay. The income might worry me a bit, as well...what I've found in my winter decks is usually one of the in-house 2 cost reducer can be a big help, but that's also limited (a boon against most location hate, a bane in that you've got 6 already...). Narrow Seas, maybe? I might run a Warhorn or two just to deal with some of the nastier locations you may run into, but that's just preference really.

Is running the 2 versions of Eddard beneficial? I'm thinking the Tower of the Hand one is so good that may want to just stick with him. Also, I know Cat o' the Canals is a beast, but...Core Set Arya with Tower Eddard can get you some good draw, especially since both are any phase.

Really, though, these are mostly aesthetics, I guess. Looks to be a good deck.

thanks for the comments guys. yeah, since square one the income was always alittle bit of a worry for me, considering how much i relied on those Kingdoms in the past. in the 4 games ive played so far i havent had much of a problem with income, though im pretty sure thats mostly luck so far. though im pushing it with all the limited, im sitting on two godswoods im trying to find space for. right now im thinkin core set eddard and a storm dancer might come out. to be honest, ive never been a fan of the Seas, even back when they first came out. the one time use thing always seemed a bit lacking in my own opinion though i know im in the extreme minority, and i dont have much use for influence.

Flops have been decent, owing mostly to the refugees me thinks. the basic premise of the deck is focusing on Robb and those armys, and someone already pointed out to me the glaring flaw of not having any distinct masterys in the deck so i could stand Robb to use the ability twice. but again not necessary but would be nice to have.

Whaddaya guys think on the plots. its probably just my paranoia mixed with such little variety in legal plots these days but ive been focusing most of my attention on them. the two power of arms is nice but im not sure i need both. part of me really wants building season in there. also i was looking at The Raven's Song as a way to deal with summer cards when i just dont have a raven on hand(its happened more times than youd think lol, damned summer's champions), but no one around heres really used it to any effect yet.

Well, I like The Power of Arms x2, but that being said, maybe Siege of Riverrun or After the Mummer's Ford? Gives you a different Military Battle plot to choose from for To Be A Wolf if you don't wanna burn your Fury early (nice to save it for a good character later if you can, I think). I'm not sure 2 The Long Winter is necessary, really, but I guess the redundancy is okay. I've never had much luck with Kings in the North, either. I kind of think that Winter is Coming would be a better choice, especially on a claim 2 plot.
