I've got the Facebook Pages Manager installed on my phone now, so that should make keeping everyone up to day with those pics and stats much easier. Expect me to be putting information up on the podcast's Facebook page.

More info can be found on the Facebook page, including house, agenda, restricted breakdowns, but the final results were that Zeiler's updated Targ KotHH beat my Greyjoy Maesters in the finals.

Sorry about the lack of updates on the forum, it’s way easier to post info from our phones on the Facebook page.  So pretty much everything is going to be brought over from there (with a few modifications for where Will’s info was incomplete).

 

We had 16 for the melee (although I didn’t play in it, just watched for the first round before I had to head out) loaded with out of towners.  I don’t have a lot of specific info about the tournament.  I know the top four were Will Lentz, Ben Terpstra, David Jones, and Luke Reed with Will Lentz winning it in the end.  I know he was playing a Martell control deck with Quentyn designed to take advantage of the different melee objectives we tried out for the tourney.  Ask him for a better description of how the objectives made the tournament ‘cause I don’t know it.

 

We had 24 for the joust on Saturday with 6 states represented (MO, AR, OK, IA, IL, TN) as well as three former world champions (myself, Greg Atkinson, and Luke Reed) so there was some pretty stiff competition.

 

House Breakdown:

Martell 3

Lannister 3

Baratheon 4

Stark 6

Greyjoy 3

Targaryen 4

Neutral 1

 

Agenda Breakdown:

House of Dreams 7

The Maester’s Path 3

Knights of the Hollow Hill 6

City of Shadows 1

Kings of Summer 1

Knights of the Realm 1

Treaty with the Isles 1

The Power Behind the Throne 1

Wilding (The Free Folk, The Last Giants, Blood of the First Men) 1

Unknown 2 (possibly no agenda but I will update for sure once I get my hands on decklists as I don't remember seeing any no agenda players)

 

Restricted Card Breakdown:

Val 2

Search and Detain 4

Fury of the Dragon 1

Narrow Escape 2

No Restricted 3

Venomous Blade 1

Fear of Winter 1

The Maester’s Path 3

Fury of the Wolf 1

The Viper’s Bannermen 3

Pyromancer’s Cache 1

Castellan of the Rock 1

Fury of the Lion 1

 

We played 5 rounds of Swiss (although we only needed 4 since we had 1 undefeated after that amount of time) and then a cut to top 8 after a dinner break. 

 

Top 8 Pairings:

Zach Bunn (Targ KotHH) v. Matt Phillips (Bara ???)

Will Lentz (Greyjoy TMP) v. Chris Kizer (Greyjoy HoD – Seastone Chair)

Greg Atkinson (Lanni Wildlings) v. Luke Reed (Stark TMP)

Brett Zeiler (Targ KotHH) v. Brett Vaughn (Stark TMP)

 

Top 4 Pairings:

Zach Bunn (Targ KotHH) v. Will Lentz (Greyjoy TMP)

Luke Reed (Stark TMP) v. Brett Zeiler (Targ KotHH)

 

Final Pairings:

Will Lentz (Greyjoy TMP) v. Brett Zeiler (Targ KotHH)

 

And I (Brett Zeiler) ended up winning for a Moonboy Classic two-peat after a really good game against Will (I only had one loss all day which was against Zach Bunn who was also playing Targ KotHH).  I was playing a modified version of Bruno’s worlds deck (as I tend to do I “trimmed the fat, took out the bad cards, and put in some good ones” :P) which is what I usually do when I do well in events.  I’ll post a brief tourney report later this afternoon but be looking for a more in depth one on 2 Champs 1 Chump in the next few weeks.

 

I’ll have top 8 decklists posted later this evening after I run by the store to grab them and get them written up.  Until then I hope this sates your thirst Dennis!

No, the exact outcry is : "OH NO! ANOTHER GOOD PLAYER WON WITH TARG KOTHH AND THERE ARE ONLY KOTHH AND MAESTERS IN TOP AGAIN ?!?! WE NEED ERATTA/RESTRICTION "PRONTO" !!!!

 

Looks like HOD didn't shift the meta at all. Or maybe just top players didn't take the risk.

this is more along the lines of what i was thinking. Just sad that the meta hasnt shifted one iota since worlds.

To be fair, all we got since worlds was a single chapter pack with a middling agenda.

I don't think things are all that stale; the top 8 had a HoD deck, a Bara deck, and a Lanni WIldlings deck. Sure, people gravitated toward Targ KoTHH after Bruno won Worlds with it, but that was to be expected. I actually think that the MoonBoy decklists look relatively diverse. It is encouraging more than anything.

And there are the top 8 Moonboy Classic 2013 decklists (aside from Luke's which I'm still waiting on)!  As promised I have a quick tourney report but tune into 2 Champs 1 Chump next week to hear a slightly more detailed version!

 

After seeing Bruno playing his deck at Worlds it looked like a ton of fun and built it up pretty much immediately.  It did in fact turn out to be a blast to play and once I trimmed it down to 60 and made a few swaps (the Too Proud to Bow was put in at the last minute by taking out a The Hatchling's Feast to have a little tech against wildings and maesters; it was pretty average all day until finals against WIll where it pretty much won me the game).  I'm not saying my version is any better than Bruno's although it's more to my tastes and I'd recommend giving it a try.

 

Round 1 I played against Danny from IA who was also playing Targ KotHH.  She told me before the game started that she hadn't every played the deck before and that someone else had given it to her to play.  If she had been a little more aggressive with Aegon's Hill and Meereen Tourney Grounds it may have changed the game but in the end I just had answers to all the guys she played and rode it out to victory. 1-0

Round 2 was against someone whose name I've honestly forgotten (sorry man I'm awful with names until I've met you several times; ask the Tulsa guys who I still get mixed up all the time!) playing Martell KotHH.  Again this would have been a very different game had he been packing Valar in his plot deck but without it he wasn't able to compensate for the guys I was killing and keeping him from winning challenges. 2-0

Round 3 was against none other than local superstar Greg Atkinson and his Lanni Wildling deck.  This was the only game all day that Rule by Decree did what it was supposed to for me (in all the others I usually played it when both players had few cards in hand just to make sure it didn't bite me later) but I did make Greg discard ~10 cards on plot 2.  I also had Aegon's Hill doing work all game which killed off several Wilding Hordes and other unique characters.  Greg did get off to an early lead in board position and power but I was able to kill off enough guys to stabilize and bring in the win just in the nick of time.  The biggest play of the game was on the last turn using Much and More into Rhaenys's Hill to steal 10ish guys out of his discard pile and swoop in for a dominant challenge phase. 3-0

Round 4 was against Brett Vaughn from AR playing a really cool Stark Maester deck.  He was playing Follower of the Many-Faced God and stalwart guys to stand his maesters with chains as well as guaranteeing he always had a board full of guys.  For the first several rounds I was playing near Brett and anytime I looked over he always had a ton of guys in play no matter what point of the game he was in.  This was a super tight game than came down to the wire.  When I won it he had 15 power but still had 1 chain left to move off his agenda.  He also played 3 Dissensions against me this game and that was pretty infuriating :P. 4-0

Round 5 was against Zach Bunn from OK playing another (very different) Targ KotHH deck.  I got pretty much stomped all game starting on plot 1: I had Much and More for the first time all day in my opening hand and used Rule by Decree as my first plot.  He had City of Lies to counter it and luckily only had 1 shadows card to put it making my Rule by Decree do nothing rather than making me discard down to 4.  Still he had all the tricks all game and I never really got a foothold leading to my first loss of the day. 4-1, making the cut as the second seed in top 8

Top 8 was against Brett Vaughn again and this game was as different as possible from our match in Swiss.  He couldn't seem to play a card I didn't have an answer to and rode it out to a pretty quick victory.

Top 4 was against Luke Reed's Stark Maesters in probably my toughest match all day (that I won at least).  He had a pretty firm grip on the game with several Northern Cavalry Flanks and 2 Northern Outposts making it pretty much impossible for me to win a challenge on attack without stealth although I did well enough in intrigues and winning a few random challenges here and there to get up to 6 or 7 power.  This game came down to time as Luke had 1 chain left of his house card I all I had to do was play defensively and keep him form moving it off for the win since he was at 12 power.  Had we been playing without time I think I probably would have had the game anyways as I had board position and he was drawing off the top every turn.

Finals was against Will Lentz and his Greyjoy Maester deck, and for the details of this game you should probably tune into the next episode of 2C1C to hear more!

Sorry, i cant resist. Im posting from my phone so it isnt pretty.

While a small sampling, it is clear as of now HOD hasnt really changed much. Maybe not as broken as suggested, and certainly no substitute for new packs in a stale meta. Congrats to the winner, but im excited for a fresh cycle.

Thanks guys for all the stats/updates here and on FB.  Congrats to the winner!

Sounds like a good turnout and a nice variety of decks/agendas/restricted cards were represented (although maybe not in the Top 4…)
