Two minor quibbles.

First, you have Counting Favors x 1 in the Baratheon, Stark, and Targaryen decks. There is only one Counting Favors in the Core Set, so to include a Counting Favors in each of those would require three Core Sets, not two.

Second, you have Narrow Sea x 3 in the Baratheon deck and Narrow Sea x 2 in the Stark deck. There are only two Narrow Seas per Core Set, so to include five Narrow Seas would require three Core Sets.

These should be fairly minor deck changes.

Thanks for the decklists.
After buying 1 copy of the core set, and trying to play with the preconstructed decks, I was dissapointed. I played 2 player game, and the decks didn't seem very balanced, and some of the plot cards didn't make sense (when playing 2 player).
Reading through forum post on boardgamegeek.com I noticed that people strongly recommended to get an extra core set - so I did. But then I needed some decklists. Yes, I could have tried to build my own decks, but not knowing the game to well - I didn't really know where to start. And then I found this post (A user on boardgamegeek recommended it).
A few days ago I got to play a 2 player game with me having the Targaryen deck, and my opponent playing Stark. 3 hours later, the game was over - and we had only gone through the plot cards once. Exhausting game, but that's offcourse because we are not familiar with the cards. But the decks played nicely. My opponent had a hard time accepting that Viserys Targaryen was such a powerfull card. He had problems dealing with the card, but yeah - he still managed to win :)
One question though. It seemed that most of the time you would prefer that your opponent is the starting player. I understand that there can be situations where you would like to be the starting player yourself, but most of the time, the one of us winning initiative - decided that the other player should start the turn. Are we missing something, or is this a common agot lcg thing?

But yeah, thanks for the deck lists :)

Well it depends, the advantage of going first is you get the chance to make challenges first and perhaps be able to lock an opponent out by killing off key characters or using cards like Cersei Lannister (AToT) to control their board. Going second can sometimes be the better choice though in the hopes that you can sneak through challenges if your opponent over commits. With a larger card pool you would likely see more strategic elements which would make the choice between going first or second much more difficult.

While I have some other cards to build decks with, I've been using these four to (re)learn the game and it's been a very enjoyable experience. Thank you for posting these lists.

I haven't tried these out yet, but they seem to be exactly what I need since I just bought 2x Core and I'm going to bring the decks to our gaming boardgame-style. Thanks for posting these.

You don't happen to have similar tips for including a Martell Deck with 2 x Core and Princes of the Sun perhaps (since I also bought PotS)? I can't tell if I'd need to change the four base houses' decks to give some cards to the Martell deck. To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure how to build the martell deck at all. Any and all tips would be appreciated.

Here comes my first try at making a Martell deck with PotS and the leftovers from 2 x Core after building the first four decks above. The main goal is to make a deck that is balanced compared to the other four above.

This deck is not tested yet.

Pretty much this - been playing around with some heavy military / kill decks and found I really want to pre-empt my opponent and take out his key cards so that my other challenges can go through and / or my opponent doesn't have the standing strength to declare their own challenges succesfully.

Also cheers for these decks - been looking for a good "teaching setup" to entice new friends into the game... like others I found the core set is just assymetric enough to spoil the experience for a few players.

Having just acquired my second core set before even playing a game, I look forward to getting off on good footing with these. But one question, is there a reason there are no Agenda cards? Or are they not technically considered part of a deck?

There are simply no agendas in the Core Set, so there's not gonna be one in these deck lists. Agendas can be found in various chapter packs and expansion boxes.

Just a minor quibble - you list Shadowblack Lane, but there's only one copy of that in each Core Set. In the first four decks you use that card in both the Targaryen and Lannister decks, so there isn't one left over for the Martell deck.

Not a tricky one to replace (I don't think, but then I've not done this before - that's the whole reason I'm here! :D), but thought I'd mention it.

New player, looking over these decks for ideas. I was wondering about the two Lannisport Brothels used. According to the errata, that card should be unique. Is the inclusion of two in the Lannister deck a mistake, or is there a reason to include two that I'm not seeing. Thanks.

You're right, it is unique and shouldn't be included twice. But I suppose these decks where build before that clarification was added to the errata. I have two core sets from different print runs, and only one of the Lannisport Brothel cards is unique.

UPDATE: Sorry – the unique characteristic doesn't affect the ability to include the card more than once. I suppose having two may make sense due to the increased chance of drawing it early.

Yes Sam increased chance to draw it is why I included 2. I have Building Season in the Lannister deck but normally I'd use that to get a Golden Tooth Mines (Core) (even if I got one in my starting hand) So I wanted to increase my chances of getting the Brothel.

I just recently got into the game, just to play casually with some friends. first we tried it with 1x core set, but found it favoring the starks and lannisters, so I decided to get a 2nd core set and make the four 60 cards deck stated above. The game play has DRASTICALLY improved, i've played 3 games against a friend, both of us being complete beginners, and they were all three 2+hr fun filled battles. just wanted to say thanks ^^

any advice for a martell deck and greyjoy deck that would be as balanced as these four decks and which expansions would i have to buy to make these decks?

HI,

Following the advice on the Forum, I bought 2 Core sets, 1 KotS set, 1 PotS set and built the decks on this post. The game is amazing and my gaming group loved it.

After a few games we had some questions. Is the Lanister deck weaker then the other decks? Why there is a Maester Aemon in the Lanister and in the Targaryen decks since there are no Night's Watch characters in those decks? For the Lanisters he can be subistituted for Grand Maester Pycelle (for a total of 2 in the deck), but for the Targaryen I have no idea for whom to substitute.

Thank You,

LePe

Well Maester Aemon can kneel to save himself. So during most military attacks against you, you just kneel him to save himself and you don't have to kill anyone. He just sits there and soaks up claim.
