Sooo Dockside was a thing this weekend and I went with NW in both Joust and Melee. I won best NW at the Joust and I had to show my sweet new tokens on the melee.
I went with terrible Start of 0-3 (Mirri and Varys ruined my morning) and afterwards I sweeped the last tables and went to 3-3 Here are some notes from my games. Also my notes aren't much detailed as I wished.
Apologies for I may get names wrong and I'm sorry about that.
Here is the deck: https://thronesdb.com/deck/view/100127
R1 - Targaryan Banner of the Lion - Thijs Meeuwsen
Set up for Thijs was: Mirri, Viserys and Roseroad
Me: Tourney Grounds and Old Forest Hunter (MVP all day) , Benjen
T1 - Noble Cause vs Building Orders (I fetched Milk of the Poppy)
Thijs wasn't letting go he played Jorah and Drogo
I Milked Mirri and played reducer. And saved some gold because I was sure some other form of Kill is coming so I should try to stop it
T2 - Marched vs Fortified Position - I played Fortified because I was expecting shenanigans to get Visrys out of play so I played around that.
Thijs played Plaza of Punishment and ruined my plans. Turn went his way as well.
T3 - Confiscation vs Fallen from Favor - Here I tried to come back in the game.
Thijs had other plans Marshaling the Hound and Viserys.
Game ended soon afterwards.
R2 Baratheon banner of the Sun
This game was really fast.
T1 Roen played Mellisandra and Chamber of the painted table. I don't recall what was kneeled at the turn.
I played few cards I recall Ranging party and Samwell and a Ravenprobably
T2 Roen let me go first. I marshaled one more Ranging party and Raven.
He marshaled Dupe on Mell and Varys. In dominance only Mell was left on the board and I couldn't recover from that.
Here I had to go and get my self a second Beer after I had one after Thijs.
R3 - Targaryan Banner of the Lion - Jamie "Bambi" Bamfield
I knew what was going to happen from the flip when I saw Mirri, Reducer and Roseroad vs my One character setup with few locations.
T1 I got marched vs Calm over westeros (military)
I had to play only one character in the face of Littlefinger to look for Milk or Nightmares
I found nightmares and my Little finger survived till next turn.
T2 I played Building Orders found Milk and stopped Mirri one more turn.
T3 Here I made mistake. I should have played Fortified position I had the card to establish board that could handle Mirri but I played For the watch!.
Bambi played Hound and started Wiping my board with Mirri and Military claim.
Game ended few turns later just because he was too careful.
At this point I was very depressed and tilted. Had a lunch to calm down and tanks to my buddy that was traveling with me.
R4 Here is where my rise started I played vs Lannister Lords of the Crossing - Ryan
T1 Noble Cause vs Calm over Westeros
He marshaled Tywin. I marshaled 2 Ranges (Party and Old Forest Hunter) and I had Watches of the wall
Tywin did a military challenge that he didn't survived.
T2 Trading vs Building orders.
I found my Wall.
Ryan played The Mountain so I had to postpone playing the wall and put some more guys on the boar and that being Old Bear Mormont
In the challenges I played Nightmares on the mountain and stopped him from killing someone that wasn't supposed to die. Old forest hunter that slayed Tywin went for claim.
T3 I played Fortified position so I can safely play the Wall. I recall Treachery was used twice to stop the Shadow tower previous rounds.
T4 My whole board was online and I locked the game out.
R5 Stark Fealty ? - I had few beers by that point. I play mister - Christopher Sweeney
Comment after the match was "**** the Nights Watch" I think he was upset that I hit his Sneak Attack with For the Watch! T2. Old Bear managed to put a Ranging Party into play.
T3 One of my Milks showed up and I played Milk on Robb. That pretty much sealed the game for me. We had beer afterwards.
R6 Again Stark Fealty - It was time for revenge I played vs Thijs Brother Chris Meeuwsen
T1 Sneak Attack vs Calm over Westeros - I didn't think he would play Sneak first turn because I though his set up wasn't that good. I think I had the Wall in play from Setup.
He had Catelyn and I was worried that I'll have to face 2-3 Claim Intrigue so I called Intrigue on the Calm. I had a lot of chuds to kill and had good cards in hand.
He opted for the Military that he sneaked thanks to Syrio of his own. Thank god it was only 2 Claim.
T2 Noble Cause vs For the Watch! I played Milk on Syrio as he was biggest thread on the board and left Catylin to do her thing.
HE opted in a huge Intrigue first challenge that used a lot of his resources.
After this point my notes end. I recall that my next turns I was more on the offense than defense that won me the game in the end.
That pretty much sums up the Joust. 3-3 and I got really Nice Dracula NW Tokens as a reward.
A thing I'll change in future. I'll find a space for Here to Serve. Protection from the rampad Target kill is necessary so we can protect the wall to the fullest.
P.S. For the Melee I took NW Crossing that I build the Night before the event after few more beers. I don't have online decklist for it but I'll make one tomorrow and post it here after I look at the deck (it is still in the deckbox). Thing I'll change there. I'll add 2-3x Street of Steel so I can find Longclaw faster. These were my thoughts after the day.
Here is the deck that I ran (https://thronesdb.com/deck/view/100199). I have no idea why I have 2 Longclaws in it only. It looks like I wanted better Icon spread with the Practice blade. Things I'll change are remove the Taken the black, I was planning to Pay to Win but it wasn't that prevalent or I didn't face any of those Arbor knights to Bribe them. I'll add the Street of Steel and 3rd Longclaw and go up in Nightmares/Superior Claim.
