This original deck idea was not made by me! I played it on OCTGN and adapted it.

It's a rush deck and nothing but. I normally opened with art of seduction, but depending on the matchup I also opened with forgotten plans or fear of winter. Ideally you'll build up enough power for a win on turn 2 with to the spears, was routinely able to win on turn 2/turn 3 plot flip with either red wedding or into the lists.

2 turns! I've never seen a two turn win at all, though my game group and myself aren't playing at this level of quality.

As the obvious question then, what decks did you struggle most against?
as these decks usually are, it's pretty fragile. I would probably had trouble with any sort of burn deck, decks using Westeros Bleeds, or things that could cycle into valar outside of the plot phase. The toughest game of the day was one I wouldn't of excepted, and that was the KotR deck where I stuck myself with Dry Season for 2 turns.
I've been playing a similar deck too. For me, Ser Eldon Estermont (MotM) is an MVP in this deck.

very smart! Throw a taste for blood on him and you're golden. I also realized at the tournament I was missing Stannis. I will likely lose some copies of Mace as he wasn't as effective as I thought he'd be.
Great deck! Why aren't you playing BrightWater Men-at-Arms since you want to rush? I get that he is no knight but still a great card for rush decks.
No renowned on the bright water, would rather have that gold for someone that is helping me win quicker.
I try the deck. And yes, first and second turn kill are possible.
It has an explosive first turn. I usually force the oponent to use valhar on his second, with the Red Viper in my hand. Rarely need the third or fourth torn.
A great deck!
I usually start with art of seduction so they can't use valar 2nd turn :P.
