White Wolf
Twist With Conviction, version 2.0
Janne Hägglund

2008 Tournament Rules

I hastily modified my favorite imbued deck to conform to the 2008 tournament rules: 
no Edge Explosion, no Memories of Mortality.

I had time to play it once at our regular casual pub game night.  I gained 0 VP, 
because my prey backousted me.  (I miscalculated the amount of stealth he had in 
hand.  He had only one stealth card in his ash heap, but when I attempted to 
intercept and kill all his minions for the oust, it started raining Obfuscate.  
He played two KRCs, sent 6 damage my way, and my predator had easy pickings.)

I explained the purpose of the deck challenge to my fellow players and asked them 
if this deck was a viable one, capable of game wins.  They unanimously agreed it 
was a fine and dangerous deck.
