The Slow Withering

Location: Cape Town, South Africa
Number of Methuselahs: 14
Date of Event: 11 August 2007

Deck Name : The Slow Withering
Author : Roberta Crumplin
Description :
When I built this deck I had in mind something that could righteously 
stop vampires, that could interfere with their hunting in particular 
and with their actions generally. The intercept generated by Second 
Sight and by The Unmasking, coupled with Discern and Sport's Bike, 
is generally enough to really hamper a Methuselah’s plans. Add to that 
Determine and Champion and you really start to piss other players off. 
The trick is, though, to apply it all in such a fashion that you don't 
end up turning the whole table against you - crucial when you're trying 
to bring out a hefty ten event cards that restrict all other players on 
the table, except of course yourself, and those few other Imbued players 
out there. Once those event cards start hitting the table it is very hard 
for Methuselah’s to generate the same kind of staying power that an 
Imbued deck can muster. Add to that some bleed, and some fight, and 
the deck can pretty much wear down anything. It's not to say that the 
deck doesn't have it's weaknesses, or that it can't be taken down, it 
most certainly can, but they are weaknesses for other players to discover 
and, in my favour, of course, is the fact that the Imbued still remain 
relatively understudied by most.
