Looking at all the exciting posts on the newsgroup about Dominate bounce, weenies (through transfers) & Heart being too broken, I thought I’d step in and talk about what is clearly the most broken discipline in the game — Quietus.
Evidence of brokenness:
- NAC 08 was won by an Assamite deck.
- Inflamed by this, Matt Morgan went back in time an entire year. He then spent an the next 12 months trying to win a a tournament with an Assamite deck. After 12 months of no success he finally cracked on the right deck in time to lend it to Ben Peal to win the NAC & start the whole time travel thing again.
- Matt’s deck took time to get to the point where he felt he could play it against mere mortals – this included reducing the Quietus cards to 8. Peal, on the verge of godhood, decided to remove 2 more overpowered Quietus cards to give everyone else a better chance of winning.
- 10,000 Finnish players can’t be wrong.
- The Path of Blood website has been placed on the CIA watch list as ‘Promoting dangerous thoughts of aggression‘.
- Ben Peal decided to break the discipline of Obfuscate by removing silly, weak, inferior, dominate & adding Quietus — the superior killing discipline. This was in order to win — no nice guy business from him.
- The winners of the NAC & EC 08 used zero bounce cards in their decks & only 3 Pentex Subversions.
But 6 Quietus cards.

Fear them, they hide in shadows.
