For December 2012 the Deck of the Month is the tournament winning deck “Extremely Silent and Incredibly Far Away” played by Dennis Lien (USA). The deck is a variation of the classic “Tariq Eats the World” deck, which uses Tariq the Silent to rush, torporize and diablerize his opponents key vampires. Later in the game the deck is able to block quite well using Draught of the Soul (and other cards). Erik Torstensson (SWE) won a tournament with a similar deck in December. Although Erik’s deck is the more efficient one, but Dennis deck offers more surprises like Gear Up or Daemonic Possession.
Originally I had chosen “Alamut’s Horror Museum” played by Genís Prats (ESP), since I had been seeing a very similar deck in a tournament in the Netherlands in late December. Unfortunately immediately after posting the DotM article, I discovered that the deck already was Deck of the Month January 2012 (as chosen by Mephistopheles on HunFragment).
