Exciting news for the VTES Community arrived earlier this month. Black Chantry will publish new starter decks with four Sabbat clans being featured. Namely these decks
- Parliament of Shadows — Lasombra
- A stealth-based vote and bleed deck with a rather high avg. capacity vampires.
- Den of Fiends — Toreador antitribu
- A breed and boon deck, with a number of hard-to-get cards like Embrace (9) and Foundation Exhibit (3).
- Pact with Nephandi — Tremere antitribu
- A classic Nephandus deck, even with 5 copies of Antonine d’Erlette and a whooping 8 Nephandus allies.
- Den of Fiends — Tzimisce
- A bleed & block deck with a heavy emphasis on aggravated damage.
The decks contain 12 vampires and 77 library cards (as with the previous starter decks). In addition, each of the the decks contain some new crypt cards, and new artwork for a few of the crypt and the library cards. As release date for the new decks February 16th, 2019 was given, the recommended retailer price is 22 EUR/20 US dollars.
What I really like about these starter decks is, that they’re really playable in the sense that these decks are archetype decks, and (with or without some minor modifications) you can even take these decks to tournaments.
