Fall of London: Banu Haqim

This series will review the new cards in the upcoming Fall of London set. Today, we'll go over the new Banu Haqim.

Adisa

You could say I like small vampires with Obfuscate and it's true.  They can get stuff done.  Adisa can do a lot of interesting things.  Let's take a look.

Disciplines

As a 3-cap, Adisa has only two inferior disciplines.  In my opinion, she has the best two of the Banu Haqim's clan disciplines (at least at inferior).  As I mentioned, she can get things done with o.  It's always good to have little guys that can do stuff for you.  Her c allows you to manage combat and with the change to Quickness, she can do some good work in combat.  Concealed or Disguised weapons are the most logical choice for her.

Specials

We all know that the current meta is ally heavy (and Fall of London may exacerbate that).  Adisa, hunter of Legionnaires.  This is a special that will get a workout in most games, if you want it you.  You don't even need much support.  A .44 Magnum and Adisa might be the best 5 pool you can spend if you're ally hunting.  She can also target weenies, putting a hurt on various breed archetypes.  While it's better to prevent the progeny from coming into play, rushing them down is the next best thing.

That's a very solid package for a 3-cap vampire, so Adisa has a drawback as well.  Not being able to unlock on a turn following a hunt really isn't that brutal of a drawback.  You can work around it with Taste of Vitae in your combat package, a hunting ground, of just a simple Blood Doll.  It does mean that Adisa will not be farming pool for you, but she's got more important things to do.

Overview

I really love Adisa for a variety of reasons.  While you'll probably not want more than one copy in most decks that extra copy you get in the Fall of London set is going to find use in that other deck.  In fact, I'll probably be looking to put 4+ copies of her in decks because I love those small o vampires.

While Adisa is nothing to build around, she's not your star.  She'll find a spot in many decks.  I wish all support vampires were this good.

Fall of London: Nosferatu

This series will review the new cards in the upcoming Fall of London set. Today, we'll go over the new Nosferatu, revealing the remaining Nosferatu from the set. Thanks to BCP for allowing me to share these with you. Oskar Anasov Oskar was previewed by Black Chantry during the initial round of spoilers. Disciplines For an 8-capacity vampire, Oskar has a somewhat subpar discipline spread, having p and c instead of P .  As always O will allow Oskar to succeed at whatever actions he wants and I has perhaps the single best short-chain combat. How do p and c fit in then?  He has no current clanmates that have c (the new The Guardian below being the lone exception).  Were Oskar an Anarch, he could run a Dust Up combat package, ensuring both his survival in close combat and giving him the tools to hand out significant damage.  However, without changing sects, I fear we have little to do with these inferiors unless we pair him with The Guardian.  We

Fall of London: Toreador

This series will review the new cards in the upcoming Fall of London set. Today, we'll go over the new Toreador, revealing all of them. Thanks to BCP for allowing me to share these with you. Regina Blake We'll start with a new Toreador mid-cap. Disciplines First, thing she has no Celerity whatsoever.  I'm not sure that's problematic.  Toreador only really care about Celerity for Resist Earth's Grasp stealth or if they're a gun-combat deck.  More A for group 6 Toreador, which has been seriously lacking.  More R for the group, which seems highly focused on it already. Specials This could be an interesting special to build around.  There are a lot of locations that cost pool whose cost can be defrayed with her special.  She's Toreador so the Art Museum is an obvious choice to have in decks with her.  Creepshow Casino is another popular choice for Toreador decks.  Given her A , any of the media locations are also good cho
