“My father had no use for grief. Vengeance was more to his taste.”
   –Nymeria Sand, A Feast for Crows

Players gathered from across the globe to participate in the 2018 November World Championship for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game. After a tense series of matchups, the title ultimately went to Lennart Paga of Germany, who led House Martell to victory with the help of House Stark using the Banner of the Wolf (Core Set, 203B) agenda. Now, the secrets of Paga’s cunning can be yours.

Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the 2018 World Championship Deck for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, available for pre-order at your local retailer or online through our website!

Offering a card-for-card recreation of Paga's deck with newly redesigned cards that feature gorgeous full-bleed art, this deck is perfect for new players looking for a casual entry point to A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, intermediate players who wish to explore experimental deckbuilding opportunities, and experienced players who want to expand their collection with full-art versions of favorite cards and extra copies of key neutral cards. Whether you’re looking to fine tune your existing decks or jump into the game and learn the intricacies of the long game, you are sure to find the answer in this deck.

The Viper and the Direwolf

The 2018 World Championship Deck embraces the Martell philosophy of playing the long game. Rather than trying to rush to victory, this deck takes its time and tries to slow your opponent’s progress by maintaining control over the board with cards like Valar Dohaeris (The Archmaester’s Key, 20) so that no matter which faction you face, you can stand up to the best your opponent has to offer. Then, with cards like the ruthless Ramsay Snow (Kingsmoot, 41) and Flea Bottom (Oberyn’s Revenge, 98) at your command, you can reduce the opposing army to just a few characters while yours continues to thrive, returning characters from your discard pile whenever the situation demands.

For the few opposing characters who remain in play, you can strip them of their ability to participate in challenges with cards like Shadow City Bastard (Sands of Dorne, 16) and Dornish Spy (The Brotherhood Without Banners, 115) that remove icons and keep you in control of the game. Even if a threat happens to appear on the horizon, your Stark allies can lock them down using Bran Stark (Core Set, 142) and Frozen Solid (Wolves of the North, 21). As you battle to deny your opponent any possible recourse, this deck takes advantage of cards like Secret Schemes (The Red Wedding, 76) and Exchange of Information (The Shadow City, 20) that help you find the cards you need when the moment arises for you to spring your traps and claim your victory!
