New Blood is a collection of five 55-card preconstructed decks for introductory games of Vampire: The Eternal Struggle. These decks are simpler than tournament level decks, but showcase all the basic mechanics of the game. They are balanced, for a fun and exciting first try of Vampire: The Eternal Struggle. Some of the cards included are reprints and some are new for this set, all ready to mix with cards from other sets.
Clan Malkavian are seers and lunatics both – eerie oracles of vampire society. While plagued by afflictions of the mind, they are gifted with supernatural insight.
This deck is a toolbox that mixes bleeding and political actions, focused on dealing direct damage against enemy Methuselahs. Its vampires forsake combat skills for stealth and cunning.
Clan Nosferatu are horrors, grotesquely deformed by the Embrace. They hide in shadows and underground darkness, commanding animals as spies and allies in battle.
This deck builds a strong defence with many animal helpers. It slowly gnaws at its prey, but can also surprise by smashing enemy vampires into torpor.
Clan Toreador are artists and divas, obsessed with beauty and passion. They are the social elite among the undead, mesmerizing and awestriking to behold.
This deck tries to take political control over the game, using diversion and other tricks to pass enemy defenses. It does damage with both bleeds and political actions.
Clan Tremere are vampiric warlocks, masters of rituals of Blood Sorcery. Their powers make them arrogant and deadly, and they always lust for more occult lore.
This deck takes a defensive stance, taking advantage of its vampires´ psychic powers. It weakens its enemies with persistent attrition and Blood Sorcery combat skills.
Clan Ventrue are the ”blue bloods”, the self-proclaimed rulers of all vampires and mortals. They seek to lead by any means necessary – manipulating the weak, destroying the strong.
This deck is a toolbox with a stable defence both in reaction cards and combat, and a “lock and bleed” offence capable of explosive turns when the opportunity arises.
