"Nossie Beat-Down"

Usually the Nosferatu sneak and bleed, with a little bit of combat. I decided to make a deck where they beat people up, with a little bit of sneak and bleed. Thus, this deck concentrates primarily on Potence, secondarily on Animalism, with just enough Obfuscate to take occasional stealth actions when it counts. I've played this deck several times, and it's done very well. It would probably be creamed by a really dedicated combat deck, but it trashes others nicely, while being able to get enough minions out to bleed consistently as well.

In combat, for the most part you don't expect to press, you just try to do as much damage as possible in one blow. When you have a combo in hand like Fists of Death, Increased Strength, and Burning Wrath, you can easily burn a large vampire with one strike, and a Taste of Vitae makes that go down very nicely. :) If you have Tusk out and The Barrens, your combats will go fantastically well, since you always know just which card in your hand would be worth discarding right now to get the next one in your Library.

I will probably replace Ebanezer with Beast next time.
