I won a tournament with this deck this past weekend. Figured I would
share the decklist with the group:

Tournament: Mother of Horrors, Somerset, MA
Date: May 14, 2006
Number of players: 10
Credit to Dave Weesner (newly established Prince of Fall River, MA) for
finding a new VTES-friendly locale (Stillpoint Games & Comics in
Somerset, MA) and running a tournament there.

Deck Name : Akunanse Safari Kingdom
Author : Matt Hirsch - "Mongrel (MDH)" - mongrel // at \\
Description :
A fairly defensive deck using Pack Alpha to tool up a Magaji with many
retainers, maybe tack on a Guardian Angel or Ivory Bow, and then put on
the No Secrets.  The deck doesn't bleed very strongly, but it can win a
war of attrition (or make a quick finish with Anarchist Uprising).

Other notes:

 - NSA Trio doesn't appear very strong, but it forces a S:CE deck to
shut down for a turn. I think its power is underestimated by most
 - Storage Annex is great for hiding cards from info-gatherer effects.
Specifically, I was able to hide my Anarchist Uprising in the Storage
Annex when my prey had an Owl Companion on his primary blocking vamp.
 - I would have preferred to put in more Uchennas, but I only bought
one Akunanse starter and I was building this deck at 2am the night
before the tournament.  Nkule worked just fine in the 3  preliminary
rounds, and I lucked into pulling up Uchenna in the finals.
 - I have a hard time imagining putting Wanderer's Counsel in a deck.
I think that putting in political action cards is much more useful.
The "2am" version of this deck had 2 Wanderer's Counsel and 2 political
actions, but in the "9am" version I switched it to 4 political actions.
 - Smiling Jack is a consideration for this kind of deck, but I really
don't like the amount of table hate that Jack creates.  I felt that
Powerbase: Montreal was kind of pushing it.
