Matt Morgan's Tournament Winning Deck

Deck Name : Akunanse bleed and block v2
Author : Matt Morgan
Description : Bleed forward and block backward.  No Secrets From the
Magaji and Guardian Angel (or a gun of some sort) will stop many decks
dead in their tracks.  This deck has an answer to most strategies and
bleeds very well besides.  Its main weakness is if other decks can
block it tooling up.  This was evidenced in this year's NERQ when all 
my bleed permanents were blocked so even after I ran my prey out of
s:ce, I couldn't do much other than bleed for 1.

I think this deck is one of the best I've ever made.  That is evidenced 
by its performance in two tournaments against some of the top players 
in the US (if not the world).  Anyone who feels that Legacies of Blood 
isn't a strong set, should try something like this.  This version may 
not be ideal for every metagame as it is built to withstand some serious 
combat if necessary and it could have more stealth if that would be 
helpful.  Also, in an extremely stealthy environment, more permanent 
intercept may be necessary.  Delaying Tactics could certainly go in 
here if you aren't confident of catching every vote.  Some of the 
Predator's Communion could be Forced Awakening, which would be crucial 
verses a Giovanni powerbleed running The Sleeping Mind.  The main idea 
here is to have a wallish deck that can bleed forward well.  I think 
a deck with No Secrets From the Magaji is perfectly suited to such 
a concept because I only block forward when it's necessary or 
advantageous.  I don't need to block my prey to kill him.  First of all, 
this lets my prey play his game and weaken his prey before I get him 
(in a perfect world) and secondly this makes it less likely for me to 
lose my No Secrets before my predator's turn, which could be fairly
