James Hovey won the North American Championship at Origins 2008 with this deck.


Here is my decklist... It was originally 70ish cards and I trimmed it down and made a few changes to make it more 3 player-y. The whole idea is to generate a lot of money with sites, darkness priestess/Dark Sacrifice, feeding the fires, and of course blood lusts to get Fakhir-Al-Din out early and often even though Hawksmoor, Anastasia, and Thunderbird are all better hitters... but Fakhir combos with the Bloodlusts and I like the built in 'Final Brawl' when he enters play.... also becomes very cheap with Feeding the Fires... he often gets played for 1 power.
