For our final previews before our big Strawberry release events at Anthrocon, July 4th - 7th, we'll be showing off what each of the minidecks contain!
Today we'll take a look at the Otherkin Minideck from Welcome Freshmen!
In the Otherkin Minideck, Strawberry and the Followers of Kakok, your deck focuses on controlling your opponents with your devoted followers!
Here's Tarsica, Kakok Servant, a Furre card -- part of your harem. Tarsica's not very good at pleasuring other Furres (the numbers in the bottom left, below the heart icon, are how much pleasure Tarsica gives to other Furres of each gender). But this Servant's powers are in the skill box: If you exhaust and climax Tarsica, you can stop a Furre or Action card that someone is trying to play, and send it straight to its owner's couch (discard pile). An opponent can choose to lose 5 stamina to stop Tarsica's effect (Tarsica will still be climaxed and on your couch), but either way, you're coming out ahead!
A Furre can't exhaust the turn it comes into the scene, so your opponent will still have some time to play anything important before you can deny stuff with Tarsica. In that case, you just need to surprise your opponent!
Members Only is a one-shot Action card. It's also a Surprise, which means you can play it on anyone's turn, instead of just your own. It denies a Furre or Action card, just like Tarsica. Instead of waiting to be able to activate it, you just pay Members Only's cost in the upper right corner, resolve its effect, and put it onto your couch.
Unlike Tarsica, your opponent doesn't get the option to lose 5 stamina. It's a firm denial. The only restriction is that the denied card must be Male or Female. This might sound like a big restriction, but the other four minidecks in Welcome Freshmen are Male, Female, and Herm, meaning it can deny 2 out of 3 of your opponents. Start making friends with the Herm player!
Denial is good for you. But wouldn't it be better if there was something that could go on top of that denial? Something so powerful, so game-changing, that your opponents will actively avoid playing cards?
Kakok is irresistible. Everyone joins Kakok. Even C'duyu can be persuaded to join. With Kakok on your side, you can pay an extra 2 AP and 1 Otherkin GP to not only deny a Furre, but put that Furre into the scene under your control.
Your opponent's harem? It's your harem now.
We'll explore another minideck tomorrow!
Be one of the first to control everyone! Preorder your cards today!

I'm curious about how cards like Kakok, All Mine, and Dissension will work with the new gender restrictive Owner cards. Will I be able to gain control of a Female furre with Dissension if my Owner card is Soap (who is restricted to Male and Herm genders only)?

@Tegome: So that WAS Strawberry peeping on the couple. What a naughty girl. :)

If you look closely, you'll see that Members Only costs 2 Action Points, 1 Otherkin Gender Point, and 1 Strawberry Head.

@Polkakitty: Graduates and Gangbangs highlights Lily, Welcome Freshmen focuses on Marlii, and both decks feature Boy Toy and Strawberry. :)

Tarsica has a much more interesting dynamic going on than Spitty-kitty, I think. Shi can put your opponent into a situation where they have to either lose a Furre, giving you the edge in bed, or lose SP, making it easier to win by direct pleasure with something like Facial Battalion. Both things that are worth a lot more than a few AP, and there's also the possibility of using Tighten Up to get a second shot (fun fact: hibernating Furres can still have activated skills!) With Kakok out, I'm sure they'll always choose to lose SP, but that's okay, because making your opponent lose SP is how you win....
So yeah, it's the kind of card that I really want to try out, and I think it has a lot of interesting interactions with other cards.
By the way, with the two deckboxes, is the intent that Graduates and Gangbangs focuses on the returning characters from 2nd Vanilla while Welcome Freshmen focuses on the new characters? That's the impression I'm getting, anyway.

... i can see much trouble ahead if certain cards are played against me

Dayum..... so many deck styles to play with! Though I've been wondering, do the cards get shipped on the release date.... or after AC?

This is a little bit more dangerous deck than the G&G's , but I think you can put together both decks and make one big bad-ass deck

I'm liking Tarsica and Members only. Bonus points for being an otter :3
