The deck is designed to cycle the Obeah cards until a Salubri comes
out. And in a tournament scene with Dominate everywhere, stealing
your prey's last untapped minion and bleeding for 6 with him was
always a nice way to end a round. Heidelburg allows you to fill up on
their blood and/or burn a weenie by placing a multi-countered
Infernal Familiar on it.

The deck started out as another way to burn other people's minions -
building up counters on the Infernal Familiar, transferring it over
to a small to mid cap vampire that was giving me grief, letting them
burn, laughing at them, and then recycling the Familiar back out.
Obeah gave me a way to take control of other minions, abuse them with
Heidelburg, and Resurrect the Infernal Familiar. Thaumaturgy gave me
the Familiar, and knowing there would be a lot of Dominate at a
tourney, the Tremere were a given. The new Tremere also gave me a
Presence cycle in case my Salubri couldn't. Not having enough
Infernal Familiars and Resurrections made me build a deck that
actually won rounds rather than let me carry out my elaborate combo.
I hate it when I'm forced into playing VTES rather than my own
bizarre mini-game.
