Loner

Card text:

Master: archetype.
Put this card on a vampire you control. During your influence phase, if this vampire successfully performed an action this turn and none of your other minions attempted any actions this turn, he or she gains 1 blood from the blood bank, if he or she is ready. A vampire can have only one archetype.

This is a difficult archetype to judge. Most decks would not use only one vampire, except perhaps for the various multi-rush decks. But multi-rush decks suffer from the same lack of master-space described under Bravo (see above).

Another deck-type that comes to mind are the various "turbo" decks, which recycle the same vampire over and over, generally using Soul Gem. But in this case, Loner does nothing as the vampire would be a different copy from the one that took the action, therefore not meeting the conditions for Loner.

There may be decks that can be built around Loner, but I'm just not seeing many at this point.

Loner might be okay for decks that include weenies as chump blockers (weenie Auspex vampires) or deflectors (weenie Dominate vampires). Might also be workable if playing Malkavians with the Madness Network.
