Ok, so I have three decks that I am considering for the next FNM.  The first two have seen play before and I have tested them out.  They did pretty well, but I am debating on whether I want to use a deck I know will atleast hold its own, or a completely new deck that has never been played before.  Here's the deck lists for each deck.  What deck do you think I should use?

So what do you think?  BR Vampires, BW Exalted or BG Zombies?
If you're going in looking to win, play the deck with which you have the most familiarity.  There are going to be a lot of new decks which you have never seen and with those, it's better to know your interactions and synergies than to experiment.

If you're just looking to have fun and don't mind facing off against an army of midrange thragtusk decks and sideboards full of graveyard hate, zoom the zombies.  But I would put more zombies into it, first.  Oh, and ghoultree <3s mulch and grisly salvage.
Next thing you will tell me Browbeat is bad.
Thanks! I missed the mulch/grisly salvage combo, touche! I believe I will be running my Vamp deck for it. I also have a lot of work to do on the Zombie deck!
