Maybe a ventrue Politics with titled midcaps.
Could also be with one "star" vampire, but not only rely entirely on that one.
About managing combat, I don't know what is best possible with ventrues.
But combat ends or no combat seems to be a gdod solution as it could stuck combat decks with lot of combat cards.
Or give them a good reason to go rush elsewhere...
