DoomDog 416

Inspired by the Whateley Rush deck that Gozik posted, here's a completely untested and utterly dumb Spirit Fortress variant that looks even riskier to play.

Right, I'm off to try and build a good deck...

I would recomend to add some hexes. Paralisys mark and Blood Curse are really good in rush Nic decks.

What does it do against T1 removal?

Hope for a straight flush and then fall apart when it doesn't happen? I did mention it's incredibly risky and not a particularly good deck.

It's certainly interesting.

Honestly I'm surprised we've only seen one attempt at Howard/Bunkhouse/Nic rush so far. I would have thought people would be all over it

After testing I think that old howard builds ate too much one-sided. With previous builds featuring 4 bunkhouse I had some extra ghost rocks that lets me to lay down some income and be able to win even if I did not win at 1-2 turn.

With ol howard to bunkhaus you commit to much. 4 gr for 0 control, 0 income. Yes you can reach about 7 cp first turn, but that s not enough and you don't have plan B ussually. At second or seventh turn you will have about same number of points (if you do not lose Nick). Any Rico deck beat this strategy just by laying 7 influence at start of game. With Rico and Jake that's only 4 influence with 3 more dudes - easy enough for any competitive deck playing Rico.

I'm planning to experiment with bunkhouse Nick though. Drop ol howard, put back 4 bunkhouses. Number of cheap dudes enhance this strategy for sure.

Another option is to play both ol howard and 4 bunkhouse. With bh in starting hand that's immidiatlly +2 control points. Now it is possible to reach 8-9 points first turn(in 108). And if opponent does not have enough influence or Rico we still can go all-in first turn.

Definitely need more testing.

Try running 4 Nic and not starting him (I go 3 Nic 3 Hired Guns) - it's a little slower but you can start EVERY 1 and 2 cost chud under the sun leaving you loads of rock for 0cp prod like Blake Ranch, Maza etc.

4 Whips, 4 Lepus, 4 Blight Serum for all the send home effects ever and you're pretty much golden

Aha - I have one built on here:

Here's my current version - Xui Yin adds an actual threat level to any shootout if you have 6 or mor dudes there making Straight Flushes easily achievable.
