Hi there, Last saturday we had a lovely day at the game store the Lab in Utrecht and I happen to ended up on the top of the foodchain ;)
I had to face 3 nice decks and a landslide deck.
The first opponent was a Justice In Exile deck, with "Thunder Boy" Nabbe and Hattie DeLorre. I was quite affraid of the potential, since well I cheat regularly. The good news was that his economy sucked. he was unable to play anything. My economy was fine as always. Milt Clemons and Makaio Kaleo, Esq. generate a few rocks, Hustled, Monte Bank and just deeds makes sure I can generally always empty my hand. I dominated the game, but was not able to finish it off. Things turned around when milt was aced with a coachwhip. Giving my opponent 8 rock. Unfortunately for him there was no more time.
second I faced a landslide The 108 Righteous Bandits deck. we were competing for economy. I had 14 and he had 15 at some point. Fred Aims with an Outlaw Mask was collecting influence from the bounty in town square to prevent a victory for him. while I was slowly filling Allie Hensman up with control. Hustings made the turn go slower, because he need to tap all his dudes all the time to prevent my victory. He did not get his only The Evidence the second time to deny my influence and it was time again. At that point Hustings made sure I won it by a landslide (pun intended).
The thrid opponent had an almost exact Justice In Exile deck. So I was a little more prepared. He also had economyproblems. He was gathering controlpoints at my Hunter Protections but he made the mistake to give up townsquare. Making it very hard for him to move around. So I could take control of all his deeds, forcing him to make moving actions which were spreading him up. At that point it was time and I had again more control points.
Last was the Full Moon Brotherhood. My opponent just got it from the internet the night before, so didn't really know how to get the most out of it. It seemed to have potential, but I cant remember anithing dominating the game. I won just in time on control.
Any final thoughts: This deck has great synergy and it flows very well. Rico Rodegain has become less usefull since he lost its influence. You can swap him if your opponent is clearly playing a landslidedeck for Genesee "Gina" Tailfeathers. Bad Company was the least usefull card this game, it might be better to play a Mugging.
