This deck takes Desolation Row's high-risk, high-reward mechanic and cranks it up a notch. Because Sloane is in town, and she's rarin' to shoot something.
The goal is the same as many DR decks: Allie to Town Square, boot for a control, and run the job to bring her home. What's nice about this deck is that even if they call out Allie after she boots, you can have up to 3 unbooted dudes (provided Travis doesn't grift) join the shootout due to Sloane's trait. Alternatively, you can bring them into the job's posse on the next turn if they don't call her out.
Obviously, the sucess of the job is incredibly important, as you will be making 1 gr per day if you win lowball, and you're losing gr if you lose lowball. Cards like Bowie Knife, The Stakes Just Rose, and Pinto help to keep a decently powered stud dude in the shootout and help counter strong shootout actions like Pistol Whip, Sun in Yer Eyes, or Jade Rabbit kung-fu.
Finally, draw structure. Two values, 3 and 7 have 16 cards each. You have a back up (straight) flush, with Comin' Up Roses to help if you need it.
Overall, this is a really fun deck that can generate tons of control without having to drop a ton of deeds. It's risky, but man is it fun!
