This pile of cardboard went 2-2 at the Origins Name-a-Card event, taking top First Nations by default. There are a lot of little tricks in here; I often design decks by compiling a lot of little tricks and winnowing out the ones that don't work as intended. Unfortunately, I didn't really have any chance to playtest this deck, so most of the bad tricks are still in there. (Which tricks don't work is left as an exercise for the reader.)

I'm curious as to what you're fishing for with the Agent.

I like the deck, and you seem like you'd be pretty flush with cash to handle most issues.

What is the goal with shootouts? Legal Full Houses? Force your opponent to cheat? You do have a lot of cheating punishment in the deck, but not too many ways to reduce bullets.

The Agent's there for cheap Influence and early Kidnappin' defense, not much more.

The goal for shootouts is Four-of-a-Kind, but the real goal is to play chess, avoiding shootouts as much as possible. This doesn't work as well as I would like, unfortunately....

Thanks for sharing, and for playing an interactive EW deck. :)

I think the EW will get a boost from their new 0 upkeep dudes in 2T2D, particularly for the Town Square blockade deck so look forward to seeing how that changes starting posses. Will also help Mariel Lewis as it will give you more mobile influence to accompany here on your Election Day Slaughter and Kidnappin' - sending dudes home when on these jobs is great.

As ever, playtests appreciates people posting decks from across teh tournament spectrum.

If you're trying to do chess, might I recommend the following?

A few more horses for mobility. Spirit Trails for more mobility. Espuelas to go with said horses, also more mobility and influence!

It might be interesting to maneuver around the board, booting out all their dudes, then running EDS with Mariel and a few others, send home the dude they were able to unboot, auto-win.

Those sound like good suggestions, and I encourage anyone looking at this deck for inspiration to incorporate them! (Horses are proven tech and so I find them a bit boring.)
