The plan: Combine Mongwau the Mighty, Hex Slingin', and Unprepared to win shootouts. Micah Ryse and Shadow Walk give you board movement options. The other hexes are all board control elements, giving the deck many different ways to interact with an opponent. Win a few fights and use Blood Curse to close things out once you have a few control points on the board.
How to expand: Faith and Fear provides a number of cards for this archetype. Valeria Batten replaces Micah Ryse in the starting gang. Pagliaccio is a cheap fifth starting dude to protect your hucksters from early aggression. California Tax Office, St. Anthony's Chapel and Nicodemus Whateley would come in to replace duplicate dudes and deeds. Making room for Phantasm would move this toward a more controlling deck, while a more shootout oriented build could use This'll Hurt in the Mornin' as an on-value Cheatin' Resolution. Other sets that have good cards for this archetype are Double Dealin', Election Day Slaughter, and Frontier Justice.
Cards from New Town, New Rules: Paralysis Mark and Forget provide new more control-oriented options to Hucksters, and have great synergy with The Fourth Ring outfit. Not shown in this deck, Dulf Zug is another starting gang option if you find yourself hurting for influence (probably replacing Travis Moone, though that does put the starting gang at 2 upkeep).
Structure: Full House (J/10 primary, Q/8 secondary) 16x J, 13x 10, 10x Q, 7x 8
