I've been playing around with this recently, and it's a lot of fun. I've taken my Experimental Deck idea and tweaked and rebuilt it in Morgan, as they're the better faction for Mad Science. It's a Showboating deck that can also hold its own in a fight. With Regulators and Cliff's #4 Saloon out you'll have plenty of stud bullets in no time.

The trick to hitting the straight Flush is to not go overboard with inventin'. Really you only want one of each hearts gadget in play at any time. You can still invent the Weapons that end up in your hand, then trade them to dudes who already have a weapon to discard them. Gets stuff out of your hand, keeps the structure intact, and maybe even gets you a CP with Showboating. Maybe not the most efficient use of your ghost rock, but does that really matter?

No Marty for Sky Borne?

Sky's there because she's a cheap scientist with 2 bullets. If you don't need to use Regulators to move someone then use it to make her a stud and she can work as a backup shooter for when something happens to Kramer.

OK, I have to ask: Is Vitality Tonic really worth it? I'd almost always prefer a Guide Horse.

In any other deck I'd agree with you. However, you can't Showboat off playing a Guide Horse.

I get that. I'm no specialist in Showboating, but you do have 8 other Experimental Gadgets in the deck (+4 Rich Man's Guard Dog) to Showboat off. I'd think that Guide Horse could add some cheap risk free maneuverability. But I also understand that this is a theme deck and straight flush on hearts no less, so yeah. Rock it.

I've got an alternate version I've been working on that doesn't Showboat and instead uses lower values. It has Pintos and Pedro as well as the gadgets, and also has Comin' Up Roses to help hit the Straight Flush. It's a different take on gadget decks and is fun to play even if it doesn't always succeed.
