This deck aces dudes left and right. Andrew puts a bounty on their shooter. Frame folks as needed. Plenty of cards to help tilt shootouts. Crank up the brutality with Hangin' and Muggin' as needed.

This is definitely a deck that wants shootouts. Fast Drawing a Shotgun can lead to nasty surprises. Thunder Boy with a Chasuble and a Shotgun exerts considerable pressure.

As long a you're getting into shootouts you can cycle through cards in hand pretty quick.

Do you think you'll start Stewart Davidson when he drops?

The majority of your values are low so would a single Legendary Holster be a good add? "Thunder Boy" Nabbe would have a roughly 50/50 chance of acing a dude, and with either Faster on the Draw or Knight's Chasuble his success rate would go up to over 90%.

Whether you include the Holster or not, I might consider cutting a card to add a third FotD as it plays so well with Andrew, "Thunder" Boy and Hattie.

Actually, my math was off. I forgot the Holster added +2 bullets, I thought it was only +1. In that case, "Thunder" + the Holster alone would have a 90% success rate. That's pretty good! Perhaps even better than a Shotgun because it aces anyone.

Hm Legendary Holster could be quite awesome. I'll try that.

If you do that, consider Doomsday Supply too. Maybe instead of Pearl-Handled Revolver.

Also, as your early money situation is a little tight, how about adding the 1-cost (and 2-bullet) Luke, the Errand Boy and Christine Perfect? Maybe even Buford Hurley too.

Also, playing against your deck, I notice your economy starts in a low place but eventually (and suddenly) spikes as you execute it's plan. Have you considered adding an off-value "clean-up hitter" such as the likes of Xiong "Wendy" Cheng or Abram Grothe (Exp.2) or even Sheriff Dave Montreal?

I second the recommendation for Doomsday Supply, it looks like a great fit here whether you run Legendary Holster or not (which I think fits in well here too).

Looks like a good deck - I think it might even work better out of the core home as you can make dudes wanted more reliably and to start with an extra GR? As wisely noted above, Stewart Davidson looks like a great fit for this deck once the Epitaph expansion lands.

Doomsday Supply would be a great substitution for the PHRs. That's the one expansion I'm missing so I can't try it out myself.

As for the original home, I actually haven't found it to be terrifically difficult to keep enough people wanted to keep pressure on. Not having to boot out your dudes is a major advantage, as is the potential windfall from an extra 2 bounty when a wanted dude goes away.

I also really like that this home aces dudes. Redirecting a couple cards from the discard pile to Boot Hill can have a considerable affect on draw structure.

The weakness, of course, is decks that don't shoot. But in that case, being able to boot your dudes to put bounties on people isn't necessarily going to help. Stewart Davidson will also help to tip that balance significantly, probably replacing Hattie (which is too bad because she rocks).

This deck took down the Vancouver Epitaph - congratulations to the pilot! :)
