Single out your prey, surround them, then go in for the kill! That is the Full Moon Brotherhood way... but what if they don't leave the safety of their darn home? Sow discord among their ranks until one of them gets so mad they storm out of the house!

This is not a serious deck by any means, and I really just wanted to try the semi-janky combo of Full Moon Brotherhood plus Civil War. If they have two or more dudes booted at home, you can use that combo to force any single booted dude that you want out of their home. Just use Full Moon's ability on some random booted dude, and choose that dude plus your real target with civil war, and since Full Moon doesn't allow dudes to move by card effects (which civil war is) then they only have one choice. Hopefully there aren't any out of town deeds for them to run to, but even if they do technically you can be EVEN MORE janky and use another civil war on two of your own dudes to pop one out there to call them out!

Other than that, pretty standard stuff. I love the starting posse (which has 4 effective influence, TONS of bullets for shotgun/LH, and Christine Perfect for making easier shotgun targets) and the pile of starting GR. The Grey Man also helps set up your civil wars, and is just all around awesome. You need to get a deed or two on the board ASAP, since the income is awful, so don't spend all that GR right away. You won't ever win lowball with only 3 off value cards, so the effective income is 0.

But because of only 3 off value cards, you can be extremely aggressive from turn 1, and once you get your holster, there are only 2 cards left in the deck to fail its pull. Junior plus Hired Guns makes for 3 effective chances to grab your holster, or the Stone Idol if you already have it. Stone idol plus christine plus a gaggle of Pagliaccios plus our high bullet starting posse makes for some very effective shotgunning.

The rest is self explanatory - be aggressive, sow discord among their ranks, and hunt them down one by one.

1 or 2 Doomsday Supply would probably be useful here

@InvertedGuard i agree - I don't think any of the off values should change (maybe ivor... he isn't vital), so it'd slightly weaken the draw structure but could very well be worth it, especially if it was just one.

3 off-value seems pretty tight for Bottom Dealin', no?

Also why not Wei Xu or Buford Hurley?

*I mean Zui Waidan...

@jordan caldwell I really like all the ace dudes in this list, and don't think it's worth getting rid of one just to get a dude with a one higher bullet.

My 3s, on the other hand, I'm not in love with. Buford could fit, but I guess the reason I chose Longwei and Tommy were for their influence. At this point only 3 of the 11 non-starting dudes have influence, which is pretty awful.

Bottom' dealin will definitely be awful from time to time. Most of the time it'll be 2 pair, but those 4oak or full houses will pop up more often than we'd probably want. I'm open to suggestions on other options for cheatin' res, but I can't think of any good ones off the top of my head that would fit here (unless we tossed in some off value ones, of course).

I forgot Ivor! 4/11 dudes with influence. Still pretty bad... :)

Jasper?

Heck yeah! Probably would change that Hawley's Rose to a 3rd Peacemaker, but other than that this deck seems pretty well fit for him!
