A further improvement on my first published deck, that came 8th in the Huddersfield 2017
Again, advice/suggestions are welcome.
Use Funtime Freddy to fish up a Phantom Fingers and a Fetch, unless you have a hex in your starting hand. The aim is to get Fiddle Game into play (using Jia Mein (Exp.1)), to fund the upkeep of Putting The Pieces Together then avoiding cheating. You mostly stay at home, using The Sanatorium with Forced Quarantine to target dudes and get control points. In shootouts, you're looking to get a flush of Clubs, possibly boosted by Comin' Up Roses. If you've managed to get 4x Putting The Pieces Together, that's a consistent Rank 10 hand!
1st round - law dogs basic - seemed quite a heavy anti-cheating deck, which suits me fine as my deck hardly ever cheats. I managed to get my conditions out and win a crucial shootout, which handed me the win. 1-0
2nd round - Desolation Row - bandits robbed the town square while the circus sold them dodgy fiddles, then the bandits did a flurry of property development, a Chinese ogre ran out to try and stop then, but a lawyer told him no. ( 4 CP in one turn, even a dedicated slide deck would be happy with that! Also, I overextended myself by booting most of my dudes, hence being unable to sit on the deeds) we had a friendly rematch, as we both found the first match unsatisfying, and I just squeaked a win in that one. 1-1
3rd round - Morgan Regulators - again, got my conditions out, while he put horses on all his dudes. When he tried to stop a Fiddle game job, I had a Nightmare at Noon in hand, which shut out his Calling the Cavalry, blunting his attack. 2-1
4th round - law dogs basic - a deck I'd played against previously, and been utterly trounced by. This time I faired a little better, with it going to time (with me losing) but I still couldn't do much about him consistently reducing all my dudes to 0 bullets. 2-2
5th round - Protection Racket - slucksters. This deck seemed to never get off the ground, or possibly it had difficulty with my lack of deeds and/or lack of cheating. A win for me, but I'd have rather have seen what his deck could do. 3-2
All in all, I faired a lot better than I thought I would(I was still considering major restructuring up until the Friday- possibly a more Full House structure- glad I didn't now) Thanks to Scott and Heidi for hosting, and I hope to see others who were there in the future for rematches/revenge matches/not-being-pummelled-into-the-dirt-too-hard matches!
