Playtest decided to get our jank on for the Newcastle Epitaph event.

I went with some spirited debating (did you see what I did there?) and went 3-1 with a timed loss.

Hit and run to bait and boot your opponent, and enter into vigorous debates . Have a drink to aid your debating prowess, and make sure to deliver strong rebuttals . If your opponent is equally eloquent, remember that it' sticks and stones that will break your bones, and words will never hurt you.

Having tried something like it in the past, I think the newer cards really help this type of deck out. It was great to see it doing well.

Well done on doing well with an Eagle Wardens decks that isn't just Spirit Fortress.

Hopefully this will encourage people who were keen to play Eagle Wardens but found Spirit Fortress effective but dull. Baijiu Jar is great, particularly with this home. Really helps against Rico Rodegain, Sight Beyond Sight, Cookin' Up Trouble or Nathan Shane scouting your hand. Even when you're not facing those specific cards it is great for flushing your hand and dominating shootouts.

This deck did very well in testing against other decks that placed highly in the 16 play Newcastle Epitaph so I hope more people give it a whirl or put their own spin on it. I wonder if there's a version that could work with Black Elk using his high skill value to cast Turtle's Guard? That said,Lydia Bear-Hands' ability already makes you pretty robust

Interesting deck - I have a question about Crafty Hare: how does it ever succeed when the values in the deck are so low?

From what I've seen Crafty Hare is there for Lydia Bear-Hands to use to make other dudes Harrowed, then to be discarded as a casualty (Sidekick keyword) and in very rare circumstances to ward off lone Bounty Hunters. It gives you significant added resilience - with a four dude starting posse losing a dude stings more than normal, even if it is one of the two 0-influence dudes. Plus it is on value!

Crafty Hare is a Spirit for Lydia Bear-Hands and Joseph Dusty Hill, and a Sidekick (also useful for Lydia Bear-Hands). I'm happy paying 1 GR to eat a casualty.

If it's not on Lydia you can try to use it if you want to, maybe you'll pull what you need (Joseph Dusty Hill will be Shaman 3, Eva Bright Eyes is Shaman 4).

Mainly it's just a way to not die.
