Greetings Doomies! Last week at GenCon, Pine Box Entertainment hosted a community event at Kilroy's to kick off a great weekend of Doomtown Events. Last year after my Marshal victory, Scott Wisely challenged me to a game, informing me that he's managed to beat every previous US and UK Marshall. We never got around to that game, so we made sure to get this duel resolved this year to kick things off.
I figured I'd dust off my old Oddities Town Square deck from the original Sheriff Series. It's pretty much the same, A/2/7 shooter based around the Allie win condition and some backup options with Hunter's Protection, a point from AFTNF, deeds, etc. Updating the deck it's gained Grey Man, which is even more potent with a Peacemaker, and I dropped off a couple weapons to switch out for newer cards.
The deck was initially designed to disguise itself as a huckster deck based on the starting posse, but this is a bit dated mind you. Only Travis if you don't have a starting hand to fight and first play is to get Brute out in town square to block and use the outfit ability.
In our game, Scott knows his Law Dogs can't let my monsters build up, so he gets in an early fight that goes south. I remember only the last key play, when my Baiju Jar cycled 3 cards in hand (pistol whip w/2 useless cards) and I draw a bottom dealin, coachwhip, pistol whip, and sun in yer eyes to seal in the last fight. Sorry I don't have any more details partner, but those fancy drinks the waitress were serving up may be an attributing factor.
I'll be switching it up next year to give Scott his rematch. Looking forward to it!
