This deck is not legal.

Except for the Home Invasion special format hosted by Rich Carter for Kublacon 2018 here in the San Francisco Bay Area! The premise is to choose another home to "invade" which means all of my Sloane dudes are treated as Morgan dudes for the duration of the tournament.

Starters include those listed plus Lawrence Blackwood and Rick Henderson - whom the deck is built around - and whom, typically as a first play, becomes the first draft pick for the Sloane-Morgan Regulators, becoming a stud and instantly ready for trouble, fittin' to "knock one outta the park" combo with Pistol Whip and maybe Wendy's Teethkickers. Meanwhile, as Sloane dudes usually have high draw bullets, the home choice polishes those diamonds in the rough like Buford Hurley, Marion Seville, Rabid Rance Hitchcock, and the Old Man McDroste, intending to play a rock-denial strategy, with the "5 Influence" trait sealing the late game.

Things did not go to plan, I was unable to hit a home run, but I definitely had fun playing around in the unguarded but untended backyard of my neighbors.

Also, I highly recommend the format to other playgroups out there - so many possibilities!

Thanks for explaining the wacky format, perhaps if we're organised we could do some of this at GenCon alongside the various other social events? :) That said, we've got a lot of wacky formats/events on the list already!

Glad it was good fun and that you took your Sloane loyalties to a new home.

I've wanted to do this format (or something similar) for ages. Before AEG dropped the game I was considering a 'gunpowder, treason and plot' event on the bonfire night weekend of that year (Guy Fawkes was from York, after all). With the re-revival, perhaps that could still happen :)
