My old Sanatorium deck, remade as a Full House deck rather than a Straight Flush one. It was very nearly a tricycle deck as it was (only needed one PTPT swapping out) so I decided to run this for the tricycle event on Saturday in Edinburgh. It came fourth.

Use Fiddle Game for income, and to support Putting The Pieces Together, then use Forced Quarantine to force shootouts.

Game 1: The Other Guy Who Uses This Kind Of Deck(@hehasmoments): mirror match! Sort of, the decks were quite similar. Evidently I wasn't the only one who had this idea.

Game 2: Sadly, I really should have taken notes for this one. I remember that it was Russell, it was 4th ring, and that I won, and possibly there were some lucky shootouts on my part/unlucky shootouts on his.

Game 3: Desolation row (piloted by the eventual winner) Just, too many control points in the end, spent too long building up and just plain got outplayed. Well done sir!

My verdict: This deck has potential, although it does cheat on lowball a lot more than the previous, SF iteration. As for the Tricycle format, the lower hands in shootouts were interesting - regularly, the winning hand for a shootout was a full house.

The pile-up of 9Cs seems a slighty unecessary risk of cheating without really improving the draws - perhaps swap in a LeMat Revolver and a Kidnappin'?

Should be no surprise, but I approve of this deck! Good choice for a tricycle event.

@Findegil - yes, good point. It's a holdover from when the deck was a straight flush deck. I think I also may have been considering making 9s one of my values at some point.

@Prodigy I'm glad you do! I plan to continue to use variations on this deck until it's perfected (at which point one or more of the major cards will probably get banned) PTPT forever!
