With the home, Erik and Stewart adding bounty, and only the home plus a few non-starting dudes keying off it - aren't the Frameds a little redunant and could be replaced with Curse of Failure or Signing Over the Stores (or more Ricochets to free up Q space for All Or Nothing or Twilight Is Upon Us)?

Good point on Yaple, and it's actually a mistake, for reasons you mention, plus having too many "boot this gadget too..." effects crowding (between the home and Darius Hellstromme).

Agent Provocateur is actually taking that spot, and I think that's the right start.

As for Framed, it's super helpful because the deck is often tight on money all game (gadgets, deeds, CRs), and, because once you can get Election Day Slaughter going, it's really fun to give your opponent the option to sacrifice a 0-INF dude with 4 bounty over a 1- or 2-INF dude without.

Cheers!

Forgot to share:

This is Drew Beauman's deck.

Like, I started with Beauman, and built the entire deck "around" him. My favorite trick to to use his trait to drop a Miasmatic Purifier into play during Lowball, then make the money used to pay for it right back.

An unfulfilled ambition is to use his ability mid Resolution Phase to build a Gadget Weapon which enables a chain into Outgunned then into Darius Hellstromme.

Probably retire the deck after that day...

Point taken on the Frameds, but I'd still argue for squeezing a single All Or Nothing given your high tutoring capacity to find it in those (few) situations where it's super handy.

That would indeed be awesome :-) - how about also dropping one DAM for a Devil's Six Gun which can be invented and fired in response to a Cheatin' hand (and recycles Jokers which can even power an occasional straight flush)?

Ooh I like how you think viz Devil's Six Gun.

As for All Or Nothing, I would only consider running this card in the event I could force people to stay as a location (think Forsaken Hound or Nightmare Realm or Siege Of The Orphanage) because otherwise it just clears folks out (they can flee between rounds), which in my opinion does not advance the game as well as pretty much every other job De Annulos Mysteriis can fetch.

Cheers!

I see your points on All Or Nothing, although that does require the opponent to put all his dudes into one round of shooting.

Granted, this deck isn't really geared towards first-round blowouts or targeted kills, but still, it only takes a single casualty on any dude to let you activate Hellstromme and get an acing + CP, which is an improvement over an unopposed EDS....

Also, I was thinking as much about the first effect, letting you tear down a Fortress, pull the Pieces back apart, or sweep aside annoying conditions on your home.

Oh, here's an even wackier Drew scenario: You already have a Devil's Six Gun in play, but it's stuck out of position on Eli Waters when you have to fight a posse of unwanted dudes.

So, when your opponent cheats, Drew boots to create a whatever Gadget, which lets you activate the home to make whichever opposing dude wanted, which lets Eli use his trait to jump in - and since none of these were Cheatin' Resolutions, you can now fire the DSG.

Findegil, I like how you think!
