The Old Washoe Club wasn´ t too busy that night, besides a lonely table running a poker game in the very center of the casino, the roulette spinning not too far away, and a few people at the bar, everything seemed calm.

-No idea what´ s in this whisky, but damm, it´ s good- said Henry Moran while revealing his awful hand of cards.

-I´ ve heard they´ ve hired a new employee at Walters Creek Distillery, called The Mixer, a skilled man they say; a native - answered Nicole Sumner, revealing a four of a kind.

-Heck! a Nomad- yelled back Henry realizing his bad luck - I don´ t like them, they are all crazy people, chanting all the time... They´ ve started filling the streets up with those bizarre statues lately. Mad people I swear.

-You ignorant. -replied John "Aces" Radcliffe after revealing his full house with a painful grimace- They ain´ t mad, only nomads. They just smoke and drink a bit too much and chant to their ancestors and use totems as we pray to our God in front of the crucifix. Nothing to worry about.

-Can I have my money? - Nicole interrupted - Anyway, a bit of art doesn´ t hurt anyone, and they surely won´ t setle here for a long time. Shall we continue playing poker?

Butch Deuces was sitting on a shadowy corner at the other end of the casino, serenely playing his own game, not of cards, but stones. After lighting up his wooden pipe and taking some deep puffs, a bright blue dense smoke started filling the place.

-What´ s that smell? It´ s your perfume ma´ am?- asked Henry.

-No, it´ s not! Where does that sound come from?- Replied Nicole.

-Better if we get outta here- suggested John, not knowing what exactly was happening.

Butch was already in trance, chanting in whispers, his body balancing in a circular motion...The night suddenly turned bright blue.

A handful of shamans spread in town also started their rituals, chanting and casting spirits out of the totems and Chief Stephen Seven-Eagles walked into town square. With a satisfied gace, he murmured for himself: We´ re gonna make the Earth sacred again.

Seems a little light on starting Influence, perhaps use the available starting slot for Jake Smiley?

I second the advice.

Or! Swap in Alexander Sequoia for The Mixer, and add Willa Mae MacGowan as your 5th starter dude.

This will leave you with 3 ghost rock if you lose lowball, which is enough to play all but one of your deeds.

Thankyou both for your suggestions. I wasn´ t very convinced with the dudes choices I made in general, neither with the starting posse. I´ ll have to rebuild the dudes list I fear haha.

Let me know if you'd like additional input on this deck's structure

Thanks @jordan caldwell
Yeah, I also should improve deck structure, maybe focusing more on 9s and 10, as I like the deeds I have (and fits the nomad theme as there are not a lot of them). Problem is there seem not to be too many options for dudes on that value... Focusing in 8s would be another options, since I like dudes on 8s more. So maybe I should drop 1 Calling The Cavalry and 1 Comin' Up Roses and add another Unprepared and leave the other slot fo a dude. What do you think?

Seems like your cash flow is low enough that Ricochet (or even Magical Distraction) is clearly preferable to Cheatin' Varmint.

And Henry Moran is almost a must to go with The Gambler's Guns.

Owl's Insight could also help a bit withe cash flow (and give you something to hit lowball cheatin.

Not so convinced by Mischievous Coyote - both the difficulty and the Draw+Stud requirement can be a little tricky.

Angélica Espinosa is always a go-to option if you're short of in-faction 9s - and possibly Angela Payne at 10? And then there's Mariel Lewis....

Worked a bit on the starting posse: Butch Deuces, Matilda Loomis, Alexander Sequoia, Francisco Rosales and Henry Moran (the piece of fiction I wrote is trash now haha). I also increased the dudes quantity to 12 and decreased actions to 12 too. And toyed a bit with the goods. Thankyou both for your help!
