This is the deck I've been maining since October, and brought to the Gencon 2021 Roundup, where I was third seed after Swiss and got eliminated by Entrician in the semifinals.

Full disclosure: I lapsed in 2014, and only came back in October, so this deck is extremely unrefined.

Basic Strategy: -Spam Abominations to have high influence as long as you hold the town square -Chess out opponents using the outfit and Mourning Mist (which you should probably start instead of the Cemetery, but especially against Protection Racket) -Against decks that appear to have tight draw structures, use Bottom Dealin' to massively swing some shootouts -Use Summoning and/or Soul Cage to get out big dudes cheap -Use Rumors to retake important deeds or steal games against booted out opponents

Changes I would make: -Cut Concealed Weapons for another Ivor -Swap 1 The Stakes Just Rose for another Sun in Yer Eyes -Swap 2 This'll Hurt in the Mornin' for two more Rumors

Huge kudos to all of my opponents, especially those who had to deal with unscripted Summonings. The whole tournament was a blast, and even though I'm bummed I couldn't bring it all home for the full rags-to-riches story, I'm grateful I made it as far as I did. Next roundup, gonna have to write down my games so I can give proper recaps and credit.

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I'll do my best to answer them.

With no on-value Hearts, did you end up having to go for cheatin' hands in shootouts often? If you did, were there occasions this caused problems?

I definitely ended up cheatin’ a lot, and it definitely hit me in the ass a few times. I don’t know what all to change to fix that, but it’s definitely something to consider.
