Starting posse is Micah Ryse, Steele Archer and Travis Moone.

This is fun deck that tries to abuse the Undertaker's ability to make money even when you're acing a dude in your draw hand or play hand. Simply use Ace in the Hole and Raising hell to ace the Bobos and Tyxarglenak or some of your single dudes to make some extra money.

The deck also can do a lose-to-win strategy using Takin' Ya With Me with a lot of those expendable shooters you are running. From your early Travis Moone to your Bobo.

Use Hired Guns to bring back your cheap shooters after they've taken with them some enemies, and of course if you've got the Telegraph Office, use it to make some quick money out of ones like Steven Wiles.

Your draw structure is mainly Jacks and Queens

I like this...most of the decks posted at this point are all just trying to be good decks...I am glad to see that there is jenk in this game...

What are you going to do against Econ/D&D/Landslide decks? You have 1x Kidnappin' to threaten with. So...they'll just ignore you basically the entire game and outbuild you economically and win without a shootout probably.

Depending on how well my early game is, I can either setup a good economy via cycling Steven/Bobo and using him to deny production, or pick off isolated dudes and reduce their influence. Prolly won't work too great, but as I said, this is a fun deck.

Hm, i have a question.

I am not sure if Undertaker works that way. If you ace a card from your play hand or draw hand you do not ace a DUDE. You just ace a card.

It works. Otherwise cards like Recruitment Work wouldn't work either.

db0 is correct. In Doomtown Classic you are right I believe, but it's been ruled in DTR that a Dude card is a Dude card regardless of it's game state. It's a Dude card in play, in your hand, in your deck, in the discard, and in Boot Hill.
