This is a nasty deck that harkens back to the time of the dreaded 4th Ring Control, where P Mark and Leonardo "Leon" Cavallo ruled the day. This deck is just as nasty, and possibly more unpleasant to play against.
This deck plays the hit and run, generally avoiding shootouts, but it also isn't necessarily afraid of them either (especially if Theo Whateley-Boyer gets a joker). The draw structure is 15/14, with all off values being playable on the board. Overall, you will be annoying the crap out of them with Phantasm (which I think has the same effect as the old paralysis marks), cursing their dudes with Lost to the Plague, and using Tummy Twister to either protect your deeds, or play it on your opponents deed the turn after you move your dude there to take it over.
Starting posse has 3 hucksters (very resilient vs spot removal), easily 5 influence once you get a couple hexes on The Flying Popescus, and Christine Perfect who allows you to put Lost to the Plague on a dude value J or lower. If you get the Stone Idol, you can target anyone, or even allow christine to target a different high value dude if that dude isn't THE highest value dude. Typically the goal, however, is to remove the opponents influence through high upkeep, and that isn't always the highest value dude.
Another fun side note is how often Lost to the Plague can shut off important dudes, most notably Allie Hensman who is probably the biggest bane of decks like this - but not this deck!
With the recent erratas, Rico Rodegain will have to get the boot for some other Q dude with influence (he was only in there as a cheap 1 Inf Q dude). Also I've played around with various Q of clubs options, including It's Not What You Know... and also 2-3 copies of Takin' Ya With Me. I haven't been able to use Clear Out! yet, but in theory it fits with the aspects of this deck that are very chess like, and rely on spreading your opponent thin, destroying their influence, and craftily plopping down/taking over just enough control down to sneak in a win.
Overall it is very strong and pretty fun to play, but frustrating to play against so probably not the best choice for repeated casual matches.
