This is my newest incarnation of my Oddities Shooter. It has transformed several times since it's inception. I finished 2-1 in a small round robin OP KIt tournament with it, losing in the final deciding shootout vs Spirit Fortress.
The plan: Send your aboms to play in town square, and dominate it. This will force your opponent to generally avoid town square, booting where ever they need to get to. If they are foolish enough to move from home to go somewhere, pounce, eliminate, and hold your position.
Hats help with influence when controlling deeds. Soul Cages are awesome. Peacemakers WILL become Hawley's Roses. Abuse No Turning Back.
I use EDS whenever possible. Don't overcommit. Generally, Funtime, Tyx, and the Brute are all you need. Especially as the game goes along.
Round Robin Report:
Round 1: I face off with Spirit Tower, and it ended up in a situation where I couldn't out CP his influence, and he couldn't out Nic my influence (we were both pushing close to 20) I only saw 2 EDS that were usable. The tokens would have just eaten them other times.. The first resulted in a bloody shootout, the second he let go through.
It came down to a final shootout, at time, to determine who would have enough CP for the tie breaker. I won the first round, and used a cheatin' card on him. He pulled an illegal 5 to my legal 4 in the second round, and I didn't have another cheatin'.
Round 2. "It's raining Men" type deck. This went back and forth, but in the end I was able to abuse Soul Cage, and No Turning Back to negate most of the HLF shenanigans, and clutch legal 5OAK's (thank god for The family estate) led to his demise.
Round 3. 4R Spell Control. He went for a gamble with Valeria too early, had to overcommit other dudes to keep her out of trouble, and I ended up smoking him in Shootouts.
Changes: Xiang Feng is not as interesting as I thought she would be. She will simply become 2 more Pagliaccio.
The Tattooed Man is pretty nice, with his low upkeep, and big bullets. But, I'm not married to him.
Ivor XP is hilarious. He's a good time. In my first game, I NTB'd Funtime, to get him in Boothill, Parish'd away Bobo, and then dropped Ivor, getting them both back, and still have rock left over. Surprisingly, I kept him around far more often than I anticipated.
