LordManHammer 447

So this deck went 2-1 in our OP Kit 4 tournament. Basically it plays very agressively - with the twist of always trying to control your opponent and create an upperhand shootout scenario via Run Em Down and Pistol Whip (combined with pinto and the outfit ability for card draw and having 2 shootout plays after each other).

It won agains a Law Dogs heavy shooter deck by closing down his studs and eventually forcing him to cheat and a Spirit Fortress deck by Rope and Ride his influence out of the fortress.

It lost against a 4th Ring abomination deck by a tight shootout.

Very fun and for me a bit of a comeback for the horses.

It seems I wasn't the first to come up with this deck so please also see mplains deck here (almost the same):

I count 5 cards difference between this and my deck :) dtdb.co

5-7-8 are definitely the go-to values for horses at the moment. I like this version of the deck.

@mplain LoL! Yeah great minds think alike... :)

@DoomDogQueens might be interesting as well... But this seemed stable... Got that? Stable... ;)

I do have a 5-8-Q list that needs trying out, and an OP event coming up this weekend...

@DoomDog Don't you need Run 'Em Down! and 7's to make this idea bite? Being a regular opponent to Manhammer, Run 'em Down, Pinned Down and the Pinto -> home ability -> Pistol whip was the defining moves of the deck. I would rather advice 5-7-Q or try an 8x3, 15x5, 15x7, 8x8-Q structure fx.. I do love 3's and the pinto-home-shotgun combo is looking mighty sweet :) (Economy might prove difficult?) Besides, Rope and Ride is awesome!

Anyway, looking forward to hear your comments and really hope you try out another version!

@DoowaI've just published my 5-8-Q list. I don't see it being as effective as this list, but it has a slightly different focus and should still be fun to play.
