This deck plays just like The Fourth Ring, with hucksters and hexes and Hex Slingin', but instead of card cycling and +1 gr per turn we have +2 control points per turn, so you don't have to depend on your opponent building deeds.
Deck structure is such that a 2-stud shooter will get at least a Full House 85% of the time. And you actually have this 2-stud shooter from the start in Jonah Essex, who also happens to be a huckster. A huckster who also happens to be a 2-stud that is quite resistant to Kidnappin'.
Steven Wiles and Bobo are your expendable 1-turn minions that will take some opposition down with them thanks to Takin' Ya With Me. If you get economy going well early, you can get plenty of other studs (Clint, Eve & Alice), though they are mainly there for shootout structure. Oh, Travis and Allie each have 2 bullets too, so they can take ya with them too.
Paralysis Mark doesn't let big dudes get to the town square, Blood Curse helps in a fight as well as to cut down their influence, together with Rumors.
Bobo currently occupies a flexible slot, he might be replaced with either more deeds, more backup hucksters, or a couple Buffalo Rifles.
