After talking to madscience, I reworked the deck to the tips he gave me to make it shoot better, and this is what I came up with. When I played against Maze Rats: Landed Rats last night, I was equaling or doing better than my friends 4 stud with a 1 stud in shootouts with a lot of flushes.

Still experimenting with starting posse's.

Cool story:

Last night played a game with this deck versus a Landed Rats deck. I only had two deeds out, Bat's Breath Mine and Archaeological Dig. Three Dudes left, Gunther Hapworth, who was tapped for creating a gadget, Prof. Susan Franklin, and Finneas Von Landinghamg exp (Peevie had unfortunately died from a cheatin' card). Only Fineas was at Bats Breath Mine. Fineas was equiped with a Gatling Pistol. A lot of the Maze Rats had died the turn before in a shootout (which gave me 3 victory points).

So at this time I had 3 VP and 1 CP to my opponents 4 influence. At Bat's Breath, there was Po Yu with a New Hat and another sort of influence bonus (I can't remember, this was about 3 in the morning). I called Po Yu out with Fineas, got in a shoot out, and unfortunately had to cheat again. I got hit with a double dealin', and pulled only one pair to my opponents two pair. Fineas died, so the game had to continue another turn.

In my play hand I drew Secret Bomb. You have no idea how happy I was. I still owned BBM, so I used that, and because Po Yu is a 5 value Dude, I made the pull for him and pulled a 9, acing him. This gave me 3 VP to 1 influence.

We decided to forever call this game Fineas's Revenge.
I'm your huckleberry!

May I humbly suggest the following changes:

The starting dudes are fine, apart from J.Bailey - I've replaced him with Erik Zarkov xp. He makes your Ray Guns free, and never fails to make a weapon.

Dudes - same as yours, but for:
-1 6S Fineas Von Landingham xp
-1 6S Benny Hibbs
-1 5S Pierre Fontaine
-1 8S Julius Bailey (ie, only one)
+1 QS Suzy 309 xp
+1 10S Mad Dog Campbell
+1 8S Gordon Andrade xp (Two ready weapons - Ray Gun + Soul Blast Cannon?)
+1 9H Eric Zarkov xp

Increased the pull range here, and removed Awkward dudes.

KH Rocket Pack
QH x3 Ray Gun
JH x2 Prof. Parnham's Miracle Elixir
10H Chrono Accelerator
10H Infrared Spectacles
9H x2 Flamethrower
9H x2 New Science Magazine
8H x2 Soul Blast Cannon
8H Electrostatic Pump Gun

Again, Increased pulls here - I dont have all the cards I'd like, so feel free to tweak as you see fit.
The extra Ray Guns are there both for value and Zarkov.


4D One Eyed Ike's Weapon Locker
3D New Town Hall
5D Sam's General Store
8D Pony Express
10D Blacksmith

Just a tweak - Blacksmith and One eyed are thematically sound; +4 for 4 cost, and a reduction in weapon cost is handy - since the only reason you're playing Strikes is to make money.

Same, other than I removed the 6's to go to J's - Arson's amazing, but the Soul Blast Cannons need 9s - so just upped it for that reason.
Changed 1 Eureka's Rage - they're great, but they do ace themselves now, and as you're looking for a straight flush, and only have 5 values, you can't afford to lose two of them.

They're only slight tweaks, but your card pool might dictate a different path.
Hope you like it!
