so, in the aftermath of the KublaCon Melee in the Maze, I have the challenge before me to build a viable deck out of the new Guardian Angels home - which I maintain needs +3 production.

so - a home that totally hinges upon my opponent cheating. that means two things.
1 - I need cheatin' cards that make a difference.
2 - I need to make shootouts - such as to give my opponent more opportunities to cheat. (lowball just isn't good enough)

since the cheatin' cards that I play from the discard pile are aced, I can also look at using off value cheatin' cards in an effort to thin my deck - of course to the detriment of my shootin' in the mean time.

one of the rules hiccups is that the contents of the discard pile are 'semi-public' knowledge. careful examination of the discard pile is out, as that can be used to count cards and know what to expect in a coming shootout. But what about checking to see if there are cheatin' cards in the discard? or which ones? what about my opponent looking at my discard pile first to see if he is afraid of the cheatin' card that he knows I can force play?

second rules question:

does the home ability, triggered "when you play a cheatin' card," (emphasis mine) increase the blessed's value and influence with sufficent timeliness to precondition the playing of Plague of Locusts with maximal effect?

i say yes.

I am going with the rookie.

For starters, the official HEG MRP is:

17 GR to start (-2)
+3 upkeep (+1)

see if that douses or puts gasoline on the fire...
