Welcome to the list. I thought the Bull-bot was active for greeting
our new members, but I haven't seen it posting to the list of late.

One quick thing. You're mailer is overriding the SRCard address with
your personal one in the Reply-To field. Can you check on clearing
that, otherwise most replies will go to you directly and not post to
the list.

Sounds like me and Tony Glinka (with Asher, Rookie and Caric thrown in
on occasion). ;o)

Actually, there are five Ganger HQ's:
- Ancients
- Scatterbirains
- Razorheads
- Halloweeners
- Trogs

I've been playing with the Ancients as an anchor in my Poisoned Elves
II deck (can be found on my web page). And then just yesterday I
rennovated the deck into UGE Unlimited with the Ancients Swapped out
for Halloweeners. (UGE Ultd isn't posted to my page yet, but email in
private and I can send you the deck build).

I love Ancients in the all-elf deck as a Harely Scorpion gives an elf
ganger (a base of Redlines Initiations to make more) +3/+0 (A+3). Lets
the elves with naturally weaker bodies rumble in the same arenas as
the orks and trolls.

I'm looking now at playing Halloweeners as it will hinder those
opponents that like to recycle Challenges and Runners. In a speed deck
like UGE Unlimited that can be a boon.

Nope, Underworld is a Booster only expansion. No additional rules as
arresting and virus tokens are pretty much straightforward as
persented on the cards. You're in an excellent forum for getting
questions answered and accessing rules clarification.

You might also bookmark and look through the SRCard Q&A, an archive of
past questions and answers on the list. You'll find it at Tony's site:
