This could work. I will give it try.

The problem I often have here is, that there are challenges I can not
sleaze or fight (like Highway Showdown or Guardian Dracoform) early in
the game, so my opponent has time enough to set up the big guys. If
anyone has ideas for a really fast deck, that can handle some of the
nastier challenges, they are highly welcome.

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
