75 is too big, as is 10 objectives. I think 70/6 is better (Unless you need
more objectives to add up to your rep total).
>Preacher x2 Mages
This is a good selection, though in your future trades I would look for
Scarecrow, Highbrow, Tempest, and Shasta in place of Nightshade, Jackyl, and
>Gore Tusk x2
I'd look to replace Gore Tusk x2 and Shellshock with another Stomper or two,
and/or a knuckles or two.
I have not found Kromagnus to be a good money maker, and I tend not to count
my rockers as runners, in my deck, I have 20 Runners for runing, 4 Glitz,
and 1 Hawkwind for healing.
>Mage Strike Force
>The Big Chase
>Yakuzza Hit Squad
>Elite Security Guards
>Lone Star Patrol
>Knight Errant Guards
>Guardian Earth Elemental
>Guardian Fire Elemental
>Lone Star Beat Cops
Good selection, variety, I would look to replace the Guardian Elementals,
and a few others without much stopping power.
>Gear (22 ! to many, I think)
This is a very good card, you may consider looking for another one of these,
and/or an invisibility.
Biotech is much better, try looking for a Hawkwind instead
>Detect Enemy x2
Not too great, try getting some Recon instead, perhaps Static, he's cheap,
Your Mages have pretty high defense, which makes this a really good card.
This is also a good card to se, but if you get Deckers, I would replace it
Not a good card, it is too specific to be usefull.
Very well said
>Ruger Super Warhawk (muscles)
This is a good card for good money. I prefer the Defiance shotgun, myself,
because you rarely encounter two challenges it will be needed for in a row.
>Heavy Armor (partial)
>Heavy Armor (full)
Both good cards
>Panter Assault Cannon
What is this exactly?
Allways a good card to use, especialy in a uscle heavy deck.
Look to replace this with eiter Defiance Shotgun, or another Ruger Super
I see that you put this in for Grizzly, but it's not neccesary
Good location, god money
All good cards
>Some things never change
Good stuff. With muscle you may want Wanted!'s
>The Big Break
GAQ is far better than Bad Lunch
>Tiki Head Enigma
>Wake the Dead
>Mystic Testing Grounds
Too many, I'd ditch:
Mystic Testing Grounds (You have too much other gear to use this properly)
Harlequin's Game (You have no deckers, riggers, or shamans)
This was a good deck, other than the above mentioned problems, and I wish
you good luck in finding the cards you need in the future.
