On our ride back from a recent OP event, I pitched an idea I’ve had for a while to @Pr0digy. The idea is to record ourselves talking through the process of building a deck in dtdb in real time (more or less) and then square off in a match on OCTGN using our newly brewed decks - hence, “Brew & View”. @Pr0digy says he’s on board, so to light a fire under this project, I’m soliciting ideas for deck-building restrictions from the community. For example:
1 of each card with the keyword “weapon”
We would each pick a our favorite suggestion to focus a deck around, and then go from there. Looking forward to your comments!
I always find out-of-faction Abomination decks a fun challenge. One I haven’t tried before, and would like to see, is a First Peoples Abomination deck (I’m sure there’s a way for it to make narrative sense).
I love alternative win conditions in card games, like milling, or Exodia. (I’m unapologetically a massive ‘Johnny’). While DT only has one win condition, there are some very alternative ways of getting there.
I would LOVE to see someone else’s take on Dude Heavy Desolation Row. Basicly a killer D.Row deck that can cause opponents to enter into a no win scenario because of the homes trait.
‘No Influence For You’ deck that wins by dropping opponents influence suddenly.
Hot Lead Flyin’. I am tired of being the only one convinced this card is good. I don’t care what ya’ll do with it, I want someone else to make Hot Lead Flyin’ great again.
Ideas. I think I will get more from the “deck building” portion if the decks aren’t 100% jokes. That being said, I am interested in some…unpopular cards.
Second the call for Hot Lead Flyin’
Second the call for Lighting the Fuse
I’d be interested in Control Points on Dudes as a win condition.
Bayou Vermilion Railroad. Richard Slavin has to be in the deck (and ideally do something in it? Not a combo, just…have targets)
A sidekick deck on 9s and 5s. Plus or minus Shotgun to use with Hell’s Coming With Me. Any other sidekicks that might be showing up…Requiem for a Good Boy…Something. All I’d really like it to include for sure is Signing Over the Stores to recur Sidekicks.
