I used this deck in a 2 player game, with the other character being wendy. It started out as a variation of "corroder", but that deck is too slow to build up, so i used all out of faction slots to draw cards.
We have completed the first campaign and dunwich up to Blood on the Altar, that's how this deck has so much XP.
3 Mental Trauma
As the lead investigator, Jenny has 3 mental trauma from the first campaign (1 from keeping lita and 2 from stopping the ritual), so we added 2 Elder Sign Amulet, while Laboratory Assistant serves as draw acceleration and horror soak (with Charisma x2 you can have both of them out and any other ally).
- Weapon or Prepared for the Worst
- Hot Streak, Lone Wolf, Emergency Cache
- Laboratory Assistant, Preposterous Sketches
Fist play a weapon, so can deal 2 damage and kill enemies efficiently. When playing Jenny's Twin .45s, spend between 6-8 ressources. Don't play it when you've got a Switchblade 2 out already. If you attack with the switchblade, always aim to get the bonus damage, unless 1 damage kills the target.
After you got a weapon out, you need to improve your income, so play any ressource cards you draw as soon as possible. If you don't have any, play any card drawing effects you can, to get more ressource cards.
While there is no enemy at your location, try to spend one or two action each turn to continue the scenario, like move to unveiled locations or gather clues. The draw acceleration should get you many neutral skill cards for any occasion, so you can beat many skill tests without investing ressources.
Be careful with the Lucky Dice, as you burn through ressources quickly if you use it more than 2 times on a skill check and the chances of getting an autofail increases each time you use it.
Drawing more cards also means you're drawing your weaknesses earlier. You may think that's bad, but in my experience it's much better to draw them early, as you'll have more turns to deal with them. It also helps you avoid situations, where you're in the epic boss fight but remember your sister and need to flee, to search for her.
Advice an Draw Acceleration
Should you wonder, why isn't the most powerful card of the game included in this deck, Wendy had him in her deck, so it wasn't an option for this one (he's unique, so only 1 can be in play). However if you play alone or noone else has him, replace Manual Dexterity with him.
