Hello Fellow investigators
Welcome to my structure deck series!
We finished with the core set and we decided to buy the whole Dunwich Cycle to feel the Arkham experience. We 'll discuss the new cards we added in our deck and which upgrade choices we take in solo and multiplayer.
I will focus on 19 XP upgrade routes since this is pretty much average in my Dunwich runs. I will also create decks of the Dunwich investigators and I will upgrade everyone setting as the final cycle The Forgotten Age. In the Circle Undone, Taboo List was introduced and I think you will already know the advantages/disadvantages of your favorite investigator in order to create your unique deck.
Let start with the show, shall we?
Let's start with Prepared for the Worst. This card allows us to thin our weapon cards and keep only 4. Your priority is Machete. Keep it in your starting hand and use it for the test icons in the late game when you already have your weapons in play.
The new VIP solo card Dr. William T. Maleson. This card was made for Roland. Costs 1 resource and he's a meat shield of 2/2. While this is more than enough his ability can create some beautiful combos for Roland. 1st of all you can avoid some nasty treacheries which can hurt Roland's sanity. 2nd you can combo the with cards like Roland's .38 Special and Inquiring Mind in locations without a clue. Also, if you have Cover Up in play you can drop a clue and rediscover it to remove it from your weakness.
Art Student is one more great addition to your deck. It helps you auto clue and it is a sanity shield for Roland.
Laboratory Assistant is way better than Preposterous Sketches since you have a body 1/2 in the field to protect you. Also, the increased hand size helps you keep more answers(cards) in some tests and with Roland's poor economy you will find your self stuck with cards on your hand.
"If it bleeds..." vs Smoking Pipe vs First Aid. It costs 1 resource and no action and usually, you will use it on an enemy with at least 2 horror value. Smoking Pipe costs 1 action, 3 damage for 3 horrors and 1 resource while First Aid it's even more expensive. "If it bleeds..." even if it's more situational than the other cards it adds more value as a card since it can be used in multiplayer to heal horror from other investigators like Agnes Baker.
Finally, Fine Clothes is there if you pick a specific scenario to start with.Shortcut adds great mobility to Roland, costs 0 resource and it is meaning you wont trigger attacks of opportunity. Even the test icons help Roland in difficult circumstances when you need that extra boost in a test.
There are 3 options here. The soloer, The Lightning Gun Multiplayer and the Supporter.
Lightning Gun Multiplayer: If you follow this route start your deck with 2x Bandolier instead of Fine Clothes and a Flashlight. This means you will be the main combat character in your group and you will need to play around Lightning Gun.
You focus mainly on and try to one shot most of the enemies.
The Supporter: Another multiplayer option that focuses on helping your allies than being the main combat character. This is a hybrid that can be versatile in finding clues and deal some hits to the enemies. This build focus around Stand Together and Encyclopedia.
2xStand Together = Keep it in your opening hand to create value early on.
2x Police badge = combos well with Wendy Adams plus her The Red-Gloved Man
2x Vicious Blow
This is the route I picked the most since its more fun to play with and you feel more like a guardian than a combat character.
2x Vicious Blow
This is our first Dunwich structure deck. Roland had some great additions in this cycle and has more answers to his main weakness which is his low sanity. I hope you liked the options above and we 'll continue with Wendy Adams new deck.
To be continued..
