Trish Goes Brrrr! by
@Death by Chocolate was a masterpiece. No doubt FFG saw it and took offense, specifically targeting it with Taboos to double its XP cost.
This deck is the result of trying to cut it by 5xp to 19xp for standalones and still retain its effectiveness.
Despite how few changes seems to have been made, cutting was an exercise in frustration due to how lean Death by Chocolate's deck already was. Cut out Mr. Rooks and you don't have enough draw. Cut out LCC (3) and you can't assemble your myriads. Nearly every change resulted in the deck playing sluggishly, lacking draw, lacking resources, lacking consistency.
The solution is to replace the Mr. Rooks with another LCC (3), another Relic Hunter, and Whitton Greene. Whitton digs out the Segments of Onyx and provides a static +1 while any of them is in play, which also frees up the pressure to get Lockpicks into play to start investigating. The second LCC (3) does same thing as Mr. Rook as long as you oversucceed, which happens every turn with Trish anyway. It's even better for timing your weaknesses and doesn't even rely on secrets, and thanks to Taboos is now also cheaper in terms of XP.
Not being forced to draw your weaknesses also means that with a bit of luck, you can discard a weakness without resolving it. With a weakness and 3 other cards left in your deck, if you resolve 3 search and draws (via LCC x2 + Eureka), you can draw 3 cards and discard the weakness since it'll be the only card left in your deck, and you can't shuffle a single card back into your deck.
Without being limited by the secrets on Mr. Rook, you use Astounding Revelations for just cash. Combined with Cryptic Writings (or Crack the Case for better team support), you can easily assemble a pile of resources to get a +5 on treacheries with Well Connected, or to over-succeed even harder on your Lockpicks and dig through your entire deck.
Here's what an effective 0XP version of the deck could look like in a Taboo compliant playthrough:
- LCC (0) LCC (3)
- Plan of Action Three Aces
- Narrow Escape Segment of Onyx
- 2x Working a Hunch nothing (replacement slot for the 3rd Three Aces and Segment of Onyx)
- Celaeno Fragments + Magnifying Glass Lockpicks (1) (after getting Segment of Onyx or Charon's Obol, so Whitton Greene no longer needs a Tome in play)
The only problem is that it no longer uses all the Myriad cards, but if you have strong feelings about that just get 2xp more and add them back into the deck. It'll probably make the deck worse though.
