Steve Valladolid's comments, also posted in on 9 Sep 2000 (original on Google here):

The deck never really felt low on sites when I played it during the 2nd qualifier and in the final round. I thought the deck had 4 Family Estates and only 2 Bites but I'm not positive. BTW, Family Estate is broke, people. The deck did feel light on hitters. There were several times when I dumped my hand, played the Market and didn't draw a hitter with 6 new cards. The Sucker Rounds never really payed off for me but that could be because of my inexperience playing the deck. My only other comment is that the deck is explosively fast and very consistent.
