This deck is really low on sites now that I think about it. Oh well. If anyone has suggestions for these decks I would be interested.

Steve Valladolid's comments, also posted in rec.games.trading-cards.misc 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.
