Peter Trudell won the Faction Wars multiplayer tournament at GenCon 2008 with this deck.
I've been asked "Who brings Jammers to Faction Wars??" quite a few times. I guess the answer is, "I do."
Like A Fish
Needs A Bicycle

Cataract Gorge Gambling House (x2) Hydroponic Garden (x2) Kinoshita House LaGrange Four Mobius Garden Puzzle Garden Stone Dolmens Temple of Celestial Mercy Temple of the Monkey King Kamikaze Cosmonauts (x5) Mad Scientist (x5) Marmojet (x2) Blasting Crew Cyborg Mermaid (x3) Dump Scrounger (x2) The Gimp Monkey Pirates Rocket Scientist (x2) Silverback Bomb Factory (x2) Close Call (x4) Disco Inferno (x2) Far Too Much Dynamite Molotov Cocktail Party Payback Time Sabotage (x2) Scrounging (x4) Steam Powered Tricycle (x3) Who's the Monkey Now?
The easy concept for mine was to get your Mermaids (or Silverback or The Gimp) through past the interceptors. The Trikes help with that (as does the innate abilities of Silverback and the Gimp.)
If you don't have Silverback or the Gimp, I'd replace them with Gorila Fighters. As independent is a good ability for follow-up attacks, They plus Cataract Gorge help in case a prior attack fails.
The FSS help grease power, as the decks needs a moderate amount. If you can't get the Temple of Celestial Mercy, the Sunless Sea Ruins help with card flow. As most of the deck outside of the characters cost 1 power, and don't need more than three resources, the Dump Scroungers help with power generation as well.
You can do without Kinoshita if you have to, but in my experience, LaGrange Four is such a powerful card, get your hands on some.
