= 55 cards

The surprise card is Hostile Takeover which is often regarded as a coaster. It is used here to win auctions for unique feng shui sites. I particularly like the way that Competitive Intelligence complements this. The rest is just Manchu beatdown I suppose but I find that does well in multi-player and I reckon that this deck would be competitive there too.
