Deck Description
Rakano Aggro deck with great drawing, we will get to details later on. It has so small requirements on Influence that you can play any dual Power Card and you are ok with influence till end of the game.

Deck Design
- 28 Units with focus at 2 slot
- 10 Weapons
- 7 "Removal"
- 4 Protection
- 26 Power Cards

Game Plan
To get early drops on the board and chain weapon plays into neutral or plus on cards in hand.
So lets see in details what brings so much excitement to me.
Core card in deck is Oni Quartermaster. Having this on board can close game quite fast.

Shenanigans
< Steady Marshal >
Aggressive drop with nice stats, draw cards mechanism later on, buffer for other cards in deck.
- Crackshot Fugitive: buffs on turn 2, allowing it to attack for 2.
- First-Shot Rioter: they buff each other.
- Oni Quartermaster: allows you to draw for playing marshal into other gunslinger or in most cases draw two cards due to 8 our gunslingers play weapon if another gunslinger on battlefield.

< Axe Sharpener >
Default place for weapon plays, nice stats for 2 drop. Unless it gets silenced you will always get your weapons back to replay them.
- Ornate Katana: cycles itself and you get back when sharpener dies.
- Bear Arms: preserve all buffs it got while it was on sharpener.
- Peacekeeper's Helm: can be played aggressively and later as a removal.

< Crackshot Fugitive >
Grows tall quite fast, gunslinger synergy. Gets buff from weapon she carry, but i wouldn't suggest to play more then 1 weapon on her.
- Steady Marshal: buffs it by simply playing it.
- First-Shot Rioter: buffs it by simply playing it.

< Oni Forgemaster >
Source of neutral to profit card advantage, trades one-to-one with any weapon/spell played on her.

< Oni Quartermaster >
One of the main reasons to play so heavy on weapons strategy, the way you can generate card advantage is insane if it sticks to board.

< Whirling Duo >
Just a good 3 drop and support for our Gunslinger synergy, helps to balance on life total and persist on aggression.
Good target for high on attack weapons like Ornate Katana.

< Svetya's Bravery >
Great defence tool, coz you need to protect your important pieces.

< Retribution >
New addition from set 6, Rebuke when we want to push for damage and there is nasty blocker or Deathstrike when we pushed for damage and want to stay alive on a back swing.

Deck full on synergy and way for aggressive deck to get value out of nowhere. You can go greedy but you can be punished hard for that play. Deck can and will win even without Oni Quartermaster due to high pressure you apply on opponent.

Overall ~50% winrate in casual during testing. (31-30)
I am pretty happy with results i got for so low on Shiftstones deck.

Tips & Tricks
- Redraw. You want to have your early drops and 2-3 sigils, redraw until you have one and/or two drops. Redraw if you have more then 3 sigils.
- Your early drops can draw you cards later. So yes you can chain turns in sequence where you get most value.
By playing Steady Marshal on turn 1, Axe Sharpener on turn 2 and Oni Quartermaster on turn 3 you can get 2-5 cards on turn 4 and buff your team quite well. Any of Steady Marshal or First-Shot Rioter will result in 2 cards drawn and descent bodies on the battlefield, Crackshot Fugitive or Whirling Duo will result in one card drawn.
- Don't block. Unless you are sure that there will be no combat tricks or removal.

Hexxen Eternal Version: 1.44
If you get Milos, Unwavering Idealist during promo period you can replace Whirling Duo with it. This will work other way but will be explosive if you manage to go off.
