I ended up facing a Nellie crew, featuring:
Phiona (with llc)
Pale Rider (with llc)
Two field reporters
Took Take Prisoner and Assassinate, my opponent took breakthrough and Power Ritua IIRC.
It ended up going to he end of t5 and a 5-4 loss to me. What swung it was me working off the Rider being the old rules, and I didn't realise it could power up so much quicker now, and on T3 it ran right into the middle of my crew and exploded it's trigger, given Sonnia, Samael, the Peacekeepr, the Thrall and a Stalker Slow, burning 1 and taking two irreducible damage.
Even so, I could have swung it back by using the Stalker's remove condition on Sonnia to last nellie, but I took a work hone call which gave me some nasty news, so I was distrcted (in RL) and missed my own set up, letting the Stalker die when I could have cheated to save him. Because of that Sonnia took an extra turn to kill Nellie and the printing press, which meant I couldn't score Prisoner off the Rider as the Press was just within 4", and I had to kill the rider before it could do its blast again, which in turn mean Sameal was still in melee with the Press so he couldn't move and flip a start marker.
Stupid phone call.
Anyway, still a fun game. At the end of t5 my opponent only had two reporters left ont he table, and one of those was going to die from burning. I'm getting good at murdering with sonnia, I just have to get the scheming down.
MVP of the game went to the Purifying Flame, which managed to pin Alison down all game and eventually killed her on his own. The Little Burning Skeleton that Could.
