Pete and Pete are wizards

Ashcan is Big Pete and Pete S. is Little Pete. Duke is Ellen...or Petunia...probably Ellen.

I agree with your rite of seeking and shriveling for pete, but I think you are really missing out on not playing scavenging + items to combo with his discard ability.

That's fair and I struggled with that, but with the items in the deck currently I couldn't justify Scavenging.  I think that would be a different build.  Right now I don't see needing the reoccur items too much and if I discard items to ready Duke and then use Duke later to retrieve stuff from the trash that might be a dubious action trade.  I guess it would be nice to retrieve a destroyed Rosary or Leather Coat.  I'll have to test it to see if it pulls it's weight.  I feel like if I had more items that would like Scavenge like Baseball Bat or something with charges like Flashlight, a firearm, Liquid Courage ... then I'd feel better with the Scavenge include.


I do like Scavenge in Wendy since I usually put more items in there like Baseball Bat, Rabbit's Foot, Leather Coat, .41 and Flashlight and it's a great include in that deck so I am a fan of the card.  I could try and make that deck for Ashcan, but I wanted to try something different and this is something Wendy definitely can't do with her card pool.

I found building "Ashcan" Pete around what happens if you have no access to Duke to be limiting, I tried a very similar deck and just found my self in the position where Rite of Seeking and Shrivelling were dead cards, or that they had been spend when I needed them. Having a backup evasion and movement plan when things get rough is good, then you can work on getting the Duke back and running.


I ended up running Rabbits foot, since if you fail you draw the card to ready Duke, also discardable for [?] and optionally drawn back with scavenging.

In the deck I ran tonight I put Rabbit's Foot in and it seemed like a good include.  I still like Rite Of Seeking.  I used it quite a bit as an action multiplier.  Between Rite of Seeking, Duke and Look What I Found! it made Ashcan a really effective investigator. 


I'm sold on probably removing Shrivelling and possibly swapping in Scrying which I love.  Either that or Hard Knocks, which I think might be a better idea.  That way I have a repeatable way to boost Duke's strength too. In the build as is I was seeing resources pile up quite a bit.  So HK would be pretty usable.


Maybe also swapping Fire Axe for Baseball Bat considering the changes.  Then Scavenging I think makes a lot of sense.  I feel like with Pete S., Survival Instinct and Lucky! in my deck I'm just fine for Evading enemies.  I usually have an easy enough time doing it when needed and fighting when needed.

Doesn't Duke take an Ally slot? Meaning that playing Pete causes you to discard Duke... or am I missing something?

No Duke does not have the Ally icon.  He doesn't take up any slot.
